NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
536 PM EDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Synopsis... 
a moist warm front lifts through the area this evening...bringing 
more rounds of heavy rain. A cold front will then cross the area on 
Monday...ushering in seasonable temperatures and dry conditions 
through midweek. Another cold front will push in from the northwest 
on Thursday...possibly bringing showers back to the area...before 
drier high pressure returns Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 530 PM...a line of moderate to heavy rain will sweep across 
the clt metropolitan area by 6 PM. Rainfall rates will approach 2 inches 
per hour...clt metropolitan streams have previously peaked and stream flows 
remain high. However...the coming rainfall will likely result in 
flash flooding across the metropolitan area...with Mallard 
creek...Briar...and Long Creek poised for the quickest rise to flood 
stage. In addition...severe winds may occur with the main line section 
lifting from the middle lands. Severe threat east of Laurens Colorado has passed 
and removed from Tornado Watch 79. 


As of 245 PM EDT Sunday...primary upper low that has been centered 
over The Four Corners for nearly a week has finally opened up...and 
it sliding northeast through the Central Plains. A potent shortwave 
that ejected from said 500 mb low is moving through the Tennessee Valley region 
at this time. At the surface...a weak cyclone migrating through the 
Ohio Valley continues to push a warm front across the southeast. 
Latest surface analysis indicates the warm front advecting east through 
north Georgia with a vast precipitation shield extending into the western 
Carolinas. Models continue to forecast convection moving across the 
forecast area this afternoon thus probability of precipitation remain at Cat levels. As for 
severe...latest Storm Prediction Center mesoscale analysis indicates modest destabilization 
to the south along the i20 corridor with a fringe of enhanced SBCAPE 
extending northward into portions of northeast Georgia and the 
western upstate. Shear profiles remain supportive of at least an 
isolated tornado threat if any updrafts become well organized. That 
said...the window for such enhancement is narrow...and will close as 
the primary shortwave ejects north. Current thinking is that any 
flooding concerns will remain isolated and confined to any of the 
heaviest convective elements. Probability of precipitation will decrease into the evening 
after the current Flood Watch expires at 8pm. 


For Monday...the primary focus continues to be a cold front passage 
associated with a potent negatively tilted upper trough axis. 
Guidance has converged on a fairly good consensus that the front will 
slide into the mountains by middle/late morning with modest 
destabilization in the warm sector across northeast Georgia and the NC/SC 
Piedmont and foothills. Forecast soundings feature impressive thermal 
profiles with steep lapse rates supported by ample dry air aloft. 
Although low level flow is not as backed on Monday as it is 
today...long right turning hodographs are still in place. Thus the forecast 
features solid chance probability of precipitation across the entire forecast area to account 
for afternoon convection. Expecting storm modes to remain linear 
for the most part...but cant rule out a few discrete cells ahead of 
the main line. With any of these stronger storms expecting the 
primary threats to damaging winds...large hail...and isolated 
tornadoes. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 1240 PM Sunday...convective chances will linger into middle- 
evening or so on Monday...mainly across eastern areas...as cold 
front slides toward central NC/the SC midlands...and across the NC 
mountains...where a developing northwest flow could result in a few straggling 
showers near the tenn border. After that...the remainder of the 
short term period will offer a welcome change from the past week or 
so: seasonably mild...and more importantly...dry...as a broad/low 
amplitude long wave trough becomes established over the eastern 
Continental U.S.. a short wave trough rounding the base of an upper low over 
the Great Lakes region is expected to introduce a frontal boundary 
to the region by the end of the period...resulting in increasing 
probability of precipitation by Wednesday afternoon...but it does not appear that anything more 
than slight/low chances are warranted at this time. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of midday Sunday...longwave upper trough with embedded closed low 
will persist over eastern Canada and the northern tier of the eastern Continental U.S. 
Through the medium range period. A vorticity lobe rotating around the low 
will allow a weak surface low to spin up over the NE Continental U.S. And drag a 
fairly weak cold front southward through the southern Appalachians on Thursday. 
Moisture is generally lacking...but lapse rates are marginal. Some 
convective activity could develop ahead of the front...and on 
account of the sharp height gradient around the trough producing 
decent shear parameters...and with dry upper levels...severe weather is 
not out of the question with cells that do fire. Coverage however 
will likely be low. 


High pressure briefly returns to the area Friday before a shortwave 
crosses the southern rockies...and moisture returns to the southeast 
ahead of the ensuing surface system. Precipitable waters  again surge to near record 
values Sat morning over the upstate...being significantly elevated 
throughout the County warning forecast area. A jet streak on the southern fringe of the upper 
trough concurrently brings significant upper divergence across the 
area. Widespread heavy rain will likely be of some concern. Precipitation 
may continue into Saturday night before tapering off...especially with the 
19/00z ec depicting a trailing shortwave bringing another round of 
precipitation at that time. High pressure should return to the area Sunday 
and keep US dry into Monday. 


Temperatures will generally be at or below normal through the period with 
abnormally low thicknesses under the trough. 


&& 


Aviation /22z Sunday through Friday/... 
at kclt...VFR/MVFR and IFR restrictions will prevail at times 
through this taf cycle as warm front and upper wave slides through 
the region. Initialized taf at MVFR levels as current precipitation is 
sliding east of the airfield. Did adjust previous tempos to 21-01z 
timeframe to account for the next round of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain with LIFR ceilings. 
From that point carried vcsh at 02z with LIFR ceilings as the boundary 
layers settles behind exiting precipitation. Removed all weather mention by 04z 
with continued LIFR ceilings...ahead of MVFR visb introduction at 09z to 
account for guidance favoring some patchy fog across the NC Piedmont. 
Last group is at 13z with continued modest SW winds at 10kts and broken 
MVFR ceilings along with a prob30 at 16z for thunderstorms and rain as the primary cold 
front approaches the region. Conditions continue to look very 
unstable tomorrow ahead of the front with enough shear present to 
support severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and hail being the 
primary threats. 


Elsewhere...much the same as kclt above with timing adjustment to 
account for multiple rounds of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain sliding through the region 
associated with a warm front. Tafs initialize with some form of weather 
mention as next round of precipitation moves in from the west. Ceilings/visb 
will remain restricted at all sites through the afternoon with 
tempos mentioned to account for thunderstorms and rain. Low visb/ceilings will prevail 
into the morning with patchy fog possible as precipitation diminishes with 
heating loss by early/middle morning. Forecast continues to feature thunderstorms in the vicinity 
mention for convection late in the period on Monday ahead of a cold 
front. 


Outlook...a cold front will sweep through the region on Monday with 
strong to severe thunderstorms being a possibility. Restrictions 
will be likely at times on Monday for all sites. High pressure will 
build in behind the cold front leading to lower precipitation/restriction 
chances. 


Confidence table...
