319 am cdt Fri may 24 2019
Today and tonight
north and central texas will remain between an amplified ridge to
the east and a deep trough across the western half of the nation.
A tight surface pressure gradient and a constant influx of gulf
moisture will result in breezy, humid and very warm conditions
with afternoon highs generally in the upper 80s to lower 90s and
lows in the 70s.
Large scale subsidence and a lack of any surface boundaries should
limit thunderstorm development today and tonight. However, an
isolated shower or storm can't be completely ruled out, especially
across the western zones where subsidence will be the weakest.
Saturday through Thursday
the overall weather pattern will remain largely unchanged through
the holiday weekend, although the upper ridge is progged to nudge
a bit farther west which should keep even isolated thunderstorm
chances out of the forecast. The slight shift in the upper ridge
should also increase afternoon high temperatures a degree or two
with most locations reaching near or just above 90 degrees. It
will remain breezy due to a deep lee trough across the central
high plains. Although wind speeds will not be strong enough to
warrant a wind advisory, area lakes will remain choppy, especially
during the afternoon and early evening hours Saturday through
Thunderstorm chances will return Tuesday when a strong upper
trough moves across the central high plains and a dryline moves in
from the west. The best large scale forcing will remain well to
the north and a cap should remain in place, therefore, we will
keep pops low for now (20-30 percent). There may be some severe
potential with any storm that develops but it is much to early to
Thunderstorm chances will continue on Wednesday with the arrival
of a cold front. The passage of the front will also bring slightly
cooler and drier air, but afternoon highs will still manage to
warm into the 80s. Overnight lows should be cooler overall,
ranging from the mid 60s in the north to the lower 70s in the
We will linger some slight chance pops in the forecast for
Thursday since the front will likely stall, but there is a good|
chance that it will be just south of the cwa.
Looking ahead - the upper ridge is progged to become a bit more
established across the lone star state as we head into the first
days of june, resulting in very warm and rain free weather.
Aviation issued 1122 pm cdt Thu may 23 2019
a stronger low level jet has developed across the region compared
to last night, and thus, moisture return has been quick to arrive.
MVFR is on the heels of kact and will likely continue through the
rest of the night. For the dallas fort worth metroplex, a
scattered cloud layer at fl045 is ongoing, but the expectation is
that MVFR will continue to move northward and also affect all the
north texas airports.
Of note, winds have also remained fairly gusty even though
daytime heating has been lost and mixing of the lower atmosphere
has decreased. This can be attributed to the stronger low level
jet stream that is now blowing at 50-55 mph at just 2500 feet
above the ground. A slight decoupling of the atmosphere is still
expected as surface temperatures gradually cool, and it should
temporarily put an end to the gusty winds through mid-morning.
As the Sun comes up on Friday, low-level mixing will gradually
increase ceiling heights much like the last several days. Gusty
winds will also develop, especially in the afternoon, with some
locations reaching 25-30 mph. Orientation of the winds will remain
southerly causing no major crosswind issues.

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.
