High pressure continues to build over our region resulting in lessening rain chances as we approach the weekend. Lows will also become slightly cooler as winds become more northerly. Coastal flooding continues across Gulf-facing beaches in South Texas thanks to higher than average tides and easterly winds. 

Currently, Tropical Storm Nate is moving over Honduras and the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Torrential rains have brought flash flooding and the threat of dangerous mudslides to much of Central America. As Nate moves into the central Gulf of Mexico this weekend the risk of dangerous rip currents will increase drastically in our area beaches. This will create less-than-ideal, even dangerous, swimming conditions. Currently, models show that Nate is likely to make landfall in the Northern Gulf, from Louisiana to Florida, as a hurricane Saturday night into Sunday morning. 

Thursday night expect tranquil conditions and partly cloudy skies. Low of 72.

Friday will be mostly sunny and drier. Winds will be light and variable. High of 89 degrees.

Saturday will be even sunnier and hotter. High of 92.
