DISCUSSION.

18Z aviation discussion follows.

AVIATION.

Following widespread VFR this afternoon and evening, MVFR stratus and some reduced visbys toward daybreak should target ALI and eventually VCT before quickly resuming VFR after sunrise. Conditions at ALI could dip to IFR at times, but confidence in this remains poor at this time.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 825 AM CDT Thu Aug 13 2020/

DISCUSSION . See Aviation section for 12Z TAFs.

AVIATION . Low cloud/fog satellite imagery shows scattered to broken low clouds over the inland coastal plains from HBV to ALI to BEA to VCT with observations indicating patchy fog in these areas. MVFR vsbys with periodic IFR vsbys/MVFR ceilings will affect ALI and VCT until 14Z. Otherwise, VFR conditions will be prevalent through the period with only few to scattered cumulus over the coastal plains through the rest of the morning into the afternoon. Light south winds this morning will become southeast and become gusty this afternoon over the Coastal Bend. May see reformation of patchy fog over the inland coastal plains late tonight around 09Z providing MVFR vsbys at ALI/VCT.

PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 356 AM CDT Thu Aug 13 2020/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday) .

The mid to upper level ridge will remain over the southern Rockies today through Friday and extend eastward into central and southern Texas. Moisture levels will remain below normal through the period with precipitable water values expected to be below 1.5 inches. Used bias corrected CONSShort model for dewpoint temperatures as readings did not fall as much as the NBM and CONSShort indicated over the past couple of days. Afternoon maximum heat index values will rise above advisory criteria over the inland Coastal Bend today. Issued a Heat Advisory for inland Kleberg/Nueces/San Patricio Counties from 18-22Z today. Expect temperatures will be slightly warmer on Friday. Heat advisory criteria will likely be met across most of the coastal plains Friday afternoon.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday) .

The period begins with a mid/upper level ridging dominating over the region Friday night through Saturday. Mostly dry conditions can be expected during this time frame as the area remains in the eastern periphery of the ridge with subsidence aloft. By Sunday though, rain chances begin to increase as the upper ridge gradually shifts westward into the Desert Southwest in response to the movement of an upper level trough extending southward from the Lower Great Lakes Basin into east Texas. Moisture will slightly increase across the region on Sunday allowing for a few showers/storms to form along the sea breeze. The upper ridge will then continue to retreat westward building over the western CONUS on Monday while the trough extends further south into the northern Gulf. This will send a weak frontal boundary into South Texas Monday into Monday night that will combine with the arrival of deeper moisture to provide a chance for convection to develop over the area through Tuesday. With the unsettle pattern persisting aloft through mid- week, have kept slight to chance PoPs in the forecast.

Warm to hot temperatures can be expected through the weekend into early next week, but temperatures could run a few degrees cooler Tuesday through Wednesday due to the rain. However, afternoon heat index values will continue to range from 105 to 109 daily through next week with values at or above 110 degrees at times, especially during the weekend.

MARINE .

A weak to moderate onshore flow will continue today through the weekend and persist into early next week. Brief moderate onshore winds will occur each afternoon and early evening across the bays and nearshore waters, mainly south of Port Aransas. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible Sunday over the bays and waterways, before expanding to the open waters Monday through Wednesday.

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.
