639 pm cdt Sun may 26 2019

Aviation [00z TAF issuance]
Latest obs and satellite imagery confirmVFR conditions and these
conditions should last the next 6 hours. We should see some low
stratocumulus develop but likely see MVFR ceilings at kcxo
northward. Winds may decouple a bit more so fog may be an issue at
kcxo again with lifr conditions for a couple of hours. For the
most part any ceilings should stay away from the houston terminals
with kiah on the edge. There might be higher chances of lower
ceilings for more of the area Tuesday and Wednesday morning. In
general, the observations and trends from the past 24 hours will
likely repeat for the next 24 hours.

Near term
More of the same on tap for tonight and tomorrow with seasonably
warm temps along with humid and breezy conditions. Overall, quiet
weather for the holiday although will see a bit more clouds to start
the day and slightly less winds. Min temps will hold in the lower
70s north to near 80 right along the coast tonight. Tomorrow will
start mostly cloudy with more Sun breaking through by mid to late
afternoon. Expect temps to top out around 90 away from the coastal
counties where mid 80s are expected.

Marine
Winds will remain out of the south to southeast through at least mid
week. While we have seen some lessening to the wind speeds today as
compared to the past couple, expect south winds will increase
tonight and again tomorrow night into the 15-20 kt range and will
post a small craft cautionary headline tonight. Still expect a
small lessening in the gulf waves tonight Sunday with some
improvement in beach runup and rip currents. However, overall
threat levels warrant keeping the beach hazards statement through
Monday afternoon for the gulf facing beaches. Tide levels should
continue at 0.6 to 1.4 ft above normal.

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.
