A weak upper level storm system currently across the extreme
eastern permian basin will slowly sink south southeast toward
south texas by late Thursday afternoon. The system is moisture
starved so not expecting any sensible weather with it overnight
as it departs the forecast area. Below normal temperatures are
expected tonight in its wake with clear skies and surface high
A warming to above normal temperatures is in store Thursday and
Friday as swift westerly flow aloft overspreads the region ahead
of the next weak pacific upper trough. Surface lee troughing
combined with plenty of clear sky and downslope flow and low level
thermal ridging should help boost the temperatures to much above
normal by Friday. Later shifts will need to monitor the potential
for high winds in the higher elevations of the guadalupe and
delaware mountains Friday due to the swift westerly flow aloft.
A dry cold front will follow Friday night as the upper trough
passes by to the north but temperatures will still remain above|
normal this weekend with plenty of sunshine. Another weak and dry
upper trough will send another cold front into the area Sunday
night knocking temperatures back to near normal next Monday and
Tuesday with above normal temperatures (and dry) following next
Wednesday and Thursday.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. 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.
