.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday night)...

Quiet weather continues tonight with mostly clear skies and
generally light winds. Overnight lows will be in the 50s in most
locations with low 60s along the Rio Grande and low/mid 60s along
the immediate coast.

The reinforcing cold front is still on track to move through South
Texas on Tuesday morning. The main impact from this front will be
the increase in northerly winds, especially over the Gulf Waters.
No precipitation is expected with this front. It will be a nice
day tomorrow with little in the way of cloud cover and low humidity
values. Highs will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s across
the area.

Good radiational cooling conditions will occur Tuesday night into
Wednesday morning. Light northerly winds and clear skies will
allow temperatures to fall into the mid/upper 40s for most inland
locations and 50s along the Rio Grande and Coastal Bend.

&&

.MARINE...

Strong northerly winds will occur behind a cold front on Tuesday.
Winds will increase to SCA levels over the southern bays, nearshore
and offshore Gulf Waters. Seas will also increase to 7 feet over
the offshore waters. Conditions should drop below SCA levels for
the southern bays by midday and over the nearshore waters during
the afternoon. Strong winds are expected over the offshore Gulf
Waters through Wednesday morning.

&&

.LONG TERM (Wednesday through Monday)...

Dry with seasonable temps are expected through much of the extended.
A quick warmup is expected by Thu as onshore flow returns ahead of
another stronger cold front. This cold front is expected to move
through S TX by Friday morning. There is sufficient moisture over
the coastal waters to result in iso -SHRA`s as the front pushes off
the coast Fri into Fri night. Superblend output had a slight chc
over the Coastal Bend, however the moisture does not look sufficient
for convection. Will mostly see increasing clouds on Fri. Much
cooler and drier conditions filter into S TX for the weekend with
highs only in the upper 60s to around 70 on Saturday and 40`s for
lows. Sun will be a tad warmer with return flow, but will continue
to be dry and pleasant.
