NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
947 am CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Update... 
hot and humid conditions continue across North Texas today. High 
temperatures this afternoon may end up being a degree or two 
warmer than yesterday...though lower dewpoints compared to 24 
hours ago should keep apparent temperature/heat index values 
similar to the past couple of days. 


Isolated convection has already begun to develop over Arkansas 
ahead of a weak cold front and an upper level disturbance. We 
expect that these storms will increase in coverage as the day 
wears on. Northeast flow aloft will transport these storms 
southwest this afternoon...eventually reaching our northeast 
counties before sunset. Some of these storms will be strong...with 
isolated severe storms with damaging winds possible. Storms should 
weaken after sunset as they move farther southwest...but may still 
affect the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex later this evening before 
dissipating.

Aviation... 
/issued 458 am CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014/ 
VFR will prevail through the period with generally clear skies 
and light northeast winds. The exception to this may occur this 
evening as convection moves southwest toward the metroplex taf 
sites. Hi-res guidance and RUC/hrrr are certainly more bullish on 
convection holding together long enough to reach taf sites. While 
this probability is low...felt it was best to show the possibility 
of thunder in the vicinity from 2-4z. Future tafs may need to 
amend timing or remove it altogether based on upstream trends.

Previous discussion... /issued 400 am CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014/ 
early morning water vapor imagery shows a large anticyclone 
centered over New Mexico with a TUTT low moving westward across 
southern Louisiana. Several weak shortwaves are noted moving 
around the periphery of the western ridge into the central U.S. 
This morning. Building heat has been the main story for North 
Texas over the last couple of days and this will continue into the 
weekend with only small chances for rainfall. 


Today the TUTT low over Louisiana will continue to move westward 
spreading weak ascent across southeast Texas. This should result 
in a scattering of afternoon showers and thunderstorms southeast 
of the area. Farther north...a weak disturbance will slide 
southward through the Ozarks igniting showers and thunderstorms 
along a cold front across parts of Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma 
this afternoon. These thunderstorms should move from northeast to 
southwest given the flow around the periphery of the upper ridge. 
The hrrr...RUC...and 4km NAM all indicate the potential for 
convection into the evening hours across parts of North Texas so 
will have some 20/30 probability of precipitation across the northern half of the County Warning Area. A 
few strong storms are possible with gusty winds being the main threat. 


By Thursday...the center of the 700mb ridge edges closer to the 
area and temperatures should continue to warm by a degree or so. 
The cold front that will be over the Ozarks today will continue 
southward on Thursday and should be located across the lower 
Mississippi River valley by late afternoon. While the front itself 
wont really affect North Texas temperatures...scattered 
thunderstorms may develop as far west as Canton to Palestine so 
will have some 20 probability of precipitation across the far eastern counties. 


Friday looks like it will be the warmest of the next several days 
with the center of the 700mb ridge nearly overhead. Highs will 
range from 100 to 105 across North Texas with heat index values 
right near 105. Some relief may be on the way however as a very 
strong shortwave will be located across south central Saskatchewan 
on Friday. Model guidance is in excellent agreement with the 
handling of this feature...digging it into the eastern U.S. 
Through the weekend. This will result in a rather large and deep 
trough over the eastern U.S. Into early next week with the upper 
ridge getting shunted westward. While not as cool as last 
week...it does appear that temperatures will cool back to below 
normal levels with at least some additional chances for rainfall 
by the middle of next week. 


Concerning potential heat advisory...heat index values will be 
near or slightly above 105 degrees both Thursday afternoon and 
again on Friday. A heat advisory will likely be required during 
this time.
