PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 316 AM CST Sat Dec 14 2019/
SHORT TERM (Today through Sunday) . A nice weekend is in store for South Central Texas with Sunny skies and temperatures well above normal for the middle of December. While one trough surges towards the eastern CONUS and the next approaches California today the upper level pattern will be zonal across South Central Texas. Light and variable winds this morning will move around to the south this afternoon marking the return of southerly flow. Despite that, dry air across the Edwards Plateau could mean a few isolated spots see elevated fire weather, but winds are forecast to not be as gusty as they were yesterday. With the return flow in place some patchy fog will be possible tonight into Sunday morning, mainly along and east of the Interstate 35 corridor. During the day on Sunday the next upper level trough moves across the Rockies on a path towards the Southern Plains.
LONG TERM (Sunday Night through Friday) . The tough will deepen as it approaches the Southern Plains Sunday night into Monday. It will drag a cold front across the region to begin the work week Monday morning with global models in decent agreement that the front will arrive sometime around daybreak. With only one real day of moisture return precipitation along the front will be limited to areas east of Interstate 35. The best chance will be during the first half of Monday as the front pushes east, with drying and clearing conditions following by the late afternoon hours. An isolated thunderstorm will be possible, but the majority of the precipitation should remain showery in nature, with limited rainfall totals. The big change with this front will be the cooler air behind it as surface high pressure drops into Texas. Highs on Monday will be be seasonal, but below normal temperatures will be in place for the middle part of the week. Tuesday through Thursday will have highs in the 50s and lower 60s, with freezing or near freezing temperatures each morning. With clear skies and light winds it still looks like most areas will see a light freeze going into Wednesday morning.
Return flow kicks in late Thursday into Friday ahead of the next trough. While the 00z ECMWF and Canadian are now picking up the weak Pacific front that the GFS has been carrying for several runs the placement of the upper level trough and strength of the front are still in question a week out. Because of this confidence remains fairly low and so only slight chance PoPs have been maintained. If models continue to trend into further agreement PoPs may need to be bumped up slightly with subsequent forecasts.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website. I do not believe this site is subject to CCPA but I am doing what I can to follow the guidelines anyway.
The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. 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.
