NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
642 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Aviation... 
rain showers/isolated thunderstorms and rain currently along a boundary from kdrt to kerv to 
kbmq to Kile will slowly weaken as it moves to the southeast across south 
central Texas this morning. Boundaries and a cold frontal passage 
will lead to rain showers/thunderstorms and rain midday into tonight. Have gone with 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain at the taf sites for 12z to 14z and tempos for thunderstorms and rain for 
this afternoon into evening with vcsh otherwise. IFR/MVFR ceilings 
become VFR with the passage of the boundary and will generally 
remain VFR for the rest of today through Sunday morning...except 
for MVFR ceilings in rain showers/thunderstorms and rain and possibly a period tonight. S to southeast 
winds 5 to 10 kts will turn to north to NE with the surface boundaries 
and frontal passage. Some gusts to 50 kts and gr are possible in 
and near thunderstorms and rain.

Previous discussion... /issued 253 am CDT Sat may 30 2015/ 


Short term (today through sunday)... 


The main highlight this period will focus on the currently 
ongoing thunderstorm complex north/northwest of the region and its evolution 
through the day today that could result in locally heavy rainfall 
and flash flooding. Will bump up the timing of the Flash Flood 
Watch to start at 4am this morning given current trends and 
continue it through 7am Sunday. 


Current radar imagery across the state of Texas reveals a southward 
traveling thunderstorm complex. Radar trends indicate a gust 
front/outflow boundary had developed out well ahead of the complex 
as it pushes south and this will likely undercut the updrafts and 
keep them in a weakened state. The question becomes how will this 
outflow boundary or another possible boundary from the storms 
currently in New Mexico and how they may interact with a sea-breeze 
will shape today's rain and thunderstorm potential. Today's 
resultant storm activity will be highly mesoscale driven with some 
aid on the synoptic scale as a weak shortwave trough will be over 
the region. 


Overall, feel hrrr/rap have decent handle on current situation and 
overall signals from Storm Prediction Center sseo suggest that southward progressing 
boundary and weakening storms will enter Hill Country around 4-5am. 
General band of light to moderate rain may make it to the I-35 
corridor near 8-10am with southern areas remaining dry through noon. 
The question will be how much momentum will this boundary have and 
how much cloud cover could result. If momentum slows and sets up a 
convergence boundary with the sea-breeze in an unstable environment 
then the conditions will be set for localized showers and storms 
with localized heavy rainfall during the afternoon. A second 
scenario is that the outflow continues through much of the region 
through late morning and a second boundary (from current New Mexico 
storms) in combo with weak front in association with the shortwave 
trough and also acts to help trigger localized heavy showers and 
storms. A third scenario would be the first boundary hangs up over 
the region but with slightly stronger convection initially this 
morning and creates more cloud cover/stratiform rain. This would 
deplete some of the available buoyant energy later this afternoon by 
keeping temperatures down and keep the atmosphere slightly more stable. At 
this stage...feel the first two scenarios are more likely and have a 
concern for localized heavy rainfall of 1-2 inches with localized 3 
inches over already saturated ground. These conditions could lead to 
rapid run-off and localized flash flooding. Will maintain the Flood 
Watch as is area wise given precipitable waters  1.6" and the numerous triggers 
possible. Overall heavy rain threat will diminish through Sunday 
morning. 


For Sunday...lingering showers and some isolated thunderstorms will 
remain possible as the base of the trough pivots across the region. 
While rain will be possible...heavy rain does not appear likely at 
this point. 


Long term (sunday night through friday)... 


A much needed break from the active wet pattern finally looks to 
develop in the long term period with no major impact weather 
highlights. 


By Monday...global models are in agreement that the trough from 
Sunday will linger and possibly close off in the northern Gulf or 
lower Mississippi River valley. Shortwave ridging and deeper middle to 
upper level northerly flow Monday through Wednesday should keep most 
of the area dry. The only small caveat would be limited moisture 
return in the low-levels from southeast surface winds. There may be some sea- 
breeze activity that could make into far southeast coastal prairie zones but 
coverage is not expected to be high. Global models diverge middle-week 
on strength of the ridge over Texas with GFS being weaker with 
impulses riding the north edge across the Panhandle while European model (ecmwf) is 
much stronger with little evidence of disturbances. Will have to 
monitor how this evolves and watch for any northwest flow tstorm complex 
developing on the dryline in far west/northwest Texas and possibly shifting 
this direction. Confidence in this possibility is not high at this 
point however. GFS ensembles support the European model (ecmwf) and it appears a weak 
to moderate Omega block could take form middle to late week with Texas 
under the drier ridge. This will allow for swollen and elevated 
river levels to recede. Temperatures should be near normal with 
readings in the upper 80s/low 90s and lows in the upper 60s/near 70.
