NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
238 PM EDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
Bermuda high pressure will persist across the region through the 
weekend and into early next week. Deeper moisture will gradually 
pool along the southern Appalachians in the southerly flow between 
low pressure approaching the middle Mississippi Valley from the west 
and the offshore Bermuda high to the east. A cold front will push 
southward into the region around middle week and then likely stall 
nearby. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
scattered/numerous convection continues to fire across the southern 
Appalachians and upper Savannah River valley this afternoon. Cloud 
cover has somewhat limited buoyancy across the high terrain thus 
far...so the best coverage is currently found over the usrv. Probability of precipitation 
have been increased to likely there for the next couple of hours. 
Elsewhere...coverage is much more isolated...and outflow boundaries 
associated with ongoing convection appear to be struggling to 
initiate new activity away from the ongoing convection. 
Nevertheless...steering currents and propagating outflows should 
result in a gradual increase in probability of precipitation from SW to NE through the 
afternoon..with most areas seeing 30-40 probability of precipitation. Cell movement will 
remain slow until/unless outflows get a bit of momentum in their 
wake. Thus...locally heavy rainfall will be a concern in the very 
near term....while a brief microburst or two cannot be ruled out. 


While coverage of convection should diminish this evening...a light 
S/southeast low level upslope flow and the lingering deep moist plume could 
allow at least isolated convection could persist for much of the 
overnight near the Blue Ridge...and 20-30 probability of precipitation will be carried in 
these areas through the period. 


For Friday...short term guidance indicates the moist plume will lift 
north and become diffuse through the day...as upper shear zone/weak 
trough continues to shear out. As such...forecast soundings are 
quite dry across the forecast area by afternoon. In fact...short 
term model quantitative precipitation forecast response and convection-allowing models suggest 
tomorrow afternoon will be quite inactive. Probability of precipitation may therefore 
actually peak in the morning hours. Nevertheless...moderate 
instability should support at least isolated convection across much 
of the area through the afternoon...while the highest probability of precipitation (about 50 
percent) will be reserved for the tenn border counties...nearer the 
retreating moist plume. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
at 200 PM EDT Thursday...on Friday evening an upper ridge will be 
along the East Coast...while an upper trough will be over the 
plains. The trough axis slowly progresses to the MS River Valley by 
late Sunday...while the ridge progresses off the East Coast. 


At the surface...Atlantic high pressure remains over the Carolinas 
and Georgia into Saturday...but with a weakening trend as the center of 
the high drifts farther offshore...and a cold front approaches from 
the northwest. The models indicate a modest decrease in low level moisture 
over much of our area Friday night and Saturday...as a Lee trough 
develops in the Piedmont. As the trough appears to shift east on 
Sunday...moisture spreads across our area from the west in advance 
of the slow moving and weakening cold front. 


The greatest instability will be along the Lee trough in the 
Piedmont...but shear appears to be quite limited. With only weak 
isentropic upglide and upslope flow...precipitation should not be 
excessive outside of locally robust convection. Temperatures will 
run slightly above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM Thursday...models are in good agreement at the start of 
the extended period. A frontal boundary will have slowed its 
southeastward motion considerably and become almost stationary over 
the southern Appalachians by Sunday night...leading to a healthy 
increase in probability of precipitation. The boundary washes out somewhat but remains in 
place Monday and Tuesday...keeping probability of precipitation elevated through Tuesday 
night. A lack of significant upper level forcing and shear should 
keep the probability of organized severe storms relatively 
low...though isolated pulse-type strong to severe storms can't be 
ruled out due to marginal instability each afternoon. Weak mean flow 
and possible weak mechanical upslope forcing will make locally heavy 
rainfall the main threat for the extended period. 


Guidance diverges somewhat in the second half of the period...with a 
surface high expanding over the northeast and pushing the now 
backdoor frontal boundary out of the area. Due to differences in 
model position and strength of a potential cut-off upper level low 
over MS/la...the 12z GFS sweeps the backdoor front in more quickly 
than the 00z European model (ecmwf). Consequently the GFS displays a drier solution 
for Wednesday and Thursday than the wet European model (ecmwf)...resulting in probability of precipitation 
just slightly above climatology. The forecast is closer to a GFS 
solution with the faster frontal passage...but the wetter/slower 
European model (ecmwf) bears watching until the guidance comes into better 
agreement. 


Maximum temperatures will remain above climatology Monday...with min temperatures remaining 
a category or two above average. A very moist airmass and hefty 
cloud cover during the second half of the period will keep highs 
right around normal while limiting the diurnal temperature range 
considerably. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...main concern this period is convective potential during 
the remainder of the PM. Although the best coverage during this time 
will be across the far western Carolinas...one lone cell has developed 
recently just south of the terminal...thus the tempo for thunderstorms and rain has 
been moved to 18-22z. Otherwise...winds will generally remain 
southerly...with some gusts possible near showers and storms. 
Sufficient moisture will remain in place through the period such 
that there will be a potential for ceiling and/or visby restrictions 
late tonight/early Friday. However...confidence is quite low at this time...and 
in fact...low ceilings and/or fog may be confined to areas closer to the 
high terrain. 


Elsewhere...scattered cells are developing along an axis from 
roughly kand to kavl. Tempos for thunderstorms and rain will persist at these 
terminals through 22z. Steering winds and propagating outflow 
boundary should take this activity off to the east/NE rather gradually. 
Thus...tempos have also been introduced at kgsp/kgmu after 19z. Thunderstorms in the vicinity 
will be retained at khky for now...but will have to watch that site 
closely for a potential tempo as well. Sufficient moisture will 
remain in place through the period such that there will be a 
potential for ceiling and/or visby restrictions late tonight/early Friday. 
Visby restrictions will be carried at most terminals during this 
time...with low ceilings limited to kavl. Low ceilings can by no means be 
ruled out elsewhere...but confidence is quite low at this time. 


Outlook...moist SW flow will continue to affect the terminal 
forecast area through the upcoming weekend...as a cold front lays 
over to the north of the area. Expect pockets of morning fog and/or 
stratus most days...with continued chances of afternoon/evening rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
each day.
