Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX 708 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020

DISCUSSION. Heat index values have fallen below advisory criteria early this evening. Canceled the Heat Advisory early. No other changes were made to the current forecast.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 648 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020/

DISCUSSION . See Aviation section for 00Z TAFs

AVIATION . No changes to the persistent pattern over south Texas with the upper level ridge axis just north of the region and very dry air mass in place. VFR conditions will be prevalent through the period except for a brief period around daybreak from 09-13Z over the inland coastal plains. Shallow moist layer could lead to IFR ceilings/MVFR vsbys in fog at ALI/VCT early Tuesday morning. Wind speeds will be slightly higher during the afternoon over the coastal plains as the thermal/pressure gradient will be slightly stronger. Wind gusts from 24-28 knots possible in the afternoon with strongest gusts in the southern Coastal Bend.

PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 357 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday night) .

A mid/upper level high pressure currently over northwestern Texas will move into northern Texas by tomorrow night. With the ridge in place to our north, and limited moisture (PWATs less than 1.4 inches) rain is not expected through tomorrow night. Minimum temperatures will remain mild tonight and tomorrow night, while tomorrows max temperature will remain warm to hot. Heat indices could reach 111 degrees across the Coastal Plains tomorrow which could warrant another heat advisory with the rest of the area below 110 degrees.

LONG TERM (Wednesday through Monday) .

Deterministic runs and GFS ensemble mean suggest that an upper inverted trough of low pressure will move westward across the ERN/CTNRL Gulf of Mexico Wednesday/Thursday, then across the CWA/MSA Friday/Saturday, Near normal PWAT values are predicted for Friday/ Saturday over the CWA. Anticipate isolated convection Friday/Saturday mainly over the NERN CWA. Although the upper ridge is expected to build again over the region Sunday/Monday, a slight increase in PWAT values to above normal Sunday/Monday over the CWA/MSA (ECMWF/GFS deterministic runs) may result in additional isolated convection over the ERN CWA.

MARINE .

A moderate to strong onshore flow this afternoon will subside to more moderate levels by tonight and persist through tomorrow night. Seas are expected to be 3 to 4 across the near and offshore waters with the bays being choppy to occasionally rough. SCEC conditions are expected tonight after 6 PM with brief SCA conditions possible across the southern bays, through 1 AM tonight. SCEC conditions will return tomorrow afternoon through tomorrow night for the local waters, including all the bays and waterways. Weak to moderate onshore flow expected during the Wednesday through Monday period. Increasing moisture followed a westward moving inverted upper trough, may contribute to isolated convection Monday.

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.
