NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
204 PM EDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a broad upper level trough will remain over the southeast through 
the weekend...steering a series of weak low pressure systems over 
the region. These systems will increase rain and thunderstorm 
chances each afternoon and evening. High temperatures will be near 
normal through next week...with lows just above normal. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 145 PM EDT...an outflow from earlier convection working 
southward over the western third of the County warning forecast area is finally encountering 
more instability...with 1500 to 2000 j/kg of SBCAPE over the western 
upstate and NE Georgia this afternoon. Probability of precipitation have been ratcheted up over the 
this area for a few hours this afternoon...and have backed away from 
the higher probability of precipitation previously indicated by the mesocale models for 
convection coming off the Blue Ridge into the NC foothills and 
Piedmont. This is possibly just the first wave of many...as 
additional shortwaves embedded in the 500 mb trough will cross the 
forecast area later this afternoon and early this evening. 


Yet more vorticity lobes will cross the base of the southern 
Appalachians later tonight through Friday as the trough deepens to 
the west from the lower Ohio Valley to the MS River Valley. Westerly 
850 mb flow will increase tonight through Friday across the southern tier as 
the 850 mb low center deepens slightly over the Ohio Valley. The 
forecast area will stay solidly warm sector through the near term 
period as a surface wave moves along the stalled boundary from the 
lower Ohio Valley through the central Appalachians. Anticipate a 
smaller than usual diurnal range on temperatures with plenty of 
clouds/debris...and will need to shotgun high chance to low end 
likely probability of precipitation for much of the area beyond the immediate near term 
given the multiple shortwaves and moist profiles. Expect gusty winds 
with mixing again on Friday afternoon. Heavy rain will pose a localized 
Hydro threat just about anywhere that training occurs...with the SW 
mountains standing the best chance of flooding. Confidence remains too 
low for a Flash Flood Watch since coverage will be highest in the 
western mountains but rates will be better in more unstable areas. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Saturday night/... 
of 240 am Thursday...the short term forecast picks up at 12z on 
Friday with the upper trough flattening out while numerous lobes of 
shortwave energy stream across the forecast area from the west. 


On Friday...deep layer moisture will be in place over the region Friday 
morning as a complex surface low develops just to the north. As the low 
slowly moves towards the coast...another Lee trough will set up over 
the Carolinas late Friday and linger well into Sat. Probability of precipitation steadily ramp 
up through the day/evening with high end chance to likely values 
carried over the entire County warning forecast area by the afternoon. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts have been 
lowered a bit since yesterdays forecast...however a solid inch or so is 
possible over some of the upslope areas and higher terrain. Storm Prediction Center 
keeps our County warning forecast area in the marginal risk area with the biggest threat 
being severe straight line winds. As we move into Sat...the surface 
low begins to move off the coast and another Lee trough develops in 
its wake keeping winds out of the SW and tightening the pressure 
gradient. Precipitable water values will remain high through Sat...so flash flooding 
continues to be a concern going forward. Temperatures start out about 2 to 
4 degrees below climatology on Friday and warm a few degrees over the next 
few days ending right around normal for early July. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
of 240 am Thursday...the medium range forecast picks up at 12z on 
Sunday with heights rising as broad upper ridging develops over much 
of the southern Continental U.S.. the models generate numerous weak upper 
shortwaves through the period with weak upper winds prevailing through day 
7. No significant pattern changes are expected through the medium range 
with ridging remaining in place well beyond day 7. At the surface...the 
region will remain unsettled through most of the period with prevailing 
south to southwesterly low level flow. The County warning forecast area is expected to remain under 
weak Lee troffing on sun and Monday as a series of short lived mesoscale 
lows attempt to spin up over the Carolinas. The long range guidance 
suggests that a more substantial front will approach the forecast area 
from the west on Wednesday and Thursday...however the strength and timing of 
the system is unclear. The models agree that deeper layer moisture will 
persist over the region through most of the period with the highest precipitable water 
values generally over the northern zones early in the period and 
then shifting southward on Monday and Tuesday. As for the sensible 
forecast...I kept diurnal high end chances for convection each 
day/evening with some likely probability of precipitation over the NC/tenn border region for 
sun. Temperatures start out around climatology on sun and warm slightly 
over the next few days with highs topping out just above climatology by 
early next week. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...convection developing on the early day mesoscale convective system outflow is 
extending east toward the kclt vicinity this afternoon. The current tempo 
thunderstorms and rain from 19z still looks well timed with associated MVFR 
restrictions under any heavy thunder showers. Anticipate low end 
gusts in both the gradient flow with mixing and in any thunderstorms with 
limited dcape. The NAM remains most bullish on overnight MVFR clouds 
developing...but the MOS remains unexcited. Will hold off for now 
given the likelihood of considerable middle/high debris clouds. Given 
the multiple passing shortwaves...showers or isolated thunderstorms will 
continue to possible at just about any time overnight through Friday 
morning...but with a better chance from middle morning on Friday. 


Elsewhere...tempo thunderstorms and rain with 20 to 30 knots gusts looks highly likely at 
the upstate sites along the outflow line this afternoon...with precipitation 
generally more showers from kavl to khky. Anticipate continued 
rounds of showers with passing upper shortwaves tonight through 
Friday morning...with scattered thunderstorms possible at any time as well. 
We could see a repeat of spotty low stratus again Friday morning given 
all the moisture around...but there will also be plenty of middle/high 
debris clouds. Will confine the overnight restrictions to kavl and 
khky for now. Expect upstate taf sites to start gusting again late 
in the period as mixing gradually improves and 850 mb westerly winds 
increase. 


Outlook...a gradually weakening upper trough will support mainly 
afternoon and evening thunderstorms through early next week. 
Restrictions may occur with passing storms...and each morning over 
rain soaked areas.
