Marine Weather and Tides
8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX 1042 PM CST Fri Nov 27 2020
AVIATION. MVFR stratus is in place at the I35 sites and should move in at DRT later tonight. Ceilings are expected to lower further into IFR categories as well before sunrise. Some light rain can be seen on radar south of SAT and west of AUS. Will begin SSF with VCSH but hold off for the rest of the sites until 8-10z when more widespread rain will move into the area. Periods of rain will then last through much of the day and into the early evening hours. Ceilings may lower to near 400 feet and visibility to 1 mile during the heavier periods. Rainfall will end from west to east in the evening hours with ceilings slowly improving as well tomorrow night.

UPDATE . Updated the evening and overnight forecast to account for current trends. Lowered PoPs in the evening hours outside of the Coastal Plains as a decent break in activity should continue. Closer to morning, expect coverage of activity to increase across the western and southern areas of the CWA before spreading across the area. Latest forecast shows these trends.

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Saturday Night) .
A cold front is moving through South Central Texas this afternoon. It stretched from Giddings to San Antonio to Dryden. Showers and isolated thunderstorms have developed ahead of the front. A mid to upper level low is over the AZ/NM border. The front should be down to our border by the start of this period. Most of the precipitation associated with the front will be out of our CWA. The next round of precipitation will come with the upper low. This feature will move into West Texas tonight and across the Panhandle Saturday. This will produce showers and thunderstorms tonight and Saturday. PW values will increase to 1.5 to 2.0 inches across most of the region. This moist airmass will feed convection and locally heavy rain will be possible. The deepest moisture will be over our southeastern counties and this will be where we expect the highest rainfall totals. Rainfall totals from tonight through Saturday night will range from 0.5 in. over the Rio Grande Plains to near 3 in. over the Coastal Plains. There will be some locally higher amounts. Although the antecedent conditions are very dry, this amount of rain in this short time may produce some minor flooding especially in the San Antonio and Austin metro areas. Saturday night the upper low will move into central OK and the rain over our CWA will end from west to east. Most showers Saturday night will be over the eastern half of the CWA.
Cooler air behind the cold front will bring low temperatures about 10 degrees cooler Saturday morning and another 10 degrees cooler Sunday morning. The combination of cold air advection with cloudy skies and rain will keep highs Saturday about 15 degrees cooler than today.
LONG TERM (Sunday through Friday) .
Upper level low pressure system over North Texas and Oklahoma and the strengthening surface low just off the Louisiana Gulf coast advances eastward Sunday and into early next week. Drier air will continue to infiltrate south-central Texas in the wake of this system, which will be reinforced by the push of a secondary cold front across the region late Sunday as a tailing shortwave pivots across the south-central plains behind the main upper low.
Strong surface high pressure will position over the region behind this secondary cold front, yielding to continued below average temperatures into next week. Moderate north winds behind the cold front overnight Sunday night into Monday will limit radiational cooling but a few locations across the Hill Country could fall to below freezing. The coldest temperatures this week are expected overnight Monday into Tuesday morning where light winds and clear skies will promote strong radiational cooling with temperatures expected to fall below freezing for the majority of the CWA. Lows look to drop into the mid 20s for some locales. Temperatures do modify slightly for Tuesday afternoon but it will remain cool and below normal.
The global model guidance then differ for the mid to late week in regards to the upper level pattern and the next potential for rainfall. The GFS/CMC model guidance indicate a more progressive solution with a trough digging from out of the Pacific Northwest before evolving into an upper low, as additional shortwave energy coming out of Canada feeds into the system, across the central Plains. Whereas the ECMWF is slower with the initial trough and results in a cutoff low across the Desert Southwest. The upper low then digs southeastward into Mexico and west Texas as the secondary shortwave energy moves out of Canada. The ECMWF solution would favor surface low formation further to the south and west of the GFS/CMC solution along with the favoring of better rain chances across Texas, in association with the next front. The GFS/CMC solutions also advance a cold front across the region by late week but trend drier given the position of the parent surface low further to the north. Overall, below average temperatures remain with cold starts each morning followed by cool afternoon conditions. The rainfall forecast will include a chance for showers, perhaps a small chance of a thunderstorm, for now as indicated by the model blend.

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.
