NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
330 am CST sun Nov 23 2014 


Discussion... 
the deep upper trough that was responsible for widespread rainfall 
across North Texas yesterday is currently located south of the 
area along the Texas coast. All of the rainfall has moved east of 
North Texas this morning with some remnant cloud cover persisting. 
Some patchy fog is also occurring in areas where winds have gone 
calm and where there is a lack of high cloudiness. Otherwise... 
partly to mostly cloudy skies prevail across North Texas with 
temperatures in the middle 50s. 


Water vapor imagery shows another upstream shortwave which is 
moving through the intermountain west this morning. This feature 
has already induced a Lee side cyclone over far southeast 
Colorado. This is important for todays weather in North Texas 
because as the upper trough digs into the Southern Plains...the 
surface low will continue to deepen and move across central 
Oklahoma. As it does...surface pressures will continue to fall 
across North Texas...resulting in a tight gradient across the 
region. These winds will primarily be westerly through middle 
afternoon before becoming northwest as a cold front moves into 
North Texas. The most significant concern today will be exactly 
how high the winds get. With strong wind fields aloft associated 
with the upper trough...any deep mixing could result in gusts 
approaching 40 miles per hour. The latest GFS lamp guidance suggests that 
this might happen...forecasting winds of 30g40kt at dfw late this 
afternoon. This would cause some issues at area airports if it 
pans out. The remainder of the guidance is not quite as aggressive 
on winds...so will tone things down just a bit. Thinking is that 
the highest winds will occur middle/late afternoon with the arrival 
of the cold front. This is when lapse rates are steepest and there 
is a good push of cold advection into the region. Current forecast 
will show gusts approaching 40 miles per hour but this should be of short 
duration as a surface inversion starts to develop after dark. We 
will have a Wind Advisory for the northern half of North Texas 
starting at 2 PM and continuing until 8 PM. 


With westerly winds initially this afternoon...temperatures are 
likely to warm considerably under mostly sunny skies. Will have 
highs in the middle 70s across much of North Texas. Temperatures will be a 
little cooler near the Red River. 


Colder air will filter in behind the front this evening...so highs 
on Monday will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler. A secondary front moves 
in Tuesday with highs right around 60 degrees which is a little 
below normal for this time of year. 


Medium range guidance is in good agreement with a dry week ahead 
and there is some indication that we will warm up rather nicely by 
the end of the week. Broad ridging dominates the western U.S. 
Wednesday through Friday with southwest flow aloft to about 700mb. 
This suggests that temperatures will steadily climb through the 
end of the week. GFS MOS numbers show highs reaching the middle 70s 
by the end of the week. We wont go quite that warm yet but will 
show highs warming into the upper 60s for Thanksgiving into Friday.

Aviation... 
/issued 1214 am CST sun Nov 23 2014/ 
primary concern is a potential for low ceilings/visibility through the early 
morning hours and strong Crosswinds Sunday. 


Ceilings/visibility tonight... 
rain has ended and VFR conditions prevail over the region right 
now. The low levels remain nearly saturated which raises concern 
that fog or low clouds will redevelop during the next few hours as 
drying occurs aloft and enhances radiational cooling above the 
moist layer. Will bring MVFR ceilings/visibility in at 9z/3am with a tempo 
for IFR ceilings. However with surface winds becoming light 
southwest...it should prevent dense fog from forming. The shallow 
moisture means that any clouds/fog should clear out quickly after 
sunrise. VFR and generally clear skies will prevail thereafter. 


Crosswinds Sunday afternoon and evening... 
momentum Transfer of stronger winds aloft down to the surface 
will be responsible for the high winds. Thus we will have to wait 
for lapse rates to become steep enough for this Transfer to occur. 
Model guidance is now in good agreement in showing the nearly dry 
adiabatic lapse rates not occurring until late Sunday afternoon 
when a shot of strong cold advection moves through with a cold 
front. Thus the strong winds will likely not occur until after 
22z/4pm and persist into the early evening hours when they should 
gradually diminish after 2z/8pm. The wind direction should also be 
from about 300 degrees when the strongest winds occur which should 
allow full use of runways 31r/l and at least some use of the north-S 
runways. The GFS continues to be the strongest with the winds and 
lamp guidance is indicating sustained 32g41kt at 0z. Since all of 
the other guidance is lower than this...have instead forecast 
24g34kt...but this will continue to be monitored. 


During the late morning through middle afternoon hours Sunday...have 
lowered wind speeds from previous forecast to 17kt due to less 
steep lapse rates and more limited mixing. Wind direction during 
this time will be west/SW but speeds should be just low enough to 
preclude a significant flow disruption during this time frame.
