synopsis...

pleasant weather day across the forecast area with plenty of
sunshine and temperatures around 60f to the lower 60s with low
humidity, as influence of a surface ridge along the gulf coast and
dry northwest flow aloft.

discussion...

a relatively benign and a bit cooler than seasonal normal
conditions look to be in store for the week ahead as upper level
trough remains east of the mississippi and and an upper level
ridge over the west.

This pattern will allow for a couple of reinforcing cold fronts to
move across. The first will be on late Monday night into early
Tuesday morning, then another on Thursday night. The gulf does not
"open-up" before the fronts arrive, therefore meager moisture
return means frontal passages should be dry.

A bit of a shift in the weather pattern by next weekend, with more
of a southwest flow to develop aloft could bring enough moisture
to cause a few showers ahead of a short wave on next Saturday
night into Sunday.

Rua
marine...

winds will become more westerly to southwesterly on Monday as
surface high moves off to the east, and the next cold front
approaches the region. This cold front will move across the
coastal waters late Monday night and early Tuesday morning. A
period of strong offshore flow will develop behind the front
during Monday night into Tuesday, with the possibility of small
craft advisory or small craft exercise caution conditions.

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.
