NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
653 am EDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
weak surface high pressure will linger over the region through the 
weekend...but with moisture gradually increasing from the southwest. 
Tropical system Erika is expected to move slowly northward through 
the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Monday and Tuesday. The fate of Erika 
will become much more uncertain from middle week Onward...but tropical 
moisture could gradually reach the western Carolinas and northeast 
Georgia through the upcoming work week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am...I will issue a quick update to adjust winds to 
observations. In addition...I will increase early hour sky cover and 
decrease associated probability of precipitation. 


As of 5 am...I will update the forecast to account for the latest 
cloud and temperature observations. In addition...I will reduce 
early morning hourly probability of precipitation to or near zero. Otherwise...no changes 
will be made to the forecast. 


As of 3 am...the center of weak surface high pressure will remain north 
of the region today...slight ridging will likely continue across the 
Carolinas and NE Georgia. Surface winds are forecast to remain light from the 
east-northeast. Latest water vapor images show the center of a middle 
level low over the Mississippi River Delta...with ridging over the 
southeast Continental U.S.. the circulation around the low will result in 
moisture across the forecast area to increase from the top-down 
through tonight. I expect that cirrus and condensation trails will become 
thicker through this afternoon...the middle and high clouds should 
sweep north across the region tonight. Forecast soundings indicate 
that the low level environment will remain rather dry through this 
afternoon. The combination of dry low levels...a significant 
inversion around 675 mb...mild temperatures will result in little to 
no cape today. I will keep probability of precipitation limited to single digits east of the 
mountains...and schc across the western mountains high temperatures are 
forecast to range from 2 to 3 degrees below normal. 


Tonight...the middle level low is forecast to slow lift north over the 
deep south...but remaining south of I-20 through 12z sun. A plume of 
moisture will likely lift across the southern appalachian region. It 
appears that a few showers will develop over the eastern upslope 
region first...then increase across the western mountains through 
sunrise. The GFS is several hours faster than the NAM with the 
arrival of measurable rainfall Sun morning. I will side with the 
NAM since models have generally been trending slower with the middle 
level low. I will keep probability of precipitation limited to a chance across the western 
tier...and schc west of Highway 321. I will forecast low temperatures 
from the low 60s across the mountains to near 70 around kand. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 230 am EDT Saturday...a 250 mb jetlet will move northward over the 
forecast area on Sunday as a middle/upper level shortwave phases back 
into the northern stream flow and lifts NE across the southern Appalachians. 
This improved forcing will be coincident with deeper moisture 
arriving in profiles from the SW to warrant solid chance probability of precipitation for 
showers in all but the northwest NC Piedmont through Sunday. The associated 
cloudiness will limit instability and the diurnal temperature range 
on Sunday...with some weak in situ wedging possible if showers 
become a bit more widespread. Despite the clouds...briefly steeper 
lapse rates aloft under the passing trough will warrant an isolated to 
scattered thunder mention for Sunday afternoon...especially in southern sections. 


An upper ridge will then build over the southeast Monday through 
Monday night as the shortwave departs to the NE and the lingering 
southern tier trough retrogrades to East Texas. Temperatures should rebound 
closer to climatology for Monday...with diurnal isolated to scattered 
showers/thunderstorms expected with weak instability but with developing southeast 
upslope flow. Precipitation chances may be slow to wane Monday night 
if any tropical moisture from Erika starts to enter the picture. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 230 am EDT Saturday...the eventual track of Erika and the 
associated moisture will provide plenty of uncertainty in the 
current medium range forecast. However...the surrounding synoptic 
features look a little better resolved. The upper level trough axis 
near the MS River Valley will strengthen a 250 mb jetlet from the 
Gulf Coast to just west of the Appalachians Tuesday through Thursday. This 
upper level feature may become coincident with a low level 925 to 
850 mb ridge of equivalent potential temperature stretched through 
the Piedmont of the Carolinas. There is slowly growing concern that 
this might provide a favorable setup for a predecessor rainfall 
event...pre...somewhere over the region by middle week ahead of the 
tropical system expected to move slowly northward through the 
eastern Gulf of Mexico. One limiting factor may be the low level 
blocking ridge over the middle Atlantic which could inhibit moisture 
transport northward. The combination of any pre along with east to southeast 
upslope flow into the higher terrain of the southern Appalachians 
could create the potential for heavy rainfall through the period. 
This might be beneficial given the current drought status...but it 
could also become excessive by middle to late week. 


Given the uncertainty...will simply feature above climatology probability of precipitation for the 
Tuesday through Friday period as the Erika remnants meander northward. Will 
give the pop trends a slightly diurnal character with an isolated to 
scattered afternoon thunder mention...but will keep some coverage going through 
the overnight hours. And...will shade the diurnal temperature 
changes to a smaller range given the potential for more 
clouds/precip. Will hold off on any severe weather potential statement mention of heavy rainfall 
until the tropical moisture/pre potential is better resolved. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt...VFR. Latest west/v images indicated the center of a middle level 
low over the northern Gulf of Mexico...lifting moisture north across 
the southeast Continental U.S.. forecast soundings indicate that moisture will 
increase from the top down through tonight. Cirrus and condensation trails 
should increase through the day...possibly a few cumulus. A significant 
inversion around 675 mb should keep the environment capped through 
this afternoon. Winds will remain light through the 
period...favoring a north wind this morning veering east-southeast 
by middle day...speeds 6kts or less. 


Elsewhere...terminals should observe VFR conditions through the taf 
period. Models indicate that a strong 675 mb inversion and a wide 
low level dewpoint depression will keep instability limited today. As 
mentioned above...a middle level low will advect high level moisture 
across the region through tonight....resulting in an increase in 
high clouds and condensation trails. Winds will remain light through the 
period...favoring a northheast direction today...veering 
sotheast by this evening ... 6kts or less. 


Outlook...the southeast region is forecast to remain under a plume 
of Gulf and Atlantic moisture through the middle of next week. In 
addition...moisture associated with the remnants of Erika could 
reach the southern Appalachians during the middle week. Restrictions 
are possible during periods of rain and within the mountain valleys 
around dawn.
