SHORT TERM. /NEW/ Update: Only a few minor changes were made with this update. Temperatures were bumped up a degree or two today as widespread rain is expected to arrive an hour or two later than previously anticipated. Showers and isolated thunderstorms have developed across the Big Country and Panhandle and will continue to increase in coverage as they move eastward throughout the day. Rain will continue through the overnight hours, gradually coming to an end from west to east on Sunday.
Previous Discussion: /Through Sunday/
Ongoing showers across Central Texas will gradually increase in coverage overnight tonight. Only a couple rumbles of thunder are expected as there is little in the way of instability. Widespread rain is expected to develop just to our west early this morning as an upper low approaches the area. Rain with isolated thunderstorms will slowly move east throughout the day with a cold rain overspreading most of the area by the afternoon hours. Thanks to the cloudy and rainy conditions, temperatures will be confined to the 40s in the west to 50s elsewhere, making for the coldest day so far this month.
Rain will end as early as Saturday night for areas out west, but is expected to continue into Sunday for those further east. Sunshine will gradually make its return as skies clear from west to east Sunday afternoon. Despite the sunshine, Sunday will still be another chilly day with highs only in the 50s across the board. As the upper low exits to our east, all rain should finally come to an end by Sunday afternoon.
LONG TERM. /Issued 240 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020/ /Sunday Night Onward/
On Sunday evening, a secondary cold front will arrive and rapidly plunge through the forecast area before daybreak Monday. Despite north winds already being in place prior to its arrival, this front will bring noticeably colder and drier air with dewpoints falling into the teens and twenties. A stronger north breeze will combine with colder air for wind chill values in the teens and low 20s to begin the workweek. The post-frontal arctic airmass will take up residence across most of the region through Monday night, contributing to what should be the coldest night of the season so far. A widespread freeze is expected Monday night into Tuesday, so those remaining locations in the CWA that haven't experienced a freeze yet should plan accordingly. Following the cold start to the day, Tuesday will warm up quickly with sunny skies, dry air, and a return of southerly winds and warm advection. Highs will be in the 50s to low 60s.
The primary forecast dilemma through the extended is the Wednesday to Friday time period where enormous uncertainties exist among guidance. While it is clear that broad troughing will remain in place over the entire CONUS, the evolution of individual disturbances rotating through the parent trough will have considerable implications on our local forecast. Depending on the speed and arrival time of the first disturbance, it could either consist of another dry cold frontal passage, or significant widespread rainfall with perhaps some wintry weather trailing behind. Ensemble guidance disagrees mightily at this time, and one can find whatever wishcast scenario they're rooting for after sorting through dozens of ensembles. At this point, below- average forecast confidence doesn't warrant anything more than 20-30% chances for rainfall starting Wednesday and ending Thursday with colder air arriving Thursday night which generally follows ensemble mean solutions. Expect some dramatic shifts in the forecast until guidance comes into better agreement in a few more days.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /12z TAFs/
MVFR ceilings will prevail for much of the day across all terminals. A few hours of VFR are expected for D10, but ceilings will deteriorate once again this afternoon. Showers and isolated thunderstorms have developed to our west this morning and will continue to increase in coverage as they move eastward throughout the day. Rain should arrive at ACT near 18Z and D10 near 20Z. Ceilings will continue to deteriorate to IFR by the afternoon/evening. LIFR may be possible at times overnight tonight, though confidence is still a bit low to include in the TAF for now.
Rain will gradually come to an end from west to east Sunday morning, with rain likely ending at all terminals in the 12-15Z timeframe. Northerly winds will prevail through the TAF period near 5-10 knots.

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.
