NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1059 am CDT Sat Jul 26 2014 


Update... 
temperatures are warming steadily across North Texas this morning 
under full July Sun. Afternoon highs should have no problem 
reaching the upper 90s to around 103. A southerly breeze should 
offset the high humidity a bit and provide at least some relief 
from the heat. 


The current forecast is in good shape so no changes are necessary 
at this time.

Aviation... 
/issued 1134 PM CDT Friday Jul 25 2014/ 
we will continue with a persistence forecast through Saturday night with 
VFR conditions and a south wind generally less than 12 knots. The 
only clouds expected will be a few daytime cumulus.

Previous discussion... /issued 402 am CDT Sat Jul 26 2014/ 


00z radiosonde observations showed an upper level high pressure system centered 
roughly over Childress Texas at the 500 mb level. Early morning 
water vapor satellite imagery confirmed that this feature remained 
in place with distinct anticyclonic flow over the Southern Plains 
and the southern High Plains. The 00z forward radiosonde observation observed a 
precipitable water (pwat) of 1... is below the 25th 
percentile for this time of year according to the bunkers precipitable water 
climatology database. 


For today and tomorrow...with an abnormally dry air mass in place 
and upper level high pressure dominating our regional 
weather pattern...maintained a dry and hot forecast through this 
weekend. Confidence in a hot and dry forecast is fairly high at 
this time...but even so...there are a couple of areas to watch for 
small thunderstorm chances over the next 36 to 48 hours. 


The first feature to keep an eye on is the sea-breeze boundary. 
Regional radars tracked the sea-breeze moving north towards Bell 
County right around sunset yesterday. There were no thunderstorms 
along this boundary yesterday late afternoon/evening...but it did 
make it to the County Warning Area border. With southerly winds expected over the 
next 48 hours...there will be at least some shallow moisture 
return to the region through the weekend. With some deeper 
moisture to work with...will have to watch the sea-breeze boundary 
as it moves northwest this afternoon and Sunday afternoon to 
monitor for isolated thunderstorm chances across the southern County Warning Area. 
Did not include thunderstorms in the forecast at this time as the 
upper level ridge will still be in place...and it is unknown 
whether the sea-breeze will be able to make it far enough north to 
result in late afternoon thunderstorm chances before sunset. High 
confidence in the ridge and its associated forcing for subsidence 
supports a dry forecast a this time. 


The second feature to watch is the speed of a cold front moving 
south from the Central Plains towards the Red River Sunday 
afternoon. Confidence in this front pushing south across the 
plains this weekend is very high because the upper low that will 
send the front to the south is prominent and very strong looking 
on water vapor satellite imagery early this morning. This strong 
upper low was in place over southern Saskatchewan as of 08z/3am. 
Nearly all guidance shows this upper low moving southeast over the 
Great Lakes region this weekend...which is a big part of the 
reason why there are consecutive days of Storm Prediction Center moderate risk 
outlook areas across the Upper Middle-west to the Middle-Atlantic 
States. 


The primary concern for North Texas is whether the front will 
remain north of the Red River late Sunday afternoon or not. The 
consensus of guidance does slow the front down quite a bit on 
Sunday...so left the northern County Warning Area dry for now Sunday afternoon. 
However it is a bit concerning that non-convection allowing models 
are showing signs of shallow convection being triggered in their 
various convection parameterization schemes over the northwestern 
County Warning Area Sunday afternoon. (That is...there's no model quantitative precipitation forecast...but there 
is cooling and saturation in the middle-levels that shows up for no 
particular reason.) At any rate...will not be too concerned about 
thunderstorm chances unless the front does not slow down Sunday 
afternoon. If the front crosses the Red River...we will need to 
place thunderstorms in the forecast. 


Sunday night and Monday...most models show the cold front pushing 
south of the Red River after midnight Sunday night. Went ahead 
with some 20 probability of precipitation over the northern County Warning Area as a result. Forecast 
soundings show that surface based storms are very unlikely due to 
the nocturnal inversion...however middle-level lapse rates are steep 
enough that with some middle-level moisture...elevated showers and 
thunderstorms look likely near or north of the cold front as it 
moves over the County Warning Area. Extended 20 probability of precipitation to the south of the dfw area 
Monday morning...and then bumped up probability of precipitation to 30 percent from the 
dfw area south across central Texas for Monday afternoon. 


