NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
559 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Aviation... 
winds will be on the increase later this morning as a strong 
surface ridge surges south from the plains to central Texas. 
Northwest winds around 15 knots are expected to increase to 20-25 knots 
with gusts 30-35 knots later this morning and continue through the 
late afternoon hours. Wind gusts may approach Airport weather 
warning criteria...with the most likely time being 18-22z when the 
best low level mixing will occur. Fire weather conditions will 
become critical today...and the red flag warning issued earlier 
includes both the dfw area and the Waco area. Winds will begin to 
decrease by 00z and should be in the 12-15 knots range around 09/02z. 


The middle-level cloud deck near the Red River earlier has all but 
eroded...and any remaining clouds should be limited to high 
cirrus for the rest of the day. Otherwise...VFR conditions 
can be expected area-wide through the forecast period.

Previous discussion... /issued 416 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016/ 
Arctic air is plunging through the upper Midwest and will continue 
pushing south today. With unseasonably strong ridging across the 
western states...the slope of the height fields across the central 
states will steepen...and the associated jet will intensify as it 
digs south in response. Over North Texas...500mb winds will exceed 
100kts today. Within 2 miles of the surface...wind speeds will 
approach 80kts. As the mixing depth deepens this morning...some of 
this northwesterly momentum will reach the surface. The Wind 
Advisory speed criterion of sustained 25mph should be met 
throughout the region. Peak gusts will exceed 40mph in some areas. 


The cold advection will be somewhat offset by downslope warming... 
but daytime temperatures will be below normal throughout the 
region. Despite the cool air...the gusty winds and relative 
humidity below 25 percent will yield critical fire weather 
conditions this afternoon. The abundant autumn growth is now 
dormant...and this vegetation would be the first to initiate fire. 
Although there is some green cold season growth that will be more 
resistant to fire spread...the winds will make any potential 
wildfires difficult to contain today. A red flag warning has been 
issued for areas along and west of a line from Gainesville...to 
Dallas...to Centerville. Elevated fire weather conditions are 
expected to the east of this line. 


The winds will steadily subside this evening...and temperatures 
will fall to near freezing Tuesday morning. Northerly winds will 
prevail on Tuesday...but as middle-level heights rise here and 
upstream...the downslope warming will exceed the diminishing 
thermal advection. As a result...many areas will reach the 60s 
Tuesday afternoon. 


The warming trend will continue Wednesday and Thursday. With 
unseasonably strong ridging...balmy 850mb temperatures...and 
southwesterly surface winds ahead of an approaching front... 
Thursday will be the warmest day of the week. The front may cross 
the Red River Thursday afternoon...but the bulk of the region will 
reach peak heating before the colder air arrives Thursday night. 
With persistent northerly flow aloft and negligible moisture 
return in the low levels...this frontal passage looks Bone dry. 
Cooler weather will follow on Friday and Saturday...but southern 
and western zones may still exceed normal values for mid-February. 


Breezy south winds will return on Valentines day...but Gulf 
moisture will be rather paltry in advance of the subsequent 
frontal passage early next week. The European model (ecmwf) is the most bullish 
with a shortwave in northwest flow and corresponding 
precipitation...but this event remains beyond the current 7-day 
forecast.
