Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
624 am CDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Aviation... 
/12z tafs/ 


VFR conditions will prevail across North Texas through the period 
with light winds becoming easterly with the approach of a cold 
front. The front will be weak as far as temperatures and winds are 
concerned. A little more moisture is expected this afternoon so 
there may be a bigger cumulus field around this afternoon. A few storms 
may develop this afternoon and again on Friday but coverage is 
expected to be less than 30 percent.

Previous discussion... /issued 300 am CDT Thursday Jul 30 2015/ 
surface analysis early this morning revealed an ill-defined cold 
front across Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. The leading edge was 
denoted by little more than a wind shift. Drier and cooler air was 
well behind the initial wind shift and currently located across 
the Central Plains. 


The front will move slowly into the northeast portion of North 
Texas this morning and across most of the region by this 
afternoon. The passage of the front will not be obvious but rather 
a gradual wind shift to the northeast. Moisture will pool just 
behind the front and offset daytime mixing of drier air from 
above. This will result in a hot and humid day with afternoon 
highs at or just above yesterdays readings. Heat index values will 
actually be higher in most locations this afternoon due to the 
moisture behind the front. Many locations will see heat index 
values between 103 and 106 this afternoon. Since heat index values 
will be significantly lower on Friday...we will not issue a heat 
advisory. One other factor that will make today seem hotter than 
the last several will be relatively light winds. 


High res models seem to have a good handle on the cold front and 
expected moisture increase. Nearly all model solutions develop 
isolated showers/storms across the eastern half of the region 
this afternoon/evening. We will keep only slight chances 
mentioned since large scale subsidence will still be working 
against the smaller scale forcing for ascent. 


Large scale subsidence will decrease on Friday as the upper ridge 
builds to the west. This will result in increased cloud cover and 
slightly better rain chances. The drier and cooler air that is 
currently across the Central Plains will finally start to work in 
from the north/northeast Friday and this will keep afternoon 
temperatures/heat index values lower than today. 


A few showers and storms may linger in the west Friday 
night/Saturday morning. However...increasing cool/dry air 
advection across the region should make for a pleasant 
night/morning. Low temperatures Saturday morning will be in the 
lower and middle 70s. Highs Saturday will be generally in the 
middle 90s...except for a few upper 90s in the extreme south. 


The upper ridge axis will slide back to the east early next week 
and this will bring increasing temperatures and decreasing rain 
chances. Triple digit temperatures will most likely return to 
some of North Texas by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
