Short term (today through Sunday)
Winds are pretty light and variable this morning and with surface
moisture on the rise, have seen periods of fog this morning
across inland areas. High cirrus streaming in from the west has
helped visibilities to bounce around to improved visibilities
this morning, but a few locations could still see visibilities
lower to 1 mile at times.

For today, onshore flow will increase as surface low pressure
develops across the southern high plains. Computer models continue
to develop a coastal trough gradually today and into tonight which
will increase moisture and rain chances. However for today, should
be mostly an increase in cloud coverage with a few sprinkles
possible underneath the cap. In the meantime, a cold front will
push through the central plains with the aid of a 1040mb surface
high and sheared west to east h5 trough.

For tonight, an increase in moisture and isentropic lift will lead
to isolated to scattered showers. The increase in moisture will
also lead to warmer overnight lows in the 60s. Low ceilings
combined with rain showers may lead to patchy to areas of fog
tonight.

For Sunday, the surface high across the central plains will have
weakened some but the mid-level trough will continue to slide
east with the surface cold front expected to continue to move
south and reach northern parts of south texas from near cotulla
to victoria toward the noon hour Sunday. Have leaned more toward
the NAM timing as it typically has a better handling with shallow
cold fronts. Daytime highs for Sunday will be tricky and highly
depend on the timing of the front. That said, with the current
fropa timing more during the mid-day afternoon period, day time
highs may be able to reach into the upper 60s prior to the front
across the northern tier with highs in the low to mid 70s across
the southern counties and along the coast. Again, temps will
depend on timing of the front and could change with any increase
or decrease in speed of the front. Scattered to numerous showers
are expected ahead and along the front, with greatest focus across
the eastern half, roughly east of highway 281, as the frontal
boundary meets up with the lingering coastal trough, stalling
along the coast.

Marine
South-southeasterly wind will increase to scec at times,
especially across the offshore waters in response to developing
low pressure across the southern high plains. This combined with
a coastal trough will increase moisture over the region leading
to isolated to scattered showers tonight, increasing to scattered
to numerous showers for Sunday.

A cold front will push through the gulf waters on Sunday night
into Monday morning. This front will bring chances of showers to
the middle texas coastal waters Sunday night into Monday. A
coastal trough will then develop Monday and remain across the
western gulf of mexico through mid week. This will keep an
unsettled weather pattern over the gulf waters with additional
chances of showers. Moderate to at times north to northeast winds
can be expected through much of next week.

Long term (Sunday night through Friday)
The cold front will hang up across south texas Sunday evening,
somewhere close to the coast. With the boundary in the area,
chances for showers will continue Sunday night and have 40 pops
out west with 60s pops over the coastal bend and gulf waters. A
coastal trough then develops on Monday across the western gulf of
mexico. Deepest moisture will reside near or just off the coast
and will keep highest rain chances across the east on Monday.

Heading into Tuesday, coastal trough may get briefly disrupted
and or shifted to the east a bit as a quick upper level shortwave
trough moves across south central texas. Most inland locations may
actually remain dry on Tuesday with showers primarily over the
immediate coast and middle texas coastal waters. Coastal trough
moves back closer to the texas coast on Wednesday in advance of a
stronger shortwave trough. As a result, unsettled weather will
return on Wednesday into Wednesday night as additional chances of
showers will be possible across the area. Trough axis will shift
east of the area Wednesday night into Thursday morning, which will
bring an end to rain chances from west to east. Outside of some
lingering showers over the waters, thanksgiving day may end up dry
across much of south texas. Quiet weather will continue into
Friday.

Regarding temperatures through the extended, Monday will be the
coolest day of the week. Highs will only be in the middle to upper
50s with low 60s near the coast. Temperatures will only rebound into
the 60s Tuesday through Thursday, and by Friday into the low 70s.

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.
