a deepening surface low over central kansas this evening is
resulting in a tight pressure gradient and strong southerly winds
across north texas. This system will continue to move east through
Saturday morning with low level winds gradually veering to the
southwest. A cold front will move through the region during the
mid morning hours with a wind shift to the northwest. Winds will
initially be around 310 320 degrees and increase to 23g34kt which
will introduce some crosswind on the N S runways at dfw. This wind
direction should continue to veer to a more northerly direction
later in the day minimizing this impact. Otherwise,VFR conditions
will prevail with northerly winds diminishing Saturday evening.

At waco, there will likely be an intrusion of MVFR CIGS later
tonight, although veering winds to the southwest should tend to
push these clouds off to the northeast. We'll keep MVFR CIGS in
through the morning hours before the front clears things out
during the late morning.

the low-level troughing in the lee of the rockies is near its
maximum intensity. It will soon dislodge and surge south as a cold
front tonight. This will limit the extent that the surface layer
decouples, maintaining breezy conditions. Dry westerly flow at
850mb will keep a shallow cap in place. Beneath the inversion, a
nocturnal jet may approach 50kts at 2-3kft agl. As this intense
moisture flux is squeezed within this thin layer, a stratus deck
will re-establish itself. It still appears that the westerly
component within the cloud-bearing layer will keep the stratus
confined to central and east texas, keeping the northwestern half
of the CWA (including dallas fort worth and sherman denison) free
of low clouds. In our southeastern zones, where the layer may
become supersaturated, there could be some spits of rain, but the
layer should be too thin to support showers with measurable
rainfall.

Saturday through Friday
a strong cold front will sweep across the region on Saturday
bringing strong north winds and dropping temperatures to the
region. A wind advisory has been issued for all but our far south
and southeast counties. The wind advisory starts at 7 am for all
included counties in north and central texas, but the front likely
won't reach the southern portions of the advisory until after
midday. Breezy southwest winds will occur across central texas
ahead of the front, but the strongest winds are not expected
until the front arrives in the afternoon. In the advisory area,
sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph will be
possible. Outside the advisory, winds will still be strong but
slightly below criteria. Wind speeds will diminish Saturday
evening and Sunday night as the surface high slides across the
region.

Falling temperatures are expected behind the front on Saturday,
but locations from cameron to hearne to centerville may warm to
near 80 degrees before the front arrives around mid-afternoon.

Ahead of the front, some light rain or sprinkles may also occur in
the morning hours along and southeast of a cameron to athens
line. With the strong winds behind the front, apparent
temperatures will feel slightly lower than the actual temperature.

With clearing skies and light winds Saturday night, overnight
lows will drop into the 30s and lower 40s with some locations near
freezing in our northwest and western counties. Sunday will be a
chilly day with highs in the lower to mid 60s, and then overnight
lows will fall into the 30s and lower 40s again Sunday night.

Temperatures will experience a slow warm up Monday and Tuesday,
but then another front arrives Tuesday night. Moisture return
looks meager ahead of the Tuesday night front, but have kept a
slight chance for rain in central texas Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Temperatures will once again slowly rebound before another front
next weekend. Overall, temperatures are expected to remain near
and slightly below normal for this time of year.

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.
