NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
912 PM CST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Update... 
for a change...it is a quiet night weather-wise across the region. 
Radiational cooling will be excellent...especially in areas that 
received high amounts of snow or sleet. When snow and sleet cover 
the ground it helps to keep the ground heat from influencing the 
air temperature...so temperatures often tank. However...dewpoints 
in the upper teens to middle 20s will provide a floor for 
temperatures tonight. It is possible a few of the typically 
cooler locations may dip into the teens tonight...but average lows 
will be in the low 20s as currently forecast. Dfw/S record low for 
tomorrow is 20 and looks out of reach...but Waco should break 
its record of 23 set in 2013. 


Otherwise we expect a lot of frost by morning...but this is 
largely inconsequential. Forecast is on track and no update 
required. 


Tr.92 


&& 


Aviation... 
/issued 546 PM CST Thursday Mar 5 2015/ 


VFR conditions are expected for this taf cycle. 


North winds will become light and variable across the region 
tonight as a ridge builds in from the northwest. Temperatures 
have been able to rebound above freezing across all of north and 
central Texas this afternoon...which combined with ample sunshine 
has helped melt much of the snow and ice. However...clear skies 
and calm winds will help any residual moisture left on roadways 
and taxiways during the overnight hours refreeze. By middle morning 
tomorrow...temperatures should climb above freezing and winds are 
expected to be southerly...gradually increasing to around 7 kts 
for the remainder of the day. 








&& 






Previous discussion... /issued 323 PM CST Thursday Mar 5 2015/ 


The temperature trends and anticipated impacts on snow cover and 
Road conditions across North Texas over the next 24 hours have not 
changed...so the late morning update which discusses this in 
detail has been appended below this discussion. 


Friday...as mentioned below...another full day of sunshine is 
expected on Friday...and that combined with temperatures in the 
40s is expected to be sufficient to melt sleet and snow 
accumulations across the region. Assuming the snow is all 
gone...overnight lows Friday night into Saturday morning should 
remain warmer...with lows falling just below freezing in the upper 
20s to low 30s for most locations. 


Saturday...an upper level low pressure system currently located 
off shore just west of the California/Baja California California coast is 
expected to move east towards the Southern Plains on Saturday. As 
it approaches...this feature is expected to amplify shortwave 
ridging over the Southern Plains. Winds are expected to be 
southerly by Saturday afternoon...and the shortwave ridging 
should keep US dry across north and central Texas despite moisture 
return associated with south winds near the surface and 
southwesterly winds aloft. Highs are expected to top out in the 
middle 50s for most locations on Saturday...and perhaps more 
importantly...once temperatures climb above freezing Saturday 
morning...temperatures are expected to remain above freezing for 
the foreseeable future. 


Sunday...the upper low is expected to move east over the Southern 
Plains Sunday afternoon as another shortwave trough digs south 
behind it from the northwestern Continental U.S.. the approach of the 
shortwave trough will spread large scale forcing for ascent over 
the County Warning Area from the southwest to the east during the day on Sunday. 
The best overlap of lift and moisture return looks to occur over 
the southeastern County Warning Area on Sunday so went ahead with a 50 percent 
chance of rain showers at this time. Have probability of precipitation in place for just 
about the entire County Warning Area on Sunday due to the expected lift over the 
region...but precipitation chances decrease to the northwest with 
only a 20 percent chance of rain in place northwest of the dfw 
area. Most importantly...there is no cold air on its way into the 
region...so whatever rain falls on Sunday will remain in liquid 
form with temperatures expected to be in the 40s and 50s. 


Monday...lingered some rain chances over locations generally 
along and south of the Interstate 20 corridor Sunday night into 
Monday as models are struggling to resolve the dynamics and 
evolution of the second shortwave trough that dives into the 
region from the northwest. This trough will likely move over the 
County Warning Area on Monday...however the lift associated with this trough 
appears to be weak in nature at this time. Sunday's lead upper low 
or upper trough is expected to send a weak Pacific type frontal 
boundary across the County Warning Area which will likely advect some drier air 
into the region from the north. How extensive this dry air 
intrusion is will dictate how much...if any...additional rain 
develops over the County Warning Area on Monday. Once again...temperatures are 
expected to remain well above freezing...so there is no wintry 
precipitation in the forecast. 


