cool surface ridging was continuing to build into the region early
this morning, well behind a cold front which was now advancing
through the hill country. Stratus has filled in well behind the
front and was now blanketing northwest texas. These clouds will
persist through much of the morning before breaking up this
afternoon, though mid-high clouds will linger. As the surface ridge
axis traverses the south plains winds will become light and variable
this afternoon, but it will remain cool, with highs only in the
lower to middle 40s.

After another cool night tonight, temperatures will rebound well
into the 50s tomorrow as the surface ridge relents and an upper
ridge begins to approach from the west. The mild conditions will
prevail into the coming week, though we could see a few degrees of
cooling behind a glancing shot of a surface high roaming the midwest
Monday afternoon.

A weakening mid-level disturbance remains on track, undercutting
the approaching ridge, by mid-week. Just enough moisture and lift
could support isolated to scattered light showers on Wednesday.

Breezy southerly winds and mild temperatures will follow on
thanksgiving ahead of a storm system moving into the western
states. This system will emerge over the high plains late week. An
increase in wind looks like the most likely outcome, though the
00z ECMWF has trended further south and would support increased
precipitation chances. We have kept pops unmentionable for now,
pending further run-to-run and model-to-model support. The
progressive pattern will supply another storm system approaching
the region just beyond the end of the forecast, though its depth
is also in question.

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.
