Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX 346 PM CDT Sun Jul 12 2020

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Monday night).

Will maintain the current Heat Advisory until expiration (01z Monday), given current/expected conditions. The upper high pressure system is expected to persist over the region during the period. Drier (GFS/ECMWF deterministic PWAT output) and slightly warmer (National Blend/GFS 1000-500mb thickness) conditions are expected over the CWA during the period. Heat Advisory conditions may occur again over much of the CWA Monday, and will again defer to the mid shift to determine what counties to include in the Advisory (mixing of drier air toward the surface Monday afternoon may result in maximum Heat Index values below 110F over the WRN CWA.)

LONG TERM (Tuesday through Sunday).

A mid/upper level high pressure will prevail across North Texas for much of the week. The high pressure will fluctuate in intensity through mid week before and upper level disturbance approaches South Texas. This upper level low pressure and an associated weak mid level short wave will approach South Texas Friday and slowly move across northern Mexico Saturday and Sunday. Due to the limited moisture (PWATs around 1.5 inches in the 50ht percentile) Friday and early Saturday maintained low PoPs with only a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms across the Victoria Crossroads. Models are showing an increase in moisture (PWATs around 2 inches which is about the 75th percentile) for late Saturday and into Sunday which could trigger showers and thunderstorms, mainly across the Victoria Crossroads.

Temperatures are expected to remain hot with temperatures cooling slightly across the area from east to west as the week progresses. SPS and heat advisory conditions will remain possible through Thursday before getting some relief from the heat, relatively speaking, as we head into the weekend. Heat indices next weekend should remain below 109 degrees across only some portions of the CWA.

MARINE.

Weak to moderate onshore flow expected tonight through Monday morning. Moderate onshore flow anticipated Monday afternoon and Monday night owing to deepening surface low pressure over the Southern Plains/west TX. A weak to moderate onshore wind will return Tuesday afternoon and persist throughout the duration of the long term period. Winds should subside Friday to weaker level and remain in place throughout the weekend with winds occasionally reaching moderate strength. Seas will remain 3 to 4 feet across the offshore waters, subsiding to 2 feet Friday evening and continuing through the weekend. SCEC conditions are expected to begin affecting the near and offshore waters and southern bays Tuesday evening and continue through Wednesday evening. Rain chances are not expected until next weekend when isolated showers and thunderstorms could affect the local waters.

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.
