NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
501 PM CDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Update... 
a quick update has been done to add the new Tornado Watch 121. 
Have also lowered probability of precipitation across the area east of the I-35 corridor 
for the early evening hours.

Aviation... 


/issued 1256 PM CDT sun Apr 26 2015/ 
the next 24 hours will be a very active period for the north and 
central Texas taf sites with conditions favorable for numerous 
showers and thunderstorms...some of which will be severe. 


Convection is ongoing southwest of metroplex taf sites and just 
to the west of Waco. This activity is elevated...and based around 
10kft. Steep lapse rates through the column are likely 
contributing to turbulence in this area as well. Lightning will be 
the primary concern as this activity continues to push towards the 
metroplex this afternoon. 


Later this afternoon and evening...severe thunderstorms are 
expected to develop along the dryline as surface based instability 
increases due to strong low-level moisture advection. It appears 
the greatest threat for severe storms near the metroplex will 
occur after 02z. High resolution guidance is keying in on an area 
along a stalled frontal boundary which would be favorable for a 
strong linear convective system to develop and ride the boundary 
eastward toward the metroplex taf sites around midnight. This 
solution is far from certain...but there is decent agreement from 
short term guidance which lends credence to this scenario. The 
main threat with this solution would be very strong winds...but 
all types of severe weather would still be possible in this 
favorable environment. 


The line of storms being advertised along the stationary boundary 
will likely be too far north to impact the Waco taf site. 
However... Waco will be threatened by discrete supercells 
developing late this afternoon and early evening along and ahead 
of the dryline. Again...all types of severe weather will be 
possible late this afternoon and evening in central Texas. 


After storms clear out early on Monday morning...some borderline 
IFR/MVFR ceilings will be possible in the wake of the widespread 
convection. Have kept taf sites on the low end of MVFR for now 
since there is much uncertainty on the Post-convective environment 
tomorrow.

Previous discussion... /issued 232 PM CDT sun Apr 26 2015/ 


With the focus of the forecast on our short term severe weather 
evolution...will keep the discussion with regards to the remainder 
of the forecast brief. The discussion regarding the evolution of 
severe storms today and tonight remains mostly valid still at 2 
PM...so left the early afternoon update appended below. 


Changes from the previous update for today...the 18z subjective 
surface analysis indicated surface cyclogenesis was occurring 
farther north than what models were indicating this morning. If 
the surface low does not develop farther south this 
afternoon...the primary ingredients for discrete supercell 
thunderstorms may move north towards the dfw metroplex this 
evening. The surface low is expected to deepen through 00z and the 
strongest forcing and combination of ingredients for supercells 
will exist at that time as a result. The best window for discrete 
supercell development within the County Warning Area...east of the surface low 
still appears to be on track for the 5 PM to 10 PM time frame. 
Will continue to watch the evolution of the surface low closely 
this afternoon because if it sets up farther north...the biggest 
threat for discrete supercells may move away from central Texas 
and towards the dfw area. Will have to just see what happens at 
this point. Another Tornado Watch is likely to be issued late this 
afternoon for much of north and central Texas. While there may not 
be many storms...the storms that do develop are expected to pose a 
very high threat of severe weather. Conditions still look 
favorable for very large hail...damaging winds and tornadoes 
wherever supercells develop. 


A squall line still looks likely to develop across far southwest 
Oklahoma or across northwest Texas this evening. This squall line 
still looks like it will be very organized and pose a widespread 
threat for damaging winds as it moves southeast across North Texas 
late this evening and overnight. 


The threat for flooding appears to be unchanged at this time. Will 
continue to monitor the threat for training storms through 
tonight...however confidence is not high enough to issue a Flash 
Flood Watch at this time. 


Monday...thunderstorms are very likely across north and central 
Texas Monday afternoon...however the Mode and overall threat for 
severe weather is very uncertain at this time. If a large squall 
line/derecho moves southeast across North Texas overnight...it may 
leave a strong outflow boundary that will significantly alter the 
thermodynamic environment for Monday. Until we know what happens 
with storms through tonight...it will be difficult to identify the 
exact threat for severe storms on Monday. There will be strong 
lift as the upper trough pulls east over the Southern Plains...and 
there will be moisture...so overall probability of precipitation are quite high in the 50 
to 70 percent chance range. There will probably be a sufficient 
amount of wind shear to support organized storms tomorrow 
afternoon...however conditions near the surface may be cool and 
cloud cover may inhibit surface based instability for much of the 
day tomorrow. At this time...think that the locations with the 
best chance for severe storms tomorrow afternoon will tend to be 
south of Interstate 20 as the overnight squall line is most likely 
along and north of I-20. We will obviously have to reevaluate the 
thermodynamic environment tomorrow morning after the squall line 
has moved east of the County Warning Area. 


Tuesday...the upper trough/low is expected to be over North 
Texas...centered over the Red River. There is a chance of seeing 
some storms right in the middle of the upper low as the cold air 
aloft will help destabilize the environment...however skies will 
likely be overcast...so surface based storms appear to be very 
unlikely at this time. Scattered elevated showers and 
thunderstorms are likely near the center of the upper low...so 
have the highest probability of precipitation near the Red River...and lowest probability of precipitation across 
central Texas on Tuesday. 


Wednesday through Friday...upper level ridging is expected to 
result in a warming trend under mostly clear skies for the 
remainder of the week.
