Marine Weather and Tides
Country Acres, TX

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Short term (tonight through Friday night)
Ongoing isolated to scattered convection across the eastern third
of the CWA should quickly dissipate late this afternoon with the
onset of nocturnal cooling. Otherwise, this evening should be dry
across the area with only isolated nocturnal showers developing
offshore by late in the night. Mid level ridging is prog to begin
to strengthen Friday with higher h85 moisture values shifting
farther east. This should result in a drier day than the past two
days with plenty of sunshine occurring. Weak wind fields and high
near sfc moisture values tonight... With drier air aloft... Should
result in areas of fog late tonight across the eastern brush
country, inland coastal plains... Extending NE towards the victoria
area. While much of the fog should be shallow in nature... Some
patches of denser fog will be possible. Min temps tonight and
Friday night will generally be around 70 or the lower 70s... With
highs in the 90s across most inland areas.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
The upper level ridge will be wedged between the upper lows over the
great basin and the north central gulf of mexico through memorial
day. A tropical system may develop and move toward the north central
gulf coast Sunday into Monday. Depending upon the strength of this
potential system, the middle texas coast may see an increase in long
period swells Sunday through memorial day. This would lead to an
increased risk of rip currents for gulf facing beaches this holiday
weekend. Some of the forecast models depict swell periods increasing
to 10-12 seconds over the western gulf toward the middle texas
coast. The upper low over the great basin kicks out to the northeast
across the northern plains on Tuesday with the possible tropical
system moving inland over louisiana mississippi. Air mass will be
unusually dry across the region through the period with precipitable
water values below 1.5 inches. Upper level ridge over northern
mexico will build into the region Tuesday through Thursday.

Afternoon heat index values will likely be near or above 105 degrees
during this period over the brush country and inland coastal bend.

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.
