Marine Weather and Tides
Lakeway, TX

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

1008 pm cdt Sun jun 25 2017

Showers and thunderstorms have generally dissipated across the area
aside from some light stratiform rain over portions of lee and
fayette counties that should dissipate over the next hour. Hi-res
models are generally in good agreement that additional convection
will not develop until possibly very late in the overnight hours
just before sunrise as some streamer showers and possibly a rogue
thunderstorm develops. Thus, we have removed rain chances over the
rio grande plains for most of tonight and decreased to 20-30 pops
elsewhere, only mentioning very isolated thunderstorms in the coastal
plains prior to 4 am. We have included 40 pops for scattered shower
activity across most of the CWA from 4-10 am just in case remnant
outflow boundaries with nearly moist adiabatic lapse rates allow for
some early development, but only very isolated thunderstorms are
expected due to stability near the melting level.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected across most of the
region by late tomorrow morning into the afternoon hours, with the
best chances for storm initiation in the coastal plains along outflow
boundaries and a possible sea breeze. Convection should also develop
over the edwards plateau and western hill country counties along an
outflow boundary expected to be near or northwest of our northwest-
most counties associated with a complex of storms expected to move
southeast tonight from the texas panhandle. Depending on how far
southeast this activity makes it tonight, rain chances may need to be
increased later tomorrow afternoon and evening over much of the cwa
as additional shortwave forcing may help expand the coverage of
showers and thunderstorms along this particular outflow boundary.

aviation... 00z update
vfr conditions will prevail this evening before MVFR CIGS develop in
the 08z-10z period. Kdrt will see MVFR CIGS developing around 12z.

MVFR CIGS will begin to lift and becomeVFR again between 16z-18z.

Winds will be east 5-10 knots tonight then E SE near 10 knots after
16z Monday. After 18z will begin to see scattered convection develop
and continue through sunset. With location and timing difficult to
determine at this point have gone ahead and included vcsh. Winds in
or near any convection will be variable and gusty.

short term (tonight through Monday night)...

convective focus today has been largely controlled by a sharp
moisture gradient where deeper tropical moisture is being held east
of i-35 by circulation around a tutt low over the NW gulf. Low level
winds are mainly E or NE which has limited moisture advection for the
counties far inland. This has led to some over-forecasting of
precipitation for the western half, especially from the models
attempting to develop an unstable NW flow pattern with storms forming
over the high plains and moving south. Tonight's forecast initially
remains marked by shortwave ridging and no connection between the
tropical moisture and the monsoonal triggered convection to the
north. There is still small chance for a round of weakening storms to
arrive from the north late tonight, but a better low level moisture
advection pattern for daytime convection will set up as the effects
of the tutt low retreat east. Monday night is suggested to be the
best opportunity for high plains storms to move south into the area
given some mid-level dynamics dropping south. Nevertheless will
continue to undercut pops until synoptic scale models lose their
moist bias.

Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)...

Tuesday looks to be the last day for all areas to see rain potential
with deterministic runs showing mid level ridging to cut off the nw
flow pattern Tuesday evening. Pooled moisture over the coastal
prairies a weakness in the upper ridge over the gulf coast will
continue into Friday, so isolated to scattered mainly daytime
convection will continue over the same counties that received the
bulk of rains over the past day-and-a-half. Mid-level ridging
continues to steadily build, with no rain and increasing heat indices
expected next weekend.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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 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.
