NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
629 PM CDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Aviation... 


For the 00z tafs...the timing of stratus over area taf sites 
early tomorrow morning is the primary aviation weather concern. 


Afternoon aircraft sounding data from the dfw area indicates quite 
a bit of dry air in the middle-levels of the atmosphere. This dry air 
aloft should ensure that any isolated rain showers or 
thunderstorms that approach the dfw area through this evening will 
dissipate. No aircraft sounding data was available for the Waco 
area...however satellite and radar indicate more isolated rain 
shower activity in general across central Texas...therefore the 
Assumption is that the middle-level dry air in place over the dfw 
area does not extend south over central Texas at this time. As a 
result...left vcsh in at the Waco taf through 01z. 


High resolution model guidance continues to show stratus building 
over the region late tonight into tomorrow morning. Went ahead and 
adjusted the timing of the onset of stratus over area taf sites 
based on the latest high resolution model guidance...however did 
not make any significant changes to the flight category 
restrictions from the 18z tafs. Continue to expect low-MVFR 
stratus over the dfw area for a couple of hours around/just after 
sunrise tomorrow morning. The Waco area is expected to see lower 
ceilings and some IFR visibility restrictions in slightly deeper low- 
level moisture in place across central Texas. Expect the dfw area 
taf sites to improve to VFR conditions around noon with Waco 
returning to VFR conditions during the early afternoon hours of 
the day. 


We will have to keep a close eye on rain shower/thunderstorm 
activity along the Interstate 35 corridor tomorrow afternoon. The 
dynamic remnants of Odile will provide some lift for storms across 
the region tonight through tomorrow afternoon. However...this lift 
will be building in from the west...and the Interstate 35 corridor 
represents the eastern edge of the best lift tomorrow. Also...with 
dry air already in place aloft...it will be more difficult to get 
a significant amount of showers or thunderstorms going along the 
Interstate 35 corridor...despite the lift that is expected to be 
in place. As a result...left all mention of precipitation out of 
the tafs for tomorrow afternoon as the best chances for any 
precipitation will remain west of local area taf sites.

Previous discussion... /issued 330 PM CDT Friday Sep 19 2014/ 
GOES precipitable water sounder shows significant drying occurring 
aloft as easterly winds on the periphery of a large anticyclone 
over the eastern United States bring drier air into the region. 
Most of the dry advection is located just off of the surface...as 
evidenced by this morning/S upper air sounding which showed 
precipitable water dropping a half inch from yesterday. However 
a shallow moist layer near the surface contains enough instability 
for a few weak showers that have popped up over mainly the 
southern zones this afternoon. These showers will dissipate with 
loss of heating. 


Otherwise the primary feature of interest is the remnants of 
tropical cyclone Odile...currently located southwest of Lubbock. 
The remnant low will take an eastward jog during the overnight 
hours which will bring some good chances of rain to the doorstep 
of our western County Warning Area. While we do expect stronger and more organized 
lift to reach our western zones...the aforementioned dry advection 
from the east will be fighting the prospects for heavy or 
organized rainfall in our County Warning Area. Still we expect scattered showers 
and storms mainly west of I-35 late tonight and tomorrow...with 
some isolated activity developing along the I-35 corridor with 
afternoon heating. High temperatures tomorrow will be in the low to middle 
80s over the western zones where more low clouds are 
expected...but should reach the upper 80s to near 90 in the more 
sunny eastern areas. 


The remnant low pressure center will encounter increasing deep 
layer wind shear over the next couple of days...which will 
separate the upper level cyclone center from the low-middle level 
center and result in a weakening/dissipating system. The best 
chances of rain will remain close to the 700mb center...which is 
forecast to head back to the west and southwest. Thus rain chances 
associated with this low will remain well west of the region 
Sunday and Monday. Drier air and more sunshine is expected 
Sunday...which will boost high temperatures into the upper 80s and lower 
90s. Dewpoints may mix out into the low 60s Sunday afternoon...so 
it should feel fairly pleasant despite the almost hot temperatures. 


A weak cold front will reach the area Sunday night and Monday. 
This front will move in from the northeast...thus it will have 
very little moisture to work with and only result in a slight 
temperature cool down. Will show just a slight chance of 
showers/storms over the northern areas Sunday night...and over the 
southern areas Monday afternoon. Temperatures behind the front 
will be in the 80s for highs and 60s for lows area wide during the 
midweek time frame. Temperatures will gradually warm and moderate 
thereafter. The forecast looks to remain dry...with rather limited 
deep layer moisture and the storm track displaced well north of 
the region into next weekend.
