Vfr continues. The highest atmospheric moisture remains shunted
off to the west and south. Thus... Daytime showers should focus
along the coast and points west. Likely just isolated showers so
have left out vcsh in this package. Mainly mid to high level blow
off cirrus. Breezes will typically come from the east early in the
day... Veering more southeast through the afternoon. 31

radar is looking rather quiet this morning but daytime heating
will once again spur development later this afternoon. Satellite
derive pw fields show deeper moisture over the SW zones with
drier air to the ne. Previous forecast tapered pops higher to the
sw and lower NE and this appears to be on track. 12z soundings
support high temperatures between 88 and 92 degrees and MAX t
grids support this range, leaning toward the warmer side. Made
some minor tweaks but otherwise the previous forecast looks on
track. 43

taf sites areVFR early this morning with some high clouds streaming
across the area from the west. Could see a little bit of fog development
in the next hour or two. If high clouds don't interfere, some shra
development will be possible with daytime heating with the greatest
coverage this morning expected mainly out west and this afternoon along
any sea breeze boundary that moves inland. Quiet tonight with patchy
fog possible again inland areas. 42

discussion...

largely seasonable weather for much of the week is expected, though
some indirect impacts to our area may be seen thanks to a
potentially prolonged precipitation event far to our west over
portions of south texas and northern mexico. More significant change
looks to come at the end of the week as a front backdoors through
the area, followed by an influx of drier and slightly cooler air.

However, fans of fall weather shouldn't get too excited, as the
impact of high temperatures will be pretty modest, and more summer-
like conditions look to return early next week.

Marine...

light to moderate east to southeast winds along with seas in a 1 to
3 foot range will continue through Wednesday night. Winds will
become more northeasterly beginning on Thursday with the approach
and eventual passage of a cold front. This moderate northeast flow
(some caution flags might be needed) along with building seas can be
expected at the end of the week and on into the upcoming weekend.

With an anticipated prolonged northeasterly fetch on already
slightly above normal tides, some minor coastal run up issues might
develop as early as the end of the week and possibly extending into
the start of next week. 42

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.
