NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
955 am EDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Synopsis... 
an elongated upper ridge will strengthen and retrograde over the 
southeast through the weekend. Shower and thunderstorm chances will 
favor the afternoon and evening with the best chances residing over 
the high terrain. Temperatures will increase to above normal levels. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1000 EDT update...probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast were reduced early on based on radar 
trends. Sky over was updated from visible satellite imagery. Winds 
were updated to incorporate the latest NAM data. 


As of 630 am...some dense fog has formed near Anderson possibly due 
to enhanced moisture coming off lake Hartwell in light SW flow. The 
fog layer is thick enough that it may take until 8 or 9 a.M. To 
fully clear up. Patchy light fog is seen around much of the 
remainder of the area...but this should improve more quickly. In 
light of latest hrrr runs and results from 00z ncar wrfdart 
ensemble...feel a bit more confident about scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain developing 
late morning over the Escarpment...but the existing coverage wording 
still looks good. 


As of 300 am...an active northern stream will continue today...as a 
shortwave crosses the Great Lakes and a cold front trails it into 
the middle Mississippi and Ohio valleys. However our weather will 
mainly be under the control of the Bermuda high...with temperatures peaking 
a couple degrees above normal...and southwesterly winds. Diurnally 
driven convection will drive probability of precipitation. NAM and even GFS cape forecasts would 
suggest fairly widespread activity...but in the recent days they 
have been overdone in terms of convective expectations. The hi-res 
Storm Prediction Center and NSSL wrfs show scattered activity developing over the Blue 
Ridge Escarpment at midday...but struggling to propagate east into 
the Piedmont where subsidence will keep warmer temperatures aloft. Probability of precipitation 
will be confined generally to the Blue Ridge and foothills. Dry air 
in the middle-upper levels will allow any thunderstorms that do form to produce 
fairly good downbursts...though the severe threat is not appreciable. 


Tonight...the cold front will hang up in vicinity of the Ohio River as the 
surface low pushes into eastern Canada. Low level flow will veer a bit over 
the great Tennessee Valley...and some upsloping into the wnc mountains may allow 
some cloud cover to develop. However rain chances remain 
unmentionably low. Min temperatures will be a few degrees above normal 
despite mostly clear skies east of the mountains 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
as of 200 am EDT Tuesday...the short term forecast period initializes 
Wednesday morning amidst building subtropical upper ridge over 
southeast...while a series of weak 500 mb impulses slide through the 
mean quasizonal flow over the Midwest and middle Mississippi River 
valley. At the surface...Bermuda high pressure will be well 
established over the western Atlantic leading to prevailing 
southerly flow into the the southern Apps. A cold front will 
extended southward from Quebec along the central/northern 
Apps...before turning westward atop the Ohio River valley into the 
Central Plains. 


As the pattern evolves on Wednesday models suggest the above 
mentioned cold front will sag further south...however should remain 
north of the County warning forecast area...likely draped across central VA/KY. Upper 
heights will be on the rise across northeast Georgia and the western 
Carolinas as the elongated upper ridge continues its retrogression 
westward. All said...soundings look fairly unfavorable for 
convection along and east of i77 where heating will allow for 
abundant instability...but likely remain capped. Points further 
west will see increasing precipitation chances due to weaker 
subsidence...however those chances will remain rather low except for 
over the NC high terrain. Therefore...low end slight chance probability of precipitation 
are featured along the i85 corridor...with an increasing gradient to 
chance probability of precipitation across the Blue Ridge. Profiles are marginally unstable 
across the mountains with little in the way of cin to prevent 
initiation during peak heating. Thus for the mountains...would not be 
surprised to see a few strong storms with damaging winds and hail 
being the primary threats. 


Expecting less coverage over the forecast area on Thursday as zonal flow 
to the north prevents any upstream mesoscale convective system activity associated with a 
series of 500 mb waves from sliding southward into the region. 
Additionally...upper heights will have risen further with the center 
of the subtropical ridge setup somewhere over the southeast states. 
Profiles are fairly warm leading to poor lapse rates and little in 
the way over instability...even over the higher terrain. Thus forecast 
probability of precipitation are non mentionable outside of the mountains where only slight 
chances prevail. Temperatures through the short range will 
gradually increase with highs topping out a couple degrees above 
normal on Wednesday...with highs around 4-5 degrees above normal on 
Thursday. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 300 am EDT Tuesday...the medium range forecast period initializes 
Friday morning with a 592dm 500 mb ridge sliding across the deep 
south...while the first in a series of short wave impulses slides 
through the middle Mississippi and Ohio River valleys. At the 
surface...broad Bermuda high will dominate the flow over the 
southeast while an old frontal boundary meanders over the middle 
Atlantic...eastward into the Ohio River valley. Guidance favors 
increasing probability of precipitation Friday and Saturday as the pattern evolves toward 
better alignment for diurnal thunderstorms thanks to upper ridge 
retrogression...along with possible mesoscale convective system propagation as activity 
fires along the above mentioned frontal axis beneath said upper 
impulses. Therefore...probability of precipitation are featured at slight chance levels 
over the Piedmont regions while the mountains favor chance probability of precipitation each 
day. By Sunday the upper ridge will have shifted out over the 
Southern Plains leading to continual/weak height falls aloft. With 
that said...models favor less upper wave activity around the top of 
the ridge on Sunday...therefore probability of precipitation are allowed to lower to below 
climatology. Probability of precipitation will return to climatology levels on Monday as models forecast 
another...perhaps more organized upper wave moving through the Ohio 
Valley into the central/southern Apps. Temperatures through the 
period will remain above normal levels. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...patchy morning fog will dissolve quickly after 
12z at all sites with the exception of kand...where the layer is 
thick enough that a LIFR ceiling is reported. Otherwise solar heating 
should be pretty effective in improving visibilities. Beyond this morning...a 
pretty quiet period is in store with mainly southwesterly winds...but kavl 
will start off northerly and flip at midday. A few rain showers and perhaps a 
couple thunderstorms and rain will develop along the Blue Ridge around midday...but 
stand little chance of surviving the trip east into less favorable 
air. Kavl has a vcsh mention but other sites are dry. 
Tonight...conditions should be a bit drier which will limit the fog 
coverage...though mountain valleys and sites in the northern Catawba valley 
still look to see some restrictions. A few low VFR clouds will 
develop over the mountains but otherwise skies will be nearly clear. 


Outlook...isolated to scattered afternoon/evening thunderstorms are 
expected over the area through this weekend...mainly in the mountains...with 
associated restrictions under the heaviest showers. Low clouds and 
fog could develop in the morning at places that have shower activity 
the day before.
