Marine Weather and Tides
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.

AVIATION. /06Z TAFS/ Based on the lastest HRRR and Tx Tech WRF output, the periods of light drizzle look to be more uniform along the I-35 terminals than they appeared to be in the late afternoon runs. Thus will show a period of 1/4 mile vsbys for all three stations. Light west to northwest winds developing near or just before daybreak would suggest that the lowest vsbys may shy away from the daylight hours with gradual vsby and cig improvements from 12Z to 15Z. At Drt, the low clouds have arrived but timing has been slower than projected. Thus am inclined to show a smaller window than preveiously, on the period of 1/2 mile vsbys. Thus all sites are expected to go VFR at 15Z in this update.
PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 242 PM CST Sat Jan 25 2020/
SHORT TERM (Tonight through Sunday Night) . As expected, cloud cover has been increasing across the area from west to east this morning and early afternoon as the southern stream shortwave trough continues to move through northern Mexico. High temperatures have exceeded expectations a bit this afternoon, with highs now on track to reach the mid to upper 60s for most locations. A few isolated showers are possible this afternoon across southern portions of the region. Shower chances (and possibly a thunderstorm or two) will increase later this evening and into the early overnight period as isentropic ascent increases, mainly for locations along and east of the Interstate 35 corridor. QPF should remain below a quarter inch for most locations, with higher amounts possible for far eastern portions of South Central Texas (Lee, Fayette, Lavaca, DeWitt Counties). Areas of fog and drizzle will also be likely late tonight and into early Sunday morning, with some dense fog possible.
The trough axis and attendant weak Pacific cold front will move through the region by mid to late Sunday morning and drier air will filter into the region in its wake. This will allow for clearing from northwest to southeast, and by Sunday afternoon clear skies should prevail with highs in the low to mid 70s and a light north northwest breeze. Clear skies will continue through Sunday night, but some residual moisture will keep overnight lows a couple degrees above normal (lows in the mid 40s for most locations).
LONG TERM (Monday through Saturday) . Zonal flow is forecast for Monday ahead of the next upper level system to affect the area. Expect plenty of sunshine for most of the day and high temperatures in the 70s. By late Monday afternoon into the evening, increased moisture and the set up of a low level jet ahead of the next Pacific front and associated upper level disturbance may result in showers across the Rio Grande and Edwards Plateau Monday night. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected overnight into Tuesday morning as the Pacific front moves across the area. Rainfall amounts could range from one quarter to three quarter of an inch for the most parts. Weather conditions begin to improve on Tuesday morning from west to east with some lingering showers and an isolated thunder across the far east of South Central Texas mid to late afternoon.
Cool and pleasant weather conditions are anticipated for Wednesday with highs in the mid 60s and on track with climate values for this time of the year.
Chances for rain return late Thursday into Friday as another Pacific front and upper level disturbance moves over the region. At this time, the medium-range models are trying to get a handle on it with the GFS being the faster while the ECMWF solution comes about 6 hours behind (based on main trough axis). Also, the GFS is less aggressive with QPF while the ECMWF brings the potential for more rainfall accumulations(one quarter to an inch more over some spots).
Overall, this system is going to help some areas to get rainfall amounts ranging from one quarter to an inch with isolated spots getting higher amounts just to help the drought some (mainly east of I-35).
Dry and a warming trends is expected for the upcoming weekend as an upper level ridge builds across the area.

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.
