Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Hazardous marine conditions will continue across the gulf and bay waters along the middle texas coast. Strong onshore flow continues as pressure gradient between a strong high pressure across the southeast states and low pressure upstream remains tight across the area. Winds should subside to more moderate levels by Friday night through the weekend. Dry conditions will persist into next week.

Discussion
No changes needed to the forecast at this time. We are seeing a
few very light showers moving onshore near fulton and heading
northward. Will keep a slight chance of precipitation going today
for the eastern counties as a weak shortwave trough tracks
eastward across the state. Otherwise, increased cloud cover today
should keep temperatures a couple degrees cooler than yesterday,
so we should not see significant heat index values today. Winds
are also a bit lighter than yesterday, but still gusting over 25
kt at times.

12z aviation update...

aviation...

MVFR conditions will quickly transition intoVFR later on this
morning for all terminals. The coastal terminals may hang onto the
clouds just a little bit longer. Winds will be increasing once
again with some gusts approaching 30 knots. Can't rule out a stray
shower or two for the coastal terminals this afternoon, however,
confidence is too low to include at this time. MVFR conditions
will again be expected later tonight as low clouds push back into
the area.

Prev discussion... Issued 347 am cdt Thu may 23 2019
short term (today through Friday)...

another mostly cloudy morning across south tx this morning as a
stratus deck developed overnight. Aloft, not much change in the
overall synoptic pattern. The only difference is another strong
shortwave digging across the southwest us. This will lead to
continued surface troughing upstream, which will keep surface
pressure gradient tight allowing for another breezy windy day
across south texas.

A weak h5 impulse will move south to north across western tx
today. This should be the focus for a few showers or storms across
the high plains. Back home most of the area should be dry,
however, the rain chances will be nonzero given the rich boundary
layer. Dry air aloft is the primary limiting factor in rain
chances at the moment. Temperatures will be warm again today,
however, a degree or two cooler out west. In addition, slightly
lower dew points across the rio grande plain will likely keep heat
index values below 105 degrees today.

Overnight tonight the stratus deck rolls back in from east to
west. Winds remain gusty like similar nights in the past week or
so. Friday looks a couple of degrees cooler again with perhaps a
few more low-topped CU hanging around, but with the very dry
layer aloft, expect little in the way of pops across the region.

Long term (Friday night through Wednesday)...

upper level pattern remains as previously forecast. Upper level
trough over the western us with ridging over the gulf of mexico into
the southeast us. This pattern looks to begin breaking down early
next week with the tough ejecting across the central us. After dry
conditions persisting through the weekend, this trough pushing
eastward could provide us with at least slight chances for rain.

Deep moisture still looks rather limited due to the persistent south
to southwesterly flow aloft, but the potential will be there for a
few showers. Otherwise, generally quiet weather is expected. Winds
will be breezy daily through at least Tuesday, but could weaken by
mid-week as the pattern shifts and pressure gradient subsides.

Temperatures remain near to slightly above normal.

Marine...

a strong onshore flow will continued through late weekend and into
the upcoming holiday weekend. Hazardous marine conditions can be
expected with winds and seas exceeding small craft advisory
thresholds. A moderate to at times strong onshore flow is
expected to persist later this weekend through Tuesday. Advisory
conditions will be possible at times. Expect mainly dry
conditions.

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.
