Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Wind speeds will continue to gradually weaken tonight with seas slowly subsiding by late in the night. A continued improvement in marine conditions will occur on Wednesday. A moderate northeast flow is expected Wednesday night, with weakening winds on Thursday. A coastal trough will develop late Wednesday night and Thursday, resulting in a chance for rain. Another weather disturbance will affect the area Thursday night, increasing the rain chances through Friday. Onshore flow will develop Thursday night, as the surface high moves east. A more southerly flow is expected on Friday through the weekend, as the coastal trough weakens and low pressure develops in the southern plains in response to a more potent upper level system. A frontal boundary will move offshore Sunday night, resulting in a weak to moderate offshore flow.

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.
