NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
647 am CDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


Aviation... 
/12z taf/ 


Concerns...some MVFR ceilings this morning. A cold front will bring a 
wind shift and thunderstorms to the taf airports this afternoon. 


Some stratus across the region this morning is causing brief 
bkn014-018 ceilings but the stratus should stay mostly few-scattered this 
morning at the taf sites. However...middle level accus is causing 
scattered-broken skies around 120 kft. South winds will turn to the 
southwest and increase to 14-20 kts by midday. A front will move 
into the region this afternoon with thunderstorms developing along 
the front. The best timing for thunderstorms in the metroplex is 
between 21/22z - 23/00z from west to East. Waco is likely to 
experience thunderstorms from 22-00z. The storms could be severe 
producing hail and/or damaging winds. 


VFR conditions and clearing skies will occur behind the front. 
The winds overnight will be from the northwest between 5-15 kts. 
The winds will become more northerly on Friday and increase around 
midday as another surface high moves into the region.

Previous discussion... /issued 331 am CDT Thursday Oct 2 2014/ 
water vapor loop shows a pronounced shortwave trough over New Mexico 
rapidly moving eastward toward the region. Forcing for ascent ahead 
of this feature is already reaching the region...as aircraft data 
indicates lifting and dynamic cooling of the middle level temperature 
profile. Where enough moisture exists aloft...across the northwest zones 
and Oklahoma...this lift is allowing elevated parcels to reach their 
level of free convection and convect. This scattered elevated convection will remain 
primarily north of the region this morning...but the northwest and 
northern zones will have a chance of morning showers or storms. 


The cold front is now entering the Texas Panhandle and is forecast 
to reach the northwest zones by midday. Model guidance is an hour or two 
faster with the front...but overall there is little change to the 
forecast thinking of the last few days. Ahead of the front...south 
to southwest winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour will ensure a warm morning and 
once the low stratus scatters out by midday...sunshine will boost 
temperatures into the low to middle 90s over the region. These hot temperatures and 
dewpoints near 70 occurring in conjunction with dynamic cooling 
aloft will result in a moderately unstable airmass developing this 
afternoon with cape reaching 2000-2500 j/kg. While a fairly strong 
inversion near 850mb will cap off convective potential early in the 
day...the combination of dynamic lift ahead of the shortwave 
trough...convergence along the front...and afternoon heating will 
all work to erode convective inhibition over the area. 


Surface based convection is expected to form along the front over 
the northwest zones around 1 PM as the cap begins to break. Convection will 
continue to develop southward along the front through the middle-late 
afternoon hours as it marches southeast into the central zones. We 
expect frontal passage around 3 PM near Gainesville...5 PM near dfw...and 7pm 
near Waco. When the front crosses the I-35 corridor a squall line 
will begin to take shape...which means there may still be a few gaps 
in the line at this time. A fully developed and mature squall line 
will exist as the front moves east of the I-35 corridor early this 
evening...and it appears the threat for damaging winds is highest in 
this region. The cap will be a little stronger over the western and 
southwestern zones...and activity will likely be more isolated 
there. Where convection is more isolated...supercellular storm Mode 
is favored...which means there is an enhanced large hail threat in 
addition to a wind threat. While low level wind profiles do not 
appear favorable for low level rotation...surface based supercells 
can still produce isolated tornadoes given the right mesoscale 
conditions...but this cannot be forecast reliably at this time range. 


The front and line of storms will rapidly clear the region from 
northwest to southeast this evening. Drier and slightly cooler air 
will move into the region overnight...but northerly winds will not 
really increase until Friday when a stronger high pressure surge 
arrives. Highs Friday will be cooler and generally top out near 80 
in the north and the middle 80s south. The surface high will settle in 
right over the County Warning Area by sunrise Saturday and winds will go calm. With 
dewpoints by this time in the 30s and 40s...lows Saturday morning 
should reach the 40s for a large portion of the County Warning Area...with low 50s 
for the dfw area and the southeast County Warning Area. Saturday will be sunny and 
pleasant with highs topping out near 80...but winds will switch to 
the south by Saturday evening. 


Increasing moisture and a moderation of temperatures back above normal will 
occur Sunday into early next week. The 00z European model (ecmwf) has an outlier 
solution of a strong shortwave rotating through in northwest flow 
aloft on Monday which brings another weak front and a chance of rain 
to the area. The GFS/Canadian/UKMET are much weaker with this energy 
and therefore show dry weather with high temperatures warming into the 90s 
with lows in the 60s and 70s. Will keep forecast the dry but as a 
nod to the European model (ecmwf) potential will nudge high temperatures downward into the 
middle to upper 80s for next week instead of the climatologically bold 
forecast of lower 90s.
