8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

AVIATION. Light rain with some isolated pockets of moderate rain continues for the I-35 terminals. DRT has made it into the dry slot of this system and should experience VFR conditions through the period. As for the other sites, expect IFR ceilings to prevail until around 07-08Z with rain gradually clearing over the next few hours this evening. As rain showers begin to clear, visibilities should improve as well. As drier air filters in under persistent northerly winds, skies will gradually clear throughout Sunday with VFR prevailing for all sites by the end of the period.
PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 222 PM CST Sat Nov 28 2020/
SHORT TERM (Tonight through Sunday Night) . The combination of the large mid-level low advancing into the Texas panhandle and isentropic lift with pacific moisture streaming across the region above a shallow cool layer continues to generate light rain with embedded areas of moderate to heavy rain and the occasional stray thunderstorm. Rainfall totals of 0.5 to 2.5 inches, with locally more in spots, over the past 24 hours have generally materialized within a swath across the southern half of the region, including the San Antonio area. Areas have not been as fortunate for rainfall further to the north so far, including the Austin to Georgetown area. However, the potential remains to add to the totals into the first half of tonight before conditions dry out from west to east as drier air wraps into the region as the mid-level low advances to the east. A cool night is expected with lows in the 40s for most with portions of the Hill Country down into the mid to upper 30s. Some patchy fog may develop after midnight for portions of the Hill Country as well.
Sunny to mostly sunny skies prevail Sunday with cool temperatures. Afternoon highs are expected to range from the mid to upper 50s across the Hill Country to around 70 degrees across the Rio Grande Plains. A secondary shortwave tailing behind the mid-level low across the central plains will help to push a secondary cold front across the region from Sunday afternoon into Sunday night with strong surface high pressure filtering into the region behind the boundary. Expect for moderate northerly breezes to arrive with the front and to linger into Sunday night. The elevated wind speeds should help keep much of the metro area from dropping to freezing into Monday morning. However, for the Hill Country, despite the lasting winds, are still expected to drop below freezing from overnight Sunday night into Monday morning. Across these regions, freeze products will likely be needed.
LONG TERM (Monday through Saturday) . The upper level flow will become northwesterly Monday. Dry weather will continue in this pattern. CAA will continue Monday. Monday night winds will decrease and skies will be clear leading to good radiational cooling. Low temperatures Tuesday will likely be below freezing across the entire area and a Freeze Warning will be likely. The low level flow will switch to the south or southeast during the day Tuesday bringing warmer air back to the region. Low temperatures Wednesday morning will be around 10 degrees warmer than Tuesday. Wednesday a cold front will move into the area. Models are split on how active the weather will be with this system. The blended model solution is bringing rain chances to the eastern half of the area, but the GFS keeps all precip to our east. We have decided to keep in POPs, but reduce them. We have slight to low end chance for Wednesday and Thursday. This front will bring another shot of cooler air for the later half of the week with dry weather for Friday and Saturday. We may see another freeze for the Hill Country and Edwards Plateau Friday morning.

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 numerous 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.
