The Texas commission on environmental quality (tceq) has issued
an ozone action day for the Dallas-Fort Worth area for Tuesday,
July 22, 2014.

Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing
high levels of ozone air pollution in the Dallas-Fort Worth area

ride, walking, riding a bicycle, taking your lunch to work,
avoiding drive-through lanes, conserving energy, and keeping your
vehicle properly tuned.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
141 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Aviation... 


For the 18z tafs...VFR conditions are expected through the valid 
forecast period. 


The primary aviation weather concerns over the next 24 to 30 hours 
are wind direction at area airports...and then a small chance of 
thunderstorms towards the end of the dfw taf. 


With regards to the wind direction...the 12z upper air analysis 
identified an anticyclone at the 850 mb level centered roughly 
over Childress...TX. This caused 850 mb winds to switch from the 
south to the east-northeast over the past 12 to 18 hours. The 
surface pressure gradient has become extremely weak to nearly non- 
existent across North Texas...allowing the wind direction/speeds 
from aloft to largely determine the vector of the surface winds. 


As a result...surface winds that were expected to remain 
southeasterly have more or less mirrored the 850 mb winds early 
this afternoon. Winds are expected to remain light...around 5 miles per hour 
or less through this evening...but probably will hold on to a east 
or northeasterly component. Winds will probably become southerly 
again after midnight tonight as the nocturnal inversion 
strengthens...limiting the ability for wind direction aloft to 
strongly influence the surface winds. The surface pressure 
gradient slightly favors a southeast wind...so went ahead with 
that after midnight. Very light winds will likely continue 
throughout the day tomorrow as well. 


With regards to thunderstorm chances late Wednesday 
afternoon...forecast soundings show that air parcels will become 
convectively unstable by 6 PM tomorrow afternoon. There will be 
some lift moving into the area...but from the northeast and 
probably after sunset. Left thunderstorms out of the end of the 
dfw taf for now because lift is expected to come in after the peak 
heating hours of the day...reducing confidence in storms impacting 
airports late tomorrow afternoon. Any storms that develop will 
likely move into the area from the north or northeast to the south 
or southwest. This is a very non-traditional storm motion for this 
area...and is something that interested parties should be aware of 
for flight planning and radar monitor purposes tomorrow afternoon 
and evening. 




&& 


Update... 
warm and muggy conditions this morning will lead to another 
uncomfortable afternoon across North Texas. Though conditions will 
remain rather humid this afternoon...the low and middle 70s dewpoints 
currently in place should at least fall into the upper 60s this 
afternoon...keeping heat indices in the 100-105 degree range and 
just below heat advisory criteria. Otherwise...an isolated storm 
or two will be possible over the southeastern counties later this 
afternoon. No changes to the forecast are anticipated at this 
time.

Previous discussion... /issued 349 am CDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014/ 
water vapor shows the well advertised upper level anticyclone 
gaining strength over eastern New Mexico...but also of interest is 
a developing TUTT low centered over Mobile. 850mb analysis 
depicts what could be argued as a cold front that is draped along 
the Louisiana coastline to near Mobile. Latest satellite actually 
confirms the presence of a low level convergence boundary 
indicated by a band of clouds which begins across the Palestine 
area and extends southeast to the Gulf Coast where vigorous 
convection has developed overnight. Since this weak boundary 
should hang across the southeast counties today...will maintain a 
mention of isolated convection there this afternoon and evening. 
Across the remainder of North Texas...strong subsidence from the 
intensifying upper level high to our northwest and limited deep 
layer moisture will ensure a dry and hot forecast. 


Model guidance keeps low level thickness values nearly steady 
through the next 2 to 3 days...so expect highs to stay fairly 
close to yesterday/S readings with just a slow daily warming 
trend. Also dewpoints should mix out a few more degrees this 
afternoon...so the heat index should be a bit lower than Monday. 


On Wednesday a shortwave trough will drop down the eastern fringe 
of the upper high and through the Ozarks. There is good model 
agreement that this will set off convection Wednesday afternoon 
across Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. With 30kt northeasterly flow 
at 500mb...this activity will make a run at the County Warning Area Wednesday 
evening. Most model guidance now indicates some quantitative precipitation forecast over the 
northeast half of the County Warning Area Wednesday evening...and therefore will 
maintain the forecast of 30 percent probability of precipitation in the northeast zones 
tapering down to 20 percent or less farther to the southwest. 


On Thursday the aforementioned TUTT low will move west and into 
south Texas...providing some weak lift for an enhancement of 
isolated diurnal convection. Moisture will be best for areas east 
of I-35 and this is where 20 probability of precipitation will be advertised. Low level 
moisture will be a little higher Thursday which will increase the 
chance that heat index values will reach 105 for more locations. 


The upper level high will begin to shift slightly eastward by 
Friday and subsidence increases over the region...resulting in 
further warming of low level thickness values. Highs should be 
around 100 degrees for most of North Texas Friday into Sunday. 
Dewpoints will likely remain high enough to put heat index values 
in the 103 to 108 degree range during the afternoon. A heat 
advisory will probably be required for some portion of the County Warning Area by 
this time. 


The upper level high will back off to the west by Monday as a 
trough deepens over the eastern US. This will allow for a weak 
cold front to move into the region early next week. Temperatures 
should cool slightly...and the front may result in a slight chance 
of rain Monday. With northwest flow aloft developing by Tuesday or 
Wednesday of next week...it is possible that our rain chances may 
increase a bit more in 8 or 9 days...but no promises at this time.
