MVFR CIGS continuing to move into the area at present as low-level
moisture from the gulf deepens across SE tx. Onshore winds at just
above the surface are also continuing to strengthen and this trend
will be continuing through the rest of the morning. As such, still
not too convinced we will see widespread nor long-lasting ifr lifr
cigs overnight. This strong WAA could also generate an isolated ra
or two along the coast and additional light precipitation is poss-
ible as the next disturbance moves in from the W sw. Strong cap in
place over the region should help to keep things quiet until later
in the afternoon... Especially for areas along and north of i-10 as
heating helps to overcome the cap. Did add vcts in for most of the
sites inland for the afternoon early evening. The front is expect-
ed to clear the coast around sunrise Sunday morning. 41

Prev discussion issued 1003 pm cdt Fri apr 20 2018
lowered temperatures a few degrees for the update. Think they'll
eventually level off, but t TD spread is far enough apart to allow
for them to fall a bit. Otherwise, current forecast is in pretty
good shape. Other than some iso shra and possibly -dz in the
morning, capping should keep TSTM chances in check until later in
the day Saturday and Saturday night. 47

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.
