Area radars show bands of light snow over the edwards plateau to the
big bend. Latest hrrr shows these bands moving across our area
overnight into early Tuesday morning. Have updated the forecasts, to
include snow. Due to warm surfaces and strong winds, expect no
accumulations at this time. Should bands increase in intensity, then
light accumulations may be possible. No other updates needed at this

no significant changes from the ongoing tafs. The austin and san
antonio airports have MVFR ceilings and this will continue through
the overnight. The ceiling at drt isVFR and will remain that way
through the entire period. The ceilings at austin and san antonio
will increase toVFR within a couple of hours of sunrise. North
winds will continue at 15 to 20 kts with gusts to 30 through Tuesday
afternoon. Skies should become mostly clear by late afternoon or

forecast for this evening into Tuesday morning is on track.
Temperatures have dropped already to the 32 degrees mark over some
spots across the hill country. This trend is expected to continue
overnight over areas along and west of interstate 35 and north of
highway 90 through Tuesday morning. A freeze warning is in effect
for the areas mentioned above through 10 am Tuesday. Breezy northerly
winds of 15 to 25 mph will help temperatures to feel (wind chill
factor) in the teens across the hill country and low to mid 20s rest
of south central texas Tuesday morning. Highs will range from the
lower 40s to lower 50s areawide on Tuesday.
Another but areawide freeze is expected across south central texas
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Light winds and clear skies
will help temperatures to drop into the low to mid 20s across the
hill country and mid to upper 20s elsewhere.

short term (tonight through Tuesday night)...
the cold front has pushed south through the CWA and has left behind
breezy northerly winds. Wind speeds remain around 15-25 mph with
higher gusts. All sites are below wind advisory criteria and should
remain that way through the evening. Light rain drizzle continues to
slowly end from west to east as drier air begins to filter into the
region. All activity should end by the beginning of the the tonight|
period and will show a dry forecast for the short-term forecast.
Cloud cover will likely hold on for most areas tonight which will
help with temperatures somewhat. However, areas within the current
freeze warning are expected to reach 32 degrees or lower tonight and
see no reasons to make any changes to the freeze warning.
For tomorrow, skies should finally clear but temperatures will only
get into the lower to upper 40s with continued north winds around
10-20 mph continuing the cold air advection. Winds will begin to
diminish tomorrow night, and the clear skies, light winds, and very
dry air will allow for near optimal radiational cooling conditions.
Lows will likely be in the 20s for the entire cwa. Will need another
freeze warning for the counties that do not see a freeze tonight, and
this will likely be issued by tomorrow morning. It is not a frequent
occurrence that our office can end its initial freeze warning
program in one initial event, but this looks to be the case.
Long term (Wednesday through Monday)...
dry weather will continue through the beginning of the long-term
forecast. Another freeze will be likely for most of the area
Wednesday night after highs Wednesday in the 50s. A slow warming
trend will continue through the weekend before the next front looks
to arrive around Sunday. Models have come in a bit wetter with this
front and will introduce a 20 pop for the western half of the area
Sunday. Models continue to show lingering rain chances into Monday
but will hold off on multiple days of pops until there is more
consistency in the medium-range guidance. If this trend continues,
pops will need to be expanded and increase across the area for the
end of the long-term portion of the forecast.

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.
