NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
658 PM CDT Friday may 29 2015 


Aviation... /00z taf update/ 
no convection is expected to impact tafs for the first 9-12 hours. 
Saturated soils should interact with moderate surface southerlies 
to form low clouds before midnight...with perhaps a slight delay 
over the Rio Grande plains and the drt area. Nocturnal boundary 
layer wind enhancements look conservative in model time 
sections...suggesting an abundance of IFR conditions late tonight. 
A weakening storm complex is expected over central Texas by 
daybreak...possibly a bit faster if recent runs of the hrrr 
verify. Will stick with the more conservative Texas tech WRF and the 
coarser scale models for this evening...as the late 
afternoon/early evening runs of the hrrr have seemed to be running 
too aggressive over the past week. 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 254 PM CDT Friday may 29 2015/ 


Short term (tonight through Saturday night)... 


.Locally heavy rainfall possible Saturday across south central 
Texas... 


Recovery after last nights mesoscale convective system is slowly taking place west to 
east across the County Warning Area. Can not completely rule out an isolated 
storm through sunset...but the majority of the County Warning Area will remain 
dry through the remainder over the afternoon and evening. 


Upstream...models are indicating another organized complex of 
storms developing this evening across northwest Texas moving 
southeast through west-central Texas overnight. Past few hrrr 
runs and 12z tt 4km WRF are indicating this potential line of 
storms reaching the northern Hill Country 09z-12z. Unlike last 
night...this complex may weaken as it moves into The Hill Country 
and central Texas Saturday morning. However...outflow boundaries 
left over and an eventual weak cold front...will likely trigger 
additional showers and storms Saturday afternoon and evening 
across much of south-central Texas. At this time...forecasting 
timing and locations of heaviest amounts of precipitation are very 
difficult...as larger scale forcing is relatively weak. 


However...forecast soundings indicate rather large cape values 
across the southern half of the County Warning Area Saturday afternoon...exceeding 
3500 j/kg. When combined with slow storm motions across central 
and eastern County Warning Area...locally heavy rainfall is a possibility Saturday 
into Saturday night. A few strong storms possible out west along 
the Rio Grande where better deep layer shear is forecast. Overall 
rainfall amounts of around 1 inch are possible...with isolated 
amounts of 2-3 inches. Given the saturated conditions across the 
area...a quick 1-3 inches will cause flash flooding issues in 
several areas. Out of an abundance of caution...have elected to 
issue a Flash Flood Watch for Saturday and Saturday night. 


Long term (sunday through friday)...upper level trough to the 
west deepens Sunday into Monday across Arkansas and la. Better moisture 
on Sunday remains pooled across the southern and western County Warning Area... 
and farther to the south. Can not rule out scattered showers and 
storms in this area Sunday...but forcing appears rather limited. 
Finally drier conditions will take place along and west of the 
I-35 corridor Monday-Thursday. Can not rule out isolated showers 
and storms Monday through Thursday across the coastal prairies 
closer to better moisture and lower heights with the trough to 
the east.
