no major changes to the forecast needed this evening. Just made
some minor adjustments to forecast low temperatures based on
observational trends. Bottom line, not expecting much change from
current readings. A little bit of a drop away from the coast, with
some slight warming near the coast SE tx SW la amid light onshore
flow.

another dry quiet day as temperatures climbed into the upper 50s
to lower 60s under clear skies and light winds. Another cool night
on tap with temps ranging from the 30s across central louisiana
and the lakes region of southeast texas.

Clouds will gradually spread into the northwest gulf region
tonight into tomorrow. Showers and thunderstorms will begin to
affect the region late Thursday morning with storms increasing in
area and strength through the day as the region moves into the
warm sector. A low with a trailing cold front will move down the
front side of the rockies and into north texas during the day. At
that time an upper level trof with a vort MAX will be pushing into
central texas and into eastern texas by the evening hours. The vort
max energy in the trof will support storm development and
enhancement. As a result there will be a small window where
severe weather will be possible late Thursday afternoon into the
early evening hours. The main threat will be from winds.

With the frontal passage storms will transition over to rains
through the late evening into the overnight hours. Ridging aloft
and the exiting cold front will push moisture off to the east w
rains ending during the day on Friday. The weekend is shaping up
nicely although it will be on the cool side.

In the coastal waters... Small craft advisory will be needed on
Thursday with a possible gale warning for winds and seas behind
the front early Friday.

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.
