Please see the 12z aviation discussion below.
Vfr conditions will prevail through the forecast period, with
winds becoming southwesterly at all terminals by mid to late
morning. Sustained speeds will be around 12kt or less, but
intermittent gusts to around 15-20kt will be possible.

wv imagery shows the upper, negatively-tilted trough exiting the
central CONUS for the ms valley, which will allow the west coast
ridge to return to west texas and southeast new mexico for the next
few days. This will bring an end to the convection of the past few
days, and replace it with record-breaking triple digits across the
region, perhaps the hottest temps so far, and for the rest of, 2019.
Thicknesses continue increasing today, W 30c+ h85 temps developing
into the region, then top out Monday as temps increase to 35c or
better. 00z kmaf RAOB mixed down 16f from 850mb, and most models
are reaching 36c over kmaf Monday afternoon, which would be about
113f at kmaf. Nbm and other blends are more in the 110f range.
Since the nbm by default tends to smooth out the extremes, and
current forecast is 109, we'll split the difference and increase
temps a couple of degrees Monday afternoon. This will put most of
the CWA east of the pecos in excessive heat territory, as well as
the foothills of the davis mtns. Elsewhere looks suitable for an
advisory. Since we already have an advisory out for areas east of
the pecos today, we'll go W an excessive heat watch for Monday.
We can then upgrade to a warning tonight and add the advisory.
Tuesday, an upper trough moving thru canada just north of the u.S.
Border is forecast to send a cold front into the region, and models
offer differing solutions as to its strength. The NAM is strongest
w the front, taking temps Tue afternoon all the way down to near
normal, whereas the GFS canadian hang on to the triple digits as|
best they can. Given the anticipated temps in place south of the
front and the time of year, we're not buying what the NAM is selling
attm, and will go W the warmer solutions. Best estimates of frontal
timing hang it up diurnally across the NRN tier counties mid-late
morning. The front should crank back up after peak heating late tue
afternoon. The upshot will be a chance of convection along the
front Tue night wed.
In the extended, the ridge will settle in over the SW conus, leaving
the area open to shortwaves moving down the ERN side of the ridge
into the weekend and leaving the door open for convection, mainly
nw. Temps should stay in the 90s most locations Wed onward, but
stay above normal.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
