NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
733 am EDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
a series of systems will move though an upper level trough into the 
weekend...with mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms developing 
each day. High temperatures will warm to above normal by early next 
week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1000 UTC update...sky cover was reduced based on infrared satellite 
imagery. Winds were updated to incorporate the latest NAM guidance. 
Areas of fog were adjusted per surface observations. 


At 230 am EDT Wednesday...July kicks off with an anomalous upper 
patter featuring and eastern trough and a western ridge. One 
shortwave will be exiting the trough this morning...while another 
dives into it and toward the southern Appalachians. The second 
shortwave crosses the mountains around midday..followed by a third 
one this evening. 


At the surface...a cold front appears to stall to our north 
today...while a Lee trough remains to our east. Model forecast 
soundings show sufficient cape for convection this afternoon...with 
plenty of dry air aloft for evaporative cooling...however shear 
appears rather limited...and mainly above 700 mb. Steering flow will 
keeps cells moving...and low level flow will be parallel to the Blue 
Ridge...limiting uplope flow. Temperatures will run slightly below 
normal under the upper trough. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 245 am Wednesday...the short term forecast picks up at 12z on 
Thursday with the upper trough flattening out to our west and the 
northern stream lifting NE while numerous lobes of shortwave energy 
stream across the forecast area. 


On Thursday...a broad plume of deep layer moisture will have 
overspread the County warning forecast area from the west by the start of the period with 
another round of Lee troffing expected to set up for the afternoon. 
Probability of precipitation steadily ramp up through the day/evening from west to east with 
categorical values carried along the NC/tenn border region and 
likely over the northwest half of the County warning forecast area. Storm Prediction Center still has our County warning forecast area in the 
marginal risk area with the slight risk area now including our 
western corner...as of their most recent update this morning. 


Model profiles continue to show a healthy amount of instability and 
some decent low level shear...especially over the higher terrain on 
both Thursday and Friday. The models keep deep layer moisture over the forecast 
area well into Friday as a Central Plains low approaches the area Friday 
morning. The low moves NE of the County warning forecast area later in the day and another 
Lee trough develops in its wake keeping winds out of the SW. Precipitable water values 
remain high through most of the short term...so widespread flooding 
will be a concern going forward. Temperatures have trended a bit cooler in 
the model guidance since yesterday and start out just below climatology on 
Thursday. They warm a few degrees over the next couple of days and end 
up right around normal for early July. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 155 am Wednesday...the medium range forecast picks up at 12z on 
Saturday with heights gradually rising as the upper pattern flattens 
out over the southeast region. The long range models generate multiple weak 
upper shortwaves on Sat and into sun with a more defined shortwave 
moving by just to our north late sun/early Monday. After this feature 
lifts to the NE on Monday...heights rebound again and the pattern 
remains flat through day 7. At the surface...the region will remain fairly 
unsettled through most of the period with prevailing southwesterly low level flow. 
The County warning forecast area is expected to remain under weak Lee troffing over the 
weekend as a series of short lived mesoscale lows attempt to spin up over 
the Carolinas. The models generally agree that deep layer moisture 
will persist over the region through much of the period with the 
highest precipitable water values generally over the northern zones. As for the 
sensible forecast...I kept diurnal high end chances for convection each 
day/evening with some likely probability of precipitation over the NC/tenn border region for 
Sat and sun. Temperatures start out around climatology on Sat and warm over 
the next few days with highs over the southernmost zones topping out 
about a category above climatology by early next week. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...LIFR ceilings developed at airfield in accordance with 
surrounding sites. Latest lav guidance forecasts a very short 
duration LIFR event. Hence...will dissipate low ceilings by 14z. 
Convective chances look promising from middle afternoon to early 
evening as heating promotes instability. Winds will favor the 
SW...with gusts during daylight hours. Guidance favors VFR visibility at 
daybreak Thursday...but with MVFR visibility at most surrounding sites. 


Elsewhere...guidance still supports daybreak MVFR fog restrictions 
this morning at kavl and kand...but dew point depression are 
marginal. A LIFR ceiling is possible at kavl given the current few002 
there. Ceilings look less likely at foothill sites as no cloud cover is 
observed there. Model guidance has slowed the arrival of low VFR 
ceilings this afternoon and evening...but if afternoon convection gets 
going in earnest...that timing may be a bit late. Winds will favor 
the SW...with daytime gusts...except at kavl where winds will 
channel up valley form the northwest. On Thursday morning guidance hits 
kavl with daybreak MVFR fog...and khky with low VFR fog. 


Outlook...a upper trough will support mainly afternoon and evening 
thunderstorms through the weekend. Restrictions may occur with 
passing storms...and each morning over rain soaked areas.
