SHORT TERM. /NEW/ /Tonight through Tomorrow Night/

Another cool and quiet night is expected across the region with clear skies and light wind prevailing. The dry air will promote very efficient radiational cooling this evening with a strong radiation inversion developing just above the surface. As this does so, the low level winds will switch to become out of the southwest in response to a deepening trough over the Central Plains. The wind shift will help advect slightly warmer air into the region and also increase the strength of the inversion aloft. These factors will keep this morning's temperatures warmer than last night's . about 5 degrees warmer for areas east of I-35, but about 8-10 degrees warmer for areas west of I-35.

Abundant insolation tomorrow will make quick work of the shallow inversion within a few hours of daybreak. A brief period of gusty winds are expected in the mid-morning hours, but otherwise southwest winds between 5-10 mph are expected. Weak downslope flow will help bump temperatures up quite a bit more than they have been the past couple of days, with many locations along and west of I-35 topping out in the low 90s. Although air temperatures will be high, RH values will bottom out in the teens so at least it's a dry (and short lived) heat.

A similar forecast is in store for tomorrow night, with one notable exception. A weak cold front will start to work its way into the region from the northeast in the early morning hours. It won't have any real impact to the pre-dawn temperatures, but will bring a post-frontal wind shift as well as a slight increase in dew points to North Texas.

LONG TERM. /Issued 131 PM CDT Tue Sep 29 2020/ /Wednesday Night through Tuesday/

Northwest flow aloft will dominate through early next week as a ridging continues to prevail over the West Coast and a large unseasonably strong trough remains over the eastern US. This flow will send 2 fronts through the region in the next week. The first will be on Thursday and characterized by a weak and gradual wind shift to the northeast with slightly cooler high temperatures in the upper 70s in the northeast zones to upper 80s in the southwest. Nice autumn weather will continue Friday with clear skies, light winds, and low humidity. Highs should be in the low 70s to low 80s over the region and with good radiational cooling at night they'll fall into the 50s. Southerly winds increase on Saturday ahead of the second stronger front that will arrive Sunday. Some meager moisture returns by Saturday evening and a strong upper level disturbance moves through the Plains on Saturday night. This will lead to a few showers and possibly an isolated storm ahead of the front mainly across the northeastern zones. Slightly cooler temperatures are expected Sunday into Monday behind this front which will maintain the pleasant weather into next week.

TR.92

AVIATION. /NEW/ /00Z TAFs/

A light northwest wind this evening will become southwesterly within the next 1-2 hours. Wind speeds should remain AOB 10 kts through the night and much of the day tomorrow. The exception to this will be between ~14-16Z where wind gusts to around 18 KTS are possible, but the operational impact should be negligible. VFR and clear skies will prevail through the valid TAF period.

A weak cold front will start to move into North Texas in the early morning hours tomorrow and bring a northerly wind shift beyond the current TAF period.

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.
