12z aviation update...

Aviation
MVFR conditions will be improving throughout the morning from west
to east with the coastal terminals hanging onto low clouds just a
bit longer. Winds will be gradually increasing through the day
for all terminals.VFR conditions expected this afternoon through
this evening. Shortly after sunset, low clouds will move back
into the region dropping much of the region back into MVFR. Can't
rule out some minor vis concerns, but these should be very brief
and limited to MVFR at times.

Prev discussion issued 329 am cdt Wed may 22 2019
short term (today through Thursday)...

southwest upper level flow continues again across the region this
morning. As the low across the plains continues to lift out,
winds have relaxed slightly across the region. That said, breezy
conditions are still occurring with the steady southeasterly flow
still in place across the area. The continued and strengthening
southeasterly surface flow should continue to create minor
coastal flooding during high tides.

Through today and especially tonight another low pressure will
begin to take shape upstream once again increasing pressure
gradient. Surface winds will gradually increase this morning,
especially as the low level stratus deck mixes out later this
afternoon. Strong surface heating will raise temperatures across
the rio grande plain into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees.

Although some drier air will mix across the west, enough low level
moist air will advect to allow heat index values to increase to
the 105-109 degree range. Will issue an early season sps for the
heat out west. We will not be far from heat advisory criteria so
any slight upward adjustment in temps and dews will likely lead
to the need for an advisory.

Tonight low stratus moves back into the region and again winds
will be increasing, especially closer to the coast. A h5 upper
level impulse will ride northward out of northern mexico later
tonight and especially during the day Thursday. Although much of
the lift will reside across western and central texas, can't rule
out some isolated shower t'storm develop across the victoria
crossroads Thursday afternoon.

Long term (Thursday night through Tuesday)...

persistent upper level trough will be anchored over the western part
of the us while ridging builds across the northern gulf of mexico
into texas. This will keep a warm and dry south to southwesterly
flow aloft with south to southeasterly flow at the surface. Moisture
will be confined to the lowest levels which will keep rain chances
minimal to none. Expect continued above normal temperatures with
highs in the upper 80s to 90s across the all of south texas daily
with lows mainly in the 70s. A moderate to at times strong surface
wind can be expected. Heat index values will be around 100 west
daily, and should be mainly in the 90s elsewhere.

Marine...

although a break in the strongest winds is occurring this
morning, winds and seas will gradually increase once again as a
low pressure begins to take shape upstream. Small craft advisories
have been extended through Thursday afternoon at the very least.

Going into the long term... Marine conditions will remain elevated
through the end of the week with a persistent moderate to strong
south to southeasterly flow. A strong ridge of high pressure will
remain anchored over the gulf of mexico into south texas.

Conditions may improve a bit by the weekend as low pressure to the
northwest retreats slightly. Southerly swell will persist through
the period.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
