surface moisture remains quite limited today as the cold front
from Saturday night has now pushed down to the texas coastal
region. Dew points locally today will remain in the 30s today.

Despite the low moisture values, steep mid level lapse rates and a
disturbance in the upper atmosphere moving southeast should
trigger scattered thunderstorms in the higher terrain of northern
new mexico. Those storms are forecast to move east and southeast
toward the panhandle. As such, we have a slight chance of rain in
the southwest panhandle tonight. However, in all probability the
storms will fall apart before reaching the state line.

South to southeast surface winds will continue and we expect
increasing atmospheric moisture begin a much more rapid increase
Tuesday night into Wednesday as a disturbance in an upper trough
on the west coast approaches from the west. Accordingly we expect
thunderstorm chances to increase significantly from late Tuesday
night through Wednesday and Thursday. With precipitable water
increasing to around 1.3 inches and winds aloft relatively
light, we could see some slow moving storms with locally heavy
rainfall.

In the longer range of the models starting about Friday and going
through the weekend the forecast upper pattern becomes
significantly less certain with significant differences between
the models. Rain chances are expected to decrease, but not
completely.

With regards to temperatures, we have gone fairly close to
guidance. Highs should remain in the 80s through Thursday with the
increasing moisture and cloud cover, but then warm to the 90s for
the weekend.

Lub watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
