SHORT TERM. /Issued 1149 AM CDT Sat Mar 28 2020/ /This afternoon through Sunday afternoon/
Showers and thunderstorms will move into East Texas this afternoon with the arrival of dry air behind a cold front. Breezy westerly winds and the return of abundant spring sun this afternoon will allow temperatures to warm into the mid and upper 70s. Temperatures will fall quickly after sunset with increasing low level cold air advection, decreasing wind speeds and dewpoints mainly in the 30s. Overnight lows will fall mainly into the 40s except for a few lower 50s in the southeast zones and portions of the Metroplex.
Sunday morning will start out quite cool but temperatures will warm up steadily with waning cold air advection and abundant sun. Afternoon highs should still manage to make it into the 70s with a northeast to east wind generally below 10 mph.
LONG TERM. /NEW/ /Sunday Night onward/
Monday will see the highest rain chances this week as a potent upper-level shortwave trough swings through the Southern Plains. Large-scale ascent, deep moisture, and instability will result in widespread shower and thunderstorm development by early afternoon. The initial development will be over western portions of our CWA, with convective activity spreading eastward throughout the day. Right now, while enough instability will be present to allow for thunderstorm development, it won't be tremendously high. The limited instability will be the main limiting factor for severe thunderstorms. Still, SPC has highlighted a Slight Risk across our eastern counties where instability will be a little greater. More significantly, forecast soundings show large and curving low-level hodographs across our eastern counties. This means any strong updrafts that do manage to develop will be able to tap into this low-level shear, and could quickly become severe. Damaging wind gusts, large hail, and a few tornadoes may be possible. The greatest threat for severe weather will be east of I-45 during the late afternoon and evening hours.
The rest of the week through at least Thursday should be fairly quiet as shortwave ridging overspread the south-central CONUS. Despite the ridging, temperatures will be near normal for much of the week (highs in the low to mid 70s, with overnight lows in the 50s). Towards the end of the week, upper-level flow will become more southwesterly, with the next shortwave trough approaching on late Thursday and into Friday. This will likely lead to increasing shower/thunderstorm chances. The ECMWF is more aggressive than the GFS with respect to QPF coverage, with both models showing a wide amount of disagreement. For this reason, will keep PoPs on the lower side and monitor trends through the week.
AVIATION. /Issued 1149 AM CDT Sat Mar 28 2020/ /18Z TAFs/
Thunderstorms will continue moving east of the TAF sites early this afternoon with VFR conditions expected through Sunday morning. Some mid and high clouds associated with a departing 130 knot jet will linger through the afternoon, but skies will clear tonight and remain mostly clear through Sunday.
A breezy west to northwest wind will prevail behind a cold front this afternoon between 12 and 17 knots along with some gusts near 30 knots. Wind speeds will fall below 12 knots around sunset while gradually turning to the north/northeast tonight/Sunday morning.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
