Short term
Today and tonight
tranquil conditions are anticipated over the next 24-30 hours as
surface high pressures slides to the east. Temperatures will
moderate in response to the dry airmass and southerly flow across
the area.

After a chilly start to Wednesday, most areas should rebound
nicely into the upper 50s and low 60s with low afternoon humidity.

A few areas may climb into the mid 60s out west. Winds will be
light and variable across most locales through at least noon as
high pressure slides towards east tx. Thereafter, light southerly
winds should be the norm by this evening. High clouds are expected
across far southeastern zones today and into tonight, but they
should be thin enough such that they have little to no impact on
temperatures. Most areas tonight should see warmer conditions as
southerly winds and a slight increase in low level moisture occur.

It'll remain chilly, however, with most areas seeing low
temperatures near or just above "freezing." sheltered low-lying
areas may still fall into the upper 20s, however.

Long term
Thursday through Tuesday
moisture will increase across north and central texas on Thursday
as surface low pressure deepens across the northern and central
plains and a shortwave approaches from the desert southwest. The
increase in moisture will result in mild temperatures with afternoon
highs in the lower and middle 60s.

The increase in moisture will be more noticeable Thursday night
with the return of low clouds. A few showers will also develop as
the shortwave translates across region. Temperatures will be
considerably warmer than the past several nights with lows
generally in the middle 40s.

Thursday night's shortwave will exit the region early Friday
morning and result in brief subsidence. However, a stronger
shortwave will approach from the west through the day and bring a
return of large scale lift and a gradual destabilization of the
air over north and central texas. As a result, scattered showers
and isolated thunderstorms will be possible Friday afternoon and
Friday night with the best precipitation chances generally east of
i-35 where moisture will be most abundant.

The shortwave and associated cold front will move across the
region on Saturday, bringing an increase in shower thunderstorm
chances. A lack of deep moisture and limited instability will
keep rainfall amounts light and limit the threat for severe
storms.

Drier and slightly cooler air will move in Saturday night and
bring an end to the precipitation chances. Temperatures Saturday
night will cool into the 30s across the northwest zones with
mainly lower and middle 40s elsewhere. Highs Sunday will be a bit
cooler but still manage to warm to around 60s under full sun.

A warmup will take place Monday through Tuesday with brief ridging
aloft and a gradual return of low level moisture ahead of another
developing low pressure system in the west. Highs Monday and
Tuesday will be in the lower and middle 60s with lows Monday night
in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Aviation issued 1131 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
high pressure will continue to provide generally quiet aviation
weather across the region. The axis of a surface ridge will slide
over the TAF sites Wednesday morning, with surface winds
eventually coming around to the southeast Wednesday afternoon as
the ridge shifts east of the area. Moisture will be slow to return
however, and at this time it looks like any stratus development
will hold off until well after this forecast cycle.

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.