Remainder of next week...behind the second shortwave trough...the 
consensus of guidance is that weak upper level subsidence will 
remain over the Southern Plains. This should result in at least a 
few days characterized by mostly clear skies and temperatures 
warming up into the 60s to lower 70s mid-week. Another upper level 
storm system will likely approach the Southern Plains Friday or 
into the weekend. Even if this system pans out...there is no 
current evidence that suggests we will get cold enough for wintry 
precipitation at this time. Showers and thunderstorms would be a 
possibility.

Previous update... 


Temperature trends and the anticipated impacts on Road conditions 
and snow melt across north and central Texas for the next 24 
hours... 


Went ahead and cancelled the winter storm warnings and winter 
weather advisories that were in effect across the County Warning Area with mostly 
sunny skies in place and temperatures increasing across the region 
this morning. 


High temperatures today will be held back quite a bit by all of 
the sleet and snow that fell across the region overnight. While 
temperatures this morning remained below freezing anywhere where 
snow and sleet accumulated...snow and sleet on area roadways was 
already starting to melt. Any area roadways where the Road surface 
is exposed to the sun will benefit from this "early melt" before 
temperatures actually climb above freezing because the dark 
surfaces of the Road will absorb the sun's energy causing these 
surfaces to heat up faster than the air. This process occurs 
everyday actually...but it is more noticeable when there's 
something on the roadways to melt off. Starting off the day under 
mostly sunny skies for most of the region will help snow and sleet 
to melt off area roadways significantly faster than simply waiting 
for the air temperature to climb above freezing. 


Temperatures are still on track to climb above freezing right 
after noon today for most of north and central Texas. Once air 
temperatures climb above freezing the air and Road surface heating 
by the sun will work together to start melting snow and sleet 
accumulations efficiently this afternoon. Snow and sleet melt will 
be greatest on well traveled roadways because persistent traffic 
is more likely to expose Road surfaces to the sun. Also...while 
this is fairly common sense it's Worth noting...not all areas 
received the exact same amount of snow. Areas that received less 
snowfall will see improving Road conditions the fastest. 


In terms of the timing of temperatures above freezing today into 
tonight (for locations that received at least 1.5 inches of 
snow/sleet accumulation overnight): 


Urbanized areas (including most of the dfw area): 


Climb above freezing today: noon 
fall below freezing: 8-9 PM 
overnight low: 22-25 degrees 
climb above freezing friday: by 10 am 
friday's high temperature: middle-40s 


Non-urban areas (most of the remainder of north texas): 


Climb above freezing today: noon-1pm 
fall below freezing: 7-8 PM 
overnight low: 19-23 degrees 
climb above freezing friday: by 10 am 
friday's high temperature: middle-40s 


Anticipated impacts: 


Urban areas will tend to absorb more of the sun's energy 
today...keeping the air temperature above freezing for an extra 
hour or so this evening. Regardless...temperatures are expected 
to fall into the low to middle 20s tonight...so any residual 
snow...sleet...or water on area roadways is likely to refreeze 
before sunrise Friday morning. No additional precipitation is 
expected however...so any roadways that become dry before 8-9 PM 
tonight should remain in good shape for Friday morning. 


During the day on Friday...another day of full sunshine combined 
with temperatures climbing into the middle 40s should help to clear 
area roadways of almost all snow and ice by Friday afternoon. 


In summary...expect Road conditions to improve quite a bit this 
afternoon across north and central Texas. However the chances of 
roads becoming completely ice and snow free before we fall below 
freezing again tonight is expected to vary based on the discussion 
above across the region. Expect some sort of snow/sleet/ice will 
remain on roadways that are less traveled...or where snowfall 
totals were greater than 4 inches overnight. Factors such as which 
roads may have been plowed or semi-cleared by heavy traffic are 
very difficult to predict on a multi-County/city scale. Confidence 
is very high that any remaining slush on roads after 9 PM will 
become refrozen to Road surfaces before sunrise Friday morning. 
Snow and sleet accumulations are expected to be cleared off of 
most area roadways by Friday afternoon.
