Discussion
At 300 am, low pressure was located east of the lower middle
tx coast with a warm front extending to the north and east of the
low. A weak trough of low pressure was noted across north central
la extending southwest into SE tx. Showers have developed along
this weak trough and will continue to do so through the morning.

No lightning yet, but it would not come as a surprise if lightning
develops as the storms move off to the north. There should be a
gap in the precipitation later this morning but a weak vort lobe
will approach the area from the west and this should trigger
additional showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Pw values do
increase to between 1.40 and 1.70 inches and with a warm front
near by, feel there should be a good chance of shra tsra by
afternoon. That said, most of the activity should remain benign as
fcst soundings show a dry layer between 850-500 mb and weak
capping in the 850-700 layer. SREF ensembles and short term
guidance still keeping sea fog near the coast today which seems
reasonable considering 70 degree dew point air is flowing over 58
degree shelf waters. Winds pick up later today tonight and that
could mitigate the fog threat but will keep a mention of fog in
the weather grids through Saturday morning.

Clouds will persist tonight and temperatures will remain nearly
steady or slowly warm overnight in the wake of todays warm front.

Fcst soundings support some drizzle overnight. The drizzle will
transition to showers as moisture profiles saturate. A cold front
will approach the NW parts of the region by 12z and showers and
thunderstorms will increase in coverage. Some of the storms could
be strong toward Saturday morning. SPC has placed the eastern
half of SE tx in marginal risk and the extreme NE part in slight
risk for severe weather. This again appears to be reasonable as
capping weakens and lapse rates steepen to about 7.0 c. CAPE is
so-so but mu CAPE reaches about 1770 j kg. Pw values reach 1.80
inches and k index values reach 40 over the far eastern parts of
the cwa. The most likely severe weather hazards expected will be
hail (wet bulb zero around 10000 feet) and strong gusty winds.

Wpc has the area outlooked in marginal risk for heavy rain but the
system is fast moving so not expecting much in the way of heavy
rain. Skies will clear by early afternoon and the bulk of Saturday
looks pretty nice once the storms exit.

Sunday and Monday look nice with high pressure over the central
plains ridging into texas. Moisture returns Monday night and
showers should redevelop over the area. Fcst soundings show a
saturated layer from the surface up to 700 mb. Conditions look to
remain unsettled until another cold front crosses the region
on Thursday. 43

Marine
A dense fog advisory remains in effect through 9 am across both
galveston and matagorda bays, as well as the nearshore waters this
morning. Observations have been varying between 0.5 to 1 nm, and
webcams along the coast confirm areas of fog with pockets of dense
fog. There is the potential for this advisory to be extended, as
favorable conditions for sea fog look to continue until the passage
of the next cold front Saturday afternoon.

Northwesterly winds should shift out of the southeast today as a
warm front progresses inland late this morning and washes out over
the area. Moisture values will rise and better coverage of showers
can be anticipated today through tomorrow morning. Moderate onshore
flow is forecast for Saturday morning ahead of the next cold front
which should push through the region Saturday afternoon. Showers and
thunderstorms are expected along and out ahead of this frontal
passage. Moderate northwesterly winds will prevail behind the
boundary beginning late Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning.

Winds will turn easterly late Sunday and remain out of the east
through Tuesday morning before turning back onshore. As a result,
tide levels are forecast to rise to around 2.5 ft above mllw. The
chance for showers returns to the forecast Tuesday through the
remainder of next week. Better coverage of showers will be possible
Wednesday into Thursday, with the approach of our next shortwave
disturbance. Additionally, another cold front looks to move through
the region next Thursday.

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.
