NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
333 PM CDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Discussion... 
a nearly solid area of elevated showers and thunderstorms has 
developed this afternoon across parts of northwest Texas. At 3 
PM...the activity was bounded roughly by Wichita Falls... 
Bridgeport and Abilene. Additional showers and storms were 
developing near Coleman and Brownwood. All activity was moving 
northeast at around 40 miles per hour. The forecast for tonight will feature 
the highest probability of precipitation across the northern areas...with likely category 
near the Red River...with only a slight chance in the far south. 
Some of these elevated storms could produce small hail along with 
frequent lightning...but pose a minimal severe threat. We will 
continue to watch for surface-based storm development near the 
dryline in West Texas...but chances are that any such strong to 
severe storms will diminish drastically before reaching as far 
east as Graham or Breckenridge late this evening. 


Models are in good agreement that the strong upper forcing for 
ascent...associated with the current convective activity...will 
begin moving east of the area after midnight. There may be a 
minimum in convective activity across the area from 3 am to noon 
on Monday. However...we cant rule out at least isolated 
development in any area during this time frame given proximity of 
upper trough across West Texas and continued ascent from low level 
warm air advection. 


Breaks in the clouds will lead to moderate to strong instability 
developing over much of north and central Texas on Monday 
afternoon. With temperatures around 80 and dew points in the low 
to middle 60s...surface based cape values should reach 2000 j/kg 
locally. Expect scattered to numerous thunderstorms to develop by 
early afternoon as mesoscale lift from cold front/windshift 
crosses the Red River. The strong instability and moderate deep 
layer shear of 30 knots will lead to multicell clusters of strong 
to severe storms...with a threat for damaging winds and large hail. 
Weak low level shear...cell mergers...and relatively strong storm 
outflow should limit the tornado threat to the first few hours 
after initiation in the early afternoon. The storms will likely 
spread east and southeast with the cold front...and gradually 
weaken as they concentrate in the east and southeast areas by 
midnight. 


Lingering showers in the extreme south will end early Tuesday. 
Clearing skies and above normal temperatures are forecast Tuesday 
afternoon in the subsident air behind the departing shortwave. Dry 
weather will continue through Wednesday afternoon...with lower and 
middle 80s forecast for highs in all areas. 


Next chances for showers and storms will arrive for the periods 
Wednesday night through Thursday night and Friday night through 
Sunday. Will keep probability of precipitation on the low side for the middle week system 
given only modest forcing at best from a fast moving plains 
shortwave. There is more uncertainty with regard to next weekends 
system...as medium range models depict a much deeper trough 
developing into the southern rockies by late in the weekend. Will 
forecast the highest probability of precipitation for North Texas on Sunday Apr 27...but 
will go no higher than 30 percent at this time given uncertainties 
with timing this far out.
