NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
720 PM CDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


Aviation... 


For the 00z tafs...elevated rain showers or thunderstorms on 
Tuesday are the primary forecast concern. 


A relatively dry low-level air mass in place across the region 
will keep conditions VFR through tomorrow morning. VFR conditions 
are likely to hold throughout the day on Tuesday as well...however 
elevated moisture return may result in some scattered showers or 
thunderstorms developing across the region after 15z tomorrow. 
Models are not consistent with the onset or placement of this 
elevated convection tomorrow...however most models show some 
elevated precipitation develop by the late morning hours of the 
day. 


Forecast soundings indicate some shallow cape for air lifted from 
the 850 mb level or about 1 mile above ground level. Confidence in scattered 
precipitation developing on top of the dfw area is not high at 
this time...so chose to highlight the most likely period for 
precipitation with a mention of vcsh from 15 to 22z. May have to 
add a mention of thunderstorms in the vicinity or just a couple of hours of persistent 
thunder if confidence increases that this elevated convection will 
develop right on top of the dfw area. 


Aside from the potential for elevated showers and storms near 
airports tomorrow...VFR conditions and southerly flow is expected 
to persist throughout the day.

Previous discussion... /issued 345 PM CDT Monday Apr 20 2015/ 


After a quiet and dry period yesterday through tonight...rain 
chances return to the forecast on Tuesday. The forecast through 
Friday is muddled and challenging due to discrepancies between 
the models. Part of the issue with the models and the forecast for 
the next few days is that the disturbances and/or atmospheric 
elements that are key to different forecast elements are not being 
well sampled over the Pacific Ocean or Mexico. The overall 
confidence in the forecast through Friday is moderate that we 
will see thunderstorms in the region Tuesday through Friday and 
some of these storms are likely to be severe...but confidence in 
the specifics is low. Now we just have to answer the 
where...when...and threats questions. I think it is safe to say 
that the forecast will have daily changes and it is important this 
week to check the latest updates each day. 


Tonight will be a quiet night with mostly clear skies and light 
winds. The winds across the region are already starting to turn to 
the south...and south to southeast winds will prevail across all 
of the region by daybreak. Some high clouds will be 
present...mainly across the southern counties of the County Warning Area. Low 
temperatures will range from the middle 40s to lower 50s. 
Thunderstorms may trek across western Oklahoma and/or northwest 
Texas late tonight but are not expected to reach North Texas. 


Elevated showers and thunderstorms are possible across the region 
on Tuesday. Hi resolution model guidance and forecast soundings 
support elevated thunderstorms across the southern third of the 
region during the day tomorrow. The lift for these storms comes 
from isentropic lift around the 300k level. Sufficient elevated 
instability may result in some gusty winds or small hail with 
these storms. Elsewhere...a suite of other models including the 
4km WRF and European model (ecmwf) indicate elevated showers and thunderstorms 
will be possible. Will carry a 30-40 pop across the area all day 
tomorrow but confidence is low in exactly where showers/storms 
will occur. North of Interstate 20...virga may be observed with 
any elevated activity in the morning hours. Also on 
Tuesday...thunderstorms are expected to develop on the dryline to 
our west during the afternoon hours. Right now it looks like the 
dryline will be too far west for these storms to affect our 
western counties but will leave a 20 pop in the evening hours for 
this slight chance. 


Better chances for severe weather may occur on Wednesday. 
Thunderstorms are likely to form along a warm front just north of 
the Red River and may track into north or northeast Texas. As also 
mentioned in the Storm Prediction Center day3 outlook...storm Mode is uncertain for 
Wednesday. Isolated supercells may develop near this boundary but 
there is also support that an mesoscale convective system will develop and track 
southeast. In addition...at the surface...the dryline may be 
closer to our western border as a surface low moves into northwest 
Texas during the afternoon hours. North Texas will be warm and very 
unstable /cape values exceeding 3000 j/kg with deep layer shear 
values over 40 kts/ and any embedded disturbance in the zonal 
flow aloft would be enough to spark isolated to scattered 
convection near the dryline and possibly elsewhere if any 
other boundaries are present. We should be able to better refine 
storm evolution as we approach Wednesday but the key message at 
this time is a good part of the area could be under a threat for 
severe storms. 


The chance for rain continues on Thursday with the surface low 
located in our western zones and indications of another 
disturbance moving overhead. The best chances for storms on 
Thursday would likely be across our eastern zones...ahead of the 
surface low...and severe storms will again be possible. 
Instability parameters and shear values are greater Thursday 
afternoon than they are forecast to be for Wednesday. We will 
have to be aware of any boundaries left over in the area for 
additional foci for thunderstorm development Thursday. 


On Friday...a large upper level low will swing into the plains 
from Baja California bringing US another chance for storms before a front 
sweeps through the region. The latest run of the European model (ecmwf) and 
Canadian have slowed the timing of this system over the GFS. The 
GFS has the highest chances for rain in the morning hours while 
the other models focus more in the afternoon hours. Due to the 
discrepancies will keep 50-60 probability of precipitation but extend the coverage area 
and timing into Friday night. Once again...severe weather will be 
possible but will be dependent on timing and evolution/Mode. The 
atmosphere will be very unstable once again. 


While it is too difficult to dive into specific details for storm 
evolution...Mode...and severity in the Wednesday through Friday 
time frame...it looks like it could be an active period with 
threats for large hail...damaging winds...isolated tornadoes...and 
flooding. At this time...a widespread outbreak is not expected on 
any of these days. 


A front will sweep through the area behind the storms on Friday 
resulting in a pleasant weekend for all of north and central 
Texas. The GFS is quick to return moisture and develop more storms 
Sunday night as another upper level system and front moves through 
the plains. This seems too fast for the moisture return but will 
keep a 20 pop in the forecast for Sunday night.
