Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Winds have decreased to moderate levels, however large seas continue across the coastal waters. The large seas will maintain the advisory conditions through tonight. Winds are expected to restrengthen Wednesday to strong levels with advisory conditions likely to continue through Wednesday for both winds and seas. Small craft advisory conditions will likely continue through Thursday as low pressure persists out west with strong southeasterly onshore flow. Some improvement in winds can be expected this weekend. However, southeasterly swells will continue to be elevated. Little to no precipitation is expected through early next week.

Short term (tonight through Wednesday night)
Dryline boundary currently converging with the sea breeze boundary
this afternoon. However, due to a strong cap, convection is being
inhibited from developing. The cap is progged to remain strong
through Wednesday and Wednesday night. Moisture will also be
limited, thus am not anticipating any precip through the short term.

Kept silent 10 pops across the northeastern CWA tonight and the
northern tier of the CWA Thu night. This is where the cap is progged
to be weakest and could see a rogue shower. Also, some of the models
were showing light QPF and pops approaching 20 percent in these
areas. But given the cap, did not want to mention precip at this
time.

Temps across the western CWA will be very warm to hot with highs
around 100 along the rio grande plains. Humidity will also be
elevated and the combination may lead to heat indices of 105-109
across the western CWA Wed afternoon.

Breezy to windy conditions are expected once again wed, but not
quite as windy as today. Low pressure is progged to develop deepen
along the rockies and across W tx leading to a tightening pressure
gradient.

Will continue the coastal flood advisory through tonight as tides
continue around 1 foot inundation (2 feet above msl) during times of
high tide. Above normal trends have been decreasing this afternoon,
therefore tide levels are not expected to be quite as high as
today's values.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
Dry and hot expected in the extended through memorial day weekend
and into next week. A ridge of high pressure will build westward
across south texas, with drying aloft. Expect to see afternoon highs
climbing into the upper 90s to around 100 degrees for the rio grande
plains through the period, with 80s to lower 90s elsewhere. Weak
waves in the southwest flow aloft out to the west could help
generate a few light showers, but confidence is very low based on
the strength of the ridge and dry air aloft. Will keep a dry
forecast through the extended. May have to watch heat index values
as low level southeasterly flow will continue to keep surface
dewpoints high through the period.

Marine
Winds have decreased this afternoon, but are expected to remain at
moderate levels through tonight. Large seas are expected to continue
overnight, thus maintaining the advisory conditions. Winds are
expected to restrengthen Wed and Wed night and the SCA may need to
be extended for both wind and seas through Wed night.

Adverse marine conditions expected to continue through the
weekend and into early next week. Strong southeasterly southerly
flow is expected to continue through the upcoming weekend as a
strong high pressure system sets up across the southeastern us.

Pressure gradient does somewhat relax by Saturday and Sunday, but
southeasterly swells will continue to remain elevated. This will
likely keep SCA conditions despite the slightly low winds. Winds
will begin to increase once again by Tuesday as surface
cyclogenesis develops east of the mexican plateau.

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.
