NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
351 am CDT sun may 1 2016 


Discussion... 
a very subtle shortwave ridge will build east of the region today 
while an upper level low approaches from the Desert Southwest. 
Large scale lift will increase across north and central Texas 
through tonight as the upper low opens up and lifts toward the 
Central Plains. The best surface based instability today will 
reside south of the forecast area in central and south Texas. 
However...models do indicate that the southeast zones will see 
some surface based cape between 1000 and 1500 j/kg by late this 
afternoon...so will keep some chance probability of precipitation mentioned. The severe 
potential appears fairly low overall...but if any storm were to 
approach severe limits it would be in the extreme southeast late 
this afternoon. 


Rain and thunderstorm chances will increase area wide tonight with 
increasing large scale upward vertical motion. However...the 
potential for surface based storms will decrease overnight and 
Monday as a reinforcement of dry and cool air filters in from the 
north with the passage of the upper trough axis. There will be 
enough middle level instability for elevated thunderstorms with 
lightning being the primary hazard. 


Precipitation chances will decrease from north to south through 
the afternoon Monday as the upper low translates slowly northeast 
as depth of the dry/cool air increases. The cold air advection 
coupled with extensive cloud cover Monday will result in a cool 
day for early may with highs mainly in the middle 60s and lower 
70s. 


Tuesday through Friday will be dry with a gradual warming trend as 
upper level high pressure amplifies over the central Continental U.S.. highs 
will generally be in the upper 70s and lower 80s with lows mainly 
in the 50s. 


The amplified upper ridge axis will translate east on Saturday 
while a strong upper low approaches from the western United 
States. A few showers and storms will be possible across the 
western zones Saturday afternoon/Saturday night with better storm 
chances expected by next Sunday. However...there is a very good 
chance that the upper low could remain cut off west of the region 
for several days which would keep the best precipitation chances 
west of north and central Texas as we head into the second week of 
may.

Aviation... 
/issued 1139 PM CDT Sat Apr 30 2016/ 
VFR conditions are expected to prevail at all taf sites overnight 
as light north winds continue to usher in drier air across the 
region. A swath of MVFR ceilings should develop tonight along and 
south of a stationary front draped through central Texas...some of 
which may manage to move into the Waco area after 12z Monday. 
Have accounted for this with a tempo group at this time with a low 
probability of these conditions materializing as far north as Waco. 


Wind speeds should increase Sunday morning with sustained 
north/northeast winds around 15 kts expected. An upper-level 
disturbance will move across the Central Plains Sunday 
evening...which will be capable of producing scattered showers 
and isolated storms primarily after midnight Sunday night into 
Monday morning. Have accounted for this with a mention of vcsh in 
the extended dfw taf as well as the Waco taf where showers may 
begin a few hours earlier than the dfw area sites. Thunder is more 
likely farther south where there should be more elevated 
instability in place...and may need to show thunderstorms in the vicinity at Waco in future 
taf issuances. Any storm that manages to form north of the 
stalled frontal zone closer to the dfw area should be isolated and 
short-lived. 


Depending on the coverage of showers and storms...widespread MVFR 
ceilings could be possible through much of Monday morning if numerous 
showers manage to develop. For now...will keep an optimistic 
forecast and not include prevailing MVFR ceilings in the extended dfw 
taf at this time. Expect any rain and storms to end from west to 
east Monday afternoon...outside of the current taf period.
