area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service corpus christi tx
918 pm cdt Sun mar 26 2017

Discussion Wind speeds have weakened since sunset, but still
remain gusty as a 35 to 40 knot southerly LLJ at 925mb remains
overhead. Patches of stratus are trying to develop, but the llj
will likely need to weaken a bit /which should happen after
midnight and result in less mixing/ before greater areal coverage
of stratus can develop.

Overall, the inherited forecast is generally on track. Continued
warm/muggy conditions overnight.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
