AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
1116 AM CST MON NOV 24 2014

.AVIATION...
SURFACE WINDS ARE ALREADY BACKING TO A MORE WESTERLY DIRECTION IN
THE METROPLEX AS THE AXIS OF A SURFACE RIDGE PASSES ACROSS NORTH
TEXAS. WIND SPEEDS HAVE BEEN DECREASING DUE TO A SLACKENING
PRESSURE GRADIENT...AND WE WILL GO AHEAD AND INDICATE A LIGHT WEST
WIND AT TAF ISSUANCE FOR THE DFW AREA TAFS. WINDS AT KACT WILL
LIKELY FOLLOW SUIT LATER THIS AFTERNOON.

A SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL SWING ACROSS TEXAS EARLY TUESDAY. SURFACE
WINDS WILL RESPOND BY VEERING TO A NORTHERLY DIRECTION ONCE AGAIN
BY 12Z TUESDAY...WITH SPEEDS REMAINING AROUND 5 KT. IMPACTS
WOULD MAINLY OCCUR AT DFW WHERE A BRIEF RETURN TO NORTH FLOW IS
POSSIBLE FOR THE TUESDAY MORNING HOURS.

WE EXPECT ANOTHER RETURN TO LIGHT SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS
TUESDAY AFTERNOON AHEAD OF A SECONDARY PUSH OF COOL AIR...WHICH
IS ON TRACK FOR WEDNESDAY MORNING. OTHERWISE...SOME MID LEVEL
CLOUDS MAY THICKEN UP AS THE SHORTWAVE CROSSES THE AREA EARLY
TUESDAY...BUT CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN VFR AT ALL TAF
LOCATIONS.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 232 AM CST MON NOV 24 2014/
A LARGE AREA OF TROUGHING DOMINATES THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN PARTS
OF THE U.S. THIS MORNING BUT THE ACTIVE WEATHER HAS ALL MOVED WELL
EAST OF OUR REGION. SUNNY SKIES AND COOLER TEMPERATURES CAN BE
EXPECTED TODAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE AREA. WINDS WILL
BE CONSIDERABLY LIGHTER TODAY AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT HAS
WEAKENED CONSIDERABLY BEHIND YESTERDAYS COLD FRONT. CLEAR SKIES
TONIGHT AND LIGHT WINDS WILL RESULT IN A COOL NIGHT WITH LOWS
DROPPING INTO THE MID 30S. OUTLYING AREAS MAY DROP TO NEAR
FREEZING. ANOTHER SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE OVER THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS TOMORROW RESULTING IN A SECONDARY PUSH OF COOLER AIR.
TEMPERATURES ON TUESDAY SHOULD BE A COUPLE OF DEGREES COOLER THAN
TODAY.

THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK LOOKS NICE ACROSS ALL OF NORTH TEXAS
AS WE WILL BE ON THE EASTERN EDGE OF UPPER RIDGING. THIS WILL
PLACE US IN NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT...HOWEVER LOWER LEVEL WINDS WILL
BE MORE WEST-SOUTHWEST. THIS SHOULD ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO WARM
THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. HIGHS WILL BE IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S
ON THANKSGIVING DAY AND WILL CLIMB INTO THE LOWER 70S FOR FRIDAY
AND SATURDAY. SOME MOISTURE WILL WORK BACK INTO NORTH TEXAS BY
SATURDAY AND ANOTHER COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH
SOMETIME LATE SUNDAY. RIGHT NOW...ONLY LOW RAIN CHANCES ARE
EXPECTED. OTHERWISE...NO SIGNIFICANT WEATHER IS EXPECTED THROUGH
THE UPCOMING WEEK.
