NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
356 am CST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


Discussion... 


Early morning water vapor imagery shows a sheared upper level 
trough extending from the Texas Panhandle northeast over southwest 
Missouri. This trough was moving northeast towards the Great Lakes 
region. Another upper trough was evident over the northern Baja California 
peninsula...and this trough was moving almost due east towards the 
Arizona and Mexico border. Regional radars showed some very light 
isolated rain showers over the southeastern portion of the County Warning Area 
early this morning...moving northeast with the upper trough just 
off to the north. The 00z forward radiosonde observation was saturated from the surface 
to the 600 mb level...however this is not likely representative of 
the environment in place over North Texas early this morning. Dry 
air aloft can be seen on water vapor satellite imagery filtering 
over north and central Texas early this morning. However... 
infrared satellite imagery combined with surface observations 
indicate a low stratus deck in place across the entire County Warning Area. 


Think that isolated rain showers will only remain over the far 
southeastern County Warning Area for a few hours this morning before all 
precipitation moves east or southeast of central Texas as drier 
middle-level air continues to build over the region. The depth of 
low-level moisture is much more difficult to assess this 
morning...and unfortunately this will play a large role in high 
temperatures today. Models are consistent in indicating that as 
the upper trough just north of North Texas moves northeast 
today...850 mb winds will veer around to the west. This will 
generally bring warmer and drier air over the County Warning Area today...but this 
is only relevant if we are able to get rid of the low stratus 
already in place. 


If the low cloud cover breaks up this afternoon...even a few 
hours of heating should allow temperatures to climb up into the 
upper 50s to lower 60s with the warm 850 mb temperatures in place. 
However...if clouds remain in place...highs may remain in the 
upper 40s to lower 50s today. Confidence is high that clouds will 
remain in place through midday. After that...high resolution 
guidance favors clouds remaining in place while some of the 
coarser resolution models favor breaks in the stratus for a few 
hours this afternoon. With all models showing westerly 850 mb 
winds throughout the day today...leaned the forecast in favor of 
the warmer solution. All guidance shows the stratus slowly lifting 
through the morning hours of the day...so think that the 
persistent 850 westerly winds will eventually help mix enough dry 
air into the rising stratus deck to allow for some breaks in the 
clouds before sunset. Kept highs 3-5 degrees below MOS guidance 
however as MOS seems to represent the warmest we could possibly 
get today under ideal conditions. 


Tonight and Friday...the Baja California upper trough is expected to move 
east towards the Southern Plains tonight...causing low-level 
cyclogenesis over south Texas. At the same time...the departure of 
the northern upper trough to the east is expected to send a cold 
front south across much of north and central Texas this evening. 
Where this front meets the south Texas cyclogenesis...a strong 
baroclinic zone/warm front type feature is expected to set up 
somewhere across central Texas. This baroclinic zone shows up best 
at the 850 mb level...and this feature is likely to play an 
important role in where the heaviest rainfall will occur with this 
second upper level storm system. 


Unfortunately the consensus of guidance yesterday evening (18/00z 
models) keep this 850 front farther south than they were 
advertising 24 hours ago. As a result...confidence in heavy 
rainfall over the County Warning Area during this event has diminished. Locations 
that may still see an inch of rainfall are likely relegated to 
along and southeast of a line from Temple to Palestine...assuming 
models are doing a good job with the position of the 850 mb front. 
A shift to the south will keep the heaviest rains southeast of 
College Station...while a shift to the north could bring the 
heavier rainfall axis as far north as Waco. This forecast sides 
with a drier solution on average as the GFS and European model (ecmwf) both keep 
the 850 front south of the County Warning Area entirely. 


Locations north of this front...which likely includes most of the 
County Warning Area...are still likely to see measurable rainfall. Model mass 
fields still indicate persistent isentropic lift from the 
Interstate 20 corridor and points south. These locations may pick 
up anywhere from one half to one quarter of an inch of rainfall 
from tonight through Friday morning. The prospects of picking up 
substantially higher rainfall amounts are lower without the 850 
mb front in place. For locations along and north of the Interstate 
20 corridor...precipitation totals are expected to drop off even 
further...with rainfall totals likely remaining at or below one 
tenth of an inch. Forcing for ascent north of Interstate 20 is 
still present...however it is not as strong or prolonged as it is 
for points south. The lack of stronger lift means that the 850 to 
700 mb dry air advecting over the region early this morning will 
be hard to overcome. This layer of dry air aloft makes any 
substantial rainfall look hard to come by. 


