Short term (today through Tuesday)
Ongoing convection this morning associated with an upper level
shortwave aided by a very moist and unstable environment. Gusty
winds will be possible with the heavier storms this morning as
they progress east and southeast. Think most of the convection
will remain through the northern coastal bend. Expect strongest
storms to move out of the area by 6-7am, however will keep pops up
for victoria crossroads region as showers and a few storms will
linger behind the main convection.

Once morning activity subsides, expect much quieter conditions.

Some afternoon sea breeze convection will be possible, but will be
dependent on recovery from morning round. Will just stick with a
20 pop for now as cloud cover will be substantial and with upper
level trough to the east, a more subsident pattern will set up. By
tonight and Tuesday will expect only a few streamer
showers storms.

Expect seasonal temperatures again today and tomorrow. Cloud cover
could hold the victoria crossroads just a bit cooler than the past
couple of days though. Have sps for heat index values 105-109 for
all but victoria crossroads today.

Long term (Tuesday night through Sunday) The global models are in
good agreement with a flat 500mb subtropical ridge across northeast
mexico and the western gulf of mexico Tuesday and this pattern does
not change until Friday as a 500mb trough develops across the
western united states and the 500mb ridge moves eastward and
amplifies across the eastern united states. At the surface... Surface
high pressure across the eastern gulf Tuesday will provide a
southeast to south flow across the CWA tues night into Wednesday.

Winds will increase across the coastal sections Wed night into
Thursday as the pressure gradient increases across the middle texas
coast. Breezy conditions will expand westward across the rio grande
plains Friday as the upper level trough develops across the western
united states. Low to mid level moisture appears limited tues night
through the rest of the week. The ECMWF is expecting moisture to
increase across the eastern half of the state Saturday into Sunday
while the GFS increases moisture across the same area Sunday ahead
of the upper level trough. Will mention a slight chance to chance of
showers and thunderstorms across the eastern portions of the
cwa... Mainly across the victoria crossroads... Through the weekend.

Above normal temperatures will prevail across south texas tues night
through the rest of the week with slightly warmer temperatures
Thursday especially across the rio grande plains. Temperatures will
decrease slightly through the weekend with the increase in moisture
and clouds. Heat advisories will likely be needed Wednesday through
Sunday as heat index values of 110 to 115 develop across portions of
the CWA especially Thursday through Saturday.

Marine an area of thunderstorms will impact the area this
morning with strong winds possible. This convection will move
through the offshore regions by mid to late morning. Isolated
showers and storms will continue to be possible the rest of today
with a few streamer showers storms possible on Tuesday. Mainly
moderate onshore flow is expected, however variable and gusty
winds will be possible around thunderstorms. Light to moderate
south to southeast winds will prevail across the coastal waters
tues night into Wednesday with surface high pressure across the
eastern gulf of mexico and surface low pressure across northwest
texas. The pressure gradient will increase across the coastal bend
wed night and winds will increase across the coastal waters as a
result. Small craft advisories will likely be needed for the
offshore waters Wed night as winds increase to 20 to 25 knots from
the south to southeast. Scec to near SCA conditions will prevail
across the bay waters and offshore Thursday through Friday with
moderate to strong southerly winds.

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.
