The latest aviation discussion is included below.
Vfr conditions will prevail today and tonight at all area terminals.
Moisture will return to the region tonight with low clouds possibly
affecting kmaf late. Will not include any mention at this time
since it will be after 28/09z, and kmaf may be the only terminal
Prev discussion /issued 445 am cdt Mon mar 27 2017/
today should be a pleasant day across much of the area before an
upper trough brings some unsettled weather on Tuesday. The trough
will deepen as it swings southeast across the four corners region.
Surface winds will swing around to the southeast and transport
gulf moisture into west texas. A dryline will set up across the
permian basin and be the focus for severe weather. Still some
uncertainty with the set up for this event as morning convection
could effect how the day plays out. Right now, the east/central
permian basin and lower trans pecos will be the most likely to see
storms on Tuesday. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main
threats. There will be chance for a tornado or two given the
parameters in place, especially over the stockton plateau and
lower trans pecos where the vertical and directional shear is
best. West of the dryline will be windy conditions and lower
dewpoints leading to fire weather concerns. See fire weather
discussion below for more details. High winds will be possible
across the guadalupe mountains and above 6000 feet in the davis
mountains as strong upper level jets wrap around the base of the
trough Tuesday and Wednesday.
Storms should move out of the area overnight Tuesday as the
pacific front blasts east. A cold front coming in from the north
will bring gusty north winds and an extra shot of cooler air,
which will keep temperatures in the 60s and 70s for Wednesday.
A gradual warm up expected Thursday and Friday as the trough lifts
northeast. Will see a jump to around 10 degrees above normal on
Friday with temperatures in the 80s.
The progressive pattern continues into the weekend as the next
trough will move ashore and moves across the rockies. Depending|
on the track of this low pressure system, it could bring some rain
and thunderstorm chances back into the forecast. System will also
bring more cold air Saturday and Sunday.
Fire weather discussion...
a cold front will push southwest to the pecos river before stalling
this morning, but minimum rhs will still drop to 10-15 percent
areawide this afternoon as temperatures warm to 5-10 degrees above
normal. Southwest winds over portions of the guadalupe mountains
and SE nm plains will be 15-25 mph sustained this afternoon, and
since isolated critical conditions could occur in the guadalupes,
will issue a fire danger statement for these areas. After poor
recovery west, good recovery east tonight, fire weather concerns
will increase Tuesday as an upper storm system approaches. Will
issue a fire weather watch for locations along and west of a
seminole to fort stockton line. More critical fire weather could
occur Wednesday, but mainly over southwest texas.

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.
