The main focus for this forecast is thunderstorms today and the
return of potentially record-breaking heat by the end of the
weekend. A weak upper trough will remain draped over the region
today and Saturday with isolated scattered thunderstorms expected
across portions of the region each day. Lingering surface
boundaries and perhaps a decaying MCV or two from last nights
storms have already become a focus for thunderstorm development
early this afternoon. Will continue to have a decent amount of low
and mid level moisture across the region and, much like what we
saw Thursday, storm motion will be very slow. Heavy rainfall will
be possible with any thunderstorm so some flooding issues can be
expected across some areas. Otherwise, we will have one more day
with high temperatures generally in the mid-upper 90s Saturday.
Although, a few areas along the pecos and rio grande river valleys
will still see highs near 100.
The upper ridge to the west will begin to build east over the region
this weekend, diminishing rain chances for all by Sunday with dry
conditions expected through perhaps mid next week. Meanwhile, the
mid-level thermal ridge returns with 850mb temperatures increasing
to 30-35c Sunday, Monday, and potentially Tuesday. So expect the
widespread triple digit heat to return! Monday (aug. 26) looks to
be the hottest of the three days with highs 105-110f for many
areas. Slightly cooler in the mountains but all areas could meet
heat advisory criteria and potentially push excessive heat warning
criteria. Just for reference, the current record high
temperature at midland international for the date of aug. 26 is|
105f (2011) and the forecast has now been increased to 108f. The
all time high temperature for the month of august is 107f (1936 &
1964). For now, will continue to mention extreme heat expected
during this time in the hwo.
Models show a cold front dropping through the tx panhandle Tuesday.
Will it make it this far south Tuesday night? Maybe if there is
convection associated with it to help it along... We hope so.
Wednesday, 850mb temperatures begin to back off a bit so high
temperatures return to the 90s for most through the remainder of
the work week.

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.
