Short term
Today and tonight
north texas will remain on the back side of a slow moving upper
low over the mid mississippi river valley today keeping us in a
persistent northerly flow. Satellite imagery shows an extensive
area of cloud cover over eastern oklahoma associated with rich
moisture in the 925-850 mb layer. Given the flow around the upper
low, some of this cloud cover will likely pivot into north texas
this morning. Some of our red river counties have become overcast
over the last hour and this trend is expected to continue through
the remainder of the morning. Areas along and east of i-35 and
north of i-20 may see several hours of cloud cover this morning
before skies clear this afternoon. It should be a nice day
otherwise with winds generally 10 mph or less and highs in the mid
70s in most locations.

By tonight, weak upper ridging will spread into the region as the
upper low to the east pushes farther away. Winds will become light
under mostly clear skies with overnight lows in the low to mid
50s.

Long term
Tuesday onward
Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week as clear skies prevail
with a return to light east southeast winds. This will be in
advance of a northern stream trough diving southward through the
central plains along with a formidable cold front. Temperatures
will climb into the upper 70s and 80s, with some mid or upper 80s
possible given some pre-frontal warming across our western zones.

Moisture quality ahead of the approaching system will be limited
due to its north-south trajectory, and surface dewpoints are only
expected to be in the 50s across much of the region prior of the
front's arrival. Limited low-level moisture will also mean
limited instability, especially of the surface based variety.

By Tuesday evening, thunderstorms should begin developing along
the cold front north and west of the forecast area. There will
actually be some stronger instability in this area which should
help fuel some stronger storms initially. This convection will be
steered eastward into our forecast area throughout the evening by
mid-level westerlies, although it will encounter rapidly waning
instability the farther east it progresses. As a result, the
potential for any severe storms within our forecast area appears
quite low, but a strong storm or two could encroach on areas
roughly from cisco to bowie prior to weakening. Overnight, the
front will make continued southward progress through north texas,
and an increase in shower activity will occur. A broad area of
rain with some embedded thunderstorms should exist behind the
front as isentropic ascent occurs in conjunction with dynamic
lift from the approaching trough. With meager instability, only
isolated occurrences of thunder are expected into the day
Wednesday. For many areas, the high temperature will occur in the
morning ahead of the front with temperatures falling or holding
steady in the 50s following its passage. We'll keep pops highest
across north texas throughout the day with a bit more uncertainty
in coverage across central texas. Activity should be tapering off
from north to south Wednesday night as the front moves into
southeastern texas.

A dry day will follow on Thursday with temperatures remaining
slightly below normal. A second northern stream disturbance will
tail its predecessor through the central plains Thursday night and
Friday, delivering a second weaker cold front to north texas.

Model runs over the past couple of days had been cutting off and
digging a stronger vort MAX into north texas to accompany the
front which would have resulted in some higher rain chances during
the Friday morning time period. However, latest data suggests the
main energy will remain well northeast of us. Have only carried
low pops across our northeast for the chance of a couple showers
along the front's passage early Friday. Otherwise, this will serve
to knock temperatures down a couple degrees for Friday afternoon.

At this time, the weather looks dry heading into next weekend
with increasing clouds and near-normal temperatures. Longer range
ensembles suggest the development of a deep western us trough by
early next week which would mean a bit more active weather in the
7-10 day time period to begin the month of may.

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.
