NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
647 am CDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Aviation... 
main challenge in the forecast today is the potential for 
convection. Model guidance is really struggling with convection 
and the various guidance is all over place as far as timing and 
placement of activity through the next 30 hours. Most of the 
guidance has performed very poorly during the last 24 hours and is 
also not aligning with current trends. It appears the westerly 
flow in the low levels is responsible for keeping most of the 
region dry...but these winds are forecast to back to a more 
southerly direction this afternoon. Also expect a little more 
surface heating today which could interact with a weak boundary 
aloft and the tail end of forcing from the shortwave trough moving 
across the Ozarks. At this point think there is enough potential 
to show a thunderstorms in the vicinity in the taf during peak heating from 21z-00z. 


Otherwise southerly flow at 7-13kt will prevail with VFR 
conditions outside of any influences from convective activity.

Previous discussion... /issued 300 am CDT Sat Jul 4 2015/ 
a Broad View of the Continental U.S. Reveals an upper trough extending from 
the Great Lakes southward to the Tennessee Valley...with the base 
of the trough tailing westward into the Southern Plains. A 
combination of lift associated with the upper level feature...a 
stationary front...and outflow from earlier showers and 
thunderstorms continues to allow nocturnal convection to persist 
across central and southeast Oklahoma early this morning. As these 
mesoscale boundaries push south...we will likely see showers and 
storms develop across the northeastern quadrant of North Texas 
late this morning and into the afternoon. 


Some of the computer models continue to advertise more widespread 
convection across the rest of the region...but the most recent 
trends indicate otherwise. It is possible that the veered winds at 
the lower levels may be hindering development the farther south 
and west of the upper trough you go. Whatever the case...a few 
models such as the nam12 and the Texas tech WRF appear to be 
handling the current pattern pretty well and we will use them as a 
starting point for today/S probability of precipitation...with the highest near 
Paris...and the lowest near Lampasas. If outflow pushes farther 
southwest than planned we will adjust probability of precipitation accordingly. 


Anyway...moisture and instability will be sufficient to allow a 
few storms to become strong with gusty winds and heavy rain. 
For the evening festivities...convection should behave similar to 
last night with activity diminishing around sunset as surface 
heating wanes. Isolated storms may persist into the night across 
the east and northeast counties where lift from the trough will be 
strongest. 


Most activity will have shifted east of the region by 
Sunday...and generally hot and dry conditions are expected on 
Monday. Flow becomes more zonal on Tuesday...and a weak shortwave 
is prognosticated to move east across the Southern Plains Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms associated with 
the shortwave will affect mainly the northern half of the region 
on Tuesday...with isolated thunderstorms lingering Wednesday as 
the weak feature exits to the east. A strengthening upper ridge 
will provide seasonably hot and rain-free conditions during the 
second half of next week and into next weekend.
