NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
404 am CDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Discussion... 


08z surface analysis showed a cold front moving slowly south 
across the Red River. The front was located near a line from 
Lubbock to Bowie to Sherman at the time of analysis. Regional 
radars showed scattered showers and thunderstorms north of the 
front...moving south at 5 to 10 miles per hour. 00z upper air analysis showed 
that upper level ridging once again strengthened over North Texas 
over the last 24 hours. Early morning water vapor satellite imagery 
indicates that the upper level ridge is likely breaking down early 
this morning...and reorganizing west of the County Warning Area. Expect to see 500 
mb height falls of 3 to 4 dm on the 12z forward radiosonde observation this morning with 
the ridge weakening and moving west of the County Warning Area. 


Today...expect that scattered showers and thunderstorms will 
continue to develop north of the slow moving cold front through 
the middle-morning hours of the day today. Expect that the front will 
be located south of the dfw area by this time...so maintained 30 
probability of precipitation for this morning for locations generally along and north of a 
line from Cisco to Athens. 


The front is expected to continue south into central Texas for 
this afternoon. From the middle-morning hours to the middle-afternoon 
hours...there will probably be a lull in thunderstorm activity as 
the best lift for elevated thunderstorms becomes disrupted by 
daytime heating. This is expected to occur as heating promotes 
better low-level mixing...and dry air entrains into the saturated 
layer around 800 to 750 mb where forecast soundings indicate very 
little lift is needed for air to reach its level of free 
convection early this morning. Once the elevated Reservoir of 
thunderstorm initiation is interrupted...new thunderstorm 
development will likely have to wait for the peak heating hours of 
the day for surface based air parcels to be heated up enough for 
air to be lifted above the cap by the weak forcing associated with 
the front. 


Surface based storms appear to be most likely along and just 
north of the surface cold front this afternoon. The frontal 
boundary represents a layer of only shallow cool air...and almost 
all guidance indicates that deeper moisture is available for 
storms north of the front...rather than along or south of the 
front. Either way...the shallow frontal inversion will likely mix 
out leaving only a wind-shift line defining the leading edge of 
the front during the peak heating hours of the day. Models 
consistently show the highest precipitable water values north of the front 
across central Texas this afternoon...so went ahead and bumped 
probability of precipitation up to 40 percent centered along a line from Comanche to Waco 
to Palestine this afternoon. 


Precipitable waters  are forecast to be in the neighborhood of 2 inches...so 
brief heavy rainfall and gusty outflow winds are the primary 
thunderstorm hazards aside from the lightning threat present with 
any thunderstorm activity. 


Despite storms more likely to occur north of the front...as long 
as the shallow frontal inversion mixes out as expected...forecast 
soundings still advertise an inverted-v low-level 
profile...indicative of storms capable of producing microbursts. 
Severe/damaging winds should not be common due to a somewhat 
meager Theta-E difference with height in the atmosphere limiting 
the strength of cold pool accelerations. Regardless...steep low 
level lapse rates will allow for wind gusts in the 40-50 miles per hour 
range...which is strong enough to cause light...localized damage. 


Storm motions are prognosticated to be slow this afternoon...however a 
widespread flooding threat is not expected as storms will still 
produce outflow boundaries that should promote storms to move away 
from any one location with propagation likely dominating storm 
motions. 


Tonight...models are fairly consistent now in advertising 
northeasterly flow bringing cool and dry air into the County Warning Area 
beginning this afternoon...continuing through the overnight hours. 
This should cause any lingering thunderstorm activity east of 
Interstate 35 to diminish fairly quickly after sunset. Models are 
now also consistently showing an 850 mb Theta-E ridge holding up 
over west central Texas...and over the western portion of the County Warning Area 
tonight into tomorrow. This Theta-E ridge may become active again 
overnight...with a similar coverage of storms to what we are 
seeing north of the Red River at the time of this forecast 
discussion. 


Coverage and placement of storms will be determined by the 
orientation of low level flow to the west of this Theta-E ridge. 
If winds become southwesterly to the west of this feature...more 
storms are likely due to enhanced low-level convergence. If winds 
remain southerly...convergence will be shunted more to the 
west...leaving the County Warning Area with lower thunderstorm chances and 
coverage. Just maintained 20-30 probability of precipitation overnight west of Interstate 
35/35w for now without higher confidence in which scenario will 
pan out. East of Interstate 35 should be dry...all guidance 
supports this...so left the forecast dry for these locations. 


