8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

SHORT TERM. /Issued 1245 AM CST Wed Nov 25 2020/ /Through Thursday/
A line of thunderstorms will continue to make its way through the area over the next hour or two. The severe threat has diminished, though brief heavy downpours, lightning, and gusty winds will still be possible for those who remain in the path of the storms.
Meanwhile, a cold front is approximately draped along a Bonham to Lampasas line and will continue to push its way south and east over the next couple of hours. Skies will quickly clear behind the front as any residual moisture is scoured out of the area. Additionally, a steady drop in temperatures is expected as cooler and drier air filters into the region. Morning lows will range from the upper 30s in the northwest to low 50s in the south.
The rest of the day will be sunny and pleasant with afternoon temperatures trending closer to average in the upper 50s to mid 60s. An area of high pressure near the surface will migrate over the region this evening, allowing winds to become light. Southerly flow will be re-established overnight and will gradually bring moisture back into the region on Thursday. The increase in moisture and breezy southwesterly winds will make for a warm and sunny Thanksgiving Day with highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s.
LONG TERM. /NEW/ /Thursday Night through Tuesday/
Moisture will be on the increase by Thursday night across the region as we begin to feel the influence of a deepening upper trough over the Southwest U.S. A strong shortwave moving through the Northern Plains will send a cold front southward into North Texas Thursday night. This front should should initially arrive precipitation free, but as it pushes farther into Central Texas it will encounter a moisture rich environment across Southeast Texas. Showers and a few thunderstorms are likely to develop across Southeast Texas and some of this activity will likely spread into our southern counties by early Friday morning. Surface based instability will likely be waning by mid morning Friday across the southeast, but increasing large scale forcing for ascent from the approaching trough will overspread the region through the day. This will help to amplify low level warm advection and keep the potential for a few rumbles of thunder into the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be about 10-15 degrees cooler than on Thanksgiving day.
Model guidance has come into better agreement with the handling of the upper trough through the weekend, with a slower but still progressive track through the Southern Plains. This bodes well for increasing rain chances and much needed additional rainfall across the region. Low level isentropic ascent will continue to increase through Friday night with forcing becoming maximized across North Texas Saturday and Saturday night. We'll advertise steadily increasing PoPs Friday night through Saturday night. Rainfall amounts should be highest across our southeast counties and lowest to the west and northwest through Saturday night. The widespread rain and cloud cover will keep high temperatures 5-10 degrees below normal through the weekend.
This system should continue eastward into early next week with a cold front moving through Sunday night and early Monday morning. High temperatures will likely only top out in the low 50s on Monday with freezing temperatures expected over a good portion of the region Monday night.
AVIATION. /Issued 1245 AM CST Wed Nov 25 2020/ /06Z TAFs/
Showers and thunderstorms have come to an end at all TAF sites, though impacts are still expected for Cedar Creek and Bonham arrivals for the next few hours or so.
A cold front is currently progressing through the area with skies clearing just behind it. Gusty northerly winds will be possible behind the front for the next few hours, but should subside to 10 knots or so near sunrise. A surface high will allow winds to become light by this afternoon. Brief variable winds will be possible between 00-03Z as they begin to shift back out of the south with wind speeds near 5 knots or less. Southerly flow will be re-established by 06-09Z Thursday with light winds prevailing through the extended TAF period.

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.

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 numerous 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.
