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/ /Through Tuesday Night/
Convective activity is waning as of 6 PM due to loss of heating. Remnant showers and thunderstorms near the I-35 corridor should dissipate entirely over the next couple of hours, with a tranquil overnight period. By early Tuesday morning, some elevated showers may move towards North Texas from Oklahoma, but most of this activity is expected to be on a downward trend by the time it arrives. Have only included some silent 10% PoPs in the forecast for now.
Otherwise, the next chance for rainfall in the CWA should be across the south/southeast tomorrow afternoon near a old stalled frontal boundary, which basically will just consist of a wind shift axis. Convergence along this feature may be sufficient for convective development as the atmosphere destabilizes diurnally. This would consist of isolated single- or multi-cell convection with minimal strong/severe threat outside of downburst winds.
We'll see another mid-level moisture plume move into North Texas again Tuesday night within northwest flow aloft. With greater moisture content and stronger ascent present, there should be a greater chance for measurable rainfall by early Wednesday morning, especially across the northeastern quadrant of the forecast area. We'll maintain some 20-40% PoPs during this time period, although the higher chances may not arrive until after daybreak Wednesday.
LONG TERM. /Issued 215 PM CDT Mon Aug 3 2020/ /Wednesday through Monday/
A semi-active northwest flow aloft pattern will continue through mid-week across the Southern Plains. A lingering frontal zone will be in place across central Oklahoma draped southeastward into our CWA by early Wednesday. Ongoing showers and thunderstorms in Oklahoma overnight Tuesday night should tend to slide in our general direction through early Wednesday. A mid level disturbance will spread into North Texas early Wednesday morning providing additional ascent along the frontal boundary. This activity should primarily be elevated on the "cool" side of the boundary and should weaken as they spread into North Texas given a downward trend in instability. We'll have PoPs at 20-40% through the first half of Wednesday mainly in our north and northeast counties.
After Wednesday, stronger mid level ridging will build eastward into the Plains keeping rain chances low and allowing temperatures to climb. We'll have some very low storm chances late Wednesday night in our northeast counties as the lingering front will slowly move northward as it becomes more diffuse.
Thursday through early next week, ridging will dominate our weather with the center of the mid level high just to our west. Temperatures will warm back to seasonal norms in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees with little chance for rainfall.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /00z TAFs/
VFR will prevail through the TAF period. Convection is currently ongoing just southwest of the DFW area TAF sites. This activity has produced a northeastward-moving outflow boundary which may result in a brief SW wind shift at a few of the airports in the next hour or two. Otherwise, a NE wind will prevail. Meanwhile, a batch of decaying convection is rolling through Central Texas, with some lingering rain possible at Waco over the next hour. This briefly resulted in a west wind shift there as well. All activity is expected to come to an end around sunset.
Later tonight, isolated elevated showers are expected to move southward out of Oklahoma, although much of this activity should remain well NE of the TAF sites. Dry weather with an ENE wind should persist through much of Tuesday before greater rain chances arrive late Tuesday night.

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.
