area forecast discussion
national weather service houston galveston tx
335 pm cdt Fri sep 22 2017

Discussion
Best shower thunderstorm coverage so far today has been in around
the matagorda bay and jackson county areas where the highest moisture
levels have been found. Isolated to widely scattered storm development
is still possible across the rest of our area over the next several
hours (peak heating) with all activity expected to dissipate early
this evening. The area still looks to be on the warm and dry side
over the weekend with only spotty mainly daytime shower thunderstorm
development anticipated. Models are generally trending next week's
increasing rain chances associated with an approaching storm system
and accompanying cold front to be setting up across the western and
central parts of the state as weak mid upper level ridging centered
out in the gulf tries to be a player for our area. Once the ridging
breaks and we do get the front on through, look for some drier and
slightly cooler weather to eventually work its way into our area. 42

Marine
Light to moderate onshore winds, seas around 2 to 3 feet,
and periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected across
the waters this weekend and into next week. A cold front may
push off the coast late in the week next week. Tides continue
to run about 0.5 to 1 foot above normal but should remain
below any critical thresholds for impacts.

aviation...

a few isolated showers and storms will be possible across the
western portion of the area today, but coverage is expected to be
too low to include in the tafs. Expect some fog low stratus once
again overnight tonight and into tomorrow morning, with the
greatest potential north of kiah. Conditions will probably be
slightly better than what occurred this morning due to slightly
less available moisture. Any fog low CIGS that do develop will
improve around mid-morning, withVFR conditions expected for the
rest of the period. Isolated showers and storms will be possible
once again tomorrow afternoon, but coverage is expected to be too
sparse to include in this TAF package.

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.
