NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
755 PM EDT Monday Jul 6 2015 


Synopsis... 
a broad upper ridge will strengthen and migrate over the southeast 
into the weekend. Shower and thunderstorm chances will favor the 
afternoon and evening. Temperatures will increase above normal 
levels. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
as of 735 PM...showers and storms were isolated close to the 
Blue Ridge near the upper French Broad valley. Think the downward 
trend should continue through the middle part of the evening... 
which the forecast generally has indicated well. Temperature trends were much 
improved and should be okay through middle/late evening. 


Remainder of previous discussion... 


In regard to the big picture...the remnants of the upper trough was 
gradually lifting to the NE along with a lobe of vorticity noted in 
the infrared imagery. This weak forcing should move NE of the western 
Carolinas early tonight. In its wake...a weak area of surface high 
pressure will build over the area tonight. Hence for the 
overnight...it should become mostly clear with some fog developing 
in the mountain valleys. Minimum temperatures will be mild with lows in the 
upper 60s to around 70 outside the mountains...with upper 50s to middle 
60s mountains. 


Tuesday is shaping up to be a typical July day with plenty of 
sunshine and very warm temperatures. Differential heating and weak 
upslope flow in the mountains will trigger scattered afternoon 
thunderstorms there. It looks like the remainder of the area should 
remain dry except perhaps for the foothills where some mountain 
storms may drift in late in the day. Maximum temperatures will be a couple 
degrees above climatology. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
of 230 PM EDT Monday... the short term part of the forecast still 
continues a theme for the retrogression of the Bermuda high into our 
forecast area (fa) Tuesday night and Wednesday...albeit not yet 
firmly entrenched. The upper air pattern then takes on a west-southwesterly look 
at that time...with packets of energy moving through the flow... 
especially on our northern and western periphery. 


Convection Tuesday night in the mountains should wane with loss of 
heating...although along the Tennessee/North Carolina state line a 
few cells may try to hold on a little longer with weak forcing 
aloft. 


Meanwhile on Wednesday...there appears to be enough instability... 
and heights have not reached their apex yet...plus tail of energy 
packets (dpva) moving through the mean flow...for a chance pop 
forecast in the mountain and slight chance elsewhere. We just need 
to keep an eye on any convection north of our region...in a waffling 
frontal pattern...trying to turn southeastward toward our northern forecast area. The 
NAM subtly implies something like this heading off to our east... 
therefore a note of caution. 


Once again convection will wane Wednesday night. It appears ridging 
aloft will be building in full force Thursday. We have kept the probability of precipitation 
on the very low side...basically trying to emphasis the higher 
terrain locations. We were a little concerned with the Lee side 
troffing providing a weak focus around the region...thus probability of precipitation just 
into the slight category...which fits well with our neighbors. 


We have followed the temperature profile of the models which bring 
temperatures up during this part of the cycle...as ridging and heat 
begin another surge. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
at 200 PM EDT Monday...on Friday an upper ridge will extend from the 
Gulf states to the Great Lakes. The ridge amplifies almost to Hudson 
Bay on Saturday...then retrogresses to the Southern Plains by 
Sunday...and to the southern rockies by Monday. 


At the surface...high pressure will be centered over the southern 
Appalachians on Friday...with a Lee trough over the Piedmont...while 
a stationary front resides over the Ohio River valley. On Saturday the 
western portion of the front dips south into NC...but by Sunday it 
is expected to return north as a warm front. Monday features a an 
improved pressure gradient and resulting westerly flow...as the 
retrogressing upper ridge allows for East Coast troughing and a dip 
of the westerlies to our latitude. 


Instability is expected to be limited early on under the upper 
ridge...although no capping inversion is depicted in model 
soundings. As the upper ridge slides west...more robust instability 
appears by the weekend. Steering flow will be quite light under the 
ridge...but improves as the ridge departs and winds pick up with 
East Coast troughing. Temperatures will run above normal...with a 
slight decline late in the forecast as heights fall aloft with the 
departure of the ridge. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...VFR conditions are expected through the period. One 
interesting feature of note is an outflow boundary seen on the tclt 
imagery moving down from earlier convection over the northwest Piedmont. 
The boundary appears to be decelerating over northern Mecklenburg County 
well north of the airfield so there is some doubt that it will ever make 
it as far S as kclt...as there is no remnant convection left to 
reinforce its southward movement. Even if it makes it to kclt...the wind 
speed should be only on the order 5-8 knots. Have opted to not indicate 
a wind shift but will monitor. If it does happen...it will be around 
01z and should wash out by 03z. For the rest of the overnight... 
expect a light S wind...and some remnant high clouds. On 
Tuesday...wind should come up from the S/SW around the time we get a 
few cumulus developing late morning/midday. Chance of deep convection 
appears to be too remote in the afternoon...so will not mention any 
vcsh or prob30 in the taf. 


Elsewhere...in the very near term kavl has the best chance for 
precipitation...but heating will be lost in short order which should put 
the brakes on further development. Will handle this with a thunderstorms in the vicinity for 
the first few hours. Otherwise...only some high convective debris 
clouds this evening with light S winds around the region. Could be 
some Mountain Valley fog at kavl with the middle level drying moving in...so 
visibility was taken down to MVFR then IFR by daybreak at kavl. The other 
place with some possibility of low visible was kand...which is handled 
with a brief MVFR around daybreak. All locations should be VFR after 
13z. Similar to kclt...wind should come up from the S/SW with a few 
convective clouds developing during midday. Only the NC mountains appear 
to have much of a chance of precipitation...so only kavl gets a prob30 for 
middle to late afternoon. 


Outlook...scattered afternoon/evening thunderstorms are possible over the 
area through late week...mainly in the mountains...with associated 
restrictions under the heaviest showers. Low clouds and fog could 
develop in the morning at places that have shower activity the day 
before.
