NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
359 am CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Discussion... 
water vapor satellite imagery shows the upper level low over Baja California 
moving east. The 3 am surface analysis indicated a strong cold 
front extended from near Fort Smith Arkansas southwest through 
Wichita Falls to Clovis New Mexico. This front will sweep through 
the forecast area today...extending near a Paris to Cleburne to 
Comanche line around daybreak and move through Palestine to 
Killeen early to middle afternoon. Expect temperatures to be steady 
or slowly fall with the initial frontal passage with a bigger drop 
a few hours thereafter. The freezing line should be near a 
Gainesville to Graham line by midday and extend from near Paris to 
Cleburne and Brownwood by sunset. The freezing line should be 
through all but the extreme southeastern counties by midnight 
tonight. 


As temperatures cool...the rain should change over to freezing 
rain and sleet this afternoon starting in the northwestern 
counties...and spreading toward a Paris to dfw to Comanche line by 
sunset. There will strong broadscale lift associated with the 
aforementioned upper level low tonight. Strong frontogenetic 
forcing aloft should also result in the development of some 
convection tonight. This will increase the potential for locally 
heavy sleet and snow across the northwestern half of the forecast 
area. Thus we have decided to upgrade the Winter Weather Advisory 
to a Winter Storm Warning along and northwest of a Goldthwaite to 
Canton line. Freezing rain and sleet across the southern part of 
the warning area may also reach criteria. Have left the Winter 
Weather Advisory for the southern part of the forecast area as 
is... including the Waco Temple-Killeen and Palestine areas where 
freezing rain will be the main issue tonight...with some light 
sleet and snow possible late tonight into Thursday morning. 


It will be dry but cold Thursday afternoon through Thursday 
night. Temperatures will then start to moderate Friday. 
There will be some low rain chances Saturday into Sunday as a 
shortwave slides across south Texas. Temperatures 
warming back to near seasonal normals by Monday as the upper level 
flow becomes more zonal.
