1151 pm cdt Wed aug 23 2017

Aviation
Shra along a slowly southward-moving frontal boundary will
continue to impact cll and uts through 08z before dissipating. Cxo
may be skirted by a stray shower but all other terminals are
expected to remain dry for the first few hours of the TAF period.

Directional convergence along the coast may result in a few pre-
dawn shra near gls and hou with tsra shra activity spreading near
the remainder of terminals with heating later by early afternoon.

Expect this activity to dissipate with loss of daytime heating by
early evening, with ifr to MVFR visibility restrictions and
variable and gusty winds should tsra shra impact a terminal.

Otherwise,VFR conditions are expected to prevail with northeast
to southeast winds 10 knots or less through the period. Any
impacts from tropical storm harvey are not expected until after
the extended TAF period.

update...

further update with storms still ongoing but showing a general
weakening trend have raised pops a little further south down into
the houston metro for the midnight to 6 am period. Outflow could
slowly sag south with weak flow into and across the boundary will
probably see mainly showers but a few thunderstorms will probably
continue through the remainder of the night. Temperatures also
running cooler back in the rain cooled air.

Tropics...

still no real changes to the first 72-96 hours but NHC did make
some changes to the 96+ hr time period taking the storm westward
out of the area but they also stressed that confidence is low at
that point which is clearly shown in the forecast cone - very
large and nearly circular forecast at the end period. Where it
drifts to is still very much in question.

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.
