Winds are forecast to gradually subside from west to east tonight as the front nears and then pushes through the region. A brief period of west winds will follow the frontal passage, with an onshore flow returning Thursday night into Friday. South winds will increase again over the weekend in association with another storm system forecast to affect the area.

Severe weather potential through the evening into overnight...

Heavy rainfall and severe potential again over the weekend...

Synopsis
Will be brief as severe weather ongoing in the forecast area.

Tornado watch is in effect until 9 pm for a majority of the
western portion of the forecast area. Enhanced risk for severe
storms into the evening and overnight period.

Discussion
A vigorous storm system will be moving across the southern
plains tonight into early Thursday. Jet streak and strong positive
vorticity will be rounding the upper level system and across the
forecast for the evening into the overnight hours. Meanwhile,
strong low level jet and abundant gulf moisture will be in place.

Therefore, supercell clusters of thunderstorms will continue for
the remainder of the afternoon, possibly consolidating into a
squall line later this evening and overnight. All forms of severe
weather will be possible. Strong wind damage and large hail, with
a few tornadoes, as cells should have good rotation from the
elevated shear.

Dry slot should move in during the overnight hours quickly
tapering off activity by the morning hours.

A couple of fair weather days, until the next storm system
organizes and moves through the region. Looks like main event will
be late Sunday into early Monday, with heavy rainfall and severe
weather potential. However, GFS does show a lead short wave moving
across late Saturday and Saturday night, that the ECMWF does not
pick up on. At this point will just have chance pops for that time
period before likely pops on late Sunday into Sunday night.

Marine
Strong south winds will begin to decrease later tonight as the low
pressure system begins to depart the region and pressure gradient
relaxes.

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.
