NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
635 PM CDT Friday Apr 17 2015 


Aviation... 


For the 00z tafs...tracking the north/south oriented line of 
thunderstorms moving east towards the dfw metroplex is the primary 
forecast concern. 


The line of storms just west of Tarrant County has been losing 
intensity for the most part...and as a result has been 
consistently slowly down with regards to its easterly progress. 
The most intense part of the line is located over far southwestern 
Tarrant County...moving east now at about 20 miles per hour. For the most 
part this line of storms will be capable of producing 20 to 30 miles per hour 
wind gusts...heavy rainfall...and frequent lightning as it moves 
over area taf sites. 


The more intense line of storms over far southern Tarrant County 
will be capable of producing wind gusts of 40 to 45 miles per hour as well as 
heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. This more intense line of 
storms appears on track to move over kgky Airport...remaining just 
south of kftw...kdfw...kafw...and kdal airports. 


Will likely have to keep amending the tafs for timing 
considerations as the storms roll across the dfw area. Behind the 
main line of storms...light rain showers are expected to persist 
for a couple of hours before all precipitation ends across the dfw 
area. 


Other than storms...IFR ceilings are expected to build over north and 
central Texas from the south early tomorrow morning. Did not see 
any reason to change the timing of the onset of IFR ceilings from the 
previous forecast...but may need to adjust the timing once storms 
have dissipated...allowing for an evaluation of where outflow 
boundaries end up. Did not have enough confidence in the timing of 
storms on Saturday to include them in the tafs at this time. 
Storms may once again threaten area taf sites tomorrow afternoon 
or evening.

Previous discussion... /issued 310 PM CDT Friday Apr 17 2015/ 
a shortwave trough axis is now moving through Texas and upper 
level lift is increasing over the region. As this lift interacts 
with an axis of uncapped instability from roughly Wichita Falls to 
Abilene and south into the lower Rio Grande Valley...scattered to 
numerous thunderstorms have developed. While storm motion has been 
generally northward...it appears that cold pools are beginning to 
organize beneath the stronger clusters of storms with more 
eastward motions noted with the cells in the northwest County Warning Area near 
Graham...as well as the storm segments west and also south of San 
Antonio. As the cold pools continue to develop... the eastward 
motion will accelerate. Probability of precipitation will be highest this evening for the 
northern part of the County Warning Area and also the southern part of the County Warning Area. 
This is where the small line segments or clusters of storms are 
most likely to track near. There is a chance a gap in the activity 
will occur right across the central County Warning Area primarily due to the storm 
clusters in south central Texas increasing in strength and 
intercepting the best moisture and instability across our area. 
Many locations will just experience light rain from anvil blow off 
but where storms do track...well over 2 inches of rain is possible. 
This activity will track mostly east of County Warning Area after midnight. 


Surface based instability across North Texas is not very high 
today...with local objective guidance showing generally only a few 
hundred j/kg of energy. However instability just above the surface 
is much higher...ranging from 1000-2000 j/kg...so the strongest 
cells will have enough instability for a severe hail and wind 
threat. The Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues through 7 PM for 
generally the western half of the County Warning Area. We and Storm Prediction Center will assess 
storm trends before determining whether the a new severe watch 
will be needed farther east this evening. 


The atmosphere on Saturday will probably end up being significantly 
worked over from the ongoing convection this evening and overnight. 
Most models do forecast a strong mesoscale convective system to 
track eastward through the Upper Texas coast and out into the northwest 
Gulf by early morning...and given current radar trends across 
south central Texas this seems likely. Often the subsidence in 
the wake of an mesoscale convective system is not forecast well by computer models...and 
this subsidence can extend several hundred miles northwest of the 
parent mesoscale convective system. In addition...the primary shortwave trough axis also 
exits to our east...and as a result the flow from the surface up 
to 700mb becomes very weak and disorganized. This flow will 
inhibit a replenishment of quality Gulf moisture back into the 
region. Have lowered probability of precipitation a little for Saturday due to these 
concerns. Having said that...the airmass will become weakly capped 
and unstable by the afternoon hours with heating...and a dryline 
will also approach the western zones. Therefore we do expect a few 
showers and storms to fire across the western zones in the 
afternoon...and track generally northeastward into the evening 
hours. Again coverage will not be especially high...but there is a 
low threat of severe wind/hail with this activity as adequate deep 
layer shear and instability will exist. 


A cold front will track across the region during the day on Sunday 
and with south winds veering to the northwest during the midday 
and afternoon hours...this should result in warm subsident 
downslope flow. Temperatures will reach the 80s in most areas of 
North Texas under sunny skies...and some temperatures near 90 may occur 
across central Texas. Will add in a slight chance of afternoon 
showers/storms over the far southeast zones where a moderately 
unstable airmass will develop ahead of the front during the 
afternoon hours. 


Cooler and drier air will spread into the region Sunday night and 
into Monday. Temperatures will drop into the middle 40s to middle 50s for lows 
with highs only in the low to middle 70s Monday. Return flow will set 
up during the day Tuesday...but it appears model guidance is a bit 
too aggressive with quantitative precipitation forecast and have kept the forecast dry except for 
generally the western zones. 


Upper level westerly flow will continue over Texas from middle week 
into next weekend. This does not lend much confidence in trying to 
time the primary shortwave disturbances or determining when/whether 
weak cold fronts will be able to make it into the County Warning Area. For now 
have kept probability of precipitation low due to these concerns...but it appears 
Wednesday night through Thursday night offer the slightly better 
chances of rainfall. This is when the models are forecasting a 
weak cold front to drop into the area from the northeast. Temperatures 
from middle to late week will return to the upper 70s and near 80 for 
highs with overnight lows muggy and in the 60s. The GFS shows 
another front pushing through the region by Friday which scours 
out our moisture...but the European model (ecmwf) has no such front and continues 
chances of rain. Due to the discrepancy have dialed probability of precipitation down to 
just a slight chance next Friday.
