ifr conditions will persist early this morning but clouds will
begin to break up by mid morning as high pressure settles over
central texas and drier air works into the region.VFR conditions
are expected this afternoon into tonight. Another area of low
pressure and an associated warm front will approach the area on
Thursday. Ceilings will begin to lower near the coast after 06z
with a mix of MVFR ifr ceilings after 09z possible at coastal taf

discussion...

overcast skies and lingering light showers prevailed particularly
across the central and southern portions of the forecast area as
a cold front moved across the region overnight and early this
morning.

Area of high pressure and drier air will move into the the area
during the morning and afternoon hours, limiting shower activity.

However, model guidance shows low level moisture returning to the
region this evening as the high pressure quickly moves
northeastward and another surface low pressure develops over the
western gulf of mexico. Expect shower activity to return across
the gulf waters and coastal regions tonight expanding further
inland overnight.

The surface low is expected to move towards the lower tx coast
overnight. Ahead of the low, associated warm front will gradually
move northward and into the local waters Thursday afternoon and
then inland Thursday night through Friday morning, increasing low
level moisture and instability. This will ramp up shower and
thunderstorm development across SE tx. Moreover, another upper
level trough will build across the rockies Thursday night though
Friday. As the surface low moves further northward, southerly flow
will continue to transport warm moist air across the region
Friday afternoon through early Saturday morning, maintaining the
wet and unstable weather pattern. The cold front associated to the
upper level trough will then move across SE tx Saturday
morning afternoon with drier air trailing behind it and
encompassing the local area Saturday evening night. By Monday and
Tuesday, low level moisture will once again increase, as another
surface low pressure moves across the lower tx coast and into the
local coastal waters. Expect another round of showers Monday and
Tuesday.

High temperatures will be mainly between the low to upper 60s
except Friday and Saturday were highs will range between the upper
60s to the mid 70s due to the warm moist air mass in place. Low
temperatures should range between the low 40s to upper 50s
everyday expect Friday night were lows will be up in the low to
upper 60s. Also, due to surface lows and upper level troughs
moving in and out of the region, wind direction and speed will
continue to fluctuate throughout the forecast period. 24

northwest to north winds will increase early this morning as low
pressure over arkansas moves NE and weak high pressure builds into
central texas. A scec has been issued for the gulf waters this
morning but winds are expected to decrease quickly this afternoon as
this area of high pressure moves toward the western gulf. Winds will
veer to the NE tonight as the high drifts further east and another
area of low pressure develops off the south texas coast. This area
of low pressure will move north and bring a warm front toward the
coast on Thursday.

Winds will continue to veer to the SE late Thursday and Friday as
the low tracks inland across texas. Warm and moist air flowing over
the cooler shelf waters will likely yield areas of sea fog possibly
as early as Thursday night but more likely Fri sat. The next cold
front is expected to cross the coastal waters late Saturday. This
should end the fog threat as a weak offshore flow develops. Winds
will veer to the e-ne next Sun Mon and a fairly stout and persistent
east wind will prevail for about 24-36 hours. Tide levels could
again exceed 3.0 feet along the bolivar peninsula. 43

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.
