    A line of strong to severe thunderstorms will continue to move towards the northeast at around 35 to 40 mph. The main hazards with this line of thunderstorms will be damaging straight line winds...and perhaps quarter sized hail. Heavy rain and a brief tornado will also be possible. Additional showers and thunderstorms will also develop ahead of the main line along the Highway 281 corridor. Otherwise...expect mostly to partly cloudy skies across much of north and central Texas. Temperatures will climb into the mid 70s and low 80s. Additional thunderstorm development will be possible through the afternoon hours. These thunderstorms will likely become severe and will be capable of producing large hail...destructive winds and a few tornadoes. Heavy rain will also likely result in flash flooding.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1005 am CDT Monday may 25 2015 


Update... 


We/re issuing a quick middle morning update to adjust probability of precipitation upward for 
most locations. The mesoscale convective system/squall line will move across most areas 
west of I-35 by noon time and through the remainder of the County Warning Area 
during the afternoon hours. As stated in previous 
discussions...the atmospheric instability parameters across all 
of north central Texas are high and all forms of severe weather are 
expected. 12z forward sounding has SBCAPE of 3100 j/kg and steep middle 
level lapse rate. Although a cap is present...it will be overtaken 
around midday. Very large hail and widespread damaging winds are 
likely. Discrete cells out ahead of the system will likely 
develop strong rotating updrafts that will lead to some tornadoes. 
Flash flooding could become a problem if rainfall comes down very 
hard and fast...especially in urban areas. 75 


&& 


Aviation... 
/issued 654 am CDT Monday may 25 2015/ 
/12z tafs/ 


Challenges are similar to previous days regarding timing flight 
conditions each morning and overnight...along with convective 
trends. 


The next shortwave disturbance aloft is now lifting over SW Texas 
as evident by the increasing strong-severe thunderstorms and rain from kmaf to kdrt 
at sunrise. High res models agree on a linear or qlcs type of 
complex driven by large-scale ascent and speed of the progressive 
shortwave. Have only made minor tweaks to timing convection into 
the terminals in the 17z-18z time frame with best window for 
IFR/thunderstorms and rain conditions west/heavy rain occurring through 21z-22z. The 
longer window is in case secondary development occurs on a surging 
drying into western North Texas by middle afternoon. 


MVFR conditions will prevail with tempo IFR/-dz through middle morning. 
As lift and mixing increase after 18z...expect prevailing low VFR 
with occasional MVFR with thunderstorms and rain. VFR will hold on through at least 
middle evening before MVFR arrives back in around midnight. More IFR 
possible just before daybreak Tuesday. 


South-southeast winds 10-15 kts winds will prevail through the forecast...with 
occasional variable higher wind gusts in and near convection this 
afternoon. 05/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 326 am CDT Monday may 25 2015/ 
a shortwave trough currently near El Paso is prognosticated to move east 
into central Texas during the day today...providing our next 
opportunity for convective weather following a short reprieve 
overnight. Strong ascent will spread east into the central part of 
the state over the next few hours...which should lead to shower 
and thunderstorm development west of our County Warning Area. Hi-res model data 
suggests that this activity will develop east into our western 
counties this afternoon. The time of day should ensure maximum 
instability as lift spreads overhead later today. SBCAPE in the 
range of 2000-4000 j/kg will be sufficient when combined with 
marginal bulk shear values to generate strong to severe storms 
this afternoon...with large hail...damaging winds and a few 
tornadoes all possible. 


Moisture profiles are not as impressive as what we experienced 
during the Saturday night/Sunday event. However...respectable 
precipitable waters  of around 1.5 inches will still be plenty high for locally 
heavy rain...and the Flash Flood Watch will remain in effect 
through this evening. Fortunately...this system is pretty 
progressive and should accelerate off to the northeast during the 
evening hours...ending precipitation chances from west to east 
tonight. 


The latest model projections indicate that a subtle upper trough 
will linger overhead Tuesday following the exit of today/S fast 
moving shortwave. This pattern will set US up with the potential 
for more severe weather Tuesday afternoon and evening. Good 
surface heating is expected to occur area-wide as a dryline 
surges east near the western County Warning Area border. We have gone with highs 
around 90 across the west and the middle 80s elsewhere. Overall 
forcing associated with the trough will be fairly weak...so 
thunderstorm coverage may not become particularly high. 
However...good moisture and impressive instability values will 
ensure that just about any storm which develops will become 
severe. For now we will keep 30 probability of precipitation over the west and slight 
chance elsewhere. 


A shortwave ridge will develop overhead on Wednesday as the 
trough shifts east of the region...bringing a lull in 
precipitation chances midweek. Good moisture and strong lift will 
bring rain chances back to the region Thursday and Friday as yet 
another upper trough propagates east from the West Coast into 
West Texas. This trough will then slow down...broaden and linger 
across the Southern Plains...providing a good chance of showers 
and storms through the weekend...and possibly even into next 
Monday. Another break in the precipitation looks possible Tuesday 
and Wednesday of next week as the upper trough shifts east and an 
upper ridge develops overhead. 30
