Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Winds will be light and variable over the middle texas coastal waters tonight. Onshore flow will resume on Friday becoming weak to moderate by Friday night as a surface high pressure moves east across the waters. Moisture will increase across the region over the weekend. A cold front will move into the coastal waters Sunday night, bringing a moderate to strong north to northeast wind by Monday morning. The combination of a coastal trough and the boundary, along with increased instability and moisture, will result in a chance for showers Sunday through Monday. The passing cold front and a coastal trough that forms early next week will bring scattered to numerous showers and isolated Thunderstorms to the region Sunday through early next week.

Short term (tonight through Friday night)
Mostly clear skies and dry, cool conditions will continue tonight
with min temps a tad warmer than last night as the airmass continues
to modify. Surface high pressure will slowly move east resulting in
a weak onshore flow developing by Fri and beginning to usher in a
few low clouds across the coastal bend then spreading north and west
through Fri night. This will also lead to gradual warming. As
dewpoints increase through Fri night, the chance for patchy fog will
increase, however most model guidance forecast soundings show temp-
dewpoint spread still too large for fog to develop. Thus, will not
mention in the Fri night's forecast at this time.

Marine
Light and variable winds will become increasingly southest through
fri afternoon as surface high pressure moves east across the gulf
waters. A weak to moderate onshore flow is expected by Friday
afternoon through Fri night.

A moderate onshore flow will persist over the weekend. A cold front
will push through the waters on Sunday night into Monday morning
bringing a moderate to strong offshore flow. Scattered to numerous
showers with thunderstorms will be possible Sunday through mid
next week. A coastal trough will develop early next week, with
winds shifting from a north northeast flow back to an easterly flow
during the mid week.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
A moderate onshore flow will bring an increase of
gulf moisture into the region along with warmer temperatures on
Saturday. Weak disturbances in the flow aloft along with a weak
surface trough ahead of an approaching cold front will bring an
increasing chance for showers and storms Saturday night into Sunday.

The cold front is still progged to push through the region on
Sunday night into Monday. Scattered to numerous showers and some
thunderstorms will continue to be possible on Sunday night and
Monday. A coastal trough will develop in wake of the cold front.

Higher moisture will remain over the region during the early part of
next week, especially over the coastal waters. The available
moisture along with the coastal trough and weak disturbances in the
flow aloft will provide continued chances for showers and storms
through the middle of the upcoming week. Another cold front and
upper level disturbance may move through the region on thanksgiving
day, though confidence is lower at this time given model
discrepancies and timing.

With regard to temperatures, warmer conditions will persist over the
weekend. In wake of the cold front afternoon temperatures will drop
around 15 degrees between Sunday afternoon (highs low 70s) and
Monday afternoon (low to mid 50s). A slow warming trend will then
develop through the rest of the period.

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.
