Update
A beautiful day is expected across south central texas today with
clear skies and light south to southwest winds. Morning soundings
from del rio, fort worth, and corpus christi and aircraft soundings
out of austin san antonio show very dry air remains in place around
the region. This drier air and daytime mixing will allow for
afternoon temperatures to climb into the mid 60s to lower 70s today
and have made minor updates to increase afternoon highs a few
degrees. Remainder of forecast is on track.

short term (today through Saturday)...

after a cool start this morning, a warm up trend is expected across
south central texas with highs in the mid to upper 60s most areas
under sunny skies.

For this evening into Saturday morning, expect clouds to develop
across the coastal plains and then push to the north as low level
moisture increases. Lows should be in the 40s with daytime
temperatures reaching the low to mid 70s ahead of the next cold
front to arrive our area on Sunday.

Long term (Saturday night through Thursday)...

clouds will be increasing Saturday night into Sunday as well as rain
chances with the arrival of the cold front. The best chances for rain
will be mainly along and south of highway 90 as the cold front pushes
to the south and a surface inverted trough moves into the deep south.

Chances for rain continue Sunday night into Monday and even Tuesday as
a mid to upper level trough axis slowly pushes from the southern
plains into the middle mississippi valley. Once this feature moves
away from the area, a short period with limited shower activity is
expected late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Rain chances increase once again on Wednesday as the surface inverted
trough moves into the middle texas coast and an upper level short
wave digs down to our area. Rain chances rapidly come to an end from
west to east on Thursday.

Temperatures should be on the cooler side of things in the wake of
Sunday's cold front with a warm up expected for the latter part of
the week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
