NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
709 am EDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


Synopsis... 
an upper low will approach the area with a frontal passage Monday 
morning. A second major front ahead of a mass of cold air from 
Canada is expected by Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 630 am EDT Saturday...still quiet across the region with 
mainly middle/high level clouds thickening. Low clouds were drifting 
down from NE across the western Piedmont. 


High pressure over eastern Canada this morning will continue to 
expand...which is expected to push a back door cold front of sorts 
farther to the south and west into the western part of NC during the 
day. Assuming this happens...all sorts of subtle complications 
arise. Extensive low clouds behind the boundary would keep temperatures 
cooler well into the day and delay or perhaps even prevent much in 
the way of destabilization to the north of it. Meanwhile...to the 
south of the boundary...we expect some destabilization to occur by 
midday. However...it might not become as unstable as previously 
thought...perhaps only on the order of 1000-1500 j/kg of cape based 
on the new NAM/sref...with the better cape and lapse rates remaining 
to our west. Shear still increases late in the day to something on 
the order of 35-40 knots so there remains a distinct possibility of 
organized thunderstorms. What we lack in instability might be 
compensated by a stronger surface boundary with better shear and 
storm relative helicity in its vicinity. Bottom line is we might not 
have quite as good a chance at severe storms across much of the 
region...still enough to warrant the marginal in the new day 1 
convective outlook...but at the same time we might have a slightly 
better chance at severe storms near the boundary. This will be 
mentioned in the severe weather potential statement. The convection-allowing model guidance 
develops numerous coverage...so a relatively high precipitation probability 
will be kept...and it ramps up through the chance range and into the 
likely range through the afternoon and evening...aided by the 
passage of a short wave trough and upper divergence aloft. Temperatures will 
depend on how strong the boundary is...with perhaps near normal 
temperatures over the northwest Piedmont and above normal elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Saturday...by Sunday morning...upper trough 
elongates and moves into the upper Midwest with a large area of low 
surface pressure around in-OH-KY. Position of surface low will 
allow boundary-layer moist advection to continue over the gsp County Warning Area on 
southwesterly 850mb flow that becomes more westerly Sunday night as 
major cold front approaches the Appalachians. Actual frontal passage occurs 
Monday morning with northwesterly flow behind front and any deep moisture 
being scoured southeastward. 


Main forecast impact will be the possibility of thunderstorms on 
Sunday. Current GFS gives Li to -7 over most of the County Warning Area with bulk 
shear of 25 to 35 kts Sunday afternoon...with things more 
convectively stable on Monday as bl moisture moves southeastward. 
Other models have less instability...and shear forecast is moderate 
at best. Still...if instability can top 1000 j/kg Sunday afternoon 
some low-end severe may be possible. Currently expect thunderstorm 
activity primarily Sunday afternoon moving generally west to east 
across the area...with Monday mostly dry except for some possible 
upslope generated showers on the northwest side of the Appalachians. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 300 am Saturday...following cold frontal passage on Monday...Tuesday 
through Friday will return to seasonally normal temperatures and 
dryer conditions. Area will be initially south of a large upper low 
and some shortwave energy may rotate around the low across the 
area to give some scattered showers Tuesday or Wednesday. As the 
eastern Continental U.S. Upper low develops...a late season shot of Arctic air 
descends from Canada across the Great Lakes and reaches the 
Appalachians by Thursday...bringing the next chance of significant 
precipitation Thursday and Friday. Latest GFS is rather cold with 
the Thursday.-Fri. System with 500-1000mb thickness down to 531 dam as 
far south as North Carolina Friday morning with 850mb temperatures 
down to -2c. Would still expect surface temperatures to remain in 
the middle to upper 30s at worst over higher terrain...precluding for 
the moment a chance for snow. However...system will cool highs on 
Friday to 10 degrees below normal...with a rapid recovery to normal 
on Saturday. 


While the GFS and ec still have considerable disagreement...they are 
aligned better than yesterday. In fact...the ec looks quite similar 
to the GFS Friday morning with 850mb temperatures of around -2c reaching 
the Appalachians. A major difference between GFS and ec is that the 
ec has a much stronger short wave rotating around the northeast 
low...giving stronger chances for light rain Wednesday.-Thurs. 


&& 


Aviation /11z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and khky...IFR has reached khky...and is on the doorstep at 
kclt. A weak back door front will drift down from the NE and should 
bring the MVFR/IFR cloud deck across kclt at the start of the 
period. The low clouds should lift/erode in the middle of the day 
and give way to convective clouds in the middle/late afternoon...at 
which time showers/thunderstorms become a concern. This will be 
handled with a tempo with the timing based on a consensus of the 
guidance. Wind should come around to southeast as this happens. Either 
way...expect flight restrictions inside the precipitation areas. Ceiling 
may come back down late Saturday evening but this detail had to be 
left out of the tafs for now. 


Elsewhere...how far to the SW the low clouds would move before 
running up against a warming boundary layer after sunrise is open to 
debate. A consensus of the guidance would bring at least a broken/overcast 
low cloud deck down across the NC Piedmont and foothills with a 
cloud base in the MVFR range...but it would not reach any of the 
upstate taf sites...so VFR conditions will prevail at least through 
mid-morning...and will continue outside of showers/storms that 
develop in the afternoon/evening. Will handle convection with a 
tempo group in the late afternoon and will transition to a prob30 in 
the evening when coverage is expected to diminish. Wind should be 
light NE overnight...then southeast during the day. 


Outlook...unsettled weather/occasional convection/restrictions are 
expected to continue into early next week...as a front becomes 
stalled near the area. Definitive drying does not appear likely 
until at least mid-week.
