Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fort Worth TX 617 AM CST Wed Dec 11 2019

AVIATION. /12Z TAFs/

A narrow swath of IFR/LIFR stratus and fog has nosed its way northward into the DFW Metroplex over the past couple of hours. This appears to be the northern edge of broad area of shallow moisture which extends all the way to the Gulf Coast. Model guidance has had a difficult time handling this set-up, and the latest near-term forecast relies heavily on METAR and satellite trends. Infrared imagery indicates that the back edge of the moisture tongue is just east of the Dallas area, so forecasts have been updated to prevail IFR/LIFR through 15Z. Cigs and visibilities should improve thereafter as the moist axis shifts farther to the west. Low ceilings may last a little longer in the Waco area where slightly deeper moisture exists. Conditions should be VFR across all locations by midday. Additional low cigs and fog will be possible Thursday morning, but at this time it looks like these conditions would occur west of all TAF sites where the better low level moisture values will reside.

SHORT TERM. /Issued 249 AM CST Wed Dec 11 2019/ /Today and Tonight/

Shallow moisture working its way westward around the southern portion of a surface ridge is producing a stratus deck over Central and Southeast Texas. So far these clouds have remained south of the I-20 corridor, but recent satellite imagery indicates a slight northward shift over the past couple of hours. Southern portions of the DFW Metroplex along with many areas south of Interstate 20 may therefore experience overcast conditions for a short while this morning. Temperatures have climbed above freezing upon arrival of the stratus, and should remain above the freezing mark for the rest of the morning thanks to the blanketing cloud layer. Meanwhile, temperatures have fallen below 32 degrees in nearly all locations which have remained clear, with a few rural spots hitting the mid 20s over the past hour.

Recent high resolution guidance has been aggressive with fog development this morning, though little to none has formed at this point. Even so, patchy fog has been added to areas mainly on the leading edge of the low clouds where development is most likely. Will keep an eye on visibilities as the morning progresses and adjust the WX grids as necessary.

Clouds are expected to scatter late this morning as the ridge shifts to the east and light return flow develops. The ensuing insolation will allow temperatures to climb into the 40s and eventually lower 50s by this afternoon. Mostly clear skies will lead to another cold night with lows falling generally into the lower and middle 30s by daybreak Thursday. Light south winds and slightly higher dewpoints should lead to fewer instances of mid and upper 20s temperatures.

LONG TERM. /Issued 249 AM CST Wed Dec 11 2019/ /Thursday through Tuesday/

The upper pattern will remain active through the end of the week into the weekend, although we'll have limited chances for rainfall as moisture return will be marginal at best. On Thursday, we should start out with some high clouds passing through as a disturbance swings through the Southern Plains. This system will pass by mainly unnoticed, but southerly winds will increase some during the afternoon as a weak area of low pressure develops over the TX Panhandle. On Friday as this surface low moves east, low level winds will veer to the southwest and allow for a warmup into the mid/upper 60s and perhaps some lower 70s across our southwest counties. A weak front will slide down into the area on Saturday with little change in temperatures expected.

A stronger system will move into the area late Sunday and will bring some rain/storm chances to mainly our eastern counties late Sunday night into Monday. Moisture return will be marginal and generally confined to areas east of I-35. The front should move through North Texas late Sunday night into Monday morning and we'll have rain chances at 30-50% across the far east during this time. Monday will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s near the Red River with low/mid 50s to the south, although skies should become mostly sunny by afternoon. High pressure and mid level ridging will prevail behind this front with temperatures slowly moderating through mid week.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
