Synopsis Another weather system will pass through the region
bringing gusty winds and cooler temperatures to start the week.
Thereafter, high pressure will result in a warming trend the rest
of the week with temperatures climbing back to near normals.
Discussion Another system digging through the great basin just
north of us will bring gusty winds and cooler temperatures today
and Monday. No rain this far south as the system kicks eastward
into the central and northern plains early in the week.
We'll see a weaker flow the second half of the week as
significant jet activity retreats to higher latitudes. This will
allow a strong broad area of high pressure to spread across
southern texas and northern mexico. By Friday we should be
approaching average temperatures for this time of year (90s).
Main weather concerns in the short-term are fire weather related.
Please see the fire weather section below for details.

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.
