DISCUSSION.

Note Aviation Discussion below corresponding to the 00z TAFs.

AVIATION.

VFR conditions expected during the TAF period. Moderate/breezy north wind this evening, becoming light overnight, then weak/moderate Tuesday late morning/afternoon.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 321 PM CDT Mon Sep 28 2020/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday Night) .

The cold front has exited South Texas with gusty northerly winds continuing this late afternoon over land areas. Should see winds begin to diminish after 6-7 pm. Surface high pressure building in behind the front will continue to bring cooler and drier air to the region through the short term. This will lead to cool nights in mid 50s for inland locations tonight and Tuesday, with lows in the 60s along the coastal region. Highs for Tuesday should warm into the low to mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Small Craft Advisories remain in place through early Tuesday afternoon, with winds tapering off from north to south. As for Coastal Flooding, swell periods remain elevated, but the overall cresting trend for tides remains continue to lessen with time. With the strong offshore flow in place, will expect tides to have a difficult time to reach 2.0 ft MSL again late tonight. Will need to continue to monitor late tonight.

LONG TERM (Wednesday through Monday) .

Pleasant conditions expected through the week and into the weekend as high pressure aloft remains in control. Models prog weak embedded short waves tracking south to southeast on the eastern periphery of the high at times. However, the moisture will remain limited through the period with no precip anticipated. PWATs are progged to remain below 1 inch. Light onshore winds will return by mid week, but will remain light and variable during the night. Onshore winds are progged to become weak to moderate by the weekend. This will lead to a gradual warmup the latter part of the week and into the weekend. Shallow low level moisture is progged to return by the weekend, but skies will remain primarily mostly clear. The low level moisture combined with the dry air aloft will be conducive for patchy early morning fog over the weekend, but will hold off any mention of fog that far out in time.

MARINE .

Strong north wind will continue in wake of the morning cold front through tonight and Tuesday. Small Craft Advisory conditions will continue into early Tuesday afternoon over the offshore waters before weakening. Moderate northerly flow will continue Tuesday night before weakening further.

A generally light and variable flow will prevail Wednesday and Thursday, then the winds strengthen slightly from the northeast Friday. A weak to moderate onshore flow is expected by late Friday and into the weekend. Precip is not anticipated due to drier air across the region.

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.
