HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — A cold front swept through the Rio Grande Valley early Tuesday morning, bringing a squall line of showers and gusty winds.
According to the National Weather Service, as the cold front arrived, winds peaked at 39 mph in McAllen, 44 mph in Harlingen and 37 mph in Port Isabel just before 6 a.m.
Rainfall across the Valley was very brief. In addition, drier and cooler air is now in place across the Valley and will be comfortable today.
Highs this afternoon will reach the low 80’s with skies gradually clearing through the day.
This cold front will not bring a big temperature change like we saw with last week’s cold front. High temperatures for the rest of the work week will be slightly cooler, reaching the lower 80’s for Tuesday and Wednesday. Morning and nights will be hit or miss when it comes to jacket weather. We could see lows in the 50’s for Wednesday morning, but quickly warming back up to the 60’s for Thursday and Friday morning.
However, another cold front is on the way for Friday afternoon that will bring more rain chances and keeping high temperatures in the 80’s through the seven day period.
