Just maybe, when temperatures were in the 30s with cloudy skies and cold rain showers, just maybe the people of the RGV wished a little too much for warmer weather. Well, we got! Oh, boy, did we warm up!
A big ridge of high pressure has settled atop northern Mexico. This will mean temperatures in the low 80s for the Lower Valley, upper 80s for the Upper Valley over the weekend.
Please keep in mind that a normal high temperature for Brownsville this time of February is only 74.
Be careful what you wish for, and in the meantime, enjoy the sunshine and warmth.
Official High Temps. for Friday:
Harlingen and Weslaco: 85
