NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
337 PM CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Discussion... 
the shortwave trough that brought the light rain showers overnight 
and this morning has moved off to the east. Strong subsidence is 
spreading into the region in the wake of this system and has 
resulted in generally clearing skies over most of the area. The 
exception is over the western zones where a cumulus cloud deck has 
developed...which may end up obscuring solar eclipse viewing for 
that area. These clouds should dissipate after sunset...but a 
layer of high relative humidity will remain near 850mb overnight which may 
result in scattered clouds redeveloping after midnight. 
Regardless...a pleasant evening is forecast with light winds and 
temperatures falling into the 50s for most of the County Warning Area. 


Tranquil weather will prevail through the weekend...but ridging 
developing aloft and lots of sunshine will result in temperatures 
warming well above normal. Highs Friday will reach the low to middle 
80s over the region...with highs on Saturday around 90 for many 
locations. The record high Saturday for dfw is 89 and it looks in 
reach...but the record for Waco is probably safe at 94. South 
winds will increase on Sunday and Monday which will result in high 
temperatures cooling a few degrees as Gulf moisture invades the region. 


A longwave trough will track across the plains early next week 
which will send a cold front into North Texas during the day 
Tuesday. A shortwave is expected to track across Oklahoma on 
Monday night and Tuesday morning which means convection will 
likely remain north of the County Warning Area. Subsidence behind the departing 
shortwave likely suggests that the front will move through dry. 
However a second...and more southerly tracking shortwave will 
approach the area from the west Tuesday night. This will cause the 
front to stall somewhere across central Texas with isentropic lift 
increasing ahead of the shortwave. The best combination of 
moisture and instability will exist over the southern half of the 
region where rain chances look best. Elevated instability looks 
high enough for a few thunderstorms...especially south of I-20. 
Since we are still a few days away...will keep probability of precipitation at 30 percent 
south of I-20...20 percent along I-20...and 10 percent over the northwest 
zones where the frontal layer may be too deep for rain. The 
chance of rain looks to continue into Wednesday before ending as 
the shortwave moves east of the area Wednesday evening. 


Temperatures behind the front will return to near normal...so no 
major cool down is expected with this front. Highs may end up being 
cooler than forecast over the southern zones Wednesday due to the 
clouds and possible rain...but confidence is not high enough yet 
to go lower than the middle 70s. 


Northwesterly flow aloft will set up by the end of next week which 
will ensure dry and clear weather. Temperatures should gradually 
cool a little more by next Friday as a Canadian high pressure 
system drops south into the plains and Midwest.

Aviation... 
/issued 1231 PM CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014/ 
no major concerns for this taf cycle. Middle level clouds were 
diminishing from west to east as effects of the shortwave trough 
move into AR/la. Expect mostly clear skies at all sites for this 
afternoon into this evening. There will be some chance for a thin 
layer of clouds around 5-6 kft to redevelop across parts of North 
Texas after midnight...but generally expect scattered clouds with 
perhaps an occasional VFR ceiling. Southeast flow will continue 
through Friday morning with speeds generally under 10 kts. 09/gp
