DANGEROUS HEATWAVE CONTINUES ACROSS THE REGION TODAY.
Ongoing forecast looks reasonable and no changes were needed to the Excessive Heat Warnings/Heat Advisories, and high temperatures for today across west Texas and southeast New Mexico. In addition it still looks like isolated to widely scattered high based afternoon and evening thunderstorms are in store across the mountains and the adjacent plains, including the northern Permian Basin, as convective temperatures are reached by this afternoon. Brief strong winds will be the main potential concern with any storms that develop as the temperature/dew point spread will be very large.
Good news is in store for west Texas and southeast New Mexico beginning Wednesday through the weekend as the strong upper level ridge centered over west Texas will slowly drift northward into north Texas. This should allow some relief from the excessive heat. Some Heat Advisories will still likely be needed Wednesday across portions of the forecast area but that could be the last day that they will be needed as temperatures will continue to cool slightly away from the ridge as easterly flow aloft develops. Precipitation chances will remain on the slim side with the mountains having the best chance of seeing any convection.
FIRE WEATHER . Another day of unseasonably hot temperatures expected today . expect to see highs up to 110 degrees or more across much of the area. This will result in minimum RH falling to around 15 percent or less areawide. Overnight RH recovery will only be fair. A surface trough will set up over the area with a 20ft south wind ahead of it of 10 to 20 mph. RFTI values of 2 to 3 are expected today across the Permian Basin and Trans Pecos . this will result in near critical fire weather conditions. Have issued a Fire Danger Statement. There is a slight chance of afternoon and evening storms with dry lightning possible west of a Lamesa to Marfa line. Lower temperatures expected Wednesday with some increase in moisture but fewer storms. RH increases more on Thursday as fire wx concerns decrease.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
