NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
316 am EDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will linger across the region early this week. Weak 
disturbances may ripple across the lower and middle appalachian 
region by middle to late week. A cool and moist area of high pressure 
is expected to settle across the western Carolinas and northeast 
Georgia this weekend into early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 245 am EDT...infrared satellite imagery shows a few patches of 
stratocumulus fanned out under a middle level subsidence inversion. 
This cloud layer should not become widespread enough to have much 
impact on daybreak fog development. Still anticipate the best 
fog/low cloud chances in the mountain river valleys...but model 
profiles also feature some patchy stratus in the Piedmont as well. 


Otherwise...upper heights will generally build over the southeast today 
before falling a bit from the north tonight as a wave gets picked up 
over the Ohio Valley and carried eastward. Surface high pressure will 
remain centered along the Appalachians to the north of the forecast 
area. Water vapor imagery continues to show persistent tropical 
moisture extending from central Florida to the extreme southeast coastline...but 
moisture will be much sparser in profiles over our forecast area. 
Given the warm temperatures aloft and weak instability in model 
profiles...expect a repeat of mainly isolated to scattered weak 
mountain Ridgetop convection this afternoon and early evening. Maximum 
temperatures should return to 90 degrees for a good chunk of the 
foothills/Piedmont...with mild mins expected tonight. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
as of 245 am Tuesday...on Wednesday...the center of a 500 mb ridge is 
forecast to remain over Florida as a short wave trough ripples southeast across the 
virginas and NC. GFS indicates that the center of the vorticity maximum 
within the short wave will pass north of the forecast area. However...it 
appears that a portion of the northern NC foothills will fall under 
a region of q-vector convergence. Forecast soundings show the 
greatest instability will develop in the vicinity of the short wave...with 
cape values ranging from 1500-2000 j/kg. Given the wide field of 
instability...late afternoon passage of the short wave...and moderate storm 
motions...it appears thunderstorms and rain coverage will favor the NC zones. I will 
forecast chance probability of precipitation across the mountains and adjacent NC foothills...with 
schc to the southeast. High temperatures are forecast to range from 
the middle 80s within the mountain valleys to low 90s east. 


On Thursday...surface high pressure should build across the County Warning Area from the 
northwest. Using a blend of preferred guidance...afternoon dewpoints 
should range generally in the middle 60s. Forecast soundings indicate a 
deep inverted-v profile...with weak cape values across the region. I 
will indicate schc probability of precipitation along and north of I-85...with a few patches 
of chance probability of precipitation across the ridges. High temperatures may range 2-3 
degrees above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 3 am Tuesday...using a blend of the European model (ecmwf) and GFS...a longwave 
middle level ridge should build across the Great Lakes on Friday...then 
pivoting across New England and strengthening to 595 dm during the 
weekend. A broad middle level low is expected to gradually form over 
the southeast to deep south over the weekend and Monday. 


On Friday...the center of a surface high will develop over New 
England...with a increase of ridging arriving over the County Warning Area during 
the afternoon. I will forecast increasing cloud cover through the 
daylight hours Friday. Model convective available potential energy indicate that weak to moderate 
instability will develop with high temperatures reaching around 2 degrees 
above normal. Probability of precipitation should verify well with chance probability of precipitation across the County Warning Area. 
Surface winds should veer from the NE during the late afternoon. 


The medium range models indicate that the cold air damming pattern 
will peak during this weekend. In fact...the GFS indicates that 
Piedmont winds will strengthen to marginally gusty NE winds after 
sunrise. The NE winds...broken to overcast sky cover...scattered 
shra/tsra...should provide cooler temperatures on Saturday. The 2m 
temperatures from the European model (ecmwf) and GFS have high temperatures in the middle to 
upper 70s on Sat. I will cool high for Sat...but will should temperatures 
generally 5 degree warmer than the raw model values. On Sunday...NE 
winds appear as strong as Sat...but cloud cover appears a degree 
thinner. High temperatures will remain below normal...but likely 2 to 3 
degrees warmer than Sat. On Monday...the surface high center shifts over 
the western Atlantic...resulting in weaker winds across the region. 
I will limit chance probability of precipitation to the mountains and foothills. Highs temperatures may 
range within a couple of degrees of normal on Monday. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...stratocumulus trapped under a middle level subsidence 
inversion has generally thinned out to the west of the airfield. 
Less overnight clouds may increase the chance of daybreak low 
stratus and fog as hinted in the model profiles. However...the MOS 
is quite reserved on morning restrictions so will not mention for 
now. VFR cumulus will redevelop with heating on Wednesday. Light northwest winds 
early will turn around the dial toward srly through the day. 


Elsewhere...patchy stratocumulus under the middle level inversion will 
persist aloft. The best chance of morning low stratus and fog will 
be in the mountain river valleys...affecting kavl. VFR cumulus 
should develop with heating today. Profiles do not exhibit much 
instability...but instability and coverage will be best near kavl 
where a prob30 will be advertised. Expect light winds 
throughout...with more north to NE flow in western NC and more srly flow at 
the upstate taf sites. 


Outlook...a plume of Gulf and Atlantic moisture will continue to 
wrap up along the southeast coast through the week. Restrictions are 
possible during periods of any scattered showers or thunderstorms. 
In addition...low clouds and fog may develop each night...especially 
in the mountain valleys.
