Aviation
Earlier severe convection has now moved east of all TAF sites with
just lingering trailing stratiform precip off to the east of kdal
and kact. An earlier meso/wake low near the metroplex and also
near waco appears to be dissolving into the background flow this
hour, with winds more or less uniformly returning to a
southeasterly direction. Winds today will gradually veer ahead of
an approaching cold front with decreasing cloud cover through the
mid-morning hours. Precipitation chances with the incoming front
are much too low to warrant a mention in the tafs, but breezy
west-northwest winds are in store this evening with its passage.

In addition, someVFR cloud cover appears possible as the core of
the parent upper-low passes just to the north. The breezy west-
northwest winds will then continue through the remainder of the
dfw extended taf.

squall line continues to move east through north and central texas
but should be exiting the region by 6 am. This line of storms is
making steady progress east and dewpoints in the 50s are spreading
across the region behind the front. Most models still convect
storms in our far eastern counties this afternoon and will keep
high pops there for now, but the atmosphere may not recover. This
will be the main challenge to monitor and assess today. If storms
do redevelop, they could be severe with a threat for damaging
winds and hail, and possibly a tornado. There remains a low chance
for rain/storms generally along and north of i-20 tonight as the
upper level low crosses the plains. The track of the upper level
low is now farther north than previous days, so the potential for
additional storms tonight looks to be low. A front will move
through the region tonight bringing cooler temperatures. Overnight
lows will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Thursday and Friday will be quiet days. Thursday will be cool
with highs only in the mid 60s to mid 70s. We will quickly warm up
in the upper 70s and upper 80s on Friday as an upper level ridge
moves over the region, and southwest to west flow in the lower to
mid levels of the atmosphere brings warmer temperatures. Another
upper level low will move into new mexico on Friday bringing a
chance for rain to the region this weekend.

Unfortunately the model runs tonight are less consistent with the
track of the upper level low than they have been the past few
days. On Saturday, convection is expected to develop along the
dryline to our west during the afternoon hours. This convection
will likely move into our area Saturday evening and night. Beyond
Saturday night, differences in the models muddle the forecast,
however we do still expect rain and storms to occur. The
uncertainty lies in where the heaviest rain and possible severe
weather concerns may be. The GFS and euro appear to be the closest
in agreement with the heaviest rains still located across our
central texas counties and points east and southeast of there.

Have continued with the highest pops in these areas during the day
on Sunday, and we will continue to assess to the severe threat
and heavy rain/flooding threat.

The weekend rains should end on Monday, if not sooner, and then a
few more days of quiet weather is expected. Some storms may be
possible along another front around the middle of the week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
