DISCUSSION.

12Z aviation discussion included below.

AVIATION.

Barring occasional low level wind shear in the next hour or so mainly from ALI-CRP-VCT due to a 40+ knot low level jet, aviation hazards will be nil today with VFR prevailing. After midnight, some low clouds are likely at the eastern terminals with MVFR ceilings emerging thereafter.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 346 AM CST Wed Jan 29 2020/

SHORT TERM (Today through Thursday) .

Deep and dry NW flow this morning will trend more moist beginning late tonight and especially through the day on Thursday as cool high pressure retreats northeast. As pressure falls focus to our west tomorrow in advance of a respectable upper trough approaching far West TX, models favor stratus expanding westward over much of the CWA making for a very cool day thanks to steady NE surface winds. Blended guidance looks a bit too mild in this pattern, so highs tomorrow were edged more in sync with the cooler MOS numbers.

Precip-wise, most model soundings tonight and tomorrow are very lackluster with any saturation of 1000 feet thick or more anywhere throughout the column. Although isentropic ascent will be in its infancy for much of Thu well downstream of the upper trough, a coastal trough should focus better convergence (mainly over the waters) for some shallow showers throughout the day. Considered removing inland rain chances altogether tomorrow, but left some mention given support from a few high res models and neighboring offices.

LONG TERM (Thursday Night through Tuesday) .

Rain chances will increase Thursday night through early Friday morning as a weak coastal trough develops along the Texas coast ahead of the next cold front. Instability remains limited so will maintain activity as showers through the period. The frontal boundary and mid-level trough will move east over the region mid-day Friday with drier air ending rain chances from west to east through Friday afternoon. Cool conditions are expected Friday in the 60s, with comfortable and dry conditions over the weekend in the 70s. Overnight lows will be noticeably cooler in the 40s to low 50s.

Temperatures will warm through early next week as onshore flow redevelops Sunday. Moisture will quickly return ahead of the next cold front as strong onshore flow develops over the waters Monday. Sufficient moisture should support isolated to possible scattered showers mainly across the coastal region Monday/Tuesday ahead of the front that is currently expected to push through Tuesday/Tuesday night.

MARINE .

Strong offshore flow this morning with SCA conditions will decline to moderate levels this afternoon, before turning northeast tonight and continuing through Thursday. Small Craft Exercise Caution thresholds are possible at times Thursday afternoon. Isolated showers should develop late tonight and increase to scattered through the day on Thursday as moisture improves ahead of an upper disturbance. Scattered to numerous showers will continue through early Friday. Moderate to strong offshore winds with a cold front will bring drier conditions throughout Friday afternoon, ending rain chances. Small Craft Advisory conditions are possible by Thursday night into Friday. Weak to moderate offshore winds on Saturday will become onshore by late Sunday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
