 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 4:35 PM CDT on April 25, 2015


... NWS damage survey for 04/24/15 tornado and high winds event...

.Overview... One tornado has been confirmed by a storm survey team from
the National Weather Service office. Several other areas of damaging
winds were noted across much of the dfw metroplex. Maximum winds were
in the 80 to 85 mph range... while the confirmed tornado produced EF-0
damage. The bulk of the damage from the storms last evening were from straight
line winds. 80 mph winds were noted in an area between Godley and Joshua.
The majority of the damage was located in a small area approximately
four miles to the northwest of the city of Joshua. In this area... the
survey team was not able to completely rule out the possibility of a brief
tornado... there was no overwhelming evidence in the damage pattern... radar
data... or eyewitnesses. There was also extensive wind damage across the southern portions of
Tarrant County... where several trees were damaged or uprooted. The majority
of this damage was noted in or near Benbrook... as well as the south side of
the city of Fort Worth. Other damage areas were noted in the northeast
part of the city of Fort Worth and Arlington. Maximum wind speeds were in the
80 to 85 mph range.

In summary from the storms last night... several areas of straight line winds
and one confirmed tornado in Ellis County.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
328 PM CDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Discussion... 
a Pacific cold front had moved through all of North Texas at middle 
afternoon. The dry air associated with this air mass will remain 
in place tonight but will steadily modify on Sunday in response 
to a developing low pressure system in the west. Large scale lift 
will be on the increase Sunday as an upper low moves across New 
Mexico. A dryline will also mix eastward on Sunday and should be 
the focus for some isolated thunderstorms in the west late Sunday 
afternoon. Any storms that develop Sunday afternoon should hold 
together as they lift northeast across the region Sunday night. 
Therefore we will keep chance probability of precipitation in place Sunday night with the 
best chances across the western half of the region .There will be 
enough instability and shear to support a few severe storms with 
large hail and damaging winds. The low level shear should be 
more than sufficient to even support an isolated tornado 
threat...especially late Sunday afternoon into early Sunday 
evening. 


Showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous on Monday as a 
cold front backdoors into the region from the northeast and the 
upper low moves into the Panhandle. The best rain/storm coverage 
should become oriented along and behind the cold front. There will 
be a potential for strong to severe storms on Monday but the 
bigger threat may be localized flooding...especially across the 
southeast zones where precipitable water values will exceed 1.5 
inches. 


Rain and thunderstorm chances will continue Monday evening but 
should decrease from southwest to northeast as the upper low moves 
east across Oklahoma and allows a much cooler and drier airmass to 
filter into the region. There is a potential for some wrap around 
showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday. All precipitation should 
end across North Texas Tuesday night as the dry air gets deeper 
and the upper low moves east. 


Upper level high pressure will build over the state Wednesday 
through Saturday and bring dry weather and near seasonal 
temperatures with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

&& 


Aviation... 
/issued 1204 PM CDT Sat Apr 25 2015/ 
VFR through Sunday afternoon with only some scattered high clouds. 


The only aviation weather concern will be for a moderate cross 
wind this afternoon on north/south runways due to a southwest to 
west wind in the 12 to 15 knot range. Wind speeds will decrease 
below 12 knots after sunset and begin to back to the 
south/southwest this evening in response to deepening surface low 
pressure across the central and southern High Plains. A south to 
southwest wind will prevail on Sunday at speeds near or below 12 
knots. 


Thunderstorm chances should begin just beyond the extended period 
of the dfw taf...generally Sunday evening and beyond.
