Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
632 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Aviation discussion...for 12z taf period... 
seeing some light rain exiting east of the ksat/kssf terminals 
this morning. Still could see a light sprinkle or two in the 
vicinity for the first hour or so of the taf period but not enough 
to impact categories. Isolated to scattered showers possible this 
today across the plateau which may impact the kaus terminal off 
and on today. Included vcsh at kaus as a result. Not expecting any 
changes from VFR today but amendments may be necessary based 
off radar trends. 


MVFR ceilings could impact the ksat/kssf terminals tomorrow morning as 
low level winds will be out of the southeast with favorable low 
level moisture.

Previous discussion... /issued 226 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015/ 


Short term (today through tonight)...a weak upper level 
disturbance has generated light rain showers across the central 
part of the County Warning Area overnight. It appears that this feature will have 
enough moisture to produce some light rain showers again today 
across mainly the plateau and perhaps as far east as the Austin 
area. At least some 250 mb lift will also help develop these 
showers. However...low level moisture profiles are still quite 
dry...especially during the afternoon hours which may prohibit 
much measurable rainfall from reaching the surface. So would 
expect the radar today to look a bit worse than what is actually 
being seen at the surface. Did decide to include slight chance 
probability of precipitation for the area that looks to be under the best moisture today 
per the GFS/NAM/rap solutions. Also...WRF/hrrr/rap/NAM all produce 
at least some isolated showers today in this same area. If it 
werent for the dry air in the lower levels...would probably go for 
low end chance probability of precipitation. But confidence just isnt quite high enough 
for more than spotty measurable rainfall today. 


Decided to go a bit on the cool side on the maximum T grid today with 
the cloud cover and potential for light rain showers. May have been 
a bit overdone on the plateau but the deviation from populated top 
performing guidance wasnt more than a degree or two. May end up 
working out well. Rain coverage should diminish after dark and skies 
should clear a bit before some morning stratus develops along the 
i35 corridor and east. 


Long term (monday through saturday)...on Monday the elongated upper 
level low will stretch from from Arkansas southwest into deep 
south Texas. Moisture beneath and wrapped around back side of the 
low could produce some isolated...elevated showers during the day 
on Monday across the County Warning Area...but the better coverage and probability of precipitation will 
be south of the area...closer to better forcing in the base of the 
low. The southern end of the axis of the low will slide slightly 
eastward on Tuesday...with vorticity maximum sliding northeast through the 
coastal plains. Several models showing better coverage of quantitative precipitation forecast east 
of I-35 on Tuesday...closer to this feature and better moisture 
pooling. The upper level low nudges farther east on Wednesday and 
Thursday...into far East Texas and the northwest Gulf of Mexico. 
Low...isolated probability of precipitation will remain confined through the remainder of 
the week across the coastal plains...although a stray shower or 
storm can not be ruled out farther inland during the late 
afternoon and evening hours near and west of I-35...hinted by the 
GFS. Temperatures generally within a degree or two of climatology.
