.Short term (now through Tuesday): an MCS has moved across much of
deep south texas and the rio grande valley overnight. Brownsville
radar currently shows an intense line of convection extending from
the gulf waters east of kenedy county to south padre island to near
brownsville. This convection is expected to move east and south of
the area around sunrise. The atmosphere is expected to stabilize in
the wake of this feature. Have significantly lower pops and qpf
values for the rest of today. However, some additional convection
will be possible later today and tonight. The combination of
abundant moisture in place and daytime heating should a chance of
rain on Tuesday. Temperatures will remain slightly below normal due
to the increased cloud cover and rainfall.

.Long term (Tuesday night through Sunday): unsettled weather
pattern continues through the remainder of the week. A weak cold
front meanders across south texas through the first half of the
period, while surface high pressure remains over the gulf of
mexico maintaining an east to southeast onshore flow. The
combination of the boundary in the area, plenty of moisture, and
disturbances in the flow aloft will support the chance for showers
and thunderstorms, with the best shot on Wednesday. Rain chances
begin to taper off some after Wednesday, but linger in the 20 to
30 percent realm. Near normal temperatures expected Wednesday and
Thursday across the region. A steady warm up in temperatures
returns for the end of the week and this weekend, with diminished
rain chances and cloud cover.

.Marine (now through Tuesday): buoy 42020 reported east-southeast
winds around 10 knots and seas of 4.3 feet with a period of 6
seconds at 03 cst 08 utc. A line of thunderstorms will continue to
move east-southeast across the gulf waters for the next few hours
and will produce heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning. A
stationary front across south central texas will support a weak
pressure gradient along the lower texas coast today through Tuesday.

Light to occasionally moderate east to southeast winds and low seas
expected to continue through the forecast period.

Tuesday night through Friday night... Fairly weak pressure gradient
will maintain light to moderate east to southeast winds and low
seas through Wednesday afternoon. Pressure gradient begins to
strengthen late Wednesday as surface high pressure over the
northern gulf of mexico increases winds across the lower texas
coastal waters. Seas build in response to the strengthening flow
and small craft exercise caution to marginal small craft advisory
conditions will be possible Wednesday night into Friday.

Bro watches warnings advisories
Tx... None.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
