NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
627 PM CDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Aviation...the previous set of tafs has been adjusted to account 
for convection that is developing in the vicinity of aus...Sat... 
and ssf. Overall...expect showers and thunderstorms to affect 
these aerodromes through the next few hours until conditions 
become more quiet after midnight. The weather pattern looks a 
little drier for Friday...and that previous trend has been kept 
for these tafs. However...future shifts may need to include the 
mention of convection for this day. Overall...MVFR/VFR should 
dominate through the next 24 to 30 hours. Varying ceiling and 
convection trends will quite likely necessitate amendments for the 
next several hours and through tonight. 
&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 401 PM CDT Thursday Sep 18 2014/ 


Short term (tonight through Friday night)... 
the overnight rainfall event left some impressive precipitation 
totals across portions of south central Texas. Hardest hit were 
Williamson...Travis...northern Hays and northern blanco counties. 
The highest rainfall total so far has been 7.1 inches from a 
cocorahs observer in west central Travis County. There were fairly 
widespread reports of 2 to 4 inches across Travis and Williamson 
counties. 


Satellite trends from this morning show pronounced clearing across 
locations generally east of Highway 83. Daytime heating along with a 
continued very moist atmosphere (precipitable water values from near 
1.9" west to 2.25" east) have allowed another round of convection to 
develop this afternoon. Hi-res models suggest areas along and north 
of Highway 71 stand the best shot at additional precipitation this 
afternoon and into the evening hours. Based on the recent 
rainfall...expected additional rainfall and the day 1 excessive 
rainfall outlook of slight to moderate...we will continue a very 
good chance for precipitation for the rest of today into tonight. 
Elsewhere across the region...the latest hi-res models suggest a 
good chance for rain across most areas...especially along and east 
of a Rocksprings to Uvalde to Pleasanton line. The hi-res arw/nmm 
show a more organized area of convection dropping south out of west 
central Texas into the western Hill Country and southern Edwards 
Plateau overnight. Given good agreement among the models...we have 
opted to increase rain chances significantly across this region. The 
atmosphere remains very moist and can/T rule out additional heavy 
rainfall and flash flooding concerns overnight. With this in mind... 
we will extend the current Flash Flood Watch for the Highway 71 
corridor through 7 am Friday morning. We will also add counties 
along and north of a Rocksprings...Uvalde...San Antonio...Gonzales 
to Hallettsville line. Rainfall amounts will generally average 1-3" 
with higher amounts of 3 to 5". Moisture remains intact on Friday 
and with subtle shortwave troughs embedded in the northwest flow 
aloft... we will increase rain chances to 30% along the Rio Grande 
and up to 50% generally north of I-10. 


Long term (saturday through thursday)... 
on Saturday...the short range models suggest the middle-level remnants 
of Odile will gradually slide eastward into portions of west central 
and central Texas. Additional showers and thunderstorms remain 
possible given plenty of moisture and daytime heating. The 
remnants of Odile eventually move east through early next week. 
We/ll continue to mention a slight chance of showers and storms 
through Tuesday. The medium range models have trended with a cold 
front next week and generally show little change in air mass 
across the region.
