NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
103 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Aviation... 
/18z tafs/ 


Not a whole lot of change from 12z tafs outside of a few minor 
tweaks on stratus timing tonight. VFR with scattered clouds is 
expected through midnight...as bulk of the large-scale forcing 
remains well north and west of the airports. Timing of MVFR ceilings 
into dfw will occur between 09z-12z...and between 07z- 09z at 
Waco. It is possible with the 35-45kt low level jet closer than last night 
that stratus may develop sooner with timing bumped up on later 
forecasts. For now...continuity was the best path on the stratus 
timing. The borderline IFR ceilings at Waco have been removed due to 
stronger low level winds just above the surface. This should keep 
the bottom of the boundary layer more mixed and ceilings within the 
MVFR category through late morning Thursday. South-southeast 
winds will remain steady 10-15 kts through sunrise Thursday. 


By midday Thursday...winds should veer and strengthen just ahead 
of an approaching cold front with sustained speeds increasing to 
between 15-25 kts. Storm initiation should occur near or just 
northwest of dfw airports late in the afternoon as the cold front 
and large-scale ascent arrives with a few possible severe. Have 
introduced thunderstorms in the vicinity at dfw later in the afternoon or by 02/22z. A 
frontal passage and wind-shift will likely occur by early evening Thursday 
at dfw metropolitan airports and by middle-late evening at Waco. Northwest 
winds will gradually increase to between 10-15 kts behind the cold 
front Thursday night.

Previous discussion... /issued 403 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014/ 
water vapor loop early this morning shows a well defined shortwave 
trough moving out of the Front Range of The Rockies into Kansas and 
Nebraska. Upper level forcing ahead of this feature is resulting in 
lift across the Southern Plains...and with a small amount of 
instability aloft...some elevated convection has developed. The tail 
end of this activity stretches into our far North Texas...and the northwest 
zones may receive a brief shower early this morning. 


Otherwise stratus across central Texas is surging northward into the 
the County Warning Area. This stratus should reach the I-20 corridor this morning 
before it begins to mix out. A mostly sunny afternoon will allow 
temperatures to once again warm into the lower 90s for most of the 
County Warning Area today...with some middle 90s in western zones. The dry line in West 
Texas will be ill-defined today...but still some isolated high-based 
convection may form west of the County Warning Area in the heat of the afternoon. If 
this activity develops it could impact far northwest zones this 
evening. Slightly better chances of rain will occur overnight and 
toward morning for the northwest zones as stronger forcing begins to arrive 
into the region...which may spark some elevated storms. Lows tonight 
will be unseasonably warm and in the 70s complements of moderate 
southerly winds and a robust stratus invasion before daybreak. 


There is a bit of good news in the forecast regarding the badly 
needed rainfall chances with the Thursday system. All of the model 
guidance has slowed the progression of the shortwave trough by about 
6 to 9 hours...and therefore now show the best upper level forcing 
for lift coinciding with frontal passage. Yesterday there was 
concern that the lift would be exiting the region by the time the 
front arrived. This more favorable setup warrants increasing probability of precipitation a 
little more...especially for the eastern zones Thursday evening. 
Best chances of rain with this event will be over the eastern areas. 
One note regarding the pop forecast...the best chances of convection 
along the I-35 corridor look like they will occur in the 4pm to 9pm 
time frame...and therefore it is being split into 2 verification 
periods. Quite simply this means that if we were to forecast a 
chance of rain for this entire event...probability of precipitation for the I-35 corridor 
would be higher than both of the values for Thursday and Thursday 
night indicate. They are artificially lower because there is 
uncertainty on which verification window the rain falls in because 
it so close to the end of one and the start of the next. 


The front will enter the northwest zones dry early in the afternoon...but 
convection will begin to develop along it by 3 PM. The frontal 
passage and upper forcing will also coincide with peak heating...and 
therefore will work to weaken a modest cap over the region. Temperatures 
will be hot again Thursday with highs in the low to middle 90s over the 
region...and with dewpoints near 70...this will result in surface 
cape of 1500-2500j/kg. Deep layer shear looks more than sufficient 
for organized convective modes...and therefore a severe weather 
threat will exist Thursday afternoon and evening. Storm modes will 
likely be more linear across the northeast zones...but a few 
discrete supercells will be possible over the western and central 
zones where the cap is stronger and will inhibit a solid line from 
developing. The primary severe weather threat will be hail and 
damaging winds. Low level winds appear too veered and unidirectional 
to support a tornado potential Worth mentioning...but of course this 
is a non-zero threat when surface based supercells are anticipated. 
Again not all of the area will see rain as activity will be more 
isolated in western zones and scattered across central zones. Those 
that do see thunderstorms may pick up an inch of rainfall. 


Cooler and much drier air will invade the region Thursday night and 
into the day on Friday. Highs will be about 10 degrees cooler on 
Friday with sunny skies and very low humidity. The surface high 
will settle in over North Texas Friday night...and with clear skies 
and dewpoints near 40...this will allow temperatures to plummet into the 
40s and 50s over the area. Saturday looks very nice with light 
winds...sunny skies and highs around 80. South winds will return by 
Saturday night and therefore it will not be as cool. Higher moisture 
with dewpoints in the 50s will arrive Sunday. Temperatures will 
moderate quickly early next week due to the southerly winds and 
higher moisture. Some upper 80s and low 90s for highs are expected 
by Tuesday...with lows again warming into the 60s and 70s. 


The GFS indicates light quantitative precipitation forecast over the area Sunday and Monday...but 
model sounding show this is just a shallow layer of moisture beneath 
a strong inversion. Rainfall looks unlikely...but it is possible 
some drizzle or advection fog may occur. Either way the forecast 
remains dry as North Texas will be in strong northwest flow aloft 
with the upper energy for lift remaining to our northeast.
