Please see the 00z aviation discussion below.

to be around 12kt or less areawide thereafter. Winds will veer to
the northwest tonight, and then return to the south Saturday

Prev discussion /issued 118 pm cdt Fri mar 24 2017/

the strong upper low that brought the high wind to the area
yesterday is moving across the southern plains today. Still had
some wind on the backside of it as a deep surface low moved across
the panhandle and into ok. Will have brief upper ridging over the
area Saturday before a series of upper troughs moves this way. The
next upper trough will move ashore the west coast Saturday and head
this way reaching nm by early Sunday. Another brief ridge expected
after that one. The next upper trough moves ashore ca on Monday and
develops into a cut off low reaching the 4 corners region by early
Tuesday and moving over west tx by Wednesday.

Still very windy today on backside of upper low... Have a wind
advisory for most of the region with a high wind warning for the
guadalupe mountains... Plan on letting those continue till they
expire at 00z. May become a little windy again on Sunday as another
surface low moves across the panhandle.

After a record setting warm start to the week have cooler temps
today behind the pacific front. A cold front moves through tonight
with lows dropping into the 40s with a few 30s at marfa and tatum.

South wind returns Saturday with highs in the 70s and 80s. Lows
Saturday night in the 40s and 50s with highs Sunday mainly in the
80s. Another front moves through Sunday night with a 3rd front
expected late Wednesday.

Not much rain chances the next few days but will have a chance of
storms returning to the area mainly east Tuesday and Wednesday with
approach of cut off low.

Fire weather...

dry and windy conditions will continue through sunset before winds
diminish and and conditions improve. A cold front will cause winds
to veer from the west to the northwest and north, before decreasing
and settling on a northwesterly direction overnight. Winds will be
light Saturday as high pressure builds into west texas but another
upper low moving into the great plains will increase west winds
again Sunday and could create critical fire weather conditions. At
this time the wind speeds are marginal for red flag criteria so will
hold off on issuing a watch for now.

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.
