Marine Weather and Tides
Pelican Bay, TX

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Short term
Tonight
isolated thunderstorms across the east and southeast counties will
quickly dissipate around sunset with the loss of surface heating,
giving way to another warm and humid night. A stratus deck may
move northward into central texas, but with weak low level flow
will have trouble making it north of i-20. Low temperatures will
be roughly 5 to 10 degrees above normal for late may, ranging from
the upper 60s to lower and middle 70s.

Long term
Friday through Thursday
it will be another warm and humid day Friday with a slight chance
of afternoon showers and thunderstorms east of the i-35 corridor.

With the upper level ridge to the west, we will be under northwest
to northerly flow aloft. This should allow a upper level disturbance
in the flow aloft to move across oklahoma Friday afternoon and
into north and central texas Friday night. Showers and
thunderstorms are expected to develop across oklahoma Friday
afternoon. This activity should start to weaken as it moves into
north texas Friday evening, but some strong to marginally severe
storms will be possible with the main threats being gusty winds up
to 60 mph and heavy rain that may result in some street and
stream flooding. Some of this activity may survive into central
texas overnight Friday night. Highs Friday will range from the
lower 90s east to the upper 90s northwest. Lows Friday night will
be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

The upper level ridge currently to our west will build eastward
into the forecast area over the weekend as a tropical system moves
up across the north-central gulf of mexico Saturday and into the
middle gulf coast Sunday. This will result in hot and humid, but
generally rain-free weather across north and central texas through
the memorial day weekend. Highs will be lower to mid 90s east to
102 degrees west. Lows will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Heat index values Sunday and Monday will be in the upper 90s
to near 105 degrees. Given that this will be our first heat
wave of the season, we will emphasize the heat and its impact
in our hazardous weather outlook and in social media graphics. If
the heat index values look to be a degree or two higher, we will
have to look at possibly issuing a heat advisory for parts of the
region for Sunday and Monday.

An upper level ridge is forecast to dominate the weather across
north and central texas Tuesday through Friday with hot and rain-
free weather. The GFS and ECMWF forecast surface temperatures
(not MOS guidance) indicate upper 90s northeast to over 108
degrees northwest mid to late week. For the official forecast
highs have gone with mid 90s northeast to 104 degrees northwest.

Aviation issued 1257 pm cdt Thu may 24 2018
north texas is currently split between an upper trough axis to the
east and a ridge to the west. This pattern will amplify over the
next 24 to 48 hours, enhancing the northerly flow at the mid and
upper levels. Hi-resolution model guidance continues to indicate
thunderstorm development in the southern plains on Friday, which
may organize into a convective complex while pushing south of the
red river in the north flow aloft. The most likely timing of
convection would be during the late Friday evening hours for the
dfw metroplex and overnight Friday night for kact. This will be
something to consider in future TAF issuances as the potential for
convection begins to fall within the extended portion of the dfw
taf.

For the time being, any diurnal showers and storms should remain
isolated and mainly east of area TAF sites. Otherwise, the surge
of overnight stratus appears weaker tonight, and MVFR CIGS will be
limited to the kact taf.

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.
