Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:23 am CST on March 2, 2015


... Winter weather possible across North Texas mid week...

A cold Arctic airmass will spread south across north and central
Texas on Wednesday following the passage of a strong cold front.
With cold air already in place... an upper level disturbance will
generate mostly light precipitation across the region as it
approaches from the southwest. Rain will mix with and then changeover
to sleet across much of the region by the afternoon or evening
hours Wednesday. Some snow may mix with sleet Wednesday night
into Thursday morning... and some freezing rain will be a
possibility over the southeastern-most counties Wednesday night
and Thursday morning. Precipitation should come to an end by
Thursday afternoon as the upper level system moves east of the
region.

* Location... all of North Texas

* timing... Wednesday across mainly the northern half of North
Texas. Wednesday night across all of North Texas. Thursday
morning across mainly the southern half of North Texas.

* Precipitation type... mainly sleet... with some snow and freezing
rain possible.

* Accumulation and impacts... accumulations remain uncertain at
this time... but with temperatures dropping below freezing during
the afternoon it would take little to produce deteriorating Road
conditions and some travel delays by Wednesday evening.

Please monitor future forecasts regarding the potential for
winter weather across North Texas Wednesday through Thursday.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
346 am CST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Discussion... 


..cold and wet today...Warmer Tuesday...much colder and wintry 
precipitation possible for some areas Wednesday...Wednesday 
night and Thursday morning... 


Today... 
an upper low can be seen on the most recent satellite imagery 
spinning off the California coast. Southwesterly to southerly flow 
continues over North Texas east of the upper low. At the 
surface...shallow cold air will keep temperatures in the 30s and 
40s today. Theta-E surfaces indicate that the persistent 
isentropic ascent we have experienced over the weekend will 
continue once again today...providing low clouds and occasional 
light rain or drizzle. The best chances for precipitation will be 
along and east of the Interstate 35 corridor where the strongest 
lift resides. A few stations in the northwest counties are 
hovering around 32 this morning. Brief periods of freezing drizzle 
may produce light accumulations on elevated surfaces in these 
locations...but icy roads are not expected. 


Tuesday... 
return flow should make its way to the surface as a warm front 
lifts north across the region tonight...providing warmer 
conditions across North Texas on Tuesday. High temperatures will 
climb into the 60s for most areas...with a few 70s possible over 
the southern and western counties. Scattered showers will be 
possible across all areas with mainly light rainfall totals 
expected. 


A split flow regime will be in place across the Continental U.S. At this 
time. An upper trough in the northern stream will deepen across 
the northern and Central Plains...sending another southward surge 
of cold Arctic air into the Southern Plains. The front will 
approach the Red River Tuesday night but should remain just north 
of North Texas. A few thunderstorms will be possible...primarily 
over the northeast counties where lift associated with the upper 
trough will be strongest. 


Wednesday and Wednesday night... 
the front will push south through North Texas on 
Wednesday...crossing the Red River in the morning and clearing 
our southern counties in the afternoon. Meanwhile...the upper low 
to our west will open up and travel east-northeast in the southern 
stream...crossing North Texas Wednesday night. It appears at this 
time that ascent associated with this feature will be strongest 
after the cold air is already in place...giving US another chance 
to see some winter weather Wednesday and Wednesday night. 


We continue to run into the issue of the amount of model 
discrepancies being high enough to cast uncertainty on the 
specifics of precipitation type/timing and accumulations. Exceptionally 
strong cold air advection at the surface is being advertised by 
the vast majority of available model guidance. At this time...it 
looks like rain will mix with sleet across the northern half of 
the region during the early to middle afternoon...then across the 
rest of the area during the late afternoon and evening. 
Precipitation would likely transition to all sleet as temperatures 
fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s /late afternoon in the north 
and evening in the south/. Temperature profiles still show the 
possibility of some snow mixing with sleet across the northern 
two-thirds of the region during the evening and overnight periods 
but confidence is fairly low on exactly where and when. Though 
accumulations of sleet and snow are uncertain...we do have enough 
information to know that some travel impacts are a possibility for 
most of North Texas Wednesday and Wednesday night. More details 
will be uncovered as we monitor the approaching system over the 
next few days. 


Rest of the week... 
a chance for wintry precipitation will linger across the southern 
half of the region Thursday morning...then the shortwave will move 
east of the area later in the day. Another southern stream low 
will develop over northwest Mexico on the heels of our midweek 
system. Low end chances for rain will occur across the southern 
counties over the weekend as this system weakens and moves east 
across south Texas.

Aviation... 
/issued 1121 PM CST sun Mar 1 2015/ 
/06z tafs/ 


Challenges continue to be the warm air advection above the frontal inversion 
around 4 kft and -ra/-dz and affect on cigs/vsbys. 


Dfw metropolitan continue to be low MVFR despite the onset of some spotty 
-ra/-dz. So will start p6sm with low MVFR with tempo IFR ceilings 
through 09z...then pull ceilings down into lower IFR with occasional 
-dz or -ra. Have pulled LIFR conds out of forecast despite them 
occurring across central Texas and will go down as low as 600 feet and 
let middle shift reassess...as north winds maintaining around 10 kts 
should keep the near surface layer a little more mixed than this 
time 24 hours ago. 


Waco current LIFR with IFR visibilities and will maintain that through 
15z...then slowly bring them up to IFR ceilings/MVFR visibilities by midday 
and afternoon. 


The surface ridge should finally begin sliding east-southeast of the area 
after 00z Tuesday or Monday evening...with wind speeds lessoning. The 
near surface layer will remain saturated and though we could see 
LIFR ceilings and some fog...have decided to play it conservative with 
IFR ceilings/visibility for this far out.
