Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Weak to moderate north to northeast flow will persist tonight through Thursday as a coastal trough develops. The combination of the trough and an upper level disturbance will contribute to patchy light rain Thursday. Additional areas of light rain and a more northerly flow will result on Friday. As the trough exists the area to the northeast Friday night, a more southerly flow develops. Onshore flow will increase on Saturday and Saturday night, as low pressure deepens in the southern plains in response to an upper level storm system. The upper system will stay north of the waters, but will allow a frontal boundary to move into the waters by Sunday night. This will result in a chance for showers and isolated Thunderstorms ahead of the boundary, with offshore flow developing in the wake of the front. A moderate offshore flow on Monday will diminish Monday night, as high pressure builds into texas.

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.
