NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1026 am EDT Sat may 23 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry Canadian high pressure will linger atop the region through the 
Holiday weekend. A southerly flow of moisture around Bermuda high 
pressure will gradually return next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1025 am EDT Saturday...beautiful day unfolding across the 
region with temperatures slowly rising into the upper 60s to lower 
70s with low relative humidity under a few high level cirrus. Winds are still 
expected to increase into the 5-7kts range this afternoon all the 
while veering southeast as the primary surface ridge shifts east. 
Thus...current forecast looks good with no changes needed/made with this 
update. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 230 am...an upper ridge will continue to build along a 
negatively-tilted axis from Florida to to Minnesota. The height rises atop the 
County warning forecast area will help keep things dry with sunny to mostly sunny skies. The 
center of surface high pressure will shift from the central Appalachians 
this morning...to just off the middle Atlantic coast tonight. So with 
flow turning out of the southeast...temperatures will be a category or two 
warmer today than yesterday...still about a category below normal 
for most locations. Lows tonight under mostly clear skies will be 
near normal. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 150 am Saturday...dry weather will continue on Sunday as upper ridge 
axis continues to build atop the southeast Continental U.S.. low level flow around Bermuda 
hipres will steadily advect higher temperatures and dewpoints into the 
southern Appalachians. Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer than 
Saturday topping out a few degrees above normal. The upper pattern 
evolves slowly on Monday with the ridge axis sharpening and moving 
east closer to the coast. This combined with a steady increase in 
low level moisture due to the increasing southerly flow around the 
weakening ridge axis of the surface Bermuda high will create increasing 
instability and chance of mainly diurnal convection. Best chance will be 
across the NC mountains...NE Georgia and upstate west of I-26...with little to 
no chance over the I-77 corridor where the suppressive effects of the 
ridge continue. Highs Monday remain nearly steady west and rise a 
couple of degrees east. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 255 am Sat...the medium range continues to look Summer-like 
with an upper ridge axis along the Atlantic coast and a surface Bermuda 
high across the southeast keeping a generally moist flow from the Gulf and 
Atlantic at low levels across the County warning forecast area. This will favor above normal 
temperatures and mainly diurnal showers and storms each day. The GFS 
continues to forecast the ridge breaking down late in the period 
allowing short wave energy and a weak cold front to move into the 
area. The European model (ecmwf) continues to forecast the upper ridge/Bermuda high 
pattern right through the forecast period. Given the discrepancy...have 
trended toward the more steady European model (ecmwf) forecast. Convective coverage will 
be higher across the mountains and western County warning forecast area each day where better 
moisture and instability remain farther from the upper ridge axis. 
The chances for severe thunderstorms each day look minimal at this 
point because of poor lapse rates and relatively weak instability 
with middle level warm air. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...no major changes for the 12z tafs. The 
center of dry high pressure will shift from the Appalachians to the 
East Coast today...keeping dry air in place...but shifting the winds 
from NE to southeast by this afternoon. Winds should remain light...picking up to 
around 5-7 knots this afternoon. Other than a few periods of cirrus...not 
expecting any other clouds or fog at any of the taf sites through 
tonight. 


Outlook...high pressure will shift east off the East Coast early 
next week...allowing moisture to gradually return out of the south. 
Conditions should remain generally fair through the period.
