NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
753 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Synopsis... 
an large upper ridge will strengthen and retrograde over the 
southeast through the weekend. Shower and thunderstorm chances will 
favor the afternoon and evening with the best chances residing over 
the high terrain. A middle level trough is expected to dig east of the 
Mississippi River by the middle of next week. Temperatures will 
increase to above normal levels. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 730 PM...an isolated patch of deep convection has managed to 
grow out of some enhanced cumulus that developed over the Black Mountains...so 
at least the southern foothills/Blue Ridge of NC stand a chance at seeing 
some precipitation through sunset. Elsewhere...a thickening veil of cirrus 
appears to have put the kibosh on any other showers or storms...so a 
lowering of precipitation chances still looks good through middle evening. 
Temperature trends look adequate. 


Previous discussion... 


At 200 PM EDT Tuesday...a weakening shortwave will move northeast and 
away from our area late today. An upper level ridge will build west 
from the Atlantic to the Gulf states tonight and Wednesday. This 
ridging will result in the bulk of shortwave activity passing by to 
our north...reducing forcing over our area. 


At the surface...a cold front to our north will stall to our north 
over the Ohio and Potomac River valleys on Wednesday. Moisture 
associated with the front is expected to reach our northern tier of 
counties before daybreak. Despite rising heights aloft...model 
soundings show substantial instability both this afternoon and again 
on Wednesday...with plenty of dry air aloft for evaporative 
cooling...and even some modest low level shear. Convective chances 
will be better north and east of Interstate 85...where more moisture 
will be available. Temperatures will run above normal with 
increasing heights aloft. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
as of 230 PM Tuesday...a typical summertime pattern continues through 
the short range period with the subtropical Bermuda anticyclone in 
place across the southeastern Continental U.S. Keeping any short waves at Bay to our 
west and north. That said...the center of the anticyclone does 
retrograde on shore during the period...possibly setting up a 
pattern change for later in the forecast with a building central 
Continental U.S. Ridge and northeastern Continental U.S. Trough. 


The surface pattern is typical as well with weak ridging across the mountains 
and a Lee trough across the Piedmont...and any significant fronts or 
low pressure systems off to our north. That said...the Lee trough 
looks to be setting up farther east than typical...keeping any 
better forcing to the east as well. All this means isolated to scattered 
diurnal convection across the mountains with little to no activity across 
the Piedmont...unless the Lee trough is farther west. Some of the 
guidance for Friday is hinting at better convective chance outside of 
the mountains east of I-26 where outflow boundaries from an overnight mesoscale convective system 
are able to move into the area helping provide a trigger. Will have 
to wait and see if this develops as the low level westerly flow is 
creating a generally drier pattern. Although the overall chance of for 
severe storms is low...an isolated severe storm is possible...mainly 
across the mountains 


With the ridge in place...thicknesses rise through the period pushing 
temperatures into the middle 90s outside of the mountains and well into the 80s 
across the mountain valleys. However...dew points will be relatively low 
with the westerly flow...keeping heat index values under 100. Lows in the 
upper 60s to lower 70s expected outside of the mountains...with 60s for 
the mountain valleys. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
245 PM Tuesday...medium range models indicate that a large 500 mb ridge 
will remain centered across the deep south on Saturday...sliding 
west to the Southern Plains by Sunday. This weekend...very warm middle 
level temperatures will remain across the region...resulting in very 
little instability. Given the middle level ridging...weak surface 
flow...and unfavorable thermal and moisture profiles...I will keep 
probability of precipitation limited to chance along the ridges with schc probability of precipitation east. 
Temperatures should range 3 to 5 degrees above normal. 


Monday and Tuesday...the 500 mb ridge is forecast to amplify across the 
Great Plains as a longwave trough digs across the Appalachians. Medium 
range models generally show a active period of mesoscale convective system activity across 
the Ohio River valleys and middle Atlantic region. However...the 
western Carolinas and NE Georgia should remain well south the mesoscale convective system tracks. 
However...falling heights aloft and cooling middle level temperatures 
should yield greater instability across the County Warning Area. I will indicate a 
middle day increase in probability of precipitation across the mountains...spreading east across the 
foothills and Piedmont during the afternoon. High temperatures 
should continue to range 3 to 4 degrees above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...VFR through the period. Expect a light SW wind overnight with 
some thin cirrus. On Wednesday...convective clouds should once again 
develop with some heating during the late morning hours. The NAM 
seems overly aggressive with developing showers/storms on the Blue 
Ridge in early afternoon and then carrying them across the western 
Piedmont in the early evening Wednesday...like there is some upscale 
growth. Forecast soundings do not look all that great and think the 
model is overdone. Prefer something more like the Storm Prediction Center 4km WRF that 
shows the Piedmont remaining dry...like today...so have left any 
mention out of the taf. 


Elsewhere...an isolated patch of showers/storms over the southern 
foothills/Blue Ridge of NC should dissipate with loss of heating 
before it reaches any taf sites. Overnight...with just some thin 
cirrus...think mountain valleys will once again get some fog. Went 
persistent at kavl thinking that temporary IFR is a distinct 
possibility...but MVFR a good bet. Kand also a decent bet to see a 
brief period of MVFR fog around daybreak. Otherwise...scattered cumulus with a 
SW wind on Wednesday. Best chance...30 percent or so...for convection 
will be near the mountains and foothills...thus indicated at kavl/khky. 


Outlook...isolated to scattered afternoon/evening thunderstorms are 
expected over the area through this weekend...mainly in the mountains...with 
associated restrictions under the heaviest showers. Low clouds and 
fog could develop in the morning at places that have shower activity 
the day before.
