NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
1256 am CDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Aviation.../06z taf cycle/ 


VFR conditions are ongoing as of 06z across terminals but MVFR 
stratus has begun to develop across The Hill Country and southern 
Edwards Plateau. This pattern will be similar to last night with 
eventual expansion towards kdrt through the overnight but likely 
remaining out of ksat/kssf until 11-14z. Kaus could also go MVFR 
during that time frame and placed tempo group from 11-14z as well. 
Low stratus till mix out through middle to late morning and improve to 
VFR. Less rain showers/thunderstorms and rain coverage expected Thursday than Wednesday and 
have opted not to include any weather mention in tafs. There will be 
a small chance (20%) of light rain showers near ksat/kssf 18-23z. South 
surface winds will be less than 10 knots overnight then pick up to 15 
knots by the afternoon with some gusts near 20 knots. Ceilings look to fall a bit 
faster Thursday night into early Friday as IFR/MVFR appear likely 
for ksat/kssf/kaus as low-level moisutre plume moves in.

Previous discussion... /issued 736 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015/ 


Update... 
updated the forecast to remove mention of rain for the rest of 
tonight. Boundary has moved well north of the forecast area and we 
should remain dry. Also made minor adjustments to the hourly grids 
based on current trends. 


Previous discussion... /issued 646 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015/ 


Aviation discussion...for 00z taf package... 
towering cumulus and thunderstorms and rain has dissipated late this afternoon after the passage 
of a boundary across all the terminals from earlier. This has 
resulted in a shift to southerly winds in the 10-12 knots range and 
VFR ceilings. Expect this to last most of the night and only broken MVFR 
ceilings to briefly return in the morning hours tomorrow for the i35 
terminals. Looks like kdrt may see the longest period of MVFR in 
the morning...of about 6 hours...as models indicate better 
moisture along the Rio Grande Valley. 


Previous discussion... /issued 249 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015/ 


Short term (tonight through Thursday night)... 
the persistent trough over the area has produced scattered 
showers and thunderstorms again this afternoon. Gusty winds to 50 
miles per hour and rainfall amounts up to 1 inch in an hour are possible with 
some of the stronger storms. This line of storms is moving into a 
much more unfavorable environment north of I-10...so we expect 
the storms to die out over The Hill Country and rolling plains 
east of Austin by 7 PM or so. Otherwise...look for slow partial 
clearing by late evening...then some return of low clouds toward 
daybreak. 


Thursday will have even lower probability of precipitation as the upper level ridge builds 
over the south Central Plains. We expect storms to stay generally 
south of I-10 and be more isolated in nature. Temperatures will also 
begin a slow climb with less cloud cover and storm coverage. 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
the upper level ridge builds a bit more on Friday...before a 
weakness brings another chance for isolated to scattered 
convection both Saturday and Sunday. Quantitative precipitation forecast should be relatively 
light with these storms...but since it/S a Holiday weekend...the 
threat of lightning and winds to 50 miles per hour will be emphasized. 


Starting with Monday...the upper level ridge builds in strong and 
centers over Texas. High temperatures will surge up to near to 
slightly above normal...with the Rio Grande plains flirting with 
100 by the middle of next week...with middle to upper 90s over the 
rest of the area. The upper level ridge should also suppress 
convection...so we have no probability of precipitation at this time...but there is a one 
in 20 chance of an mesoscale convective system forming over southwest Oklahoma or North 
Texas and propagating south into the northern part of our area 
with favorable middle and upper level northwesterly flow.
