NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
340 am CST sun Mar 1 2015 


Discussion... 
warm...moist air aloft continues to overun a shallow cold airmass 
at the surface across North Texas...noted by the cold 
conditions...low clouds and light precipitation. A 47+ degree warm 
nose was present at 4000 feet according to last night/S 
sounding...and this temperature has probably climbed even more 
since then. Unfortunately...this trend has been very slow to 
transition down to the surface due to widespread areas of wintry 
precipitation which occurred Friday and Saturday. Trends over the 
past couple of hours have shown temperatures climbing a few tenths 
of a degree per hour at most locations. This should continue 
through sunrise...with slightly faster warming thereafter. We will 
let the Winter Weather Advisory for areas west of the Interstate 
35 corridor continue until noon...when sufficient time has been 
allowed for temperatures to climb above the freezing point. 


As for the precipitation...it will continue for the next few days 
in advance of a deepening upper level trough along the West Coast. 
The best isentropic lift will occur across the eastern half of 
North Texas...hence the increasing probability of precipitation from west to east through 
Monday. For tonight...rain may once again mix with freezing rain 
or freezing drizzle across the northwest where temperatures could 
drop below freezing for a while during the overnight hours. This 
is due to a second southward push of shallow Arctic air. Any 
accumulations would be fairly light and another advisory is not 
planned at this time. We will need to keep an eye on temperature 
trends late this evening and overnight tonight for areas generally 
north and west of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. 


Continued overrunning will bring cool and wet conditions across 
the region on Monday. A warm front will bring a brief reprieve 
from the cold as it lifts north across the area Monday night. High 
temperatures on Tuesday should climb into the 60s and 70s south of 
the warm front. 


A split-flow regime will be in pace across the Continental U.S. This week. 
An upper level trough in the northern branch will deepen across 
the plains on Tuesday. This will send a cold front barreling back 
to the south and into North Texas by Tuesday evening. 
Meanwhile...the West Coast upper low will begin its eastward 
advance towards North Texas in the southern branch. Scattered 
showers and a few storms will be possible along and ahead of the 
cold front Tuesday and Tuesday night. Instability will be marginal 
at best...so we will keep thunder in the isolated category. Much 
colder air will spill south into the area behind the front Tuesday 
night and Wednesday. The most recent guidance now indicates sub- 
freezing temperatures at all locations for Wednesday night. 


Additional precipitation is expected well behind the front 
Wednesday and Wednesday night as the southern branch trough 
approaches from the west. Temperatures will become plenty cold at 
all locations for rain to mix and perhaps switch over to sleet in 
the cold air late Wednesday. Thermal profiles indicate the 
possibility of some snow as well...and we have included sleet or 
snow for all counties Wednesday night. The amount of available 
moisture...strength of the ascent associated with the trough...and 
depth of the cold layer are all uncertainties...so we will watch 
how the system evolves over the next few days and fine-tune the 
specifics as it draws nearer. 


Some drying will occur Thursday night and Friday as the upper 
trough moves quickly east across the southern Continental U.S.. models now 
indicate yet another system passing east across Texas next 
weekend. Low probability of precipitation have been added to the extended forecast for 
next Saturday and Sunday.
