Our trip today will be down to the southernmost point of Texas, right across the Rio Grande from Mexico. Weather can be fairly static throughout the summer, but with winter approaching, perhaps there is some intrigue in McAllen.
At 353PM, CT, McAllen was reporting a temperature of 93 degrees with clear skies. After the tail of a cold front moved through earlier today, there is still a great deal of convective activity off the coast from Brownsville, but a vorticity maximum now over the Gulf is inducing a brisk northerly flow, helping the 90 degree weather be a bit more bearable.
High pressure will build into the region through the early part of next week, even as the vorticity maximum sinks towards the Yucatan and deepens as an area of low pressure. This will simply mean a continued dry and somewhat cooler northeasterly flow.

Here is the radar, showing a very large batch of thunderstorms just off the coast. Otherwise, it looks really nice over south Texas.
