NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
652 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Aviation... 
/12z tafs/ 


Concerns...MVFR ceilings and thunder potential. 


Showers and thunderstorms across western North Texas will diminish 
in intensity this morning...but outflow from the ongoing activity 
may aid in additional development closer to the metroplex at peak 
heating this afternoon. 


As a shortwave approaches tonight...a vigorous low level jet will ensue... 
initiating widespread showers and thunderstorms in the vicinity of 
a nearly stationary frontal boundary. At this time...it appears 
this activity would still be northwest of metroplex taf sites 
during the overnight lull in traffic. But as the impulse aloft 
moves east...the activity may ease into the metroplex during the 
morning push.

Previous discussion... /issued 411 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015/ 
latest upper air analysis indicated a weakness in the middle level 
height fields that resides along a line from The Big Bend of 
Texas...through central Oklahoma and northeast into the Midwest. 
At the surface a cold front was located in the vicinity of the 
middle level weakness...and as of now was located from just north of 
Midland to near Vernon and into the Oklahoma City metropolitan. The front 
was effectively stationary but it did make some southeastward 
progress last night as a result of rain cooled outflows from 
extensive convective activity. 


Also of note in the upper level analysis was an upper level ridge 
axis at 250mb that was superimposed above the middle level weakness 
and cold front. Convection developing within a high altitude ridge 
is an interesting occurrence for our region...as it is usually 
something that occurs in the tropics. Having this upper ridge over 
the area means that the tropopause is unusually high over the 
region...which allows for very deep and tall convection. The 
convection northwest of the region last night and this morning 
had cloud tops of -80c to -85c. This is indicative of convection 
that is capable of heavy downpours since there is so much more 
vertical space for hydrometeors to develop in a thunderstorm 
which often results in very high rainfall rates. The threat for 
heavy rainfall exists with this synoptic set up despite the 
relatively dry air and lowish humidity seen on the regional 
soundings last night. 


The forecast challenge is determining where this deep convection 
will occur due to the risk for heavy rainfall. All of the latest 
model guidance has shifted the location of the frontal boundary 
and quantitative precipitation forecast axis farther to the southeast than the previous model 
runs. This is also confirmed in the short-term high-res model 
guidance. Expect the front to remain stationary today...but it 
should begin to move southeast by late afternoon and early 
evening as differential heating occurs. The front should move 
into the northwestern zones by this evening...where it will become 
a focus for slow moving storms to develop and track along. In 
addition to the front...a slow moving shortwave trough that is 
currently moving into West Texas will track slowly east-northeast 
with dynamic lift increasing over the region later today and into 
tonight. Have bumped up the rain chances over the entire 
region...but the northwest zones will see the greatest coverage 
of rain where probability of precipitation of 60-80 percent are now forecast. Given the 
potential for slow moving storms producing over 2 inches per hour 
rainfall rates along the front...we are also highlighting a 
potential for flash flooding over the northwestern zones where a 
Flash Flood Watch has been issued through noon Wednesday. 


For today...the current convective complex across West Texas 
should make slow and steady progress eastward through the morning 
hours...likely impacting the western zones through midday. After 
midday...expect the complex to become more disorganized and 
possibly dissipate...but it should send out an outflow boundary 
to help kick off additional isolated to scattered showers and 
storms over the central and eastern zones. Probability of precipitation are near 20-30 
percent southeast of a Goldthwaite to dfw to Sherman line...with 
the likely probability of precipitation reserved for the northwest zones. Temperatures 
today are tricky...but generally have forecast low to middle 80s in 
the northwest where clouds/rain should keep temperatures cool...with 
lower 90s over the central and eastern zones. 


Believe the greatest threat for heavy rain and flooding will come 
tonight northwest of a Sherman to Fort Worth to Comanche line. 
Convection should Blossom this evening and overnight as a 
nocturnal low level jet enhances convergence near the front and 
lift from the shortwave trough reaches its maximum. This could 
result in a training band of slow moving storms with multi-inch 
rainfall possible in the watch area. Probability of precipitation will range from 80 
percent in the northwest...rapidly decreasing off to the 
southeast. This round of rain and storms will continue into 
Wednesday morning...but should end by the afternoon as the 
shortwave lifts northeast and the frontal boundary also retreats 
north due to increasing southerly low level flow. 


The remainder of the forecast is pretty simple. An upper level 
high will build into the region from the east during the middle-late 
week period with temperatures beginning a slow climb. Highs should 
reach the upper 90s in most areas by early next week. Guidance has 
come in a little cooler with temperatures early next week as it is less 
enthusiastic about bringing the low level winds around to the 
west and keeping them more southerly. This may be enough to Ward 
off dfw and Waco/S first 100 degree reading through this 7 day 
forecast period. Regardless...it is certainly going to be hot and 
dry well into next week.
