NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1008 PM CST Tuesday Mar 3 2015 


Update... 


Corrected Thursday to Wednesday 


In reference to the winter weather event...we have looked at the 
incoming 0z model guidance as well as the 21z sref and all 
indications are that there is an excellent setup for Post frontal 
precipitation. Strong lift ahead of the upper level low that is 
currently located near Baja California will spread over the region and work 
in conjunction with strong frontogenesis to produce an intense SW 
to NE oriented band across North Texas Wednesday night. The 
primary forecast challenge is precipitation types and amounts 
which hinge on the temperatures...not only at the surface but 
through the atmospheric column. The previous forecast looks good 
for timing of the changeover and we see no new data that suggests 
we need to bump the timing up. Although the cold air does often 
get here faster than the models indicate...our timing is ahead of 
the usually reliable rap/NAM forecasts. 


Indications from the 0z guidance continue to point toward 
convective instability being available for isolated thunderstorms 
with heavy sleet Wednesday evening. The strong lift will keep 
cooling the middle-upper levels during the evening hours and result 
in a change over to snow from northwest to southeast...and we are 
more concerned about some higher amounts of snow especially north 
and west of the dfw metroplex where 1-2 inches may fall. The 
primary axis of precipitation looks like it will occur roughly 
from Comanche to dfw to Paris...but it is tough to say just how 
much of this will be spent as rain and how much would be 
accumulating sleet or snow. The 21z sref raises concerns that more 
than 1 inch of sleet will occur within this band...and the 0z NAM 
and hi-res WRF models also show this will be the favored location 
for over a half inch of sleet. A transition to snow would occur a 
little later in the evening that may drop an additional inch of 
snow within this precipitation axis before it begins to end from 
northwest to southeast after midnight. 


Also Worth noting are the wind speeds tomorrow evening. Northwest 
winds of 20-25 miles per hour with higher gusts will work to reduce 
visibilities below a half mile in regions where a change over to 
moderate snow occurs. 


For the forecast...the main change was to bump up probability of precipitation Wednesday 
evening areawide. There were no major changes to precipitation 
type or the timing of the change-over. However given the good 
setup...we have bumped up snow/sleet amounts along and northwest of a 
line from Comanche to dfw to Paris. We are now expecting 1/4 to 
1/2 inch of sleet and 1-2 inches of snow northwest of a Eastland to 
Denton to Bonham line. For the line from Comanche to the metroplex 
to Paris...we are up to a half inch of sleet and an inch of snow. 
Amounts taper off as one heads farther south...but did bump the 
zone from Waco to Athens up to a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sleet. 


We are on the cusp of upgrading a portion of the Winter Weather 
Advisory to a Winter Storm Warning and if the 0z GFS had not come 
in with a farther southward displacement of the main quantitative precipitation forecast axis in 
comparison to the other models...we probably would have had the 
confidence to upgrade now. We will deffer any decisions to the 
next shift who will have the benefit of the European model (ecmwf)...European model (ecmwf) 
ensemble...GFS ensemble...and 3z sref. Warning or not...this 
certainly looks like it should be a high impact winter weather 
event for a good portion of the County Warning Area.

Short term... 


..another bout of winter weather Wednesday afternoon through 
Wednesday night... 


Temperatures today did not warm as much as we thought and the 
dense fog persisted somewhat longer. Still have a few locations 
with visibility below one mile...but weak showers and drizzle 
should help improve them a little before evening. But do not 
expect temperatures to cool much overnight and will keep areas of 
fog most of the night. 


The cold front was just moving into the Texas Panhandle and 
northern Oklahoma at 2 PM. Temperatures were in the teens and 20s 
behind the front over Kansas. We expect the front to cross the 
Red River just after midnight...into the I-20/30 corridor around 
daybreak and through the far southeast counties 4-5 PM. It will 
turn noticeably colder and windy behind the front. May need a Wind 
Advisory for Wednesday night if MOS guidance numbers are right. 
The freezing line will lag many hours behind the front...thus a 
precipitation transitioning to a wintry mix may not take take 
place in the northwest until middle afternoon and across the dfw 
metroplex until 5 PM. Although this is our best guess on the 
transition...an hour or two earlier would result in more serious 
travel impacts for the afternoon commute. We have issued a Winter 
Weather Advisory in three segments. One for the earlier northwest 
timing...one for the central areas including the metroplex to 
cover the late afternoon commuter impact potential and one in the 
southeast where the transition occurs later Wednesday night. 
Currently...we feel sleet amounts up to 1/2 inch and freezing rain 
amounts up to 1/10 inch are the most logical for this event. 


Nearly all of the models have come into better agreement on 
timing...transition and amounts of precipitation. The hi-res 
models are also indicating a potential for convective elements 
moving over the Post-frontal cold air Wednesday evening. Sleet 
showers would result in roads becoming covered in a shorter period 
of time. Other factors aiding this event are: strong frontogenetic 
forcing...significant lift associated with the right-rear entrance 
region of the 250 mb jet aloft and a piece of shortwave energy 
moving over the County Warning Area. 


We will be watching new data as it arrives to re-evaluate the 
potential of this system as a few minor deviations here and there 
could cause significant changes to later forecasts. 


The precipitation will shift to the southeast counties on 
Thursday morning and should end before midday. Wind chills will be 
in the middle teens to lower 20s daybreak Thursday. Highs on 
Thursday will be in the middle to upper 30s with around 40 from 
Cameron to Centerville. Expect sunshine to return to the entire 
County Warning Area by Thursday afternoon! 


&& 


Long term... 
an upper level split-pattern will be developing by late week with 
a short wave trough arriving from the west on Saturday. Temperatures 
will slowly moderate through the period...and there could be some 
light showers over the southeast counties on Saturday. Highs will 
start out in the middle 40s on Friday and warm into the 60s for 
Monday and Tuesday. Lows will be in the 20s on Friday morning...in 
the upper 20s and 30s on Saturday then warming into the 40s by Tuesday 
morning. 75
