NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1235 PM CDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Aviation... 
VFR through this evening. Winds will remain out of the south for 
the entire taf period. Scattered thunderstorms will occur this 
evening (23-02z)...so thunderstorms in the vicinity was kept for that time period. Models 
indicate there will be more stratus Thursday morning...MVFR ceilings 
9-15z. 


78 


&& 


Update... 
minimal changes were made to the forecast this morning. High 
temperatures for today were modified slightly to account for 
current trends...and the placement of the higher rain chances were 
shifted southwest...based off of the morning surface analysis and 
short term model guidance. 


A subtle surface boundary was draped across North Texas at 15z... 
roughly from Canton...to Terrell...to Fort Worth...which is 
dividing the slightly more moisture rich air. The strongest surge 
of low level moisture is occurring in west and central Texas...but 
our dewpoints aren't too shabby either...sitting in the 60s...and 
will continue to climb as southeasterly winds pump moisture into 
the area. Short term model guidance also shows cape values 
surging upwards this afternoon across West Texas. As such...have 
lower probability of precipitation in our northeast zones and raised them in the 
southwest. Upper level support is not strong today...but the 
mesoscale features coupled with the moisture and instability will 
likely provide another round of showers and thunderstorms this 
afternoon. Damaging winds...large hail...and heavy rainfall would 
all be threats with any storm that is able to get going today. 


Ajs 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 354 am CDT Wednesday may 27 2015/ 
similar to Monday evening and yesterday morning...we continue to 
monitor a linear mesoscale convective system exiting the region. This mesoscale convective system has been weaker 
and slower as it has become cold pool driven across our central 
Texas counties and will still have hydrological impacts through 
sunrise across that area. We should see enough inhibition from 
subsidence behind this mesoscale feature for mainly isolated 
activity later this morning...though will hold higher chances 
across our far southern counties for mesoscale convective system mesoscale remnants moving 
east/southeast across those areas. 


More shortwave energy currently over the southern High Plains 
will ripple across the area this coming afternoon and evening once 
again. As the environment recovers with daytime heating and 
redestabilizes this afternoon...we expect more scattered storms 
with localized heavy rainfall to develop. Despite this...we do not 
feel any heavy rain will be widespread and will forego any Flash 
Flood Watch issuance at this time after coordination with 
surrounding offices. We/ll advertise our best chances across the 
NE half of the County Warning Area today as it appears an outflow boundary will 
surge out of Oklahoma during the afternoon hours. High resolution 
short term models are even struggling in this moist and 
progressive regime and confidence is not very high on coverage and 
timing. Finally...it appears much of the area will be under a 
slight risk for severe storms once again this afternoon and 
evening with large hail...damaging winds...and locally heavy 
rain/flooding being the main threats. However...a brief tornado or 
two cannot be discounted through this evening with subtle outflow 
boundaries around today. 


Thursday morning should be similar to this morning with a 
reprieve in convective activity. The reprieve will be short-lived 
however... with another substantial shortwave disturbance arriving 
Thursday afternoon and night with another potential mesoscale convective system late 
Thursday night into Friday morning. Later Friday...Friday night 
and into Saturday morning...it appears a similar scenario unfolds 
with more widespread heavy rains occurring especially during the 
nocturnal hours with any mesoscale convective system/S that move through. This will likely 
be the time frame for a future Flash Flood Watch issuance with 
greater areal coverage of heavier rains. Confidence regarding 
severe weather remains low during this period and will be refined 
in future forecasts and discussions. 


The main longwave trough appears to finally lift east across the 
plains this coming weekend and will help to usher in a weak late 
season cold front into the area. Scattered rain chances will 
continue even behind the front with moisture lingering over the 
area...but should wane from north to south on Sunday/Sunday night 
with an upper ridge to the west expanding eastward toward the area 
per the Canadian and European models. However...the GFS still 
wants to linger a weak...cut off upper low over the arklatex to 
our east. Will follow the former models on the forecast for now 
but if the GFS pans out...low rain chances may linger across the 
eastern County Warning Area into early next week. Either way...think many of US 
are looking forward to this longwave pattern shift and an 
opportunity for the entire area to dry out somewhat as we move 
into early June.
