Short term
Today and tonight
good cold and dry air advection persists today following
yesterday's cold front, which stretched along the texas coast
early this morning. North winds of 10 to 15 mph will continue
through much of the day before slackening this evening as the
surface ridge axis settles in across the region. Today's cold air
advection will do its best to offset solar heating, keeping high
temperatures mainly in the 50s. Light winds, clear skies and dry
air will create ideal radiative cooling conditions tonight with
low temperatures in the 30s expected area-wide (the exception
being the heart of dallas where the urban heat island effect could
keep low temps in the lower 40s). Patchy frost will be possible
in rural locations, and a few spots may even drop to 32 by sunrise


Long term
Thanksgiving through early next week
the holiday will start off chilly with lows in the 30s with
light and variable winds, as a broad high pressure ridge continues
sliding through the area. By afternoon, the surface ridge will
move southeast away from the area with modest southeast winds
10-15 mph returning. Highs will range from the 60s east to the 70s
west. Southeast surface winds will stay thanksgiving night into
black Friday morning, as lee side pressure falls deepen off the
central high plains. Dry north flow aloft in between a deep upper
trough over the eastern CONUS and a stout upper ridge over the
western CONUS will continue into black Friday. Outside of the
occasional streak of mid-high cloudiness, any low level moisture
return will be minimal as the western gulf of mexico remains
scoured by recent cold fronts. No precipitation expected through
the day black Friday, as temperatures modify back into the 70s
areawide. Another cold front will appear on the horizon and enter
our far northwest counties just before sunrise Saturday morning.

This front will be dry like its last few predecessors with a
milder night in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

The cold front will pass through the area during the day Saturday
under plentiful sunshine, as upper ridging continues to increase
across the region. Deeper low level cold advection through 850mb
looks to lag behind the surface front by 6-12 hours, with the
strongest thermal advection remaining north and east of the area
with a shortwave moving across the missouri and mississippi
valleys. Highs will be slightly cooler, but still in the lower-
mid 70s for most areas. After a slightly colder morning between
35-45 degrees on Sunday, the stronger cold advection will be
realized during the day Sunday, despite a return to southeasterly
surface winds around 10 knots. Highs in the mid 60s to the lower
70s across central texas will be the rule Sunday afternoon, as
many return to the area from their holiday adventures. The strong
upper ridge will continue to keep the area rain-free Sunday night,
with breezy south winds 10-15 mph helping to hold lows Monday
morning up between 45 and 50 degrees.

Gusty southerly winds continue into the early half of next week,
as a strong upper trough develops across the central rockies on
Monday. With the continental shelf just off the texas coast still
well scoured from several surface cold frontal passages, any
moisture return will modified and not rich. Mild, breezy, and dry
conditions will persist, as the dampening upper ridge keeps a lid
on our sensible weather. It does appear the deep latitudinal
rockies upper trough will draw a cold front into the area Tuesday
night and Wednesday, as it lifts across the heartland and toward
the mississippi valley great lakes later next week. Have continued
the low chances for showers across the eastern half of the area
where slightly higher moisture content will be available.

Otherwise, instability appears pretty meager with richer low level
dew points remaining relegated closer to the gulf coast and lower
mississippi valley. Highs in the 70s Monday and Tuesday will cool
into the 50s 60s south on Wednesday in wake of the cold front.


Aviation issued 1124 pm cst Tue nov 21 2017
vfr conditions will prevail at the TAF sites through 12z Thursday.

persist through 21z Wednesday with speeds decreasing to around 10
knots for the rest of the afternoon into the early evening hours.

Winds will become light and variable after 03z Thursday as high
pressure moves across the region. Winds will back around to the
southwest by 09z Thursday.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 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.
