NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
653 PM CDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Aviation... 
/00z tafs/ 


VFR conditions expected through the period outside of convective 
areas which appear now that they will hold off until sometime 
tomorrow for the major airports. Heavy rain and thunderstorms to 
the northwest should weaken as they move east. While there could 
be some spotty showers around during the morning...think the 
better chances for thunderstorms will be tomorrow 
afternoon/evening. Some temporary MVFR ceilings may work into the Waco 
area during the morning hours...otherwise VFR conditions will prevail.

Previous discussion... /issued 342 PM CDT Thursday Aug 28 2014/ 
a middle-latitude trough transiting the plains has effectively split 
the upper ridge that has persisted the last several days...leaving 
Texas in a col. Although the main action the next few days will 
either be associated with the system to our north or with a 
disturbance on the Texas coast...the weakness aloft will maintain 
rain chances throughout north and central Texas into the upcoming 
weekend. 


Weakening subsidence in the middle-levels has allowed showers and 
storms to move farther inland today. The activity invading central 
Texas is far from the coastal low and is largely diurnally driven. 
As such...this precipitation should come to an end by nightfall... 
making minimal additional progress. The approaching system to the 
north might suggest a vigorous low level jet could develop tonight...but 
nocturnal convection closer to the coast tonight will likely 
disrupt this process. Even so...deep warm/moist advection may be 
sufficient to allow the ongoing activity to our northwest to trace 
across northern portions of the County Warning Area tonight into Friday morning... 
primarily affecting areas north of the I-20 corridor. 


This sequence of events will determine what transpires later 
Friday. If the activity is widespread and persists much of the 
morning...it may limit the extent of redevelopment in these areas 
Friday afternoon. But in such a scenario...substantial outflow 
boundaries could aid in the initiation of showers/storms farther 
south. Even with more extensive cloud cover...surface heating will 
be sufficient to push MLCAPE values above 2000j/kg. However... 
increasingly moist adiabatic lapse rates aloft should limit the 
intensity of updrafts...and weak middle-level flow will shorten the 
lifespan of individual cells. The plains trough and its associated 
shear/forcing will be far to the north...but adequate dcape will 
allow for some gusty winds across north and central Texas Friday 
afternoon. 


As the middle-latitude low ejects into the Great Lakes Friday 
night...the disturbance near the coast will get pulled 
northeastward toward Louisiana. Its associated convection Friday 
night into Saturday morning will again be upstream of central 
Texas...limiting the extent of any warm advection activity in 
North Texas. By Saturday afternoon...an extensive area of showers 
and thunderstorms may be ongoing from southeast Texas into 
Louisiana. Our eastern zones would on the western fringe of this. 


By Sunday...this disturbance will have been absorbed into the middle- 
latitude flow...but the weakness aloft will linger. With minimal 
inhibition and rich Gulf moisture in place...one final afternoon 
of convective activity may affect portions of East Texas. 
Thereafter...the subtropical ridge should take hold. Above normal 
temperatures will prevail next week...with uncomfortable humidity.
