NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
327 PM CDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Discussion... 
upper level high pressure will continue to build west tonight 
while a trough deepens across the Central Plains. The upper trough 
will move into the Red River region tonight and bring increasing 
large scale lift and increasing middle level winds. This will result 
in the development of some thunderstorms across Oklahoma and the 
eastern Texas Panhandle. Storms that develop this evening will 
move southeast toward North Texas overnight. Locations north of 
Interstate 20 will have the highest storm chances overnight. We 
expect the overnight activity to be ongoing Friday morning and 
also produce some outflow boundaries which will most likely become 
initiation points for additional convection Friday afternoon. A 
few storms may become severe with large hail and damaging 
winds...especially across the northeast where instability and middle 
level winds will be most favorable. 


Thunderstorm chances will continue Friday night through Saturday 
as short wave energy rotates trough the base of the upper trough. 
Locations north of the Interstate 20 corridor and east of 
Interstate 35 will have the best forcing and therefore the highest 
probability of precipitation. We will also linger some low chance probability of precipitation across the eastern 
half of the region Sunday as another piece of energy moves through 
northwest flow aloft. 


The upper level ridge will begin to build in from the west Sunday 
night and Monday...and bring decreasing precipitation chances. 
A cold front is also prognosticated to move into Oklahoma and the Texas 
Panhandle Monday night. Storms are expected to develop on the cold 
front and move southeast into North Texas overnight Monday through 
Tuesday. Locations west of the Interstate 35 corridor will have 
the best precipitation chances on Tuesday. 


The upper ridge will build over the central Continental U.S. From middle week 
through next weekend and bring decreasing precipitation chances. 
And slightly warmer temperatures. Several locations should reach 
the upper 90s by Thursday or Friday of next week.

Aviation... 
/issued 1249 PM CDT Thursday Jul 2 2015/ 


Concerns...chance for MVFR ceilings at kact late tonight-early 
Friday and potential for convection affecting the dfw terminals on 
Friday. 


Gusty south-southwest winds will continue through today and then 
diminish for the overnight periods at all taf sites. 


Convection across Oklahoma tonight will work southward through 
Friday morning. Some rain showers activity may move into and across 
portions of the the metroplex and could affect a few taf 
sites...mainly kdfw and kdal through 18z. Afternoon heating should 
produce a few thunderstorms and rain close kdfw...but chances of a direct hit are low 
and will not include in this taf release. If convection reaches 
any one of the metroplex taf sites...then ceilings should go MVFR for 
a few hours. Otherwise...expect metroplex ceilings to remain VFR. 


On the other hand...a layer of MVFR ceilings /015-025 bkn-ovc/ should 
move across kact late tonight through late Friday morning. These 
ceilings should move north-northeast and stay just southeast of the 
metroplex. 75
