Aviation
A developing upper trough in the pacific northwest and associated
lee-side surface troughing has resulted in return flow across the
southern plains and south winds around 15 kt across north and
central tx. A modest 30 kt low level jet is expected to develop
tonight, which should be sufficient for northward transport of
stratus. MVFR CIGS are expected at kact around 09z and in the dfw
area around 11z. CIGS will scatter late Thursday morning withVFR
expected for the rest of the forecast period.

Discussion issued 355 pm cdt Wed jun 28 2017
the weather has been relatively quiet today versus yesterday
across north and central texas. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms have been relegated to sea breeze activity that
will remain southeast of the forecast area for the rest of this
afternoon into the evening. With mostly sunny skies, temperatures
have risen into the upper 80s to lower 90s across the region. The
pressure gradient between a low pressure system over southwestern
kansas and high pressure over the eastern united states has
resulted in southerly winds in the 10 to 20 mph range with some
gusts over 25 mph west of the i-35 corridor.

A stronger low level jet tonight should allow for a stronger
intrusion of low clouds across the eastern 2 3s of north and
central texas late tonight Thursday morning. Skies will become
mostly sunny during the afternoon and highs will rise into the 90s
area wide. Heat index values will reach 97 to 105 degrees
Thursday. A few spots may reach heat advisory criterion but at
this time, it looks like there won't be widespread enough for a
heat advisory. It will be bit warmer (hotter?) Friday and heat
index values will reach 100 to 108 degrees. After an argy-bargy,
we decided not to issue any type of headline at this time.

As a couple of the shortwaves move across the northern plains, a
cold front will move down the plains Thursday and Friday. This
front is expected to stall near the red river late Thursday.

Showers and thunderstorms will develop along the front and move
southeast across north texas overnight Friday night and Saturday.

Some strong to severe storms will be possible along with some
locally heavy rain. Highs on Saturday will range from the upper
80s northeast to the mid 90s southwest.

Low chances of showers and thunderstorms will linger into Sunday
north of the i-20 corridor. An upper level ridge will build in
Sunday through the middle of the week. Lows will be in the 70s and
highs will be in the 90s to slightly over 100 degrees. A heat
advisory may be needed for parts of the forecast area.

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.
