NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas 
1120 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Aviation... 
an upper level trough currently making steady eastward progress 
across the Great Basin is still slated to bring an active round of 
convective weather to North Texas Thursday afternoon and 
evening. A cold front will accompany this system...with the front 
pushing across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex terminals 00-02z 
Thursday evening and then the Waco area 02-04z. 


For the overnight hours...30kt southerly low level jet winds 
should bring another layer of stratus overhead during the morning 
hours Thursday. We will continue indicating MVFR ceilings beginning at 
09z at kact then 11z in the metroplex. Otherwise...isolated 
elevated convection should remain northwest of area taf sites. 


Surface heating and boundary layer mixing will lead to improving 
conditions late Thursday morning...with the return of VFR by 
midday. Thursday afternoon...moisture and instability ahead of 
the front will be sufficient for thunderstorm development as lift 
from the upper trough overspreads the region. Activity will likely 
be scattered in nature in the metroplex and also in the Waco area 
late afternoon and early evening. We will indicate thunderstorms in the vicinity at the 
Dallas-Fort Worth area airports beginning at 22z and Waco at 23z. 
Storms should then solidify into a squall line just east of area 
taf sites as the system encounters deeper moisture. Northwest 
winds near 15 knots and VFR conditions will follow the passage of the 
cold front.

&& 


Update... 
scattered showers and storms that developed just west of the 
region on a weak dry line late this afternoon should continue to 
decrease in coverage as they move northeast. However...increasing 
large scale lift from the approaching western U.S. Trough may 
sustain a few storms during the late evening and overnight hours. 
Therefore...we will keep some 20 probability of precipitation in the northwest zones 
through the night. 


A fairly strong early fall cold front will continue to move south 
across the Central High plains tonight. Temperatures north of the front 
were in the upper 30s and lower 40s in many locations. The front 
should continue surging south across the High Plains with slower 
movement expected father east. Therefore...the front will change 
orientation a bit and this will delay frontal passage across North Texas 
until Thursday afternoon/evening. It still appears the best 
rain/storm chances will be along and east of I-35 Thursday 
afternoon and evening so we will make no changes to 2nd and 3rd 
period probability of precipitation at this time. 


The current forecast is in good shape so no update is needed at 
this time.

Previous discussion... /issued 346 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014/ 
afternoon satellite imagery shows an extensive cumulus field across the 
eastern half of Texas this afternoon indicative of ample low level 
moisture being pulled northward ahead of an approaching upper 
trough. This shortwave trough can be seen on water vapor imagery 
digging into the southwest U.S. And it will continue eastward 
overnight. In the immediate short term...our primary concern will 
be potential for convective development across the far western 
counties this evening. There is a thin band of cumulus that has 
developed along a diffuse dryline across west-central Texas. 
Temperatures have climbed into the middle and upper 90s across this 
region and inhibition is weakening. It is hard to tell whether 
there is any additional forcing for ascent being provided to the 
area from the approaching trough as Texas currently appears to be 
between systems. What is clear though is that forcing will begin 
to increase later tonight as the upper trough gets closer...so any 
activity that does develop might be able to sustain itself for a 
while. Went ahead and kept some 20 probability of precipitation across the far western 
counties to account for this. 


By tomorrow morning the western U.S. Trough will be approaching 
the Southern Plains. A surface low will be located across 
northwest Oklahoma and will quickly be moving to the northeast 
while a cold front begins to surge southward. The guidance has 
continued to support a slower arrival of the upper trough but 
appears to be consolidated around a midday to middle afternoon 
timeframe. This would be favorable for more widespread convection 
along the cold front as temperatures are likely to warm into the 
middle 90s across parts of North Texas...especially along and east of 
I-35. The tricky part for the 8 million or so people who live in 
North Texas and desperately want rain is exactly where the 
thunderstorms initiate along the cold front. High resolution 
guidance is very well clustered with initiation occurring between 
3 and 5 PM Thursday afternoon. The variance comes with a couple 
of models showing thunderstorms developing from Dallas eastward 
and others indicating that they will develop farther west. This 
forecast will favor a slightly farther west development based on 
the strong forcing coming in along the front during peak heating 
which should help weaken the cap quickly. Our current forecast 
will indicate thunderstorms developing in the middle afternoon along 
a line from near Gainesville southwest to Decatur and Weatherford. 
Initial activity will primarily remain north of I-20 but should 
quickly expand southward as the front moves east. All of this 
means that the western half of the metroplex and areas west of there 
could miss out on the more significant rainfall. Areas along and 
east of I-35 will have much better chances for rainfall. The front 
will continue east through the evening with showers and 
thunderstorms affecting primarily the eastern half of the County Warning Area 
through midnight before quickly coming to an end with frontal passage. 


Concerning severe weather potential...with the upper forcing 
coming in coincident with peak heating...an area of moderate 
instability will have developed along and ahead of the cold front. 
Deep layer shear of around 45 kts will be more than sufficient 
with instability around 2500 j/kg to support severe convection. 
Wind profiles become veered rather early in the event which is typical 
of frontal type convection...and this is likely to limit the 
overall tornado threat. The exception may be areas south of 
Interstate 20 where capping will be a little stronger and a discrete 
supercell or two may develop along or ahead of the cold front. 
Again...while wind profiles dont appear to be favorable...discrete 
supercells can quickly modify the local environment...so the potential 
needs to be monitored. The most likely severe threat will be large 
hail and damaging winds from squall line convection across the 
eastern half of the County Warning Area. 


Thunderstorms will come to an end Thursday night as the front 
clears North Texas. It wont be considerably colder behind the 
front but it will be much drier. Dewpoints will fall into the 30s 
by late Friday with temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. 
The coolest morning will be Saturday when the surface high is 
centered across the region. Temperatures will drop into the 40s 
and lower 50s with significant topographical effects due to near calm 
winds. The forecast will remain dry into next week although 
moisture will work back into the area by Monday and temperatures 
will warm back into the middle and upper 80s.
