Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. A weak to moderate onshore flow will prevail through Friday. Isolated showers will be possible Friday and Saturday mornings. Stronger southeast flow is expected to occur at times over the weekend and into early next week. Small craft advisories may be required at times this weekend...primarily due to the strong winds. However...seas will gradually build in response to the stronger winds. Slightly weaker winds are expected for the early to middle part of next week.

Vfr prevails across the region. Gusty southeast winds will
decouple and relax this evening. Light, patchy fog can be
anticipated to briefly bring MVFR category vsbys to ali and vct
once again during the early morning hours. Otherwise,VFR will
prevail at all terminals through the period. Light winds overnight
will increase again to a moderate, gusty flow during the late
morning into the early afternoon Friday.

short term (tonight through Friday night)...

very little convection across south texas this afternoon. Mainly
due to warmer temperatures at h85 around 20-23c which tends to
inhibit convection. However, moisture remains sufficient and with
a weaker cap to the northeast (generally toward victoria and to
the east) isolated showers have been able to develop. Will expect
this to be the most we see although a rogue shower along the sea
breeze can not be ruled out. For the most part, most locations
should remain dry under partly cloudy skies. Heat index values
continue to run above 100 degrees, with values across the coastal
plains averaging around 105 degrees. A few isolated locations with
values near or slightly above 110 degrees will be possible but
not expected to last too long.

Shear axis across SE and central texas is expected to lift
farther north tonight, but then return south and west through
Friday. Moisture and instability will still be sufficient to lead
to isolated showers and thunderstorms to be thermally driven,
first over the waters in the morning, then move inland through the
day. With h85 temperatures remaining warm, the focus should
remain across the eastern areas toward the victoria crossroads and
northern coastal bend. Again, most locations should remain dry
with the extra inhibition.

Temperatures will remain hot, with temperatures ranging from the
low 90s along the immediate coast, to mid to upper 90s across the
coastal plains. Farther west into the brush country and rio grande
plains, temperatures near 100 to 103 will be possible. Humidity
will make temperatures feel like 105 to 109 degrees during the
afternoon.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)...

hot and humid conditions will persist across south texas this
weekend. Highs will easily top 100 degrees over the western brush
country and rio grande plains with mid 90s over the victoria
crossroads. Heat index values will be an issue this weekend and heat
advisories may be necessary for parts of the area Saturday and
Sunday. Expect mostly dry conditions this weekend as inverted upper
trough remains to our northeast. A few showers may be possible
though on Saturday over northeast sections. Chances for showers and
storms may slightly increase by the middle part of next as moisture
improves across the area. The moisture increase along with the sea
breeze and daytime heating may be enough for at least isolated
convection. Pops were capped at 20 percent now Tuesday through
Thursday. Very warm to hot conditions will continue through the
middle part of next 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.
