Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
941 PM CDT Friday may 22 2015 


Update... 
no significant changes to the current forecast through the 
overnight hours. Surface warm front is located just south of the 
metroplex tonight and will continue to lift northward. This will 
result in considerably warmer and more muggy conditions by early 
morning. A few isolated showers have developed along and just 
north of the front but most of the activity is light at this time. 
Expect only isolated shower/storm activity overnight with a 
gradual increase in coverage through the day Saturday. 


Flash Flood Watch remains unchanged at this time with the heaviest 
rainfall still expected along and just northwest of the metroplex 
through late tomorrow night.

Aviation... 
/issued 727 PM CDT Friday may 22 2015/ 


For the 00z tafs...timing the onset of low MVFR and IFR stratus 
returning to the region and then rain shower and thunderstorm 
chances over the next 24-36 hours are the primary forecast 
challenges. 


23z surface analysis indicated low-level moisture returning 
rapidly to the region from the Texas Gulf Coast northwest over 
west central Texas. This deep moisture return will result in cloud 
heights lowering from the 2 to 3 thousand foot range to 
approximately 800 feet above ground level tonight. These clouds are expected to 
move over area airports from the west or southwest to the east. 
Have low MVFR ceilings building in after 04z...then IFR ceilings 4 hours 
later. Will monitor upstream trends and amend the tafs if this 
timing looks like it will change. IFR ceilings are likely to hold 
until the late morning hours of Saturday. 


After noon on Saturday...large scale lift begins to increase over 
Texas from west to east...resulting in an increase in rain chances 
from Saturday afternoon through Saturday night. Scattered rain 
showers are possibly anytime on Saturday...with thunderstorms 
becoming more likely late Saturday afternoon. Widespread rain 
shower activity with embedded thunderstorms is likely at all area 
airports Saturday night. Did not place thunder in the forecast at 
this time because it looks like we will have many hours of 
precipitation with embedded thunderstorms possible. 


Did not want to advertise 10 to 12 hours of thunderstorms at this 
time...although this is a rare situation where this is actually 
possible. Any rain shower or thunderstorm activity Saturday night 
is expected to result in heavy rainfall and likely IFR 
visibilities. Went ahead with a mention of heavy rain in at the 
end of the dfw taf. Best window for widespread heavy rainfall at 
area taf sites appears to be just before midnight to 15z Sunday at 
this time. 


A widespread heavy rainfall event is likely across the region this 
weekend...so the tafs will likely be busy and amended frequently 
as we move into Saturday afternoon and evening.

Previous discussion... /issued 327 PM CDT Friday may 22 2015/ 
a warm front is moving through North Texas at this time with 
temperatures and dewpoints steadily climbing as the surface winds 
attain a southerly component. Weak isentropic lift and warm 
advection above the surface will continue through the overnight 
hours...which will ensure low cloud cover and a few showers or 
storms. This activity should generally be weak with no risk for 
severe weather and limited rainfall. Temperatures tonight will 
stay mild and humid with lows only in the 60s. 


An upper level low currently near Las Vegas will lumber eastward 
during the next couple of days and set the stage for a round of 
heavy rainfall and some severe storms over the region Saturday 
afternoon through Sunday afternoon. Precipitable water will 
approach 2 inches which would be unusually high for may. Perhaps 
more importantly the unidirectional southerly wind profile is one 
that portends heavy rainfall events...because it Fosters cell 
training or slow moving lines of storms. Also of note our low 
level winds increase to near 40kt which would quickly replenish 
the atmospheric moisture that is precipitated out. Unlike our 
previous storm events during the last 3 weeks...directional wind 
shear and instability will be much lower which will tend to 
mitigate the severe weather threat. However the lower instability 
and unidirectional shear would increase cell precipitation 
efficiency. Although...as we saw...those slow moving supercells 
had the ability to dump extreme amounts of rain...the highest 
amounts were fairly localized. In this upcoming situation...there 
is a greater potential for extreme rain amounts over a larger 
area. Thus in addition to flash flooding...river flooding is 
likely to become a significant impact...also exacerbated by the 
fact that there is little room for water in area lakes. 


As for the specifics...scattered to numerous thunderstorms will 
develop to our west and head northeast into the western portions 
of the County Warning Area during the afternoon hours. The severe weather threat 
will be greatest from middle afternoon to middle evening...when 
convection is more cellular and there is a little more 
instability available. Generally expect strong winds and hail to 
be the main severe weather threat...but there remains a low 
tornado potential. Otherwise convection should start to 
consolidate into a line or band that trains and dumps an average 
of 2-4 inches of rain across the northwestern County Warning Area Saturday 
evening. As time wears on a cold pool will develop Saturday 
evening...which will help push the line slowly southeast toward 
the I-35 corridor during the overnight hours and into Sunday 
morning. Rainfall across the central zones and southern zones will 
average 1 to 3 inches. Severe weather threat overnight for the 
I-35 corridor would mainly be strong winds and perhaps a brief 
weak tornado...but the overall limited instability will lessen 
severe potential. The band of rain should continue to head 
eastward through the morning hours Sunday...likely clearing the 
County Warning Area by late afternoon. An average of 1-2 inches is expected over 
the eastern zones. Some model guidance suggests more convection 
will fire over the western zones in the afternoon...but the 
airmass may be too worked over for another round so will keep 
Sunday afternoon/evening probability of precipitation low. 


A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area given the 
potential for heavy rainfall and flooding...but again we are most 
concerned about the region just north and west of the dfw 
metroplex for significant flooding Saturday night. There still is 
some uncertainty...and it is possible the training bands of 
convection will set up in a different location...or move more 
slowly Sunday morning across the central and eastern zones...so 
the Flash Flood Watch is needed even though our deterministic quantitative precipitation forecast 
forecast has lower amounts in the east. 


Otherwise...the primary change in the forecast concerns Monday 
afternoon and Monday night when another shortwave trough will move 
through the state. Previously model guidance had focused convection 
along the Texas coastline which protected US from robust 
convection this far north. Convection along the Gulf Coast would 
have intercepted or prevented Gulf moisture return...and would 
have placed our region in a zone of subsidence. Model guidance 
during the last day has weakened the Gulf Coast convection Monday 
morning...and therefore brings the high moisture back into the 
region Monday afternoon. If the 70 dewpoints do arrive back into 
the area...it would create an extremely unstable atmosphere over 
the region. Both the NAM/GFS indicate widespread surface based 
cape in excess of 5000 j/kg. This amount may be overdone...but 
nonetheless there is a signal that high instability will be 
available Monday afternoon as forcing from the shortwave arrives 
late in the day. Thus have increased probability of precipitation to 60 percent...and we 
are forecasting the potential for another round of heavy rainfall 
and severe weather Monday evening and night. The high instability 
would likely mean a mesoscale convective system or squall line would form...which would 
move fairly quickly over the region and hopefully help limit 
rainfall amounts to 1 to 2 inches. We will get more into the 
specifics regarding this event during the next couple of days. 


The region will remain in a weak flow regime with broad troughing 
Tuesday into Thursday. Will continue to carry just a generic low 
chance of convection...which will be diurnally driven. Low shear 
will limit organization...but enough instability will be available 
for pulse severe or locally heavy downpours where these storms do 
pop up. Temperatures will continue to moderate during the week 
with highs benefiting from more sunshine and reaching the middle 80s 
by Wednesday and Thursday. The next system is slated for Friday 
when the region will likely see another round of widespread rain.
