NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Shreveport la 
120 PM CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015 


Aviation... 
areas of light rain and a few isolated thunderstorms will continue to move 
across the region today. Have chosen to leave mention out of the 
tafs at this time due to the scattered nature. Despite the rain...VFR 
conditions are expected to prevail until after 06z. Increasing 
boundary layer moisture will lead to some stratus development 
overnight...which will likely linger through the end of the taf 
period. Otherwise...southeasterly winds 5-10 kts will decrease in speed and 
even become variable at some sites during the overnight hours. S to 
southwesterly winds at 5-10 kts are expected after sunrise Wednesday. /12/

Previous discussion... /issued 524 am CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015/ 


Discussion... 
surface high pressure has settled into the region this morning...with very 
comfortable temperatures observed with readings in the middle to upper 40s/near 
50 as of 09z. These cool temperatures will be short lived however as the surface 
ridge departs the area to the east today...resulting in a south-southeast low level 
flow in its wake. Infrared satellite imagery is depicting an extensive layer 
of ac over lower East Texas/west-central la...with additional elevated moisture 
associated with a weak shortwave now nosing into the Texas/OK panhandles 
expected to traverse east along the Red River valley today. Mosaic radar 
imagery indicates some scattered elevated returns over central/southern OK this 
morning...with mainly trace amounts recorded per surface observation. As this 
shortwave shifts farther east into southeast OK/SW Arkansas...it will encounter a much 
drier low level air mass...but still can/T rule out very light quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts over NE Texas/southeast OK/SW Arkansas. In addition...steep lapse rates aloft 
may yield isolated thunder...thus have retained mention of slight 
chance probability of precipitation for these areas through the afternoon. This shortwave 
should shift east of the region by this evening...but should see a quick 
return of 850mb moisture NE into East Texas/southeast OK this evening...before 
spreading east-northeast into extreme northern la/SW Arkansas overnight. Min temperatures tonight 
will be noticeably milder than the last couple of mornings...owing to 
the increasing warm advection and cloud cover. Moisture advection will 
actually deepen with time during Wednesday...as a warm front begins to 
lift north across the region. 


Have discounted the 00z NAM as it is an outlier /and much more 
aggressive than earlier runs/ in generating convection along/north of the 
warm front Wednesday...with the convection actually reinforcing the 
front back S during the day. Instead...have gone with a blend of the 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) with scattered convection developing by afternoon over central/southern 
OK near a convergence bullseye ahead of a deepening surface low along the 
dryline over West Texas...and a weak cold front that will drift S and 
temporarily stall from north central OK into northern Arkansas. By afternoon...the warm 
front should extend southeast along the Red River on North Texas into NE Texas to near 
the Arkansas/la line. The placement of the front will be important as it 
will focus additional convergence during the afternoon and 
evening...with large scale forcing increasing later in the day ahead 
of a shortwave that will traverse OK/the Red River valley into Arkansas 
overnight. Moderate instability will develop Wednesday afternoon 
across the warm sector...with MLCAPES of 1500-2000 j/kg and steep 
elevated lapse rates in the 700-500mb layer. Backed surface winds ahead of 
the surface low/dryline across north central Texas will contribute to updraft 
rotation...with scattered convection possibly evolving into a mesoscale convective system as it 
rides the warm front east-southeast into the region Wednesday afternoon and 
especially Wednesday night. Have increased probability of precipitation to high chance for southeast 
OK/western sections of East Texas Wednesday afternoon...tapering probability of precipitation to low 
chance farther southeast over north central la where convergence is a bit weaker. 
Should a mesoscale convective system develop over the Red River valley Wednesday 
afternoon...this complex could accelerate southeast along the front posing a 
damaging wind threat across the region as it taps the inflow from the 
unstable air mass to the south-southeast before weakening late. Did increase probability of precipitation 
to likely Wednesday night for much of the region...before this complex 
of storms departs the region late. 


The aforementioned weak cold front remains prognosticated to backdoor SW into 
SW Arkansas/southeast OK Thursday morning before pulling up stationary over northern 
la/East Texas by afternoon. This bndy and possible mesoscale boundaries from the 
Wednesday night convection should again focus scattered convection Thursday 
afternoon once instability is maximized. Scattered severe convection can/T be 
ruled out Thursday afternoon/evening near/S of the front in the 
greater instability...and strong deep layer shear in place. The 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) are in agreement in shifting the stationary boundary back north as 
a warm front Friday...with the warm sector expanding north into eastern OK/Arkansas 
by afternoon. Meanwhile...the closed low in vc of the Southern California coast 
should begin to eject NE into The Four Corners region and open up as 
it enters the southern rockies and OK/Texas Panhandle region Friday afternoon. 
An 80kt southwesterly middle level jet ahead of the ejecting shortwave should 
aid in mixing the dryline quickly east into eastern OK to near the I-35 
corridor of central Texas...with increasing large scale forcing 
resulting in at least scattered convective development across the region 
/and much of the broad warm sector/ during the day. Have 
maintained high chance probability of precipitation areawide Friday...with the convection 
expected to diminish from west to east Friday night as middle level dry air 
quickly advects east into the region beneath the ejecting upper 
trough. Could again see more scattered severe convection Friday/Friday 
evening given the impressive shear/thermodynamics...with the 
remnants of the dryline/surface trough expected to quickly mix east 
across the region Saturday behind westerly surface winds. 


Should see maximum temperatures warm well into the 80s this weekend over much of 
the region...with the medium range forecasts suggesting another 
progressive southern stream upper trough traversing the Southern Plains late 
Sunday and early next week. Have maintained slight chance probability of precipitation for now 
as the forecasts are different in regards to the amplitude of the 
trough.
