NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1044 PM EDT Thursday Sep 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
a back door cold front is expected to push across the region on 
Friday followed by a cool and moist area of high pressure which 
will persist through through the Holiday weekend...bringing clouds 
and increased chances of precipitation. A gradual warming trend 
and more summerlike conditions will return Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 1030 PM...only an isolated shower/thunderstorm left across 
McDowell County at update time. Grids in good shape for the most 
part with only minor tweaks to account for updated trends. 


As of 800 PM...convection has diminished significantly across the 
area...and reduced probability of precipitation accordingly. Reduced sky cover as well. 
Temperatures dropping a little more quickly than forecast so updated trends 
but so far overnight lows still look on track for the most part. 


As of 430 PM...very little change needed to grids at this time. Made 
some minor tweaks to temperatures and dewpoints based on observation. Probability of precipitation look 
good given current convective coverage. Still concern as mentioned 
below for an isolated strong to possibly severe thunderstorm 
especially extreme south given SBCAPE values greater than 2000 j/kg. 


As of 230 PM...seeing convection blossoming over north Georgia at the 
back edge of the thicker cloud cover centered over the Savannah 
River valley and east central Georgia. Main concern for the afternoon 
continues to be low level moisture pooled near the csra that extends 
up into the lakelands. While it is suspected that bad dewpoints (in the 
middle 70s) are inflating buoyancy estimates in that region...even if 
we throw away the suspicious observation and go only with kahn and kgrd...we 
still have around 3000 j/kg of cape to go with 1000 j/kg of dcape. 
That sort of environment in the Summer usually would support 
thunderstorms...with some strong to severe. Yet...the convection 
allowing models still are not on board with developing much in that 
area. It is not known if the models initialized properly with the 
moisture pool being better than expected. The latest runs of the WRF- 
arw and 4km WRF for Storm Prediction Center show a bit more development...so perhaps the 
trend is in that direction. With that in mind...will raise the 
precipitation probability into the chance range in all NE Georgia and the 
lakelands. Best to keep an eye out for a few strong/severe storms as 
well...just in case. The rest of the forecast area looks OK. No changes 
to maximum temperatures. Still expect any shower/thunderstorm activity to wane around 
sunset with loss of heating. 


The next 24 hours feature a strange and convoluted pattern aloft 
which basically results in a weak northwest flow...with a weak short wave 
dropping down across the region on Friday that lacks DPVA. Expect a 
general lack of middle/upper forcing...which means that any threat for 
precipitation will be almost entirely driven by diurnal heating. In spite 
of a weak NE flow near the surface courtesy of weak low pressure 
along the coast and high pressure well to the NE...the model 
guidance develops sufficient instability to allow for scattered deep 
convection across the whole forecast area Friday afternoon. So...little 
change was made to the previous forecast which had a chance pop 
everywhere by middle/late afternoon. Went on the high side of guidance 
again for temperatures based on recent verification. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
as of 230 PM Thursday...our area remains caught in between the 
westerly flow aloft... which is located well to the north...and an 
upper trough meandering across the southeast quarter of the Continental U.S.. 
meanwhile high pressure edging from the New England states down to 
the middle Atlantic...will help push a "backdoor cold front" into the 
region Friday night and into the upcoming weekend. 


We would expect diural showers and thunderstorms to initially wane 
Friday evening...then an uptick in our eastern forecast area (fa) 
Friday night. The easterly flow should continue to draw Atlantic 
moisture into the region Saturday with probability of precipitation steadily increasing in 
our western forecast area. We have brought highest probability of precipitation Saturday and Saturday 
night along the east facing slopes with good upglide expected. Also 
during this period the models are suggesting weak upper level 
impulses will be passing through the region...helping the overall 
forcing for precipitation potential. 


Although the overall set-up remains staged Saturday night and 
Sunday... forcing should diminish along with deepest moisture. We 
have kept probability of precipitation going over the western half of the area with clouds 
elsewhere. 


Because of the clouds...precipitation potential and a falling 
thermal pattern...maximum temperatures will continue to follow the 
previous forecast with values near or slight under guide. This will 
also lend itself to smaller diurnal trends...as overnight low 
temperatures being held in check by cloudiness. The latest model 
guide continues to display this trend. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 130 PM Thursday...early next week the easterly flow regime over 
the Carolinas will gradually break down as heights fall over the 
northestern Continental U.S. And ridge builds over the western Atlantic. A developing low 
offshore Sunday night will enhance moisture transport into the County warning forecast area 
from the east. Southwest low level flow does not really re-establish 
itself until late Tuesday or possibly even Wednesday. Meanwhile 
an initially strong low developing in the Lee of the northern rockies 
will move toward Hudson Bay...with heights falling over the north 
central Continental U.S. In response. A cold front associated with the system will 
push southeastward...and while GFS/ec differ on its depicted strength they 
agree it will reach the tenn valley and southern Appalachians by Thursday 
night. In summary...for the forecast period the County warning forecast area will be under 
a somewhat nebulous weak ridge followed by a weak trough in advance 
of the frontal passage. Except for the lingering possibility of overnight 
sprinkles or light showers Sunday night...probability of precipitation will remain strongly 
diurnal. Tuesday appears to be the day under the least influence of 
either the easterly flow or the approaching trough...and therefore 
bears the lowest probability of precipitation overall. Maximum temperatures will start out at about 
normal Monday with the wedgelike airmass still present...but as 
this retreats they will begin to warm...ending up several degrees 
above normal by Thursday with continued modification. Mins will be a 
couple degrees above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...generally VFR through the period. Mainly 
just some high clouds overnight. Could see some fog in some of the 
mountain valleys overnight and continued the trend of MVFR fog at 
kavl around daybreak. Expect another round of 5-8kft cumulus again Friday 
late morning and early afternoon. Introduced prob30 thunderstorms and rain Friday 
afternoon for Friday afternoon convection. Winds will remain north to NE 
and light through the period. 


Outlook...over the weekend...a moist easterly flow should develop... 
bringing better chances for showers and restrictions...in particular 
on Saturday. Low clouds and fog will be possible each night in the 
mountain valleys.
