|High Tides and Brisk Winds for Coast
Slow Improvement by Mid Week and Beyond
Strong high pressure building in behind an autumn cool front has quickly pumped up winds along the coast and across the adjacent Gulf waters to 25 knots and gusty during the afternoon of Monday, October 27th, which rapidly built seas above 10 feet, surf above 4 feet, and created a tidal run up to the dune line at high tide. Tidal run up and some overwash will continue into Monday evening as the high tidal cycle continues. Those planning to drive along the beach north of South Padre Beach Access 3 should cancel such plans until conditions improve, most likely in total by Wednesday, October 29th.
