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 Fort Worth TX 551 AM CDT Fri Sep 18 2020
SHORT TERM. /NEW/ Update: No significant changes were made to the previous short term forecast issuance. As mentioned in the recent discussion, there is a very small chance for a diurnally-driven shower or two to develop this afternoon, but coverage would be less than 10%. This potential remains omitted from the worded forecast. Otherwise, it should be a rather pleasant start to the weekend as less humid air begins filtering into the region later today.
Previous Discussion: /Through Friday Night/
Fairly tranquil weather will prevail heading into the weekend with temperatures near or slightly below normal. We'll maintain deep northeasterly flow through the column with a slow-moving upper trough axis now positioned east of the forecast area. This pattern will result in the advection of noticeably drier air over the next 24-36 hours, and surface dewpoints should fall into the 50s by daybreak Saturday. Before this can occur, however, a decent amount of low-level moisture will still be present this afternoon, and fairly widespread diurnal cumulus should be able to develop. If any of these thermals end up overachieving, they could result in a brief rain shower as far north as I-20. However, that potential is quite low and PoPs will be less than 10%. Afterwards, the arrival of that drier air will cause quick clearing of low clouds, and will allow for cooler low temps on Friday night.
LONG TERM. /Issued 308 AM CDT Fri Sep 18 2020/ /Saturday through Next Week/
A slightly cooler and drier airmass will have just begun filtering in from the northeast at the start of the period following the passage of a subtle back door front. Dewpoints will fall into the 50s during the day Saturday with afternoon temperatures topping mainly in the 80-85 degree range. Meanwhile, a strengthening ridge aloft should keep a lid on any convection, making for an overall pleasant weekend across the region. Things may be different along the Texas coast late in the weekend, where banding precipitation associated with the tropical system in the Gulf will be a good possibility by Sunday. Much of our local forecast may actually depend on the future track of the system, of which a great deal of uncertainty exists beyond the first couple of days.
It is fairly evident that anticyclonic flow around the ridge centered over North Texas will force the system to turn west on Saturday, gradually nearing the mid or lower Texas coast Sunday or Sunday night. Beyond then, model variations in the upper level pattern produce a painfully broad range of possibilities.
Regardless of its official path, model blends are indicating a decent possibility that the system will be at least large enough to allow for some outer rain bands to reach Central Texas. The main effect this will have on this forecast package will be an increase in clouds and POPs and inversely a decrease in daytime temperatures for areas south of the I-20 corridor for Monday- Tuesday. Beyond then, the forecast will lean hard on climatology while we await better (hopefully) model consistency and a clearer picture of what the future holds for what is currently Tropical Depression 22.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /12z TAFs/
VFR will prevail through the period with northeast winds around 10 kts or less. Some diurnal cumulus around 5-6 kft will be present today, but skies will become mostly clear tonight.
