. New AVIATION .
SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) Issued at 340 AM CDT Sat Mar 28 2020
Radar shows elevated showers and thunderstorms developing from western north Texas to northwest of Oklahoma City early this morning. The environment is not supportive of surface-based convection, so we expect these showers and storms to remain elevated early this morning. This should limit the threats to lightning, brief heavy rain, and some hail . severe hail will be possible.
The storms should be east of our forecast area by mid-morning, and cooler and much drier air will rush in from the west. Wind speeds across west-central, northwest, and north-central Oklahoma will be in the range of Wind Advisory criteria for much of the day (which is why we are including a Wind Advisory in this issuance).
Winds will subside quickly this evening, and temperatures will drop back closer to the typical values for this time of year.
LONG TERM. (Sunday through Friday) Issued at 302 AM CDT Sat Mar 28 2020
Unlike the record heat of a few days earlier in the week, much of next week will have near to slightly above-normal temperatures. The several fronts around mid-week, will keep minimum temperatures around normal values, but any cold air will be well to the northeast of Oklahoma. After lighter winds Sunday, an upper level short-wave trough will approach the southern plains Monday afternoon. Cyclogenesis over the Texas panhandle will increase south winds across Oklahoma and advect moisture into the state. Elevated showers and storms may occur early Monday in advance of the wave before the front and dry line move eastward with rain/storms likely later Monday. After this system passes to the east on Tuesday morning, the rest of the week will be under the influence of the southern part of the northern branch of the westerlies. A generally dry and mild air mass will prevail with only a low chance for showers on Thursday with a frontal passage.
AVIATION. (18Z TAFS) Issued at 1234 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2020
Gusty southwest to northwest winds will impact some terminals this afternoon with crosswinds. As mixing and cold advection decreases early this evening, wind gusts will decrease rather quickly. VFR conditions will prevail with CU developing across northern Oklahoma this afternoon.

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.
