350 am cdt Sat jul 22 2017

Near term now through Saturday night A weak mid-level low
retrograding along the southern periphery of a broad ridge over the
central plains is progged to settle over the texas louisiana border
through the near term period. With the low now to our west, weak
upper-level ridging builds over the local area from the north, with
the associated subsidence maintaining a layer of relatively dry air
aloft. All the while, a surface ridge extending from the western
atlantic into the central gulf will keep surface and boundary layer
flow generally out of the south and southwest. Given this setup,
we're once again expecting scattered shower and thunderstorm
activity to develop across the area today, with storms initially
firing offshore and along the coast in the morning hours before
spreading inland as the day progresses. Ample instability (mlcape
values around 2500 j kg), coupled with the aforementioned layer of
dry air aloft and lingering mid-level height falls from the
retrograding low, could allow for a few storms to become strong to
marginally severe this afternoon. These stronger storms will be
capable of producing gusty downburst winds, on top of the typical
summertime threats of frequent cloud-to-ground lightning and locally
heavy rainfall. With decent steering flow still in place overhead,
not expecting much of a flooding threat aside from some possible
minor nuisance flooding in urban areas. Convective activity over
inland areas will once again taper after sunset, with a few
lingering showers and storms possible along the immediate coast and
offshore overnight tonight.

In terms of heat, still expecting to see afternoon temps in the low
90's inland and upper 80's to around 90 along the coast, with heat
indices generally reaching 100 to 103 degrees. Muggy low temps
continue tonight, with lows in the mid 70's inland to upper 70's
along the immediate coast. 49

Short term Sunday through Monday night An upper trof over the
great lakes region advances into the interior eastern states
through Sunday night, and while this feature moves off into the
extreme northeast states later in the period, shortwave energy
phases to form a shortwave trof over the southeast states on
Monday night. The shortwave trof will have a favorable impact on
convective development potential later in the long term period,
while in the meantime expect a series of modest shortwaves to move
across the region in the light westerly flow aloft as a surface
ridge over the northern central gulf maintains a light south to
southwest flow over the area. This pattern will continue to
promote scattered convection developing each day and lingering
into the evening hours, and some strong storms will be possible,
producing gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy downpours.

Highs will be in the lower 90s with lows mostly in the mid 70s
except for upper 70s at the coast. 29

Long term Tuesday through Friday The shortwave trof over
the southeast states shifts slowly eastward through Wednesday then
is absorbed into a larger scale upper trof which evolves over the
eastern states on Thursday into Friday. A surface low well to the
northeast brings a weak surface trof through the area on Tuesday,
and with the presence of the shortwave trof, expect scattered to
numerous showers and storms to develop. Scattered convective
development is expected for each following day due to daytime
heating and the sea breeze as the axis of the shortwave trof
moves east of the area and is absorbed into the evolving larger
scale upper trof. Highs will be predominately in the lower 90s
with lows ranging from the mid 70s inland to the upper 70s at the
coast. 29

Marine Expect showers and thunderstorms to continue forming over
the marine area during overnight and morning hours before moving
inland through the afternoon. These storms will be capable of
producing gusty straight line winds and frequent cloud to water
lightning. Expect locally higher waves in and around storms as well.

Outside of these storms, south to southwest winds around 8 to 13
knots and seas around a foot prevail through tonight. Winds then
shift to more westerly around 10 to 15 knots Sunday through early
next week, with seas building to around 2 to 3 feet during that
period. 49

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.
