NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
457 am EDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
a well organized low pressure system will lift across the deep 
south...tracking along the Atlantic coast during the middle week. 
Another Canadian air mass will settle back over the region during 
the late week and will remain into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 430 am Tuesday...made minor tweaks to temperatures/dewpoints based on 
observations and also adjusted sky cover...increased clouds across 
northeast Georgia and the upstate but kept grids clear across 
especially northeast zones. Temperatures are beginning to drop as 
forecast into the 30s at the higher elevations of the mountains... 
so have left frost wording alone and no changes anticipated with the 
frost advisory. 


As of 230 am EDT Tuesday...the near term begins with the forecast 
area sort of between systems. Strong upper low remains off the New 
England coast but will continue to push east and out farther into 
the Atlantic. Behind this system and ahead of the next we are left 
in split flow aloft...but generally northwest...with high pressure 
over the plains ridging toward the southeast. Main feature of 
concern for the near term is the upper low spinning over the 
Southern Plains. Associated surface low is currently located in the 
northwest Gulf... with convection spreading east along the warm 
front that is roughly lined up with the southeast coastline. As the 
wavetrain slides east...so will the surface low...with moisture 
overspreading the southeast. 


Should be a pretty quiet day today with increasing high cloudiness 
across the area ahead of the approaching Gulf low and attendant warm 
front. Short term models in decent agreement on overall progression 
of the surface low...traversing along the Gulf Coast early in the 
period but then shifting northeast into south Georgia toward the end 
of the period. As the cirrus thickens through the day...expect that 
this will keep high temperatures several degrees below seasonal 
normals across the area. Expect a reduced diurnal range...especially 
across the upstate where cloud cover will be thicker...with lows 
tonight fairly close to seasonal normals. 


Definitely some differences in various hires guidance when it comes 
to precipitation pushing into the area late in the period. 
Isentropic upglide prognosticated to increase significantly across the 
forecast area after 00z Wednesday...but not all guidance jumping on 
the bandwagon of widespread rain. For example...Storm Prediction Center sseo guidance 
takes the northern extent of the precipitation shield at best only 
into our far southern zones /but with orographic shower activity 
developing over the mountains/. GFS most pronounced with this but 
operational NAM plus NAM nmm/arw guidance are similar. Sref and 
European model (ecmwf) both depict a little more widespread precipitation across the 
area. Think in the end...at least for the near-term period...this is 
easily a high pop-low quantitative precipitation forecast scenario. Have delayed the ramping up of 
probability of precipitation initially but still bring likely into southwest zones by the 
end of the period. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
as of 300 am Tuesday...out of the short range models...the 0z GFS 
appeared the best initialized with the large mesoscale convective system near the 
Mississippi Delta. The large cluster is expected to drive southeast 
across the northern Gulf of Mexico today. In the wake of the deep 
convection...rainfall across the deep south will slowly redevelop 
through today...lifting to the northeast through tonight. GFS and 
NAM indicate that the greatest low level isentropic lift will track 
across the midlands Wednesday morning. However...a region of middle 
level q-vector convergence is forecast to move west to east across 
the County Warning Area between 12z through 18z on Wednesday. In addition...850 mb 
winds on the north side of the low should provide upslope flow 
during the morning hours. I will continue to forecast categorical 
probability of precipitation for -shra...but quantitative precipitation forecast will be lowered to align with latest wpc 
forecasts. The thick cloud cover and rainfall will limit diurnal 
heating...I will forecast middle to upper 50s...with the I-40 corridor 
around 60. 


Wednesday night...the surface low will gradually deepen as it track 
northeast off the southeast coast. Model trends indicate that the 
low track may occur further east over the Atlantic. At the middle 
levels...a 500 mb trough axis should ripple across the region. Moisture 
and forcing appear limited across the forecast area. However...I 
will continue to forecast chance probability of precipitation...with lower values of quantitative precipitation forecast. Min 
temperatures are forecast to range from the middle to upper 40s. 


Thursday...a very interesting closed low slides across the southern 
to middle Appalachians during the afternoon. The bulk of the synoptic 
scale forcing should remain north and northwest of the forecast 
area. As the closed low approaches the western Carolinas...low level 
lapse rates are forecast to increase to around 8.5c/km. The NAM 
indicates that SBCAPE will generally peak during the afternoon 
between 500 to 800 j/kg. It appears that rain showers with low topped thunderstorms and rain 
will develop during the afternoon environment. Storm Prediction Center day 3 outlook 
agrees that general thunderstorms should develop across the western 
Carolinas and NE Georgia. I will forecast solid chance to low likely across 
the region...highest probability of precipitation across the mountains and I-40 corridor. High 
temperatures may range from the u50s within the mountain valleys to the 
middle to upper 60s east. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 315 am Tuesday...middle level heights across the forecast area 
will begin with a l/west trough on Friday...building to at 580 dm ridge 
by Monday. At the surface...Canadian high pressure will slide across the 
region Fri/Sat...the ridging will continue into Monday and high 
becomes nearly stationary over the western Atlantic. Temperatures 
will modify through the period...beginning with seasonal 
values...reaching 5 to 7 degrees above normal by Monday. Probability of precipitation will 
remain limited through the period...values do not exceed schc. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt /09z update/...overall no change to previous thinking 
but have increased cirrus coverage to broken based on current observation. 
Otherwise....expect VFR conditions through the period. Scattered to broken 
cirrus will dominate...with few to scattered low VFR /6kft or so/ clouds 
building in toward the end of the period. Just beyond the end of the 
period...-shra will be approaching the Piedmont as moisture 
overspreads the southeast from a surface low moving in from the 
Gulf. Will have to consider that for the 12z set. Otherwise mainly a 
wind forecast and wind shift timing will depend on approach of the 
inverted trough axis...plus if a Lee low manages to develop. Current 
timing has wind shift from east-northeast to east-southeast right around 03z Wednesday but 
this will need to be refined. Speeds should remain generally below 
5kt. 


Elsewhere...overall similar trend to kclt but with typical timing 
differences. Expect cirrus more dense across upstate tafs this 
morning with kavl/khky holding onto sky clear for a few more hours. Will 
likely see at least vcsh with low VFR overcast pushing into kand toward 
the end of the period...with additional restrictions anticipated 
just beyond the end of the taf. 


Outlook...the area of low pressure will push across the southeast 
Wednesday into Thursday with continued ceiling and visibility restrictions 
anticipated. An upper level disturbance approaches from the north 
late Thursday and Friday with a continuation of restrictions 
possible. Dry high pressure moves in for the weekend.