Rainfall is still expected to come to an end from west to east 
Friday afternoon as the upper trough moves east of the region. 
High resolution models continue to hint at some light 
precipitation persisting along the back side of the upper 
trough...due to residual moisture wrapped up behind the trough. 
Kept a mention of light rain in the forecast generally along and 
east of the Interstate 35/35w corridor Friday evening and night as 
a result. Do not expect much more than a couple of hundredths of 
an inch of rainfall if this pans out. 


This weekend...behind friday's upper trough...most of the moisture 
from the 850 mb level and above is expected to move east or 
southeast away from the County Warning Area. An upper level ridge is expected to 
amplify over the Pacific Ocean just off the West Coast...and large 
scale troughing is expected over the middle-west Continental U.S....resulting 
in northwest flow aloft over the Southern Plains. Northwest flow 
aloft is typically a dry weather pattern for the region during the 
cool season...mainly because the bulk of the trajectories over the 
region are from relatively dry and cool parts of the continent 
upstream. This pattern looks fairly typical of a cool season 
northwest flow regime...so maintained a cool and dry forecast at 
this time. Models do continue to bring a relatively strong 
shortwave trough over the County Warning Area on Sunday in the northwest flow 
regime. However...with dry air advertised in the middle to upper 
troposphere...do not see much evidence that this will result in 
any rain for the region at this time. Bumped up cloud cover a bit 
on Sunday to account for this feature...and will continue to 
monitor its strength as it gets closer to the South Plains. 


Models continue to advertise northwest flow over the South Plains 
for early next week. The only change is that guidance continues to 
indicate that a strong upper level shortwave trough will dig south 
out of Canada and send a strong cold front across the County Warning Area Monday 
night into Tuesday morning. The upper trough itself is expected to 
remain well off to the northeast...so there will be little to no 
upper level support or lift to accompany the front south across 
the plains. Without upper level lift...think that the strong lift 
along the front will not be strong enough to result in any 
significant rain chances for Monday night into Tuesday. Maintained 
a 20 percent chance of rain over the far eastern County Warning Area where low- 
level moisture may be a bit deeper...however even if this pans 
out...expect any rainfall to be very light at this time. Think 
most of the County Warning Area will remain dry early next week. 


Temperatures will cool down a bit behind the front...but all 
guidance indicates that the strong Canadian airmass behind the 
front will deflect east of the region...more or less in line with 
the upper trough that sends this front south in the first place. 
Because the front will send some very dry low-level air across the 
area...high temperatures may not be all that different behind the 
front...maybe 5 degrees cooler with a full day of sunshine behind 
the front on Tuesday. The effects of the front will be more 
apparent overnight Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Overnight 
lows will likely fall into the 30s with cooler dry air in place. 


Christmas and the extended forecast...Christmas is now 7 days out 
and approaching our valid forecast coverage. At this time...the 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) both indicate northwest flow aloft transitioning to 
zonal flow aloft over the Southern Plains by Christmas day. If 
this occurs it will generally result in warmer weather for the 
region. However...this change in flow aloft is only due to both 
models indicating that a powerful upper level storm system will 
nudge south over the western Continental U.S.. this system looks like it will 
hold off on really impacting the Southern Plains until Friday or 
Saturday after Christmas. There are large differences in how these 
models handle the evolution of this powerful looking storm 
system...so will not get into the details here. However the common 
theme in these models is that a strong Arctic front will 
eventually move south across the plains...likely resulting in 
temperatures holding well below normal the weekend after 
Christmas.

through Thursday midday...trending to MVFR in the early 
afternoon...then returning to IFR conditions around 19/00z through 
the end of the forecast. 


Kact will have MVFR conditions until 18/09z then IFR conditions through 
late Thursday afternoon. There will be a short window of MVFR 
conditions 19/00 to 19/03z then IFR conditions will return. 


Winds will be mostly northeast but variable at times. Speeds 
generally less than 10 knots. 75
