NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1112 PM CST Sat Feb 13 2016 


Aviation... 
/06z tafs/ 


Minor challenges on ceilings arrival and trends...as I have moved back 
arrival 1-2 hours at all locations. However...40-50kt low level jet should 
have all airports in low MVFR by 08z. With the strong winds...I 
have continue to leave IFR out of Waco just before sunrise though 
this will need to watch closely as some borderline IFR conditions 
are showing up at a few locations west of kcll. Otherwise...only 
changes were with strong warm air advection ahead of the approaching cold front 
Sunday afternoon was to bring ceilings into VFR by midday and see off 
and on VFR ceilings through Sunday evening. South winds 15-20kts will 
continue...but wane with the approach of the cold front later 
Sunday. 


05/ 


&& 


Update... 
southerly winds have remained up in the 10 to 15 miles per hour range and do 
not see any reason for these to wane anytime soon. In 
addition...cloud cover has remained fairly thick...which when 
compared to the wind speeds should lead to a mild evening. We 
have bumped low temperatures up a degree or two and increased both cloud 
cover and wind speeds slightly for this update.

Previous discussion... /issued 230 PM CST Sat Feb 13 2016/ 
an impressive return of low level moisture is currently underway 
across central Texas with dewpoints in the middle and upper 50s at 
many locations as of 2 PM. The moisture surge will continue 
overnight with the development of a 40+ knot low level jet. 
Therefore...expect a mostly cloudy...breezy and mild night with 
overnight lows mainly in the upper 40s and 50s. 


Some warm air advection showers will be possible on Sunday ahead 
of an approaching shortwave. Measurable rainfall is unlikely 
during the day Sunday so will keep only slight chance probability of precipitation. 


Rain chances will increase across the eastern half of north and 
central Texas Sunday night with the arrival of the shortwave and 
a cold front. The best large scale lift will reside across the 
northeast zones so will keep the highest probability of precipitation generally east of 
Interstate 35 and north of Interstate 20. There may be enough 
elevated instability to support a few thunderstorms. Overall...quantitative precipitation forecast 
with this system will be low with amounts generally less than one 
half inch. 


Drier and subsident air will move in quickly from the northwest 
Monday and bring an end to all precipitation. The air behind the 
cold front will not be exceptionally cold and afternoon highs 
Monday will still manage to warm into the 60s and lower 70s under 
a mostly sunny sky. 


Upper level high pressure will move from the West Coast to the 
Central Plains Tuesday through Thursday and result in mostly clear 
skies and mild temperatures with highs generally in the 70s and 
lows in the 40s and 50s. 


The upper trough axis will move east of the region by the weekend 
while a shortwave translates from the central rockies to the 
Central Plains. This pattern will result in surface Lee troughing 
and a reinforcement of Gulf moisture to north and central Texas. 
Therefore...Friday and next Saturday should be partly to mostly 
cloudy and mild with highs in the 70s and lows mainly in the 50s.
