NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1137 PM CDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Aviation... 
thunderstorms and their various impacts will be the concern for 
the next 30 hours or so. At 04z...dewpoints were in the lower 70s 
and upper 60s from Waco tot he south...while they were int he middle 
50s in the north. Low level clouds and moisture will continue to 
stream northward overnight and will bring a few showers or 
thunderstorms along for the ride. 


Thunderstorms have been occurring at the Waco terminal for the 
past two hours...with the lightning diminishing over the past 
hour. However...a few strikes have been observed close to the dfw 
metroplex...and these will likely affect the eastern half of the 
metroplex terminals over the next few hours. Thunderstorms are 
expected to continue across much of the airspace tonight...and 
will carry either prevailing thunder or thunderstorms in the vicinity for the early 
overnight hours. There will then be a few hours of relative 
calm...with only MVFR or IFR ceilings to deal with...before the 
thunderstorm chances return Friday afternoon.

Previous discussion... /issued 334 PM CDT Thursday Apr 28 2016/ 
it has been a nice day across north and central Texas but changes 
are on the way as a very moist and unstable air mass heads back 
into the region tonight in the wake of a warm front moving up from 
the south. This will set the stage for an active day tomorrow with 
a noteworthy severe weather potential that could end up being 
significant if mesoscale features evolve as discussed below. 


Satellite and surface observations depict the rich moisture with 
dewpoints in the low to middle 70s in south and southeast Texas that 
will enter the southern zones this evening. Warm fronts are not 
surprisingly associated with warm advection...and warm advection 
is often synonymous with lifting or rising air. As this warm and 
moist air enters the County Warning Area...it will be undercutting a colder 
airmass aloft which will yield high amounts of instability that 
will be uncapped. The warm advection itself will be providing the 
lift for scattered storms to Blossom. These storms should be 
slightly elevated above the boundary layer which should limit the 
wind or tornado potential despite well organized and impressive 
shear profiles. However these storms will still be capable of 
large hail...perhaps up to the size of golfballs for the strongest 
cells. The isolated to scattered activity is expected to develop 
in the southern zones around middle evening...with storms moving 
northward and increasing in coverage and intensity by the time 
they reach the I-20 corridor around midnight. Highest probability of precipitation of 
60-70 percent will be located over the northern half of the 
region...with probability of precipitation just 30 percent in the southern zones. 


While model guidance is somewhat split on whether the overnight 
activity will continue to redevelop/persist over the County Warning Area late 
tonight and into Friday morning...am siding with the rap/hrrr/ttu 
WRF forecasts which kick the warm front and storms north of the 
Red River by day break. This is because the southerly winds in 
the low-middle levels should also pull some warmer air in from south 
Texas which should effectively cap the County Warning Area for additional 
convection well south of the warm front by daybreak Friday. This 
cap is not forecast to be very strong by any of the models...and 
as temperatures reach the upper 70s to lower 80s by midday Friday it 
should break. 


While a dry line will be approaching from the west and reaches our 
western County Warning Area border Friday afternoon...it is more likely that 
convection will spontaneously develop well east of the dry line in 
an axis of warm advection and moisture convergence along the I-35 
corridor around or just after midday. This is advertised by 
several of the high-res models...and all of the global models are 
dropping the highest quantitative precipitation forecast and upward motions east of I-35 between 
18z-00z. Thus there is high confidence that storms will not need 
the dry line or peak day time heating to develop. In short this 
event does not look like it is going to be the typical dryline day 
where we wait until late afternoon for storms to fire out west. 


Instead the initiation over the I-35 corridor could lead to 
numerous storms if the cap is too weak and perhaps a messy 
convective evolution that does not let any one storm have all of 
the instability to themselves. This would lower the overall severe 
weather potential. However if convection is not as numerous there 
is a greater potential for significant severe weather occurring 
given surface based cape values increasing to 2500 to 3500 j/kg 
by early afternoon. This instability will also be occurring in the 
presence of well organized shear profiles...more than enough to 
support supercells and enough low level shear to be concerned 
about tornadoes...especially given the unusually high low level 
instability complements of lower 70s dewpoints. Furthermore if 
activity does develop along the I-35 corridor by midday as 
expected...it is likely to train over the same region with just a 
gradual eastward shift. This could lead to excessive multi-inch 
rainfall in localized areas. Since this flooding potential is 
highly dependent on mesoscale features developing in the right 
place and time...we thought it would be best to let later shifts 
make the call whether to include part of the area in a watch. 


Believe that Friday/S thunderstorm activity should slowly shift 
eastward during the afternoon hours...and likely into East Texas 
by midnight. Most models suggest that the effective cold front 
will set up east of the County Warning Area on Saturday which means any additional 
convection Saturday afternoon would develop east of the region. 
Have retained low probability of precipitation over the eastern zones in case the 
front/dry line sets up a little farther west than expected. 
Behind the front/dry line over most of the area it should be 
mostly sunny and dry with high temperatures warming into the middle 
to upper 80s. A stronger push of cooler air will arrive Saturday 
night...so this will assuredly result in a sunny and nice day 
Sunday with temperatures cooling into the middle 70s to lower 80s for highs. 


Rain chances return on Monday as another shortwave trough moves 
across the region. The forcing with this system will be strong but 
will occur on the cold side of the frontal boundary which means no 
severe weather is expected. Will show a chance of rain and 
seasonably cool temperatures Monday with highs in the middle 60s west to middle 
70s east. 


For middle to late next week...upper level ridging will prevail and 
it looks like we will string a few dry and pleasant days together. 
Highs will be near 80 with lows in the 50s.