Storms Monday afternoon should transition from elevated to 
surface based with sufficient heating south of the front. Forecast 
soundings show a thermodynamic environment that looks very 
supportive of thunderstorms producing strong microbursts. 
Kinematic fields are weak and not supportive of organized 
thunderstorms...so primarily single cell storms with a microburst 
threat are expected near and south of the front Monday afternoon. 
Storms will likely still occur north of the front Monday 
afternoon...but strong microbursts are not as likely as cloud 
cover will reduce low-level lapse rates thereby limiting the 
intensity of downdrafts. The front is expected to continue slowly 
to the south/southwest Monday night...and maintained 20 to 30 probability of precipitation 
based on its consensus location through Tuesday morning. 


Tuesday through Wednesday...behind the front the consensus of 
guidance shows fairly deep low-level northeasterly flow into north 
and central Texas through Tuesday evening. This northeasterly flow 
represents fairly Stout dry and cool air advection...which should 
effectively dry out the lower troposphere while cooling US off 
several degrees for Tuesday afternoon. Our flow aloft is expected 
to shift from weak anti-cyclonic to northwest by Tuesday 
afternoon...however at this time there are no shortwave troughs 
evident that will spread lift over the County Warning Area Tuesday through 
Wednesday. Without any obvious lifting mechanism and with much 
drier air in place...went ahead and removed the broad brushed 20 
probability of precipitation that were in the forecast from Tuesday through Wednesday 
afternoon. Did leave some small chance of thunderstorms over the 
far northwestern County Warning Area for Wednesday afternoon as models are hinting 
at some moisture return over the High Plains by this time. There 
is a small chance that something might develop just off to our 
northwest and move into the County Warning Area before sunset on Wednesday. 


Wednesday night and Thursday...low-level flow is expected to veer 
from northeasterly on Tuesday to southeasterly by Thursday 
morning. This veering of the low-level flow will result in low- 
level moisture returning to the southern High Plains first on 
Wednesday...and then building back to the east across north and 
central Texas on Thursday. Models are showing a fairly consistent 
signal that an mesoscale convective system will organize over the High Plains Wednesday 
night and move southeast towards the Red River early Thursday 
morning. Went ahead and kept 30 probability of precipitation over the northwest County Warning Area...and 
expanded 20 probability of precipitation eastward across the entire area through Thursday 
morning due to uncertainties with regards to timing and strength 
of this mesoscale convective system. This mesoscale convective system is expected to occur out ahead of a 
shortwave trough embedded in the northwest flow aloft...so 
confidence in the mesoscale convective system is high...it's just not clear whether it 
will hold together as it moves towards North Texas Thursday 
morning. 


Our best chance of rain/storms looks to occur on Thursday as the 
shortwave trough moves southeast and spreads some forcing for 
ascent over the County Warning Area. The bulk of the energy aloft looks to remain 
north of the County Warning Area...so held higher probability of precipitation over the northern counties 
versus central Texas. Some models have a weak front moving south 
across the County Warning Area with the shortwave trough...and if this is the case 
probability of precipitation will need to be increased in later forecasts. Aside from 
precipitation chances...Thursday should be our coolest day of the 
week as mostly cloudy skies should keep temperatures in the middle to 
upper 80s for most locations. If widespread rain pans out...highs 
will be even lower across the area. 


Friday into next weekend...with the possibility of a stalled 
frontal boundary across the County Warning Area on Friday...maintained broad 
brushed 20 probability of precipitation in the forecast for Friday. Went ahead with a dry 
forecast for next weekend for now as dry easterly flow once again 
is expected to advect cool dry air into the area. Upper level 
troughing over the eastern Continental U.S. Actually builds west next 
weekend...which should help keep temperatures abnormally cool for 
this time of year. If this forecast holds...next weekend looks dry 
and relatively cool...which should allow for a very pleasant 
weekend to head outdoors.
