00 utc TAF cycle
concerns---MVFR ceiling cessation.

Widespread MVFR CIGS continue to blanket north and central texas
terminals and this will likely be the trend through at least the
pre-dawn hours on Tuesday. CIGS should lift above fl020 in the
next 2 to 4 hours withVFR returning by 12 utc Tuesday as drier
air spills southward. Breezy north winds with sustained speeds in
the 18 to 22 knot range along with gusts to near 30 knots appear
probable. These strong wind gusts should subside early Tuesday
with breezy winds continuing through the TAF cycle. There is a low
potential for some very isolated shower activity, mainly across
central texas between 12 and 16 utc Tuesday. It should remain too
dry aloft for any significant precipitation, but it wouldn't
surprise me to see a few reports of either flurries or a few sleet
pellets across central texas. Again... Significant impacts are not
expected.

regional radar imagery shows most of north texas dry at this hour
with only a few lingering areas of mainly light rain across our
far eastern and southeastern counties. There was one little patch
of light reflectivity that moved across montague county over the
last hour and bowie actually reported -sn on its 2 pm observation
with a slight reduction in visibility. Bowie fire department
confirmed a few minutes of flurries in the area. Otherwise, most
areas will remain precipitation free through the night.

Strong isentropic descent will continue through the nighttime
hours which will help erode the lower cloud deck as much drier air
works its way to the surface. Skies should be mostly clear by
early Tuesday morning and it will be quite cold with a brisk north
wind continuing. Temperatures are already near freezing across our
northwest counties and the freezing line will make steady
southward progress through the night. Most areas will be in the
mid 20s to near freezing by early Tuesday morning. Our northwest
counties will drop into the lower 20s. Wind chills will be in the
teens overnight.

Mostly sunny skies are expected on Tuesday, although it will
continue to be cold. Highs will only top out in the upper 30s to
near 40 degrees with wind chills holding in the upper 20s and
lower 30s through the day. Tuesday night looks like it will be the
coldest night of the week as a 1035 mb surface high settles over
our northwest counties. Winds will decrease to less than 5 mph
under most clear skies which should allow for near optimal
radiational cooling. Forecast lows will be in the low to mid 20s
areawide. Some of our outlying cold spots protected from any wind
could drop well into the teens.

The center of the upper trough axis will actually pass right over
north texas Tuesday night, but it will be starved for moisture, so
no clouds or precipitation is expected. As it passes to the east
on Wednesday, we'll start to see a light southerly wind become
established and temperatures will begin to climb. Highs should
warm into the mid 50s on Thursday and mid 60s by Friday. Another
weaker front should approach the area over the weekend and could
bring a small shot for rain, but we'll keep the forecast dry at
this time.

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.
