Marine Weather and Tides
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Southeast flow will gradually strengthen tonight and Sunday as a storm system moves into the great plains. Areas of fog will be possible again overnight across area bays and the nearshore waters...although areal coverage may be more limited tonight. The southeast flow will gradually weaken and become more south and westerly by Sunday night as a cold front approaches the area. Expect mainly light to moderate offshore flow behind the front Monday, then weakening into Tuesday and Wednesday. A coastal trough could bring some showers to mainly the southern waters mid-week. Flow should then remain relatively weak from a northeast direction.

Note aviation discussion below corresponding to the 00z tafs.
A rapid transition to MVFR ifr ceilings is expected during the
00-003z Sunday period. MVFR ifr visibilities expected areawide,
yet due to sea fog near the coast. Non-convective llws anticipated
at ali during the 09-15z Sunday period (wind not quite strong
enough aloft over lrd, and surface wind significant at crp vct.)
MVFR ifr conditions expected during the morning hours followed by
a mixture ofVFR west of state road 16, and MVFR ifr ceilings
east. Generally light south surface wind overnight, followed by
increasing wind speeds over the coastal bend victoria crossroads
during the late morning early afternoon before speeds decrease
somewhat in advance of a weak surface trough.

short term (tonight through Sunday night)...
mid level S W ridging is moving overhead this afternoon and
aiding in significantly warmer temps today. This S W ridge will
shift east of the area tonight with a strong S W trough then
digging into the southern rockies tonight. Result will be
deepening sfc low pressure across the tx ok panhandles and
resultant strengthening wind fields across S tx.
A southerly LLJ is prog to strengthen tonight across the CWA (to
around 40 kts at 925mb) which should keep the pbl from decoupling
completely. Despite non-light sfc wind speeds tonight... Pooling
of moisture under a strengthening inversion around h85 should
still lead to reduced visibilities tonight along with the
development of a rather thick stratus deck (developing rather fast
across the coastal plains this evening and eventually across the
brush country overnight). Moisture advection southerly flow will
generally prevent temps from falling out of the 60s for overnight
lows (better chances of upper 50s along the rio grande where
moisture depth and wind speeds will be weaker).
Aforementioned S W trough digs into W tx and W ok on Sunday with a
sfc front shifting south and east across tx. Moisture from h85
and above will be kicked east out of S tx which will result in
little to no precip occurring across the area. Best chance of a
shower should be strongly confined to the vct area. Unseasonably
warm temperatures should occur once morning stratus mixes out as
warm h9 to h7 thermal layer mixes down... With several areas likely
flirting with 80 degrees in the afternoon. Breezy to windy|
conditions will also be common once skies start to clear with the
strongest winds confined to the coastal plains.
The surface front will progress towards and across the area Sunday
night with mainly clear skies prevailing along with cooler min
temps and weak to moderate NW winds.
Long term (Monday through Saturday)...
cold front should be at least into the marine zones by the beginning
of long term period if not all the way through the area. Only an
scec conditions is expected in marine areas with a moderate to
strong offshore flow. Upper level low associated with the front will
move from the midwest to new england Monday Tuesday as weak ridging
builds aloft. At the surface, ridging builds over texas Monday and
gradually moves eastward by Tuesday shifting surface flow from
northerly to easterly. Mid-week, a coastal trough will try to
develop south of the area, but should have difficulty lifting to far
northward with high pressure remaining strongly in control... And
even being reinforced. Have some low end pops for mainly southern
portion of area Wednesday and Thursday. By Friday, surface ridging
weakens over the region with a more onshore flow developing. This
will allow a more widespread slight chance pop. Next cold front
could come through by Saturday night. Only have slight chance pops
at this time, but if moisture advection were to be stronger, could
get a better moisture pool ahead of the front for higher pops.
With a relatively stable airmass through the period, will see high
temperatures not chance too much. Highs will generally be in the 60s
area wide with Wednesday being the coolest t around 60 as the
reinforcing ridge sinks into the area. Min temps will be generally
in the 40s through Thursday night then gradually increase with the
increase in moisture.

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.
