Houston, Galveston, Texas City, & Freeport, TX - Daily Port Update  

 

 

Houston // Open to all vessel traffic   <span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif">

 

A reminder as we enter Fall 2018, strong cold fronts as they arrive the Texas Gulf Coast will generally push out 1 – 3 feet of water out of Galveston Bay.  Maximum deep draft vessels cold be delayed transiting the Houston Ship Channel until the cold front and high pressure move off the coast and water moves back into the bay. 

 

 

 

 

Following from Captain Mitchem / Presiding Officer Houston Pilots

 

Removal of 44' draft restriction in the Houston Ship Channel

 

Hello All:

 

The dredging between buoys 11/12 and 9/10 in Bolivar Roads has been completed.

 

The maximum allowable fresh water draft for Houston is 45’ as of August 1, 2018.

 

Sincerely

Captain Mark Mitchem

This will cause a drastic drop in high temperatures from near 90 today to near 60 by Tuesday. Winds will increase Monday morning to 10-15 mph sustained with gusts up to 20-25 mph. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will begin early Monday morning ahead of the front with periods of showers and thunderstorms lasting behind the front through Tuesday. Some of these storms may be strong with gusty winds and small hail. Locally heavy rainfall is possible.   The cold front will be oriented from northeast to southwest. Expect the front to approach College Station by 1-2 AM Monday, Houston by 6-7 AM, and Galveston by 10-11 AM. High temperatures on Monday will be dependent on how quickly the front passes. For areas along the coast, temperatures may reach the low 80s before the front passes, whereas the frontal passage early in the morning for areas inland will limit high temperatures to near 60.   Significantly colder weather will be possible with highs struggling to get out of the 50s near College Station. High temperatures in the Houston area will only warm into the lower 60s. A modest warming trend is expected at the end of the week. Please continue to monitor NOAA Weather Radio for the latest forecasts, as well as any potential watches or warnings.   $$
