See 06z aviation discussion below.

There is a chance of rain and thunderstorms through the period
with the best chances Sunday afternoon. Cnm will have the best
chances so have added a prob30 for there. Outside of
thunderstorms,VFR conditions are expected. Winds will mostly be
light and variable.

Prev discussion... Issued 233 pm cdt Sat jul 22 2017

current radar is showing diurnally driven convection increasing
across the area this afternoon. The mountains are helping storms
develop west of the pecos river, but farther north a weak upper
low over east-central new mexico and an associated shear axis
over the western permian basin is drawing moisture north and
aiding storm development in the lower elevations. There is very
weak steering flow near the shear axis causing slow storm movement
which will be conducive to localized flooding, especially in
urban areas.

This activity will diminish after sunset with more expected
tomorrow and Monday as the upper air pattern persists for a while
longer. Models then show an upper high building south into the
cwa by the middle of next week, increasing subsidence and sending
highs back into the triple digits for many locations. Back in
june, such high temperatures caused strong instability and severe
storms to develop, however upper heights were lower then
weakening the cap. Models are now showing 500mb heights of
594-596dam beginning Tuesday which should do a better job of
inhibiting convection so forecast pops will diminish toward the
end of the forecast.

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.
