NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
233 PM EDT sun may 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain across the region through the middle of 
the work week. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible 
each afternoon over the mountains...with chances improving across 
the Piedmont Thursday when a weak cold front moves in from the 
north. Temperatures will rise to above normal levels...with highs 
topping out in the lower to middle 80s the latter half of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT...an upper level shortwave moving east of the Ohio 
Valley late this afternoon has spawned scattered showers back across 
Kentucky. This wave will move through the central/southern Appalachians late 
this afternoon...with the best DPVA crossing the northern half of the forecast 
area through 22z. A 500 mb cold pocket in the upper thermal trough 
will cross the northern tier overnight...which could keep isolated showers 
going along the Interstate 40 corridor where lapse rates will be 
steepest. Will feature mainly mountain isolated to scattered probability of precipitation for late 
afternoon...then push isolated shower probability of precipitation east into the western NC Piedmont 
into the early morning hours. Instability remains weak...and some 
measure of capping is found in radiosonde observation and model profiles at 10 to 12 
kft...so will only mention showers for now. Expect a scattered to 
broken middle deck of clouds to persist overnight under the weak capping 
layer...with warmer min temperatures mainly in the 50s/High Mountain upper 40s. 


The center of the southeast surface high pressure will move farther offshore 
overnight through Monday...with Bermuda high pressure dominating the 
region. Model profiles exhibit less capping aloft on Monday 
afternoon...and light srly upslope flow should persist around the 
Atlantic ridge. Will thus feature slightly better scattered mountain 
coverage for Monday afternoon. Maximum temperatures will recover another couple 
of degrees above Sunday values in most areas. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 200 PM Sunday...Bermuda high and southeastern Continental U.S. Upper ridge will 
remain dominant during the middle of the week. Diurnally driven 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will return Tuesday and Wednesday mainly over the higher 
terrain. The ridge appears to reach a peak on Tuesday before coming 
under the influence of a backdoor cold front sinking through the 
middle-Atlantic to our north...and developing low pressure near the 
Bahamas. Low level flow turns more toward east or NE for Wednesday. Though 
this appears to have little impact on dewpoints or instability...it 
may mean the focus of convection shifts from southern facing slopes to eastern 
facing ones. Thicknesses tick upward from Tuesday to Wednesday and model maximum 
temperatures follow. Shear remains quite weak and cells will be 
slow-moving...being capable of locally heavy rain particularly on 
Tuesday. For Wednesday the upper levels will have dried out quite a bit as 
drier air is wrapped around the high...reducing the likelihood of 
heavy rainfall but enhancing downburst potential. Severe chances are 
nonzero but look low enough not to mention in the severe weather potential statement at this 
issuance...mainly in light of the modest instability. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 200 PM Sunday...backdoor cold front moves southward into NC on 
Thursday as low pressure spins over the Atlantic between the Outer 
Banks and the Bahamas. Easterly flow into the County warning forecast area is maintained into 
Friday mainly by high pressure on the north side of the boundary. Model 
differences are rather significant beyond that. 03/12z GFS is 
consistent with the previous couple runs in taking the low into the 
Georgia coast...while the 03/00z ec and Gem track it to the Cape Fear area 
instead. GFS more clearly shows an interaction between the front and 
the low near the NC/SC coast. It depicts the high remaining in 
control Friday with relatively stable air in place...before the low 
moves westward and initiates warm advection into the western Carolinas by Sat 
morning. The more eastern track depicted on the ec/Gem solutions brings 
little to no low level forcing into the area. Given the model 
differences as well as the middle-upper ridge remaining strong over the 
region...sensible weather effects from the coastal low may be limited this 
far inland. Confidence is below average...but for now it appears probability of precipitation 
will continue to reflect a notable diurnal signal. Cloud cover will 
be a bit more than otherwise would be expected beneath a ridge. Temperatures 
will be a couple categories above climatology. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Sunday through Friday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will continue through the 
period with scattered to broken high based stratocumulus from 
daytime heating and a middle level nocturnal inversion. Bases should be 
mainly 7 to 8 kft the rest of the afternoon through tonight...lowering 
with recovering dewpoints to 5 to 6 kft on Monday. Surface winds will 
remain southerly around the coastal/offshore high pressure...generally 
10 knots or less during the daylight...and light overnight. Coverage of 
any rain showers should be too low to mention...but mountain coverage will likely 
pick up on Monday afternoon to possibly approach kavl just beyond the taf 
period. 


Outlook...return flow moisture will continue to redevelop across the 
terminal forecast area through middle week. Isolated to scattered diurnal 
convection is expected each day...mainly over the mountains...with 
southerly flow continuing through at least Wednesday.
