Discussion
18z aviation discussion follows.

Aviation
Scattered showers mostly along the sea breeze will continue to
redevelop farther inland in the coming hours before maturing into
some TS at times. Vct remains the most likely to see TS early
this afternoon followed by cot where models and satellite trends
also appear favorable. Showers may linger overnight at any of the
terminals which could disrupt low ceiling potential, so will omit
sub-vfr mention for now until newer data suggest otherwise. Winds
will be generally light well away from ts.

short term (today through Sunday)...

tropical moisture continues to move into the area under an upper
level disturbance. While the majority of the moisture continues
north and stays over the gulf waters, enough will move over the area
to keep at least a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms
possible through the morning. Isolated showers have already begun to
develop over the waters and move over the coastal bend. These will
likely diminish by mid-morning with a better chance for more
widespread showers and thunderstorms later in the afternoon as the
seabreeze moves though. With pwats over 2 inches for much of the
area, any showers or thunderstorms that do form could produce
locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Moisture continues to stream in from the west, with a 700mb vort max
just to our west which should provide enough support for at least
some isolated to scattered showers this afternoon and evening. With
this in mind, have increased pops to near 40 percent over the
western most counties.

Temperatures will remain near normal, with heat index values peaking
from 105 to 109. By Sunday, the cloud cover will diminish somewhat,
and we will return to slightly warmer than normal temperatures and
again flirt with heat advisory criteria.

Long term (Sunday night through Friday)...

the mid-level ridge will begin to move in from the west Sunday night
which should help subside shower storm activity through the week.

However, will maintain slight rain chances across the brush country
Sunday evening as a h7 trough sinks south across the region. Rain
activity should be shifted farther east and south for the rest of
the week with isolated showers storms possible on and off across the
gulf waters where pwats between 1.5 to 1.9 inches are expected. The
best chances for showers storms to occur are during the overnight
and morning hours. Isolated activity will be possible inland, but
should be very sporadic as h85 temperatures continue to run warm,
further hindering activity. Most, if any, showers storms develop
inland, it should be along the sea breeze.

Kept rather persistent with temperatures with highs near 90 degrees
along the immediate coast, warming to the mid to upper 90s near and
west of highway 77, with highs up to 105 across the western brush
country. Heat indices over 105 degrees are expected daily for most
locations, with heat advisories likely to return for at least the
southern coastal bend Monday through Thursday as values are expected
to reach between 110-115 degrees. Warm and muggy nights will be in
store through the week with lows in the mid upper 70s to lower 80s.

Marine...

weak to moderate onshore flow is expected through the week, with a
more moderate flow reaching scec levels expected during the
afternoon and overnight hours Monday and Monday night. Lingering
moisture across the region will maintain isolated rain chances daily
through the week.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
