Patches of low CIGS should lift by mid morning.

Shower thunderstorm activity will get going first near the coast
this morning before spreading inland this afternoon. Showers and
storms should be more diurnally driven today and therefore should
diminish soon after sunset this evening. 11

discussion...

slightly drier air has backdoored into northeast parts of the
region overnight with observed dewpoints currently in the mid to
upper 60s there. Closer to the coast, surface troffiness
continues and is providing a convergent zone for another round of
shra tstms to develop. These will probably persist into the early
& mid morning hours then, like the past few days, eventually
transition inland later in the morning & afternoon with daytime
heating. Convective temps a bit higher, probably ~85-86f, so it
could take a little longer for inland expansion. Can't rule out
some localized heavy downpours W pw's near 2". Also could see
some gusty winds in the stronger cells given the profiles of some
of the fcst soundings.

Guidance doesn't project the remnants of the disturbance now
situated across NW tx to make its way into SE tx until late
tonight & tue, but still worth keeping an eye on in case timing
and or details change. Wx on tues-thurs doesn't look a whole lot
different that the previous several days. Upper weakness should
linger across the area along with respectable amounts of moisture
to work with. We should start seeing a bit less overall precip
coverage going into the weekend as mid upper ridging builds back
into the area. 47
marine...

little change to overall marine forecast, with periods of showers
and thunderstorms possible across the coastal waters through the
upcoming week. Light east to southeast flow is expected until mid
week, when winds and therefore seas increase again in response to a
developing surface low over the lee of the rockies. Caution or
advisory flags may be required for this increase in winds seas as
early as Wednesday.

Continued east to southeast flow this week will promote tide levels
around 1-1.5 feet above normal and strong rip currents. However,
tide levels should remain below critical thresholds for coastal
flooding issues. 11

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.
