    Scattered showers will continue to develop through the afternoon hours today...especially along and west of a Sherman to Rockwall to Leona line. With sufficient instability and modest amounts of wind shear...a few thunderstorms may develop...and some of these storms may become strong to severe. The main threats will be large hail...strong gusty winds...frequent cloud-to-ground lightning...and heavy rain. Otherwise...skies should range from partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
327 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Discussion... 
a shortwave trough continues to progress east across Texas and the 
Southern Plains this afternoon. Extensive cloudcover associated 
with this feature has limited additional thunderstorm development 
across the area for much of the late morning and afternoon. 
That said...locations southwest of the earlier activity /and 
outside of the thicker cloud cover/ are now experiencing 
convective initiation...and additional thunderstorms are expected 
to develop late afternoon and early evening as the atmosphere 
continues to destabilize. Though the best instability has remained 
mainly south of I-20...additional development will remain 
possible area-wide as cooler air aloft associated with the 
shortwave aids in additional destabilization. We will keep slight 
chance probability of precipitation across the northern half of the region this evening 
with chance probability of precipitation across the south. All activity should move east 
of the area around or shortly after midnight as the system 
accelerates off to the northeast. 


An upper trough dropping southeast across the West Coast will move 
east across the central part of the Continental U.S. Late Thursday into 
Friday. This will force a cold front south through North Texas 
Friday. Ahead of the system...a dryline will surge east to near the 
I-35 corridor Thursday afternoon. Good instability is being 
advertised in the vicinity of the dryline...but it looks like a 
strong cap will preclude convective initiation for the majority of 
the region. We will keep some 20 probability of precipitation along I-35 north of I-20 
Thursday afternoon where a low probability for storm development 
will exist. Low to middle 90s temperatures are likely Thursday 
afternoon across the western third of the area where veered winds 
and dry air will be in place. 


The fast moving front will provide focus for scattered showers 
and thunderstorms Friday across the southeastern half of North 
Texas. Conditions across the northwestern half will likely remain 
too dry for precipitation associated with the front. Strong north 
winds will usher in seasonably cool air Friday and Saturday 
behind the front. 


Southwesterly flow will develop aloft Saturday night and Sunday 
as a larger scale trough deepens along the West Coast. Increasing 
isentropic lift above the cool airmass at the surface will 
generate showers and isolated thunderstorms late Saturday through 
Sunday across much of the region. Return flow will increase at the 
surface Monday as cyclogenesis intensifies in Lee of The Rockies. 
This will place North Texas back in the warm sector for most of 
next week in advance of the deepening West Coast trough. Chances 
of mainly afternoon thunderstorms will occur Monday through much 
of next week as subtle disturbances pass overhead in the southwest 
flow aloft. Shear and instability will be sufficient for some of 
these storms to become severe each afternoon and evening...and we 
will get a better look at the forecast elements as we head 
through Easter weekend. Temperatures next week will remain about 
10 degrees above normal with lows in the 60s and highs generally 
in the 80s.

Aviation... 
/issued 1231 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015/ 
the MVFR ceilings in the area are generally lifting to VFR or are 
scattering out. The airmass is only very weakly capped and with 
continued heating should be uncapped and moderately unstable soon. 
As a shortwave tracks through the region this afternoon and 
evening...this will ignite scattered convection in the area. 
Short-term hi-res guidance continues to focus in on the 21-01z 
window for storms at the taf sites...and we have thunderstorms in the vicinity in the 
forecast for that time. Will update tafs if radar trends begin to 
indicate that storms will directly impact taf sites. 


Otherwise MVFR ceilings will arrive late tonight around 5-6z and 
persist into Thursday morning. South winds will prevail at 10-20kt 
with higher gusts. 


Will leave thunder out of tafs Thursday at dfw as the probability 
that the cap will break and a storm will impact dfw is less than 
20 percent...but we will continue to monitor this potential 
closely.
