NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1024 PM EDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
Canadian high pressure will begin to slide east of the area and 
weaken through Friday. As the high weakens...moisture will return 
for the weekend increasing the chances of widespread showers and 
thunderstorms. Conditions return to those more typical of late 
Summer by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
915 PM update...cirrus continue to stream across the forecast area...coming out 
of the shortwave over Oklahoma/Arkansas. Revised sky grids to better 
reflect the presence of these clouds...which are largely opaque. 
Some midlevel clouds have developed beneath them as well. Latest 
expectation is still for even lower clouds to form overnight...per 
the southeasterly flow pattern seen on 00z NAM as well as earlier models. In 
light of these facts...and noting slightly warmer temperatures than previous 
forecast at this hour...I raised min temperatures perhaps a degree. Some cloud 
cover had already been anticipated. As far as the convection over 
the midlands...it waned more or less on schedule...taking some time 
to exhaust the instability. However some light activity continues to 
fire where the best convergence is evidently present just south of 
Charlotte. Extended the pop mention in Union NC a little longer. 


As of 730 PM...the latest guidance still suggests stratus or 
stratocu developing and moving into the Piedmont from the southeast 
late tonight. Isentropic lift from the light southeasterly flow is not very 
impressive...but could be sufficient for patchy cloudiness. Trimmed 
back the Blue Ridge probability of precipitation to not begin until around daybreak...again 
due to weak flow and the fact that better thermal advection doesn/T 
arrive until later than earlier expected. 


As of 215 PM...in regard to the big picture....some changes are 
anticipated to gradually take place by late Thursday. The upper trough 
axis over the eastern U.S. Is forecast by the models to become 
re-established to the west of the Appalachians as energy from the 
central rockies dives southeast. At the same...a stationary front near the 
coast will begin to move slowly westward as a warm front. Hence by 
late tonight...boundary layer winds will begin to veer to the east-southeast 
which will advect Atlantic moisture into the area and provide week 
mechanical lift across the higher terrain. Plus by Thursday afternoon...a 
vorticity maximum is forecast to approach from the SW and swing across the 
mountains Thursday afternoon. All this combined will give US an 
increasing chance for showers on Thursday....with the best coverage over 
the NC mountains during the afternoon hours. Will limit probability of precipitation to the 
chance range at this time as instability appears limited with only a 
couple hundred joules of cape expected. Only widely scattered 
showers are expected outside the mountains. With increasing clouds 
tonight...min temperatures should be several degrees higher than last 
night. Considerable cloudiness is anticipated on Thursday which will 
continue to hold maximum temperatures below climatology. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 220 PM...on Friday...moisture across the southeast U.S. Should 
increase sharply as Atlantic moisture advects west and merges with 
moisture associated with a fading Southern Plains low. Forecast 
soundings indicate that precipitable water will increase to around 1.75 inches by 
Friday morning...with LCLs below 2 kft. Nam12 shows isentropic lift 
will strengthen between 305k-315k Friday morning...persisting through 
the afternoon. Low level lift will likely be augmented along the 
east facing slopes as winds remain from the southeast around 20 kts. 
In addition...a broad area of middle level q-vector convergence will 
remain across the southeast...east of an amplifying l/west trough centered 
across the Mississippi River valley. The combination of the deep 
lift...abundant moisture...and weak instability should support 
numerous showers and thunderstorms on Friday... I will forecast 
generally likely probability of precipitation along and west of I-85...high chance east. The 
lack of instability across the mountains and foothills may support only 
showers...thunderstorms appear possible along and east of I-85. 
Periods of rain...east-northeast winds...and thick cloud cover should limit 
daytime heating...keeping highs in the 70s across the mountains to 
western Piedmont. 


On Saturday...the ridge of surface high pressure should trend weaker 
through the day. However...shallow ridging is expected to linger 
along and east of the high terrain. Deep forcing is expected to 
continue across the forecast area...aided by the approach of the 
amplifying middle level trough. I will forecast a range in probability of precipitation...likely 
probability of precipitation across the mountains to high chance east. Low level winds are expected to 
veer from the southwest...supporting temperatures 4 to 6 degrees 
warmer than Friday. Forecast soundings indicate weak instability 
across the forecast area...supporting a mention of thunderstorms for 
all zones. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 200 PM Wednesday...the medium range will start out with a 
fairly deep 500 mb trough axis extending from the Great Lakes south to the 
lower MS valley at 00z Sunday. The trough will gradually weaken/shear out 
early next week...but some degree of trofiness will linger through 
Wednesday. A quasi-stationary frontal zone will linger parallel to 
the southwesterly upper flow along/just inland of the East Coast...keeping the 
County warning forecast area in a moist/unsettled environment into early next week. The 
front will wash out by Wednesday...per the consensus of the medium 
range guidance. 


So blending in the new guidance and wpc guidance...I will forecast above 
normal probability of precipitation for Sunday and Monday (high-end chance to likely)...and 
tapering somewhat to shotgun low-middle chance for Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Temperatures will start out with below normal highs (due to 
clouds/precip)...and near normal lows through Monday...then afternoon highs 
will trend toward normal by Wednesday with continued near normal 
lows. 


The expected decent coverage of precipitation over several periods looks to 
be mainly supported by persistent upper divergence within right 
entrance region of a nearly stationary jet streak along the 
Appalachians. However...qg forcing and low level triggering will be only 
marginally supportive...with the better middle level forcing to the 
north...and low level jet and instability to the east. So confidence is low on 
any severe weather or heavy rain threat at this time. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...isolated rain showers will continue south of the field on outflow 
boundaries early this evening...but current rate of propagation is 
not enough to bring it near the field before diurnal buoyancy is 
exhausted. Guidance somewhat split on stratus development tonight in 
light but moist southeasterly low level flow. NAM and its derivatives are more 
aggressive than the GFS in bringing in the stratus. However the flow 
pattern lends confidence to the NAM depiction...therefore I have 
kept a low VFR ceiling at kclt beginning around daybreak. Flow aloft 
continues to be moist and warm-advective Thursday...so the ceiling is 
expected to persist though it may lift a bit. After a mostly calm 
night...winds should pick up from the southeast mid-morning. 


Elsewhere...ceiling forecast is basically as at kclt with minor differences 
in timing. All ceilings expected to bottom out at VFR. Some guidance 
develops widespread MVFR fog across the Piedmont with IFR in the mountain 
valleys. This seems questionable with fairly dry conditions 
continuing at the surface and with clouds increasing overhead. I 
maintained the mention in the valleys and at kavl. Light showers 
could develop around daybreak in the mountains...with isolated showers 
becoming possible across the area by Thursday afternoon. However chances are too 
low for a mention at all sites. Generally northerly surface winds will veer to 
east or southeast Thursday. 


Outlook...moisture will continue to increase through the 
remainder of the work week as a warm front approaches from the east 
and southeasterly flow continues. Unsettled weather with enhanced 
precipitation chances along with morning fog/stratus are expected 
through the weekend.
