NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
136 PM EDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will remain in place across the area through the 
weekend. Low level moisture will gradually return next week as 
another cold front approaches from the north. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 130 PM...updated the forecast for the 18z tafs. Also updated the 
dewpoints/relative humidity for this afternoon. Based on current trends this may still not 
be low enough...as dewpoints mix out into the upper 40s to lower 50s in spots 
(drier than any of the guidance). Winds have also been marginally 
gusty across the mountains and foothills. 


As of 950 am...added a slight chance to low-end chance pop across portions of 
the upper Savannah valley...where radar is showing popcorn showers 
developing. A dry north/NE flow should shunt most of that moisture and 
precipitation to the south...so expect dry conditions to return to that 
area by around midday. Otherwise...updated sky cover to match up 
with visible Sat imagery. The NAM forecast soundings show this moisture around 
800 to 700 mb mixing out by middle afternoon. So no major changes to the sky 
cover. Temperatures/dewpts/wind look on track. 


An upper ridge will amplify slightly over the western USA today and 
tonight...while a trough does likewise over the east. The bulk of 
upper level energy will pass well over the Great Lakes. At the 
surface...a stationary front will remain over the coast of the 
Carolinas and Georgia. Moisture associated with this boundary will 
generally remain southeast our area...while a dry northerly flow persists 
north of the front. With a lack of instability and 
moisture...precipitation is not expected. With modest downslope flow 
present...temperatures will be near or slightly above normal. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 155 am Saturday...still looks like a quite period for the 
first few days of August. The upper pattern will remain essentially 
unchanged Sunday and Monday...which keeps the East Coast at the 
bottom of an upper trough and the western Carolinas with a dry northwest flow 
aloft. The surface pattern shows high pressure over the southern 
Appalachians Sunday...then retrograding slightly Monday as a weak 
Lee trough develops. Instability will be minimal at best with surface 
dewpoints expected to mix out into the middle/upper 50s. That said...it 
looks like isolated convection will be possible across the mountains west 
of the French Broad valley on Sunday and the northern mountains on Monday. 
Above normal temperatures Sunday will rise a couple of degrees on Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Saturday/... 
as of 315 am Saturday...the East Coast trough begins to lift Tuesday 
allowing heights to rise and a westerly flow to develop across the area. 
A cold front drops toward the area from the north...but remains to 
the north. Dew points remain dry for this time of year limiting 
instability...and pop to isolated northern mountain convection. Highs rise to 
well above normal. 


A series of short waves drop toward the area Wednesday carving out a short 
wave trough which moves into the area Thursday. The trough moves east of the 
area Friday...but another short wave trough drops toward the area. The 
cold front to the north slowly drops into the area Wednesday with a low 
pressure center moving east along the front and into the County warning forecast area Thursday. 
The low moves to the east Friday...but the front only slowly moves 
south. This means an increasing chance of mainly diurnal convection Wednesday 
and Thursday...with a decrease on Friday...but pop remaining in the chance 
range. Temperatures remain nearly steady Wednesday...then fall a few degrees Thursday 
and Friday...but remain above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Saturday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...VFR. There is just enough moisture for a few cumulus out 
there with bases around 7000 feet. Otherwise...the main concern will 
be winds (and that should not be much). Winds should favor a north direction 
through the period (mainly northwest this evening...then NE Sunday morning). 
They will be generally 5 knots or less tonight...then increase again 
around daybreak to around 8-10 kts. 


Elsewhere...VFR. Unusually dry air for this time of year has settled 
in across the region. Winds have been occasionally gusty so far 
today...and gust potential should gradually end late afternoon/early evening. North 
to NE wind will increase again around daybreak Sunday...with a few 
low-end gusts possible middle morning when mixing starts to deepen. 


Outlook...flight conditions will remain restriction free through the 
weekend ahead of gradually increasing precipitation/restriction 
chances through middle week as moist southerly flow returns.
