What's New / NOTES
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

vfr conditions prevail at the major airports this morning but
there are some low clouds streaming northward just west of i-35.

These may briefly impact waco over the next few hours and we'll
continue to monitor their northward progression toward the
metroplex. At this time, we'll leaveVFR conditions prevailing
through the period. Southeast winds will continue at around 10
mph. There will be an increase in mid and high cloud cover today
as precipitation continues across west texas. No organized areas
of precipitation are expected in north texas today or tonight.

today and tonight
water vapor imagery shows a large upper trough centered over
southern utah this morning. To the east of the circulation, a
large area of height falls associated with stronger forcing for
ascent has spread into west texas and much of the plains.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are ongoing across much of
west texas extending northward through much of the central plains.

As we go through the day today, one of several strong vorticity
maxima embedded in the overall large trough will eject eastward
into the northern plains, taking the strongest forcing for ascent
northward with it. With the overall large trough axis still
positioned over the western u.S. Through tonight though, a
persistent area of lift will be in place across west texas.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will most likely remain well
west of our area today through tonight as the main trough will be
very slow to move eastward. The only impacts that we may see in
north texas would be some increased cloud cover through this
afternoon and tonight from thunderstorms to the west. This may
help keep temperatures down a few degrees from yesterday, but it
will remain warm across the region. Highs today will be in the
lower 90s areawide.

Monday onward
the main focus of the extended forecast continues to be rain
chances through the middle of the week and cooler temperatures
through the 5-7 day time frame. While these will be some of the
highest rain chances of the month of september, the most
widespread rain is expected to remain west of our forecast area.

Locations to the west of i-35 are likely to pick up at least a
small amount of rainfall through the next 5 days, but areas to the
east could remain mostly dry. Meager lapse rates instability will
mean very little potential for severe storms throughout this time
despite the increased shear. Some heavy rainfall in our western
counties will be the main concern.

The deep trough positioned across the western half of the country
will continue generating widespread showers and thunderstorms
across west tx to begin the week. Most of this activity is
expected to remain west of the forecast area through Monday,
although a few showers or weakening storms could move into our
westernmost counties by late afternoon or evening. The strongest
ascent is expected to remain west of the area through Tuesday as
well, and as a result, so will the highest rain chances. However,
as the trough's associated cold front slowly approaches north tx
on Tuesday afternoon and evening, there will at least be some
more favorable lift across our west and northwest zones. In
addition, increasing cloud cover, especially through the mid
levels, should help hold temperatures a few degrees cooler on
Tuesday.

Some higher rain chances should occur on Wednesday west of i-35
as the front finally becomes draped through north tx. However,
upper ridging should be occurring across southeast tx as the upper
trough retreats westward slightly. This will continue to keep our
area deprived of dynamic ascent aloft, with really the only lift
available being from weak convergence along the front. This should
limit the eastward extent of precipitation throughout this time
frame. As the front slowly sinks southward into central tx on
Thursday and Friday, the higher rain chances will follow. Still,
the stronger synoptic ascent will be displaced to the west and
southwest of the forecast area.

A batch of cooler and drier air should work into the area on
Friday and Saturday as a secondary cold front pushes through the
plains. This will largely bring rain chances to an end with
considerably drier air finally arriving. While temperatures will
have been cooler primarily due to increased cloud cover throughout
the week, they will be lower next weekend due to the cooler air
behind this secondary front. This setup could deliver a few very
pleasant early fall days with temperatures near or below normal
along with low humidity.

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.
