Discussion
A weak cool front has pushed almost to the coast this morning as
the radar indicates showers and thunderstorms over the coastal
waters... Storms are moving to the northwest. Temperatures across
central louisiana and the lakes region of southeast texas are in
the lower 70s while temperatures along the coast are in the middle
70s with a light north wind.

Overnight harvey has strengthen and is now a tropical storm.

Latest stlt images are showing convection associated with the
storms expanding over the southwest gulf down in the bay of
campeche. Harvey is moving to the northwest slowly and looks to
make landfall along the middle texas coast by Saturday morning.

Sea surface temperatures are running in the mid 80s.

Last night sounding has precip water around 2.03 inches but this
will drop a bit as drier air filters in. But moisture will lift
out and above the weak cool front and scattered showers and
thunderstorms are expected across the area today. Temperatures
will also be a bit cooler as clouds and rains hinder temperatures
from climbing into the lower 90s.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to remain a threat through
tonight as moisture lifts above the boundary.

On Friday rain chances will increase as harvey approaches the
middle texas coast. Harvey is expected to become a hurricane prior
to landfall and is projected to stall just inland from the texas
coast as an upper level ridge to the northwest blocks harvey
movements inland along with getting hung up with the stalled
frontal boundary. This is expected to produce very heavy rains
along the middle texas coast through the weekend. Some movement of
the remains of harvey will begin on Monday into Tuesday as an
upper level trof drops down into the central us allowing for the
storm to move to the northeast and into southern louisiana on
Wednesday. As this will be a slow event to unfold rainfall totals
of five to eight inches are expected with higher amounts around
the region. Winds and seas will pick up in the coastal waters as
harvey moves up the texas coast and into the louisiana coastal
waters.

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.
