320 am cst Thu jan 24 2019

Short term Deep layer northwest flow will remain in firm
control of the gulf south through Saturday. Strong subsidence and
a deep pool of dry air will keep skies clear through the end of
the week. A thermal trough will also linger over the region, and
this will keep temperatures cooler than average through Saturday.

Daytime highs will only climb into the 50s today and tomorrow.

Some slight modification in the airmass on Saturday should allow
for highs closer to 60 degrees. The clear and dry conditions will
allow for a fairly large diurnal range, and expect to see
overnight lows fall into the 30s tonight and tomorrow night across
all of the forecast area. By Saturday night, temperatures should
rise slightly into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Long term The benign weather conditions will persist on Sunday
and Monday as a more zonal flow pattern begins to take hold in the
upper levels. A surface high will remain in firm control of the
region, and expect to see continued mostly clear skies and low
humidity values. The biggest change will be a return to more
normal temperatures with highs in the 60s both Sunday and Monday
and overnight lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Another northern stream trough will begin to dig into the eastern
third of the nation Monday night into Tuesday, and this will drive
a cold front through the forecast area late Monday night and early
Tuesday. Although the duration of moisture advection into the
region will be limited to only a few hours, there should be enough
forcing along the front to produce scattered showers as it slices
through the cwa. Have put chance pop in the forecast from late
Monday night through Tuesday afternoon to reflect this.

Temperatures will be significantly cooler on Tuesday as strong
cold air advection takes hold by Tuesday morning. Highs should
only warm into the upper 40s over northern zones and the upper 50s
over southern zones. Strong subsidence and dry air advection in
the wake of the front and trough axis will lead to rapidly
clearing skies Tuesday night. These clear skies will persist into
Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure settles over the gulf
south. Strong cold air advection will drive temperatures well
below freezing across most of the CWA Tuesday and Wednesday nights,
and highs on Wednesday and Thursday will be a good 10 degrees
below average in the lower to middle 50s.

Aviation MVFR category CIGS will continue to gradually scatter out and clear
from the west and northwest over the next few hours withVFR
conditions expected to return to kmcb, kasd and knew by around 10z
and kgpt around 11z. Stronger and gusty northwest winds will also
decrease through 12z today. 22 td

Marine Strong winds in the wake of yeserday's cold frontal passage should
undergo steady weakening during the 4 am to 9 am period this morning
as the pressure gradient relaxes due to a lobe of high pressure
moving closer to the central gulf coast region. Have maintained the
small craft advisory in effect through 6 am this morning and added
"small craft exercise caution" headline for all waters except the
tidal lakes from 6 am to 9 am. Winds will be generally 15 knots or
less from late morning through this evening, but then reinforcing
high pressure and cold air advection from the northwest will likely
cycle winds back up to 15 to 20 knots again late tonight and early
Friday morning across the coastal waters. The center of high
pressure should elongate across the central gulf coast region late
Friday into Saturday which is expected to allow the winds to ease to
around 10 knots or less across the marine area. These lighter winds
should mostly prevail until the next strong cold front which looks
to move through the central gulf coast region on Tuesday. 22 td

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.
