Discussion
See aviation discussion below for the 00z tafs.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail through the TAF period. High clouds
are expected to move across the region later tonight and Sunday.

Winds will be light and generally variable with the direction
becoming more east by Sunday afternoon.

Previous discussion issued 206 pm cst Sat dec 15 2018
short term (tonight through Sunday night)...

no need to be verbose for what basically amounts to a temperature
forecast. A dry airmass will remain over south texas through most of
Sunday, with an increase in mid and high cloud cover from
approaching trough now west of baja. With any semblance of onshore
flow not expected until later Sunday night (and that is weak) the
lower and mid levels will be dry and any precipitation-forcing from
the upper trough (some shown by the synoptic models mainly NW cwfa)
should not reach the ground at least through Sunday night. The mid
and high clouds will help to keep temperatures from falling too much
overnight Sunday night, with the likelihood of near steady
temperatures near the coast with the resumption of weak onshore
flow. For temperatures tonight, used a blend of conmos and bconmos
(with adjustments), as the temperatures should fall nicely even
eastern areas with the weak westerly flow. For the high and low for
Sunday and Sunday night, used a blend of short-term mainly bias-
corrected guidance (generally more toward the warmer side than raw
guidance but not as warm as MOS was showing for highs on Sunday).

Fire weather...

one more day of very low rh values over south texas, but with light
winds there fire danger will stay below critical levels.

Marine...

winds and seas will continue to diminish with a weak offshore flow
expected for Sunday and most if not all of Sunday night. Enough
said. Building onshore flow and a weak coastal trough may be
enough for scattered showers over marine areas Tuesday through
Wednesday, ending with a frontal passage Wednesday night. Moderate
offshore flow will develop behind this front, with small craft
advisory conditions possible Thursday, especially further
offshore.

Long term (Monday through Friday)...

generally quiet weather expected through the extended. Return flow
resumes on Monday as a surface high drifts off to the east and
another disturbance pushes out onto the plains in a progressive flow
pattern. Expect rain chances Tuesday and Wednesday over the east,
peaking Tuesday night. With limited moisture return coverage will be
spotty at best. The system drags a weak front through the region
late Wednesday or Wednesday night, bringing rain chances to an end.

The airmass behind it is pacific, not arctic, so no significant
temperature swings are expected with the front, although winds may
pick up a bit behind the front. Northwest flow aloft and surface
high pressure should keep us dry through the rest of the week.

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.
