NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
510 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
southerly flow induced by a persistent Bermuda high will continue to 
promote diurnal showers and thunderstorms through much of the week. 
A frontal passage will occur on Tuesday evening into Wednesday 
morning with another front passing through over the weekend leading 
to enhanced shower and thunderstorm chances for those periods. High 
pressure will once again regain control by early next week behind 
the above mentioned front resulting in cooler temperatures 
and more settled weather. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
as of 500 PM...triggering off the Blue Ridge this afternoon along with 
westerly steering flow has permitted a few thunderstorms and rain to survive across 
the adjacent NC foothills. Probability of precipitation will be boosted slightly out into 
the NC Piedmont through early evening on the strength of any 
outflows that form. Otherwise...most isolated to scattered convection will 
form in the terrain induced triggering over the mountains...mainly over 
the smokies and southern mountains of NC and north Georgia. The mesoscale 
model consensus generally favors the smokies and balsams...and 
downplays the chances farther southeast. 


Over the next 24 hours...the upper ridge across the southeast will 
be flattened further by the passage of a short wave up the Ohio Valley 
late tonight and early Tuesday. However...the closest this feature 
will come is a chunk of energy brushing past the northern mountains this 
evening. At that early time...there will be little for this wave to 
work with. Although it may enhance the chance of convection a bit... it 
does not look like we will have anything more than isolated to scattered 
showers and storms mainly over the higher terrain. The wave passes 
early enough that any storms should die off with loss of heating. 
Thereafter...perhaps some dense fog again in some of the mountain 
valleys. Lows should be seasonally mild again. 


On Tuesday...still not much happening at middle levels...but there 
could be some weak upper divergence as the jet streak passes well to 
the north. The models are a bit more robust with convective precipitation 
coverage owing to some improved surface based instability by the 
afternoon. So...the trend of having a higher pop for Tuesday 
afternoon still looks like a good one...as does reaching a few 
degrees higher for the high temperature. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
as of 2 PM Monday...short range models indicate that a 
weakening middle level short wave will ripple over the region Tuesday 
night. The combination of the passage of middle level disturbance and 
lingering weak instability should support isolated to scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain into 
Wednesday morning. Low temperatures are forecast to range from the 
middle 60s within the mountain valleys to the low 70s east of the mountains on 
Wednesday...middle level heights are forecast to slow rise across the 
region...sourced from a ridge centered over the deep south. Models 
indicate that remnant vorticity may linger across the western 
Carolinas through the daylight hours Wednesday. Forecast sounding 
show weak to moderate cape developing by middle afternoon...with little 
to no low level shear. The environment should favor scattered to num convection 
across the ridges during the afternoon and evening...with scattered 
convection east. A blend of favored MOS supports highs from the middle 
80s within the mountain valleys to low 90s east of I-85. 


On Thursday...surface high pressure will become centered across the Middle 
Atlantic States...resulting in weak southeast low level flow. 500 mb heights 
across the forecast area will likely rise above 590 dm. Forecast 
soundings indicate a weak subsidence inversion developing during the 
afternoon around h6. Afternoon convective available potential energy will likely range from from 
1500-2000 j/kg across the region. Cin values may erode during the 
heat of the afternoon. The NAM limits convection to the high terrain 
as the GFS appears much wetter across the foothills and Piedmont. I 
will take a compromise of both solutions...forecasting 40 to 50 probability of precipitation 
across the mountains to 30 to 40 probability of precipitation across the foothills and Piedmont. 
I will forecast high temperatures 2 to 3 degrees above normal...but 
slightly cooler than Wednesday due to greater coverage of convection. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Monday...an upper ridge will weaken over the region 
Thursday night into Sat as the center of 500 mb high retrogrades toward the 
western Continental U.S. While a northern stream upper trough digs into the 
Great Lakes region. The trough is expected to progress eastward to 
the Middle Atlantic States through sun and off the eastern Seaboard by 
Monday. 


At the surface...a Bermuda high pressure will remain in place through 
Friday night resulting in persistent moist S/southeast flow and slightly above 
normal temperatures. Despite the upper ridging...moist profile and moderate 
diurnal buoyancy should overcome the weakly capped aloft leading to 
low end to solid chance probability of precipitation for diurnally driven convection. Sat 
and sun...models have come into better agreement with the timing of 
the frontal passage late Sat into early sun. The main concern during this 
period will be heavy rainfall due to the combination of slow passage 
of the front...moist profile and good buoyancy. Both the GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) depict healthy quantitative precipitation forecast response over the mountains Sat and over much of 
the County Warning Area on sun. Therefore...have updated probability of precipitation to increase to around 
30-50 on Sat and 40-60 on sun. Monday...drier and cooler conditions 
expected as the front stays south of the area and a wedge of surface 
high builds in from the NE. Temperatures will remain slightly above 
normal Thursday into sun and cools down by 5-10 degrees by Monday. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Monday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...isolated thunderstorms over the NC foothills this afternoon are 
diminishing as they move eastward. A few showers may survive into 
the vicinity through 01z this evening...but thunderstorm triggers near the 
airfield remain hard to find unless a potent outflow can survive 
there. Have added some cumulus and vcsh to the forecast but the rest 
of tonight and tomorrow looks good. Expect wind to remain fairly 
light from the west-southwest. The clouds should thin out a bit overnight with 
a light south-southwest wind. Some potential for fog exists across the 
Piedmont...but chances are too low to mention in the taf. On 
Tuesday...expect a similar situation...with wind coming up from the 
SW after the boundary layer warms around 13z to 14z. 


Elsewhere...afternoon thunderstorms and rain have flirted with khky...but are generally 
missing the airfield. The SC taf sites will see similar conditions 
to kclt with generally no nearby triggers despite the late day 
instability. Kavl remains the best chance of isolated rain showers or thunderstorms and rain 
through middle evening but with nothing worse that thunderstorms in the vicinity at present. 
Late tonight...expect another round of valley fog...at least down 
into the IFR range...after 07z. This could very well go LIFR or 
vlifr...but that will not be used in the forecast yet. The fog should 
burn off again around 13z. 


Outlook...generally VFR conditions are expected through most of the 
week...but restrictions are possible early each morning due to low 
clouds and fog...primarily in the mountain valleys. Diurnally driven 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain are expected each afternoon with the most coverage over 
the mountains.
