light winds below 10 kt should persist through the TAF period.

Wind direction slowly veering to the east southeast late tonight
through mid-day Wednesday, as the surface ridge shifts to the
east. Increasing mid upper clouds on Wednesday, but no impacts are
expected. A few showers will be possible during the
afternoon evening, with the highest likelihood at kact. However,
coverage should be too low to include at any sites through their
respective TAF periods.

Update issued 1036 am cst Tue nov 20 2018
hello north and central texas -- this is joey picca checking in
with my first update as a forecaster at the office. I'm looking
forward to serving you as a lead forecaster here at fwd. As for
today, forecast appears to be on track, with pleasant conditions
continuing this afternoon.

Short term issued 330 am cst Tue nov 20 2018
today and tonight
quiet and pleasant weather will prevail as a surface high
translates across oklahoma and into arkansas. Skies will generally
remain clear, although some high clouds will arrive from the west
later tonight. With a full day of sunshine, highs will reach the
mid 50s to near 60 degrees across the region. The light winds and
mostly clear skies tonight will allow for another night of
excellent radiational cooling and lows will bottom out in the low
30s in the traditionally cooler spots with mid to upper 30s
elsewhere.

Long term issued 330 am cst Tue nov 20 2018
Wednesday through Monday
by Wednesday morning we'll be watching a fast moving disturbance
tracking eastward beneath ridging over the western u.S. This
shortwave will quickly spread into west texas during the morning
hours. Surface high pressure will be centered over arkansas with
low level flow remaining generally out of the east across our
region. This will limit the amount of moisture that can return
ahead of the shortwave trough and will likely be the main
inhibitor to a more widespread rainfall event. That being said,
the shortwave itself will track right over central texas with
strong forcing for ascent spreading over the region from midday
into early afternoon. Scattered showers will likely develop across
parts of central texas and move northeast into the evening. We'll
keep pops between 20-40% mainly south of i-20.

This system will move by and leave us dry for thanksgiving with
the surface high moving to the east and southerly flow returning.

Temperatures will climb back into the low to mid 60s with some
passing clouds. A stronger disturbance will swing through the
plains on Friday, and similar to the previous, will be constrained
by limited moisture. Models have come into better agreement with
the track of this disturbance, generally across oklahoma. Given
that we will have some moisture return, we'll likely see some
showers develop mainly east of i-35 on Friday morning before
quickly ending from west to east during the afternoon. Friday and
Saturday should be the warmest days of the week with highs
climbing into the 70s.

By Sunday, another very strong shortwave will dig into the plains,
potentially bringing snow to parts of oklahoma. A very pronounced
dry slot will likely spread across north and central texas leaving
us precipitation free. Nonetheless, a strong cold front will swing
through the region during this time with temperatures falling back
into the 50s along with gusty northwest winds. There is still
quite a bit of uncertainty with regard to the track of the upper
trough, so we'll continue to monitor this. Otherwise, it looks dry
and cool to start next week.

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.
