Onshore flow will increase tonight and Tuesday...as low pressure develops and deepens over the southern plains. Small craft advisories may be needed by Tuesday afternoon, continuing through Wednesday. A weak boundary will likely move offshore Wednesday night with winds briefly shifting northeast.

Discussion
See aviation discussion for 12z tafs.

Aviation
Satellite is showing mid/high cloud cover at times over the area,
and this will continue for most of the day. Will likely see sct-
bkn clouds AOA 15000 feet. Light winds in the morning gradually
become southeast or south and mainly 11 knots or less (higher in
kcrp as usual). Main concern after 25/00z is whether fog and/or
cigs will develop by the end of the terminal forecast. Believe
with 30 knot jet by 12z, will more likely have CIGS before vsbys,
but am not sure we will have vsbys. Will go with MVFR CIGS at kali
about 09z, tempo MVFR at kcrp, butVFR at klrd. At kvct, will
keep scattered clouds but MVFR vsbys (5sm for now) mainly based on
model soundings.

Previous discussion /issued 351 am cdt Mon apr 24 2017/
short term (today through Tuesday)...

enjoy the cooler temperatures and lower humidity this morning as it
will rapidly change over the short-term, with increasing winds as
well. High pressure moves east as low pressure develops over the
southern plains tonight and Tuesday. This will allow more moisture
and an increase in winds. However, by Tuesday afternoon the surface
low moves toward the ks-ok border which will bring boundary layer
winds more to the south-southwest, resulting in very warm
temperatures on Tuesday. Thus, after today with highs in the 80s
away from the coast, expect highs on Tuesday in the 90s away from
the coast. Could even see 100f in laredo on Tuesday, as 850mb
temperatures exceed 25c. Winds tonight will help to keep
temperatures up a bit overnight, but still expecting inland lows in
the 60s. Breezy if now windy over the coastal regions on Tuesday,
and breezy near the crossroads area as well. Generally stayed on the
warm side of guidance for this forecast package. No rain in the
forecast, with the cap in place on Tuesday with the south-southwest
winds.

Marine (today through Tuesday)...

scec conditions develop overnight over the southern nearshore waters
and spread farther into the gulfmex by morning. Looks like sca
conditions will develop over the southern gulf waters by Tuesday
afternoon, and south winds increase to around 20 knots in the
afternoon.

Long term (Tuesday night through Sunday)...

southwesterly flow in the mid levels beginning Tuesday night will
set the stage for even warmer temperatures on Wednesday. 850 temps
as warm as 25 degrees progged out west in some models should
translate to mid and upper 90s for much of the area and around 100
far west. Surface boundary moves west to east across the region
Thursday bringing much drier air which will help to realize temps in
the 90s. Lack of moisture and mid level cap will preclude any precip
chance. The boundary should stall briefly near the coast before
getting a reinforcing push through on Wednesday night. High pressure
ridge will then quickly shift eastward bringing a return to onshore
flow by Thursday afternoon.

Slightly cooler temperatures likely on Thursday, however a quick
rebound to hot temperatures by Friday. Highs west likely to top 100
with just about all models in agreement.

After another hot day (highs topping 100 west again) on Saturday, a
stronger boundary (cold front) looks to move through on Sunday.

While moisture is still limited by the weekend, we could get some
isolated convection in the vicinity of this front. Temperatures
should cool back to near normal for early next week.

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.
