NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
756 PM EDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will weaken through Tuesday as a weak cold 
front drops south toward our region. Low level moisture will 
gradually return through the work week as this cold front approaches 
from the area from the northwest. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
730 PM update...no major changes to the overnight. Did roll back the 
fog mention late tonight to some degree. Sea breeze is still 
expected to arrive but it is encountering such dry air that 
fog/stratus do not appear as likely as last night...when fog 
remained rather isolated. Reduced the mention to the areas 
along/south of I-85. 


As of 215 PM EDT...the forecast area will remain in the base of a 
broad trough extending from eastern Canada through the southeast United States 
tonight through Tuesday. The low level circulation moving NE along 
the southeast coastline early in the period should permit all associated 
deeper moisture to remain confined to the coastal plain overnight. 
Another seabreeze front may work in from the southeast to further elevate 
dewpoints and keep mins on the warm side of climatology. Patchy daybreak 
fog is expected throughout. 


A cold front will approach the northern tier on Tuesday and possibly 
trigger isolated to scattered convection along the northern Blue Ridge 
during the afternoon hours. Westerly steering flow would then drive 
any convection eastward over the NC Piedmont through late day. 
Profiles are still on the dry side...but 850 to 500 mb lapse rates 
should steepen to 6.5 degree c or better and the approaching boundary 
will aid triggering. A MOS blend of low end probability of precipitation for the northern half 
seems reasonable. Maximum temperatures may gain another degree over Monday 
values ahead of the boundary in most areas tomorrow afternoon. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
at 200 PM EDT Monday...a large upper low near Hudson Bay is forecast 
to move slowly eastward allowing flow over the southeast U.S. To become 
more zonal in nature. An upper short wave will approach from the 
west by late Thursday. In regard to sensible weather...a weak cold 
front is forecast to settle south of the area Tuesday night with 
perhaps somoe widely scattered convection lingering during the evening. 
High pressure nosing southward should allow somewhat dryer air to 
filter into the region Tuesday night into Wednesday. This should allow for a 
period of quiet weather through Wednesday for most of the area. The 
exception may the upper Savannah River valley and SW NC mountains 
where models show some convective response late Wednesday as the surface front 
begins to return as a warm front. The 12z NAM depicts the weak front 
front moving across the western Carolinas Wednesday night triggering 
perhaps some scattered convection. On Thursday...the approach of the upper 
short wave should trigger numerous showers and thunderstorms in the 
mountains...with scattered afternoon convection elsewhere. Temperatures will 
remain quite warm as 1000-850mb thickness field shows little change 
despite the weak frontal passage. Maximum temperatures on Thursday may be a couple 
degrees lower due to increased clouds and convection. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
at 145 PM EDT Monday...starting at 00z Friday...with nearly zonal 
west to east upper flow and shortwaves moving through the middle level 
flow topping the SW ridge going east. Two significant shortwaves 
will be crossing the southern Appalachians Thursday night and 
Friday. Some amplification of the pattern will occur Friday and 
Saturday with the axis of the upper East Coast trough roughly across 
the Carolinas. Upper ridge at that time will be centered over West 
Texas. For Sunday and Monday...upper ridge builds a bit more east as 
upper trough holds along the eastern Seaboard. Another significant 
shortwave passing through in middle week will dig threshold 500mb trough over 
Carolinas and suppress ridge to the west. 


At the surface...the slow moving weak cold front will drop south 
over our region with the passage of the shortwave. This front will 
gradually move just south of our area over the weekend with the 
front becoming stationary Sunday and Monday over south Georgia and 
the southern tip of SC. 


Raised probability of precipitation a bit for Thursday night and Friday with the shortwaves 
and frontal passage. Instability will be weak to moderate south of 
the front and best chances of any rain will be suppressed south of 
the frontal boundary. Temperatures will be around or slightly below 
normal over the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...VFR most likely will prevail through the period. Sea breeze 
will work into the area this evening...but despite the improved surface 
moisture this will bring...the chance of restrictions at daybreak 
appears too low to mention at this time in light of dry profiles and 
good mixing Monday afternoon. Winds will veer into the SW quadrant as low 
pressure progresses through eastern Canada. Some guidance brings kclt under 
the influence of another low riding along the Carolina coast...but 
it looks too weak to bring them around to northwest. Convective chances are 
slightly better Tuesday afternoon...but chance remains low enough that it was 
omitted. Northwesterly gusts from upstream outflow are more likely than 
actual shra/tsra. 


Elsewhere...with good mixing over most of the area Monday afternoon...the 
boundary layer likely dried out enough to preclude fog at all sites 
except kand. Sea breeze will again enter the Piedmont tonight...but 
models generally do not depict it being accompanied by low stratus. 
Winds will be very light but most likely S to SW. These will veer to 
a more westerly direction by the end of the day Tuesday. A frontal boundary 
sagging into northern NC will enhance diurnal convection...warranting a 
prob30 mention at kavl. Piedmont wnc will see isolated rain showers/thunderstorms and rain but 
this doesn/T warrant a mention at khky. 


Outlook...gradually increasing precipitation/restriction chances are 
expected through the week as moisture returns...and as a front 
stalls in our vicinity...with a disturbance then moving along it.
