NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1158 PM CDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Aviation... 
/06z tafs/ 


No significant concerns...continued VFR. Persistence forecast 
with generally southeasterly winds and passing middle/high clouds. 


High-based showers should remain northwest of the metroplex 
overnight. At best...this activity should only result in 
sprinkles...with a deep dry sub-cloud layer still in place. More 
widespread and vigorous convection is ongoing across West 
Texas and the Texas Panhandle...but once again...this activity 
will find an increasingly less favorable environment as it drifts 
eastward. Although the intensity should wane...measurable rainfall 
may be possible with any remnant showers that encroach on western 
portions of North Texas early Tuesday morning...but precipitation 
is unlikely at any taf sites. 


A seasonally weak surface pressure gradient will yield light 
winds overnight that will have a tendency to vary in direction. 
More organized boundary layer flow will ensue Tuesday morning... 
but the resulting southerly surface winds will remain generally 
below 12kts.

&& 


Update... 
no major updates required this evening. Only tweak was to 
increase cloud cover and add a mention of sprinkles along and 
north of a Denton to Bonham line. 




Despite fairly persistent radar echoes...surface observations 
revealed that little precipitation was making its way to the ground. 00 
UTC forward radiosonde observation confirmed that the dry air over the lowest 3 km of 
the troposphere that has been observed over the past several days 
remains across North Texas this evening. For this reason...think 
that the ongoing convective activity across the Texas Panhandle will 
struggle and weaken as it approaches our northwest zones. For now...will 
continue to carry less than 20 percent pop with a mention of 
showers across the northwest zones with sprinkles a bit further to the 
east. Enough middle/upper level moisture should allow cloud cover to 
continue across the Red River counties and expanded this area a 
tad to the east based on current trends and forecast soundings. 


Updated zones and other associated products have been sent.

Previous discussion... /issued 311 PM CDT Monday Aug 3 2015/ 
water vapor loop today shows an upper level low moving through 
Utah and into Wyoming. Forcing ahead of this feature will kick off 
scattered showers and storms on the Front Range of the Rocky 
Mountains southward into the Texas Panhandle this afternoon and 
evening. The upper level steering flow will bring this activity 
east and southeastward toward the region late tonight. This 
convection will weaken as it approaches North Texas due to very 
limited moisture and instability in the critical 700mb to 900mb 
layer. However...the airmass will remain fairly saturated above 
700mb with some meager amounts of instability. This means a few 
elevated weak showers could sustain themselves long enough to 
affect the northwest zones late tonight and the northern zones 
during the day Tuesday. Due to the weak nature of the convection 
and the dry air in the low levels...measurable rainfall will be 
difficult to achieve and have kept probability of precipitation at 10 percent...even 
though the radar should have a more promising presentation. 


The upper level low will move east through the central US during 
the next couple of days. The southern end of this system should 
provide just enough forcing for some isolated convection 
Wednesday afternoon and evening across the Red River counties and 
the northeast zones where we will maintain 20 probability of precipitation. The airmass 
over North Texas on Wednesday will actually feature quite a bit of 
instability and very little to no cin in many areas. With northwest 
flow continuing over the region on the eastern fringe of the upper 
level high...it is certainly a pattern that can result in 
unforecasted convection. Have shown 10 probability of precipitation down to I-20 Wednesday 
afternoon and evening...as stray pop-up convection will be 
possible in this airmass. If there is better forcing farther south 
than models suggest...it will result in much higher coverage. 
Aside from the Wednesday afternoon potential there is another 
very slight chance over the northeast zones late Friday as a weak 
front approaches from the northeast and stalls across the Red 
River valley. Right now...just the GFS bring this front into the 
County Warning Area...so will keep probability of precipitation out of the worded forecast. 


Otherwise the main story this week and into next week will be the 
heat. The upper level high will spend most of this week to the 
west of our area...but the aforementioned upper low that tracks 
across the plains will have the effect of turning the low level 
winds to a more westerly direction. This will drag a blob of very 
warm air just above the surface from West Texas into our area. So 
high temperatures will be climbing through midweek with temperatures near 
100 for most North Texas locations by Thursday even though the 
high does not build in over our area until the weekend. 
Temperatures this weekend and into next week look like they will 
range from 99 to 104 across the County Warning Area. Furthermore...the consensus 
of model sources suggest that afternoon dewpoints will be a degree 
or two higher than what we saw during the last couple of 
weeks. This would result in peak heat indices in the 103 to 109 
range...and necessitate heat advisories for a good portion of the 
County Warning Area beginning perhaps as early as Wednesday and persisting into 
the weekend. It is too early to issue any advisories now...but we 
will be looking at this potential over the next couple of days.
