656 pm cdt Sat sep 21 2019
a breezy southeast flow is in place across much of the area early
this evening. Winds are forecast to remain around 10 to 15 knot
range with gusts up to 25 knots through about midnight tonight.
Vfr conditions are expected across all area sites through 04z Sunday
with MVFR CIGS anticipated for the i-35 terminals to begin around
05z or short after. Current area radar images show isolated showers
nearby ksat and kssf, however, the trend is for these showers to
diminish and come to an end within the next few hours and hires
models agree on this solution. MVFR CIGS will dominate the overnight
hours through late Sunday morning before clouds break for the return
ofVFR conditions. Southerly flow continues on Sunday with speeds
ranging from 10 to 15 knots with higher gusts. Most showers and
storms to stay over the coastal plains on Sunday afternoon evening.

deeper tropical moisture is draped along a georgetown to boerne to
carrizo springs line late this afternoon per GOES total precipitable
water satellite imagery and have done a quick update to pull
isolated rain chances into the hill country and highway 83 corridor
based on latest radar trends. Aircraft soundings out of austin and
san antonio show weak mid-level lapse rates and overall
lightning thunderstorm potential appears to remain low through the
early evening hours. Given the diurnally driven nature of these
showers, still anticipate loss of daytime heating to result in a
quick dissipation of this activity by 9 pm.

short term (tonight through Sunday)...
isolated showers are ongoing across portions of the coastal plains
and even extending up into the san antonio area where a plume of
elevated moisture exists. A few areas have picked up some wetting
rains, with stinson airport on the southeast side of san antonio
receiving a half inch of rain. Temperatures this afternoon are
primarily in the 90s, with a few cooler locations across the hill
country and where rain cooled air and increased cloud cover has kept
temperatures tempered. Shower activity should come to an end this
evening with the loss of heating. Expect partly to mostly cloudy|
skies tonight with overnight lows in the mid 70s for most locations.
A few streamer showers are possible toward morning. Another
unseasonably warm day is expected on Sunday, with highs reaching the
mid to upper 90s for most locations. There will be another slight
chance for some showers, but the favored area will be pushed a little
bit further east to the coastal plains.
Long term (Monday through Saturday)...
the mid to upper level high across the southeastern us will
generally stay in place through Monday before shifting further
southeast to the eastern gulf of mexico near florida toward mid week.
An upper level trough is expected to come ashore in the pacific
northwest by Sunday evening, heading southeast and becoming a well
defined closed mid level low by Tuesday morning near the
california arizona mexico border. It is expected to generally hang
out in that area before becoming an open wave trough and existing to
the northeast. For us here across south central texas, not a whole
heck of a lot is expected to change, with south southeasterly surface
flow and generally weak mid to upper level winds persisting. Slight
chance pops, high temperatures in the mid 90s, and lows in the mid
70s are expected to continue through the period. The climate
prediction center's 6 to 10 and 8 to 14 day outlooks continue to show
high probabilities for warmer than normal temperatures continuing,
and long term models continue to show no cold fronts on the horizon.

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.
