NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
629 am CDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Aviation... 
showers associated with a passing short wave will continue to move 
slowly south across North Texas through the day. These elevated 
showers should have minimal impacts to aviation weather overall. 
There is an outside chance of a brief thunderstorm through sunset. 
However...only isolated coverage is expected. 


VFR conditions will prevail through Sunday morning with middle/upper 
level ceilings expected through the day. Clouds should lift and 
scatter tonight as drier air moves in from the northwest. 


A south wind will prevail through tonight at speeds generally less 
than 12 knots. A weak cold front will approach the metroplex taf 
sites Sunday morning. However...all North Texas taf sites should 
stay in south flow through Sunday morning.

Previous discussion... /issued 309 am CDT Sat Aug 29 2015/ 
expect minimal changes to our sensible weather over the next week. 
With the exception of the low rain chances in the forecast for 
today...another dry forecast in on tap for north and central 
Texas. Afternoon highs will climb into the 90s and overnight lows 
will dip into the 70s...which is about normal for this time of 
year. 


A shortwave and pendant cold front is approaching from the north. 
The surface boundary is prognosticated to stall near the Red River today 
before washing out this weekend. A few showers and possibly a 
storm or two...may affect North Texas today because of this 
pattern. However...do not expect widespread or organized 
convection for our area. As of 8z /3 am/...the shower activity 
that had developed overnight near the Red River was elevated and 
likely not reaching the ground in most locations. As the lower 
levels saturate though...some light rain may begin to reach the 
surface. 


Otherwise...expect the low that has developed off of the Gulf 
Coast of la/MS to slide northward next week and bring rainfall to 
East Texas...just outside of our forecast area. The upper level 
high pressure currently to our west will broaden but remain 
centered to our west. This pattern will help provide our seasonal 
temperatures and mostly dry weather.
