Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX 225 PM CST Thu Dec 5 2019
DISCUSSION. West winds are picking up across the area this afternoon ahead of a cold front that will move through the area tonight. Isolated low end advisory level winds are being seen across the area but will be too brief to issue an advisory as they will be diminishing shortly. The High Wind Warning in the Guadalupe Mountains will remain in effect however for the next several hours since winds in the higher elevations are quite a bit stronger.
Temperatures behind the front will be cooler, but still above normal and combined with dry conditions will allow for a very pleasant weekend. Clouds increase Monday ahead of the next front due on Monday night keeping temps slightly cooler. The ECMWF and Canadian models are showing precipitation developing along and just behind the front as the rear entrance region of an upper jet max enhances lift across the Permian Basin which looks reasonable though the GFS is noticeably drier. Most of the area will be too warm for wintry precip though it could be close in the northern basin. Have kept the weather grids all rain for now but there is potential for slick conditions developing from Hobbs to Snyder early Tuesday that will have to be monitored. Precip ends during the day on Tuesday, which will be the coldest day of the week, followed by warmer temps Wed/Thu.

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.
