The latest aviation discussion is included below.

North winds will decrease after 24 00z withVFR conditions
prevailing tonight and Wednesday.

Prev discussion issued 233 pm cdt Tue may 23 2017
the cold front that moved through the region this morning has
successfully resulted in very unseasonably cool temperatures and
increased cloud cover for the day. As of 2:30pm cdt, most
locations were still in the 60s. The rain did not end up
developing like we previously thought it would, however areas
across the northeast permian basin may see some light rain
through the afternoon. Otherwise, most areas will remain dry for
the remainder of today. Tonight, expect a bit of drying to occur
as a surface ridge moves over the area. Skies should quickly clear
out this evening and overnight temperatures in the upper 40s to
low 50s will be common across the region.

Temperatures will begin to warm Wednesday as upper ridging builds
east, advecting very warm 850mb temps eastward. Wednesday
temperatures are still expected to be somewhat enjoyable with highs
in the 80s to near 90, but that quickly changes Thursday. 850mb
temps near 30 degrees c over the region and modestly strong west,
downsloping winds at the surface suggest high temperatures will
increase to the upper 90s to near 100 most areas. Highs exceeding
100 is likely for areas along and near the pecos and rio grande
river valleys. The record high temperature at midland intl for may
25th is 105 and at the moment it looks like this record will remain
however the record for may 26th could be in jeopardy as the
record for that date is only 100. Windy, dry and hot conditions
could pose a fire weather problem Thursday and Friday... Please see
the fire weather discussion below for more details.

Saturday may be a few degrees cooler for most areas as the upper
ridge and 850 mb thermal ridge get pushed to the south a bit. Areas
across big bend and rio grande will still see triple digit heat.

Forecast models bring a cold front through the region Sunday
morning, dropping temperatures back to near normal, in the 80s to
low 90s. The air looks to be too dry for widespread precip to
develop with the frontal passage however we may have enough moisture
across SE zones for a few thunderstorms Sunday afternoon evening.

Will continue to see some decent moisture return on Monday with
east southeast winds at the surface persisting through Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a series of upper waves are progged progged to move
overhead which may keep rain chances in the forecast Monday through
mid week along with near or below normal temperatures during this

Fire weather
Fire wx concerns will increase quickly across parts of the trans
pecos and SE nm thur extending into the weekend. Across the SE nm
plains a W wind of 20-25 mph and min rhs near 10 pct are
expected. Meanwhile temps will be around 10 degrees above normal.

There was rain across parts of SE nm yesterday, but fine fuels
will have time to dry out by thur and certainly fri. Erc levels
from swcc keeps ercs within the 50th percentile across the gdp
mtns and less than 50th percentile across the SE nm. For we will
issue a watch for the gdp mtns. By Fri Sat drying could be more
than enough for a watch, if in SE nm and a continuation gdp mtns.

Elsewhere unseasonably heat and dryness are a concern, but
brewster co should be out of the mix for a few days with recent
widespread heavy rain there.

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 L-36.com. 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 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.
