Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
626 am CDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Aviation... 
IFR/MVFR ceilings will prevail this morning. Kaus is down to LIFR. 
Expecting to improve to MVFR after 15z and likely remain there 
until after 18z when we should see a few hours of VFR. After 04z 
will see MVFR ceilings return and fall to IFR after 08z...then back to 
MVFR after 15z Monday. Only terminal currently with fog is kaus 
and expect this to continue. Currently do not feel fog will become 
an issue at other sites due to larger temperature/dewpt spreads. Will see 
fog development after 08z tonight with most locations at 3sm-5sm. 
Will have the chance for -ra/-shra/-tsra this morning and into the 
afternoon. Greatest chance for thunder will be at kdrt. Since we 
have no focus and low probability of precipitation will be difficult to pinpoint timing 
of any convection so have not included in I-35 terminals at this 
time. Did include a tempo group for kdrt this morning. Winds will 
be east/southeast 5 to 10 knots this morning...increasing to 10 to 15 knots 
after 15z and back to 5 to 10 knots after 00z.

Previous discussion... /issued 347 am CDT sun Apr 20 2014/ 


Short term (today through monday)... 
scattered showers and thunderstorms over the northern Rio Grande 
plains are waning as the shortwave trough and supporting jet 
streak move away toward the northeast. The proximity to the ragged 
upper low and heating over the higher terrain of West Texas and 
Mexico should be enough for storms again this afternoon. Also kept 
lowish probability of precipitation as far east as the I-35 corridor in the event enough 
of the middle and upper level forcing stay intact. 


The main action still appears to be from middle-afternoon through 
middle-evening Monday. Model solutions still vary...but the 
commonality is moderate to strong instability (cape >= 2000 
j/kg)...weak to moderate 0-6 km shear (20 M/s)...and average 
freezing levels (11 kft). Depending on diurnal heating and the 
location of upper level jet streaks and middle-level shortwave trough 
axes...there could be a range of convective evolutions...from 
right (swwrd) moving supercells...to a moderate mesoscale convective system sweeping the 
northeastern 1/4 of the area...to a cluster of strong to 
minimally-severe storms. Storm motions could also be very slow and 
bring the potential for isolated minor flash flooding. 
Overall...will maintain mention of severe storms for Monday 
afternoon and evening. The main area of concern is The Hill 
Country and I-35 corridor...with the primary threat of large 
hail...and most likely between 2 and 8 PM. 


Long term (monday night through saturday)... 
after the storms clear Monday evening...fairly flat middle-level flow 
will continue through Wednesday. A fairly sharp trough passes 
through the northern and Central Plains Wednesday night and early 
Thursday. Since our area is the far tail end of the trough...only 
20 probability of precipitation for Wednesday night...no severe storms or even significant 
rain is expected. Southwesterly middle-level flow strengthens 
Thursday through Saturday. This will bring a warm trend with highs 
in the upper 8os and lower 90s. There are some indications of 
minor ripples in this subtropical flow...but at this time the most 
likely outcome would be storms forming on the serranias del burro 
mountains in northern Mexico...with one or two storms making it 
across the Rio Grande.
