NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
848 am CDT Sat may 23 2015 


Aviation... 


Concerns...MVFR-IFR ceilings and convection. 


Moist southeasterly low level flow will keep area terminals under 
IFR-MVFR conditions through most of the forecast period. Scattered 
-dz/-ra and rain showers will affect kact and the metroplex terminals this 
morning. As we warm going into the afternoon...thunderstorms and rain will be more 
likely. A large complex of rain/thunderstorms and rain is developing to the west today 
and will spread east through Sunday in response to a deep upper 
trough moving through the southern/central rockies. Thus...the 
overnight and Sunday period will be one of near continuous 
moderate to heavy rain...strong convection and IFR-MVFR 
conditions. 


For dfw ground operations...Airport weather warnings for lightning 
overnight through Sunday evening should be planned for as 
lightning may be generally persistent once it begins this evening. 
Also...excessive rainfall of 1 to 3 inches or more is 
possible...and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect this afternoon 
through Sunday evening. 75 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 337 am CDT Sat may 23 2015/ 
dewpoints are creeping up across North Texas early this morning as 
a warm front move slowly north across the area. The boundary 
stretches roughly along or just north of the I-20 corridor and is 
expected to reach the Red River by midday. This is all in response 
to a strengthening Lee rockies surface cyclone...which itself has 
developed in response to a deep upper low over the 4-corners 
region. Water vapor imagery indicates a potent shortwave now 
rotating around the upper low across the Desert Southwest. 


Strong forcing from this shortwave has already begun to generate 
convection across eastern New Mexico and parts of southwest Texas. 
Showers and thunderstorms will likely spread east across west- 
central Texas this morning and begin to affect western counties of 
North Texas by midday. By that time...precipitable waters  will have jumped to 
just shy of two inches. Instability will be marginal today...but 
good lift associated with the initial shortwave combined with 
impressive moisture profiles should lead to scattered convection 
/containing many efficient rain-producing cells/ this afternoon. 
The Flash Flood Watch will begin area-wide today...though the best 
potential for convection will likely begin in the northwest where 
the strongest forcing resides. Cape of 1000-1500 j/kg during peak 
heating will result in a few severe storms with large hail and 
damaging winds. 


The upper low will remain nearly stationary this evening as a 
second shortwave moves east across Mexico into West Texas. This 
should generate another round of convection during the evening and 
overnight hours on top of areas which are already saturated...and 
will likely have received convection by this afternoon. Some 
high-res guidance suggests thunderstorms organizing into a line 
and progressing slowly east across the region overnight tonight. 
The slow eastward progression implies that thunderstorm cells will 
have the opportunity to train over saturated areas for prolonged 
periods of time...further supporting heavy rain potential and 
continued opportunities for flash flooding. Precipitation will 
eventually shift east of the region during the day Sunday as the 
upper low shifts northeast into the northern plains and the 
shortwave heads for the Ohio Valley. 


Whatever break we receive will be short lived...because another 
round of convection will transpire on Monday as another shortwave 
/which appears to currently reside in the Pacific northwest/ swings 
east across the Southern Plains. Higher levels of shear and 
instability will lead to a better chance of severe thunderstorms 
with this system. The system will move relatively fast...but 
localized heavy rain will still create additional flooding 
concerns for Memorial Day. Storms will likely organize upscale 
into a squall line and push east of the region Monday night or 
early Tuesday. 


Shortwave ridging should bring quieter weather to the area Tuesday 
and Wednesday...though we will continue to keep low probability of precipitation in place 
for widely scattered diurnal convection. This type of activity is 
usually disorganized and driven by daytime heating...but tends to 
be fairly easy to come by during a wet weather pattern. Showers 
and thunderstorms will become more numerous Thursday and Friday as 
yet another upper trough approaches the plains. 30
