NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
657 PM CDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Aviation... 
/00z taf/ 


A strong trough continues moving east out of the southern rockies 
and over the highs plains tonight...then across the central/Southern 
Plains through Monday night. Several shortwaves will rotate east 
and northeast through the base of the main trough...with one 
currently moving up across the Red River and trigger the current 
showers and isolated storms. Activity is all elevated...so winds 
not an issue. Ceilings and timing convective activity are challenging 
needless to say. 


Regarding convective trends at the airports...we should continue 
to see showers and a few storms in the vicinity through middle-late 
evening...then wane by midnight as the embedded shortwave 
continues moving northeast away from the region. After lift and 
mixing cease from this shortwave...we expect MVFR ceilings to arrive 
around or shortly after midnight. These should likely start above 
020...but then go below during the pre dawn hours as the boundary 
layer slowly cools. Ceilings will slowly rise through Monday morning 
and become VFR and possibly scattering after midday. 


An mesoscale convective system is prognosticated to be on going with the main shortwave over OK 
through the morning hours and will likely shoot an outflow 
boundary southward across the Red River during the early-middle 
afternoon. There are some subtle timing concerns and uncertainties 
on forcing at the surface with only scattered coverage at what 
could be strong to severe storms...thus have left the thunderstorms in the vicinity mention 
at dfw metropolitan airports at 20z Monday with outflow and forcing 
arriving at Waco late afternoon or early evening. Again...coverage 
too low to go more than thunderstorms in the vicinity. 


Will indicate a wind shift into dfw Airport in the 24-30 hour period 
around 02z Monday evening...but expect tweaks and adjustments as 
confidence becomes higher with time.

Previous discussion... /issued 333 PM CDT sun Apr 20 2014/ 
a nearly solid area of elevated showers and thunderstorms has 
developed this afternoon across parts of northwest Texas. At 3 
PM...the activity was bounded roughly by Wichita Falls... 
Bridgeport and Abilene. Additional showers and storms were 
developing near Coleman and Brownwood. All activity was moving 
northeast at around 40 miles per hour. The forecast for tonight will feature 
the highest probability of precipitation across the northern areas...with likely category 
near the Red River...with only a slight chance in the far south. 
Some of these elevated storms could produce small hail along with 
frequent lightning...but pose a minimal severe threat. We will 
continue to watch for surface-based storm development near the 
dryline in West Texas...but chances are that any such strong to 
severe storms will diminish drastically before reaching as far 
east as Graham or Breckenridge late this evening. 


Models are in good agreement that the strong upper forcing for 
ascent...associated with the current convective activity...will 
begin moving east of the area after midnight. There may be a 
minimum in convective activity across the area from 3 am to noon 
on Monday. However...we cant rule out at least isolated 
development in any area during this time frame given proximity of 
upper trough across West Texas and continued ascent from low level 
warm air advection. 


Breaks in the clouds will lead to moderate to strong instability 
developing over much of north and central Texas on Monday 
afternoon. With temperatures around 80 and dew points in the low 
to middle 60s...surface based cape values should reach 2000 j/kg 
locally. Expect scattered to numerous thunderstorms to develop by 
early afternoon as mesoscale lift from cold front/wind-shift 
crosses the Red River. The strong instability and moderate deep 
layer shear of 30 knots will lead to multicell clusters of strong 
to severe storms...with a threat for damaging winds and large hail. 
Weak low level shear...cell mergers...and relatively strong storm 
outflow should limit the tornado threat to the first few hours 
after initiation in the early afternoon. The storms will likely 
spread east and southeast with the cold front...and gradually 
weaken as they concentrate in the east and southeast areas by 
midnight. 


Lingering showers in the extreme south will end early Tuesday. 
Clearing skies and above normal temperatures are forecast Tuesday 
afternoon in the subsident air behind the departing shortwave. Dry 
weather will continue through Wednesday afternoon...with lower and 
middle 80s forecast for highs in all areas. 


Next chances for showers and storms will arrive for the periods 
Wednesday night through Thursday night and Friday night through 
Sunday. Will keep probability of precipitation on the low side for the middle week system 
given only modest forcing at best from a fast moving plains 
shortwave. There is more uncertainty with regard to next weekends 
system...as medium range models depict a much deeper trough 
developing into the southern rockies by late in the weekend. Will 
forecast the highest probability of precipitation for North Texas on Sunday Apr 27...but 
will go no higher than 30 percent at this time given uncertainties 
with timing this far out.
