in the wake of last night's cold front, temperatures this
afternoon are noticeably cooler than yesterday, with most
locations in the middle to upper 50s, close to normal for mid
january. Per latest water vapor imagery, the upper trough
responsible for the windy weather yesterday continues to progress
toward the mississippi valley, leaving west texas and southeast
new mexico under dry, northwesterly flow aloft. A surface trough
is progged to develop in the vicinity of the texas new mexico
state line on Sunday, resulting in a quick return to southwesterly
surface flow. The associated downslope warming will yield a quick
rebound to above normal temperatures Sunday, with highs in the
60s to around 70 degrees.

The next upper trough to affect the region will dive southeastward
out of the pacific northwest Sunday night and deepen over the
great basin, resulting in a downstream transition to southwesterly
flow aloft. Monday looks to be another very warm day across the
area, and the warmest day of the forecast, with highs in the 70s
for most, and 80s possible through portions of the pecos and rio
grande valleys. As the aforementioned upper trough nears the
region, breezy to windy conditions are expected to develop once
again, with high winds possible in the guadalupe mountains Monday
afternoon into Monday night. The trough will pass to the north of
the region Monday night and send a cold front through the area
early Tuesday, yielding a cool down to near normal temperatures
in the 50s to lower 60s across most of the area for Tuesday
afternoon. Thereafter, a persistent high amplitude pattern looks
to set up, with a ridge over the west coast, and a trough to the
east, maintaining northwesterly flow over southeast new mexico and
west texas. Thus, dry conditions will continue, with a series of
cold fronts maintaining near to below normal temperatures through
the end of next week.

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.
