NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
753 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move east of the area Thursday as moist southerly 
flow returns. A cold front will push through northeast Georgia and 
the western Carolinas on Friday evening ahead of drier high pressure 
for the weekend. Moisture will return for the start of the next work 
week as southerly flow increases precipitation chances. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday night/... 
as of 745 PM EDT...strong model consensus continues on the 18z runs 
depicting improving moist upglide in the 4000 to 6000 feet above ground level layer 
from the SW during the overnight hours. This should lead to 
increasing clouds...with min temperatures slightly warmer than a consensus 
of guidance. As the weak upglide and srly upslope flow improves 
toward daybreak...isolated to scattered rain showers should develop in 
the southern mountains 


Return flow moisture will deepen in profiles through Thursday...gradually 
expanding over most of the area. The highest precipitation chances 
will remain focused on the srly upslope areas of the southern mountains and 
immediately adjacent foothills...but with isolated shower chances 
eventually expanding out east to Interstate 77. The solidifying 
cloud deck should keep maxes below guidance Thursday afternoon...especially if 
in situ shallow cold air damming develops east of the Blue Ridge. In 
addition to the moist upglide...a phasing shortwave moving east from 
the plains will cross the region during the afternoon. Higher dewpoints 
and slightly more instability in southern sections may permit isolated to 
scattered thunderstorms to cross the southern tier during the afternoon hours. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday night/... 
as of 245 PM EDT Wednesday...short term begins with shortwave 
pushing through the southeast and gradually damping into the overall 
longwave pattern. Finger of stability along the Lee of the 
Appalachians remains in place at the beginning of the period with 
best thunder chances in the southern and southwest portions of the 
forecast area...diminishing late Thursday evening. Not enough deep- 
layer shear to support much of anything in the way of organized 
convection. 


Expect a bit of a break during the day on Friday behind the 
shortwave. Highs on Friday afternoon should soar back well above 
seasonal normals in response to increasing low-level warm air advection ahead of 
the next front to approach Friday night into early Saturday. GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) have come into much better agreement with the past couple of 
runs and besides the potential for a few upslope showers early 
morning Friday...the main area of precipitation should be pushing 
into the mountains Friday late morning into early afternoon. Best 
area of convection will be more Friday late evening and night when 
of course diurnal trends would minimize cape potential...but even 
the more conservative GFS does bring a band of SBCAPE between 100- 
300 j/kg into the lower Appalachians. The concern is that this 
instability...albeit weak...is collocated with 60+kt 0-6km shear... 
and 30-40kt 0-1km shear. Sherb values overall remain below 1 but 
sref sherb plume forecasts for the area do show at least some sref 
members creeping above 1. Storm Prediction Center day3 outlook overnight did introduce 
marginal risk into the mountains so cannot rule out an isolated 
severe storm or two at this time...will have to monitor the forecast 
evolution. 


Only other minor issue is that depending on timing of falling 
temperatures behind the front...it is possible that some of the 
highest peaks may see a brief changeover to snow early Saturday 
morning. Confidence not particularly high with this and even if it 
were to occur no accumulations would be expected. 


After the front pushes through...all probability of precipitation move out of the area by 
18z Saturday leaving the rest of the day to be pretty nice with 
temperatures below seasonal normals. The dry conditions continue 
into the extended. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Wednesday...extended begins with temperatures below 
seasonal normals and clear conditions behind Saturday/S front...with 
surface high pressure in place and weak northwest flow aloft... 
leading to a nice Easter Sunday. Precipitation spreads across the 
midsouth and deep south late Sunday into early Monday in response to 
a weak shortwave and isentropic lift on the western periphery of the 
surface high that by this point has pushed off into the Atlantic. 
Still some question about quantitative precipitation forecast values as well as how widespread the 
precipitation will be...with GFS a little more robust on Monday than 
the European model (ecmwf)...and have continued trend of generally low chance probability of precipitation 
especially west during the day on Monday. 


Late in the period...another deep trough in The Rockies pushes into 
the plains. Weak ridging aloft over the Gulf combined with the 
deepening trough will produce southwest flow aloft across the 
southeast but again significant uncertainty remains in exactly where 
the subtropical jet might set up. GFS wants to keep a band of 
precipitation across the southeast with the associated front pushing 
into the middle-Atlantic region Tuesday evening whereas the European model (ecmwf) has 
the moist fetch a bit farther north more in the Ohio Valley...with 
the front lingering across the upper Midwest. With these differences 
and resulting fairly low confidence...have kept trend of slight to 
low chance probability of precipitation with a bit of a diurnal trend in thunder potential. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...moisture will return at VFR levels overnight...with a 
stratocumulus ceiling likely by middle morning on Thursday. Deepening moist 
upglide will allow ceilings to lower into the MVFR range through the 
afternoon hours. Spotty light showers cannot be ruled out...but chances 
look too low to mention in the taf at present. Light east-southeast flow will 
gradually become more srly with time through the taf period. 


Elsewhere...VFR level stratocumulus will develop from S to north across 
the mountain and foothill tafs tonight. MVFR ceilings will then become 
increasingly likely through Thursday morning at kavl and the SC sites as 
the moist upglide deepens. There is general consensus among the 
models/MOS on IFR ceilings from kavl to kgsp and points S by early 
afternoon...but the IFR ceilings could be tempo MVFR all afternoon. Will mention 
vcsh with the deepest moisture throughout...and limit prob30 for 
thunderstorms and rain to kand with the upper shortwave interacting with more unstable 
air across the southern part of the terminal area late day. Expect 
easterly winds to toggle southerly over time...but perhaps adjust 
back to easterly in any weak cad regions from kgmu to khky. 


Outlook...moist southeast upslope flow will continue Thursday night 
into Friday morning which will promote MVFR to IFR ceilings. 
Conditions will improve to VFR by Friday afternoon. A cold front 
will affect the area Friday night into early Saturday...bringing 
another round of rain/possible thunderstorms and restrictions. VFR 
will return for the rest of the weekend. 


Confidence table...
