Marine Weather and Tides
Texas City, TX

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Sub-tropical storm alberto will gradually strengthen as it moves from near the yucatan into the east-central gulf.

Update
Anvil debris from a determined supercell thunderstorm that has
been trudging towards south central texas from north texas all
evening is beginning to translate across the brazos valley and
piney woods. This increased cloud cover may slow radiational
cooling across the northern counties tonight, but expect another
round of patchy fog to develop early Saturday morning across most
of southeast texas outside of the houston metro. Regional radar
mosaic also shows another thunderstorm complex moving out of
northwestern texas towards the i-20 corridor. While high
resolution guidance shows this complex weakening (and this seems
like a reasonable trend with outflow already beginning to outrun
part of the complex), it does also bring a few showers or possibly
a thunderstorm into the northern counties by early Saturday
morning. Main updates to the forecast tonight include adding a
mention of patchy fog, adding low rain chances to the northern
counties to account for ongoing convection over north texas, and
accounting for latest observations. Expect lows in the 70s
tonight.

we could see perhaps a few more showers thunderstorms before the
afternoon is through. To the north, colliding outflow boundaries
(from storms over north central tx and SE tx respectively) looks
to be meeting near uts cxo at present. Further south... Lingering
tsra near the coast (lbx) along the seabreeze have persisted. At
this time, still expecting all of this activity to decrease soon
after sunset (with the loss of daytime heating). For tonight and
early Sat morning, cannot really disagree with the idea of brief
lower CIGS vis issues (as we have been seeing on these last sev-
eral days). Otherwise, we should be seeing much quieter forecast
trends the rest of the weekend as the upper ridge becomes firmly
established over the region. 41

showers and thunderstorms early this afternoon remain
concentrated mainly along and south of a line from liberty to
houston to matagorda. Expect this trend to continue for the rest
of the afternoon through early this evening with activity
spreading a little further inland. Locally heavy rainfall will be
possible with the slower moving storms. We should lose all
convection during the early evening hours with the loss of
heating. There is also a weakening line of storms east of the
dallas area sagging quickly southward toward our northern counties
that we will have to keep an eye on to see if it holds together.

Still looking at decreasing rain chances and increasing high
temperatures over the holiday weekend and on into much of next
week as moisture levels come down (decreasing precipitable water
values) and mid upper level ridging strengthens across the state.

High temperatures look to eventually reach the mid to upper 90s
(heat index values in the lower 100s) with low temperatures in the
70s inland and around 80 at the coast, and it still appears that
temperatures midweek next week could approach record values (a
list of record high maximum daily temperatures and record high
minimum daily temperatures is included in the climate section
below). We will continue to strongly emphasize the importance of
heat safety.

The latest forecast from the national hurricane center brings subtropical
storm alberto northward out of the northwestern caribbean sea and into
the southeastern gulf of mexico tonight through early Saturday and
then eventually shifts the strengthening system to the north northwest
and northwest toward the middle gulf of mexico coast near the far eastern
louisiana-mississippi-alabama-far western florida panhandle area in a
Monday Tuesday timeframe. Given this current track, we are not anticipating
any significant effects from alberto across southeast texas. Anyone with
holiday weekend plans across the central eastern gulf of mexico area are
urged to closely monitor the progress of alberto and consult the national
hurricane center as well as local national weather service offices. 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.
