NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
648 am EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
southerly flow induced by a persistent Bermuda high will continue to 
promote diurnal showers and thunderstorms through much of the 
week. A frontal passage will occur on Tuesday evening into 
Wednesday morning with another front passing through over the 
weekend leading to enhanced shower and thunderstorm chances for 
those periods. High pressure will once again regain control by 
early next week behind the above mentioned front leading to slightly 
cooler temperatures and more settled weather. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am...patchy dense Mountain Valley fog across the mountains and 
patchy fog elsehwere will dissipate by middle morning. Elsewhere...broken 
cirrus this morning with high based cumulus developing for the afternoon. 
A few rain showers across the mountains will dissipate by late morning...before 
scattered convection returns for the afternoon. Still expect best chance to 
be across the NC mountains with isolated elsewhere. Otherwise...going 
forecast looks on track with only minor changes. 


As of 305 am...upper ridge and surface Bermuda high will remain in place 
today and tonight. However...a short wave will brush by the mountains 
today. This may be just enough forcing to act on the developing 
instability and differential heating to produce low end scattered 
convection across most of the NC mountains...the French Broad valley 
being the main exception where isolated coverage expected. Outside 
of the NC mountains...atmos will remain capped most of the day with only 
weak instability developing late in the afternoon with relatively 
high level of free convection levels. There will be little in the way of forcing as Lee 
trough sets up east of the County warning forecast area. Have low end isolated convection over 
this area. In fact...there may not be any convection at all along 
and south of the I-85 corridor...but will maintain consistency with 
the low end isolated pop. Highs will again well above normal. 


Convection will dissipate through the evening...but could linger a 
little longer along the Tennessee border before dissipating overnight. Lows 
will also again be above normal. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 305 am EDT Sunday...not a lot of change regarding the short 
term forecast period which initializes Tuesday morning amidst broad 
subtropical deep layer ridging. Amplifying upper trough pushing 
through the upper Mississippi River valley will be moving east with 
an associated cold front draped along or just north of the Ohio 
River valley. Continued southerly flow over the southeast ahead of 
approaching frontal boundary will warrant near climatology probability of precipitation for much 
of the region on a diurnal trend. Above mentioned riding will 
provide some inhibition to convection on Tuesday...especially across 
the east. Weak Lee trough present across central NC/SC could be a 
focus for convection providing enough low level convergence to 
support initiation despite above mentioned cap. Lapse rates across 
the region will be rather steep later in the day as temperatures surge to 
above normal levels...therefore moderate instability could allow for 
enhanced/strong convection across the western most zones where 
updrafts will be less inhibited. Otherwise...expecting general 
showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon/evening ahead of 
approaching front. 


Expecting a nocturnal frontal passage overnight into Wednesday morning with 
the more enhanced upper level support passing by to north. 
Thus...probability of precipitation will actually taper with diurnal cooling through the 
night with only low end chance level probability of precipitation residing across the high 
terrain. Models continue to indicate the front slowing and becoming 
nearly stationary through the remainder of the day on Wednesday as 
the upper flow flattens and parent surface trough ejects to the 
northeast. This will begin a rather nocturnally induced unsettled 
weather period across northeast Georgia and the western Carolinas. Due 
to the slower/stalled progression of the front...expecting any 
surface cooling/drying to be minimal. However...the middle and upper 
levels will experience moderate drying which will actually allow for 
rather steep lapse rates Wednesday afternoon. As the upper ridge 
slowly retrogrades west and the surface high weakens...the 
atmosphere will likely be free for convection amidst profiles 
supporting nearly 1500j/kg SBCAPE. Thus...probability of precipitation will ramp up into 
the afternoon to low end likely levels over the more climatology favored 
regions of the upper French Broad while solid chance probability of precipitation reside 
south of Interstate 40 where frontal boundary remains. Will 
continue to evaluate strong/severe thunderstorm potential on 
Wednesday as profiles would support downburst/hail threats. 
Temperatures through the short term period will remain near or just 
above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 330 am EDT Monday...the extended range forecast period 
initializes Thursday morning with diffuse quasi stationary moisture 
axis from old frontal boundary remaining over the region. 
Meanwhile...upper ridge will rebuild somewhat across the southeast 
with reinforcing surface high pressure sliding east and out to sea 
over the middle Atlantic. This pattern will persist through weeks end 
with diurnally induced instability working to overcome capping each 
day warranting at least chance level probability of precipitation for the afternoon hours. 
Global models remain in consensus on another rather robust frontal passage 
over the weekend with some discontinuity regarding timing and 
intensity. The GFS solutions are a few hours faster than that of 
the ecwmf...nevertheless both indicate frontal passage late Saturday 
evening into Sunday. As the front approaches...above mentioned 
subsidence will weaken as upper heights and surface pressures fall. 
Therefore fairly healthy probability of precipitation are forecast over the weekend with middle 
level chance probability of precipitation featured across the lower terrain while near 
likely level probability of precipitation are mentioned across the northern 
mountains/foothills. High pressure looks to build in behind the 
front for the start of the new work week leading to decreasing 
precipitation chances as drier air advects in. Temperatures through 
the majority of the extended range will be above normal with slight 
cooling forecast behind the late weekend frontal passage for the new week. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...broken cirrus will remain over the area through the morning with 
scattered high based cumulus developing for the afternoon. The cumulus will become 
broken for late afternoon into early evening when it scatters out. Do 
not expect any visibility restrictions through the period. Light SW wind this 
morning becomes west-southwest for the afternoon. Light southerly wind expected 
during the evening and overnight. Best chance of convection will be 
across the mountains 


Elsewhere...outside of the mountains will see similar conditions as kclt. 
Kavl will see vlifr through 13z...LIFR becoming low VFR by 14z. There 
will also be some rain showers around this morning. Northwesterly wind picks up this 
morning becoming southerly this afternoon...then calm overnight. Should be 
another night with at least IFR and likely vlifr before daybreak. 
Kavl has the best chance of seeing any afternoon/evening convection. 
However...chance still too low to include in the taf at this time. 


Outlook...generally VFR conditions are expected through most of the 
week...but restrictions are possible early each morning due to low 
clouds and fog...primarily in the mountain valleys. Diurnally driven 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain are expected each afternoon with the most coverage over 
the mountains.
