Corrected tornado start and end time.

... NWS damage survey for 04/24/15 tornado and high winds event...

.Overview... One tornado has been confirmed by a storm survey team from
the National Weather Service office. Several other areas of
damaging winds were noted across much of the dfw metroplex.
Maximum winds were in the 80 to 85 mph range... while the confirmed
tornado produced EF-0 damage. The bulk of the damage from the
storms last evening were from straight line winds. 80 mph winds
were noted in an area between Godley and Joshua. The majority of
the damage was located in a small area approximately four miles to
the northwest of the city of Joshua. In this area... the survey
team was not able to completely rule out the possibility of a
brief tornado... there was no overwhelming evidence in the damage
pattern... radar data... or eyewitnesses. There was also extensive
wind damage across the southern portions of Tarrant County... where
several trees were damaged or uprooted. The majority of this
damage was noted in or near Benbrook... as well as the south side
of the city of Fort Worth. Other damage areas were noted in the
northeast part of the city of Fort Worth and Arlington. Maximum
wind speeds were in the 80 to 85 mph range.

In summary from the storms last night... several areas of straight
line winds and one confirmed tornado in Ellis County.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
602 PM CDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions will prevail through 00z Monday. 


Southwesterly winds will prevail across the region through early 
Sunday afternoon. Winds will then become more southerly during 
the afternoon and southeasterly during the evening as a backdoor 
cold front approaches from the northeast. 


Isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop along the dry line 
in West Texas Sunday afternoon. Some of this activity may approach 
the I-35 corridor Sunday evening. Thus have placed thunderstorms in the vicinity in the 
extended portion of the dfw taf starting at 02z Monday.

Previous discussion... /issued 328 PM CDT Sat Apr 25 2015/ 
a Pacific cold front had moved through all of North Texas at middle 
afternoon. The dry air associated with this air mass will remain 
in place tonight but will steadily modify on Sunday in response to 
a developing low pressure system in the west. Large scale lift 
will be on the increase Sunday as an upper low moves across New 
Mexico. A dryline will also mix eastward on Sunday and should be 
the focus for some isolated thunderstorms in the west late Sunday 
afternoon. Any storms that develop Sunday afternoon should hold 
together as they lift northeast across the region Sunday night. 
Therefore we will keep chance probability of precipitation in place Sunday night with the 
best chances across the western half of the region. There will be 
enough instability and shear to support a few severe storms with 
large hail and damaging winds. The low level shear should be more 
than sufficient to even support an isolated tornado 
threat...especially late Sunday afternoon into early Sunday 
evening. 


Showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous on Monday as a 
cold front backdoor into the region from the northeast and the 
upper low moves into the Panhandle. The best rain/storm coverage 
should become oriented along and behind the cold front. There will 
be a potential for strong to severe storms on Monday but the 
bigger threat may be localized flooding...especially across the 
southeast zones where precipitable water values will exceed 1.5 
inches. 


Rain and thunderstorm chances will continue Monday evening but 
should decrease from southwest to northeast as the upper low moves 
east across Oklahoma and allows a much cooler and drier airmass to 
filter into the region. There is a potential for some wrap around 
showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday. All precipitation should 
end across North Texas Tuesday night as the dry air gets deeper 
and the upper low moves east. 


Upper level high pressure will build over the state Wednesday 
through Saturday and bring dry weather and near seasonal 
temperatures with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.
