NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
347 am EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach from the northwest this morning and 
should move across the Carolinas and north Georgia this afternoon 
and evening. High pressure will build in behind the front for Friday 
and the weekend. Another front is expected to pass on Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 330 am...recent regional radar indicated that the convection 
across eastern Tennessee has decreased to isolated showers...with a secondary 
patch of showers across the southern I-77 corridor. West/v showed the 
middle level trough axis was located across eastern KY/TN...sweeping 
east. At 330 am...W/v and rap indicated that several short wave existed east 
of the trough axis...with stronger short wave across the western Ohio River 
valley. I anticipate that widely scattered to scattered rain showers will drift or 
develop across NC mountains early this morning. By middle day...the middle 
level trough is expected to ripple over the southern appalachian 
region. By 17z...forecast soundings indicate that convective available potential energy will range 
between 1000-1500 j/kg across the region. As weak middle level forcing 
reaches the mountains and foothills early this afternoon...convection 
should develop across the east facing slopes and foothills. Forecast 
soundings indicate that the steering flow will push cells northwest to southeast 
across the western Carolinas and NE Georgia. Shear may remain weak 
through this afternoon...but possibly enough to organize convection 
into a band. Once developed...the band should slide 
quickly east...reaching the clt area by late afternoon. These storms 
may result in strong to severe thunderstorms and rain wind gusts across portions of 
the of the forecast area. In addition...dcape across the eastern 
Piedmont may range from 500-1000 j/kg. We will highlight in the severe weather potential statement 
the potential for damaging wind gusts associated with the forecast 
thunderstorm band. High temperatures may range from 80 within the 
mountain valleys near 90 east of I-85. 


This evening...convection will propagate east...exiting the County Warning Area 
early this evening. Overnight...conditions will dry with cloud cover 
decreasing from west to east. Low temperatures may range 2-3 degrees 
cooler than this morning. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday night/... 
as of 300 am Thursday...the short range is shaping up to be 
relatively quiet. The front should be driven far enough S to not 
affect the region on Friday. The upper trough over the east should 
pull out or fill a bit on Friday into Saturday with weak surface 
high pressure moving over the region. The models continue to 
alternately depict isolated/widely scattered shower development 
during heating on Friday and Saturday...but the situation does not 
appear to have a whole lot going for it as moisture should be much 
less than the last week. A few short waves will move across the 
region but the models do not respond to any great degree. At this 
point...would prefer to remain optimistic for the first part of the 
weekend and have kept the forecast dry. Any brief drop in temperatures on 
Friday will be wiped out for Saturday as the air mass modifies back 
to normal. Toward the end of the period...there is some potential 
for an mesoscale convective system or remnants to approach from the west or northwest...so a small pop 
was introduced on the Tennessee border. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 330 am Thursday...the medium range has perhaps a bit more 
uncertainty thrown in for Sunday and Monday. The return moisture 
does not appear to be as great on Sunday and any upper support for 
convection should move past to the north...to the point where the 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) both fail to develop much in the way of precipitation. At the 
same time...the models continue to suggest some sort of mesoscale convective system 
activity...but keep it moving across the Ohio Valley/central 
Appalachians. There is the potential for a boundary to move down 
from that activity which could trigger some storms. Will not make 
any changes to the precipitation probs for Sunday...but keep in mind the 
trend is for less activity on that day. The models continue to 
deepen the upper trough over the east again on Monday with stronger 
waves driving another surface cold front southeast across the region...most 
likely on Monday. In spite of this boundary being more significant 
in terms of air mass change...the model response is underwhelming in 
terms of precipitation. Again...will not make any changes...but a downward 
trend might be started later today. Still looks below normal for the 
middle of next week as a surface high of Continental origin drops 
down from Canada/northern plains. Have nudged temperatures/dewpoints down a bit 
more for Tuesday night into Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...conditions this morning will remain less favorable for fog 
and ceiling restrictions than previous mornings. I will forecast VFR 
conditions to remain through the rest of this morning...with very 
light to calm winds. The primary forecast challenge will be the 
timing of afternoon thunderstorms and rain. The 4km WRF indicates that convection will 
develop across the NC foothills between 18z-19z...forming a band. 
Steering flow and cold pool generation should result in the band to 
move briskly east during the afternoon...likely passing across the 
clt metropolitan area between 20z to 22z. I will highlight the thunderstorms and rain 
potential with a tempo group from 21z to 24z. 


Elsewhere...terminals east of the mountains will remain similar to clt. 
Kavl will likely see IFR or lower conditions during the pre dawn 
hours...returning to VFR by 13z. Kavl should see winds from the 330 
to 350 degrees through the taf period. 


Outlook...Friday and Sat should be quiet and VFR...except for the mountain 
valleys where early morning fog may occur. Thunderstorms will return 
to the forecast for Sunday afternoon through Monday as another cold 
front approaches and then moves through the area on Monday.
