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.

Cloud cover continues to increase from SW to NE this morning with light showers starting to form ahead of TS Beta. Current temperatures are in the upper 50s to 60s. TS Beta made landfall around 11 PM this evening near the southern end of Matagorda Peninsula. It actually progressed a little farther inland than what guidance originally indicated. It is anticipated that this storm will continue to meander just inland for the next 12 hours or so and then proceed NE along the North Texas coast at which point it will start to weaken to a depression as it approaches the lower MS Valley.
As for today, expect cloud cover to continue increasing from SW to NE. Moisture will continue to stream into the area over the cooler air mass that has been in place across the area leading to weak isentropic lift. Instability still appears to be minimal resulting in light rain showers mainly across the SW portion of the CWA. Cloud cover and light rain will keep high temperatures on the cooler side with highs in the low 70s.
TS Beta will is forecast to become a TD by the time it reaches southern MS late Thursday. As such, widespread rain showers and a few thunderstorms will continue to spread northward as tropical moisture advects into the area. The highest rain chances will be Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. Beyond this point, rain will gradually taper off as the remnants of Beta progresses eastward. Overall, 1-2" of rainfall with locally higher amounts are possible across North MS with amounts decreasing northward. WPC keeps portions of the Mid- South in a marginal to slight risk of Excessive Rainfall for Day 2 but given D0-D1 drought classifications across North MS, widespread flooding is not anticipated. Highs Wednesday and Thursday will be in the upper 60s to low 70s and lows in the low 60s.
The remnants of Beta will eventually get swept up in the upper level flow and continue east. For the most part, long- range models keep much of the area 'dry' on Friday. But due to subtle timing differences regarding the upper and low level features did not remove PoPs entirely for Friday. A northern branch trough and developing surface low will dip down from western Canada towards the Ohio Valley on Saturday. This feature will progress eastward and will prolong low- end PoPs through the weekend into early next week. There are still discrepancies in evolution and timing but expect temperatures to be slightly below to near normal during the latter half of the weekend into early next week.

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.
