NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
645 am EDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will remain in place across the area through the 
weekend. Low level moisture will gradually return next week as 
another cold front approaches from the north. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1045 UTC update...sky cover has been updated from infrared satellite 
imagery...resulting in a decrease over the NC mountains and 
foothills. 


At 230 am EDT Saturday...and upper ridge will amplify slightly over 
the western USA today and tonight...while a trough does likewise 
over the east. The bulk of upper level energy will pass well over the 
Great Lakes. At the surface...a stationary front will remain over the 
coast of the Carolinas and Georgia. Moisture associated with this 
boundary will generally remain southeast our area...while a dry northerly 
flow persists north of the front. With a lack of instability and 
moisture...precipitation is not expected. With modest downslope flow 
present...temperatures will near or slightly above normal. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 155 am Saturday...still looks like a quite period for the 
first few days of August. The upper pattern will remain essentially 
unchanged Sunday and Monday...which keeps the East Coast at the 
bottom of an upper trough and the western Carolinas with a dry northwest flow 
aloft. The surface pattern shows high pressure over the southern 
Appalachians Sunday...then retrograding slightly Monday as a weak 
Lee trough develops. Instability will be minimal at best with surface 
dewpoints expected to mix out into the middle/upper 50s. That said...it 
looks like isolated convection will be possible across the mountains west 
of the French Broad valley on Sunday and the northern mountains on Monday. 
Above normal temperatures Sunday will rise a couple of degrees on Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 315 am Saturday...the East Coast trough begins to lift Tuesday 
allowing heights to rise and a westerly flow to develop across the area. 
A cold front drops toward the area from the north...but remains to 
the north. Dew points remain dry for this time of year limiting 
instability...and pop to isolated northern mountain convection. Highs rise to 
well above normal. 


A series of short waves drop toward the area Wednesday carving out a short 
wave trough which moves into the area Thursday. The trough moves east of the 
area Friday...but another short wave trough drops toward the area. The 
cold front to the north slowly drops into the area Wednesday with a low 
pressure center moving east along the front and into the County warning forecast area Thursday. 
The low moves to the east Friday...but the front only slowly moves 
south. This means an increasing chance of mainly diurnal convection Wednesday 
and Thursday...with a decrease on Friday...but pop remaining in the chance 
range. Temperatures remain nearly steady Wednesday...then fall a few degrees Thursday 
and Friday...but remain above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt...VFR. Precipitation is expected to remain along a front 
stalled off the coast. Drier air inland will not be supportive of 
visibility restrictions. Model time heights show the main cloud 
layer at around 7000 feet...and satellite imagery shows enough 
coverage to the west to make a brief VFR ceiling possible. The models 
show the cloud layer lowering to 6000 feet...but with less 
coverage...making a low VFR ceiling less likely. Light north winds will back 
to northwest today...then veer north this evening. 


Elsewhere...VFR. Drier air inland from a stalled front along the 
coast will not support precipitation or visibility restrictions. 
Model time heights show a layer of clouds around at 7000 feet...and 
some low VFR ceilings currently exist the SW NC mountains and southern NC 
foothills. Daytime heating should erode those ceilings...and the models 
show the cloud layer lowering to 6000 and diminishing this 
afternoon. Winds are generally expected to back from NE to northwest 
today...before veering back to north or NE tonight. 


Outlook...flight conditions will remain restriction free through 
much of the weekend ahead of gradually increasing 
precipitation/restriction chances through middle week as moist 
southerly flow returns.
