Discussion A surface and upper lvl low is located over north
texas this afternoon. The associated cold front stretches from
around dallas to just west of houston. A drier air mass is pushing
into SW la and SE tx around the circulation of the upper low.

Tonight and Friday the nearly stacked low will continue east
into and across louisiana. Ahead of the front this afternoon
warming is occurring at the surface and cooling is occurring
aloft, however the air mass is drying. There remains a possibility
of isolated storms, and even 1 or 2 strong storms, but the chance
will decrease rapidly after sunset. Friday as the low passes
expected dreary, windy, and misty conditions. The coastal zones
will be near wind adv criteria.

A ridge will build over the region this weekend and linger into
early next week. Dry and cool conditions are expected.

Marine Low pressure will continue to deepen over north texas
while moving east tonight. The low will move across louisiana
Friday. Strong west to west northwest winds are expected. Winds
will become sustained 25 to 30 knots in the gulf waters with
frequent gale force gusts. Winds and seas are expected to subside
Friday night into Saturday.

Water levels are expected to fall below normal Friday, however
with the fetch more westerly, levels are not expected to fall
below -1 mllw at this time.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
