an otherwise mild week ahead will be punctuated by some thunderstorm
chances late this week as well as some fire weather concerns on
Saturday. See below for details.
As southerly flow returns tonight, warming trend will continue. The
one area where this will be limited is where snow pack across
northern oklahoma into parts of western oklahoma will keep
temperatures cooler. Kept temperatures below guidance for tonights
low and Thursdays high for this region.
A deep upper low is forecast to approach the southern plains on
Thursday. Warm moist advection with isentropic lift will bring rain
chances in from the south starting late Thursday early Friday.
Instability will increase late Friday into the overnight period,|
leading to a potential for strong or marginally severe storms.
As the upper system nears oklahoma, a cold front and dryline will
approach the area early Saturday morning, providing the focus for a
second round of showers storms.
With gusty winds expected on Saturday, fire weather concerns could
become elevated to near critical across portions of western north
texas behind the dryline.
After this models begin to diverge. There are hints of another front
early next week, however no consensus on timing. Will follow a
blended forecast for this period.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
