NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
527 am EDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
an area of low pressure will move east from the Central Plains 
states into the southeast today. A warm front will linger over our 
area for much of the weekend providing a focus of showers and a few 
storms. Dry high pressure will move in again for the start of the 
work week...with another low pressure system crossing the southeast 
by midweek. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 525 am...widespread convection across the northern half of Alabama 
will continue to track east this morning. A large area of -ra will 
gradually increase across the western Carolinas ahead of the deep 
convection. I will update the forecast to make minor tweaks to the 
pop trends. In addition...I will update temperatures to indicate 
values nearly steady through sunrise. 


As of 340 am...high debris clouds will likely increase across the 
County Warning Area through sunrise. Further west...water vapor loop indicated a 
closed middle level low over the Central Plains...drifting to the east- 
northeast. South east of the middle level low...a large band of 
convection was tracking east across northern MS/al. This activity largely 
originated near the surface warm front and within a belt of upper jet 
divergence. However...the convection is tracking quickly 
east...outpacing the most supportive environment. As a 
result...recent infrared satellite images indicated a steady warming trend 
of cloud top temperatures...lightning counts were also decreasing. 
These weakening trends match up well with the convection allowing 
models...which indicates that the deep convection will steady weaken 
as it tracks east along the I-20 corridor. A large area rain is 
forecast to occur across the County Warning Area this morning...primarily west of I- 
26. I will indicate the rainfall to fall from rain showers with some 
embedded thunderstorms. Severe weather associated with the morning 
activity appears minimal. 


By middle day...the bulk of the decaying convection is expected to push 
east of the region. During the afternoon...the primary challenge 
will be the placement of a weak in-situ area of cold air damming. 
Based off the latest NAM...I will indicate that the NC foothills and 
northern Piedmont will see light NE winds and thick and persistent cloud 
cover. However...areas to the south and west may experience deep 
southwest flow and diurnally warming temperatures. In fact...the NAM 
shows a Horseshoe shaped area of sb cape across the mountains and 
portions of the upper Savannah River valley and SC upstate east of I- 
85. In addition...impressive shear values develop within the 
unstable areas...peaking during the middle evening hours. Heilicity 
between surface-1km is forecast to range around 300 m2/s2...ehi values 
from 2... sweat values generally around 350. However...cin 
values from the NAM sounding range from 30 to 50 j/kg this evening. 
Models indicate that convection coverage will be at a minimum during 
the late afternoon and evening. 


Tonight...a well developed surface low will slide east across 
KY/TN...crossing the southern Appalachians around midnight. At the 
middle levels...the closed low from this morning will develop into a 
positive tilted trough and will ripple east over the surface low. Near term 
models indicate that a mesoscale convective system will likely develop ahead of the low 
center...steering flow should result in the system to track east- 
southeast tonight. Based on experience...I anticipate that the mesoscale convective system 
speed will be greater than the model consensus. This adjustment 
would place the mesoscale convective system over the NC mountains during the early morning hours 
Sunday. By that time...the greatest shear and instability values 
have ended...leaving weak to moderate values across the mountains and 
SC/Georgia line. This will likely support the mesoscale convective system reaching the mountains...but 
steadily weakening as the activity approaches the foothills. 
However...low wbz and lingering shear and instability would likely 
yield several severe wind and hail events as the convection arrives. 
We will continue to highlight in the severe weather potential statement. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 330 am Saturday...the short term begins with trying to time 
the exit of the surface low off the Carolina coast. Short term 
guidance in pretty good agreement with east-west elongated trough 
stretching westward into our area from the center of the surface low 
in the Atlantic at the start of the short term. Split flow pattern 
continues aloft...with shortwave also pushing offshore and mean 
trough taking over. Strogn downsloping component on Sunday will lead 
to highs increasing to well above normal values across the upstate 
and portions of the Piedmont before the actual cold front pushes 
through...though especially the northern mountains will be on the 
cool side. Midlevel moisture hangs on enough to keep some cloudiness 
and perhaps some lingering showers across the area through the early 
part of the day...but we should start seeing a clearing trend 
overnight Sunday night into Monday. 


Should see a pretty marked difference in highs on Monday behind the 
front with deep-layer cold air advection across the area...though the magnitude of 
the cold air advection decreases through the day. Another shortwave axis pushes 
down the upper trough...still firmly in place across the eastern 
portion of the country...late Monday into early Tuesday. This trough 
manages to finally push the deep upper low farther out into the 
Atlantic but will usher in cooler high pressure for the beginning of 
the extended. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 345 am Saturday...high pressure centered across the northern 
plains and southern Canada will be ridging into the southeast as we 
start the extended...with the aforementioned upper shortwave digging 
around the western periphery of the low over the northwest Atlantic. 
Meanwhile...a cutoff low over the Southern Plains will begin to 
slide east as the wavetrain finally progresses. Height falls ahead 
of the upper low will induce cyclogenesis across the northern 
Gulf...spreading moisture into the lower Mississippi Valley and 
southeast through the middle of the work week. Both the GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) have been trending the surface low farther south with 
subsequent runs and for this morning it is little different...with 
the low pushing east across the Florida Panhandle until Wednesday 
night and only lifting slightly into south Georgia. The European model (ecmwf) has 
sped the system up with a deeper north-south elongated trough phased 
with the Great Lakes trough...whereas the GFS has trended a little 
slower and takes a little longer to phase the former cutoff low with 
the larger system. In any case...cloudy and cool conditions will 
prevail through the middle of the week...with highs especially 
Wednesday a good 10 degrees below seasonal normals. Very hard to 
tell at this point...with the differences in the models plus lack of 
run-to-run continuity...when the precipitation will move out. In general 
have continued trend of Middle-Range probability of precipitation...with a few likelies south 
on Wednesday...with a slow drying trend Thursday into Thursday 
evening. More divergence in extended guidance at the end of the 
period but overall expect a drying trend toward the end of the work 
week with temperatures trending back towards climatology. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt...high debris clouds will likely increase across the NC 
Piedmont through sunrise. Low level moisture should rapidly increase from 
the southwest during the middle to late morning hours...resulting in 
MVFR ceilings and light rain showers. Ceilings will continue to lower into 
the afternoon as low level winds increases...deepening the low level forcing. 
Based on the timing of the NAM...SBCAPE and steepening lapse rates 
will develop during the late afternoon and early evening. I will 
highlight the 22z to 1z window with a prob30 for thunderstorms and rain. By late 
evening...forecast soundings become moist through a deep layer and 
model clouds are easily within IFR. Winds during the 6z taf will 
remain from the south-southwest...resulting from the approach of a 
well organized surface low over KY/TN. 


Elsewhere...conditions will generally follow the trend discussed for 
clt above. However...increases in moisture and instability will 
reach kand several hours earlier than kclt. The deep moisture and 
forcing will spread SW to NE...reaching khky around the same period 
as kclt. Khky may develop winds from the east-northeast around 
sunrise...persisting through the rest of the taf period. 
Elsewhere...winds will remain from the south-southwest. 
Thunderstorms should develop over the region during the late 
afternoon to early evening period. The greatest overlap of shear and 
instability will generally occur along and west of I-26...supporting 
damaging winds and hail. I will highlight the period of deep 
convection with a prob30. 


Outlook...a low pressure system will move across the Middle Atlantic 
States this weekend...and widespread rainfall may support 
restrictions. A cold front will sweep across the region Sunday 
night...followed by dry high pressure through Tuesday. Another low 
pressure system may track across the deep south Wednesday and 
Thursday.
