Discussion
Clouds are clearing to the east and should mostly be out of the
cwa in the next 3 hours or so. Temperatures are dropping quickly
in their wake... Areas north of i-10 and west of i-45 are already
at or below the freezing mark. This is generally in line, or
lower, than what the coldest guidance indicates they'd be at this
time. With clear skies and decreasing winds, think it's prudent
to lower min temps a touch and expand the freeze warning to
include all of southeast texas except the beaches. Otherwise, just
minor tweaks to grids to match ongoing satellite & temp trends.

Also extended the low water advisory until at least noon wed.

Levels are currently running ~2 feet below mllw across portions of
the northern bays which would enhance the risk of vessel
groundings. 47

aviation... Clearing line is continuing to progress eastward this
evening and have tweaked skc times with an updated extrapolated
timing accord- ingly with the 00z tafs. Otherwise no restriction
issues expected the next day or so. 41
climate...

smashed records in houston today, as both iah (city of houston)
and hobby have recorded its earliest frozen precip on record, with
a trace of snow graupel. This easily clears the old record at
both sites of november 23.

Galveston's official observation only recorded rain, so its record
of earliest observed snowfall of december 4 appears safe.

As for tonight's freeze, this does come roughly two weeks ahead of
the "average" first freeze. But a closer look at the freeze dates
shows more of a bimodal clustering, with one peak in mid-november
and a larger one in early december. So, it may be fair to say that
our freeze event will likely fall in line with an "early normal".

Perhaps unusual, but not that unusual.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
