NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
640 PM CDT Monday Apr 20 2015 


Update... 
please see the 00z aviation discussion below. 


&& 


Aviation... 
thick middle and high level cloud cover continues to stream in from 
the west this evening. This cloud cover will remain intact through 
the overnight hours into tomorrow morning as winds transition to a 
more east and southeasterly direction. Models suggest MVFR low 
clouds will develop by late tomorrow morning or early afternoon 
and we/ll continue this trend in the latest forecast. We did opt 
to include a tempo group for the I-35 corridor during the 
afternoon hours for VFR skies as cloud bases temporarily lift. Low 
clouds likely to fill in after 22/00z across the region as low- 
level moisture increases. 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 252 PM CDT Monday Apr 20 2015/ 


Short term (tonight through Tuesday night)... 
cool surface ridge will give way later tonight into Tuesday as a 
surface low develops in the plains. Dewpoints remain low tonight 
allowing for one more cool night. Southerly winds return Tuesday 
to all areas allowing moisture to increase across south central 
Texas. This may lead to isolated showers Tuesday afternoon into 
Tuesday night as weak upward motion develops from a strengthening 
low level jet. However...warm middle level temperatures due to weak 
upper level ridging will inhibit deeper convection. The exception 
may be that upward motion is enhanced by orographic lift to 
develop isolated thunderstorms on the serranias del burro. Convective available potential energy 
around 1000 j/kg suggest some strong storms. However...steering 
vectors indicate they should stay near the higher terrain of the 
burros keeping them west of the Rio Grande with no impact to south 
central Texas. Significantly higher dewpoints bring a warmer more 
humid airmass Tuesday night. 


Long term (wednesday through monday)... 
an upper level trough along or just off the California coast is 
forecast to be in the process of undergoing development by 
Wednesday morning due to the interaction of several shortwaves. 
This trough remains along the coast on Wednesday and moves into 
the Desert Southwest on Thursday. Meanwhile...southerly lower 
level flow will maintain a humid airmass across south central 
Texas. The dryline is forecast to drift east into parts of the 
Edwards Plateau and Rio Grande Valley during the late afternoons 
on Wednesday and Thursday. Upward forcing and convergence along 
the dryline and orographic lift on the serranias del burro should 
weaken the convective inhibition to allow for thunderstorm 
development. Convective available potential energy in the 2000 to 4000 j/kg range and shear up to 
50 kts indicate isolated strong to severe storms are possible. 
Further to the east...weak upper level ridging and warm middle level 
temperatures should maintain at least some convective inhibition. 
However...there remains a potential for storms to form into 
clusters and move east across south central Texas. Although will 
mention severe potential in the severe weather potential statement...will not mention severe in 
the grids yet due to the uncertainty on convective inhibition 
remaining. The best chances for showers and thunderstorms occur 
later on Friday when the upper level trough moves out across the 
plains. This forces the dryline further to the east across south 
central Texas. Moisture convergence and upward forcing along the 
dryline should weaken the inhibition allowing showers and 
thunderstorms to develop. Forecast convective available potential energy similar to middle week 
indicate potential for strong to severe storms. As the upper 
trough moves into the Mississippi Valley early Saturday a Pacific 
cold front moves across our area. However...the dryline will have 
scoured most of the moisture with slight chances of showers and 
thunderstorms only in the east Friday night. Some uncertainty for 
Sunday into next Monday with the GFS showing another upper trough 
and cold front early Monday for a slight chance of showers while 
the European model (ecmwf) shows zonal flow and no trough/front. Will keep probability of precipitation out 
of forecast for now to await some consistency and consensus in the 
models.
