NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
318 PM CDT sun may 24 2015 


Discussion... 
the upper level trough axis responsible for the most recent round 
of rainfall is currently pivoting through North Texas. The strong 
forcing ahead of this system has resulted in a second batch of 
rain and a few storms over the central County Warning Area this afternoon. But 
because the airmass across the region is pretty worked over from 
the overnight activity...this convection has been weak and is 
expected to remain so into the evening hours as it tracks 
northeastward. Will carry just a slight chance of rain over the 
west and probability of precipitation of 30-40 over the east this evening. Temperatures 
tonight will be in the middle 60s northwest to low 70s southeast as southerly winds 
re-establish and bring warmer and more moist air northward. 


The moisture return will set the stage for another round of severe 
thunderstorms and heavy rainfall tomorrow. Instability is forecast 
to become quite high...with surface based cape by midday reaching 
2500-3500 j/kg with little convective inhibition. Strong forcing 
will spread into the region in advance of a compact and rapidly 
moving vorticity lobe that swings across the state during the day. 
Thunderstorms should fire from roughly San Angelo to San Antonio 
by late morning and grow upscale into a mesoscale convective system or squall line as 
they move northeastward into the County Warning Area by early afternoon. Given the 
high cape and available shear...severe winds would be possible 
with the mesoscale convective system...and several high resolution models are indicating a 
Bow echo developing and tracking through the south central and 
southeast County Warning Area. However if the storm Mode remains more 
cellular...we would become more concerned about the potential for 
large hail and perhaps an isolated tornado. 


This system will assuredly bring a quick 1-3 inches of rain to 
the region southeast of a Comanche to dfw to Paris line where the 
severe weather threat is also highest. Obviously continuing the 
Flash Flood Watch through tomorrow afternoon for this area is a 
given. The heavier rain amounts may spread farther to the 
northwest...it is just dependent on how far northwest the return 
flow can bring the quality moisture back by tomorrow morning. Due 
to this uncertainty and the very saturated grounds that already 
exist...will keep the Flash Flood Watch going for the remainder 
of the County Warning Area even though it is possible less than a quarter to half 
inch may occur tomorrow across the northwest. All of this 
convective activity should clear out from west to east during the 
late afternoon and early evening hours...making for a quiet and 
tranquil evening. 


More sunshine is expected Tuesday afternoon and temperatures will 
climb into the low to middle 80s. The southerly flow should bring 
back low 70 dewpoints into the area again. The middle-upper levels 
will feature very steep lapse rates as cold air remains aloft in 
the wake of the last two shortwaves. All of this will contribute 
to an extremely unstable airmass over the region...with several 
models forecasting surface based cape over 5000 j/kg. Upper level 
forcing is forecast to be much weaker Tuesday...and a weak cap 
will also be present. While this should limit convective 
development until the middle-late afternoon hours and keep storm 
coverage low...what does develop will have a tremendous amount of 
instability to work with. Most of the model guidance is initiating 
convection along a dry line that is draped across the western 
counties Tuesday afternoon...which raises confidence that 
something will probably develop in our County Warning Area. Deep layer shear is 
rather limited...but due to the extreme instability it would be 
sufficient for supercells with a very large hail...tornado and 
locally heavy rainfall threat. Storm motion would probably be 
southeast or even south...so will keep the higher probability of precipitation of 30 
percent west of I-35. 


For Wednesday and Thursday we should be in between systems with 
really no organized lifting over the region. Although a few 
isolated to scattered showers and storms are possible with 
afternoon heating...will keep probability of precipitation at 20-30 percent. High 
cape...but very limited shear will keep activity more like 
Summer-time pulse convection...so some very localized severe 
threat will exist. 


The next upper level system arrives in from the west Friday and 
Saturday and it will take a couple of days to track through the 
area. Rain chances will increase again during this time frame with 
a potential for more heavy rainfall. A weak cold front may push 
through next Sunday in the wake of the upper system...so will 
keep rain chances continuing through Sunday. Northwesterly flow 
aloft behind the front will hopefully shunt some of this rich 
moisture well offshore...and bring US a break from this rainy 
pattern. However I would caution anyone banking on a dry forecast 
for early June that northwest flow this time of year is prime 
season for mesoscale convective system activity to track in from the High Plains which is 
often not forecast well by the global models.

Aviation... 
/issued 1235 PM CDT sun may 24 2015/ 


Another batch of showers will spread across the metroplex 
terminals this afternoon. Have not seen lightning in this 
activity over the past few hours and decided to exclude and 
monitor for needed updates. Expecting this batch to exit the 
metroplex around 22z with little or none this evening and 
overnight. Another convective complex will develop out west Monday 
morning and move across North Texas Monday afternoon...generally 
between 18 and 22z. This system again will produce heavy rainfall 
and could produce severe thunderstorms as well. 


MVFR ceilings and VFR to MVFR visible should prevail this afternoon but 
could go VFR before 00z. Expecting MVFR ceilings to return to all 
sites tonight by 06z with a lowering into the IFR category around 
08-09z. No improvement is expected through midday or early 
afternoon Monday. Expecting to see MVFR to IFR visible...and maybe 
IFR ceilings as well...during Monday afternoon/S convective system.
