245 pm cdt Mon jul 22 2019

Short term (today through Tuesday night)
Moisture has increased over the area, with pwats near 2 inches. With
the relatively strong sea breeze this afternoon, we've already begun
seeing some showers and thunderstorms develop. Some of these could
be fairly strong today, with gusty winds and perhaps some small
hail. These should begin to dissipate by later this evening as we
lose the daytime heating. A trough over the eastern united states is
helping to bring a weak cold front through south texas by Tuesday
morning. The timing on this is a bit tricky, with models being a bit
inconsistent with it, but it looks as though it will be moving
through by tomorrow morning. Did not change pops much from the
previous forecast as we still expect pops to remain around 40 to 50
in the north during the morning, and 50 to 60 in the south during
the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to be a few degrees cooler
for Tuesday and Tuesday night, but humidity will still remain
Tuesday ahead of drier air moving in Tuesday night.

Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
Wednesday and Thursday are expected to remain dry with much lower
than normal humidity due to a rare july cold front that will push
through the CWA tomorrow. Incredibly low pwats 0.75-1 inches are
expected with surface dewpoints in the 50s and 60s. Temperatures,
especially at night, will be slightly below normal both days.

Moisture return is expected Thursday night and continue through the
remainder of the forecast. Isolated to scattered convection will be
possible from Friday morning onward. The better rain chances will
occur by late weekend into Monday as deeper moisture is drawn
northwestward into the CWA due to an approaching midlevel trough
axis. Temps will be back to more typical late july readings by
early next week.

Marine
Light to moderate onshore flow today will become variable
over night, then northerly Tuesday as a weak cold front moves across
the area. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will begin
increasing tonight, becoming likely over the waters by
Tuesday afternoon. A small window of brief SCA conditions may be
possible early Wednesday across the offshore waters in the wake of
the rare july cold front. Otherwise, no hazards other than
convective-based, will prevail through the entire forecast period.

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.
