Short term (today through Wednesday)
Abundant deep moisture with pwats around 2 inches will remain in
place across the region today. The moisture combined with a baggy
trough aloft, moderate cape, and fairly strong low level convergence
along the coast where a coastal trough resides, will produce sct to
num shra tsra's. The best chances will be across the eastern half of
the cwa. The convection is expected to wane this evening before
redeveloping across the waters and along the coast once again late
tonight early Wed morning. Am expecting rain chcs to be a tad lower
on Wed as the upper trough shifts S and E of the region with some
drying in the mid upper levels and pwats decreasing to between 1.5
and 1.7 inches. MAX temps Wed will also be a tad higher as a result.

Winds will generally be east to northeast this morning becoming more
easterly this afternoon, while over the coastal waters, winds will
remain generally southeast. The weak to moderate onshore flow over
the coastal waters is expected to become more moderate tonight.

Tide levels continue to run slightly elevated, but are expected to
remain below 2 ft msl through the next high tide. Levels are
expected to be around 1.5-1.7 ft abv msl at the time of the next
high tide.

Long term (Wednesday night through Monday)
The mid level shear axis will remain along the coast from Wednesday
night through Friday with the deeper moisture being over the gulf
waters. Will continue with high chance pops over the gulf waters to
the mid-coast region Wednesday night into Thursday with pops tapered
to slight chance along highway 281. The shear axis weakens by Friday
and moisture slowly decreases but will continue low end chance pops
over the gulf waters to the mid-coast region for Thursday night into
Friday. Low level flow will increase by Thursday as low pressure
forms over west texas. Scec to low end SCA conditions are expected
Thursday night through Saturday. Drier air moves into the area by
Saturday as the mid level ridge axis over the gulf of mexico builds
to the west into the area. Heat index values will be back to the
range of 105-109 degrees for Friday through the weekend into Monday.

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.
