    Skies were generally partly to mostly clear across much of north central Texas this evening with south to southeast winds of around 10 to 15 mph. A cluster of showers and thunderstorms was noted this evening across western North Texas just to the west of Wichita Falls. This activity is expected to slowly move to the east and southeast and may impact locations across Jack...wise...and Montague counties around or just after midnight. Thunderstorms may result in gusty winds...large hail...heavy rain...and frequent cloud to ground lightning. Otherwise...expect generally quiet conditions...with temperatures in the 70s. Skies should remain partly to mostly clear across most areas.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
951 PM CDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Update... 
a quick update to trim probability of precipitation to only areas north of Highway 380 
between Jacksboro and Sulphur Springs...as the elevated mixed 
layer /a scientific name for the cap/ appears stronger with much 
drier lower levels at forward compared to oun/S sounding at 00z. 
Storms that were out by Abilene are a true indicator to this very 
item...though instability above the elevated mixed layer remains 
high with lapse rates between 7-8 degree c/km expected through the 
overnight across the Red River valley. The boundary layer will 
continue to cool and stabilize with any storms near the Red River 
counties likely being elevated in nature by the time they reach 
our counties. I held probability of precipitation in the chance category for the tail-end 
of a possible mesoscale convective system the hrrr and sref have tracking eastward across 
south-central OK overnight and through sunrise Wednesday. 


Models have been struggling with the environmental parameters all 
afternoon and evening long with convective evolution and extent... 
but with nightfall upon US they seem to be getting a little better 
handle on it...outside of the 18z ttu WRF which already had 
storms from Bowie to Sherman by now. I imagine the 00z version 
should be better. 


Otherwise...I did add a slight chance for thunderstorms into the 
overnight period for those parts of central Texas along/west of 
I-35 all the way up through our far western counties...as a 
shortwave disturbance over Mexico moves northeast toward those 
areas. Thunderstorm chances should then spread northeast across 
the majority of North Texas on Wednesday...with a few strong 
storms containing small hail possible along the northern periphery 
of the better chances where steeper middle level lapse rates will 
reside...including the dfw metropolitan area into the afternoon hours.

Aviation... 
/issued 706 PM CDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015/ 
/00z tafs/ 


Concerns...thunderstorm potential...nocturnal stratus. 


Thunderstorms currently in the Big Country will move east into an 
increasingly unfavorable environment this evening...as a cooling 
boundary layer further intensifies a strong cap. Ongoing activity 
in northwest Texas and southwestern Oklahoma is more likely to 
persist throughout the evening hours...aided by a middle-level 
disturbance. These storms will gradually transition to elevated 
multicell clusters...with a steadily diminishing severe threat. 
Regardless...this activity should remain north of metroplex taf 
sites. 


Guidance suggests a rather Ordinary low level jet tonight...but if storms 
are able to maintain their intensity along the Red River...a 
stronger moist fetch may ensue. Either way...there should be less 
of a westerly component...enhancing the chances that an MVFR deck 
is able to blanket the I-35 corridor. Dallas/Arlington/Waco will 
be the last to scatter Wednesday...in fact...these sites may 
simply transition from morning stratus to a broken afternoon 
stratocu deck. 


An impulse with a more southerly track will result in scattered 
showers/storms Wednesday afternoon. Will fine tune timing and 
discuss potential impacts with subsequent taf issuances.

Previous discussion... /issued 334 PM CDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015/ 
a split flow regime appears to be in place across the Continental U.S. With 
multiple progressive weather features potentially affecting North 
Texas over the next few days. Northwest flow aloft is currently 
taking place in the northern stream from The Rockies into the 
central and Southern Plains. Satellite imagery indicates one 
shortwave traveling southeast across Arkansas/eastern OK in this 
flow with a second disturbance moving into the OK Panhandle. At 
the surface...an instability axis resides along and just north of 
the Red River where in the vicinity of an old frontal boundary. 


Thunderstorms are expected to develop in the next couple of hours 
across southeast OK where strong surface heating and lift generated by 
the first shortwave should be enough to overcome a cap currently 
in place. These storms would likely move east-southeast...with a 
few cells affecting the northeast counties around sunset. Given 
the impressive instability in place...a few of these storms may be 
severe with large hail being the main threat. 


Additional convective development will be possible over southwest 
OK in the 5 to 8 PM time frame as the second shortwave approaches 
from the northwest. These storms would be slow moving and likely 
propagate east-southeast. For the rest of the Red River 
counties...timing would be later in the evening and into the 
overnight hours with this activity. Some of the most recent hi- 
res model data is suggestive of upscale growth into multicell 
clusters as storms propagate into northwest counties of North 
Texas...which should limit the overall severe threat for our 
region. An overall weakening trend would take place overnight as 
storms approach the I-20 corridor. For tonight...we will indicate 
highest probability of precipitation along the Red River...with slight chance along I-20 
and little if anything expected across the southern half of the 
region. 


Additional showers and thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday as 
a shortwave trough /currently located over northern Mexico/ 
traverses the state within the southern stream westerly flow. 
There does not appear to be any particular focusing mechanism and 
convection will likely remain widely scattered in nature. 
Increasing moisture will limit the middle level lapse rates and 
marginalize the potential for severe weather....though a few 
strong storms will be possible. 


Upper level flow becomes conjoined again during the second half of 
the week...with a fast moving trough moving east across the 
central Continental U.S. Thursday and Friday. The attendant cold front will 
push south towards the Red River Thursday while a dryline surges 
east towards the I-35 corridor. Shear and instability will be 
impressive...but veering winds and a strong cap will likely 
inhibit convective initiation. The exception may be near the Red 
River along the dryline a few hours prior to sunset when the cap 
becomes weakest. We will indicate 20 probability of precipitation in this area Thursday 
afternoon and then across the northeast counties Thursday night. 


The cold front will dive south through North Texas on Friday with 
only low-end chances of showers and storms expected early in the 
day along the front. Drier conditions and more seasonal 
temperatures are expected Friday and Saturday. The cool air will 
remain in place on Sunday. Rain chances are expected during the 
day and overnight Sunday night as southwesterly flow aloft 
becomes established and overrunning ensues. Embedded thunder will 
be a possibility but should remain fairly isolated in nature. 
Warmer air will return Monday as the front lifts back to the 
north. Storm chances will return area-wide next Tuesday and 
Wednesday associated with another progressive upper trough and 
another cold front.
