NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
708 am EDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Synopsis... 
a broad upper level trough will remain over the southeast through 
Monday...providing lift and maintaining elevated rain and 
thunderstorm chances each day. Slightly drier conditions return 
Tuesday and Wednesday...before a front becomes nearly stationary 
just north of our region late in the week. High temperatures will 
remain below average into Monday...then warm to around seasonal 
normals for the rest of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 630 am EDT Sunday...other than a few light showers along the 
i85 corridor this morning...conditions remain rather quiet/dry. 
Backed off on probability of precipitation through the morning as cams have come to a 
consensus on less convection...while the 06z NAM continues to 
indicate better coverage. Thus placed a little less Faith in the 
NAM with this update. That said...do think the current rain showers 
coverage will sustain and slowly advect northeast but should remain 
scattered at best. Otherwise...tweaked sky/temps/dews to better 
reflect most recent observation and left the remainder of the forecast as is. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 315 am EDT Sunday...closed 500 mb low continues to rotate atop the 
Tennessee Valley this morning leading to deep SW flow through the profile 
over northeast Georgia and the western Carolinas. Weak upper divergence 
beneath rear entrance region of h250 jetmax along with a series of 
vorticity impulses wrapping around the 500 mb low continue to support weak 
convection across the western tier of the forecast area this morning. A 
stronger impulse is prognosticated by guidance to round the base of the 
longwave trough around daybreak leading to additional convective 
initiation across eastcentral Georgia. Although weak...instability will 
increase through middle morning ahead of said activity yielding a 
favorable environment for convection along the i85 corridor. 


Meanwhile further north...the old stalled boundary will be advecting 
northward into SW Virginia which will shift the focus for best surface 
convergence and thus residual model quantitative precipitation forecast today. That said...cannot 
rule out continued heavy rain and flash flooding threat over the 
mountains thanks to proximity of upper low and any upslope enhancement 
from modest south-southwest low level jet. The forecast features numerous/widespread showers 
and isolated thunderstorms over the Georgia/NC high terrain this 
morning/afternoon. Probability of precipitation are tapered down a bit outside of the mountains 
where scattered/numerous levels are favored. All said...after the 
passage of the initial impulse/convection this morning there should 
be a lull before any afternoon convection gets underway. Even 
then...models favor rather weak instability profiles thus would be 
surprised to see anything more than garden variety thunderstorms and rain with the 
best chances for stronger cells being south of the i85 corridor where 
best heating is likely. Probability of precipitation will taper through the overnight into 
Monday morning as the upper low begins ejecting northeast. With 
that...the current Flash Flood Watch will continue as planned with 
expiration at 00z Monday. Temperatures on Sunday will remain below 
normal amidst partly/mostly cloudy skies. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 300 am Sunday...upper low begins to fill and lift northeastward Monday 
as a larger scale shortwave and surface low move across the north central 
Continental U.S.. at least through early afternoon the low will still be in position to 
enhance lift over the northern half of the County warning forecast area. However some significant 
differences are noted in the NAM and GFS depictions of the feature. 
GFS more quickly brings in subsidence in its wake...so far as to have 
resolved a weak surface high moving over the area during the afternoon. The 
NAM features more favorable lapse rates due to lower heights during 
the day...suggesting better convective coverage than the GFS. It is 
difficult to tell how the better forcing early in the day will 
balance with the expectation for more instability late. Probability of precipitation reflect 
somewhat of a compromise...with mentionable values throughout the 
morning...and a peak earlier than the time of peak heating. Precipitable water values 
will take a hit as drying occurs behind the departing low...but 
otherwise some heavy rain threat will remain mainly due to slow storm 
motion vectors. Maximum temperatures will warm up a category or so but remain 
below climatology. 


Coverage should diminish Monday evening...but southwest flow continues 
into the area Monday night...with weak warm advection over the southeastern 
states ahead of the system moving across to our north. This warrants a 
Low Mountain pop overnight. Mins will be near climatology Tuesday morning. 


By Tuesday the subtropical ridge will have regained footing over the 
southeast and no significant upper features are expected to affect 
the County warning forecast area...though heights fall slightly Tuesday night as the northern stream 
low moves east. So diurnal instability will be the main driver for 
Tuesday probability of precipitation...chances ending up close to climatology for early July. Profiles 
will be substantially drier in the upper levels and the flow will 
have weakened allowing shear parameters to return to seasonably small 
values. Pulse storms producing gusty winds and hail will return as 
our main concern. Temperatures will top out around normal. Wednesday night low 
probability of precipitation were maintained near the tenn border with a cold front possibly 
sinking into the Ohio/Tennessee valleys. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
as of 200 am Sunday...the medium range begins 12z Wednesday as a 
frontal boundary steered by an upper trough over the 
Central Plains/Great Lakes region continues its eastward progression 
towards the forecast area. 500 mb heights on Wednesday and Thursday will be 
roughly west to east with a broad 591 height closed off anticyclone 
over the Gulf coastal region. On Friday into Saturday this pattern 
will strengthen further into a closed 594 height. This 500mb pattern 
center will be over roughly MS and la on the GFS and over North Texas 
on the European model (ecmwf). Most of the expected convective systems are expected to 
mainly affect the NC mountains as the flow over the top of the ridge brings 
impulses across Kentucky and Virginia. The trend in the latest model runs are to 
keep the surface front to the north of our region until at least the 
weekend. This is evident in both the GFS and European model (ecmwf). Temperatures will be around 
normal from Wednesday through Friday...then may go slightly above normal on 
Saturday as the ridge builds. However...if the ridge builds farther 
west as a dip in The Heights occurs over the Carolinas...that would 
tend to lower our temperatures a bit. 


&& 


Aviation /11z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...VFR conditions will prevail through the taf cycle with the 
possible exception of MVFR restrictions associated afternoon thunderstorms and rain. 
Initialized taf with light SW winds under broken high clouds with a 1hr 
tempo from 12z-13z to account for IFR/MVFR stratus sliding along the 
i85 corridor. Otherwise...gusty SW winds today with scattered low VFR 
clouds under broken middle level cirrostratus. Prob30 carries over from 
previous taf cycle to account for any additional convective 
development this afternoon. Would note confidence in convective 
initiation/timing is low along the i77 corridor as cam guidance favors 
low coverage yet 06z NAM remains robust. Winds will subside after 
sunset as the mixed layer erodes along with rising middle/high level 
ceilings. 


Elsewhere...a mixture of VFR/MVFR and IFR to headline this taf 
cycle. Initialized all SC tafs MVFR with an IFR scattered deck associated 
with stratus along the i85 corridor...which should erode within the 
first two hours of the forecast cycle. Otherwise...as stated above 
confidence in precipitation occurrence/timing is modest at best as it 
pertains to any sites outside of kavl this morning therefore only 
vcsh was mentioned...no weather elsewhere. As for this afternoon prob30s 
are featured at the SC sites while kavl/khky have prevailing rain showers 
with thunderstorms in the vicinity. Winds will remain gusty out of the SW at the SC sites 
and slightly weaker further north over the NC sites. 


Outlook...the pattern will finally return to more of a diurnal 
nature on Monday as the upper low ejects northeast. This diurnal 
precipitation trend will persist through most of the work week. 
Restrictions will remain a possibility each afternoon due to 
shra/tsra...and also each morning where previous rains have occurred.
