Previous discussion... /issued 344 PM CDT Thursday may 28 2015/ 
scattered convection will continue to develop across North Texas 
this afternoon/early evening ahead of an approaching short wave. 
The atmosphere is moist and unstable as noted by the 18z forward 
sounding with surface based cape values over 3500 j/kg. The flow 
is fairly weak through the middle levels of the atmosphere so storms 
that do form will be fairly slow moving and efficient rain 
producers. Therefore...flash flooding will be possible with any 
storms that develop. The early convection should diminish with 
the loss of surface heating. However...another round of convection 
will be organizing in West Texas late this afternoon and will 
approach the western zones later this evening and move east 
across the County Warning Area overnight. These storms will be heavy rain and wind 
producers and this will likely lead to flash flooding in many 
locations. We have decided to expand the current Flash Flood Watch 
to include all North Texas counties. The watch will start at 6 PM 
tonight and run through Saturday morning. 


We have kept likely probability of precipitation in place Friday morning to account for 
the possibility of a later arrival of the West Texas storms. 
However...there is a good chance that the squall line could 
advance out ahead of the short wave Friday morning and leave much 
if not all of North Texas in subsidence during the day Friday. 


Once the upper trough axis moves east of the region Friday 
afternoon it will allow a cold front to enter into North Texas. 
The front will provide the focus for additional showers and 
thunderstorms Friday night through Saturday. Storms chances should 
decrease from north to south Saturday afternoon as the dry/cool air 
behind the front deepens. There may be some lingering showers and 
thunderstorms Saturday night through Sunday morning across the 
southeast half of the area. However...upper level high pressure 
will begin building in from the west and should bring an end to 
all precipitation chances by Sunday evening. 


The extended models have been in fairly good agreement with 
regards to the weather pattern across North Texas early next week 
with upper level ridging over the state and low level moisture 
remaining in the Gulf. This should bring a temporary end to 
precipitation chances. However...the GFS continues to develop a 
cut off low under the ridge and Parks it near the lower 
Mississippi Valley through the end of the week. If this pattern 
verifies it would result in some precipitation chances across the 
eastern zones. For now...we will leave probability of precipitation low for the middle of 
next week and confine them only to the extreme eastern zones. 
Overall...next week looks much drier and warmer with highs in the 
80s and lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
