Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. A weak to moderate offshore flow can be expected tonight and Wednesday. Isolated to scattered showers will be possible late tonight as a weak frontal boundary moves through the region. Weak to moderate northeast flow will then develop by Wednesday night. Rain chances will continue across area waters through the end of the work week and into the weekend. An isolated Thunderstorm or two cannot be completely ruled out Friday afternoon and Saturday before a cold front moves across the region. Weak to moderate northeast winds will persist on Thursday before becoming southerly on Friday. A cold front is expected to push into the area late Saturday. Showers, possibly a few isolated Thunderstorms, will be possible across area waters with the front and there may even be some Thunderstorms as well. Drier conditions are expected for Sunday.

area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service corpus christi tx
1140 pm cst Tue feb 19 2019

Discussion See aviation section for 06z tafs.

Aviation Low stratus with ifr lifr ceilings will remain over
the region through most of the overnight period. Patchy light
drizzle will continue over another couple of hours and provide
MVFR vsbys. As the upper trough lifts to the northeast, the
drier air in the lower levels over the edwards plateau will
spread southeast into south texas around daybreak. Ceilings
are expected to lift to MVFR between 09-11z with clearing
skies reaching lrd by 11z. Condition will rapidly improve to
vfr between 13-15z over the coastal plains.VFR conditions
will prevail from late morning through the evening hours.

Prev discussion issued 917 pm cst Tue feb 19 2019
discussion... Previous forecast looks more or less on track. Will
see the potential for scattered showers near the coast tonight as
a little bit of upper forcing interacts with the deep layer of
low level moisture in place. This will be in addition to the
patchy drizzle which is currently occurring. Along the coast we
did recently see minor coastal flooding at bob hall pier at high
tide and will likely see a recurrence tonight. The rip current
risk looks to have subsided and it's mention will be removed from
the cfw.

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.
