NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
752 PM EDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
a broad upper level ridge of high pressure will build across the 
Mississippi River valley over the next few days and linger for the 
rest of the work week...resulting in above normal temperatures. A 
weak cold front will then push into the area from northeast Saturday 
and bring some minor relief from the heat. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 750 PM...convection across the County warning forecast area quickly dissipating with 
loss of heating. Additional convection over east Tennessee shows some signs of 
weakening...but coverage remains unchanged. Have updated pop to 
quickly fall off across the upstate and NE Georgia...but scattered pop to return 
this evening across the mountains as the convection moves in from Tennessee. 
Cannot rule out a few severe storms across the mountains overnight...but chance 
is quickly diminishing. Quite a bit of debris clouds linger over the 
western County warning forecast area with mostly clear skies east. The debris clouds will 
continue overnight...but should thin out with time. Still expect 
patchy fog overnight...with best chance in the mountain valleys. 


As of 425 PM...cluster of thunderstorms and rain associated with the previous mesoscale convective system have 
finally dissipated as they moved south of the County warning forecast area. Additional 
storms are forming across the mountains ahead of another shortwave. These 
storms will move south into the upstate and NE Georgia...and across the 
NC mountains through the afternoon and possibly into the early evening... 
especially across the NC mountains with the amount of instability and 
dcape values over the area...cannot rule out additional severe 
storms. Have updated pop to include these features. Otherwise... 
updates for current conditions. 


Previous discussion...a persistent small/strong to occasionally 
severe convective cluster continues to drop southeast toward 
Spartanburg County. Scattered convection is finally beginning to unzip a 
bit along the outflow boundary along the I-40 corridor into the NC 
Piedmont. Otherwise... the latest Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis depicts a minima 
in cape across the area...with cape exceeding 3000 j/kg just to our 
east... and more than 4000 j/kg across east tenn into northern/ctrl 
Georgia. Other than featuring 40-60 probability of precipitation downstream of the ongoing 
activity...the highest probability of precipitation have been delayed until evening across 
western areas. Robust convection is developing within the very 
unstable air across east tenn...and it appears coverage will only 
increase there through the afternoon...with some upscale growth 
possible if not likely in light of 0-3km shear of around 20 kts. We 
have therefore increased probability of precipitation to likely this evening across the 
Southwest Mountains of NC. Brief large hail and damaging winds will 
remain possible...with downburst potential enhanced with any 
organized clusters. 


Convection should wane and/or push south of the forecast area by 
late evening. However...low chance probability of precipitation will be maintained across 
the far western mountains...especially the northern mountains...as additional short 
wave troughs and/or mesoscale convective vortex/S dropping southeast...downstream of 
building upper ridge will continue to clip the forecast area. 
Otherwise...upper heights will continue to build across the 
southeast into Thursday...resulting in warmer middle-level temperatures and a 
deeper/relatively drier boundary layer with higher lfc/S. 
Nevertheless...forecast soundings are largely uncapped and quite 
unstable by afternoon. Probability of precipitation will be advertised near-climo...with 
slight/low chance probability of precipitation outside the mountains...and chances over the high 
terrain. Temperatures will be a bit above normal through the period. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 255 PM EDT Wednesday... the upper ridge currently in place 
from the western Gulf of Mexico to the northern plains...will 
retrograde or become slightly re-oriented by Saturday. Meanwhile the 
upper low pin-Wheeling across the Great Lakes...will drift toward 
the New England coast. 


Therefore sensible weather in the short term suggests a continuous 
flow of S/w's will slide southeastward (in the northwesterly flow aloft) toward our 
region this period. It appears one such short wave could clip parts of the 
northern and eastern sections of our forecast area Thursday night. 
Therefore...after some Thursday evening NC probability of precipitation for upsloping on the 
west facing slopes...we will adjust probability of precipitation across our northern and eastern 
counties for chance of showers and thunderstorms overnight. 


Other then ridge top storms Friday...it is hard to nail down any 
other area for higher probability of precipitation...although flow aloft suggests our northern 
sections may have a better chance. With moisture and instability in 
place will carry chance in the north and slight chance southern 
sections. 


It appears a back door cold front will edge toward the region 
Saturday with more cloud cover...and perhaps an increase in overall 
precipitation potential. We have not gone overboard yet to see if 
the trend continues during this time-frame. 


Guide temperatures on Friday should be very warm or hot...with 
apparent temperatures climbing to 100 degrees or better in our SC 
Piedmont zones. We have used more of a consensus of temperatures... 
rather than MOS value guide on Friday and Saturday. Temperature 
trend as mentioned hot on Friday...but knocked back somewhat on 
Saturday...because of clouds and potential precipitation. Thermal 
profile also suggests this plan. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 1230 PM Wednesday...medium range models are in decent enough 
agreement with respect to the mean pattern for the first half of the 
extended period featuring low level ridging poking south-southwest into the County warning forecast area. The 
combination of the low level easterly flow and the highly amplified northerly 
flow should result in enough forcing for at least scattered 
showers...and maximum temperatures a few degree f below persistance and a 
category or two below climatology Sunday and Monday. 


With low level ridging likely to linger through Tuesday...there remains above 
normal confidence that maximum temperatures will continue to average 
below climatology. It remains to be seen on just how much forcing is 
available to trigger shower activity...so just a token slight and/or 
small pop will remain. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...convection should remain north and west of the airfield 
overnight even if it survives the trip over the mountains winds have 
been tricky with all indications they would be west-northwest...but have 
remained west-southwest. Will keep the west-southwest this evening...then calm overnight. 
Light northerly wind develops after daybreak...then turns west-northwest for the 
afternoon. Any clouds should remain VFR through the period. Convection 
is expected again Thursday. However...cells should remain north and west 
of the airfield. 


Elsewhere...convection dissipating across the upstate but still 
going strong across east Tennessee. Will have to watch kavl for any amend 
overnight if the convection can survive the trip across the highest 
elevations. Reliable guidance is once again hitting the fog hard 
late tonight...as it has been doing the pasts several mornings... 
with very poor verification results. Therefore...have improved the 
visibility forecast considerably over what guidance is advertising...but 
this is still resulting in a 3sm forecast at kavl. Expect another 
round of convection Thursday...with best chance over the mountains and I-40 
corridor...so included prob30 for kavl/khky. Chance too low elsewhere. 
Otherwise...VFR conditions are expected through the period outside 
of shra/tsra. 


Outlook...scattered afternoon convection and patchy early morning fog will 
remain in the forecast through the week. There will also be an 
outside chance for remnant organized convection approaching the area 
from the northwest during the late night/early morning hours.
