NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
435 PM 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 Sunday/... 
as of 430 PM EDT Saturday...mostly sunny skies prevail with only a 
few fair weather cumulus spread about the region. Winds remain generally 
light and northerly with some low end gusts occurring in the mountain 
valleys due to channeling. Tweaked temperatures/dewpoints along 
with sky in the immediate near term and left the remainder of the 
forecast as it was for this update. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 215 PM...not much change in the upper pattern through the near 
term...with a persistent trough over the eastern Continental U.S. And large ridge 
across the west. An unusually dry air mass for this time of year has 
settled in across the area. This should keep probability of precipitation at a minimum with just 
a few clouds here and there. Temperatures will near or even a degree or two 
below normal in spots tonight. 


Sunday...models hint at some return of low level moisture into the 
area...as surface high pressure builds into the central 
Appalachians...allowing for a light easterly flow atop the County warning forecast area. The 
NAM is most bullish on this...and has some convective response in 
the NC mountains this and the sref are about the only models that show 
this. I will keep a slight chance pop for the typical central and SW NC 
mountain peaks that often still trigger convection in spite of dry 
guidance. Temperatures will rise to a category or two above normal again 
with mostly sunny skies expected. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 215 PM Saturday...it looks like our quiet weather will remain 
at least into Monday...thereafter we can expect a return to more 
diurnal thunderstorm chances as low level moisture starts to 
improve. The dry weather continues on Sunday night and Monday as we 
should still be at the bottom of an upper trough with a west-northwest flow 
aloft. Dewpoint will probably mix out again on Monday afternoon... 
down into the 50s in many places east of the mountains...which would cut 
back on the potential for positive buoyancy. The NAM actually 
develops a moisture boundary near the eastern fringe of forecast area... 
which the model acts upon with shower development. For now...this 
was discounted as being an outlier. The forecast was kept dry over the 
Piedmont...through Tuesday morning. Some changes will begin on Tuesday 
as a short wave to the west begins to flatten and lift the trough. 
This allows moisture to increase as a surface boundary starts to sag 
down into the region from the north. The increased buoyancy combined 
with the potential trigger suggests a better chance for afternoon 
storms...at least over the NC part of the forecast area...so precipitation 
chances were nudged a bit above guidance. Temperatures will climb a bit 
each day...but relative humidity will be low enough so as to keep heat index below 
advisory criteria. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 215 PM Saturday...the medium range forecast picks up at 00z on 
Wednesday with broad upper troffing centered over the Great Lakes and 
persistent upper ridging over the western Continental U.S.. over the next couple 
of days...the pattern is expected to deamplify to some degree as the 
upper trough lifts to the NE and another northern stream upper trough helps 
to flatten the ridge over the west. At the same time...a series of fairly 
potent looking embedded upper shortwaves approach the forecast area from 
the west and northwest. At the surface...the subtropical Bermuda high will maintain 
its influence over the southeast region through most of the period with generally 
light southerly flow. As has been the case over the past couple of weeks...the 
long range models do not appear very consistent with the evolution of 
the surface pattern for most of the medium range. They attempt to spin up 
some sort of low on thrus and move it offshore by Friday and then develop 
another low just to our west on Friday and end with drier conditions 
for Sat. At this point...it is difficult to place much confidence on 
any specific model solution so I opted for an overall blend. Probability of precipitation increase 
for Thursday and Friday and taper back again on Sat but still remain at slight 
to solid chance. Temperatures start out above normal and then cool a few degrees 
towards the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Saturday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...VFR. There is just enough moisture for a few cumulus out 
there with bases around 7000 feet. Otherwise...the main concern will 
be winds (and that should not be much). Winds should favor a north direction 
through the period (mainly northwest this evening...then NE Sunday morning). 
They will be generally 5 knots or less tonight...then increase again 
around daybreak to around 8-10 kts. 


Elsewhere...VFR. Unusually dry air for this time of year has settled 
in across the region. Winds have been occasionally gusty so far 
today...and gust potential should gradually end late afternoon/early evening. North 
to NE wind will increase again around daybreak Sunday...with a few 
low-end gusts possible middle morning when mixing starts to deepen. 


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