Short term (today through tonight)
A cold front has been moving through the region early this
morning. Cool, autumnal temperatures are in store for today, with
highs only reaching the upper 60s to lower 70s. North winds can
be expected over land throughout today, bringing drier, cool air
into the region. A few lingering showers over the coastal waters
this morning will quickly clear the region by this afternoon. A
tighter pressure gradient over the gulf will maintain a strong
northerly flow over the middle texas coastal waters this morning,
and a small craft advisory is in effect for winds and seas. Low
pressure over the gulf of mexico will shift further east this
afternoon as high pressure settles further south into south texas.

Precipitable water values will continue to drop to below 0.5
inches by tonight, with no mentionable chances of rain tonight.

Temperatures tonight will drop well below normal as continued caa
combines with clear skies, light winds over land, and very dry air
across the region. Anticipate lows to fall to the upper 30s across
the victoria crossroads northern brush country, and into the low
to mid 40s further south.

Long-term (Thursday through Tuesday)
Thanksgiving appears to be a beautiful chamber of commerce day with
temperatures slightly below average, plenty of sunshine and
decreasing northerly winds. Upper level high pressure stays over
south texas through the weekend, resulting in a slight warming trend
Friday and Saturday with another weak boundary on Sunday. This
boundary will do little with the overall sensible weather, just
result in a brief wind shift but winds return to onshore by Sunday
night. The upper ridge moves east on Monday and an upper trough
moves toward the central plains on Tuesday. However, it looks like
any impacts from this trough will be beyond Tuesday, so overall the
weather forecast remains dry this thanksgiving weekend and into
early next. Concerning temperatures, the temperatures will warm
slightly Friday and Saturday with perhaps a slight drop of a degree
or two for Sunday. Onshore flow and moisture return on Monday and
Tuesday. Overall, concerning temperatures generally stayed on the
cooler side of guidance initially, then went with a blend of
superblend ekdmos ekdmosbc adjusting temperatures a bit mainly toward
the coastal areas.

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.
