Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Weak to moderate onshore flow will persist today through Friday due to surface high pressure over the northwest gulf of mexico and surface low pressure over west texas. A weak to moderate southerly flow can be expected Friday through Sunday, then flow will increase slightly to moderate levels by Monday. Brief periods of moderate flow for the bays and nearshore waters south of port aransas can be expected each afternoon.

DISCUSSION.

Updated for 18Z Aviation Discussion.

AVIATION.

Mostly VFR conditions will persist through the TAF period. Haze could leave visibility a bit lower, but still within VFR criteria. MVFR conditions are possible around sunrise for all sites around sun-up, but expect conditions will improve to VFR by 14Z to 15Z Friday.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 639 AM CDT Thu Jul 2 2020/

DISCUSSION .

Note Aviation Discussion below corresponding to the 12z TAFs.

AVIATION .

Mixture of MVFR and VFR ceilings early this morning will transition to predominate VFR by late morning/early afternoon. Around 6 miles in haze anticipated today in response to the Saharan Dust. Expect MVFR ceilings to develop 06-12z Friday, along with patchy MVFR visibilities. Generally light onshore flow early this morning, will become moderate/breezy late this morning through early evening. The wind will become generally light near the end of TAF period.

PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 429 AM CDT Thu Jul 2 2020/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday) .

Concur with deterministic runs that the upper level high pressure system will meander over the region during the period. The NAM predicts near normal PWAT values today, yet CIN and the upper ridge should preclude precipitation. Drier conditions Friday will preclude precipitation. Maximum Heat Index values 100-105F today and Friday. Applying expected sea state/wind to the local expert system suggests a low risk of rip currents today and Friday. Coastal flooding not expected during the period when considering persistence and ETSS output. GOES-16 Dust RGB depict the Saharan Dust over the region. The GMAO GOES FP Aerograms suggests that visibilities may become restricted today.

LONG TERM (Friday night through Wednesday) .

High pressure will remain in place through Friday, as will the hot temperatures and dry conditions. Going into the weekend the high pressure system will begin a slow shift to the west. Hot and dry conditions are still expected through the weekend. As the ridge moves west, a weak upper low will take its place over S TX going into Monday. As the low filters in, the available moisture will increase, as will our chances of precipitation, particularly over the Gulf waters, Coastal Bend, and Victoria Crossroads. EMCWF and GFS both show precipitable water values that are sufficient enough to warrant a chance of precipitation Tuesday and a slight chance on Wednesday. Instability appears to increase on Tuesday as well, and with significant CAPE values, would not be surprised to see some convective activity in these areas.

MARINE . Weak to moderate onshore flow expected today and Friday, due to surface high pressure over the NW Gulf of Mexico and surface low pressure over West TX. A weak to moderate southerly flow can be expected Friday night through Sunday, then increases slightly to moderate levels by Monday. Brief periods of moderate flow for the bays and nearshore waters south of Port Aransas can be expected each afternoon.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. 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 numerous 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.
