    Isolated showers and storms continue to affect the eastern-most counties of North Texas. We are expecting thunderstorms to develop farther west...near the Interstate 35 corridor...during the early to mid afternoon hours where the atmosphere is moist and unstable. Some of these storms will become severe...with large hail...damaging winds...intense cloud-to-ground lightning and a few tornadoes possible. Also...brief heavy rain may lead to localized flash flooding late this afternoon. Rainfall totals around an inch will be possible this afternoon and evening before activity moves east of the region tonight.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1250 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Aviation... 


A surface warm frontal boundary in the vicinity of the Red River 
will begin to lift northeast this evening. A cold front currently 
over West Texas will push east this afternoon and overnight and 
move through the metroplex taf sites tomorrow morning around dawn. 
Currently most of central Texas is in the warm sector with high 
dewpoints producing very unstable conditions with cape values at 
or above 2500j/kg. Latest radar data is showing showers and 
thunderstorms beginning to rapidly develop south of the metroplex 
taf sites and in the vicinity of Waco. 


Due to the extremely unstable conditions numerous thunderstorms 
will develop this afternoon across the region..some severe 
producing large hail..downburst winds and possible tornadoes. 


Thunderstorms should move east of the metroplex and act taf sites 
around sunset tonight. Skies will slowly clear overnight with VFR 
conditions expected across the region for Saturday.

Update... 
current forecasts with severe potential still look good...along 
with best rain chances occurring along and east of I-35/35w. A 
strong negative tilted trough continues rotating northeast over 
the central/southern High Plains at midday. A broad surface low 
and triple-point was noted from Snyder to Seymour...with a warm 
front tailing back east-southeast along a Bridgeport/Bowie...to McKinney... 
to Cooper/Sulphur Springs line. A dryline tailing south-southwest 
from the surface low was already bulging east toward Abilene in 
response to enhanced middle level height falls across the South 
Plains. Temperatures are warming rapidly through the 70s to 
around 80 in the warm and humid sector east of the dryline and 
south of the warm front. 


A very moist and unstable environment will coincide with strongafternoon 
heating to produce a very unstable environment across the warm 
sector this morning. In addition...large scale ascent will 
increase by 2 PM CDT and after for the rapid development of severe 
storms along or just west of I-35 in an area of enhanced 
isentropic ascent. Initially...discrete supercell thunderstorms 
with low local/S will be possible...as surface dew pt temperatures 
are high and in the Lower-Middle 70s within the warm sector. All 
modes of severe weather will be possible. The big wild card later 
in the afternoon and evening will be how long discrete storms will 
occur...as large-scale ascent occurs quickly at convective 
temperature and may result in inflow interruption with if storms 
become more widespread sooner. 


If activity becomes too widespread too fast...then discrete 
supercells will be less likely. However...bowing line segments or 
lewps with tornadoes will be possible into the evening hours due 
to very strong low level winds and deep layer shear across the 
area with curved low level hodographs noted on forcast soundsing. 
Very large hail will also be possible...especially with discrete 
cells as instability will be pushing between 3000-4000 j/kg with 
plenty of low level cape below cloud base for potential 
tornadogenesis. Several offices including ours are sending up 
special midday soundings to assess our environment and potential 
and the feeling is this could be a big severe weather day. 


After collaboration...the enhanced risk was extended south all 
the way into eastern central Texas and southeast Texas due to the 
strong hodographs and instability. All parties should be on high 
alert beginning after 2 PM and continuing through this evening for 
all modes of severe weather. A squall line will evolve by this 
evening across our east/southeast counties with the a damaging wind threat 
becoming more dominant. 


Hydrologically...though localized 1-2 inch 
amounts of rain are possible east of I-35...the progressive nature 
of the expected linear convective complex should limit any 
widespread flash flood potential. However...there will be some 
aggravation of river flooding through run-off across particularly 
the Trinity and Sabine basins. The middle-lower Brazos could see some 
effects as well.

Previous discussion... /issued 407 am CDT Friday Apr 29 2016/ 
a warm front will continue to lift north across the region this 
morning in response to deep surface low pressure currently 
centered across the western Texas Panhandle. This warm front has 
been the catalyst for showers and thunderstorms overnight and 
will continue to a focus for storm initiation through the morning. 
It is difficult to say exactly where the warm front will end up 
this afternoon...but it should be in the vicinity of the Red 
River. This will leave all of north and central Texas in very 
moist and unstable air. Although some showers and storms may 
develop in the warm sector through the morning as large scale lift 
associated with an approaching 4 corners low increases...storms 
are most likely to develop during the afternoon on an eastward 
moving dryline. Storms that develop along the dryline will have a 
good potential to become severe with more than sufficient 
instability and adequate vertical shear to sustain tall updrafts. 
Therefore...large hail and damaging winds will be the primary 
hazards. A few tornadoes will also be possible...especially near 
the triple point which will likely be somewhere west/northwest of 
the County Warning Area. 


Storms will move east off the dryline through the afternoon and 
end up generally along and east of Interstate 35 by this evening. 
The severe potential will continue this evening along with a 
threat of heavy rainfall and some localized flooding. We have 
decided not to issue a Flash Flood Watch at this point in time 
since the upper low is prognosticated to lift to the Central Plains 
overnight/early Saturday morning which will shift the heaviest 
rainfall into East Texas. 


Drier and cooler air will begin to work in from the northwest 
early Saturday morning behind a cold front. The front should move 
through all of the forecast area by sunset Saturday and bring an 
end to all precipitation chances. 


Brief shortwave ridging will take place over the region Saturday 
night through Sunday and bring dry and pleasant weather. 
However...the ridge axis will quickly shift east Sunday night as 
another shortwave approaches from the west. Energy and elevated 
moisture from this system will bring a chance of showers and 
thunderstorms Sunday night through Tuesday. However...since low 
level moisture will be limited...storms will be elevated and 
generally below severe limits. 


Once the early week shortwave departs...a ridge of high pressure 
will amplify over the region Wednesday through Friday and bring 
rain-free weather to all of north and central Texas.
