Update
We plan on letting the winter storm warning expire at noon since
all measurable winter precipitation has shifted south of the
region. We still anticipate some lingering icy spots on roads
through the night so will issue a special weather statement for
the southern zones.

We will also be working on a hard freeze warning for parts of the
area that will go out with the afternoon package.

Aviation
No aviation weather concerns through Wednesday withVFR and
decreasing northerly winds tonight through Wednesday morning.

Middle and high clouds will continue to wrap around the base of
the departing upper trough through the afternoon. These clouds
will remain generally south of the metroplex TAF sites but
continue over waco through the afternoon. Most of the high clouds
will shift to the south tonight with generally clear skies
overnight Wednesday morning.

Short term issued 318 am cst Tue jan 16 2018
today and tonight
the overall wintry precipitation has been less than expected
across all but the eastern counties. The latest nam, GFS and ecmwf
as well as the high resolution models all indicate that the
significant precipitation has nearly shifted to the east or south
of the forecast area. Have left some 20-50 percent pops through 9
am southeast of a goldthwaite to emory line where some light snow
should continue. Some light snow may linger into late morning
along and southeast of a killeen to palestine line. Some flurries
are possible through sunrise as far west as a sherman to comanche
line where no accumulations are expected. Given this, have had to
make significant changes to the winter weather advisories and
warnings. Have left areas from sulphur springs to waxahachie to
mexia to cameron in the winter storm warning. The northern part of
this warning is mainly based on what has already fallen as
additional amounts will be very light. Additional amounts to the
south should be 1 2 inch or less but with lower criteria there,
will leave the warning in place. For the rest of the old warning
area, have decided to downgrade bell, bosque, hill, coryell, fall,
and mclennan counties to a winter weather weather advisory and
canceled the warning farther west where only flurries are
expected. Will cancel the old winter weather advisory as only
flurries are possible before daybreak. Mostly cloudy skies are
expected to prevail across central texas but clouds elsewhere will
be on the decrease from the north today as drier air continues to
work its way into the region. With strong cold advection,
temperatures will likely remain below freezing area wide. Gusty
northerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with some gusts over 30 mph will
decrease to 10 to 15 mph this afternoon. Wind chill readings this
morning will be in the single digits north to the teens south.

Skies will clear across central texas this evening. Dewpoints will
be in the single digits above and below zero. As an arctic high
settles in, winds will become light northerly. These factors
will allow temperatures to fall into the single digits and teens
area wide. Have left the hard freeze warning as is for now.

Long term issued 318 am cst Tue jan 16 2018
Wednesday through Monday
it will be sunny but still quite cold Wednesday with highs in the
30s. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph will gradually come around to
the southeast as the arctic high starts to slide to our east.

Expect another cold night Wednesday night with lows in the teens
to lower 20s. A shortwave will move across south texas Thursday
through Friday but the best lift and moisture will be well to our
south. There will be low chances of showers southeast of a killeen
to athens line Friday and east of a bonham to cameron line Friday
night and Saturday. As a stronger upper level trough and a cold
front approach Saturday night and Sunday, there should be enough
moisture and instability for some showers and thunderstorms east
of a line from jacksboro to goldthwaite.

It will be sunny but still quite cold Wednesday with highs in the

through Friday but the best lift and moisture will be well to our
south. There will be low chances of showers southeast of a killeen
to athens line Friday and east of a bonham to cameron line Friday
night and Saturday. Gusty southerly winds will develop Saturday
as the pressure gradient tightens ahead of the next upper level
trough. As the upper trough and a cold front approach, there
should be enough moisture and instability for the showers and
thunderstorms Saturday night and Sunday. Drier, slightly cooler
air will filter in behind the front bringing temperatures back to
near seasonal normals.

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.
