Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Offshore flow will continue at strong levels this morning and gradually weaken to more moderate levels by afternoon. Seas will gradually subside as well. Light onshore flow will return by Monday afternoon. Onshore flow will increase to moderate to strong levels Tuesday and Wednesday due to surface high pressure over the gulf of mexico and an area of low pressure over the southern plains. Generally light to moderate east flow is expected to develop late Wednesday and continue Thursday as a weak frontal boundary stalls over the region.

Aviation A few mid level clouds will linger for another hour or
two over the southern coastal bend. Otherwise, clear skies andVFR
conditions will prevail through the period. North winds will be
gusty over the coastal plains until mid afternoon. Light winds are
expected tonight as high pressure settles into the region.
Previous discussion /issued 852 am cdt Sun apr 23 2017/
discussion... Cloud cover has been a little slower to move out of
the region. Modified sky grids to address this. Isentropic lift in
the 300-310k layer provided isolated pockets of light rain that
have moved over the gulf waters. Isentropic downglide will push
clearing line slowly southward through the southern areas by noon.
Marine... Wind speeds have diminished over the bays and will allow
the SCA to expire at 14z. SCA will continue for the gulf waters
into the afternoon.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
