Discussion As of 2:45 pm cdt Tuesday... It looks like we will
get four... Four letter words weather for the next several days.
We will get some "rain"... "cool" temps... "wind"... And maybe some
"dust" to go along with the wind.
Early this evening we can get some convection firing up along a
weak moisture gradient in the eastern pb low rolling plains per
the hi-res hrrr and rap13. Kmaf radar is also showing a few echoes
over the southern mountains. There is the possibility of
strong severe storms in the northeast cwa... Model soundings for
snyder indc a pretty pronounced inverted v sounding indicating the
possibility of strong severe winds with any convection. A
shortwave moving thru the plains will send a strong cold front
thru the CWA tonight. Models are indc strong gap winds thru gdp
tonight Wed morning. MOS guidance usually over forecasts the winds
so knocked them down a bit. Have also issued a wind advisory for
the SE new mexico plains for the same time period... But it looks
like a marginal event. Regardless... Pilots should avoid flying
over the guadalupe mountains tonight and Wednesday morning due to
extreme hazardous flying conditions.
Wednesday will be significantly cooler with temps 20-25 degrees
below normal. There is a chance of showers with a slight chc of
thunder tomorrow... Best chances in the east. Drier and warmer
weather is in store for the area on Thursday.
For the extended tended to broadbrush the forecast with slight chc
pops Friday into early next week..With temps a little cooler than|
normal... Warming to a little above normal early next week. The gfs
is wetter with a deeper and faster trof moving thru the western
us... With a deep southerly flow over the southern plains
early middle portions of next week. The ECMWF is a little slower.
Depending how deep the trof is we might be able to get some low
level return flow from the gulf the middle of next week... But
that's a long way off.

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.
