Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:23 am CST on March 2, 2015


... Winter weather possible across North Texas mid week...

A cold Arctic airmass will spread south across north and central
Texas on Wednesday following the passage of a strong cold front.
With cold air already in place... an upper level disturbance will
generate mostly light precipitation across the region as it
approaches from the southwest. Rain will mix with and then changeover
to sleet across much of the region by the afternoon or evening
hours Wednesday. Some snow may mix with sleet Wednesday night
into Thursday morning... and some freezing rain will be a
possibility over the southeastern-most counties Wednesday night
and Thursday morning. Precipitation should come to an end by
Thursday afternoon as the upper level system moves east of the
region.

* Location... all of North Texas

* timing... Wednesday across mainly the northern half of North
Texas. Wednesday night across all of North Texas. Thursday
morning across mainly the southern half of North Texas.

* Precipitation type... mainly sleet... with some snow and freezing
rain possible.

* Accumulation and impacts... accumulations remain uncertain at
this time... but with temperatures dropping below freezing during
the afternoon it would take little to produce deteriorating Road
conditions and some travel delays by Wednesday evening.

Please monitor future forecasts regarding the potential for
winter weather across North Texas Wednesday through Thursday.

... Waco climate narrative for February 2015...

It was a colder than normal February across central Texas. The
average high at Waco was 58.0 degrees (3.8 degrees below normal).
The average low was 35.2 (4.6 degrees below normal). This resulted
in an average temperature of 46.6 degrees which is 4.2 degrees below
normal. We weren't cold for the whole month as highs reached at
least 70 degrees on 6 days including February 9th when the high was
80 degrees! Of course, the cold weather was the bigger story. The
last week of the month brought US 4 days when the high didn't rise
out of the 30s. Three of these days... Feb 23rd... 27th and 28th set
daily record coldest high temperatures.

Waco had a drier than normal February. The monthly rainfall total
was 1.25 inches which was 1.38 inches below normal. Most of the
month was very dry as only a trace of precipitation had fallen
through the first 3 weeks of February. We received all of our
measurable precipitation during the last week of the month.

Waco received 0.7 inches of snow for the month... which fell on
February 25th. Trace amounts occurred on 3 other days. All of our
measurable snow for the season so far occurred in February.

The overall December through February winter period was colder and
slightly drier than normal. Waco has a warmer than normal December
(average monthly temperature was 2.7 degrees above normal) but had a
colder than normal January (2.7 degrees below normal) and February
(4.2 degrees below normal). The average temperature was 47.4
degrees which puts US in a tie for the 28th coldest out of the 114
Winters on record at Waco.

The December through February precipitation total was 5.27 inches
which is 2.23 inches below normal. This was waco's 34th driest
winter on record. December was much drier than normal (2.21 below
normal), followed by a wetter than normal January (1.36 inches above
normal) and a drier than normal February (1.38 inches below normal).

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1225 PM CST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Aviation... 


For the 18z tafs...the duration of IFR ceilings and visibilities is the 
primary forecast concern. 


Cloud heights were generally ranging from 3 to 5 hundred feet 
above ground level across North Texas at noon/18z. Hrrr forecast 
soundings indicate shallow lift will persist in the lowest few 
thousand feet of the atmosphere today...which does not Bode well 
for the prospects of having cloud heights climb much throughout the 
day today. Despite the cloud cover...there is still some heating 
at the surface. Despite persistent northeasterly winds at the 
surface...there is no strong cold air advection...so think 
temperatures will rise to around 40 degrees or just above for 
today's high. However...recent widespread snow/sleet melt across 
the dfw area has left the ground very damp. Current thinking is 
that any increase in temperature will be met with an increase in 
dew point due to evaporation keeping ceiling heights more or less 
steady throughout the daylight hours today. 


For tonight...think that cloud heights and visibilities will tend 
to remain stable. A strong low-level jet is expected to develop by 
early tomorrow morning which should start to provide enough low- 
level warm air advection to lower the near surface stability 
profiles a bit. Even if we maintain some inversion...a smaller 
depth of the inversion combined with the stronger winds aloft 
should promote some better mixing that results in an increase in 
cloud heights towards 1000 feet above ground level. Went with a few hours of 
low-level wind shear in the tafs tomorrow morning to account for 
the low-level jet...and then slowly improved ceilings throughout the 
day on Tuesday. 


What to watch for...as dew points climb on the nose of the low- 
level jet and warm air increases in intensity...there is some 
potential for advection fog if near surface winds can remain 
decoupled from the influence of the low-level jet. Confidence in 
this was not high enough to bring visibilities down to one half 
mile or below tomorrow morning with the onset of the stronger warm 
air advection...however this is something we'll be watching 
closely over the next 12-18 hours.

Previous discussion... /issued 1131 am CST Monday Mar 2 2015/ 


Morning kfwd sounding shows the swallow Arctic air continuing to 
modify slowly overnight with a Sharpe inversion now around 1200 
feet and around 50 degrees (10c) at 850 mb (5000 feet). As a 
result our low clouds will hang in today with high temperatures 
only 5 to 9 degrees above the morning lows. Coolest highs will be 
over the northwest counties where snowfall was heaviest. As winds 
veer east and southeast overnight...we will see dewpoints begin to 
rise as a warm front nears from the south. We will likely see fog 
across most of the County Warning Area tonight. 


First look at the morning models do not show any major changes 
needed. We/ll be working on Wednesday afternoon through Thursday 
morning precipitation type and amounts for the afternoon package. 75
