A strong upper trough centered over nv and id are expected to bring
heavy showers and thunderstorms to the area this weekend as it
slowly moves east. The upper part of the trough should lift ne
Tuesday and Wednesday but the southern part will continue to dig
along the us mex border with models eventually turning it into a cut
off low before shearing it apart late in the week. As a result the
latest model runs continue a good chance of rain for parts of the
area out most of the coming week.
The unseasonably warm temperatures should return closer to normal
today as abundant clouds and increasing rain results in highs in the
80s today for all but along the rio grande. Similar but slightly
cooler temperatures expected Sunday and Monday as rain chances
remain high. A weak front late Tue early Wed with a north wind will
push highs into the 70s for the rest of the week. A south wind not
expected to return until early Saturday. Lows in the 50s expected
behind the front.
Looking at several days with high rain chances for the area. Had
some showers and storms last evening over the west but as of early
morning only a few remain over western eddy county. First look at
qpf eta is slower and farther west today with the heavy rain not
making it into eddy county until late afternoon. It does bring
another round of potentially heavy rain through eddy county late
tonight. By early Sunday the heavy rain shifts farther east and
south across tx counties closer to the rio grande... Presidio...
brewster... Pecos. This precip moves NE into permian basin Sunday
and then additional precip Sunday night and Monday expected for
permian basin. High pops continue Tuesday and Wednesday as models
develop precip along and behind the front. The combination of good
low level moisture... High pw... And potential for slow moving or
training storms will create the possibility of heavy rain that could
result in flash flooding. Therefore have issued a flash flood watch
for this afternoon and tonight for eddy... Lea... And culberson
counties. This watch may be extended in time or expanded in coverage.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
