strong south-southwest winds are feeding into a surface low
pressure center which is currently over eastern kansas tonight.

This system will continue to move east on Saturday and will result
in a cold front moving through north texas. To the south, an area
of MVFR stratus has developed from the hill country northward to
just east of waco. The strong southwest winds above the surface
should continue to advect this lower cloud cover off to the
northeast. At this time, we think the lower ceilings will remain
east of the major airports in the metroplex, but we'll include a
tempo at waco through the early morning hours.

Otherwise, wind will be the main concern. Southwest winds around
20 kt will prevail overnight tonight with the cold front moving
into the metroplex around 15z. Winds will shift to the northwest
and increase to 24g36kt for much of the day. The initial wind
shift will result in some crosswind issues on N S runways but
winds should become more northerly through midday reducing this
impact.

the low-level troughing in the lee of the rockies is near its
maximum intensity. It will soon dislodge and surge south as a cold
front tonight. This will limit the extent that the surface layer
decouples, maintaining breezy conditions. Dry westerly flow at
850mb will keep a shallow cap in place. Beneath the inversion, a
nocturnal jet may approach 50kts at 2-3kft agl. As this intense
moisture flux is squeezed within this thin layer, a stratus deck
will re-establish itself. It still appears that the westerly
component within the cloud-bearing layer will keep the stratus
confined to central and east texas, keeping the northwestern half
of the CWA (including dallas fort worth and sherman denison) free
of low clouds. In our southeastern zones, where the layer may
become supersaturated, there could be some spits of rain, but the
layer should be too thin to support showers with measurable
rainfall.

Long term issued 343 pm cst Fri nov 17 2017
Saturday through Friday
a strong cold front will sweep across the region on Saturday
bringing strong north winds and dropping temperatures to the
region. A wind advisory has been issued for all but our far south
and southeast counties. The wind advisory starts at 7 am for all
included counties in north and central texas, but the front likely
won't reach the southern portions of the advisory until after
midday. Breezy southwest winds will occur across central texas
ahead of the front, but the strongest winds are not expected
until the front arrives in the afternoon. In the advisory area,
sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph will be
possible. Outside the advisory, winds will still be strong but
slightly below criteria. Wind speeds will diminish Saturday
evening and Sunday night as the surface high slides across the
region.

Falling temperatures are expected behind the front on Saturday,
but locations from cameron to hearne to centerville may warm to
near 80 degrees before the front arrives around mid-afternoon.

Ahead of the front, some light rain or sprinkles may also occur in
the morning hours along and southeast of a cameron to athens
line. With the strong winds behind the front, apparent
temperatures will feel slightly lower than the actual temperature.

With clearing skies and light winds Saturday night, overnight
lows will drop into the 30s and lower 40s with some locations near
freezing in our northwest and western counties. Sunday will be a
chilly day with highs in the lower to mid 60s, and then overnight
lows will fall into the 30s and lower 40s again Sunday night.

Temperatures will experience a slow warm up Monday and Tuesday,
but then another front arrives Tuesday night. Moisture return
looks meager ahead of the Tuesday night front, but have kept a
slight chance for rain in central texas Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Temperatures will once again slowly rebound before another front
next weekend. Overall, temperatures are expected to remain near
and slightly below normal for this time of year.

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.