Tuesday...model guidance indicates that an 850 mb anti-cyclone 
will move southeast from Oklahoma over towards Louisiana from 
tonight into Tuesday afternoon. This will cause the transport of 
dry cool air in from the northeast to be interrupted as low-level 
flow veers around to the east and eventually southeast by Tuesday 
night. This will allow the low-level Theta-E ridge to build slowly 
eastward from west central Texas back over the County Warning Area Tuesday through 
Tuesday night. During the day on Tuesday...most model guidance 
indicates that the Theta-E ridge will remain west of Interstate 
35/35w so went ahead and kept the highest probability of precipitation over those 
locations as surface based storms are most likely within this area 
during the peak heating hours of the day. The Theta-E ridge is 
expected to advect north overnight and become re-established over 
the northeastern County Warning Area by sunrise Wednesday morning. Overnight 
thunderstorm activity is most likely within this Theta-E 
ridge...so transitioned probability of precipitation to match the model placement of this 
feature overnight. 


The low-level Theta-E ridge is mentioned a lot here because it is 
the easiest way to track our best precipitation chances associated 
with the front stalling out...becoming reoriented and changing in 
characteristics between a cold to stationary to warm front from 
today through Wednesday. Instead of changing the name of the 
front several times...the Theta-E ridge can be used as a proxy 
for the best precipitation chances associated with the front and 
is easy to refer to as one thing throughout the forecast. 


By Wednesday...the low-level Theta-E ridge is expected to remain 
stationary along the Red River...but dipping southeast over the 
northeastern County Warning Area towards Shreveport. Guidance continues to show 
that upper level troughing will dominate the eastern Continental U.S. By 
Wednesday with upper level ridging over the southwestern Continental U.S.. 
this leaves the South Plains in northwest flow aloft. Models have 
been showing a shortwave trough in this flow regime headed over 
the area sometime between Wednesday and Thursday. The consensus of 
yesterday evenings models now indicate that this shortwave will 
move over the northern portions of North Texas during the day on 
Wednesday. This feature is actually track-able on water vapor 
satellite imagery now as well...making for a higher confidence 
forecast in general. This shortwave was over Baja California California at 
the time of this discussion. 


With the Theta-E ridge/front in place as mentioned above...the 
forcing for ascent induced by the shortwave trough should give US 
our best precipitation chances for this week. Went ahead with 40 
to 60 probability of precipitation for locations along and northeast of a line from Bowie 
to McKinney to Emory on Wednesday and Wednesday night as a result. 
Locally heavy rainfall looks much more likely for these areas as 
precipitable waters  are expected to be in excess of 2 inches during this time 
frame...and a nearly stationary Theta-E ridge interacting with 
forcing should promote a good coverage of storms. A Flood Watch is 
not expected at this time...but we will have to monitor to see if 
mesoscale/smaller scale forecast details dictate a more 
widespread flooding event in later forecasts. For now it looks 
like the threat of any flooding will tend to be localized in 
nature. 


The Theta-E ridge/front is expected to slide south across North 
Texas on Thursday...and kept widespread 30-50 probability of precipitation in place as a 
result. With so much going on before this front begins to move 
again on Thursday...will not get into the details of this forecast 
period as widespread thunderstorm activity over the northeastern 
County Warning Area will probably change things quite a bit in later forecasts. 


Precipitation chances will continue to diminish behind the front 
on Friday...with model consensus showing much drier conditions 
over the region by Saturday. Left 20 probability of precipitation in the forecast for 
Friday...with a dry forecast for next weekend into early next week 
as a result. Temperatures will likely be unseasonably cool across 
the area Thursday and Friday...warming back up towards normal by 
early next week with drier air and mostly sunny skies in place.

Aviation... 
/issued 1150 PM CDT sun Jul 27 2014/ 
a cold front continues to slide south across the Red River late 
this evening. The front is a bit ahead of schedule and should most 
likely reach the metroplex taf sites around 12z and Waco by 16z. 
Storms have been struggling to hold together as they move south 
into the extremely capped environment currently in place across 
North Texas. Scattered showers and a few storms will be possible 
well behind the front from middle morning Monday through middle 
afternoon as the frontal surface deepens. The hrrr and Texas tech 
WRF solution as well as NAM all support this scenario. Any precipitation 
that does develop should end before 00z as drier air finally moves 
into the region. 


A south wind around 10 knots overnight will turn to the 
north/northeast with the passage of the front at speeds between 8 
and 12 knots. 


We will keep VFR conditions through Monday evening with scattered 
to broken middle level clouds.
