NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
804 PM EDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain across the southeast region...before a 
cold front pushes in from the northwest Saturday night. This front 
will become stationary across the Carolinas and northeast Georgia 
through Tuesday. Canadian high pressure will then build into the 
area and persist through Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
as of 800 PM EDT Friday...again only minor tweaks to hourly 
grids...but nothing substantive to warrant any product updates. Main 
grid updates were for aviation purposes. 


Otherwise...dry and unseasonably warm weather will continue through 
tonight... as cirrus gradually increases and perhaps thickens a bit 
downstream of miss valley convective complex. Min temperatures tonight will 
once again average about 10 degrees above climatology. 


By Saturday morning...an area of surface high pressure centered near 
Hudson Bay...and extending over much of eastern Canada and the 
northeast Continental U.S. Is expected to force a back door cold front through 
the middle-Atlantic and through much of North Carolina by Sat 
afternoon. As usual...exactly how far southwest this boundary 
penetrates into our forecast area is the subject of much uncertainty 
at this point. Increasing low-level southerly flow developing in 
response to large scale height falls to our west will result in weak 
isentropic lift north of the boundary...which could support some 
precipitation development by late in the day. 


Of larger concern will be what happens in the warm sector Sat 
afternoon. It appears appreciable moisture/clouds will hold off 
until late in the day...while dewpoints will be on the increase 
throughout the day. Meanwhile...respectable middle-level lapse rates of 
around 6.5 c/km are expected across the region Sat afternoon. Warm 
sector instability is therefore expected to become pretty 
respectable by the end of the day...with SBCAPE likely reaching the 
1500-2000 j/kg range across the western half of the area by late 
afternoon. Meanwhile...as a middle-level short wave ridge pushes 
northeast of the area...weak large scale lift will increase...with 
short term guidance depicting the approach of a short wave trough. 
As this occurs...at least scattered convection should develop along 
the boundary and across the high terrain by late afternoon. Probability of precipitation in 
the 40-60 percent range (highest across the west) will be featured 
during this time. Wind fields will be increasing throughout the 
day...with deep layer shear increasing to 35-40 kts by the end of 
the day. While helicity will be relatively weak in a large scale 
sense...enhanced helicity will exist along the surface 
boundary...possibly supporting a weak tornado threat with any cells 
crossing the boundary. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Friday...the short term forecast period kicks off 
Saturday evening with broad upper ridging over the southeast...while 
an 500 mb cyclone rotates over the Central Plains. At the 
surface...cyclogenesis is expected beneath said 500 mb low with a cold 
front extending southward through central Texas...while an east/west 
oriented warm front extends across the Tennessee/Ohio valleys. 
Meanwhile...high pressure over New England will likely weaken and 
slide out to sea effectively forcing The Retreat of a weak cad wedge 
over much of northeast Georgia and the western Carolinas...especially as 
the warm front surges north. Thus...am expecting ongoing convection 
to continue through the early/middle evening hours amongst the building 
warm sector...while weak upglide could allow for rain showers north of the 
front. 


Moving along...the warm front will have pushed through the entire 
forecast area by Sunday thereby allowing the region to sit firmly in the 
warm sector as the associated cold front crosses the MS River 
Valley. Guidance continues to favor convective initiation through 
the day as heating leads to destabilization. Steep low/middle level 
lapse rates and abundant dry air aloft yield forecast soundings that are 
somewhat impressive with convective available potential energy approaching/exceeding 2k j/kg with 
deep layer shear in the 25-30kts range. Therefore wouldnt be 
surprised to see scattered/numerous thunderstorms and rain with some cells reaching 
strong/severe limits on Sunday with large hail and damaging winds 
being the primary threats...with localized heavy rainfall as a 
secondary threat. Monday looks fairly similar to Sunday however with 
a bit weaker shearing and steering flow albeit still fairly unstable 
ahead of the approaching cold front...therefore isolated/scattered 
thunderstorms and rain looks possible over region. In summary...the forecast features 
widespread elevated chance/likely probability of precipitation on Sunday...lowering to 
chance levels for Monday. Temperatures through the period will 
hover a few degrees above normal on average. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
at 230 PM Friday, on Monday night zonal upper flow will be over the 
southeast USA, while an upper trough will extend from eastern Canada 
to the midwestern USA, and an upper ridge will be over western 
Canada and the western USA. The upper trough amplifies over the 
eastern USA by Wednesday, progressing closer to the East Coast by 
Friday while the ridge upstream reaches the plains. 


At the surface, a cold front will depart the western Carolinas and 
northeast Georgia on Monday night, moving off the Carolina coast by 
Tuesday morning. The western end of this front stalls near the Gulf 
Coast. Moist flow over this boundary will support continuing 
precipitation over our area. On Wednesday a surface wave moving 
along the front will reach the lower Savannah River valley, and 
moist flow ahead of this system will keep precipitation going over 
our area. Precipitation will finally end late on Thursday, as 
another front moves over the southern Appalachians from the 
northwest and brings drier air into our area. Temperatures will 
initially exhibit a reduced diurnal range due to moisture associated 
with the stalled front and approaching surface wave. Temperatures 
will fall to slightly below normal in the wake of the second cold 
front. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR overnight with just some increasing high 
clouds...and light SW winds. Saturday morning...damming builds in 
from the NE with increasing low-level moisture...plus increasing 
moisture from the system approaching from the west. For kclt and 
khky...have introduced MVFR ceilings Saturday morning with winds 
swinging around to the NE...and especially at khky cannot rule out 
brief IFR. Instability will increase during the day so have 
introduced prob30 -tsra for all but kavl. Winds should veer to southeast by 
afternoon everywhere. 


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.
