Update
Morning soundings and pw imagery supportive of a tight moisture
gradient along the upper tx coast. Have trimmed pops a little up
north, but kept chance to likely rain chances across coastal
counties, and perhaps a tier inland. That being said convective
temps will be met area-wide so still some chances of development
across sern tx- just higher near the gulf. All in all, current
forecast in pretty good shape.

Prev discussion issued 506 am cdt Wed jun 28 2017
marine... Mid level circulation helping to focus scattered to
numerous showers and thunderstorms over the coastal waters this
morning. As the coastal trough meanders around and in from the
coast expect the storms to continue develop and spread inland.

During the afternoon hours may see a lull over the coastal waters
before it fires up again tonight. Winds this morning 15 to 20
knots and will keep a scec going through 7 am then let it come
down only to come back up in the eastern waters late this
afternoon as gradient tightens back up. Elevated tide levels will
continue with the persistent coastal troughing. Beach hazard
statement extended through 7 pm but will likely need extending
through tonight with increase in winds. Rip current stronger today
and probably begin to see some overwash on 87 near high island
during the high tide this afternoon with these same conditions
tonight and Thursday. For what it is worth the arw core and tt-wrf
both focus showers and thunderstorms over the coastal waters this
afternoon tonight with the potential for stronger winds. Will
need to keep an eye on future runs for some consistency and if so
may warrant bumping up winds 5-15 knots. 45
aviation... Tough forecast today. Vlifr at uts this morning with
bkn001 and showers streaming into the the coastal areas. How far
the showers make it inland this morning is a tough call. Expecting
as the nocturnal elevated winds relax may see a break focusing
showers closer to the coast then jumping inland with a little
heating. GFS soundings look to be too dry in the ll at 12z so have
trended toward nmm NAM hrrr solutions which show an increase in
coverage around 15z for sgr lvj hou lbx areas then very slowly
expanding northward in the afternoon and clearing near the coast.

Overnight expect to see shra redevelop over the waters and spread
inland along the length of the coast around 06-08z. 45

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.
