few mid hi clouds creep in near the end of the forecast period.

Prev discussion issued 356 am cdt Wed oct 18 2017
discussion... As of 3:45 am cdt Wednesday... Both IR and WV imagery
are showing high mid clouds moving into the western portions of
the CWA ahead of a weak southern stream shortwave.

After a warm and dry day a series of weak southern stream
shortwaves will move across the southern plains and northern
mexico. This will help draw moisture north out of mexico... And
combined with orographics and steep lapse rates will lead to
slight chance of thunderstorms over the guadalupe mtns tonight and
Thursday. With increased cloud cover temps will cool to near
normal on Thursday. The chc slight chc of thunderstorms spreads
east across the pb Thursday night as the nocturnal LLJ ramps up.

A stronger trof will move from the pacific NW northern ca into the
plains on Saturday. The far eastern portions of the CWA could see
some thunderstorms... But the main show will be to the north and
east of the CWA in the area of best dynamics... Instability... And
moisture. Saturday will feature temps 10-15 degrees above normal
with a low level thermal ridge just to the west of the cwa. As
the trof progresses east a cold front will clip the CWA on Sunday
with dry weather and temps a little below normal. Even though
medium range models are not in agreement on Sunday with the
gfs gem models cutting off a low in the ARKLATEX area and the
ecmwf more progressive with the trof... Either solution will have
little bearing on the sensible weather for the cwa.

Next week will be dry with above normal temperatures as a ridge
builds in the western us in response to a deep trof in the
east... Leading to a dry wnw flow aloft.

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.
