What's New / NOTES
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.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect the
metroplex TAF sites this morning (through 16-17z). Afterwards,
expect the activity to shift to the south of the i-20 corridor.

Ceilings should be mostly MVFR this morning with an improvement
toVFR by 20z. Winds were variable at TAF issuance time but
should become north to northeast at 12 to 15 knots this morning as
the approaching batch of showers and thunderstorms help push the
front through the region. Winds will come around to the east by
mid afternoon (20z). Some MVFR ceilings may spread back into the
metroplex by 11z Sunday.

Showers and thunderstorms at waco were on-going at TAF issuance
time. Unfortunately, there was a failure at the kact ASOS unit but
manual observations should be starting shortly. There are ongoing
showers and thunderstorms and with the next batch across north
texas heading their way, only a brief respite is expected. Have
kept tsra or vcts in through 18z with shra in through 20z. Mostly
MVFR ceilings are expected to hold in through 20z but
ceilings visibilities may lower to ifr in the rain storms.VFR
conditions are expected after 20z and they should continue
through the evening. Some MVFR ceilings are expected to return by
08z Sunday.


Discussion issued 422 am cdt Sat jun 24 2017
after the hottest day of the year, a cold front moved into north
texas. Late Friday evening, thunderstorms developed along the
slowly advancing boundary, expanding in areal coverage during the
early morning hours. The activity is now largely outflow driven,
peeling up the rich nocturnal air mass across central and east
texas. With ample instability in the mid-levels, downstream
parcels should allow the complex to maintain its intensity past
daybreak. This will likely be inadequate for severe winds, but
a few gusts may still reach or exceed 40 mph. With extraordinary
precipitation efficiency, the primary concern will be flooding
issues that result from heavy rainfall.

Winds have returned to the south the wake of the storms, evidence
that the front is still lagging behind. It may show little
inclination to move south until the next round of precipitation
arrives later this morning. Moisture convergence along the 850mb
front resulted in widespread thunderstorm development around
midnight from the texas panhandle into western oklahoma. While
elevated, these cells have managed to maintain their discrete
nature, lengthening the duration of individual updrafts. Within a
northwest-southeast oriented axis of elevated instability, these
updrafts have proven capable of half-inch hail. The northwest flow
from 500mb up to the top of the troposphere is helping to guide
this activity into the richer moisture to the southeast. This
multi-cell complex will be entering an area that was overturned
just a few hours earlier, and it will become increasingly
separated from the 850mb front. While this will result in a
gradual decrease in intensity during the daylight hours this
morning, reducing the hail threat within north texas, the complex
will still be capable of additional heavy rainfall. Flooding will
continue to be a concern this morning, particularly where these
downpours coincide with significant rainfall earlier this morning.

The complex will dissipate around midday, and any redevelopment
this afternoon would likely be confined to central and east texas
where outflow frontal forcing may linger. The longer the morning
complex survives, the less likely there will be any additional
activity late in the day. For much of the region, this afternoon
will be unseasonably cool with a northerly breeze. While
postfrontal dew points may remain in the 60s, lingering cloud
cover and wet ground should keep temperatures well below normal.

Even if the mercury reaches the low 80s in the dallas fort worth
metroplex, it will be the coolest daytime temperatures this late
in june since rainy 2004. For some locations, today's high
temperatures will be more than 20 degrees cooler than Friday's.

The widespread convection will maintain a weakness in the mid-
level flow that could allow for renewed daytime shower and
thunderstorm development Sunday and Monday, particularly with
adequate sunshine. The better chances will be across the west and
south. Thereafter, ridging aloft may nose enough into the region
to limit activity during much of the upcoming workweek. However,
the northwest gulf will remain in a col between the western ridge
and a dirtier ridge over florida and the greater antilles. As a
result, inclement weather may dominate the texas coast. During the
afternoon hours, the northwest extent of this activity may be
within our southeast zones.

Late in the week, the tail end of a trough axis, associated with
a polar low tracking through the canadian prairies, may swing past
our meridian. Although its lift may remain to our north, its
passage could allow another summertime cold front to approach next
weekend. While this may imply that the summer heat will be kept at
bay, subtropical ridging and above normal temperatures look like
they will prevail during the first week of july.

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.
