NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
400 PM CST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Discussion... 
a cold front is sweeping through North Texas. Postfrontal 
temperatures have fallen into the 50s north and northwest of the 
Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Ahead of the boundary...where winds 
have veered to the southwest...temperatures have soared into the 
70s. The warm sunny weather will be short-lived...with cold air 
filtering into central and East Texas this evening. 


A strongly amplified middle-level trough is digging into West Texas. 
The expanding canopy of middle clouds is evidence of the lift 
associated with this feature. This trough will swing through the 
Lone Star state tonight and Tuesday...with cold air invading at 
the surface. At a glance...this might appear to have the makings 
of a winter weather event. But even with saturation and adequate 
lift within the dendritic growth zone...the postfrontal air in the 
low-levels still appears to be too warm for snow at the surface. 
Across Oklahoma and Kansas...late morning temperatures had already 
exceeded normal highs for this time of year despite gusty 
northerly winds. Although middle clouds have somewhat obscured the 
sun...considerable moderating of the postfrontal air mass 
continues...with afternoon temperatures also above seasonal 
normals. Based on these trends upstream...it appears sufficiently 
cold low-level air is unlikely to be in place during this event. 


12z guidance was much more bullish on the intensity and areal 
coverage of the resulting precipitation...with the 18z runs 
concurring. With increasing confidence...rain chances have been 
significantly increased. Precipitation above the 850mb front will 
enter western zones as early as this evening...spreading eastward 
across North Texas Tuesday morning. Strong frontogenetic forcing 
850-700mb will result in banded precipitation that will pivot 
counterclockwise as the day progresses. Although thermal profiles 
are unsupportive of deep upright convection...this slantwise 
instability can enhance precipitation efficiency. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts 
generally range from 1/10 to 1/2 inch...with the highest amounts 
along the I-20 corridor where the duration of precipitation is 
expected to be maximized. 


When updrafts occur in an environment of elevated cape sufficient 
to produce lightning...this thermal profile could support a 
sleet/hail hybrid of ice pellets in the stronger cells. However... 
in precipitation bands resulting from conditional symmetric instability 
(csi)...the vertical motions are less vigorous. Even in the 
presence of graupel...lightning is unlikely to occur. However... 
snow will be generated in large quantities in these updrafts. 
While it is possible that some of these wet flakes could reach the 
surface...it will be difficult to overcome the warmer boundary 
layer. At this time...it appears these slow-falling flakes will 
have a long journey through a 3000-4000ft layer of air within 
which temperatures will be above freezing. During the precipitation... 
surface temperatures will be generally in the 40s. As a result...we have 
maintained a forecast with only liquid rain. 


After the shortwave swings past...another reinforcing shot of cold 
air will invade. Cloud cover may linger Tuesday night...but there 
is the potential for a freeze in western counties Wednesday 
morning. A more widespread freeze likely Christmas morning. Despite 
the chilly start to the day on Thursday...afternoon temperatures 
should reach the 60s across nearly all of north and central Texas. 
Relative humidity values will fall below 35 percent regionwide... 
with gusty south winds. Even with a wetting rain on Tuesday... 
dormant vegetation could be sufficiently dried to be conducive to 
fire initiation and spread. 


The progressive pattern will continue with another cold front 
arriving Friday or Friday night. Current forecast favors the 
faster GFS/Canadian...with a Friday afternoon frontal passage. A trailing 
shortwave will swing through on Saturday...with chilly postfrontal 
temperatures. Although forecast lows may dip to near freezing in 
northwest zones...will keep all of the precipitation in liquid 
form at this time. The precipitation should come to an end before 
temperatures fall below freezing across much of the region Sunday 
morning.

Aviation... 
/issued 1155 am CST Monday Dec 22 2014/ 


For the 18z tafs...timing the wind shift associated with a cold 
frontal passage at the start of the forecast period...and timing 
the onset of rain tomorrow morning are the primary forecast 
challenges. 


A cold front was moving across the dfw area between 17 and 
18z...so started the tafs off assuming the front had just passed 
through most local area airports beginning at 18z. Winds will 
initially be west-northwest behind the leading edge of the 
front...but should veer to the northwest a couple of hours behind 
the front. The strength of the winds while out of the west- 
northwest are expected to be weak enough to prevent significant 
crosswind issues. 10-15 knots winds are expected during this time. 
Winds will likely pick up to 15 kts with some higher gusts once 
winds veer to the northwest later this afternoon. 


The consensus of 12z model data has caused a significant increase 
in the forecast confidence for rain across the dfw area tomorrow 
morning. Morning deterministic model runs all show a very strong 
band of frontogenetic forcing from 850 to 700 mb sloped over the 
dfw area tomorrow morning. Models also show that the atmosphere is 
conditionally unstable to sloped vertical motions along this 
elevated front...so expect banded light to moderate rain shower 
activity to impact the tafs for much of the period between 12 and 
18z tomorrow. 


Models are cold enough for snow from near the 850 mb level 
upwards...so once aircraft climb above the 850 mb level...they 
will be doing so through light to moderate snowfall. However...all 
model guidance has the atmosphere below the 850 mb level well 
above freezing...so all snow is expected to melt before reaching 
the ground at this time. Model dew points at the surface are in 
the lower 40s...so confidence in all all-liquid forecast is fairly 
high. Also...upstream surface observations across the Central 
Plains are in the mid-40s...so there's really no reason for 
significant cooling in the lower atmosphere over the next 24 
hours. 


Rainfall is expected to end from northwest to southeast across the 
region tomorrow afternoon. Forecast soundings show ceilings holding at 
VFR levels at this time...although periods of MVFR ceilings cannot be 
ruled out during heavier bands of rainfall.
