NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
702 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


Aviation... 
the thunderstorm cluster between ksps /Wichita Falls/...kabi 
/Abilene/....and kmwl /Mineral Wells/ will continue to move east 
while some of the cells on the southern end of the area are 
turning to the right. The strongest storms will move south of the 
metroplex taf sites. Have placed thunderstorms in the vicinity in the metroplex tafs for 
the 02-04z period...and will update later as needed. Note that 
even though the storms are over 60 miles west of kdfw...anvil 
lightning is noted as far east as Tarrant County. 


MVFR ceilings are expected to develop by midnight CDT /05z/ 
with IFR ceilings along with areas of fog by 09z. 
An improvement to MVFR should occur by 16z Wednesday...with VFR 
conditions returning by 20z. There is a low chance of thunderstorms 
Wednesday afternoon/early evening...so have placed thunderstorms in the vicinity for the 
27/20z-28/01z period.

Previous discussion... /issued 320 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015/ 
a continuation of the active weather pattern is expected through 
at least the first part of next week...as several embedded 
shortwaves ride along the upper level trough situated over the 
western Continental U.S.. rain chances remain in the forecast through Monday 
with temperatures near to slightly below seasonal normals. Upper 
level ridging appears to move into North Texas by Tuesday of next 
week...which would give US some reprieve from the showers and 
storms by mid-week. 


The morning fog/drizzle has dissipated across the region...and 
the low clouds have begun to lift and scatter out. This has 
allowed ample sunshine to filter into the area...which has 
increased the temperatures and instability across North Texas. 
Cape values have already risen to over 2000 j/kg across much of 
north and central Texas. Additionally...a broad dry line is 
presently draped across West Texas and into the Texas 
Panhandle...and another surface boundary was present across 
western North Texas. Both features provide confluence and will 
lead to storm initiation this afternoon. With breezy southerly 
flow across north and central Texas today...dewpoints have climbed 
into the upper 60s to lower 70s as well. These ingredients combine 
to increase storm chances across our area this afternoon and 
evening. The most likely area to be affected by storms will be 
areas along and west of a Goldthwaite...to Dallas...to Bonham 
line. It should be pointed out that storm coverage is not expected 
to be widespread...so not everyone will see storms. 
However...conditions are favorable for any storm that develops to 
quickly become severe. Large hail...damaging winds...and isolated 
tornadoes are all possible. With ample low level moisture...heavy 
rainfall should also be expected with any of these storms. This 
could lead to localized flash flooding concerns...as soil moisture 
is very high at the present time. 


While storm chances on Wednesday are not very high because the 
upper level support is not too strong...isolated showers and 
storms are possible. The next strong shortwave comes into play on 
Thursday and into Friday...and is expected to result in 
widespread showers and storms for north and central Texas. We will 
have to keep an eye on this time frame regarding flooding 
potential...since the area cannot take on too much more water 
without causing problems. 


As the upper level trough pushes east this weekend...expect a cold 
front to push through North Texas Saturday night...and bring with 
it renewed rain chances and slightly cooler temperatures. 
However...after this feature passes through...ridging and 
subsidence should dominate and help US dry out...for at least a 
day or two early next week.
