NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
323 am EDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will persist over the region through Wednesday...with 
continued warm temperatures. A weak cold front will approach the 
area from the northwest on Thursday and settle just south of the 
region on Friday. The front will likely remain stalled just south of 
the area through the weekend...with cooler temperatures expected. 
Moisture should increasingly return northward over the front the 
latter half of the weekend into early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 320 am...radar indicated weak isolated showers across the NC 
Piedmont with another cluster sliding east toward the north four NC 
counties. Cams indicate that the convection will gradually dissipate 
across the mountains...with a few rain showers lingering across the Piedmont 
through sunrise. This afternoon...near term models show the center 
of the 500 mb high over the Central Plains...with northwest to southeast heights 
across the western Carolinas. Recent west/v images indicated that well 
develop vorticity maximum was moving over the western Ohio River valley. 0z 
runs of the near term models did resolve this feature very 
well...but the NAM appears the best initialized with the feature. 
The vorticity should track southeast through the day...reaching the southern 
Appalachians by early this evening. Forecast soundings show greater 
instability and lower level of free convection this afternoon compared to the past 
several days. Given the approach of the middle level feature and more 
supportive thermal profiles...I will forecast 40 probability of precipitation across the 
mountains and 30 probability of precipitation east. The center of the vorticity is expected to pass to 
the SW...however...convection across the forecast area may remain well into the 
evening. I will keep scattered probability of precipitation in the forecast until midnight. High 
temperatures this afternoon will remain comparable to the past two 
days...slightly cooler than yesterday. 


Tonight...convection after midnight is forecast to remain 
sparse...but enough to support schc probability of precipitation. Periods of debris 
clouds...mild thicknesses...and light south low level winds should keep 
min temperatures mild. Using a blend of preferred guidance...I will 
forecast lows in the upper 60s within the mountain valleys to low 70s 
east. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
as of 245 am EDT Tuesday...a broad upper ridge will stretch across 
the southern tier of the United States on Wednesday. Weak lobes of 
vorticity may drop southward through the western Carolinas Wednesday 
afternoon along the eastern periphery of the ridge. Mountain triggering 
of convection is likely early Wednesday afternoon...especially along the 
eastern slopes where low level convergence will be best. Any early to 
middle afternoon mountain activity may develop eastward off the higher 
terrain into the Piedmont through the evening and early overnight 
hours. 


Gradual height falls are then expected through Thursday...but with 
the best shortwave energy associated with a vigorous northern stream wave 
passing north of the area from the Ohio Valley to the middle Atlantic through 
Thursday night. The developing trough will allow a cold front to arrive 
in the southern Appalachians from the northwest Thursday afternoon...but 
it will likely stall over the lower Piedmont through early Friday 
morning. Above climatology temperatures will persist through the period. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 245 am EDT Tuesday...more prominent height falls are expected 
on Friday...with an eastern Continental U.S. Trough developing and lingering 
over the region through the weekend into early next week. The 
stalled boundary along the southern periphery of the area will allow 
deeper moisture to remain close by...but with some measure of drying 
arriving from the north Friday into Saturday. A decent north to S 
gradient of slight chance to solid chance probability of precipitation will be warranted 
both afternoons. Maximum temperatures will fall to or below climatology values. 


There is some potential for a weak disturbance in the NE Gulf of 
Mexico to get entrained into the trough and feed even better 
moisture northward through the Piedmont of the Carolinas Sunday through 
Monday. Will keep associated probability of precipitation fairly conservative in the chance 
category given the uncertainty...but continued cooler maximum temperatures 
looks more likely with no 90s expected anywhere in the County Warning Area Sunday to 
Monday. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...recent satellite images and observations indicated 
widespread middle level clouds across the I-77 corridor. The thick middle 
level cloud cover should gradually dissipate through sunrise. 
Forecast soundings and several MOS member indicate that MVFR 
ceilings may develop one to two hours after sunrise...remaining 
through most of the morning. I will use a tempo during the 12z to 
15z formation period...followed by a from ground for bkn030 at 15z. 
Cams and persistence support a prob30 between 19z to 23z for thunderstorms and rain. 
Winds should remain between 140-170 degrees around 5 kts through the 
period. 


Elsewhere...mostly clear sky...calm winds...and 2 degree dewpoint 
depressions may yield IFR fog at kavl by sunrise. I will include a 
tempo in the kavl taf from 10z to 13z for IFR fog and MVFR ceilings. 
Khky may also see IFR conditions around sunrise. Otherwise...I will 
monitor trends this morning...but will side with VFR at this time. 
The afternoon approach of a weak middle level disturbance should yield 
a round of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain late this afternoon and evening. I will include 
a prob30 in each taf...generally between 20z to 24z. 


Outlook...a middle level ridge will remain across the western Carolinas 
through middle week. A longwave trough will amplify across the Atlantic 
state late in the week...with the likely passage of a cold front on 
Friday. The potential for convection will increase each day this 
week.
