.Short term (today through Saturday): low to mid level moisture
across the western gulf of mexico will continue to move northward
across northeast mexico and southwest texas ahead of the 500mb
low trough across the western united states. The NAM progs 500mb
vorticity across northeast mexico this morning moving eastward
across south texas this afternoon. Some elevated convection may
develop with this feature today but rain chances remain low across
the CWA today. As the 500mb low trough across the western u.S. Moves
eastward tonight... Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
well to the north of the area. The NAM and the GFS continue to prog
some elevated convection developing across northeast mexico and
moving across the southwest portions of deep south texas late
tonight into Sat morning. Will continue to mention a chance of
showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms tonight into Saturday
as there is sufficient instability aloft for convection to develop
with additional vorticity moving across northeast mexico late
tonight into Sat morning. Near normal temperatures will prevail
across the rio grande valley this afternoon and Sat afternoon with
mostly cloudy skies across the area today through Saturday.

.Long term (Saturday night through Thursday): the main axis of the
h5 trough will be moving to the northeast by Saturday evening,
with ridging beginning to build west of the region. This will
shift winds aloft from the northwest, finally helping a cold front
through the region Monday evening. While most of the midlevel
energy will be well to the east, there may be enough surface
forcing with the front to spark a few showers as the front passes
Monday night into Tuesday morning. Temperatures will warm ahead
of the front on Monday, reaching the mid to upper 80s.

Temperatures will only moderate slightly behind the front for
Tuesday and Wednesday, only retreating to around 80 degrees.

today through Saturday: seas were near 2 feet with south to
southeast winds near 10 knots at buoy020 early this morning. Light
to moderate southeast winds will prevail across the coastal
waters today with low pressure on the lee side of the rockies and
high pressure across the gulf of mexico. Moderate southeast winds
will prevail across the lower texas coast tonight into Saturday
with a pacific cold front moving through northwest texas sat

Sunday through Tuesday: southeast winds will continue Sunday and
Monday but gradient between ridging to the east and lo pressure
passing to the north will be modest at best. This will keep winds
only around 10 knots into early next week. A weak cold front moves
into the area Monday night, with winds shifting to the northeast
around 10 knots. The lighter wind regime through the period will
keep swells from increasing considerably, keeping them generally
2 to 3 feet through the middle of next week.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. 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.
