NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
704 PM CDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Aviation... 
/00z tafs/ 


No significant concerns...VFR throughout. 


Despite an unseasonably dry postfrontal boundary layer...the middle- 
levels will remain moist. A broken ac/as deck will prevail...the 
instability within which will be adequate for a few high-based 
showers. Still think the threat for thunder is far too low to 
mention. The bulk of the precipitation will be virga...which could 
result in some turbulence fl050-150. 


Winds will generally remain under 12kts. Easterly flow will 
steadily veer as the postfrontal surface high weakens and drifts 
eastward.

Previous discussion... /issued 347 PM CDT Sat Aug 1 2015/ 
temperatures this afternoon are in the 90s and dewpoints are in 
the 50s over most of North Texas...providing US a first-hand 
account on why the dry heat is better than our usual high humidity 
heat. An axis of deeper moisture continues to persist just west 
and northwest of the County Warning Area...however the lower levels are gradually 
drying out in this region too. This is lowering instability 
values...so the threat for thunderstorms will be low tonight 
across the northwest zones. However...the middle levels will remain 
nearly saturated which means some meager amounts of elevated 
instability will be present tonight and early Sunday. Radar and 
satellite loops depict a well-defined mesoscale convective vortex 
currently near Vernon...and this feature will continue to drop 
east-southeast through the overnight hours. The lift generated by 
this feature in the presence of the elevated moisture and weak 
instability warrants keeping slight chance probability of precipitation mentioned in the 
northwest zones tonight and Sunday morning. Some weak showers or 
sprinkles may make it as far southeast as the dfw metroplex Sunday 
morning. However the dry air in the lower levels will lead to more 
virga than any measurable rainfall. 


Otherwise another pleasant evening is expected for most of the 
region with low temperatures dropping below normal in most areas 
due to the drier air and light winds. After some middle level morning 
cloud cover Sunday...another hot and sunny day is expected. 
Humidity will again remain unusually low...making it feel more 
comfortable than the temperature forecast would indicate at first 
glance. Unfortunately the humidity will return Monday as the 
surface flow becomes more southerly. 


The upper level ridge will build back into the region from the 
west next week...but it will remain kind of flat and squashed by 
the upper level westerlies across the central US. This means the 
subsidence will not be overly prominent...so would not be 
surprised to see some very stray afternoon activity...especially 
along the Red River Tuesday through Thursday where the tail end of 
shortwave forcing may provide just enough lift for convection. 
Regardless...this chance looks too small to mention in the worded 
forecast at this time so have kept the forecast dry with 5-10 
percent probability of precipitation. Even though subsidence will not be very strong 
aloft with the weaker upper high...there will be more westerly 
flow just above the surface than what we saw during the last two 
weeks...so high temperatures will return to the 97 to 103 range over the 
County Warning Area. 


By next Saturday the medium range models are in good agreement 
that a weak front will approach the Red River counties and provide 
a slight chance of showers or storms over the northern and 
northeastern counties. Otherwise the upper ridge is forecast to 
strengthen after that...so hot and dry looks to be the rule well 
into middle August.
