Vfr conditions will continue through the next 24 hours. Some
isolated shower and thunderstorm activity will be possible this
afternoon through sunset at all terminals, but confidence is too
low to mention at this time.

discussion...

upper-air analysis and water vapor imagery this morning shows an
upper ridge centered over southwest texas with an upper trough
over california. In-between, sub-tropical moisture was moving out
of northwest mexico into far west texas and SRN new mexico. The
ridging over texas may not be strong enough to completely
suppress convection across our forecast area today. Some of the
high-res guidance shows convective signals focused on the southern
rolling plains. We've added a isolated mention to the forecast to
cover this possibility. Guidance also suggests that temperatures
will warm just a couple degrees over Friday, with highs near 90 in
the far southwest panhandle to upper 90s in the low rolling
plains.

On Sunday, the bulk of the moisture plume will remain to the west
over nm, but guidance is showing several small-scale convectively-
induced vortices that will be lifting northeast across nm and
support t-storm activity out near the tx-nm state line by Sunday
evening. These vortices will likely keep t-storm activity going
through the night across much of eastern nm and potentially
spreading farther east across the far southwest tx panhandle and
western south plains. Unfortunately, it looks like there is a good
chance that cloud cover associated with this activity may extend
east across portions of the caprock Monday and interfere with the
viewing of the eclipse. However, there is still uncertainty with
just how the activity will evolve overnight and it's still
possible skies could at least partially clear for some locations.

We are fairly confident that the chances for good viewing
conditions will be better east than west, with the lubbock area
located roughly in the middle.

Upper-ridging will pump up across the area Monday into Tuesday,
temporarily reducing rain chances. But the chances will be on the
upswing late Tuesday into Wednesday as a cold front moves into
the south plains. The upper trough supporting the front appears to
be fairly vigorous as it moves out of canada into the midwest and
should support widespread convection along the front across the
central and southern plains. So we are pretty confident that the
front will reach our forecast area, but there is still some
uncertainty in the timing, with the ECMWF bringing it through late
Tuesday and the GFS on Wednesday. As the western trough finally
ejects across the plains late week, it looks like we will maintain
a favorable pattern for t-storm chances for several days,
especially if the front lingers in the area. The GFS has also come
on board with the cooler ECMWF temperatures, with highs mainly in
the 80s beyond Tuesday, and perhaps some 70s Wednesday and
Thursday.

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.
