NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
629 am EDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
Canadian high pressure over the area will lead to well below normal 
temperatures more typical of late Summer or early autumn. As the 
surface high weakens...moisture will return for the weekend 
increasing the chances of widespread showers and thunderstorms. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 600 am EDT Wednesday...current forecast remains on track. 
Although all time record low at kavl has officially been 
tied...latest satellite difference product and observation indicate 
development of low level stratus in the region. This will likely 
inhibit any further cooling thus protecting the record. Tweaked 
temperatures and dewpoints in the extreme near term to reflect 
latest observational trends. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 300 am EDT Wednesday...upper vortex centered over eastern 
Ontario continues to rotate while its trough remains draped to the 
south across the eastern United States. As the primary trough axis 
shifts eastward...expecting a slow rise in upper heights across the 
southern/central Apps. At the surface...high pressure building in 
from the northwest will slowly slide east through the period. The 
combination of departing upper trough...rising heights aloft...and 
dominate high pressure at the surface will once again yield a nice 
day across the region. Forecast will feature no mentionable probability of precipitation 
through the period with the exception of a few hours this afternoon 
where weak upslope showers are possible in the climatology favored regions 
of the upper French Broad. 


Aside from that...expecting partly cloudy skies as moisture in the 
low levels condenses leading to scattered fair weather cumulus. Northerly 
winds through the period will remain in the 5-8kts range with some 
minor gusting possible in/around the French Broad valley due to 
channeling. Temperatures through the near term will remain below 
normal. That said...there will be some moderation in the mountains 
late in the period as overnight lows on Thursday morning will be a 
few degrees warmer...yet still below normal. These slightly warmer 
temperatures combined with light/calm winds overnight could lead to 
reemergence of patchy Mountain Valley fog by middle morning Thursday. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 315 am...the deep broad upper trough over the eastern Continental U.S. Remains 
the dominant weather feature through the short range. The axis of 
the trough sets up over the MS River Valley and sharpens through the 
period. In addition...the ridge over the Atlantic builds west toward 
the East Coast. This develops then strengthens the southwesterly flow over 
the County warning forecast area Thursday the period. A series of short waves move through the flow 
and across the area through this time...while the right entrance region 
of the upper jet sets up across the area increasing upper 
divergence. Low level S to southeast flow develops across the area in 
response to a weak 850 mb low slowly moving into the area. Although the 
low level moisture becomes widespread...the flow is not very strong. 
At the surface...the pattern takes on a wedge like configuration as high 
pressure ridges over the area from the NE while a surface front moves 
north to the Atlantic coast. The front becomes stationary there as 
weak waves of low pressure move along the front. All this leads to 
slowly increasing chance pop across the County warning forecast area. However...there is still 
some question on where the best precipitation coverage develops. Better 
coverage could develop to our southeast closer to the surface front...it could 
be along the Blue Ridge in the better upslope flow...or it could 
even be west of the Blue Ridge across the NC mountains where better 
forcing from the 850 mb low moves. For now...chance pop mountains and slight 
chance elsehwere Thursday as moisture and lift will only be slowly ramping 
up. Pop becomes likely across the mountains and northern tier with solid chance 
pop elsehwere Thursday night...Friday and Friday night. Instability does slowly 
increase through the period as middle level cap erodes leading to an 
increase in isolated to scattered thunderstorms and rain. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are in question as 
well. For now...have the highest quantitative precipitation forecast along and west of the Blue 
Ridge...but no heavy rain. Highs around 5 degrees below normal Thursday 
fall to around 10 degrees below normal Friday. Lows near normal Thursday 
night fall to around 5 degrees below Friday night. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 am...southwesterly flow remains across the area early in the medium 
range as the upper trough axis only slowly moves east. This keeps the 
moist southerly flow and wedge like ridge-front pattern in place on Sat 
then slowly breaks it down on sun. This means solid chance to likely 
pop and below normal temperatures continue Thursday Sun night. 


The guidance then develops an upper low to our west on Monday. The GFS 
slowly moves the low into the area by Tuesday...while the European model (ecmwf) has the 
low developing near the Gulf Coast and retrogrades it on Tuesday. Even 
though the guidance differs...both models show scattered diurnal convection 
Monday and Tuesday. The main difference is the GFS has much more quantitative precipitation forecast. For 
now...have diurnal scattered coverage each day. Temperatures show a slow warming 
trend both days. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...VFR conditions will prevail through the period. Increasing 
lapse rates this afternoon through shallow moist layer will yield 
fair weather cumulus coverage. Kept mention of low VFR clouds into the 
overnight as latest guidance indicate weak low level moisture 
advection late in the period as boundary layer flow begins to veer 
more easterly. Otherwise...winds will remain northerly and in the 
5-8kts range. 


Elsewhere...much the same as kclt above with VFR conditions 
prevailing through the period with the exception of possible MVFR 
level fog/stratus at kavl Thursday morning. Scattered/broken fair weather VFR cumulus 
will highlight the skies today with some of this sky cover lingering 
through the period...especially at the SC sites and khky where 
moisture begins to advect in near the end of the period. Winds will 
remain generally out of the north with some northeasterly veering 
flow at the SC sites this afternoon as high pressure slides east 
across the central Apps. 


Outlook...moisture will increase through the remainder of the work 
week as east southeasterly flow resumes. This will yield unsettled 
weather with enhanced precipitation chances along with morning 
fog/stratus through the weekend.
