NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1200 am CDT Thursday Apr 2 2015 


Aviation... 
/06z tafs/ 


Concerns...nocturnal stratus...thunderstorm potential Thursday. 


Subsidence on the back side of a departing shortwave will prevent 
any additional showers or thunderstorms overnight. Fws vwp showing 
50-60kts at 2-4kft above ground level. Vwp data from grk is closer to 40kts at 
this hour. Although MVFR stratus is still south of Temple/Killeen 
at this time...the speed of the wind within the low level jet should assure 
a rapid northward surge by advection alone. Extrapolation puts the 
arrival of stratus into Waco around 06z or soon thereafter...and 
into the metroplex around 09z (4 am cdt). The stratus will 
steadily lift Thursday morning...but with a strong inversion in 
place...it may take much of the day to scatter out. 


Although a dryline will approach the I-35 corridor Thursday 
afternoon...the cap will likely prevent thunderstorm development 
or otherwise limit coverage. 


Stratus will return late Thursday night into Friday morning in 
advance of a cold front. The front will arrive around middle-morning 
Friday...which is beyond the scope of the 06z dfw taf.

&& 


Update... 
a quick adjustment to the short term forecast regarding storm 
chances for tonight...as the southern stream middle level shortwave 
continues to move east across our area and move into the lower 
Mississippi Valley overnight. 1000-1500 j/kg SBCAPE continues to 
maintain over much of the area...while cape aloft within the hail 
growth zone /-10 to -30 degree c layer/ remains 400-500 j/kg. Will 
carry 20-40 percent chances for thunderstorms generally southeast 
of an Eastland-Mineral Wells-Gainesville line for this evening... 
with highest coverage across the east/southeast counties. Slight 
chances will be held across the southeast third of the County Warning Area for the 
overnight with any lingering lift from the middle level disturbance. 


With effective shear 30-40 kts and the aforementioned 
instability...some storm organization and upscale growth remains 
for now with isolated strong-severe storms possible through sunset 
or into middle evening. As we approach midnight and beyond...large- 
scale subsidence should start to spread from west to east across 
the area along with boundary layer cooling with the loss of 
daytime heating. Any risk for strong-severe storms should wane 
with the lack of a surface focus and larger scale lift moving 
away from the area. 


Another update will be possible before the 10 PM news if trends 
dictate that adjustments are needed in the forecast.

Previous discussion... /issued 327 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015/ 
a shortwave trough continues to progress east across Texas and the 
Southern Plains this afternoon. Extensive cloudcover associated 
with this feature has limited additional thunderstorm development 
across the area for much of the late morning and afternoon. 
That said...locations southwest of the earlier activity /and 
outside of the thicker cloud cover/ are now experiencing 
convective initiation...and additional thunderstorms are expected 
to develop late afternoon and early evening as the atmosphere 
continues to destabilize. Though the best instability has remained 
mainly south of I-20...additional development will remain 
possible area-wide as cooler air aloft associated with the 
shortwave aids in additional destabilization. We will keep slight 
chance probability of precipitation across the northern half of the region this evening 
with chance probability of precipitation across the south. All activity should move east 
of the area around or shortly after midnight as the system 
accelerates off to the northeast. 


An upper trough dropping southeast across the West Coast will move 
east across the central part of the Continental U.S. Late Thursday into 
Friday. This will force a cold front south through North Texas 
Friday. Ahead of the system...a dryline will surge east to near the 
I-35 corridor Thursday afternoon. Good instability is being 
advertised in the vicinity of the dryline...but it looks like a 
strong cap will preclude convective initiation for the majority of 
the region. We will keep some 20 probability of precipitation along I-35 north of I-20 
Thursday afternoon where a low probability for storm development 
will exist. Low to middle 90s temperatures are likely Thursday 
afternoon across the western third of the area where veered winds 
and dry air will be in place. 


The fast moving front will provide focus for scattered showers 
and thunderstorms Friday across the southeastern half of North 
Texas. Conditions across the northwestern half will likely remain 
too dry for precipitation associated with the front. Strong north 
winds will usher in seasonably cool air Friday and Saturday 
behind the front. 


Southwesterly flow will develop aloft Saturday night and Sunday 
as a larger scale trough deepens along the West Coast. Increasing 
isentropic lift above the cool airmass at the surface will 
generate showers and isolated thunderstorms late Saturday through 
Sunday across much of the region. Return flow will increase at the 
surface Monday as cyclogenesis intensifies in Lee of The Rockies. 
This will place North Texas back in the warm sector for most of 
next week in advance of the deepening West Coast trough. Chances 
of mainly afternoon thunderstorms will occur Monday through much 
of next week as subtle disturbances pass overhead in the southwest 
flow aloft. Shear and instability will be sufficient for some of 
these storms to become severe each afternoon and evening...and we 
will get a better look at the forecast elements as we head 
through Easter weekend. Temperatures next week will remain about 
10 degrees above normal with lows in the 60s and highs generally 
in the 80s.
