NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
428 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Discussion... 
a stalled 850mb front stretches west to east between the I-20 
corridor and the Red River. A 30-35kt low level jet has helped to initiate 
showers and thunderstorms along this boundary after midnight... 
aided by the large-scale lift of an approaching trough. The 
steering flow is resulting in training...the heavy rain with which 
will re-aggravate flooding issues. However...the training will 
eventually be disrupted by the advancing mesoscale convective system in western North 
Texas...but the threat of heavy rain will continue until a cold 
front arrives later this morning. The linear mesoscale convective system will continue 
moving east this morning...impacting areas primarily south of the 
I-20 corridor. Despite weak deep layer shear...a damaging wind 
threat will continue with the line....but the progressive nature 
of the cold pool suggests this will wane as the morning 
progresses. 


Outflow associated with the mesoscale convective system will gradually become 
indistinguishable from the northerly winds behind an advancing 
cold front. Although the northerly surface winds will sweep 
through the County Warning Area today...the 850mb front will lag behind...and 
elevated thunderstorms are expected to redevelop across southern 
zones this afternoon. And with the middle-level trough axis not 
passing our longitude until this evening...shower and thunderstorm 
chances will linger throughout North Texas the remainder of the 
day. Precipitable water values will remain well above normal...and any of the 
cells that develop this afternoon could contain heavy rain. 


As the trough passes to our east...deep northerly flow will ensue 
tonight. At long last...rain chances will come to an end from 
north to south early Sunday. Subtropical ridging will then build 
in...allowing the Lone Star state a chance to dry out. The low is 
now prognosticated to be east of the Mississippi Valley much of the 
week...which will significantly reduce the chance of rain in East 
Texas. As a result...will maintain a dry forecast beyond Sunday 
morning. After a cloudy may...the first week of June will get off 
to a very sunny start. The wet ground will temper the warming 
trend...but high temperatures should reach the upper 80s by late 
in the week. 


Both the GFS and Canadian hint that the ridge could break down by 
next weekend...but the European model (ecmwf) intensifies its grip on Texas. The 
European model (ecmwf) may be swayed too strongly by climatology...but the 
spaghetti splatter of GFS ensemble members means we should also 
have a skeptical eye with the GFS/Canadian operational solutions. 
June is among the wettest months of the year climatologically...so 
we should expect this respite from the rain will not be permanent. 


25 


&& 


Aviation... 
/issued 1200 am CDT Sat may 30 2015/ 
thunderstorm complex over West Texas is expected to move 
southeast across north and central Texas overnight into Saturday 
morning. In the meantime...an 850mb front that lies pretty close 
to the I-20 corridor according to the 00z analysis... will be a 
focus for additional development. These storms will move east 
along this 850mb front...and training of echoes will result in a 
flash flood hazard overnight. 


A cold front is forecast to move through the metroplex middle to 
late morning with a wind shift to the northwest and then north at 
around 10 knots. Some rain showers will continue through the 
morning. An improvement to lower end MVFR is forecast for the 
afternoon and continue through Saturday evening.
