Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. A large area of moderate to heavy rain with embedded Thunderstorms will continue to gradually dissipate through the day. As a result, sustained onshore winds have increased to advisory levels...with gusts in excess of gale force. Winds are expected to decrease to more moderate levels around noon. A generally weak to moderate easterly flow will prevail this afternoon. Onshore flow will remain weak to moderate for much of the week with continued chances of showers and Thunderstorms.

area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service corpus christi tx
609 am cdt Mon may 29 2017

Discussion 12z aviation discussion is below synoptic
discussion.

Have cancelled the flash flood watch as heavy rain has shifted
east off the coast. Light rain over the watch area continues to
diminish in areal coverage and additional intense rainfall is not
anticipated. Thus... The flash flood watch was cancelled.

Aviation Back edge of large precip shield should be east of
kcrp kali by start of TAF period... And east of kvct by mid mrng.

Klrd to remain dry this mrng. Only iso to perhaps sct shra tsra
possible this aftn across the region... But areal coverage xpctd
to be too sparse to mention in tafs. GenerallyVFR CIGS today
with brief periods of MVFR CIGS possible. Better chances of MVFR
cigs occrng by late in the TAF period. Weak eserly sfc winds... Vrb
at times.

Previous discussion issued 429 am cdt Mon may 29 2017
short term (today though tonight)...

an intense MCS and prolific lightning producer has pushed off
the middle lower tx coast as of writing with post event light to
moderate rain occurring in its wake. The nocturnal MCS has worked
over the atmosphere pretty good and this should limit much in the
way of convective development today. Ongoing light moderate rain
should continue to gradually dissipate through the rest of the
night.

A weak quasi-stationary boundary is currently draped along the
northern edge of the CWA this morning... And is prog to drift nw
through the day. With the boundary remaining north of the
area... And moisture depth remaining high... An isolated to perhaps
scattering of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon cannot be
ruled out... But coverage should generally by limited today.

Lack of any significant forcing aloft... And boundary remaining nw
of the cwa... Should limit much if any precip development
tonight.

Max temps today are very tricky and current fcst values may be too
low if some clearing occurs during the day.

Note: flash flood watch may be cancelled early once steadier rains
dissipate further.

Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)...

the potential for unsettled weather may continue into the
extended part of the forecast. Moisture decreases slightly on
Tuesday but daytime heating may be enough to generate isolated to
scattered convection. By Wednesday, a shortwave trough will move
out of mexico and then into the southern plains by Thursday.

Moisture improves further on Wednesday with pw values climbing
around 1.8 to 1.9 inches. Chances for showers and storms will
increase again Wednesday into Thursday and will keep 50 to 60 pops
in the forecast for now. Occasional disturbances embedded in
westerly flow aloft will move across the state through the
weekend. Diurnally driven convection will persist Friday through
Sunday and slight to low end end chance pops seem reasonable at
this time. Chances for showers and storms could also be aided by
another frontal boundary late in the period, but there is plenty
of time to sort out those details.

Preliminary point temps pops

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.
