Synopsis..Low pressure continues to develop across north texas and the lower texas coast tonight. This has led to moderate southeast winds across the western gulf of mexico this evening. Scattered showers and an isolated Thunderstorm will be possible through the night, especially across the far offshore gulf waters. A weak cold front brings light northerly winds across the coastal waters Sunday morning into early next week. A stronger cold front is expected on Tuesday, with hazardous seas possible, especially offshore Monday night through Tuesday night.

Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Brownsville TX 1143 PM CST Sat Jan 25 2020

DISCUSSION. Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

AVIATION. VFR conditions will continue through the next several hours, but winds will lighten overnight ahead of an approaching weak cold front. This should allow low clouds to overspread the area with lowering ceilings by sunrise. By mid-morning, winds will shift to the north across the area with improving conditions through the day. High pressure will move overspread Sunday night with a strong signal for fog development overnight into Monday. Models indicate dense fog being possible, so this will be the main aviation concern late in the period.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 555 PM CST Sat Jan 25 2020/

DISCUSSION . Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

AVIATION . Clouds have managed to mix out in the low-levels this afternoon, leading to more VFR conditions for the past couple hours. As moisture continue to increase from the south ahead of an approaching upper-level disturbance, expect ceilings to fall late tonight into Sunday morning. MVFR categories seem likely with also the possibility of patchy fog ahead of a weak front. Once the front moves through, winds will shift to the north and conditions will improve to VFR through the rest of the day.

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 259 PM CST Sat Jan 25 2020/

SHORT TERM (Now through Sunday Night): High pressure across the northern Gulf of Mexico heads east as low pressure develops across the lower Texas coast in advance of a weak frontal passage by Sunday morning. Surface analysis shows a weak warm frontal boundary just south of the border, and a mid level disturbance is expected to head west to east, increasing lift through the evening and into tonight. Have generally stuck to the previous POPs, with increasing chances into tonight heading offshore behind the frontal boundary on Sunday.

CAMs continue to indicate a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening across the southeast, with veering 0-6 km bulk shear values near 40 kts, peak MUCAPE values near 1000 to 1200 j/kg, and low level lapse rates near 6.5 C/km. The best forcing probably stays south of the border and offshore. That being said, an isolated thunderstorm or two is possible by late afternoon or early evening, with a few rumbles of thunder through tonight, mainly across coastal counties. PWAT values climb to near 1.6 to 1.8 inches by this evening and edge further offshore into Sunday. Rainfall will generally remain below one quarter of an inch.

With abundant cloud cover and rain chances into tonight, have kicked low temperatures up slightly and carried the extra degree or two into the highs for Sunday. Patchy fog will likely develop across the northern ranchlands late this evening ahead of the cold front, spreading southward into the RGV overnight. Areas that experience any rainfall would have a better chance of locally dense fog. Expect conditions to improve Sunday morning behind the frontal boundary.

LONG TERM (Monday through Saturday): 500mb ridge across the state Monday will provide subsidence across south Texas and low to mid level moisture will be limited across the area until a 500mb shortwave trough moves across northwest Texas Tuesday. Both the GFS and ECMWF prog a chance of showers across the CWA Tuesday before drier air moves into the area in the wake of the upper level trough moving eastern across the state Tues afternoon. Subsidence will prevail across south Texas Wednesday with west to northwest flow aloft. Winds aloft will back to the southwest Thursday ahead of a 500mb low/trough developing and moving into northwest Mexico Thursday. The global models prog another shot of elevated convection developing across the area Thursday as low to mid level moisture increases. Rain chances should diminish from west to east Friday as drier air moves across south Texas but that will depend on the timing of the 500mb trough moving eastward across the state. Rain chances appear limited through the rest of the forecast period as subsidence increases late Friday into Saturday in the wake of the upper level trough.

MARINE (Now through Sunday Night): As high pressure across the northern Gulf of Mexico gives way to low pressure across the western Gulf of Mexico, expect southeasterly winds to keep seas elevated into tonight. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase into this evening and continue through tonight. A weak cold front with lighter northerly winds arrives on Sunday, allowing seas to subside into Sunday night and pushes any showers or thunderstorms further offshore.

Monday through Thursday . Light southeast winds will prevail across the coastal waters Monday with surface high pressure across the northern Gulf coast and low pressure across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and across northwest Texas. The pressure gradient will increase across the lower Texas coast briefly Mon night before weakening Tuesday as a cold front moves offshore Tues afternoon. Moderate southeast winds Mon night will veer to the south and diminish Tuesday before shifting to the northwest and increasing Tues night in the wake of the front. Small craft advisories will be needed for the coastal waters Tues night as strong north to northwest winds prevail across the lower Texas coast. The pressure gradient will begin to relax Wednesday with high pressure settling across deep south Texas Wed afternoon. Moderate north to northwest winds will prevail across the western Gulf Wednesday and veer to the east and diminish Wed night as the surface ridge moves eastward. Light east winds Wed night will increase slightly from the east to southeast Thursday as the pressure gradient increases slightly across the coastal waters.

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.
