Vfr through the period as dry air remains in place for at least a
little longer and west to northwest flow remains in the mid to upper
levels. Low level winds are now southerly so will see a slow return
of moisture. Some minor cirrus coming overhead today and tonight
with no impact. Winds have switched around to south at the surface with
only some minor adjustments to direction to Sat and drt overnight.
Speeds should remain at or below 10 kt through overnight. Another
south wind day with mostly clear skies on Friday.

surface ridging along the texas coast will continue to slide east
today, allowing for light southerly winds to resume by this
afternoon. Have made minor updates to the forecast to increase
temperatures a degree or two for the afternoon based on observational
trends and increase sky cover as an upper level speed max
translating east out of mexico results in periods of cirrus.

short term (today through Friday)...
light freeze ongoing along and north of the escarpment
and along and north of highway 71. Temperatures are expected to be
above the freezing mark between 7 and 8 am all areas. High
temperatures reaching the low 60s most locations and mid 60s along
the rio grande this afternoon. The reasoning behind this warm up is
due to surface winds turning to the south and southwest ahead of a
mid level short-wave trough nearly stationary across the southern
Not expecting freezing temperatures across the area with the return
of moisture and southerly winds tonight, however, some places across
the hill country could drop to the mid 30s for few hours overnight.
Dry weather continues across the area through Friday with highs in
the mid to upper 60s.
Long term (Friday night through Wednesday)...
zonal flow will keep south central texas dry through the first part
of the upcoming weekend. By late Saturday into Sunday, an upper level
disturbance is expected to move from the central great basin into the
southern plains. This feature will send a cold front across south
central texas Sunday for chances for rain across all areas and
especially south of highway 90 and southern rio grande plains.
Chances for rain continue for most of next week as several short-wave
disturbances move across the area. There is plenty of uncertainty for
the weather pattern for the latter part of the week as another cold
front pushes across south central texas on Thursday. Temperatures
behind the cold front should stay well above the freezing mark.

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.
