variable across south texas. High pressure area will push through

area moves to the east.

Prev discussion issued 241 pm cdt Thu apr 25 2019
short term (tonight through Friday night)...

high pressure will continue to build into the region through the
remainder of the week, providing dry northerly flow and mainly
clear skies. Temperatures will remain some above normal, with low
temperatures ranging from upper 50s brush country to mid 60s along
the coast. Highs Friday will range from mid 80s victoria
crossroads and coastal areas to low 90s in the rio grande valley.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)...

a large ridge of high pressure builds across the region Saturday
into early next week. A shortwave will move over the top of the
ridge during the day Saturday, but with very little moisture will
not have much affect on our weather. In fact, expect very few clouds
around Saturday with a light onshore flow and warm temperatures, a
few degrees above normal. A few more clouds will be possible on
Sunday. By Monday moisture will increase more into the region and
with an upper level trough progressing through the western us and
short waves moving through south texas, will begin to see rain
chances by Monday night. Will keep mainly slight chance pops through
from Monday through the end of the period with significant
discrepancies between forecast models. Will probably need higher
chances at times, but the details are unclear at this point.

Temperatures remain slightly above normal through the period.

Marine...

with a surface ridge nearly overhead, wind will be light over the
waters tonight. Northeast wind at 10 knots or less can be expected
into Friday afternoon, before onshore flow at similar speeds
develops by evening and persists through the night. Light onshore
winds are expected this weekend. The onshore flow will become
moderate to strong Monday through Wednesday with at least scec
conditions possible over the bays and nearshore waters each
afternoon.

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.
