Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. A weak southerly is expected today through this evening ahead of another cold front. Isolated showers will be possible over the offshore waters today. A cold front will move into the waters overnight tonight. The front, along with more energy from an upper level disturbance, will produce scattered showers with a slight chance for Thunderstorms tonight and Wednesday morning. Strong offshore flow and higher seas will occur in the wake of the front, with occasional gusts around gale force over portions of the gulf waters. Winds and rain chances will diminish on Wednesday afternoon as drier air moves into the region and the pressure gradient relaxes. A weak to moderate offshore flow is expected Thursday becoming onshore by Friday. A weak onshore flow is expected through the weekend.

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.
