Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. SEa fog will persist along the middle texas coast through today and into the early morning hours of Saturday as warm moist air flows over the cooler shelf waters. A light northeast flow is expected to continue this morning but will shift to onshore throughout the day as a warm front moves north. Scattered showers and an isolated Thunderstorm or two will be possible. Dewpoints in the mid to upper 60s behind the warm front will move over the cooler shelf waters this evening, which will result in another round of dense sea fog. Visibilities will begin improve around Sunrise Saturday morning as a cold front swings through the region and winds shift to the northwest. A moderate offshore flow is expected for Sunday as high pressure builds into the region. Onshore flow will develop Sunday night. Easterly flow will bring rain chances back to the area on Monday. A coastal trough will provide scattered showers Monday night into Tuesday.

Discussion
The forecast was updated to maintain a mention of fog through
tonight as patchy fog persists across the western half of the
forecast area. Visibilities may improve during this afternoon, but
a warm front will move inland by this evening, and fog will once
again spread across much of the area. Updated text and graphical
products have been sent.

See below for updated 18z aviation discussion.

Aviation
Ifr lifr flight conditions persist at most TAF sites from the
coastal plains eastward. Ceilings and visibilities may briefly
lift into the mvr range before sunset. A warm front will move
north during the period causing the winds to shift to the
southeast. As low- level moisture streams northward, flight
conditions will once again deteriorate areawide and ifr lifr
ceilings and visibilities will prevail through the nighttime
hours. As a cold front moves across the area Saturday morning,
likely entering the area between 23 10z and 23 12z, scattered
convection may develop. The front will move quickly across the
area and should move southeast of all TAF sites by 23 15z. After
the frontal passage, winds will become northwesterly and increase
in speed to between 10 and 20 kts. Flight conditions will also
rapidly improve into theVFR range as drier air erodes the low
clouds and fog.

Marine
Areas of dense sea fog continue along the bays and near shore
waters and will likely persist through tonight and into early
Saturday morning. Visibilities should begin to improve very close
to sunrise Saturday morning as a cold front approaches and drier
moves into the region from the northwest. Therefore, the dense fog
advisory was extended until 6 am cst Saturday morning.

Prev discussion... Issued 409 am cst Fri feb 22 2019
short term (today through Saturday)...

although slow to develop, sea fog has returned to the middle texas
coast as warm moist air flows over the cooler shelf waters. Light
rain drizzle has been ongoing early this morning over the gulf
waters and along the coastal bend victoria crossroads as a warm
front slowly tracks to the north. Expect light rain to continue
today, mainly across the eastern areas, due to increasing low
level moisture and a shortwave that will swing just north of the
region. Instability will remain fairly low but if we do manage to
see a few breaks in the clouds and instability increases, we could
see an isolated thunderstorm or two but the chances are pretty
low.

As the warm front moves north our the area today, onshore flow will
resume. Dewpoints behind the front in the mid to upper 60s and
ssts around 60 degrees will result in another round of dense sea
fog. In addition to the sea fog, expect patchy fog to develop
tonight across much of the CWA as low level moisture increases.

Dewpoint depressions will range from 1-3 degrees with condensation
pressure deficits bouncing around from 3-5mb. Fog will clear out
as a cold front slides through Saturday morning. The front will
near the brush country by sunrise and the coast by mid-morning.

Much drier air will filter in behind the system, which will lead
to some elevated fire weather concerns. Rh values across the brush
country will fall to less than 20% with a moderate NW flow for a
brief window Saturday afternoon. Will need to monitor for a
potential rfd.

High temps today will warm to near normal temps. Continued onshore
flow will allow for a rather warm night tonight with temps in the
low 60s across the victoria crossroads and the mid 60s across the
southern areas (10-15 degrees above normal). Despite the frontal
passage Saturday morning, temps will still rise into the mid 70s
to near 80.

Long term (Saturday night through Thursday)...

dry air will be in place at the start of the period Saturday night
behind the front. A reinforcing surge of high pressure will arrive
Sunday morning. The high pressure area will move to the east Sunday
night with onshore flow returning. Easterly flow will provide
increasing moisture on Monday with isolated showers possible along
the coast. A coastal trough will form off the lower texas coast
Monday night and move inland along the middle texas coast on
Tuesday. Scattered showers are expected from the coastal waters into
the coastal plains Monday night through Tuesday. The coastal trough
will weaken by Wednesday.

The upper level flow pattern will be quasi-zonal for the first part
of the next work week. Pattern changes by mid week with an upper
trough moving across the northern plains into the western great
lakes region Wednesday. This will send a cold front through the
plains states Wednesday. Front is expected to move into south texas
Thursday morning. Moisture will be available of the coastal plains
where precipitable water values are expected to be near 1.5 inches.

Scattered showers should occur with the cold front over the coastal
plains on Thursday.

Marine...

sea fog returned overnight along the middle texas coast. A marine
dense fog advisory is currently in effect until noon today. It
will likely need to be extended through the afternoon. Weak
northeast flow this morning will gradually veer to the east-
southeast throughout the day as a warm front moves north.

Scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorms will remain
possible over the waters today. Another round of dense sea fog is
expected this evening as warm moist air behind the warm front
moves over the cooler waters along the coast. Fog will clear out
tomorrow as a cold front pushes offshore by mid-morning Saturday.

A weak to moderate offshore flow Saturday night will increase to
moderate levels scec over the gulf on Sunday as high pressure
builds into the region. The flow will become onshore Sunday night
as the high pressure area moves to the east. Moisture will
increase by Monday for scattered showers to occur over the gulf
waters. A coastal trough will form off the lower texas coast
Monday night and move toward the middle texas coast Tuesday.

Scattered showers are possible over marine areas Monday night into
Tuesday. The coastal trough will weaken on Wednesday. Scattered
showers will be possible with the next cold front on Thursday with
a weak to moderate northeast flow expected in the wake of this
front.

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.
