NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
243 PM CDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Discussion... 


Early afternoon visible satellite imagery showed scattered surface 
based cumulus clouds in place across north and central Texas. For 
the most part, the cumulus field had very little vertical 
development...so think that most locations will remain dry through 
sunset. Across central Texas...just south of Temple and Killeen... 
the cumulus field was more clustered and taller in nature...very 
similar in appearance to the cloud field around Austin where 
isolated showers and thunderstorms were developing as of 2 PM CDT. 


Went ahead and mentioned a 20 percent chance of storms through 
late this afternoon across portions of Lampasas and Bell counties 
as a result. Kept the 20 percent chance of storms in place over 
the far eastern County Warning Area as well through late this afternoon as there 
were some isolated showers and storms developing across far East 
Texas as well at 2 PM. If this activity continues...cannot rule 
out an isolated storm getting very tall in a short amount of time 
before collapsing as cool outflow quickly undercuts the updraft. 
Brief heavy rain, cloud to ground lightning, and locally strong 
wind gusts could all be in play if thunderstorms develop across 
southern central Texas, or eastern North Texas for the remainder 
of the afternoon. 


Water vapor satellite imagery shows broad anticyclonic flow 
centered over the High Plains early this afternoon...fanning out 
over most of the County Warning Area. With weak subsidence in the large scale flow 
think that any isolated rain shower or thunderstorm that develops 
will dissipate after sunset. Have a dry forecast for this evening 
and overnight with upper level ridging expected to hold in place. 


For Monday...a strong shortwave trough currently over the far 
northwestern Continental U.S. Early this afternoon is expected to move east 
over the Dakotas on Monday. This will help push the weak upper 
level ridge over the High Plains southeast over the County Warning Area for 
tomorrow. With the upper level ridge axis expected to be directly 
over the County Warning Area...maintained a dry and warm forecast for the entire 
area through tomorrow evening. 


As the shortwave trough continues east of the plains Monday 
night...a cold front is expected to surge south along the High 
Plains and move towards North Texas. With the bulk of the upper 
level energy moving quickly east of the plains...there is 
virtually no chance that the front would make it to North Texas 
based on the surge of cool air associated with the upper level 
energy alone. If the front is going to make it to North Texas...it 
will only do so if there are enough storms along the front to 
produce a sufficient amount of rain cooled air to help keep the 
front moving south or southeast Monday night into Tuesday morning. 


Previous days European model (ecmwf)/GFS/Canadian solutions had been advertising 
that there will be enough rain along the front to bring it south 
over the County Warning Area by Tuesday morning. However the consensus of today's 
12z guidance indicates that the front will stall out a bit shy of 
reaching the County Warning Area...holding up closer to Wichita Falls than to the 
dfw area. If the front does stall out farther northwest than what 
has been advertised in the models the past couple of days...the 
best rain chances will tend to remain closer to Wichita Falls than 
to the dfw area as well. Because the southern push of the front 
seems strongly dependent on the coverage and intensity of storms 
that have not yet developed...there is really no observational 
evidence to support one solution over the other at this time. 


Local area climatology would indicate that summertime cold fronts 
in North Texas are rare...so would not be surprised at all to see 
the front stall out before making into into the County Warning Area early Tuesday 
morning. Wherever the front stalls out...it is expected to remain 
in place for at least 24 hours...so there will likely be some 
flooding/flash flooding concerns near the front once it stalls out 
for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. As it stands right 
now...kept the highest probability of precipitation of around 40 percent northwest of the 
dfw area and dropped probability of precipitation to 10 to 20 percent for locations along 
and southeast of a line from Cisco to Sherman...including the dfw 
metroplex. 


Will have to closely monitor the thunderstorm coverage along the 
front Monday and Monday night and adjust probability of precipitation according to how 
close the front gets to North Texas before stalling out. Think 
that it is more likely for the front to stall out before getting 
into the County Warning Area...but will wait for observational data to back this 
up before removing a chance of storms from the forecast. In the 
unlikely event that the front is faster than forecast...would have 
to significantly increase probability of precipitation for most locations as numerous 
storms are expected to develop and train along the stalled out 
frontal boundary from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. 


Thursday through early next week...the stalled out frontal 
boundary is expected to weaken while moving north away from North 
Texas on Thursday. Upper level ridging is expected to slowly build 
over the region and intensify through the weekend. Assuming this 
pattern shift takes place...expect the heat to slowly build over 
the region with low rain chances due to large scale subsidence in 
place. Kept some 10 probability of precipitation in place over the southeastern County Warning Area during 
this period as the GFS and European model (ecmwf) show some diurnally driven quantitative precipitation forecast 
each day along what could be a sea-breeze boundary working its way 
inland from the Gulf Coast. Even if this activity pans out...it 
will likely remain southeast of the County Warning Area before dissipating at 
sunset each day. If the sea-breeze proves to move faster than 
expected and subsidence is a bit weaker than expected...may have 
to add thunderstorms to the forecast during the afternoon hours of 
the day across the southeast in later forecasts. 


Highs during this period are expected to remain higher west of 
I-35 each day where low-level moisture is expected to mix out the 
most. Highs west of I-35 will start in the middle 90s and should 
creep up to 100 degrees by Sunday. Elsewhere highs should start 
out in the lower to middle 90s and climb up to just shy of 100 
degrees by early next week.

Aviation... 
/issued 1235 PM CDT sun Jul 5 2015/ 


Concerns...return of MVFR ceilings late tonight and strong south winds. 


We expect MVFR conditions to spread north over the region late 
tonight as a 35-40 knots low level jet develops. MVFR ceilings should reach kact 
around 09z and the metroplex around 11z. Ceilings transitioning to VFR 
around 17z Monday. 


A tightening pressure gradient will keep winds southerly 
14g20 knots this afternoon and overnight...then increasing to 
18-23 knots with higher gusts on Monday. 75
