Winds will be north to northwest at 5-12 knots.

sfc high pressure centered over south central tx imparting a
generally light NW flow across area early this morning, with
temperatures in the lower to mid 50s away from the immediate
coast.

Global model guidance is in generally good agreement in the short
term, depicting a digging ern CONUS trof which sends a reinforcing
cold front through the area late tonight. Ahead of this feature,
plenty of Sun along with a warming low level temperature profile
(thermal ridge) will yield a seasonably mild afternoon. Having
been fairly well scoured of moisture by the front on Sunday, no
pcpn or even much in the way of cloud cover will accompany the
front, which will push through from late evening through the
overnight hours, and be well offshore by Tue morning. Temperatures
below seasonal normals (well below for lows) are expected Tue and
wed, with 40s forecast down to the i-10 corridor. The post
frontal sfc high traverses the area late wed, with a light onshore
flow and warmer temperatures returning on thu.

The warm up appears to be short lived, however, as the global
models show another robust upper trof digging into the
central ern CONUS by fri. Still some disparity in the guidance,
with the ECMWF a bit slower and definitely wetter with the
associated cdfnt than the GFS and cmc. Aside from these
differences, however, all advertise much cooler and drier weather
returning for the weekend.

modest north winds over the waters east of cameron will gradually
subside by this afternoon. Until then, small craft should
exercise caution. A reinforcing cold front is forecast to sweep
through the coastal waters after midnight tonight, ushering in
strong and gusty north winds that will persist through Wednesday
morning. A small craft advisory has been issued for the gulf
waters from late tonight through Tuesday, and will likely need to
be extended beyond this time. Surface high pressure will slide
east across the area Wednesday afternoon and evening, with a light
onshore flow developing by Thursday as the high moves off to the
east.

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.
