What's New / NOTES
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

A minor shrtwv trof in the SW flow aloft across the trans pecos
has resulted in -shra -tsra early this am, GFS looks to be
handling it the best. While the cold front and dryline merging
across the pb are resulting in a few shra tsra. Meanwhile a post-
frontal isallobaric high of around 4-5mb 3hr is pushing the
front rapidly south thru the area, probably to the rio grande by
15z. Initially windy very windy conditions in wake of the front
will be driven by tight thermal mslp gradients followed by mixing
of stronger 85h winds late morning. Brief high winds thru gdp
pass are likely this am. Low clouds will likely hold thru the
morning with breaks this afternoon as the frontal depth increases
to around 7h by 21z, where mstr is thinner. MOS #'s are quite
disparate with met much cooler than mav, largely because of cloud
cover. We will trend forecast cooler, but not as cool as met.

Despite nam12 developing precip on E slopes of mtns we will
minimize pops today, best chances will be across the far S where
low level mstr is best and elevated instability is present. More
of the same wrt pops Mon am with low level mstr pushed back to
the nw. Surface ridging will still maintain a presence Mon pm and
the best instability mstr will be in alignment with elevated heat
sources. There are some model indications of nocturnal storms
coming out of mx into presidio brewster co early Tue am, MOS is
in agreement. Tue pm the atmosphere is expected to recover as the
diurnal heating cycle drives scattered pops across the trans pecos.

Wed has been and continues to be the the most favored day for
widespread rain as a slow moving mid level trof drifts into the
area. A surface boundary (at last initially will be lacking) and
storms will be favored to form in the mtns and in what will
probably be a weak shear environment and outflow dominated storms
will favor the proliferation of additional shra tsra. A few
strong severe storms along with the possibility of heavy rain, per
pw of +1 to 2 standard deviations. Likely pops are already in the
forecast and warranted, even that far out. Said trof drifts NE on
thur, but the primary upper low will still be to the W and chance
pops are a reasonable scenario thur fri. Drier air does slowly
try to work back into the W Sat with model discrepancy for
Sunday. High temps will mostly remain below normal thru the
extended forecast.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with 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 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.
