NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
1109 am CDT Thursday Oct 2 2014 


..there is a slight risk of severe weather this evening over Hill 
Country... 


Update... 
a cold front currently extends from the Pecos area northeast to 
west of Wichita Falls. This boundary will continue to push 
southeast through late tonight. An upper level trough digging 
southeastward from the Texas Panhandle will continue to push to 
the east while supporting deep convection later this afternoon 
and evening. As the front approaches The Hill Country area...and 
meets with the warm sector...early this evening...there is a 
potential for strong to severe storms to develop across The Hill 
Country...mainly along and north of a kerville to Wimberley to 
Giddings line. Main hazards will be damaging winds and large hail. 
Localized heavy rain is also possible. Once the frontal boundary 
enters the I-35 corridor...the severe weather treat diminishes and 
transition into a heavy rain event. Expect rainfall amounts of 1/2 
to one inch with isolated 2 inches. Weather conditions will 
improve overnight/early Friday with breezy northerly winds.

Previous discussion... /issued 653 am CDT Thursday Oct 2 2014/ 


Aviation... /12z taf update/ 
areas of MVFR ceilings will continue through around noon along I-35 
while drt could see a brief dip to IFR conditions through 15z. 
Cold front is expected to increase convective coverage around abia 
by 03z with the front expected a couple hours behind. Frontal 
timing is expected to be roughly 05z to 07z at Sat/ssf but with 
convective areas expected to broaden as they move south...will opt 
for the wind shift at 07z. Strong drying is expected to follow the 
front so will expect most conditions to bump up to VFR...even as 
scattered showers and thunderstorms linger behind the front. No 
convection is included for drt tafs...but isolated convection will 
be possible mainly from 00z through 06z. 


Previous discussion... /issued 419 am CDT Thursday Oct 2 2014/ 


Short term (today through friday)... 
morning surface observations reveal plenty of low cloud cover in 
place along with southerly winds and dew points generally in the 
70s. A few spots east of I-35 could see patchy morning fog...but 
given southerly winds of 5 to 10 miles per hour...suspect any fog will remain 
very light. Otherwise... another warm day is anticipated across 
south central Texas with high temperatures generally in the 90s. 
Record highs are not expected to be tied or broken...but we could 
approach the record of 97 degrees at San Antonio. Rain chances 
will remain fairly low through this afternoon across most areas. 
We/ll continue to mention a 20% chance for showers and storms 
across most areas today given strong surface heating and an 
increasing southwest flow aloft. We did opt to increase rain 
chances late this afternoon across Burnet and Llano counties as 
the hi-res models show convection initiating after 4 PM. As the 
evening progresses...rain chances will be on the increase as a 
cold front and upper level trough move across central and North 
Texas. Rain chances appear to remain highest for areas generally 
north of I-10 this evening and we have increased rain chances for 
this region. As the cold front continues to move southward after 
midnight...the upper level trough will quickly move east of the 
region. Despite the departing upper system...the models remain in 
good agreement showing a line of convection moving southeastward 
across the region. Given good model agreement...we have increased 
rain chances for areas east of I-35 after midnight tonight. There 
are some timing differences noted...with the hi-res arw/nmm 
showing a faster solution and the nam12 remaining slower. The 
latest sref guidance...which is between the above mentioned 
models... appears reasonable and we have generally followed it/S 
solution. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible... 
mainly this evening into early Friday morning for areas along and 
north of a Fredericksburg to Austin to Giddings line. The main 
concern with any severe thunderstorms will be damaging winds and 
hail. In addition...we could see some locally heavy rainfall. 
Locally heavy rain appears most favored for areas east of a 
Kerrville to Pearsall line. Rainfall amounts will generally 
average one quarter to one half inch...with isolated spots up to 2 
inches. Rain chances decrease on Friday as drier air moves in 
behind the cold front. We did keep a mention of morning showers 
and storms along and south of a Carrizo Springs to Hallettsville 
line to account for any lingering convection near the cold front. 


Long term (friday night through wednesday)... 
near to slightly below normal temperatures are expected Friday and 
Saturday. A warming trend begins on Sunday as southerly winds 
return and remain intact through the remainder of the forecast. 
Northwest flow aloft also continues into early next week before 
middle-level ridging builds into the region during the middle of the 
upcoming work week. Northwest flow aloft can be conducive for 
additional rainfall...but timing of the stronger middle-level 
shortwaves is difficult for the models to resolve. For now...we/ll 
limit the mention of precipitation to the coastal plains on 
Tuesday and Wednesday. We will need to monitor future model data 
for the possibility of convection on Monday for areas along and 
east of the I-35 corridor.
