NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
141 am EDT Tuesday may 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slide farther east into the Atlantic...take on a 
more Summer-like Bermuda high pattern...and remain there through the 
week. This will produce a moist southerly flow with increased 
chances for widespread showers and thunderstorms each day. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 140 am...sh/tsra moving north across the mountains of the Carolinas 
will continue until near daybreak when they should diminish. Only a 
very low chance outside of the mountains during this time. Otherwise... 
going forecast on track with updates mainly for current conditions. 


1000 PM update...the remnants of stronger convection over east Tennessee 
and north Georgia are now moving into the southwest portion of the County warning forecast area. 
This activity should weaken as it progresses east into more stable 
air characterized by lower dewpoints. Revised probability of precipitation to bring precipitation 
into the area but it appears likely to fall apart by the time it 
reaches I-26. Updated T/dew point trends overnight from short term 
consensus product...with little change in temperatures expected and 
gradually increasing dewpoints. 


730 PM update...though moisture flux overnight should offset 
nocturnal stabilization to some degree...chances for showers/thunderstorms 
later tonight with shortwaves appear to be lower than previously 
thought...so I backed off probability of precipitation except near the southern facing Blue 
Ridge...which is still favored for development by cnvctn allowing 
models. 


As of 230 PM EDT...anticipate slightly improving upper level 
divergence over the region overnight as an upper level jetlet lifts 
northward along the Appalachians. In addition...weak shortwaves will ride 
northward along the southern Appalachians in the deep layer S/SW flow 
east of the main trough axis over the plains. Also...moist low level 
srly upslope flow into the higher terrain will increase overnight. 
This should come together to yield better coverage overnight across 
the western half of the area. Instability should be fairly weak over 
the mountains where coverage will be best. Anticipate mild mins on the 
warm side of guidance given the expected clouds and light srly 
mixing. 


Morning low clouds will allow surface heating and instability to get off 
to a very slow start on Tuesday. Temperatures should once again struggle 
into the 80s east of the mountains and upper 70s in the mountain valleys...as 
cumulus fills in as the lower clouds lift and scatter. Another shot 
of deeper moisture and lift will move over the far SW mountains on 
Tuesday afternoon...where low level SW upslope flow will be enhanced. In 
addition...convection generating ahead of the lifting wave across 
the central/lower MS River Valley will make a run eastward through 
the day...possibly triggering additional convection across the deep 
south...and perhaps approaching the southern Appalachians late. A sharp west 
to east gradient in late day probability of precipitation will be advertised. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Thursday/... 
as of 145 PM Monday...not much change in earlier thinking as the 
latest model guidance shows a moist flow out of the Gulf persisting 
as an upper ridge/anticyclone remains nearly stationary off the 
southeast coast and an upper trough deamplifies and lifts NE across 
the Midwest through the middle part of the week. Thus...once an axis of 
higher precipitable water air moves over the western Carolinas and NE Georgia...it will 
remain there...providing the fuel for showers/tstms. The models 
suggest that weak impulses will lift NE across the region that will 
enhance convective potential. What is less certain is timing of 
these features. While diurnal enhancement is expected...the precipitation 
should not entirely die off each night. That might be especially 
true Tuesday night. The convection allowing model guidance runs that 
end right around 00z Wednesday show a convective band moving in from 
the west at that time...so extrapolation of that feature would bring a 
better chance of showers/storms across the forecast area on Tuesday 
evening compared to the daytime period. The organization of the 
convection also suggests some non-zero threat for severe thunderstorms through 
the Tuesday evening hours. We are left with a forecast that favors 
likely pop over the mountains and chance pop over the Piedmont for most 
of the period...which is a bit deceptive in that it might imply a 
continual threat. In reality...there will be long stretches when 
nothing happens...it is just not possible right now to pin down when 
the showers/storms will pass. The best threat for severe weather 
after Tuesday evening still looks like locally heavy rain owing to 
the high moisture content of the air mass. Temperatures will be a category 
or so above normal each day...but well above normal at night because 
of the moist air mass. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 150 PM EDT Monday...the medium range forecast picks up at 00z on 
Friday with broad upper ridging over the region with various lobes 
of embedded upper shortwave energy to our north and northwest. The overall 
synoptic pattern does not change appreciably over the southeast region through 
the remainder of the medium range with upper ridging weaken a bit on 
days 6 and 7. This coincides with the approach of a Central Plains 
upper shortwave by the end of the period next Monday. The European model (ecmwf) is a 
bit faster with its approach compared to the newer run of the 
GFS...however the timing differences are less than 24hrs. 


At the surface...we will be under the influence of the Bermuda high through 
most of the period. This will allow moist southerly low level flow over the 
region with some minor low to middle level drying expected on Sat and 
sun. The models generate an elongated cold front to our northwest on Sat. 
This front is associated with a surface low that deepens as it moves NE 
of the Great Lakes. The progression of the frontal zone slows as it 
pushes farther south and appears to essentially lay up just to our 
north on sun and Monday as the Bermuda high prevents it from moving 
farther south. The GFS tries to spin up another low over the central 
miss River Valley on sun...yet it becomes reabsorbed back into the 
Bermuda high over the next 48 hours or so. At present...the European model (ecmwf) is 
less bullish with the low development. As for the sensible forecast...no 
major changes were needed. We can expect a typical summertime 
diurnally driven convection pattern with good chances for widespread 
showers and ts each day with somewhat reduced chances on Sat and sun 
over the southeastern zones. Well organized convection still looks 
unlikely with weak shear/helicity values anticipated. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...moist southerly flow will ramp up this morning on the west 
side of a Bermuda high. Most guidance forecasts low stratus forming by 
daybreak...with consensus now suggesting it will bottom out at the 
low end of MVFR. This is plausible as a steady south wind should 
keep the surface layer mixed enough to keep IFR at Bay. The stratus will 
slowly lift to VFR by midday...with a healthy cumulus field quickly 
replacing it. Precipitation chances increase through the afternoon as diurnal 
instability develops...with best chances after 00z when shortwaves 
are expected to pass overhead. Prob30 thus shifted a bit toward the 
end of the period. Restrictions will be possible again overnight. 


Elsewhere... looks like most precipitation will remain near kavl this 
morning with low chance elsehwere. Cells nearing kavl result in the 
need for an early tempo for thunderstorms and rain. Otherwise...better chance for 
restrictions with MVFR likely and IFR possible all areas given the 
moist low level southerly flow. That said...chance of convection will 
increase later today with good chance late in the afternoon into the 
early evening. Prob30 and thunderstorms in the vicinity have been added/adjusted. The moist 
low level flow should bring in low MVFR to IFR ceilings at all sites between 
midnight and sunrise. The low ceilings should mix out by 16-17z. 
Additional restrictions likely by late evening. 


Outlook...S to SW flow moisture will continue to stream across the 
terminal forecast area through the week. Expect increased morning 
stratus to result...with better than climatological chances of 
afternoon/evening rain showers/thunderstorms and rain each day. However...passing upper level 
disturbances could generate a few thunderstorms at other times of the day.
