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.

SHORT TERM. /NEW/ /Tonight through Tomorrow/
A strong cold front is in the process of moving through the far eastern fringes of the forecast area at this hour with a thin line of showers and thunderstorms along the leading edge of the front. The cold front is attached to an elongating surface low currently centered near Thackerville, OK. The surface low is being stretched southeastward as the southern extent of the cold front races east, well ahead of the low, and starts to wrap the cold air around and into the low. These processes are working to form a weak occlusion across North East Texas this evening. The surface low and its associated fronts will gradually progress southeast through the night, settling into Louisiana around daybreak.
Behind the front . a brisk west to northwest wind has ushered in much colder temperatures to the region. Strong cold air advection combined with a tight pressure gradient is allowing the winds to gust to 30-35 mph primarily west of I-35, warranting the continuation of the Wind Advisory currently issued through noon tomorrow. This forecast still aligns with our current thinking, however, the winds might taper off closer to daybreak than mid afternoon. Any adjustments to the Wind Advisory timing will be left to the midnight crew ATTM.
The shallow cold front has brought a blanket of stratus to the region, which should continue through the night. Forced ascent associated with lingering PV anomalies aloft are tapping into the wrap around low level moisture, developing some light rain showers north of I-20. As the system shifts east through the night, these showers should slowly move east as well. All precip will eventually come to an end tomorrow morning as the enhanced lift also shifts east of the region, putting the area under large scale subsidence aloft. Continued northerly flow in the low levels will keep the shallow cold airmass in place through much of the day tomorrow, with lingering stratus continuing generally west of I-35.
LONG TERM. /Issued 139 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020/ /Thursday onward/
Another cool day expected on Thursday with high temperatures struggling to reach the low 50s across North Texas. Low chances for measurable precipitation on Thursday afternoon and night as a weak shortwave moves across South Texas, and any rain that does fall will be limited to only a few hundredths of an inch. A gradual warmup will occur Friday and through the weekend as a mid level ridge extends into the Southern Plains. This will allow temperatures to rise above normal into the mid to upper 60s Saturday, and low 70s Sunday and Monday driven by warm, dry southwesterly flow and a well mixed boundary layer.
The most uncertainty in the forecast falls on Monday due to the timing of the next strong cold front. EC and GFS deterministic guidance both have rain moving into the eastern portion of the forecast area in southwesterly flow ahead of the next cold front. However at this time, statistical ensemble guidance does not support these two deterministic scenarios, therefore no need to stray from the blended approach for temps or PoPs at this time.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /00Z TAFs/
A cold front has moved through all TAF sites, bringing in MVFR stratus and gusty west to northwest winds up to around 30 kts. The winds will gradually veer to become more northwesterly over the next few hours. The ceilings are generally between 1100-2000 ft AGL, however, areas of IFR ceilings are lingering along the Red River. There is a 30% chance of the IFR ceilings and very light rain showers moving into the northern fringes of D10 including the AFW/DFW/DAL terminals between 04-09Z tonight. The current TAF keeps ceilings over 1000 ft AGL, however this will have to be monitored over the next few hours.
The winds will gradually weaken in speed after daybreak tomorrow, lowering to less than 15 kts by the afternoon. MVFR ceilings are expected to remain in place, however, there is a 30-40% chance of becoming VFR for at least a few hours during peak heating.
Looking ahead . the low level winds aloft are forecast to become easterly tomorrow night, bringing IFR to LIFR conditions to the region. More details on this will come with subsequent updates.

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.
