Vfr conditions are expected to prevail at the TAF sites through
06z Tuesday as an upper level ridge maintains its grip on the
weather across north and central texas. South flow will persist
through the forecast period with southeast winds around 10 knots
veering around to the south overnight and then backing around
to the southeast by 20z Monday.
Short term issued 351 pm cdt Sun aug 20 2017
a hot but slightly less humid day is underway this afternoon.
Temperatures have climbed into the mid and upper 90s, but
dewpoints have mixed into the 60s across most of the area which
has helped hold heat index values below 105. Drier air can be
seen working into our western counties while slightly higher
moisture content remains across the eastern 2 3rds of the area.
Cumulus development has been relatively unimpressive thus far
with practically no ascent present, and as a result, only a very
low potential for a couple showers exists. Have maintained some 10
pops through this evening across our eastern zones within the
area of better moisture. Otherwise, a warm and dry summer night is
expected with lows in the mid 70s to near 80 degrees.
Long term issued 351 pm cdt Sun aug 20 2017
an upper level ridge will start to weaken on Tuesday but will
keep us hot and mostly rain-free through the day Tuesday. The
good news is that the weather across north and central texas will
be nice for viewing Monday's solar eclipse with mostly sunny
skies expected area wide. There will be low chances of showers and
thunderstorms Monday afternoon east of a bonham to corsicana to
temple line and on Tuesday afternoon southeast of a temple to
palestine line. Highs will be in the 90s both days with heat index|
values in the upper 90s to 108 degrees.
As a shortwave moves down the northern and central plains in the
northwesterly flow aloft, a cold front will slide down the plains
on Tuesday. This front will approach the red river Tuesday night.
Thunderstorms chances will spread southeastward during the
evening through the overnight hours. A few strong to severe
thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday night and some locally
heavy rain will also be possible.
We will have below seasonal normal highs for the rest of the week
thanks to the increased cloud cover and chances of showers and
thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid 80s north to upper 90s
south Wednesday, mid 80s to lower 90s Thursday and Friday.
Some drier air looks like it will work its way in from the
northeast Thursday and Friday bringing lower rain chances to our
northeastern zones Thursday night and Friday. Another decent
shortwave is expected to approach late Saturday into Sunday
bringing better chances of showers and thunderstorms for next
Saturday night and Sunday.

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 L-36.com. 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 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.
