NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
409 am CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Discussion... 
regional radars showed numerous rain showers extending from the 
Texas Panhandle east-southeast along the Red River over to Wichita 
Falls. This cluster of precipitation was likely associated with deep 
warm...moist air advection over the area as evidenced by radar VAD 
wind profiles showing wind direction veering with height from 925 to 
700 mb in this area. This fairly deep warm air advection was likely 
associated with a retreating/reorganizing frontal boundary in 
response to a shortwave trough that was located along the 
Colorado/New Mexico border per 08z/3am water vapor satellite 
imagery. 


This zone of strong low to middle-level warm air advection and lift is 
expected to move slowly east along the Red River today. At least 
scattered rain showers are expected to persist within this zone of 
ascent as it moves east...and went ahead and left 30 to 40 probability of precipitation in 
near the Red River throughout the day today as a result. Some high 
resolution model guidance indicates that precipitation will extend 
as far south as Interstate 20 today...so maintained at least a 20 
pop down to just south of Interstate 20...including over most of the 
dfw area. Rainfall is generally expected to remain light...but 
periods of moderate to heavy rainfall will occur with any embedded 
thunderstorm activity. Models consistently advertise precipitable 
water values of 2 inches or slightly more within this zone of 
ascent...so any deep convection/storms will be capable of very 
efficient precipitation production. 


The primary reason for thinking that thunderstorm activity will not 
be more common along the Red River today is simply abundant cloud 
cover which is already in place. If there are any breaks in the 
clouds...thunderstorms will likely become more common...making 
locally heavy rainfall more likely. However...with fairly persistent 
lift in a very deep moist atmosphere...think that clouds will tend 
to hold in today north of Interstate 20. Temperatures will likely 
remain in the 80s again today for the dfw area. These unseasonably 
cool temperatures will likely be more expansive today as the zone of 
ascent and cloud cover is expected to be larger than yesterday. 
Central Texas will likely still climb into the lower 90s at least 
with more opportunities for sunshine with no organized lift expected 
over these areas over the next 24 hours. 


With the upper level ridge positioned over the Desert 
Southwest...North Texas will be under northwest flow aloft. As 
such...the organizing shortwave over the Colorado rockies is 
expected to slide southeast today and bring elevated rain chances 
to north and central Texas overnight Wednesday through much of the 
day Thursday. Based on mass fields...model guidance has been gradually 
shifting the focus of where the highest precipitation amounts 
should be...further south out of northern Oklahoma and into southern 
Oklahoma and North Texas...with the surface low prognosticated to reside 
over northeast Texas early Thursday morning. A complex of 
convection should develop and traverse south-southeast overnight tonight and 
affect the region. 


The precipitation gradient on Thursday is expected to be oriented 
with higher amounts in the northeast and minimal rainfall totals 
in the southwest. While most areas will only receive amounts in 
the quarter to a half an inch range...locally higher amounts are 
possible...especially for areas northeast of a Sherman to Canton 
line. Forecast precipitable water values are expected to exceed 2 
inches early Thursday morning for our northeast counties...which 
is well above 150% of normal. Additionally...warm cloud depths 
will be quite large...suggesting warm rain processes dominating 
the situation. In such scenarios...rainfall totals can quickly add 
up. 


Once the shortwave exits the area on Friday...skies should clear 
out and temperatures will gradually warm. However...with the 
persistence of northwest flow expected to last several days...temperatures 
will be slow to warm and should remain below the climatological 
norm through the weekend. The upper level ridge will gradually 
build eastward encompassing more of Texas early next week...and as a 
result...expect a warm and dry forecast through early next week 
once the aforementioned shortwave pushes southeast out of our area 
on Friday.

Aviation... 
/issued 1147 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014/ 
although most models try to keep convection north of the 
metroplex...the hi-res solutions do try to move scattered showers 
through the metroplex. Will be keeping vcsh across the metroplex 
during the morning through middle afternoon...then thunderstorms in the vicinity until 
31/02z. Will keep kact dry...but isolated vcsh are possible on 
Wednesday. Otherwise...VFR with light winds tonight becoming 
southeasterly at 9-14 knots on Wednesday. 75
