Seeing shower activity increasing across central and coastal sw
areas this afternoon. Have made some upward adjustments to pops
today based on the current radar trends and hires model guidance.

Appears that there is the possibility of isolated tstms across the
southern half of the area, but expect mainly showers. The cold front
is near a huntsville to katy to eagle lake line and moving S se.

College station has already seen its MAX temp for the day and temps
will fall into the mid 40s there soon. Temps along the upper coast will
rise to around 70 before the front arrives later this afternoon. 33

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.
