Not as confident in fog tonight. Still CIGS should lower at bpt
late tonight and elsewhere during the morning with showers
developing. Thunder is possible at bpt, lft and lch tomorrow
afternoon. The most vis restriction before the rain will likely be
at aex.

discussion...

the morning fog gave way to an overcast, but tranquil day across
much of the area. The cloud cover is being ushered across the
region by a well defined upper low spinning across western texas
this afternoon. This feature and it's associated surface low,
will work its way eastward through the night making for a somewhat
more tricky overnight forecast. Guidance is once again in good
agreement on the development of fog overnight and this appears
likely across much of southwest louisiana and southeast texas.

However, as the surface low moves up the texas coast early
tomorrow morning, the thinking is that there will be enough
mixing isolated showers to limit if not completely prevent
significant visibility reductions across southeast texas. Any fog
that does develop will lift into a low level ceiling by mid
morning Wednesday as showers and perhaps a couple of
thunderstorms become more widespread.

As the trof moves across the area Wednesday, it is forecast to
merge with another more elongated trof digging south across the
central u.S. This combined feature will broaden the moisture field
aloft while low level moisture wraps around the western side of
the surface low. This will allow for scattered showers to
continue across the area Wednesday night and much of the day Thursday
despite the passage of a frontal boundary Wednesday evening.

The moisture finally shifts east of the area late Thursday with
drier air and high pressure building in for the end of the week.

Low end rain chances return beginning Sunday as the first in a
progressive series of upper level disturbances moves across the
region. A second disturbance swings across the area christmas day
although the best moisture is presently progged to stay north of
the area. The official forecast will carry only isolated pops on
christmas day although the airmass is one typical of mild
temperatures and overcast skies.

weak easterly flow will persist through late Wednesday as high
pressure settles over the southeast u.S. A frontal boundary will
move through the coastal waters Wednesday night turning winds out
of the northwest. The pressure gradient behind the front is
forecast to tighten Thursday. Offshore flow to SCA criteria are
likely with a potential for gale force. Winds will diminish
beginning Friday as gradient weakens and high pressure builds over
the area.

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.
