synopsis...

latest ua analysis and WV imagery shows the active southern branch
of the jet continues to spread moisture acrs the gulf and adjacent
coastal areas. Another piece of energy embedded in the
west southwest flow aloft is crossing south tx and this is where
the closest precip is noted on the regional radar mosaic. After a
bit of a break in the cloud cover late yesterday, morning ir
satellite images show a little more in the way of mid and high
clouds to the southwest that are beginning to move into the area.

At the sfc, high pres is centered over the red river valley, with
a secondary ridge of high pres acrs the midwest. Winds acrs the
area are light and northeasterly or near calm, with temperatures
about 5 to 10 degrees below normal this morning, ranging from the
upper 30s to lower middle 40s.

discussion...

a generally benign weather pattern is setting up for much of the
upcoming week. The disturbance near south tx this morning is
progged to slide east today. Precipitation associated with this
feature will stay well south of the area, but an increase in mid
and high clouds can be expected today. The sfc high over the
midwest will slide southeast over the ohio valley, keeping an east
to northeast flow over the region. Despite fairly chilly
conditions this morning, expect temperatures will rebound this
aftn into the middle and upper 60s.

Dry weather is expected to persist through the week, with southern
stream energy aloft expected to shift east on Tuesday which should
spell an end to the intermittent mid and high clouds, and a little
more sunshine, for a few days. Shortwave energy dropping south
acrs the midwest and into the lower ms valley Wednesday into
Thursday will drive a weak front through the region. This boundary
is not expected to bring more than a slight increase in clouds and
a reinforcement of high pres over the region, with no significant
variation in temperatures. Lows through the week are expected to
be in the middle upper 40s to lower 50s and highs in the upper 60s
to lower 70s.

A gradual warming trend will take place by late in the week as the
sfc high becomes situated over the eastern conus, and modest
shortwave ridging passes over the region ahead of the next low
pres system taking shape over the western states. By Friday into
Saturday, wind profiles show southerly low level winds
transitioning to southwesterly aloft as the upper low trough
emerges over the high plains, with moisture increasing over the
region. Showers and tstms are expected to begin developing acrs
tx, spreading eastward into the area by Saturday morning. Another
shortwave following behind the initial system will maintain a
period of disturbed weather through the weekend.

marine...

a tight pres gradient between lower pres over the southern gulf
and high pres over the midwest will maintain modt to strong ne
winds today into Tuesday. Exercise caution headlines have been
expanded in area to include all of the outer coastal waters as
well as 0-20 nm east of intracoastal city, and extended in time
through at least this evening. Elevated winds are expected to
persist into Tuesday so anticipate that scec will need to be
extended further. Winds will diminish and become somewhat vrbl by
midweek as high pres builds south, with offshore flow bcmg
reinforced by another frontal passage Thursday. Winds will shift e
then SE by the end of the week as sfc high pres moves over the
eastern us. Dry weather is expected through the week, with the
next chc of rain not expected until next weekend.

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.
