NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
638 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Aviation... 
VFR ceilings between 3500 and 4000 feet will prevail until sunset at 
all North Texas taf sites. High clouds will increase from west 
to east through the night as moisture streams in from the Pacific. 
MVFR ceilings will return overnight to Waco between 07z and 08z 
and the metroplex taf sites between 09z and 10z. Waco may even 
temporarily see IFR conditions around sunrise. All low ceilings 
should lift and scatter around midday Tuesday as dry air air 
mixes down. 


There will be a low chance of thunderstorms across the metroplex 
taf sites Tuesday afternoon/early evening. However...a cap of 
warm air should limit or prevent storm formation. 


A south wind will prevail at all North Texas taf sites through 
Tuesday afternoon. Wind speeds tonight will range from 7 to 12 
knots. Wind speeds on Tuesday will be a bit stronger and range 
from 13 to 17 knots along with a few higher gusts.

Previous discussion... /issued 353 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015/ 


The weather pattern across the region for the next week remains 
progressive and active with several chances for rain/storms...but 
unfortunately the chance for significant rainfall does not appear 
favorable. Warm weather is expected to persist through Friday and 
then a cold front will lower temperatures for a few days. 


Mostly cloudy skies have prevailed across a good part of the 
region today due to a combination of high and low clouds. 
Temperatures this afternoon vary from the low 70s in the east 
where the low clouds have hung in longer...to the low 80s in the 
west where thin high clouds have been located. A shortwave is 
moving across the Texas Panhandle with weak middle and upper level 
ridging over the north and central Texas areas. Some elevated 
returns may appear on regional radars late this afternoon and 
evening but most precipitation...if not all...is expected to 
evaporate before reaching the ground due to dry air in the middle and 
lower levels of the atmosphere. A warmer night is expected tonight 
with lows mostly in the lower 60s...but a few locations may dip 
into the upper 50s around daybreak. 


An upper level low currently located west of Baja California California will 
move into Mexico Tuesday and then across the region Tuesday night 
and Wednesday. Many of the models are producing quantitative precipitation forecast across the 
region on Tuesday but a decent cap favors a dry forecast for most 
of the area tomorrow. However...a dryline will be located west of 
the area tomorrow afternoon as large scale lift begins to spread 
east across the state in advance of the upper level disturbance. 
Temperatures near the dryline and across our western zones will 
warm into the 80s which may be enough to weaken the cap and allow 
a few storms to develop. In our western counties...forecast 
soundings keep the cap in place during the afternoon but do weaken 
the cap around sunset. If a storm or two develops on the 
dryline...they could move into our western counties during the 
late afternoon or early evening hours. Have adjusted probability of precipitation for 
tomorrow afternoon to only 20 percent in the west and Northwest. 
Cape and shear values support a threat for strong or possibly 
severe storms with a main threat for large hail. 


Rain and thunderstorm chances will spread across the region 
Tuesday night and Wednesday. The best rain chances will be over 
the eastern half of the County Warning Area Wednesday afternoon where the moisture 
depth is greatest. Additional isolated strong or severe 
storms are possible across the region during the day on 
Wednesday. The rainfall is not expected to be widespread and 
amounts are not expected to be more than a quarter of an inch on 
average. Some areas will see more than a quarter of an inch of 
rainfall under a strong or severe storm but others will not 
receive any rainfall at all. As the shortwave moves east of the 
region Wednesday evening...the rain chances will end. 


A few thunderstorms are also possible on Thursday with a decent 
threat for severe weather if the storms develop. The dryline is 
expected to surge to a location east of Interstate 35/35w Thursday 
afternoon while temperatures warm into the upper 80s and lower 
90s. Cape values along and ahead of the dryline are forecast to be 
over 2000-3000 j/kg with cin values weakening to breakable levels 
in the middle to late afternoon hours. Shear values are decent too 
but the missing piece for storms may be a decent forcing 
mechanism. The latest model runs do not indicate strong surface 
convergence along the dryline but some of the models are 
indicating a weak disturbance possibly moving over the dryline in 
the afternoon hours. Any weak disturbance could provide enough 
lift to break the cap and allow storms to develop. This situation 
needs further watching and analysis as there could be severe 
storms along the dryline on Thursday. For now...will keep a 10 pop 
for the afternoon hours as none of the models are resolving storm 
initiation and the potential for storm development may be 
isolated. 


On Friday...a cold front will slide across the region with 
additional rain and thunderstorm chances along the front. The 
latest European model (ecmwf) is about 6 hours faster with the timing of the front 
and significantly drier over the GFS. Due to the differences in 
the models...will keep probability of precipitation on the lower end at 20-30 percent. 
Saturday is expected to be dry but rain chances return Saturday 
night through Monday. The upper level flow will transition back to 
southwest flow aloft as another upper level trough develops over 
the West Coast. The models quickly return moisture back to the 
region but the moisture return may be too aggressive and too quick 
in the wake of the cold front. Better rain chances are likely 
Sunday night into Monday.
