Marine Weather and Tides
Morgan's Point, 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.

Discussion
Showers and thunderstorms will continue across the region through
the afternoon. Strong winds and pea sized hail are possible with
the strongest storms this afternoon. The upper level disturbance
that has helped fuel the rounds of stronger thunderstorms the past
several days will diminish and move farther east. In its wake, an
upper level ridge will push into the area from the southwest as
surface high pressure builds in from the northeast. These will
both cause our forecast to become progressively warmer and drier
leading into memorial day weekend. At this time, it appears that
midweek next week could approach record high temperatures. A
summary of record high maximum daily temperatures and record high
minimum daily temperatures is included in the climate section
below.

The low pressure system currently over the eastern yucatan
peninsula has been given a 70% chance of development into a
tropical depression over the next two days. With tropical
development likely, it is always wise to make sure you have your
severe weather preparedness kit ready. Although this system is
forecast to progress into the eastern gulf with minimal, if any,
impacts to SE texas, it is important to be prepared. 22

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the end
of the week. Light to moderate southerly winds along with low seas
of 3 feet or less will continue through the end of the week. Light
southwest to west winds and decreasing rain coverage are anticipated
over the weekend and on into the first half of next week.

Boaters with interests in the central and eastern gulf of mexico
should monitor the forecasts for possible storm formation at the
end of the week and on into the weekend. At this time, no impacts
are expected other than maybe higher seas if a subtropical or
tropical system forms. 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.
