NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1150 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Aviation... 
/06z tafs/ convective activity has now shifted east of all north 
central Texas taf sites...with just a few lingering showers 
departing the vicinity of Waco currently. Key forecast problem 
remaining overnight concerns the return of low stratus into the 
metroplex (and later...waco) taf sites. The leading edge of the 
low cloud mass over western OK has now made it into Bowie...and 
expect at least broken MVFR ceilings to build into dfw-area sites by 
10z. Believe the bulk of these clouds will shunt north of these 
airports...however...so expect skies to scatter out after 14z. 
MVFR ceilings will be delayed a bit at Waco...arriving by 11z and 
departing by 15z. Otherwise...light northwesterly flow will 
continue in the metroplex overnight...and through the day 
Saturday. Waco will see a shift to northwest winds by 11z.

Previous discussion... /issued 237 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016/ 
Tornado Watch 124 for all but Jack...Palo Pinto...Eastland...Stephens 
and Young counties continues through 03z/10 PM CDT this evening. 
Numerous thunderstorms continue to fire in the strong warm air advection sector 
across the southeast half of the County Warning Area...with other discrete cells 
firing across the western counties ahead of the dryline. The 
environment remains ripe for all modes of severe weather due to 
abundant moisture/shear/and instability. All interests within the 
watch area should be prepared for severe weather from now through 
middle evening. Storms may be discrete and supercellular in structure 
or occur in storm clusters as large- scale ascent continue move 
across the Southern Plains through tonight. By early evening...storms 
should morph into bowing line segments or a broken squall line 
moving across those areas east of east of I-35/35e tonight. Mesoscale- 
low type tornadoes will continue to be possible well into the 
evening hours...considering moist surface dew points in the lower 70s 
which will result in low local/S and cloud bases. In addition...large 
hail and damaging winds will continue to remain threats as well. 


In addition...localized flash flooding will be possible along and 
east of a Bonham...Rockwall...Corsicana to Hearne line where 1-2 
inches with isolated 3 inch amounts across our far southeast 
counties possible tonight. It/S a little late in the game for any 
flash flood or flood watches...but these areas will be monitored 
closely for hydrologic warnings in addition to all the severe 
weather warnings. The current middle level trough negatively rotating 
out over the southern High Plains should continue to lift out 
progressively to the east-northeast tonight. Subsequently the 
surface low over northwest Texas will also lift rapidly northeast 
into eastern Kansas and western MO by sunrise Saturday. A Pacific cold 
front will overtake the dryline early Saturday morning and exit 
out of the eastern counties by middle-late morning. This will briefly 
mark and end to rain chances across north-central Texas as brief 
shortwave ridging occurs aloft and allow for a brief dry period 
Saturday afternoon through Sunday. A strong cold front arrives 
late Saturday night and Sunday...but will mainly cool highs into 
the upper 60s and 70s across the area. A few strong to marginally 
severe storms cannot be ruled out late Sunday afternoon and 
evening with this front. 


Another strong middle-upper level trough approaches the area Sunday 
night into Monday. North and central Texas will remain on the cool 
side of things this time around...as a stationary front separating 
very humid and moist air with cool and moist air remains settled 
across south and southwest Texas. This trough will even be more 
progressive and lift quickly toward the Mississippi River valley 
by Monday evening. The best rain chances will occur late Sunday 
night and Monday...but right now this does not appear to be a 
major hydrological event...though any additional rainfall will 
aggravate ongoing river flooding across the region. Middle level 
instability will still be present over the frontal inversion...so 
a few elevated strong storms containing hail and lightning can be 
expected as we move into Monday and continue through Monday 
evening. 


Shortwave ridging or semi-dry west-northwest flow aloft will dominate 
weather across the Southern Plains Tuesday through the end of 
next week. The area should finally get time to dry out and recover 
from these current rounds of storms expected either side of the 
weekend. Temperatures will be seasonable as well.
