NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
1024 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Update... 
the watch has been cancelled early. Outflow has become dominant 
and the threat of severe weather has diminished. Updated probability of precipitation 
through 06z to reflect current radar trends as well. 


Hampshire 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 656 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015/ 


Aviation... 
in the very short term...a line of strong to severe thunderstorms 
will move to the north of kaus...while an isolated cell will move 
north of ksat. Thunderstorms in the vicinity was placed in the kaus taf...while no mention 
was made for ksat since that storm should stay a bit further away. 
At this time...we expect both sites to remain free of -shra/-tsra... 
but storm mergers and new development may require updates. 


The storms should die off/move east after 03z...followed by MVFR 
ceilings...then eventually IFR ceilings at the I-35 sites from 08-15z. 
Kdrt will be the exception with VFR conditions. A trough will 
shift winds from S-southeast to SW at 15z Sunday...then a cold front 
will make a further shift to north after 18z at kdrt and around 00z 
Monday at the I-35 sites. 


Previous discussion... /issued 502 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015/ 


Update... 
forecast products have been updated to reflect the eastward 
extension of ww# 72. No other changes have been made to the 
forecast at this time. 


Previous discussion... /issued 257 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015/ 


Short term (tonight through Sunday night)... 
upper air analysis this morning showed a low over Colorado with 
southwesterly flow across Texas. At the surface a dryline was 
stretched from around Childress to San Angelo to The Big Bend. The 
pressure field across our County Warning Area is ill defined and winds were 
generally light and variable. Dew point temperatures remain high 
in the middle to upper 60s. Drt sounding this morning showed a weak 
cap at about 850mb. Expecting storms to form along the dryline and 
continue into the first period. Models forecast cape 1000-2000 
j/kg with highest values along and southeast of I-35 with vertical 
wind shear of 30-40 kts. Storm Prediction Center has US in an enhanced risk for severe 
thunderstorms. Looks like the best scenario for this evening will 
be a line of storms moving through The Hill Country toward the 
southeast and across I-35 toward I-10. The main threat will be 
large hail and damaging wind. There will also be a lower threat 
for tornadoes. Storms should weaken after midnight and then move 
away from our area. Sunday a weak cold front will move through and 
turn the winds to the north. This will bring drier air and end 
rain chances. This also allow temperatures to climb and Sunday 
will be a very warm day. Then clear skies will allow for good 
radiational cooling Sunday night. 


Long term (monday through saturday)... 
gradual ridging will build over the Southern Plains into the 
middle of the new week. Then a trough will dig down through the 
west and the ridge will become more pronounced by Thursday. The 
trough will begin to progress eastward Friday and move to the 
Central Plains by Saturday.
