NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
254 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Short term (tonight through Thursday night)... 
at least another day of hot and dry conditions is expected before 
some adjustments to the upper level ridge location will result in 
some possible moisture increases from the east and northeast by 
Thursday night increasing cloud cover in these locations. 
Until then...the ridge axis will shift west across the Red River 
valley and strengthen slightly. It may be just enough to push a 
few locations that havent hit 100 yet to the century mark but top 
performing guidance is not indicating triple digits elsewhere 
beyond the Rio Grande Valley tomorrow. With consensus guidance 
performing at nearly 99 percent across the area over the last 
week...resistance to using these values would be futile. 


&& 


Long term (friday through wednesday)... 
best opportunity for rainfall appears to be Friday into Saturday 
as convection from the southward moving cold front moves eastward 
into the eastern half of our area. Thinking this will be be mixing 
out by the time it arrives and really only isolated convection 
will be the story...however...pwat values are quite high...even 
over 2 inches on the GFS forecast soundings. Instability is meager 
but appreciable so while storms may be isolate in nature...gusty 
winds and some briefly and locally heavy rain could occur as 
well. 


Saturday model discrepancies exist in the evolution of shortwave 
disturbance embedded in the upper high over the southern rockies. 
Euro depicts a fairly strong disturbance resulting in the 
potential for a storm complex in the Panhandle with the potential 
for some southward movement to our northern zones by Saturday 
night. However GFS has a much drier outlook and weaker shortwave 
generation which would keep US dry after Saturday and into next 
week. 


For next week...a return to a hot and dry period looks to return 
as upper level flow becomes zonal across the northern half of the 
country and high pressure reinforcing over the southwest.
