Next Chance for Rain: Sunday.

Those Clouds Lock in the Cold!

Ah, what a winter it has been!  Tuesday will be yet another cold, cloudy, rainy, foggy day!  One area of improvement will be the winds.  The NE winds will range from 5-20 mph.

How to stay safe in Cold weather

Hottest day ever recorded in Brownsville is...

Today was a very warm day to start off the month of March. Highs in the upper 70's and some areas saw highs in the 80's.

Could the Gusty Winds Warm Us to the 90s?

Prepare for a windy weekend and a warm weekend too!  Friday's high in McAllen was 88!  Highs in the low 90s will be possible both Saturday and Sunday in the Upper Valley.

The Giant Nuclear Furnace Returns

Oh, boy, just in time for the weekend, the sun (our big nuclear furnace) returns and warms the RGV up!  Expect highs to climb to the 80s with partly cloudy skies.

Gardening Tip: It's not dust; it's powdery mold!

What a beautiful day in the RGV!  Sunshine, highs in the 70s!  Maybe you enjoyed the weather outside in your garden, the way I did. 

Ahhh.... Back to Normal. For 1 Day.

On Thursday, Harlingen came one degree shy of the record of 95 set back in 1912.  Bayview, McAllen, and Weslaco hit 90!  We knew it would be the warmest day of the week, but my goodness!!!

Very Warm Winds Blow Away the Fog

The RGV will start Thursday morning with a little patchy fog but end the day with a cold front.  Thursday will be a very warm day with highs in the upper 80s in the Upper Valley.  Most of the day, the South winds will gusts to near 40
