NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1131 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Aviation... 
challenges still remain regarding ceilings and if cap can moisten and 
lift enough for isolated showers toward sunrise near airports with 
approaching and weakening mesoscale convective vortex over west central Texas. This 
activity is being driven by shortwaves moving quickly northeast 
out of Mexico toward far West Texas. Have very low confidence in 
ceilings going below VFR with mixing from approaching lift and nothing 
seen upstream near the Gulf. Will hold to VFR and expect most 
activity to be either sprinkles or virga by the time it arrives 
here toward sunrise. Otherwise...light S/southeast winds 6 kts or less 
will increase by late morning to around 10 kts. Did throw in vcsh 
in the extended period after 00z Monday as cap continues lifting 
weakening and system approaches from the west. 


05/ 


&& 


Update... 
kfws 00z sounding indicates a substantial layer of warm air between 
800 and 700 mb. The warm layer also extend much farther southwest 
based on how storms are struggling as they move east out of the 
Permian Basin. We do expect the cap to weaken overnight and Sunday 
due to increasing large scale lift from the ejecting short wave. 
It appears that the best rain and storm chances across North 
Texas will hold off until Sunday afternoon/Sunday night. 


The current forecast is in good shape and no update is needed at 
this time.

Previous discussion... /issued 252 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014/ 
broad upper trough...currently located in Baja California region...will 
gradually lift east and northeast across the southern rockies and 
then across OK/Texas by late Monday. This trough...and associated 
smaller-scale impulses...will bring several rounds of convection 
to north and central Texas from late tonight through Monday night. 


Lead impulse...associated with convection in far West Texas this 
afternoon...will weaken as it moves east northeast tonight. Widely 
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will spread into western 
sections of North Texas after midnight...with isolated showers as 
far east at the Interstate 35 corridor by sunrise Sunday morning. 


For Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening...the coverage of showers 
and thunderstorms will increase across the area as the larger 
scale upper trough moves into West Texas. Will forecast highest 
probability of precipitation across the north and taper probability of precipitation to slight chance category in 
the central Texas zones. Mesoscale model output suggests that a 
cluster of showers and elevated thunderstorms will move across 
western and northern sections of North Texas Sunday afternoon and 
Sunday night. This output seems reasonable and appears to be 
related to best large scale forcing for ascent seen in 500-300 mb 
q-vector convergence forecasts from several operational models. Will 
forecast likely probability of precipitation in the region from Graham to Gainesville. A 
strong storm with small hail and gusty winds is not out of the 
question for Sunday afternoon and Sunday night in these areas. 
However...the threat for severe thunderstorms Sunday afternoon and 
Sunday night is expected to remain across West Texas where 
surface-based storms can develop near the dryline and along the 
upper trough axis. These severe...surface-based storms are expected 
to weaken drastically as they approach the western County Warning Area late Sunday 
night. 


The potential for an episode of severe weather is increasing for 
parts of north and central Texas on Monday. Subsidence early in 
the day should lead to breaks in the cloud cover...allowing 
insolation to help push surface based convective available potential energy to over 2000 j/kg 
locally. With upper trough in the area and at least moderate 
instability...chances for multicell clusters of strong to severe 
thunderstorms will increase by afternoon. Will keep probability of precipitation at 40-50 
percent over a large part of North Texas on Monday as convective 
development focuses along a slowly advancing cold front. The most 
likely areas for severe storms will be tied to regions of 
strongest instability...the exact timing/location of the upper 
trough... and best convergence along the cold front. At this 
time...the favored region for severe storms on Monday looks to be 
east of Interstate 35 and north of Interstate 20. 


Scattered showers and storms will end from northwest to southeast 
late Monday night as the cold front moves into south Texas. Large 
scale subsidence behind the departing trough should lead to mostly 
clear skies and quiet weather Tuesday and Wednesday. 


The next chances for showers and thunderstorms will be Wednesday 
night into Thursday night. A progressive trough will move into the 
intermountain west on Wednesday...then move into the plains on 
Thursday. The strongest large scale forcing for ascent looks to 
remain well north of Texas...so will keep probability of precipitation at or below 30 
percent at this time. However...prospects for at least moderate 
instability and perhaps a dryline in the area could lead to an 
episode of severe thunderstorms Thursday afternoon into Thursday 
evening. 


Dry weather and above-normal high temperatures are forecast for 
next Friday and Saturday as the trough moves east of the area and 
largely zonal flow dominates the central Continental U.S..
