NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
214 PM EDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will the cross area through this evening and move 
southeast of the region overnight. High pressure will build in 
behind the front for Friday and the weekend. Another front is 
expected to reach the area on Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
at 215 PM...radar beginning to light up with quite a bit of 
convection developing. At this time...it is just scattered in nature...but 
would expect to see some consolidation later in the afternoon over 
the Piedmont when the approaching front/Lee trough provide more of a 
focus. With convective available potential energy between 2500-3000j and 0-6km bulk shear 25-30kts a 
few severe storms still look to be a good bet. Some storms my perist 
into the 00z-03z timeframe as the cold front only slowly slips 
southeast of the region. 


Otherwise as the front moves out of the area tonight...high pressure to 
the north will build southward bringing a somewhat dryer airmass 
into the area. However...low level moisture will remain elevated 
overnight and with winds becoming light fog should develop 
throughout the mountain valleys...and also across parts of the 
Piedmont. 


On Friday...even with the remants of the front remaining south of 
the area...winds are forecast to veer to the southeast during the 
afternoon. The light upslope component and weakening cap may allow for 
a few isolated mountain showers Friday afternoon. Maximum temperatures will top 
out a couple degrees below climatology. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
as of 130 PM Thursday...upper heights initially rise Friday night as a trough 
lifts away from the East Coast...but remain nearly steady thereafter 
leaving our region under slightly cyclonic flow over the weekend. By 
late Sunday however heights begin to fall again as another shortwave 
digs into the Midwest. At the surface weak high pressure will persist 
over the southeastern Continental U.S. Along with light southwesterly to westerly flow. 


For Saturday the main difficulty is to determine whether the surface high 
will provide enough subsidence to stifle diurnal convection. Models 
differ rather widely in their depiction of the cap. 09z sref member 
soundings mostly show a significant midlevel inversion...but the 
members which are uncapped show cape values a bit higher than climatology 
given the lack of ridging aloft. Dry middle-upper levels and lack of 
shear imply pulse-Mode threats if any cells are to fire. On the other 
hand...GFS/gefs imply capping and accordingly have no quantitative precipitation forecast response. 
Overall support seems to be better for a dry forecast...thus I have 
maintained it. High temperatures will be about normal for Saturday. 


The potential capping is a critical question for Sunday...but at that 
time there is the added issue of whether the cold front plowing across 
the Ohio/Tennessee valleys will have any impact during peak heating. Earlier 
model runs suggested the front would be near enough to put our area 
in a more favorable environment for strong storms Sunday afternoon...but 
latest guidance has delayed it and a fair number of the latest runs 
again keep convection to a minimum over the County warning forecast area. Ensemble solutions 
lend some support though...and in light of the uncertain model trends 
and continued expectation that the front will be nearby...low probability of precipitation 
have been kept Sunday afternoon...ramping up into Sunday night. Temperatures will 
inch up slightly further Sunday under higher thicknesses in the southwesterly 
flow. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 150 PM Thursday...substantial/anomalously strong upper height 
falls will be introduced to the eastern Continental U.S. Early in the medium 
range period...allowing a cold front to push toward the region. The 
latest global model runs have continued a recent trend of drier 
pre-frontal air and a weaker quantitative precipitation forecast response with the front in the late 
Sunday night/early Monday time frame. In fact...a consensus seems to 
be developing that probabilities for showers will be very low... 
except perhaps across the southern and eastern fringe of our 
Piedmont areas Monday afternoon...when the front will have a little 
more in the way of buoyancy to work with. Nevertheless...early next 
week is still too far in the future for US to get too cute with 
timing the position of the front...and these scenarios typically 
evolve more slowly than advertised by the models this time of year. 
Therefore...will generally feature a shotgunned chance pop across 
the County warning forecast area throughout Monday...diminishing to slight chance or less by 
evening. 


The remainder of the forecast periods looks very similar to what was 
experienced about a week ago...when an unusually cool/dry air mass 
became established over the region underneath an anomalously strong 
eastern trough. If anything...this air mass pay prove to be a little 
more persistent than last week/S. Temperatures are expected to be 5-10 
degrees below climatology through the period...while a halt in diurnal 
convection is expected through at least Wednesday. 


By the end of the period...there are signs that...again similar to 
last week/S events...the trough will effectively retrograde... 
allowing moisture to return within a developing wedge-like scenario. 
Probability of precipitation and clouds will therefore begin to increase by the end of the 
period...with temperatures remaining cool within a developing easterly low 
level flow regime. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...a cold front approaching along with an upper trough should 
trigger numerous showers/thunderstorms near and/or over the airfield 
this afternoon. Hence...have a tempo for thunderstorms and rain with restrictions and gusty 
winds until 23z. Things will calm down overnight. However...most 
guidance suggests that MVFR clouds will develop toward sunrise with 
some light fog. This should dissipate by 14z. 


Elsewhere...all terminals will likely see thunderstorms with 
restrictions and gusty winds this afternoon as a cold front moves 
into the area. The storms will move out of the area this evening. 
The overnight will quiet down but some IFR fog is a good bet at kavl 
where cross over over temperature will be met. 


Outlook...Friday night through Sunday morning should be quiet and 
VFR...except for the mountain valleys where early morning fog may occur. 
Thunderstorms will return to the forecast for Sunday afternoon 
through Monday as another cold front approaches and then moves through 
the area on Monday.
