Moderate onshore flow subsides later tonight as high pressure builds into the region, resulting in lighter winds and lower seas over the next several days. With this typical summertime onshore flow pattern, the development of diurnally driven showers and Thunderstorms along with some brief gusty winds is possible in the morning hours although no major impacts are anticipated.

area forecast discussion
national weather service corpus christi tx
416 pm cdt Mon aug 19 2019

Short term (tonight through Tuesday night)
The upper ridge is expected to remain quasi-stationary over the
scntrl CONUS tx during the period (nam gfs ECMWF deterministic
output.) the greater moisture just offshore (per surface to 850mb
cira lpw) may enter the coastal bend Tuesday. The NAM and gfs
predict coastal bend pwat values near to slightly above normal
Tuesday. Although the deterministic hrrr NAM predict near zero cin
values over the ern CWA overnight, will retain noctural isolated
convection offshore based on persistence. Anticipate isolated
convection over much of the coastal plains coastal bend Tuesday
(sufficient moisture GFS ensemble mean QPF support convection, yet
with the upper ridge as limiting factor.) maximum heat index
values may remain below 110f over the sern CWA Tuesday.

Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
The mid to upper level ridge axis will continue to be north of the
area over north texas on Wednesday, then gradually weaken and shift
to the northwest over the southern rockies by the weekend. Adequate
moisture will remain over the gulf waters into the mid-coast region
to provide isolated convection on Wednesday. A weak tropical wave
over the bay of campeche on Wednesday will move northwest into the
southwestern gulf of mexico on Thursday. Gfs ECMWF show the tropical
wave weakening as it reaches the lower texas coast by Friday. But
moisture depth will steadily improve Thursday through the weekend
with scattered convection expected over the coastal waters into the
coastal plains Friday into the weekend. Differences show up between
the medium range models during this period with the deterministic
ecmwf latching onto a mid level low over the northwest gulf of
mexico south of louisiana Friday that slowly drifts north toward
louisiana by Sunday. If this occurs, this would keep the bulk of the
higher moisture east of the area and rain chances may not be as good
as advertised. Reluctant to make major changes to the pop forecast
off of one model run. Both models depict a mid level short wave
trough over the northwest mexican coast Friday in advance of the
potential tropical system moving northwest off the southern mexican
coast. The models show this feature moving across northern mexico
over the weekend while the tropical system moves toward southern
baja california. This short wave trough could be approaching south
texas on Monday and interact with moisture over the region to
provide a chance of showers or thunderstorms.

Marine
Recent swell period at buoy 42020 increased to 8 seconds.

Applying this condition and wind to the expert system indicates a
moderate risk of rip currents this afternoon evening (moderate
risk for today currently in the srf.) recent wavewatch output
suggests that swell periods may fall to 7 seconds tonight, yet
reach 8 seconds again Tuesday, which may extend the moderate rip
current risk.

A weak to moderate onshore flow is expected to persist from
tonight into the weekend. Increasing moisture from a weakening
tropical wave will contribute to scattered showers over the
coastal waters Thursday through Saturday.

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.
