    Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue for locations along and southeast of a line from Canton to Marlin through noon. Precipitation amounts are generally expected to remain light...with cloud to ground lightning posing the primary hazard from any storms in the area. To the northwest...a cold front will continue to move southeast across North Texas this morning through early this afternoon. This front will likely reach the Dallas...Fort Worth metroplex around noon. Blowing dust will occur immediately behind the front...and persist for 1 to 2 hours. Visibilities are only expected to fall to 5 or 6 miles in the blowing dust...however the dust in the air may cause irritation to those with respiratory problems.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
933 am CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Update... 
will update to raise probability of precipitation a bit in the far eastern counties for 
the remainder of the morning. Boundary moving through the area on 
radar is a Gravity wave which is confirmed by several high 
resolution barometric pressure sensors showing a classic rapid 
rise/fall signature with a period of about 10 to 15 minutes. While 
Gravity waves themselves propagate through a stable medium /see 
strongly capped forward sounding/...the crests of the wave are actually 
areas of upward vertical motion. In areas of where moisture is 
located...these crests can lift the moisture to its level of free convection and 
elevated thunderstorms can develop. This appears to be happening 
across the eastern parts of the County Warning Area. While widespread intense 
convection is not expected...steep lapse rates to exist and the 
strongest cells could produce some hail. Will raise probability of precipitation to 20-30 
percent across the east for the remainder of the morning. 


Farther northwest...a cold front is entering the northwest 
counties with strong northwest winds behind it. Satellite imagery 
does show a fine line of clouds developing along the leading edge 
of forcing. At this time...dont think any additional thunderstorms 
will develop...but will continue to monitor through the morning. 
No other changes needed at this time. 


Dunn 


&& 


Aviation... 
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue 
through late morning mainly along and north of the I-20 corridor. 
Most of this activity will be north and northeast of the 
metroplex taf sites and have not included any precipitation in 
the tafs. MVFR ceilings have overspread the region and expect 
ceilings to improve to VFR around 16z as winds start to shift 
around to the west. A cold front will move through the metroplex 
by early afternoon /18z/. Winds will shift to the north at around 
15 knots. The north winds will decrease to less than 10 knots 
early this evening and winds will become light easterly overnight 
as high pressure moves across the region. Winds will then become 
southeasterly around 5 knots by 14z Friday.

Previous update... 
isolated convection has developed near the Red River with the 
help of an elevated boundary or Gravity wave. Updated the forecast 
to mention isolated thunderstorms through 1 PM for areas north of 
I-20.

Previous discussion... /issued 339 am CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014/ 
most of the evening convection has exited the County Warning Area into Oklahoma. 
Middle-level moisture is not as high as anticipated and thus the 
elevated convection that was previously expected for the overnight 
hours is less likely. We have seen a couple of weak showers try to 
develop but they quickly dissipated due to the moisture problems. 
However...steep middle-level lapse rates could lead to a strong 
storm if something does fire. Model soundings show further drying 
of the middle-levels after 12z and today should be mostly dry across 
much of the County Warning Area. 


A strong surface low extends from northwest Oklahoma into NE Kansas. This 
low should quickly move east...and as it does a cold front will be 
able to surge southward on the backside of the low. The front is 
expected to reach our northwestern zones around middle-morning and 
then should reach the southern County Warning Area border around late-afternoon. 
This front will have a little effect on temperatures...with highs 
today about 5 degrees cooler than yesterday. High-res model 
guidance is showing isolated shower and storm activity along the 
front late this afternoon. This has been consistently forecasted 
by the guidance...but the front is expected to push farther south 
than thought. This should allow for most activity to be south of 
the County Warning Area. Nevertheless will hold onto 20 probability of precipitation across the southern 
zones for any showers and storms that develop along the front this 
afternoon. Cape values will be quite high today....so there is the 
potential for any storms that do develop to become severe. This 
potential matches well with the 5 percent severe hail/wind 
probabilities on the day 1 outlook. 


Southerly winds return on Friday in response to the next 
approaching system and high temperatures will be back in the 
middle to upper 80s across North Texas. This upper low is expected 
to be much stronger than the current one. The current forecasted 
track is to our north...but there will still be plenty of lift 
across the County Warning Area Saturday night through Sunday night. Saturday 
should be mostly quiet due to a strong capping inversion that is 
expected to be in place. The dryline Saturday afternoon is 
forecasted to be about 2 counties west of our western boundary. 
Severe storms are expected to develop along the dryline during the 
late afternoon hours and storm motions would then take them into 
our western counties after 00z. Hail and damaging winds would be 
the main threats...but as storms enter our County Warning Area...dewpoints in the 
middle-60s and shear profiles would support an isolated tornado 
threat. Surface based convection should weaken after 3z as the 
boundary layer decouples...but continued lift and elevated 
instability will continue the rain chances as elevated showers and 
thunderstorms remain possible. 


As the upper low nears North Texas Sunday...the dryline will be 
able to surge eastward. There remains some discrepancies between 
the model guidance on how far east the dryline will go...but the 
general consensus is near the I-35 corridor. Storms will be 
possible to the east of the dryline...and surface based convection 
is expected once the cap erodes in the afternoon. Severe weather 
will once again be possible...as cape and shear values support 
rotating storms. However...poor low-level lapse rates are limiting 
higher cape values and veering winds ahead of the dryline should 
limit the directional shear. Therefore...hail and damaging winds 
will once again be the main threat. Cant rule out isolated 
tornadoes...but the best timing would be before 3 PM...before low- 
level winds begin to veer and only Uni-directional shear is in place. 


The associated cold front is not expected until Tuesday morning as 
the upper low stalls to our north as it gets caught in a blocking 
pattern. Most medium range guidance keeps the low to our northeast 
through Friday. The persistent northerly flow and additional surge 
of cooler air will keep temperatures below normal next week.
