Marine Weather and Tides
Groves, TX

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

A few storms continue this evening in the airmass that has not
been worked over today. This activity will continue into the
overnight hours. Look for mostly clear skies twrds sr and temps
around 70 to start the day. Temps will recover quickly with
another round of storms during the afternoon evening hours.

Current zones are fine.

Aviation...

scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms continue across c
la with colliding outflow boundaries. This will continue the
threat of thunderstorms for aex through 01z, with wind gusts up to
30-40 kts possible. Further south, afternoon convection has
diminished greatly across SE tx & S la to remove the vcts from
terminals. Likely a repeat performance for Saturday afternoon,
placing vcts in all terminals, with the best chances between
20-24z.

discussion...

scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms that have
developed across much of southern louisiana this afternoon will
gradually wane into this evening as airmass gets worked over.

However good indications with the weak disturbance in the area,
activity will develop again tonight offshore and near the coast.

While some drier air appears to try and work in being this trough
across the western portions of the area, the eastern half will
remain in this daily pattern for a few more days.

Through the weekend into early next week, alberto should be moving
through the central gulf towards the central gulf coast. At this
time, the result to our forecast area will be the infusion of
drier air mass across the region resulting in warmer afternoon
temperatures and lower rain chances. The only exception at this
time looks to be the far eastern zones. After alberto passes rain
chances remain low through the remainder of the forecast.

Marine... Light winds and low seas are expected for the next
couple of days, however seas are expected to build over the
weekend as swells move into the coastal waters from alberto.

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.
