NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
240 PM EDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
a Bermuda high pattern will remain across the region into the 
weekend before a cold front pushes in from the north late Sunday. 
This front will then weaken and become stationary over the area 
through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
stubborn stratocu persists in most areas east of the mountains...which 
has limited cape to less than 1000 j/kg thus far. Meanwhile... 
despite persistence of good insolation over the mountains... the cumulus field 
appears rather paltry at this time. Nevertheless...based upon the latest 
mesoscale/convection-allowing models...opted to stay the course with 
primarily 30 probability of precipitation across much of the area into the evening hours... 
with slightly higher probabilities along/near the eastern 
Escarpment. Although the limited instability should generally limit 
coverage of robust updrafts...strong Theta-E lapses/decent dcape 
and weak shear could support a couple of microbursts. 


A short wave trough will approach the area from the tenn valley this 
evening. There is a considerable amount of convection ahead of this 
feature across the miss valley this afternoon. Much of this activity 
will push across the tenn valley into the evening hours...but 
mesoscale and short term guidance are in general agreement that this 
activity will tend to lose steam as it approaches our area tonight in 
the weakly sheared/stabilizing environment. Thus...only token 
slight/low chance probability of precipitation will be retained through the overnight. 


By Thursday afternoon...precipitable waters  will return to above climatology levels...as 
deeper moisture pushes into the southern Appalachians and 
surrounding areas in association with dampening short wave trough. 
On the other hand...instability may end up being limited by 
considerable middle-level cloud cover tomorrow afternoon. 
Additionally...the deep layer flow will be extremely weak. In 
fact...2-8km mean winds are less than 5 kts in the latest NAM 
forecast soundings. Therefore...any cells that do develop tomorrow 
afternoon will not cover much area. We will continue to advertise 
higher-than-climo probability of precipitation in light of the high precipitable waters ...but convection 
is not expected to be especially robust in the weak lapse rate/ 
modestly unstable regime. Localized heavy rainfall will be of some 
concern in light of the high moisture content and weak steering 
flow. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
at 200 PM EDT Wednesday...on Friday morning an upper ridge will be 
along the eastern Seaboard...while a trough will be over The 
Rockies. The eastern ridge begins to break down on Saturday. 
Meanwhile...the deamplifying upper trough progresses to the Southern 
Plains...reaching the lower MS River Valley on Saturday night. 


At the surface...Atlantic ridging will over the Carolinas and Georgia 
will be reinforced by high pressure centered over eastern Canada. 
Low level moisture will remain banked up against the southern 
Appalachians...with only weak isentropic upglide and upslope flow 
into the Blue Ridge. The surface high moves offshore on Saturday... 
but the ridge maintains a foothold on Georgia and the Carolinas. Limited 
instability will be present both days...chiefly over the mountains 
on the western periphery of the upper ridge...but shear is expected 
to be relatively tame. Temperatures will exhibit a reduced diurnal 
range due to clouds and moisture. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...models remain in good agreement with a 
broad upper trough crossing the northeastern Continental U.S. And eroding the 
upper ridge over the eastern Seaboard on Sunday. A broad surface 
high will build into the Midwest...slowly pushing a cold front 
towards the southeast late Sunday and into Monday. The boundary will 
then stall out over the Appalachians and weaken slightly early in 
the work week. 


As the frontal boundary approaches Sunday and Monday...probability of precipitation increase 
once again...with the GFS driving the boundary in slightly faster 
than the European model (ecmwf). While not particularly impressive at this 
time...weak shear and instability look to be present Monday through 
the end of the extended period...suggesting storms with some 
organization are possible with a diurnal peak. Confidence is lower 
Tuesday-Wednesday...but models suggest the boundary will be slow to 
clear the area...so probability of precipitation will remain above climatology through the end of 
the period. Moist south/southwesterly flow will will keep highs and 
lows well above climatology on Sunday...with cloud cover dropping highs to 
near normal and lows remaining above average for the work week. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Wednesday through Monday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...periods of MVFR ceilings will be possible at 
most terminals during the first couple of hours of the forecast 
period...with scattered/broken clouds in the 035-045 range expected into the 
evening hours. The combination of widespread low clouds and some 
middle-level moisture has resulted in minimal instability developing 
across the region so far this afternoon...and still Don/T really see 
any signs that deep convection is imminent near the terminals... 
while the best chances through the remainder of the afternoon will 
be east of kclt. Nevertheless...expect isolated/widely scattered 
convection to develop over much of the area this afternoon as clouds 
continue to thin and instability increases. However...with 
instability expected to remain on the weak side and the expectation 
of limited coverage...opted to limit the mention to a vcsh at all 
terminals except kavl...where a thunderstorms in the vicinity will east carried. Otherwise... 
chances for visby/ceiling restrictions will increase again tonight... 
but a transition to more of a SW flow regime is expected to result 
in lower chances for ceiling restrictions than seen in recent days. MVFR 
visby is forecast at most terminals...with IFR conditions at kavl. 


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.
