Discussion
No major changes needed tonight. Adjusted temperatures and
dewpoints a couple of degrees to account for current trends. Added
a mention of isolated showers across the coastal waters during the
morning hours due to a slight increase in available moisture and
weak coastal convergence. Otherwise, the forecast appears to be
in good shape.

vfr conditions will prevail for much of the forecast period. With
a dry airmass in place, expect little in the way of cloud cover
tonight. South to southeast winds will persist with gusts
subsiding between 2z - 4z. Low clouds and patchy fog will be
possible, mainly at kvct, leading to MVFR conditions during the
early morning hours.VFR conditions will again prevail by 14z
Saturday.

short term (tonight through Saturday night)...

satellite imagery shows a weak tutt low over southern coahuila
moving to the west. Upper level ridge will hold over the region
through the period as the tutt low continues to move to the west.

Goes image of precipitable water shows the moisture depth over
the western gulf of mexico still below average. Not expecting
isolated showers to form over the coastal waters late tonight into
Saturday morning. Afternoon heat index values will again approach
advisory levels over the southern coastal bend Saturday.

Otherwise, persistence temperature forecast was followed for the
period. Some morning clouds will give way to mostly clear skies
for Saturday afternoon and evening.

Long term (Sunday through Friday)...

the long term forecast period looks to feature a significant pattern
change over the area. As the high pressure ridge breaks down a bit
over the region, a tutt low currently near florida will gradually
make its way toward texas. This will increase moisture into the area
substantially. Pwats should be back up around 2 inches in the area
by Monday. Will expect a diurnal pattern with the convection along
with a sea breeze influence, thus weak convection mainly over the
marine areas at night, spreading inland during the daytime hours. By
the middle to latter half of next week, we could see a bigger push
of moisture depending on the path of tropical storm harvey. Models
showing the possibility of the storm emerging into the bay of
campeche after it moves across the yucatan, and that would still
give us better rain chances... However, confidence is not great yet
in the track and if the storm went much further south it could rob
us of a lot of moisture. Thus will keep just a 20-30 pop in the
forecast for now.

A slight cool down in temperatures is anticipated with the increased
moisture into the area, but only around normal levels... Maybe a
couple of degrees below normal some days. Heat index values between
105 and 109 will continue to be possible daily, mainly in the
southern coastal bend. A light to moderate wind field is expected at
this time.

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.
