Aviation
Isolated to scattered showers west of a k0f2-klzz line should
diminish 04-06z. Isolated to scattered showers that developed
east of a kgyi-kf46-klwy line dissipated shortly after 00z. None
of this activity is expected to affect the metroplex or waco taf
sites.

Expect mostlyVFR conditions at the metroplex TAF sites through
06z Tuesday but will have to keep an eye out for possible MVFR
ceilings 13-16z Monday. At this time have just left sct030 and
will wait for some new model data to decide whether to include a
tempo for MVFR. Southeast to south southeast winds around 10 knots
will prevail through the forecast period.

At waco, expect MVFR ceilings to spread into the area 10-12z
with an improvement toVFR ceilings around 16z.

showers and a few thunderstorms across the concho valley and big
country will continue to encounter much more stable air as they
move east into western north texas. We still can't rule out a few
showers through mid evening. Any rain that does fall should be
light.

Another area of showers and isolated thunderstorms will approach
the southern zones late this afternoon. This activity will also
struggle as it moves into the forecast area but a few showers
should hold together long enough to produce some sprinkles light
rain through sunset.

The remainder of north and central texas will remain hot and humid
through the evening with scattered high clouds. Low level
moisture will be slung northward overnight by a 30 knot low level
jet, resulting in areas of stratus toward sunrise.

Long term issued 321 pm cdt Sun sep 24 2017
a deep upper trough currently centered across the great basin
will slowly weaken through Tuesday, but the trough axis will
remain nearly stationary. This pattern will send several pieces of
energy northeast across west texas and into the central plains.

Since a continuous feed of low and mid level moisture will be
present, numerous showers and thunderstorms will accompany any of
these impulses, but they will be confined to generally the
western zones.

The upper trough will begin to morph into two distinct troughs by
Tuesday night with the northern system moving east across the
northern plains and the southern trough deepening over the desert
southwest. This will allow a cold front to slide into the
northwest sections of north texas. Large scale lift will also
increase as the upper flow becomes more diffluent, so better
rain storm chances are expected Wednesday through Thursday. We
will keep the highest pops across the western zones where large
scale ascent will be the best. Unfortunately, the eastern zones
may see little if any rain with this system.

The upper trough is progged to weaken and lift northward into the
central rockies Friday while the cold front slides into south
texas. We will maintain some chance pops across the southwest
zones through Friday night with very little chance for rain
elsewhere due to the push of drier air from the northeast.

Weak ridging aloft and dry air in the low levels will keep rain
chances low Saturday and Sunday.

A gradual cooling trend is expected through the week due to
increasing cloud cover and the arrival of the cold front. However,
the eastern zones will still see highs in the 90s through at least
mid week.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
