Near term [through today]
Convection has already developed and was moving inland across the
eastern big bend early this morning. An active day for showers and
thunderstorms is expected with deep layer moisture in place (pw's
2.0"+) and moderate west to southwest flow. MOS guidance agrees with
pops in the likely category across the entire cwa. Highs will be
around 90.

Short term [tonight through Tuesday]
Flat surface ridging will reside across the tri-state region as
high pressure will be positioned in the northern gulf. The high
pressure center will slide westward Tuesday in response to a
surface trough moving into the southeast. Deep tropical moisture
will remain in place with pwats around 2 inches. Seabreeze
activity will be the main driver of showers and storms each day
with added convection due to a weak mid level trough to our
northwest. Precipitation chances will run at climo norms to
slightly above for late july. High temperatures will be in the
lower 90s with lows in the mid 70s.

Long term [Tuesday night through Sunday]
The east coast trough will deepen once again as a shortwave trough
moves across the midwest. This will keep our area in generally a
higher precipitation chance regime with the seabreeze fronts as
the main driver with some added mid level support from the trough.

Therefore, a typical wet pattern is in store for the long term.

Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s and lows in the mid 70s.

Aviation [through 06z Monday]
Patchy fog and low clouds are expected to develop before daybreak
but any reductions in visibility or CIGS should be brief. Scattered
to numerous showers and thunderstorms will expand inland from south
to north across our area. As usual, any visibility reductions due to
showers storms will be brief.

Marine
High pressure will dominate the northern gulf coastal waters
through this period featuring light to moderate southwest to west
winds and generally low seas. Showers and thunderstorms will be
possible each day especially in the overnight and early morning
hours. Locally higher winds and seas can be expected in and around
thunderstorms.

Fire weather
No concerns.

Hydrology
Typical summertime showers and thunderstorms will develop each
day. Some minor or nuisance flooding is possible in urban and
poor drainage areas around slower moving storms. Widespread
flooding is not expected.

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.
