An upper level trough is digging southward over the west coast, and
an upper low is over the texas coast. This upper pattern has put the
cwa under north to northeast flow aloft. A surface trough extends
from southeast new mexico to the davis mountains this afternoon.
Surface winds are out of the southwest contributing to downslope
warming. Temperatures today are expected to warm up quite a bit from
yesterday with highs in the 60s and 70s.
The upper trough out west will move further east on Saturday putting
the area under southwest flow aloft. A surface trough will be across
the area with southwest to west surface winds. Temperatures will
further warm up in response to this pattern with highs in the 70s
across most of the CWA on Saturday. The upper trough out west begins
to move over the region on Sunday with the base of the trough moving
over the cwa. This will result in higher winds aloft mixing down to
the surface with possible high winds across much of the area with a
tight pressure gradient in place. A high wind watch is in effect for
the guadalupe mountains beginning Sunday morning and extends along
and west of a line from lamesa to midland to fort stockton to alpine
beginning Sunday afternoon. The watch is set to expire Sunday
evening. These west winds will also bring in a pacific front on
Sunday resulting in temperatures cooling close to normal values with
highs mostly in the 50s and 60s. Surface winds will decrease on
Monday as the upper trough moves further east, but temperatures will
be similar to the previous day. Temperatures fluctuate a little
through next Friday but will mostly stay in the 50s and 60s. Another
upper trough is expected to move over the area beginning next
Friday. No precipitation is expected for the entire forecast
Fire weather concerns are building as fuels have undergone recent
drying and they will have another day of strong drying on Saturday.
This along with above normal temperatures on Saturday will result in
elevated fire weather concerns and a fire danger statement will
likely be needed for most areas. Sunday fire weather concerns do|
increase in response to an anticipated wind storm. Despite the
likelihood of strong winds on Sunday there are a few factors that
are not in alignment and they preclude greater concerns including;
cool temperatures and marginal humidities. So for now we are focused
on the wind which will increase likelihood of initial attack type
fires (possibly a busy day for vfds and urban fd), significant fire
potential is forecast to be in the low to moderate category for
Sunday across the pb.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
