NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
210 PM EDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front is expected to push south across the region today. 
This will be followed cool and moist high pressure which will 
persist through through the Holiday weekend. A gradual warming trend 
will follow toward the middle of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 130 PM...satellite imagery shows enhanced cumulus over the 
ridgetops and radar imagery shows that deep convection has initiated 
across parts of NC and along the Blue Ridge in Virginia. Coverage should 
gradually expand from there. Made some minor tweaks to precipitation 
chances mainly over the upstate and NE Georgia to delay onset for a 
bit longer. Still think we could see a few storms become strong enough 
to produce damaging wind gusts now that we have realized the 
expected environment with dcape 1000+ j/kg. Temperatures look good. 


Remainder of previous discussion... 


Copious low level moisture remains over the area. This combined with 
the expected heating will lead to moderate instability. Expect 
convection will develop again today...but will have a little later 
start time. Convection begins near the Blue Ridge and spreads east 
and south through the day and into the early evening. Best coverage 
will be across NC with likely pop for the I-40 corridor. There will 
be minimal shear...but isolated severe storms are possible given the 
instability and dcape approaching 1000 j/kg. Convection diminishes 
through late evening...but returns overnight as the east to NE flow 
strengthens. Highs today will again rise into the 90s outside of the 
mountains and middle 80s for the valleys. Lows will be above normal. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday night/... 
at 230 am EDT Friday...on Saturday morning a positively tilted 
upper ridge will extend from Texas to New England...while a an upper 
trough extends from the western Atlantic to the Carolinas and Georgia. By 
Sunday an upper low closes of near the SC coast...south of the 
persistent upper ridge. Weak middle level energy rounding the upper 
low will move inland from the coast to the southern Appalachians. 


At the surface...on Saturday a ridge of high pressure will be in 
place along the eastern Seaboard. Model data shows a lack of 
isentropic upglide over the ridge...and even low level flow lacks an 
orthogonal component into the Blue Ridge. Elevated instability will 
be present however...supporting convection that will be maximized 
during daytime heating. Temperatures will exhibit a reduced diurnal 
range...with maximums below normal...and minimums near normal. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
at 150 PM EDT Friday...starting Monday night the 500mb pattern has 
a shallow ridge over the southeast states with a trough axis over the 
western Dakotas and progressing east impinging on the Southeast Ridge. The 
ridge will flatten out through middle week then the trough digs over 
the southeast with axis becoming established just west of the Appalachians 
by late Friday. Ridge will build at weeks end over the far west. 


At the surface...high pressure will be over the Carolinas and middle 
Atlantic Tuesday then drifts east as cold front crosses the miss 
valley. This cold front reaches the Ohio Valley by Thursday and will 
be crossing our area by Friday. Scattered convection will increase 
as the front gets closer late in the week. 


Overall...the instability will be modest at best. Cape 
values around 1000 on the GFS for Piedmont Georgia and SC late 
Tuesday...weaker values Wednesday and 700 to 1000 Thursday and Friday. 
Wind speeds in the low to middle levels not excessive as h8gher winds 
at the end of the week in the trough. Even then the 700mb wind will 
be around 20 kts which is fairly light. 


Temperatures a little above normal in middle week...dipping to a little below 
normal next weekend within the trough. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt...seeing some storms initiate to the east where satellite 
imagery had some enhanced cumulus. This activity should work its way into 
the clt metropolitan area through middle afternoon. Previous amend introduced a 
tempo at 21z for thunderstorms and rain and think that timing still looks OK for the 
most part...as we need to specify a four hour window...but this 
could easily need to be amended again before that. After a round of 
storms moves through the area...will keep only convective debris across 
the region overnight...with a light NE wind. The model guidance 
suggests bringing a low cloud deck down from the NE in the early 
morning hours. A similar evolution occurs in most situations like 
this...with plenty of moisture...and easterly component to the low 
level flow...with high pressure to the NE. The lamp guidance was 
generally accepted...but ceilings were kept to MVFR across the western 
Piedmont of NC. Later tafs will have to address the possibility of 
IFR ceilings around daybreak...but for now it is more likely to stay 
MVFR. On Saturday...low cloud base will gradually rise to VFR as 
boundary layer deepens. Additional showers or storms should develop 
with heating around midday. 


Elsewhere...scattered storms will form first across the higher 
terrain and then slowly develop down across the rest of the forecast 
area through early evening. Confidence only high enough at kavl/khky to 
include a tempo for now. The upstate SC taf sites were limited to 
thunderstorms in the vicinity/prob30 based on lack of coverage in convection allowing models. 
There could be a round of showers in the early morning Saturday as a 
back door surface boundary moves down from the NE...but confidence not 
high enough to mention. Expect valley fog to form at kavl in the pre- 
dawn hours...most likely restricting visibility to MVFR...unless precipitation 
falls there today. Think low cloud ceiling will reach khky Saturday 
morning...but get hung up moving SW as sun starts to warm atmosphere 
after 12z. Wind should remain north to NE through the period. More showers 
can be expected with heating on Saturday. 


Outlook...a moist easterly flow will continue through Sunday...bringing 
a good chance of IFR/MVFR restrictions Saturday night and Sunday 
morning. Light precipitation will remain possible. The threat for 
restrictions will continue through Sunday night. Dry air working in 
from the east on Monday will begin to diminish the threat for early 
next week.
