NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
529 am CST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Aviation discussion...for 12z taf package... 
scattered to potentially widespread thunderstorms will be possible 
for mainly the i35 corridor terminals throughout much of the taf 
period. Short term models suggest that storm development will 
occur late morning in the vicinity of all terminals but the 
majority of the development should be about 50 miles west of the 
i35 corridor and east. 


Beginning 18z and lasting through 03z...potentially severe 
thunderstorms will impact terminals off and on. Included +tsra 
with IFR visible to encompass the main impacts to the terminals. Ceilings 
should remain at MVFR levels during the day but may dip to IFR 
during the more significant storms. Expect these impacts to exit 
quickly from the area after 03z. Then VFR should prevail during 
the remainder of the period. 


Note for kdrt...models suggest a second round of thunderstorms and rain to develop 
in the vicinity near 00z. This is a recent but consistent 
development in the models so included prob30 mention to account 
for this.

Previous discussion... /issued 342 am CST Sat Nov 22 2014/ 


Short term (today through sunday)... 
light shower activity remains scattered around the area in 
response to continued weak lift associated with the low-level jet. 
The jet is strongest across the central and western zones and this 
is where the highest concentration of activity is located. The 
potent upper level low is currently located over northern Mexico 
and it continues to move east. The large scale forcing for ascent 
can easily be seen on infrared/WV satellite imagery at the present time. 
The forcing is shown by the increasing middle-high level clouds that 
are overspreading West Texas. The main upper forcing should arrive 
to south central Texas later this morning and continue through the 
afternoon and evening hours. Until the main upper focus for lift 
arrives...we should only continue to see this isolated to 
scattered shower activity with perhaps an isolated thunderstorm. 


Thunderstorms will most likely begin to increase in coverage in 
the middle to late morning hours as the upper lift arrives. Initially 
there will be about 1500 j/kg of cape across the western half of 
the County Warning Area with 30-35 knots of 0-6 km shear. Cape values will drop 
off to 1000 j/kg or less across the eastern zones. The initial 
development of storms could lead to weak supercells in the western 
half of the County Warning Area in the area of best instability. However...once 
activity becomes more widespread this afternoon...there may end up 
being too much activity to realize the peak cape values. High-res 
guidance is consistently showing a large area of precipitation over the 
County Warning Area that moves from west to east and out of the County Warning Area by 03z. The 
sherb parameter which is decent in picking up severe potential for 
these Low Cape/high shear environments /eastern zones/ is less 
than what was forecasted yesterday...but is still near the 
threshold to support the notion for some possible severe wind 
gusts out of any line segments which form within the large mass of 
thunderstorms. Current thinking is that initially...some 
thunderstorms could produce marginally severe hail mainly across 
the western half of the area during the late morning and into the 
early afternoon. Then...some marginally severe wind gusts would 
be the main Mode of severe convection from any possible line 
segments in the eastern zones. The risk for tornadoes is non- 
zero...but low with the best potential being in the southeast 
zones...where the best low-level shear is located. 


Precipitable water values will rise up to 1.5 inches across the eastern and 
northern zones. This is about 2 Standard deviations above normal 
for this time of the year. Therefore...we could see locally heavy 
rainfall...mainly across these mentioned areas. Wpc day 1 quantitative precipitation forecast 
values range from near 1/4 of an inch near the Rio Grande to near 
2 inches in our northern zones. This seems reasonable...but some 
isolated locations could receive up to 4 inches of rain. 


All activity is expected to be east of the area by 3z or 9 PM. 
West winds at the surface will continue on Sunday giving US a 
downslope component from west to east. This usually leads to warm 
temperatures and highs Sunday will reach the middle 70s to near 80 
degrees. 


Long term (sunday night through friday)... 
the weather in the extended is expected to be fairly quiet. A weak 
front will move through the area overnight Sunday. This front is in 
response to an upper level trough moving through the plains. This 
front will be dry as moisture will remain shunted off to the east. 
The rest of the week will remain dry and the next front should 
move into the area around Friday. The weather for Thanksgiving 
should be pretty seasonal with highs in the 60s and lows in the 
30s/40s.
