discussion...

very windy conditions are on tap Thursday for southeast new mexico
and much of west texas. The rest of the forecast is looking
quiescent in comparison.

A southern stream upper trough will traverse the region today with
copious amounts of mid and high clouds spreading overhead. There
could be a few showers, but lift is not strong and expect most
locations over southwest texas will not see measurable rainfall.

Of much more consequence will be the evolution of an upper trough
dropping southeastward over the central southern rockies tonight,
then cutting off over the southern texas panhandle Thursday morning
before ending up over north central texas Thursday evening. The
upper low will strengthen as it moves over west texas due to strong
mid and upper level winds diving down the backside of it. This will
drive a strong cold front south through the region. The combination
of a tight surface pressure gradient, and mentioned strong mid level
winds will result in at least 25-35 mph sustained northwesterly
winds over much of the area, if not higher. This will especially be
so due to a chance of rain or snow as the upper low moves overhead.

Precipitation amounts do not look very high, and we are not
expecting any accumulation of snow due to surface temperatures
generally staying above freezing, but the precipitation could
enhance wind gusts over the permian basin and western low rolling
plains where the best chance of precipitation exists. Have decided
to add the permian basin to the high wind watch already in effect
for the northwest half of the forecast area. As it stands now,
northwest to north winds will increase over the mountains and
southeast new mexico Wednesday night, then spread east and
southeastward over the rest of the forecast area Thursday. Since
the stronger winds could last through much of Thursday afternoon,
have extended the watch through Thursday afternoon.

It will be much cooler Thursday behind the front, and with the very
windy conditions, it will feel even colder. After winds subside and
we see a chilly start to the day Friday, temperatures will rebound
to near normal levels Friday afternoon, although it will continue to
be on the breezy side. From Saturday through Monday, another weak
shortwave trough, if not two, will traverse the region. There will
not be much chance for precipitation with either, but temperatures
will remain slightly above normal as a result. Thereafter, models
are in disagreement with another upper trough next Tuesday
Wednesday.

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.
