Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX Issued by National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX 606 AM CST Tue Dec 10 2019

AVIATION. A front moved over all TAF sites early this morning and has brought light rain showers, intermittent MVFR/IFR ceilings, and strong northerly winds. Rain is anticipated to continue through the morning hours and into the early afternoon, during which time northerly winds will be 15 to 25 knots and gusting to 30 knots at times. Expect a mix of MVFR/IFR conditions during the same period. Ceilings lift this afternoon from west to east and winds begin to relax. VFR conditions for the remainder of the period.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 556 AM CST Tue Dec 10 2019 by National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX/

SHORT TERM . The cold front we have been watching is progressing through the area this morning. As of 4am the front is noted along a line from Port O'Connor to Alice. The temperatures drop is rather quick in the east, but much slower in the west. In fact, despite a frontal passage in Cotulla shortly after midnight, temperatures are still in the mid 60s there. Dewpoints are coming down west and temperatures should gradually decrease there as well. Convection is scattered across much of the area, but as expected is generally very light. A few more robust showers are noted offshore. Expect this will be the general trend for today. Most locations will see rain . but rainfall totals will be small. Once the front moves through and cooler air settles in, temperatures should be generally steady through the middle part of the day, with daytime temperatures in the 50s. Gusty winds develop behind the front as well. Have gone ahead and issued a wind advisory for coastal counties up to Victoria where the strongest winds are expected due to a strong LLJ setting up mid-day. NAM is by far the most aggressive with the LLJ with 925mb winds up to 45-50 kts. EWX radar just on the edge of the strongest LLJ winds at this point, but VAD indicating 40kts there, so NAM may not be too far off. Strongest gusts should be along the coast where warm waters will lead to strongest mixing. Have slowed decrease in cloud cover a bit as upper level trough/energy seems to be lingering over the coast a bit longer. Thus, temperatures may be just a bit warmer tonight. Still think much of the area will be in the upper 30s, but coastal areas will likely stay in the lower 40s. Upper level system will kick out by Wednesday with mainly clear skies, but still cool temperatures. Highs expected mainly in the 60s.

LONG TERM . Models prog an embedded short wave quickly followed by a long wave trough to track across the region Wed night and Thu. As a result, a surface trough is progged to develop just offshore from the coast. This feature is forecast to lift north Thu and Thu night, with weak surface high pressure continuing across S TX and maintaining below to near normal temperatures. Sufficient moisture over the coastal waters and across the northeastern CWA Thu night will lead to isolated showers as the surface trough lifts north.

The upper trough will shift east of the area by Friday leading to a northwest flow aloft bringing a drier airmass across S TX. Surface winds become onshore over the weekend which will combine with mostly sunny skies and lead to above normal temps and increasing low level moisture. This could lead to foggy nights/morning this weekend. Both GFS and ECMWF bring another system across the region Mon/Tue. The GFS is slightly faster but both models prog the associated cold front to move across S TX sometime Monday and both show precip with this next system along with breezy north winds and cooler temps behind the frontal boundary by Tue.

MARINE . Northerly winds will increase this morning as a strong cold front moves through the area. Gale force wind gusts are likely over open waters late morning and through the afternoon with Small Craft Advisory conditions in the bays with gusts to near gale force. Winds will gradually diminish tonight with a moderate northerly wind on Wednesday. Northeast winds will diminish further Wednesday night to weak to moderate levels, then become light by Thursday and Thursday night. A surface trough is expected to lift north across the northwest gulf on Thursday and Thursday night, bringing the possibility of isolated showers and will maintain a light offshore flow through Friday. Light onshore flow will return Saturday, becoming weak to moderate by Saturday night.

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.
