NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1120 PM CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Aviation... 
light north winds will veer to the east overnight and eventually 
to the southeast after sunrise as the surface ridge currently 
parked overhead shifts east of the region. Southeast winds will 
increase to around 10 knots after 15z Friday. Otherwise...weak ridging 
aloft will provide quiet weather conditions for the next 24 to 36 
hours with only intermittent high clouds expected. 


30 


&& 


Update... 
a tranquil and pleasant night is in store as a weak surface high 
slides into the Texarkana region. Light winds...generally clear 
skies and dry air will allow temperatures to fall into the 50s...and 
upper 40s in some outlying areas. Forecast is on track and no 
update required. Tr.92 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 354 PM CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014/ 
water vapor imagery shows a powerful upper trough moving through 
the Southern Plains this afternoon with scattered thunderstorms 
ongoing to the east of this feature. At the surface...a cold front 
is moving through North Texas and is clearly visible on area 
radars extending from near Killeen to Corsicana and northeast to 
Paris. Behind the front...winds are gusty out of the northwest and 
dewpoints are in the 30s and 40s. Water vapor imagery and amdar 
sounding data indicate a substantial amount of dry air wrapping 
around the Southern Plains upper low into North Texas. This will 
likely suppress convection across the area through this evening 
despite the presence of the frontal boundary. Winds are expected 
to diminish quickly this evening with temperatures falling into 
the low to middle 50s tonight. 


Tomorrow will be a quiet day weather wise across North Texas for 
most people but several subtle transitions will be taking place 
through the day which will lead to an active weekend including the 
threat for significant severe weather over the weekend. 


At the surface...drier air behind todays front will be in place 
during the morning hours. The surface high pressure center will 
shift east during the day allowing southerly flow to reestablish 
itself by Friday afternoon beneath weak shortwave ridging. Rich 
Gulf moisture never really gets scoured out behind todays front so 
getting it back into North Texas prior to the weekend should be no 
problem given the strength of the upstream upper low. 


By Friday night...an axis of high 850mb Theta-E air will surge 
northward via the low level jet across west-central Texas into 
southwest Oklahoma. As stronger upstream height falls spread into 
West Texas early Saturday...low level wind fields will strengthen 
with southerly winds transporting a plume of 65 degree dewpoints 
northward into North Texas by Saturday afternoon. At the same time 
a sharpening dryline will be located across western Oklahoma 
southward toward Abilene and to near San Angelo. An axis of 
surface based cape in excess of 3000 j/kg will set up just east of 
the dryline Saturday afternoon. While the main upper low will lag 
behind a bit across the 4-corners region...all of the available 
model guidance indicates that large scale forcing for ascent and 
forcing along the dryline will be sufficient to break the cap and 
allow thunderstorms to develop late Saturday afternoon. Initiation 
should be between 22-00z just west of our County Warning Area. Given an environment 
characterized by strong wind fields and high instability...these 
storms will be supercellular in nature posing a significant 
damaging wind and large hail threat. As the early evening GOES on 
these storms will move into our western counties so will have the 
highest probability of precipitation Saturday just after 00z west of Interstate 35. At 
this time it appears that right near sunset until about 10pm 
Saturday...as stronger height falls overspread the region...low 
level wind fields will continue to strengthen. The low level jet 
will increase to around 55kts by 3z. This strengthening of the low 
level winds enhances the 0-3km hodograph into a strongly curved 
clockwise shape during the evening across the western and 
northwest counties in our County Warning Area. This would help keep supercells 
surface based by keeping a strong influx of low level moisture going. 
In addition this would significantly enhance the tornado threat 
across the west/northwest counties into late Saturday evening. By 
midnight as storms continue east they will encounter stronger 
capping and eventually become decoupled from the boundary layer 
nearly eliminating the tornado threat. It is unclear at this time 
whether a cluster of elevated storms will persist very late 
Saturday night and this will have significant impacts on the 
forecast for Sunday. 


By Sunday...assuming that most of the thunderstorms encounter 
increasing inhibition and die late Saturday night...another round 
of severe weather could be in store for areas generally along and 
east of Interstate 35. With the upper low rapidly ejecting into 
the Central Plains...the dryline will mix east rather quickly on 
Sunday...however the NAM and higher resolution guidance has had a 
tendency to mix the dryline too far east too quickly. Will lean 
toward the GFS/European model (ecmwf) handling of the dryline...and think it will 
be positioned somewhere near I-35 by midday Sunday. This will 
leave a very unstable airmass across the eastern counties 
coincident with strong forcing from the upper low. Scattered 
severe thunderstorms are expected to develop early in the 
afternoon from Dallas eastward into the arklatex. There is much 
more uncertainty to sundays forecast...but the main gist of things 
for Sunday is...wherever the dryline is located...thunderstorms 
are a good bet east of there during the afternoon. Convection 
should move out of our area by Sunday evening. 


The upper low appears to get cut off across the central U.S. Early 
next week keeping North Texas in a drier west/northwest flow aloft.
