NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
608 PM CST sun Mar 1 2015 


Aviation... 
/00z tafs/ 


Challenges continue with ceilings/visibility categories and more -ra/-dz 
arriving overnight...as another middle level impulse arrives later 
this evening and associated warm air advection above the frontal inversion 
occurs. Will prevail IFR ceilings...with MVFR visibilities and -ra or -dz 
arriving between middle evening and midnight...then continuing Monday 
morning with ceilings falling into LIFR...though confidence is not 
high at this time due to north winds remaining up around 10 kts or 
slightly higher. These wind speeds should keep the near surface 
layer a little more mixed than with previous nights. 


MOS guidances continue to struggle on overall conditions and have 
basically trashed them and followed the nam12 bufr and RUC bak40 
soundings closely for this forecast...as they appear more reasonable 
on trends. Expect conditions to slowly improve and rise back into 
IFR for a while Monday afternoon as surface temperatures warm. 


Surface ridge should shift east/southeast of the area finally by Monday 
evening and we could see better chances for fog and LIFR 
conditions Monday night.

Previous discussion... /issued 355 PM CST sun Mar 1 2015/ 
the weather pattern across North Texas is not expected to change 
much tonight through Monday with shallow...cold air remaining at 
the surface and continued warm air advection above the Arctic air. 
This pattern will result in continued areas of low clouds and 
drizzle/light rain tonight through Monday. The only good news is 
that there is not much...if any...additional cold air advection 
near the surface across the region and temperatures should remain 
above freezing overnight. Therefore...freezing drizzle is not 
expected tonight. The only exception may be across the extreme 
northwest zones where temperatures may cool back down to 32 degrees for a 
few hours after dark. Even if temperatures do cool to 32 degrees no 
travel impacts are expected. 


Monday will see a slow warm up as much of the snow cover finally 
melts and some weak surface warm air advection begins as winds 
turn to the east. The wind shift will be in response to 
developing surface low pressure across the central rockies. 
Surface warm air advection will begin in earnest Monday night as 
the deepening surface low moves onto the Central High plains and 
the Gulf fully opens up. This will result in much warmer overnight 
lows Monday night than we have seen the past several days and even 
the development of some fog along with drizzle/light rain. 


Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week even though skies will 
be mostly cloudy. Expect afternoon highs Tuesday in the upper 60s 
to lower 70s. Some middle 70s are even possible in the west due to 
southwesterly winds behind a passing prefrontal trough. Showers 
and isolated thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday as a deep 
upper trough moves inland from the Pacific. Previous model runs 
were indicating some decent instability and wind shear Tuesday 
afternoon with the potential for strong thunderstorms. All models 
have backed off on the amount of middle level instability that will 
be available so will keep thunderstorm coverage isolated with the 
exception of the northeast zones where cape should be a bit 
higher. 


A cold front is prognosticated to move across North Texas Tuesday night 
and bring additional focus for showers and isolated thunderstorms. 
The front will also bring sharply falling temperatures along with 
increasing north winds. Things should get a bit more interesting 
on Wednesday as the cold air deepens across the region and large 
scale lift increases. We expect a mix of rain and sleet in the 
northwest zones after sunrise Wednesday with a mix of 
precipitation moving into the central zones by midday. 
Temperatures will most likely fall to near freezing across the 
northwest half of the region by late afternoon Wednesday and 
across all zones shortly after sunset. Precipitation should 
transition to a mix of sleet and snow from north to south 
Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night as the warm nose 
disappears and the dendritic growth zones begins to saturate. 


It is much too early to assess the amount of winter precipitation 
for this middle week system or the potential impacts. What we do 
know is that the GFS and European model (ecmwf) solutions are coming a bit more in 
alignment with regards to the timing of the best lift...the 
strength of the front(ie. How cold it will get) and the amount of 
moisture that will be available. It is much to early too put a 
sleet/snow amount with any degree of confidence since 
accumulations will largely hinge on just how cold it will get when 
the heaviest precipitation occurs. One thing that is a bit concerning is 
that the models do tend to underestimate shallow Arctic air and 
for that reason I have undercut MOS guidance a few degrees for 
lows Wednesday night. We will not outlook this potential storm 
yet but await more run to run model consensus. We will continue to 
advertise the potential for another winter event in both the 
hazardous weather outlook and graphically. 


The low levels of the atmosphere should begin to dry out on 
Thursday as the cold air deepens but we will linger some light 
winter precipitation or a mix in the southern zones Thursday morning. 
Models continue to indicate that the low level temperatures will 
modify some on Thursday with the return of the sun. Our forecast 
may be too warm Thursday if the feed of upper level moisture 
associated with a cut off low near Baja California keeps skies cloudy. 
Also...will have to consider that any type of snow cover would 
also affect high temperatures Thursday. Even if temperatures do warm 
above freezing Thursday...they will mostly likely fall back into 
the 20s Thursday night which would refreeze any residual water. 


The extended models keep the Gulf shut off Thursday night through 
Sunday which should keep temperatures below normal with minimal 
rain chances.
