Discussion
A potent trough axis will move across the area today with the mean
flow becoming northwesterly tonight. NW flow aloft will persist
through the weekend though a deepening trough will slide across the
region Sunday night. The next trough axis (diving across the
canadian prairies) will pass to our north on Tuesday morning and
phase with Monday's system. This will, in turn, allow ridging out
west to amplify and turn our mid level wind field more northerly
through Friday. The western ridge will flatten once again as
another trough zips through on Saturday which looks to have more of
in influence on our weather.

Today's cold front is making its way through the texas panhandle
early this morning with much vigor. Things continue to look
supportive of the ongoing wind advisory set to start at 12z. Winds
will remain up until mid afternoon as high pressure begins to settle
into the region. This will set the stage for a cool overnight
period with light winds and clear skies. A quick return to
southwesterlies is anticipated for Sunday with mildly breezy
conditions during the afternoon. Both today and tomorrow will be
markedly cooler than we saw yesterday with highs remaining in the
upper 50s and lower 60s. Thanks to lee troughing to our west, winds
are expected to remain up on Sunday night. It appears that a
dryline pacific front will move in on Monday followed by another
canadian front Tuesday morning. This front also looks to be a bit
on the breezy side though current guidance pegs it to be under
advisory criteria at this time. Some minor frontal pushes will
continue through the end of the work week with a stronger cold
front arriving next Saturday. All the while, we're expecting dry
weather to continue.

Lub watches warnings advisories
Wind advisory until 3 pm cst this afternoon for txz021>044.

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.
