NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
632 am CDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015 


Aviation... 
/12z tafs/ 


Concerns...MVFR and IFR ceilings today. 


Low-end VFR and high-end MVFR ceilings cover the metroplex this 
morning while IFR ceilings are located around kact. Ceilings will vary 
between 1-3.5 kft in the metroplex this morning while 0.5-2 kft 
ceilings are expected at kact. Areas of light rain will occur through 
the early aftern0on hours with more isolated to scattered areas of 
light rain possible for the remainder of the afternoon hours. MVFR 
visbys may occur during periods of more moderate rain. Conditions 
are expected to improve this afternoon as an upper level low moves 
east of the taf sites. VFR will prevail this evening through the 
end of the taf period. The winds will prevail from the north 
today...shifting to the west-northwest overnight and then back 
north Wednesday morning.

Previous discussion... /issued 339 am CDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015/ 
an unusually strong upper level low will track right across north 
central Texas during the day and bring another chance of rain and 
unseasonably cool temperatures. In fact...forecast high 
temperatures at both dfw and Waco are in record territory for 
lowest maximum temperature today. The record at dfw is 61 in 1932 and 
the record at Waco will be easily broken since it is 69 in 1916. 
Weak lift from the upper level low and continued saturation aloft 
will result in a west to east band of rain/showers that tracks 
across the central County Warning Area this morning. Highest probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast of up to 
0.20 inch will be centered along a line from Comanche to Hillsboro 
to Athens. Instability looks too low for any thunderstorms today. 
Additional light rain showers may develop on the backside of the 
upper low this afternoon...but isentropic downglide and drying 
aloft means coverage should be 20 percent or less except for the 
far eastern zones. Cloudy skies and north winds will prevail 
through late afternoon...and ensure what will be our coolest 
daytime period for about another 5 months. Yes...I am calling it. 


Clearing skies will occur this evening...but continued light 
northerly winds will keep radiational cooling shy of optional 
levels. Still...temperatures will drop into the middle to upper 40s for 
most of the County Warning Area tonight. In case you are wondering...record lows 
in late April are still generally in the low 40s for dfw/Waco. 


Ridging aloft will prevail for several days from Wednesday into 
next weekend and will ensure pretty spectacular weather for this 
time of year. Skies will be generally clear with low dewpoints and 
light winds. High temperatures will be in the 70s Wednesday 
through Friday with lows in the 40s and 50s. South winds do return 
by Friday and gradually increasing moisture and temperatures will 
occur over the weekend. High temperatures will stay near normal...around 
80 degrees...but low temperatures will creep up above normal in the low 
to middle 60s as dewpoints climb. Morning clouds and high humidity 
will be back by Monday. 


The next upper level system will arrive into the southwest U.S. 
Early next week which should bring a chance of rain and perhaps a 
weak cold front here by Monday night or Tuesday. The better 
chances of rain will likely hold off until the middle of next week 
when this system ejects out into the plains.
