Synopsis..High pressure will shift toward the eastern gulf today as a low pressure system moves into the plains. This low will push a weak front toward the coast Wednesday night and Thursday. The front should stall as it enters the coastal waters. Another low pressure system should then move into the plains on Friday and impact the coastal waters late in the upcoming weekend.

Aviation
Vfr conditions through around 10z, but some increase in cloud
cover in the mid-levels possible before 10z. After 10z, increased
cloud cover will develop between 1500 and 2500 feet resulting in
prevailing MVFR conditions at some of the terminals. Kbtr, khum,
kmcb, and khdc will be most impacted by these developing ceilings.

There may also be some light fog between 3 and 5 miles developing
for a couple of hours around 12z at kmcb, but any fog should be
fairly shallow and very patchy. Winds will increase from the south
after 12z tomorrow with sustained winds of 15 to 20 knots and
gusts to 25 knots possible. 32

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
