wv imagery shows an upper-lvl ridge extending from new mexico east
thru texas and the gulf coast states out into the atlantic, bordered
to the west by a trough just off the socal coast. Closer to home,
convective temps are slow to be reached, W considerably less CU on
vis satellite than 24 hours ago. Return flow has kept abundant
moisture in place, W dewpoints in the mid 60s as far west as
kats kprs. Given residual boundaries from yesterday's convection
over the permian basin, at least an isolated chance of convection
will persist this afternoon east of the pecos. Further west,
chances look better in upslope flow over the higher terrain in the
vicinity of a sfc trough just west of the cwa, coincident W a rich,
low-lvl theta-e ridge. The trough off the west coast is not forecast
to begin moving east until midweek, but to instead send minor
shortwaves up thru mexico into nm far west texas over the weekend.

W monsoonal moisture in place, models hint at potentially high qpf
over the west during the next 72 hrs or so, especially sat-sun as a
vort MAX moves thru. Higher QPF looks far enough west to rule out a
ffa, but this may change if the sfc trough theta-e ridge shifts east
over the next day or so. For now, we'll just emphasize heavy rain
potential in the hwo.

As mentioned above, the trough will remain in place thru the weekend
and into midweek, so best chances for convection will remain out
west. Wednesday, the trough opens and moves onshore and begins
flattening the ridge, aided by a trough digging out of canada. The
canadian trough then drops a cold front into the region midweek,
w long-term models (generally) bringing it into the area Wednesday
night. Thus, chances in the east begin increasing midweek or so.

Temperatures should bounce around just above normal thru midweek,
then drop below normal as the ridge breaks down, thicknesses
decrease, and the cold front arrives.

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.
