AVIATION. /12Z TAFs/
A stratus deck over South Central and Southeast Texas continues to dissipate as it attempts to spread north, so the morning MVFR group has been removed from the KACT forecast. VFR and light south winds are expected at all locations through early Friday. A surface low and weak front will approach from the northwest on Friday, hence the additional line in the extended portion of the DFW TAF indicating veering winds ahead of the system. One-line TAFs should suffice for the rest of the sites at this time.
SHORT TERM. /Issued 240 AM CST Thu Dec 12 2019/ /Today and Tonight/
Water vapor and IR imagery reveal a shortwave trough crossing the Texas - New Mexico border early this morning. This system will continue eastward across the Southern Plains today, producing little more than high cloud cover. Night fog imagery indicates a swath of meager moisture return over Southeast Texas in the form of a northward-expanding deck of stratus, generated by return flow ahead of the approaching system. These clouds will reach Central Texas this morning but should become more disperse the farther north they advance. Winds will veer and clouds will become shunted off to the east later today as the disturbance moves quickly east across the Plains, leading to a partly to mostly sunny day with seasonable temperatures. Southerly surface winds and slightly higher dewpoints will keep tonight's temperatures a few degrees above last nights readings, with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
LONG TERM. /Issued 240 AM CST Thu Dec 12 2019/ /Friday through Wednesday/
The end of the week through the upcoming weekend and into next week look to be generally quiet with only one quick shot for some rainfall. Friday morning, we'll start off beneath northwest flow aloft with a fast moving disturbance swinging through the Southern Plains. A weak area of surface low pressure will move across North Texas resulting in light southerly winds becoming northerly with a weak front sliding into the area early Saturday. There really won't be any appreciable temperature change behind the front with perhaps only some passing cloud cover.
Weak shortwave ridging will prevail Saturday into Sunday within generally zonal flow aloft. A strong shortwave will move into the 4-corners region by late Sunday though and surface pressures will fall in advance of this feature. This should lead to an increase in southerly winds late Sunday with fairly stout warm advection occurring well into the nighttime hours. An increase in cloud cover is expected during this time, although a surge in moisture will be displaced just to our north and east. As the strong shortwave kicks out into the Plains Sunday night, a deep surface low should track to near Wichita Falls before racing northeast toward Tulsa by early Monday morning. A strong cold front will slide southward through western Oklahoma and into North Texas during the day Monday. To the east of the surface low and cold front, we could see a few scattered showers and perhaps a thunderstorm as early as late Sunday night into Monday morning. The best chances for rainfall will be east of I-35.
This system quickly races eastward on Monday with rain chances diminishing as the front moves through. Highs on Monday will range from the 40s in the northwest to the upper 50s in the southeast. High pressure will quickly build in behind the front with Monday night being cold and most areas dropping to freezing or below. The remainder of the week looks quiet with temperatures remaining in the 50s for highs through Thursday. We'll keep an eye on another potential system by next Friday which could bring some additional rain chances.

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.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
