NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
1138 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Aviation... 
cold front continues to move south tonight and convection now 
developing along and to the west of I-35 across the northern 
portions of The Hill Country. As the front moves south should see 
MVFR conditions develop. Best chances for convection remain along 
and to the west of I-35. The showers and isolated thunderstorms 
will move S/southeast across the region through sunrise. Current thinking 
is that the front will move through all terminals by 12z. After 
frontal passage will see winds shift to the north near 10 knots. As the 
drier air moves in...gusty north winds increase and conditions 
should improve quickly from north to south. Winds after 14z will 
likely gust to near 25 knots into the late afternoon. By 23z-01z 
northerly winds decrease to 10 knots or less.

Update... /pops...severe potential lowered/ 
in following the evening surface analysis...radar trends and model 
winds versus the radar profile winds...it appears less likely the 
higher res models will depict a likely category area of rain over 
the area. 


Looking at the winds from the boundary layer to around 5000 
feet...there is more of a northerly component to suggest less 
moisture availability and a weaker and more shallow layer for the 
nocturnal low level wind enhancement to increase probability of precipitation. Radar 
trends show a late evening weakening which is somewhat reflected 
in the model data...so an early morning increase in coverage is 
still expected. Quantitative precipitation forecast is also tapered to account for lower precipitable water 
values shown in the Storm Prediction Center mesoscale analysis than is shown in the higher 
res model forecasts. The one trend that could still suggest more 
rain potential is that the front is running a bit slow which 
should allow for more time for the nocturnal winds to import more 
low level moisture. Probability of precipitation were lowered for this evening and for the 
peak overnight period from 06z-12z...but were expanded slightly 
northward for after daybreak to around 15z. Will back away from 
strong storm wording in the severe weather potential statement as the recent Storm Prediction Center update has done 
the same. 


Temperatures appear to be on track still...but some adjustments 
were made for dew points and winds for slowing the front down an 
hour or two. 


Previous discussion... /issued 622 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014/ 


Aviation... 
main concerns this forecast period will be the cold front tonight 
and convection that develops along the front. At this time looks 
like the best chances for convection will be I-35 and points to 
the west. Will see MVFR cloud development between 06z-08z at all 
terminals. Front should begin to impact the terminals between 
08z-11z with showers and thunderstorms as the front moves through. 
Currently have showers mentioned in all tafs but may need to 
update this evening or next forecast to include thunderstorms 
based on radar trends. Winds ahead of the front will be light and 
variable with a wind shift to the north following frontal passage. 
After 14z-15z Friday...gusty north winds are expected with gusts to 
near 25 knots. With the influx of drier air will see conditions 
improve rapidly from north to south. After 23z will see northerly 
winds decrease to 10 knots or less. 


Previous discussion... /issued 349 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014/ 


Short term (tonight through Friday night)...cold front was 
entering North Texas middle afternoon...with isolated showers 
developing ahead of it. Models in relatively good agreement with 
convection becoming more scattered this evening and overnight 
along and west of I-35 across our County Warning Area as the front encounters 
decent pool of moisture up to 700 mb and very weak middle level 
forcing from shortwave moves into area. Some slight timing 
differences among the hi resolution models...but generally 
northern areas of the County Warning Area 03z-09z and southern and western areas 
of the County Warning Area 06z-12z...with again favored areas along and west of 
I-35. Marginal shear and elevated cape values could yield a 
stronger storm or two...with hail and straight-line wind being 
the risks. 


Drier air cooler air will filter into the region during the day on 
Friday from northeast to southwest...with clearing skies. Much 
cooler across south-central Texas Friday night into Saturday 
morning...with lows into the 40s across most locations...low 50s 
along the Rio Grande...and possibly a few upper 30s across the 
northern Hill Country. 


Long term (saturday through thursday)...dry and fall-like 
conditions on Saturday...the first day of November. Highs in the 
middle and upper 60s across northern areas...and upper 60s to low 70s 
south. 


Return flow sets up late Saturday night and Sunday...with clouds 
returning quickly across central and western areas and moderating 
temperatures Sunday and Sunday night. 


It continues to be a challenging forecast next week. A deep upper 
level trough will develop trough will dig into the Desert Southwest 
and Baja California California Sunday night into Monday. The southerly flow 
will strengthen on Monday ahead of the system...with a few warm 
air advection streamer showers possible. 


Discrepancies between the European model (ecmwf) and GFS still exist in the 
handling of this trough as it moves east Tuesday and Wednesday. 
The 12z European model (ecmwf) has sped the timing of the trough up slightly...delaying 
when the upper level low cuts off in the base of the trough and 
cutting it off farther east across West Texas by 00z Thursday. The 12z 
GFS is still slightly more progressive with the deep trough axis 
coming out into West Texas and northern Mexico Tuesday...with the 
GFS indicating the upper level trough axis east of the region by 
00z Thursday. Thus the GFS is faster with the deep...large scale 
forcing coming across the region...and indicates the cold front 
through the most of the area by 00z Wednesday...with the GFS just 
showing the front just entering the area at this time. 


Regardless of timing...strong synoptic scale forcing...and deep 
tap of moisture...from the Gulf in the low levels and Pacific in 
the middle and upper levels...should generate good chances for 
widespread rainfall over the region. Due to timing differences 
have showed the higher probability of precipitation Tuesday through Wednesday until models 
come into better agreement with upper pattern. Raised probability of precipitation another 
10 percent from previous package...with most areas in the likely 
category at some point Tuesday through Wednesday. Exact details on 
timing and quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are still to be determined. Stay tuned.
