increase in coverage as well. Winds will light and generally vrb
tonight and become SW Monday.

discussion...

weak sfc front remains over E tx, stretching n-s very near a
beaumont to lufkin line and on to low pressure centered west of
tyler. Aloft, upper trof remains over east tx.

Ongoing isolated to scattered shower activity will continue into
early evening before largely dissipating inland, and in a familiar
pattern, continue over the gulf waters and increase in coverage
during the overnight hours across coastal la. This activity will
subsequently expand northward through Monday into east central la,
with E tx seeing a reprieve thanks to some relatively drier air
pushing in from the west as the upper trof and associated sfc
features weaken and begin to lift out to the ne.

As the trof continues to pull away on tue, mstr will return to e
tx around a wwd expanding sub-tropical ridge over the gulf, with
areawide scattered showers and thunderstorms expected.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are tap Wed and
thu as global models continue to depict an upper trof digging into
the central conus, sending a weak frontal boundary into the
region. Rain chances decrease a bit Fri and Sat as the front
washes out and a deep layer ridge builds over the SE conus, with
even lower chances Sun as this feature builds wwd.

Temperatures through the period will continue to average well
above seasonal normals.

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.
