Discussion
Continued dry weather but with warmer temperatures are expected to-
day as onshore winds resume and mostly sunny skies prevail. A deep
ridging pattern in place over SE tx today will be evolving tonight
and Sat as the next upper low trof deepens and moves NE across the
south central plains. This more northerly track along with limited
return of moisture (pws 1.1-1.3") and a persistent cap should keep
pops low for much of the CWA this weekend even with the passage of
a stray disturbance aloft (sat) or daytime heating seabreeze (sun).

Will keep the low pops in place for Mon mon night with the passage
of the next cold front. Progs of a strengthening cap for Mon could
mean even lower rain chances should this trend continue. A cooler
drier air mass will be moving into the area tues behind this front.

Thereafter, a slightly more progressive pattern is expected as the
next upper trof moves in from the west. Onshore winds to return by
late weds thurs out ahead of the next cold front (currently on tap
for late Fri early sat). Confidence for elevated pops for this sys-
tem remain low given the indications of the strong capping persist-
ing. However, given the time of year, some or all of this could be
moot as we move forward. 41

Marine
High pressure has drifted into the coastal waters this morning with
light southwesterly component. Landbreeze could take shape near
sunrise then winds come back around to the south and southeast near
noon. Winds should strengthen this afternoon through Saturday as
high drifts away and pressures fall in west texas as an upper level
s W trough lifts out. Seas slowly building from 1 foot this morning
to 2 to 4 feet Saturday and then with persistent southeasterly flow
Sunday creeping up further. A cold front moves through setx Monday
and into the coastal waters Monday evening. Winds picking up and
peaking Tuesday morning and will probably need an SCA at least
briefly. Isolated streamer shower may be possible Saturday but
chances look slim given the poor moisture return. Cap strengthens
Sunday and limits rain chances until near the frontal passage. Brief
window for precip with the fropa.

Aviation
Fog on the increase over the southwestern counties and could briefly
impact lbx sgr this morning. OtherwiseVFR with high clouds and
light variable winds becoming south and southeast. If mixing isn't
too strong may see fog again Saturday morning at the more
problematic sites lbx cxo.

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.
