Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Moderate rain across portions of the middle texas coastal waters will continue to gradually dissipate through the day. A low pressure system located across the offshore waters is expected to restrengthen winds with gusts to gale force for waters north of port aransas and out to 60 nm offshore. Bays and waters south of port aransas are expected to be at advisory levels through the afternoon. Winds are expected to decrease to more moderate levels by late afternoon. Onshore flow will remain weak to moderate for much of the week with continued chances of showers and Thunderstorms.

Discussion
Wind advisory cancelled early, but gale warning extended for the
northern gulf waters until 1 pm as per hrrr and hgx collaboration.

Small craft advisory for the rest of the waters. Coastal flooding
continues but is coming down. Rip current risk remains in effect.

Did adjust temperatures mainly down today due to the clouds, rain,
and expected lower temperatures. Other parameters were adjusted as
needed. For now, weather grids were unchanged. Busy 18 hours. That
is all for now.

Previous discussion issued 1022 am cdt Mon may 29 2017
discussion...

did a quick update due to winds strengthening in the wake of the
storm system that moved through earlier this morning. Due to
winds, went with a gale warning and wind advisory along the coast.

Also, tide rapidly increased to 3 feet msl, therefore, went with
high rip current risk and coastal flood warning. Winds are already
diminishing and may cancel gale warning and or wind advisory
early. Feel that tides will remain abv 2 feet for several hours.

Previous discussion... Issued 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 occurring by late in the TAF period. Weak eserly sfc
winds... Vrb at times.

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.

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.
