NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
742 am CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Aviation... 


For the 12z tafs...the primary forecast concerns for the tafs are 
the timing of a south to north wind shift this morning associated 
with a cold front...and thunderstorm chances/timing. 


Model guidance is struggling with the timing of the frontal 
boundary this morning. The front was located near a Denton to 
Granbury to Brownwood line as of 7am/12z. The feature that was 
holding the front back from the metroplex taf sites was a surface 
low that was located just southwest of Fort Worth at 12z. The 
surface low has been slow to move this morning...but is expected 
to slide east...to the south of the taf sites through 15z. This 
should bring surface winds around to the east...and then northwest 
as the surface low moves east allowing the cold front to move 
across the metroplex. 


Continue to track thunderstorms from the Red River south towards 
the metroplex...but confidence in these storms holding together is 
not 100 percent. As a result...went ahead with thunderstorms in the vicinity in the dfw 
area tafs through 15z...simply extrapolating the slow southerly 
progress of the Red River storms. Will have to amend the tafs and 
possibly issue an Airport weather warning as this line of showers 
and storms gets closer to the dfw area. Lightning activity has 
been isolated in this line so far...so only occasional strikes are 
expected if this line holds together into the metroplex. 


Behind the front and line of storms...MVFR ceilings are expected 
through early this afternoon...climbing to VFR levels during the 
peak heating hours of the day. Dry air aloft should keep VFR 
conditions in place at all area taf sites for the remainder of the 
forecast period.

Previous discussion... /issued 339 am CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014/ 
the shortwave embedded in the upper level pattern that was located 
over southern Colorado yesterday has pushed into North Texas 
during the overnight hours and is easily visible via water vapor 
imagery. Based on observations...the surface low appears to be 
located just southwest of the dfw metroplex near Granbury as of 
08z...with the associated cold front draped southwestward from the 
low. This system brought in a mesoscale convective complex during 
the overnight hours that resulted in heavy rain for our Red River 
counties and this threat will continue through the morning for 
areas northeast of a Bowie...to Dallas...to Palestine line. 
Localized flooding has already been reported and will continue to 
be a threat for the next few hours. 


While most areas of the County Warning Area will see less than a quarter 
of an inch of rainfall...areas northeast of the dfw metropolitan may see 
amounts over an inch...with locally higher amounts possible. 
Precipitable water amounts in this area will be over 2 inches and 
warm cloud depths are thick...suggesting warm rain processes 
dominating the area. 


This convective activity is expected to continue to move southeast 
across the County Warning Area this morning and should end from northwest to 
southeast. High resolution model guidance suggests a rapid end to 
the precipitation for our area with rainfall expected to end by 
this evening. The low appears to be moving rather quickly off to the 
southeast and the pendant cold front dragging from it will 
continue to push through the area today. Behind the front...winds will 
become northerly and conditions will begin to dry out. Weak north 
winds will continue into the weekend. 


Once this system moves out of the area by Friday...temperatures will 
be slow to climb as the area remains under northwest flow aloft 
through most of the weekend. Cold air advection and lingering cloud 
cover will keep temperatures in the 80s for most of the area on 
Friday. The cloud cover should diminish this weekend and highs will 
range from the middle 80s to low 90s as weak north winds remain in 
place over the area. 


The ridge currently over the Desert Southwest will slowly build 
over the coming days and edge closer to north and central Texas 
however...we should stay on the periphery through much of next week. 
This will allow for a gradual warming trend and could introduce 
additional rain chances later in the week...should upper level 
disturbances ride around the ridge and traverse close to North 
Texas. Highs in the 90s will be expected through midweek and the 
return of southerly flow on Tuesday will help accelerate the 
warming trend but triple digits are not expected.
