NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
718 PM EDT Friday may 22 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry Canadian high pressure will linger atop the region through the 
Holiday weekend. A southerly flow of moisture around Bermuda high 
pressure will gradually return next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
as of 715 PM...the forecast remains on track. I will update to 
adjust hrly temperatures through tonight. Overall...tonight should 
be calm...dry...and passing bands of thin high clouds. 


As of 5 PM...nice conditions across the region provide little reason 
to update the forecast. Recent satellite images and view out the 
windows indicated a patch of cirrus/wave clouds across the NC/SC 
state line across the foothills and Piedmont. I will update the 
forecast to indicate that cloud cover may remain for a couple of 
hours. Minor edits made to hourly temperature and dewpoints late this 
afternoon. 


As of 200 PM EDT Friday...an approaching upper ridge axis will allow 
heights to continually rise through the period. A surface ridge 
sliding through the Northern Ohio valley region will continue to 
advect east tonight...through the day on Saturday allowing for a 
weak back door reinforcing front to push into northeast Georgia and the 
western Carolinas. Thus...the entire forecast remains dry with below 
normal temperatures and light gradually veering winds highlighting 
the period. Expecting clear skies to prevail overnight tonight 
leading to abundant radiational cooling...therefore temperatures 
were populated from a consensus of raw guidance which was 3-5 
degrees cooler than mosguide. Expecting lows tonight in the upper 
40s to lower 50s over the lower terrain...while some values in the 
Lower/Middle 30s are expected over the higher elevations. Highs on 
Saturday will be slightly warmer than today...however still approx 3- 
5 degrees below climatology with dewpoints in the 40s supporting low 
humidity levels. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
as of 210 PM Friday...dry weather will continue on Sunday as upper ridge 
axis continues to build atop the southeast Continental U.S.. low level flow around Bermuda 
hipres will steadily advect higher temperatures and dewpoints into the 
southern Appalachians. Maximums will be a few degree f warmer 
than Saturday topping out a bit above climatology. The upper pattern 
evolves slowly on Monday with the ridge axis sharpening. It is 
debatable how just far west it/S suppressive effects linger through 
sunset but the steady increase in low level moisture leads the model 
consensus to favor at least isolated diurnal deep convection in 
and/or near the high terrain. Temperatures are slated to continue to 
rise 2-3 degree f above Sunday/S readings. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 215 PM Friday...the medium range continues to look Summer-like 
with an upper ridge/anticyclone holding along the southeast coast 
and a Bermuda high at the surface providing a generally moist flow 
from the Gulf/Atlantic at low levels. This will favor above normal 
temperatures and mainly diurnal showers and storms each day. There is some 
discrepancy in the models on Thursday...for what it is Worth...in 
terms of the timing and strength of a short wave moving across the 
Midwest/Ohio Valley. This feature could push a weak boundary into the 
area on Wednesday evening or Thursday which would enhance precipitation 
chances mainly over the mountains...hence the likely pop over parts of 
the mountains both days. Chances may go down a bit for Friday if that 
boundary actually moves through. The chances for severe thunderstorms 
each day look minimal at this point because of poor lapse rates and 
relatively weak instability with middle level warm air. 


&& 


Aviation /23z Friday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...the center of a dry airmass will pass over 
the Appalachians tonight...reaching the western Atlantic by Saturday 
afternoon. MOS and near term models indicate only VFR conditions 
through the period across the western Carolinas. I will indicate 
winds generally 5 kts or less...generally calm tonight...with east-southeast 
winds developing by Sat afternoon. 


Outlook...high pressure will remain over the region through the 
weekend...then shift east early next week...allowing moisture to 
gradually return out of the south. Conditions should remain 
generally fair through the period.
