NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
337 am CDT Sat may 23 2015 


Discussion... 
dewpoints are creeping up across North Texas early this morning as 
a warm front move slowly north across the area. The boundary 
stretches roughly along or just north of the I-20 corridor and is 
expected to reach the Red River by midday. This is all in response 
to a strengthening Lee rockies surface cyclone...which itself has 
developed in response to a deep upper low over the 4-corners 
region. Water vapor imagery indicates a potent shortwave now 
rotating around the upper low across the Desert Southwest. 


Strong forcing from this shortwave has already begun to generate 
convection across eastern New Mexico and parts of southwest Texas. 
Showers and thunderstorms will likely spread east across west- 
central Texas this morning and begin to affect western counties of 
North Texas by midday. By that time...precipitable waters  will have jumped to 
just shy of two inches. Instability will be marginal today...but 
good lift associated with the initial shortwave combined with 
impressive moisture profiles should lead to scattered convection 
/containing many efficient rain-producing cells/ this afternoon. 
The Flash Flood Watch will begin area-wide today...though the best 
potential for convection will likely begin in the northwest where 
the strongest forcing resides. Cape of 1000-1500 j/kg during peak 
heating will result in a few severe storms with large hail and 
damaging winds. 


The upper low will remain nearly stationary this evening as a 
second shortwave moves east across Mexico into West Texas. This 
should generate another round of convection during the evening and 
overnight hours on top of areas which are already saturated...and 
will likely have received convection by this afternoon. Some 
high-res guidance suggests thunderstorms organizing into a line 
and progressing slowly east across the region overnight tonight. 
The slow eastward progression implies that thunderstorm cells will 
have the opportunity to train over saturated areas for prolonged 
periods of time...further supporting heavy rain potential and 
continued opportunities for flash flooding. Precipitation will 
eventually shift east of the region during the day Sunday as the 
upper low shifts northeast into the northern plains and the 
shortwave heads for the Ohio Valley. 


Whatever break we receive will be short lived...because another 
round of convection will transpire on Monday as another shortwave 
/which appears to currently reside in the Pacific northwest/ swings 
east across the Southern Plains. Higher levels of shear and 
instability will lead to a better chance of severe thunderstorms 
with this system. The system will move relatively fast...but 
localized heavy rain will still create additional flooding 
concerns for Memorial Day. Storms will likely organize upscale 
into a squall line and push east of the region Monday night or 
early Tuesday. 


Shortwave ridging should bring quieter weather to the area Tuesday 
and Wednesday...though we will continue to keep low probability of precipitation in place 
for widely scattered diurnal convection. This type of activity is 
usually disorganized and driven by daytime heating...but tends to 
be fairly easy to come by during a wet weather pattern. Showers 
and thunderstorms will become more numerous Thursday and Friday as 
yet another upper trough approaches the plains.

Aviation... 




For the 06z tafs...no significant changes made from the 00z 
tafs. 


Watching the position of the warm front will be critical during 
the early morning hours. IFR ceilings are likely to remain closely 
tied to the warm front...so if it lifts north faster or remains in 
place longer than expected...the duration of IFR ceilings will be 
affected appropriately. Removed IFR ceilings from kact as the warm 
front is north of the Airport at this time...any IFR ceilings are 
expected to be temporary as a result. 


Widespread precipitation is still expected to build over the 
region from west to east beginning tomorrow late afternoon. 


Cavanaugh 


../previous aviation discussion/... 
/issued 727 PM CDT Friday may 22 2015/ 


For the 00z tafs...timing the onset of low MVFR and IFR stratus 
returning to the region and then rain shower and thunderstorm 
chances over the next 24-36 hours are the primary forecast 
challenges. 


23z surface analysis indicated low-level moisture returning 
rapidly to the region from the Texas Gulf Coast northwest over 
west central Texas. This deep moisture return will result in cloud 
heights lowering from the 2 to 3 thousand foot range to 
approximately 800 feet above ground level tonight. These clouds are expected to 
move over area airports from the west or southwest to the east. 
Have low MVFR ceilings building in after 04z...then IFR ceilings 4 hours 
later. Will monitor upstream trends and amend the tafs if this 
timing looks like it will change. IFR ceilings are likely to hold 
until the late morning hours of Saturday. 


After noon on Saturday...large scale lift begins to increase over 
Texas from west to east...resulting in an increase in rain chances 
from Saturday afternoon through Saturday night. Scattered rain 
showers are possibly anytime on Saturday...with thunderstorms 
becoming more likely late Saturday afternoon. Widespread rain 
shower activity with embedded thunderstorms is likely at all area 
airports Saturday night. Did not place thunder in the forecast at 
this time because it looks like we will have many hours of 
precipitation with embedded thunderstorms possible. 


Did not want to advertise 10 to 12 hours of thunderstorms at this 
time...although this is a rare situation where this is actually 
possible. Any rain shower or thunderstorm activity Saturday night 
is expected to result in heavy rainfall and likely IFR 
visibilities. Went ahead with a mention of heavy rain in at the 
end of the dfw taf. Best window for widespread heavy rainfall at 
area taf sites appears to be just before midnight to 15z Sunday at 
this time. 


A widespread heavy rainfall event is likely across the region this 
weekend...so the tafs will likely be busy and amended frequently 
as we move into Saturday afternoon and evening.
