. New AVIATION .
SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) Issued at 240 AM CDT Sat Aug 8 2020
Some faint mid level echoes are still being observed across the southern TX panhandle and west TX early this morning. A subtle MCV near Lubbock will lift northward around the ridge and into extreme NW OK by early this evening. For now, only expect cloud cover with this feature but would not be surprised to see some sprinkles over the west and NW. Have kept PoPs just below mentionable, however. Afternoon temps will be slightly warmer today than yesterday under the influence of the upper ridge and increasing thicknesses.
LONG TERM. (Sunday through Friday) Issued at 240 AM CDT Sat Aug 8 2020
A similar pattern will be present for Sunday, although barely mentionable PoPs will return to northern OK early Monday morning on the northern fringe of the ridge thanks to a subtle mid to upper perturbation moving within zonal flow. Rain chances then increase Monday night with a cold front nudging toward the KS/OK border and height falls accompanying a mid to upper level shortwave trough. The highest chances are expected along and north of I-40 but SChcs will extend as far south as a portion of west TX as moist convection moves off the high plains overnight.
For Tue-Thu we will generally remain in NW flow aloft with at least SChc PoPs present for a portion of the area each day around the ridge. Temps will begin to moderate closer to average across most of the FA by mid to late next week.
AVIATION. (12Z TAFS) Issued at 609 AM CDT Sat Aug 8 2020
VFR ceilings this TAF period with some mid and high clouds. Gusty winds expected today. LLWS also expected at a few sites tonight.

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.
