NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1044 am EDT Tuesday Aug 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will weaken today as a weak cold front drops south 
toward our region. Low level moisture will gradually return through 
the work week as this cold front approaches from the area from the 
northwest. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1030 am EDT...there remains little to no convective activity 
along the frontal zone draped to the north this morning...but recent 
hrrr runs still feature convection forming mainly along the northern Blue 
Ridge and expanding eastward across the NC Piedmont through late 
day. Will continue to shade probability of precipitation below MOS and cam guidance since 
the profiles remain fairly dry. Morning sbcapes on the laps analysis 
are already showing some 1200 to 2500 j/kg values...but these may 
drop a touch in the afternoon with dewpoints mixing into the lower 
60s in many areas. The potential for strong thunderstorms appears limited 
with persistent negative energy areas in the profiles this afternoon. The 
maximum temperature forecast appears on track through middle morning...with heat 
index values capped below 100 given the expected dewpoint mixing. 


Otherwise...the broad trough extending from eastern Canada through the southeast 
United States will continue to lift today with heights rising and 
flow becoming more westerly. At the surface...a low pressure center will move 
NE along a frontal boundary near the southeastern coast. Moisture and 
forcing associated with this low will remain well to our east...with 
a cold front dropping south toward the area having a greater effect 
on our sensible weather. 850 to 500 mb lapse rates should steepen to 6.5 
degree c or better. The low level convergence associated with the front 
could be enough to act on the developing instability to create 
isolated to scattered diurnal convection across the mountains the westerly flow 
could drive any convection eastward over the NC Piedmont through 
late day. Have gone isolated there...with a continued dry forecast 
across the upstate and NE Georgia. Convection should diminish during the 
evening...but more mesoscale convective system activity could drop toward the mountains again 
overnight. However...chance too low to include at this time. Lows tonight will 
be up to 5 degrees above normal. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
at 230 am EDT Tuesday...on Wednesday morning an upper trough will be 
over The Rockies...and and upper trough east of the MS river. The 
pattern largely deamplifies by Thursday. A well defined shortwave is 
expected to approach the southern Appalachians on Thursday... 
crossing the area on Thursday night. 


At the surface...a cold front will stall over our area on 
Wednesday...while moisture from the Gulf of Mexico moves north 
toward the boundary. The models even show a weak low spinning up 
along the front near the eastern portion of our area. The models 
disagree on how much instability will be present near the 
front...but agree on increasing moisture. Although precipitation 
coverage is expected to increase...low level flow will generally be 
southwesterly...limiting upslope flow into high terrain. 
Temperatures will run above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
at 230 am EDT Tuesday...on Friday morning a low amplitude upper 
ridge will be over the plains...and a trough will be over the east. 
This pattern slowly progresses such that the trough moves off the 
East Coast on Saturday. The upper ridge amplifies over the center of 
the nation on Sunday...and builds east across the Gulf states. The 
upper trough persist just off the East Coast through Monday. 


At the surface...a nearly stationary front will be in our vicinity 
on Friday...and moves slowly south into Saturday. This system will 
serve as a focusing mechanism for precipitation as moisture spreads 
east along it...and model sounding show enough instability to support 
convection. The boundary is expected to stall well to our south by 
Sunday...while another front approaches from the northwest. The second front 
is expected to stall near the coast on Monday...with ostensibly drier 
air arriving in its wake. Temperatures will run near normal. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...VFR will continue with any morning stratus layer lifting 
and scattering well to the east. Winds remain the primary concern 
through the day...with circulation around the coastal low providing 
more of a northwest surface component which should persist through the 
afternoon hours. Any isolated to scattered convective triggering 
along the Blue Ridge is expected to remain mainly north of the 
airfield this afternoon/evening. Winds will become variable tonight. 
No overnight restrictions will be featured...but once again low 
stratus to the east could develop in the nearby Piedmont. 


Elsewhere...expect VFR through the period at all locations. 
Kavl/khky have the best chance of seeing any convection this 
afternoon...but the chances are too low to include in the tafs at this time. 
Otherwise...expect developing cumulus through the day with broken cirrus. Light 
S to SW winds expected through the day with near calm winds overnight. 
Kavl is the exception with northwest winds. Anticipate little to no chance of 
restrictions overnight. 


Outlook...gradually increasing precipitation/restriction chances are 
expected through the week as moisture returns and a front stalls in 
our vicinity...with a disturbance then moving along it.
