High risk of rip currents today due to elevated seas and strong easterly swells in the Gulf. A high risk of rip currents means life threatening conditions are likely and swimming should be avoided until conditions improve. Chance of showers and partly cloudy skies expected today with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. White sand and light surfaces can double UV exposure, so remember to apply and re-apply sunblock throughout the day. www.weather.gov/rgv
