Short term
Through tonight
visible satellite imagery shows a well defined mid level
circulation over southwest kansas with extensive cloudiness
through the northern plains and a trailing area of showers and
thunderstorms across the ozarks and into east texas. A few
lingering showers persist across our far eastern counties but
these should continue eastward over the next hour or so.

It is much more pleasant behind the pacific front dryline with
temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s and dewpoints in the
30s and 40s. Southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph will diminish later
this evening and become more southerly.

Despite the fantastic weather across most of the area this
afternoon, the bulk of the low level moisture will be pooled just
to our south and east tonight. A strengthening low level jet
overnight will allow for a rapid northward transport of this
moisture in the form of extensive low cloud cover. Skies should
become overcast from south to north prior to sunrise south of the
metroplex with clouds surging across the remainder of the area
early Wednesday morning. Overnight lows will drop into the lower
60s across the northwest with mid upper 60s elsewhere. No
additional precipitation is expected tonight.

Long term
Wednesday through next week
while low level moisture will stream northward over the next
several days, large scale ascent will be lacking. As a result,
only low rain storm chances are expected. It will be humid and
very warm (hot for some people) with temperatures in the upper 80s
and 90s along with dewpoints in the 70s.

Low level moisture will surge north and westward on Wednesday
morning as the pacific front that that resulted in rain and
storms retreats. There could be some patchy fog drizzle on
Wednesday morning, but the low level wind field may be too strong
to facilitate widespread dense fog. Morning stratus will dissipate
through the day and will allow temperatures to climb into the 80s
to even near 90 degrees. A small zone of slightly focused ascent
may develop northwest of the d fw metroplex along the pacific
front on Wednesday afternoon. I cannot rule out a shower or storm
within the slightly confluent regime... Mainly near and north of a
comanche to mineral wells to sherman denison line. Instability
and shear would support a strong to possibly severe storm
northwest of the aformentioned line, but the risk for storms is
very conditional. We'll monitor this threat during the overnight
hours.

The end of the work week continues to feature low rain storm
chances as the dryline remains active across the panhandle. Storms
may attempt to make a run at our area late Thursday and into
Friday, but this potential remains low given the veering and
weakening LLJ and increasing nocturnal inhibition across north
texas. We will have keep tabs on upstream radar trends as there
will be a decent amount of instability across the area ahead of
any complex.

As it stands now, the weekend into early next week will remain dry
as no real upper support exists for rain chances. Highs each day
will climb into the upper 80s and low 90s with overnight
temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

18z tafs
most of the showers and thunderstorms have moved to the east of
the major airports this afternoon andVFR will prevail through the
remainder of the day and most of the evening. The main concerns
through the afternoon will be the potential for some gusty
southwest winds, although we'll generally keep these below 30 kt.

Any gusty winds should be short lived with winds diminishing by
sunset.

Southerly flow will strengthen overnight and a surge of moisture
should begin to spread northward well after midnight. A large area
of MVFR CIGS will likely spread into waco by 11z and through the
metroplex by 13-14z. Low clouds should linger into early afternoon
before CIGS begin to scatter and lift. Any precipitation through
tomorrow afternoon should remain well to the northwest of the
major airports.

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.
