NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
432 PM CST Friday Feb 27 2015 


Update... 
a band of moderate to heavy snow continues to develop between 
Decatur...Denton and the Red River late this afternoon in an area 
of enhanced instability. This area has already received up to 5 
inches of snow and has the potential to receive appreciable snow 
amounts over the next several hours with snow totals up to 8 
inches possible. With this in mind...we will issue a small Winter 
Storm Warning to account for the higher snow totals. The warning 
will be for wise...Denton...Cooke and Grayson and will be valid 
until 6 PM Saturday. No other changes are necessary at this time.

Previous discussion... /issued 404 PM CST Friday Feb 27 2015/ 


..Winter Weather Advisory will remain for light snow... 
Transitioning to freezing drizzle/light freezing rain overnight 
into Saturday... 


..southern zones...Added to a Winter Weather Advisory from 6 PM 
tonight until noon Saturday for a mix of light snow and light 
freezing drizzle.... 


The area of light to occasionally moderate snow currently east of 
a line from about Bowie to Granbury will continue moving 
east/northeast through late afternoon with the departing short 
wave. This should produce an additional one half to one inch of 
snow...especially between Decatur...Fort Worth and the Red River with 
a few isolated higher amounts. Behind this main line...some light 
snow or flurries will linger through the evening but should add 
little to the current snow accumulations. When all is said and 
done...snow totals should average between 2 and 5 inches from the 
Interstate 20 corridor northward with between one half inch and 2 
inches in all but the southeast third of the region. 


Central Texas radars currently show an increasing feed of low 
level moisture in the form of mainly light rain and drizzle across 
the Texas Hill country. This moisture will continue to advance 
northward into North Texas overnight while surface temperatures either 
remain or fall below freezing. This will result in mainly light 
freezing drizzle across the entire region. The only exception will 
be the southeast zones which are currently above freezing and 
should not fall below freezing until later this evening or 
overnight. We have decided to add these southern zones to a Winter 
Weather Advisory tonight into Saturday morning...mainly for 
freezing drizzle...possibly mixed with light snow during the 
evening. Since large scale lift will be very weak...we do not 
anticipate freezing rain and significant ice accumulations. 
However...even an additional light glaze from freezing drizzle 
will result in or add to ongoing travel problems. 


The warm layer will continue to increase on Saturday and 
precipitation should transition to light rain from south to north 
as surface temperatures warm above freezing. We are a bit 
concerned that freezing temperatures will linger through middle 
afternoon in many locations due to the current snow coverage in 
the north and the expected cloud cover. Therefore...we will carry 
the Winter Weather Advisory until 6 PM Saturday for all but the 
southeast zones. In the southeast zones we will run the advisory 
until noon Saturday. 


Surface temperatures should slowly warm Saturday night through 
Sunday morning as southeast surface winds return. Other than some 
weak perturbations in west to southwest flow aloft...we do not 
anticipate any major source of large scale lift so will only keep 
some chance probability of precipitation for light rain. Some patchy fog is also possible 
Saturday night through Sunday. 


A cold front will approach the Red River on Sunday and may sneak 
into the northern zones as per the NAM and European model (ecmwf) solutions. The 
front may provide additional lift for some light rain as well as 
bring cooler temperatures. Have decided to go with a blend of the 
solutions regarding highs on Sunday so will lower the northern 
zones highs to the middle and upper 40s with mainly 50s and 60s 
elsewhere/ 


North Texas will stay in a very unsettled weather pattern through 
the middle of the week as an upper low moves east from the Pacific 
and merges with a northern branch upper trough to form a deep long 
wave trough. The response across North Texas ahead of this 
developing system will be and increase in low level moisture 
Monday through Tuesday with increasing instability. It look likes 
the best chance for thunderstorms will be Tuesday afternoon/Tuesday 
evening. 


Storms should end from north to south Tuesday night with the 
passage of another strong cold front. It appears that another 
chance for winter precipitation will be possible behind the front on 
Wednesday. Right now sleet appears to be the primary precipitation type. 
Any Post frontal precipitation should end Wednesday night with dry 
northwest flow expected Thursday through Friday.
