Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
655 am CDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014 


Aviation... 
/12z tafs/ 


MVFR ceilings...especially at Waco this morning...then all sites 
Thursday morning to be problematic. Otherwise no major concerns. 


A middle level disturbance will continue weakening as it lifts 
northeast of the Red River this a.M. A 30 kt+ low level jet to the east of 
this feature will continue to support showers to the north of dfw 
this morning and will leave vcsh out for now. MVFR ceilings streaming 
north over The Hill Country and central Texas could briefly impact 
Waco by middle morning and will carry a tempo group. South winds 
around 10 kts this morning will become southeast around 15 kts 
this afternoon and should continue through this evening. 


A slightly stronger low level jet between 30-40 kts will develop late 
tonight and should allow for MVFR ceilings to push into the I-20 
corridor after sunrise Thursday. Have decided to not mention MVFR 
at dfw area airports for Thursday morning until timing becomes 
better define. I will advertise MVFR ceilings into Waco right before 
sunrise. South-southeast winds 10-15 kts will continue Thursday 
with gusts to 20 kts possible by afternoon.

Previous discussion... /issued 419 am CDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014/ 
a few light showers north of the I-20 corridor are associated with 
an exiting middle-level impulse. Much of what appears on radar is middle 
cloud within this area of lift...but a few sprinkles are likely 
reaching the ground. This activity will gradually shift northward 
into Oklahoma this morning. 


While the exiting disturbance might suggest subsidence will 
dominate today...synoptic scale vertical motion will be rather 
neutral today. As skies clear...and the August sun heats the 
surface layer...the lack of inhibition could allow for another 
round of isolated/disorganized convection. However...intensifying 
Lee troughing will result in southerly winds near or in excess of 
15 miles per hour...which should assure any lingering outflow boundaries are 
effectively obliterated. The only area of concern will be in the 
far southeast...where temperatures in the middle to upper 90s will 
coincide with dew points near 70f. But even with minimal 
inhibition...this instability is unlikely to be realized unless 
outflow from sea breeze activity upstream is able to mechanically 
lift the surface layer. 


By Thursday...a strengthening ridge over the southeastern states 
will begin to impinge on Texas. Its influence will persist into 
next week. But with the rather Ordinary Summer ridge centered well 
to our east...mid-level heights will not be extraordinary for 
August. Afternoon highs will still exceed normal values...climbing 
into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees. Mitigating factors for the 
heat will be (1) a steady southerly breeze due to persistent Lee 
troughing and (2) dew points mixing out into the 50s west of I-35. 


Extended guidance suggests the upper tropical trough responsible 
for the unsettled weather in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico could 
ride over the western periphery of the middle-level ridge this 
weekend. It looks as though large-scale subsidence beneath it 
should effectively stifle it...but with little else to keep US 
entertained...it may bear watching. The next legitimate chance 
for rain will be Monday or Tuesday when the low-level wind field 
weakens and the sea breeze may be able to reactivate. For now... 
only introduced hidden 10 probability of precipitation.
