Discussion
Temperatures across southeast texas are currently in the mid to
upper 80s and are expected to continue to rise up to the low to
upper 90s this afternoon. Passing showers are currently moving
north to northeast across the gulf waters and will reach the
coastal regions within the hour. Isolated showers have begun to
develop inland across the chambers and liberty counties, and
additional development can be expected across galveston and
brazoria counties shortly. By late morning and early afternoon,
expect additional showers and thunderstorms developing south of
i-10 and east of i-45, gradually spreading northward by mid to
late afternoon. No significant impacts are expected with this
activity, however, strong showers and thunderstorms will be
capable of producing heavy rainfall, lightning, and brief gusty
winds. With the heavy rainfall, reduced visibility and ponding of
water on roadways is possible. Showers and thunderstorms will
dissipate in the evening, with skies gradually clearing. A light
southerly wind flow will continue across the local region. Only
slight changes were made to the inherited forecast to represent
the current weather and temperature observations.

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.
