AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
615 PM CDT WED JUL 29 2015

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AT ALL TAF SITES THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. WINDS WILL REMAIN SOUTHEAST THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING
BEFORE TURNING WEST/SOUTHWEST IN ADVANCE OF A WEAK COLD FRONT THAT
WILL BEGIN TO IMPINGE ON THE REGION FROM THE NORTHEAST THURSDAY
AFTERNOON. WITH A RELATIVELY DIFFUSE SURFACE PATTERN IN
PLACE...THERE WILL NOT BE AN ABRUPT WIND SHIFT BUT RATHER A SLOW
TRANSITION TO LIGHT VARIABLE WINDS FOLLOWED BY INCREASING EASTERLY
WINDS ALONG AND BEHIND THE FRONTAL ZONE. REGARDLESS...WIND SPEEDS
ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN AT OR BELOW 10 KTS SO CROSS-WIND ISSUES FOR
NORTH/SOUTH RUNWAYS ARE NOT EXPECTED.

THERE WILL ALSO BE SLIGHT CHANCES FOR ISOLATED CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY
ON THURSDAY AFTERNOON BUT THE BEST CHANCES WILL BE ALONG THE
FRONTAL BOUNDARY NORTH AND EAST OF THE TAF SITES. AS OF RIGHT
NOW...IT APPEARS UNLIKELY THAT TAF SITES WILL EXPERIENCE ANY
SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY THROUGH THE NEXT 24 TO 30 HOURS.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 311 PM CDT WED JUL 29 2015/

A SURFACE LOW SEEN ON SATELLITE OVER SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA HAS JUST
PRODUCED SOME NEW CELLS NEAR OUR NORTHWEST COUNTIES. THESE SHOULD
MOVE NORTH-NORTHWEST SLOWLY...BUT ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT MAY OCCUR
OVER PARTS OF YOUNG AND MONTAGUE COUNTIES THROUGH SUNSET.

WILL ALLOW THE CURRENT HEAT ADVISORY TO EXPIRE THIS EVENING AT 7
PM.

A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL MOVE SLOWLY INTO THE CWA ON THURSDAY WITH
A LOW CHANCE OF AFTERNOON CONVECTION MAINLY EAST OF I-35/35E AND
THEN OVER THE NORTHEASTERN HALF THURSDAY NIGHT. HAVE MAINTAINED
20-30 POPS ACROSS THE CWA ON FRIDAY AS THE FRONT MOVES FARTHER
INTO THE SOUTHERN COUNTIES DURING THE DAY. ONLY 20 POPS OVER THE
FAR WESTERN AND SOUTHWESTERN COUNTIES ON SATURDAY AS THE FRONT
BEGINS TO MOVE OUT OF THE CWA. ALTHOUGH PWATS INCREASE FROM AROUND
1.60 INCHES ON THURSDAY TO AROUND 2.00 INCHES ON FRIDAY...WIND AND
THERMAL PROFILES DO NOT FAVOR HEAVY PRECIPITATION PRODUCTION ON
EITHER DAY.

THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR NOCTURNAL CONVECTION REACHING THE FAR
NORTHWESTERN COUNTIES MONDAY MORNING...BUT CONFIDENCE IN THIS ONE
MODEL SOLUTION IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN THIS FORECAST.

TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN HOT ON THURSDAY BUT SOME COOLER
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED OVER THE NORTHERN HALF ON FRIDAY. THE
SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES MIGHT MEET HEAT ADVISORY CRITERIA TOMORROW
AND FRIDAY IF DEWPOINTS DO NOT MIX OUT. DRIER AIR WILL PUSH INTO
THE REGION BEHIND THE WEAK COLD FRONT AND THIS WILL RESULT IN
SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES OVER THE NORTHERN HALF ON FRIDAY AND
OVER THE WEEKEND. HOWEVER...HIGHS SOUTH OF I-20 WILL NOT CHANGE
MUCH AND BY MONDAY THEY ARE BACK TO THOSE SEEN OVER THE PAST FEW
DAYS. HOT TEMPERATURES RETURN AREA WIDE TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. 75
