NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
717 PM EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
weak surface high pressure will linger over the region through the 
weekend...but with moisture gradually increasing from the southwest. 
The remnants of Tropical Storm Erika are expected to move slowly 
northward through the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Monday and Tuesday. 
The fate of Erika will become much more uncertain from middle week 
Onward...but tropical moisture could gradually reach the western 
Carolinas and northeast Georgia through the upcoming work week. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
2315 UTC update...probability of precipitation have been reduced in the upper Savannah River 
valley per radar trends. Winds were updated with a blend of the 
latest model data. Sky cover was updated from visible satellite 
imagery. 


2040 UTC update...probability of precipitation have been adjusted per radar trends... 
favoring the central Tennessee border area. Sky cover was updated from 
visible satellite imagery. 


As of 230 PM EDT Saturday...broad upper ridge over The Four Corners 
compliments a closed upper low atop the north central Gulf this 
afternoon. At the surface...high pressure remains centered over the 
middle Atlantic yielding predominate east-northeast/east-southeast flow and thus dewpoints in 
the middle 50s under partly/mostly cloudy skies. Expecting said upper 
low to advect northward through the period all the while enhancing 
Gulf/atl moisture flux into the region tonight and tomorrow. 
In response...light showers currently ongoing across eastcentral 
Georgia are forecast to move northward over portions of the upper Savannah 
River valley and the NC high terrain this afternoon/tonight. 
Slight/chance probability of precipitation are featured for such through the remainder of 
the first period before all probability of precipitation are removed briefly after midnight 
outside of the SW NC mountains where slight chances will persist. 


As the deeper moisture plume advances northward by daybreak 
Sunday...probability of precipitation will increase from the southwest. The forecast features 
slight chances over west early...increasing with time to high 
end chances over the west...and slight chances east in closer 
proximity to less moist airmass adjacent to departing surface ridge. 
Not expecting any hazardous weather as the precipitable waters  remain below climatology and 
instability will be dampened thanks to mostly cloudy to overcast 
skies on Sunday. As a result of said sky cover...expecting 
temperatures to remain near or just above normal for overnight 
lows and 3-4 degrees below normal for highs on Sunday afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Saturday...the mean pattern will transition to 
upper riding aloft with a piece of energy still broken off over the 
south. A portion of this energy will continue to slide southwestward 
toward the Southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley...while 
another piece of upper energy will drifting northeast across our 
area through the short term. 250-300mb jet will be pushing north 
across Georgia and the Carolinas with a decent vorticity maximum with it. 
Best precipitation associated with the system will remain across 
central South Carolina but should push into portions of our upstate 
zones. Will get to the remnants of Erika more below...but this first 
slug of moisture moving through might be trending more toward a 
predecessor rainfall event /pre/...as mentioned in the overnight 
discussion...but by definition could only be a pre if we actually 
get impacted by the remnants of Erika. Again...more on that below. 


The wave pushes rapidly east and offshore by midday Monday as 
moisture associated with the remnants of Erika are prognosticated to push 
north across Florida. Still some uncertainty there for sure but at 
least increasing confidence based on latest guidance that through 
the short term should not see any impacts from the remnants across 
our area. Upper ridging builds across the southeast so we see a 
return to climatological probability of precipitation and a slight increasing trend in 
temperatures...but still with highs hovering just below seasonal normals 
especially on Monday given the upper wave moving through and 
corresponding amount of boundary layer moisture in place and cloud 
cover. 


Toward the end of the short term...models begin to diverge more with 
the 12z GFS bringing the remnants of Erika into Georgia and southern 
portions of South Carolina...and the European model (ecmwf) keeping the moisture 
farther to the south. The Southern Plains weakness is a little more 
pronounced on the GFS which is likely the culprit...as the upper 
flow around the cutting off low pulls more moisture north on the 
GFS. As mentioned above...should not really start to see any impacts 
of this across our area through the short term...but things get more 
complicated as we go into the extended. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 245 PM EDT Saturday...aforementioned moisture from the 
remnants of Erika will be the main player at least through the first 
part of the extended. The problem is that there is no clear 
consensus on what this moisture will do. The 12z GFS has the deep 
layer moisture /pw values between 2-2.25 inches/ hovering right on 
our doorstep across Georgia and central/southern South Carolina. The 
slug of moisture will continue to spin around itself /it is the 
remnant of a tropical system after all/ but its direction will be 
forced between the cutoff low across the lower Mississippi versus 
the upper ridging dominating the eastern half of the country. The 
12z GFS keeps abundant moisture across the southeast...with the 
lower Mississippi upper low absorbing the remnants and keeping it 
generally wet across the southeast and southern Appalachians pretty 
much through the end of the period. 12z European model (ecmwf) however keeps the 
lower Mississippi low its own entity and the remnants of Erika phase 
with a slowly deepening upper trough down the eastern Seaboard... 
not absorbing the lower Mississippi low until sometime on Friday. 
Moisture is anemic with the European model (ecmwf) and remains either offshore or to 
our south...with basically just climatology probability of precipitation across the area. 


Reconciling these two forecasts...one very wet with increasing 
potential for Hydro problems...and the other much drier /relatively 
speaking of course/ with more of a climatology pattern...is difficult at 
best. Add to this the rain potential /pre potential at that/ during 
the short term and the forecast is riddled with lower confidence 
than usual. If one were to believe the GFS...several inches of rain 
would be possible...at least somewhere...associated with the 
remnants of Erika. For now that somewhere is generally central and 
southern Georgia but with a prolonged period of above-normal precipitable water 
values across the southeast in general...but as with any forecast 
could easily change. The European model (ecmwf) not so excited. With lack of more 
consistent guidance...tried to take a bit of a middle-of-the-Road 
solution with generally an enhanced diurnal trend to probability of precipitation and a 
reduced diurnal trend in temperatures. Stay tuned though as the 
forecast could easily swing...maybe even markedly so...in one 
direction or the other. 


&& 


Aviation /23z Saturday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...VFR. Model time heights suggest increasing high clouds 
forming a high VFR ceiling for much of the evening...with scattered low 
VFR clouds moving in underneath. By middle morning Sunday low VFR ceilings 
are expected. Daybreak fog is not supported by model data. Light 
winds will favor the south-southeast. Convective chances will increase toward 
midday Sunday...but not enough to warrant a mention in the taf by 
afternoon. 


Elsewhere...a daybreak MVFR fog restriction is possible at kavl Sunday 
morning. High VFR ceilings area expected at all sites overnight...while 
scattered low VFR clouds move in underneath. By midday low VFR ceilings 
are expected...lowering to MVFR at kavl by afternoon. Light winds 
will become variable overnight...favoring the S in NC on Sunday... 
and the east in SC. Convective chances increases enough to warrant a 
mention on Sunday afternoon. 


Outlook...the southeast region is forecast to remain under a plume 
of Gulf and Atlantic moisture through the middle of next week. In 
addition...moisture associated with the remnants of Erika could 
reach the southern Appalachians during the middle week. Restrictions 
are possible during periods of rain and with the Mountain Valley fog 
around dawn.
