NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1250 PM CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Aviation... 
/18z tafs/ 


Concerns...none...VFR throughout. 


The thunderstorm complex in eastern Oklahoma will shed some 
cirrus...and persistent northerly flow aloft will clutter the 
skies above North Texas. The convective activity is expected to 
dissipate this afternoon...remaining well to the northeast of 
metroplex sites. An unseasonably dry layer beneath the cirrus 
will preclude low/middle clouds at metroplex sites. But in central 
Texas...where low-level moisture is a bit more ample...scattered 
daytime cumulus can be expected. 


A cold front will invade the Texas Panhandle on Friday. Shower and 
thunderstorm development in advance of the boundary may affect 
northwest arrivals late in the day...but the activity is expected 
to remain far northwest of the Bowie cornerpost.

&& 






Previous discussion... /issued 342 am CDT Thursday Aug 27 2015/ 
the drier than normal airmass was noticeable yesterday with 
dewpoints in the 50s across much of the region during the 
afternoon. Although the dewpoints have come up some overnight... 
this mornings lows will range from the middle 60s to lower 70s across 
most of the region...which is about 5 degrees below normal for 
this time of the year. 


An upper level ridge over eastern New Mexico this morning will 
shift to the southwest during the next 36 hours...as a shortwave 
currently over Wyoming moves east across the northern and Central 
Plains. As the shortwave moves east...a cold front will sink south 
down the plains. This front is expected to stall near or in the 
northwestern part of the forecast area Saturday. There will be low 
/20 percent/ chances of showers and thunderstorms across the 
northern two tiers of North Texas counties Friday night. Have 
placed 10 percent probability of precipitation with no mention of showers/thunderstorms 
north of I-20 for Saturday since the front will be near the region 
but the upper level support will be on the decrease at this point. 


Highs will be mostly in the 90s for the next week. A few spots 
across the central and western zones will likely reach 100 degrees 
this afternoon...and a few spots across the west may reach 100 
degrees Saturday and Sunday. 


The GFS...European model (ecmwf) and Canadian models indicate that an upper level 
trough/low will move west into far eastern Texas Sunday 
night/Monday. This system is then expected to meander across East 
Texas/western Louisiana through late next week. Confidence in the 
position of this system is low as there model solutions vary and 
there has not been run to run model consistency on how they handle 
this system. Based on the 00z runs...have just placed low probability of precipitation 
over the extreme southeast Monday and Tuesday afternoons...and 
across the east Wednesday.
