NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
543 PM CST Wednesday Dec 17 2014 


Aviation... 
moisture continues to stream north across the region this evening. 
Light drizzle/rain is expected overnight and fog has begun to form 
and will prevail across the region by 06z. MVFR ceilings will become 
IFR between 03z east and 07z west. Should begin to see slow 
improvement in ceilings and visibilities between 15z-17z with VFR conditions 
returning 18z-20z. Could see a few rain showers at any time on Thursday. 
With the timing and location issues that exist will not include 
in the forecast at this time. For the 30 hour terminals 
(kaus/ksat) have included rain showers/thunderstorms and rain after 19/01z due to increasing 
coverage across the region and back down to MVFR conditions.

Previous discussion... /issued 341 PM CST Wednesday Dec 17 2014/ 


Short term (tonight through Thursday night)... 
late afternoon radar imagery shows a line of showers and 
thunderstorms along and east of I-35 north of San Marcos. This line 
of convection is gradually decreasing...but we still expect 
additional activity to develop this afternoon and evening. We/ll 
continue to mention thunderstorms through this evening as some 
elevated instability is still present. We should see a gradual 
decrease in showers after midnight for areas west of I-35... with 
scattered showers continuing east of I-35. Patchy fog will likely 
develop across most of the region tonight...especially over the 
western Hill Country and southern Edwards Plateau. The sref and 
hi-res nmm and arw show better potential for fog development and 
lower visibilities across the mentioned region. Fog will continue 
into Thursday morning...then begin to dissipate in the afternoon. 
Rain chances will continue on Thursday for areas along and east of 
I-35 as an upper level shortwave trough moves into northern Mexico. 
Beginning Thursday night...the pattern becomes more active across 
south central Texas as a surface low develops over deep south Texas. 
This will set up a low-level baroclinic zone roughly along a Laredo 
to Victoria line. We can expect an increase in low-level moisture 
Thursday night as the upper level shortwave trough over Mexico moves 
in from the west. Large scale forcing for ascent arrives late 
Thursday night and showers and thunderstorms will become more 
widespread after midnight. We/ll continue to mention the possibility 
of locally heavy rainfall for areas generally along and east of 
I-35. Can/T completely rule out a strong storm or two across the 
region as well. Given the elevated (not rooted in the boundary 
layer) nature of these storms...hail will be the primary concern. 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
showers and storms will be ongoing across much of the region Friday 
morning. The southern edge of an upper level trough will move east 
of the region throughout the day and this will bring a decrease in 
precipitation chances. We/ll continue to mention a good chance for 
rain across most areas Friday morning...then show a decrease in rain 
chances during the afternoon. Event rainfall totals are expected to 
remain in the 1 to 2 inch range for areas east of Highway 281. We 
could see some isolated totals up to 3 inches east of I-35 as this 
area will remain in closer proximitiy to the moist axis along the 
coast. A dry forecast is in store Friday night as northerly winds 
bring drier air to the region. Dry and cool conditions continue this 
weekend with continued northerly flow in the low-levels. We do 
expect another upper level trough to move into Texas on Sunday. At 
this time...we Don/T expect any precipitation with this trough as 
moisture will be lacking. Later shifts may need to monitor the 
coastal plains for light shower activity on Monday...but confidence 
is too low to warrant a mention in the forecast at this time. 
Temperatures briefly rebound to near normal on Monday before a 
cold front moves through on Tuesday. Dry and cool conditions are 
expected on Wednesday.
