NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion

Discussion...

Aviation... 
strong warm air advection ahead of the main line of storms will 
bring in an area of showers and thunderstorms first to the kcll 
area early this afternoon...then to the remaining sites. Liked 
the nam12 but did consider other high resolution models. Tweaked 
the timing of the earlier forecast package but felt that the time 
frame for thunderstorms would mainly be from 19z to about 23z 
across most areas. Some lingering storms may persist into the 
early evening at the sites along the Interstate 45 corridor.

Previous discussion... /issued 1056 am CDT Monday may 25 2015/ 


Discussion... 
starting off the morning west/ relatively dry in in place...but based 
on upper air/satellite/radar analysis that should be changing this 
afternoon. Low level jet will be shifting back into the region and drive 
higher moisture levels (1.8-2" pw's) back into southeast Texas. Convective 
temperatures are now being met and anticipate some scattered popcorn activity 
to begin developing shortly. 


2 areas of concern today & tonight. The first is activity 
developing between San Antonio and crp moving NE. This is headed 
to an area where readings sun is shining and readings are already 
in the middle 80s. Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis indicates lifted indice's around -7 to -9 
north in the Matagorda Bay area along west/ with convective available potential energy 3-5k j/kg. 
Think we'll see a pretty good increase in coverage this afternoon west/ 
heating, increasing diffluence and moisture. 


The primary short wave & convective complex is headed toward north cntl Texas. 
Exactly how this impacts southeast Texas remains to be seen & likely 
depends on if and how stabilized atmos becomes west/ early afternoon 
convection. Still a better than average chance the southern periphery 
of this primary short wave causes north parts of southeast Texas some issues headed 
into the evening hours with favorable upper jet position and 
diffluence aloft. 


Severe threat still looks good. Flash flood threat still possible but also 
highly dependent as to how progressive this stuff moves out of 
here. Still significant model differences - but hoping for the 
more progressive nam12 which has been doing fairly well as of 
late. 47
