NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
449 PM EDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cool and moist wind flow off the Atlantic this weekend will keep 
considerable cloudiness and cooler temperatures for our region. 
Expect gradual warming early to middle of the upcoming week under an 
upper ridge. A cold front and upper trough will arrive at the end of 
the week. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
as of 430 PM...made some updates to sky/pops/wx based on current 
trends. Seeing some non-severe downbursts with these storms... 
especially with the aid of the tclt tdwr. Isolated severe still 
definitely possible...have seen some reports of severe winds and 
hail to our south where cape/dcape values are a little higher. 
Trends into the evening still look good but will update as necessary 
through the evening. 


As of 230 PM...satellite imagery shows enhanced cumulus over the 
ridgetops and radar imagery shows that deep convection has initiated 
across parts of NC and along the Blue Ridge in Virginia...and down across 
the area near the fall line. Coverage should gradually expand from 
there. Still think we could see a few storms become strong enough to 
produce damaging wind gusts now that we have realized the expected 
environment with dcape 1000+ j/kg. Temperatures look good. 


The next 24 hours should see the development of a pseudo-wedge-like 
scenario across the western Carolinas. The upper air pattern remains 
convoluted with an overall high amplitude ridge across eastern North 
America...but with an upper low centered off the southeast coast and 
weak cyclonic flow at middle levels across the forecast area. Within this 
flow...a large surface high will be supported to our NE...loosely 
anchored over New England and the maritime provinces. What this does 
is provide a low level NE flow...which is not really dammed across 
the area to our north. However...the easterly flow and the development 
of convective precipitation across the Piedmont and foothills of Virginia and northern 
NC may form a cool pool that oozes south and southwestward 
overnight...perhaps along convective outflows. This in effect will 
form a sort of in-situ wedge into the forecast area...which should 
gradually push S and SW into Saturday morning. The problem is the 
east/NE flow is fairly deep and there will not be any isentropic lift 
or low level warm advection over the top of a stable boundary layer to 
maintain it. As a result...on Saturday we are left with basically a 
cool and cloudy NE flow near the surface. The models push precipitation 
production down into NE Georgia and across the mountains by afternoon. 
Will hedge and keep at least a slight chance over the western NC Piedmont. 
This will make the high temperature forecast tricky. Not convinced temperatures will 
remain below guidance...so have nudged them up a bit over the 
Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
as of 200 PM Friday...little impactful change is expected in the 
overall surface/upper pattern over the period. High pressure over the 
NE Continental U.S. Will weaken slowly and move offshore under the influence 
of falling heights over the Midwest. Northeasterly to easterly 
flow will continue into the Carolinas on the southern periphery of 
the high. The main effect will be to maintain low to middle level 
moisture transport from the Atlantic...but only slight upslope 
forcing due to the weak winds. Probability of precipitation are warranted mainly on account 
of instability...but the usual model differences between the GFS 
and NAM are seen. The NAM depicts the easterly winds maintaining 
a mixed layer atop the boundary layer...from which parcels will 
remain buoyant overnight. GFS shows this being less effective and 
also shows poorer midlevel lapse rates. Nevertheless slight chance 
nocturnal probability of precipitation with slight favoritism toward the Blue Ridge are 
appropriate. Afternoon cape is expected to be greater Sunday than 
Monday and so the highest overall probability of precipitation are included then. 


Maximum temperatures will be a degree or two below climatology Sunday but rebound 
to about climatology on Monday with airmass modification. Min temperatures will 
be slightly above climatology with nocturnal cloud cover. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
at 150 PM EDT Friday...starting Monday night the 500mb pattern has 
a shallow ridge over the southeast states with a trough axis over the 
western Dakotas and progressing east impinging on the Southeast Ridge. The 
ridge will flatten out through middle week then the trough digs over 
the southeast with axis becoming established just west of the Appalachians 
by late Friday. Ridge will build at weeks end over the far west. 


At the surface...high pressure will be over the Carolinas and middle 
Atlantic Tuesday then drifts east as cold front crosses the miss 
valley. This cold front reaches the Ohio Valley by Thursday and will 
be crossing our area by Friday. Scattered convection will increase 
as the front gets closer late in the week. 


Overall...the instability will be modest at best. Cape 
values around 1000 on the GFS for Piedmont Georgia and SC late 
Tuesday...weaker values Wednesday and 700 to 1000 Thursday and Friday. 
Wind speeds in the low to middle levels not excessive as h8gher winds 
at the end of the week in the trough. Even then the 700mb wind will 
be around 20 kts which is fairly light. 


Temperatures a little above normal in middle week...dipping to a little below 
normal next weekend within the trough. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Friday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt...adjusted the tempo timing to start at 20z with 
a previous amend as several thunderstorms and rain are developing around the 
Airport. Low-end downbursts evident on tdwr so added vrb gusts 
to the tempo. Convective intensity does look like it is dropping 
somewhat so will take the tempo through 23z and make additional 
adjustments thereafter based on trends. After a round of storms 
moves through the area...will keep only convective debris across 
the region overnight...with a light NE wind. The model guidance 
suggests bringing a low cloud deck down from the NE in the early 
morning hours. A similar evolution occurs in most situations like 
this...with plenty of moisture...and easterly component to the low 
level flow...with high pressure to the NE. The lamp guidance was 
generally accepted... but ceilings were kept to MVFR across the western 
Piedmont of NC. Later tafs will have to address the possibility 
of IFR ceilings around daybreak...but for now it is more likely 
to stay MVFR. On Saturday...low cloud base will gradually rise to 
VFR as boundary layer deepens. Additional showers or storms should 
develop with heating around midday. 


Elsewhere...scattered storms will form first across the higher 
terrain and then slowly develop down across the rest of the forecast 
area through early evening. Confidence only high enough at kavl/khky to 
include a tempo for now. The upstate SC taf sites were limited to 
thunderstorms in the vicinity/prob30 based on lack of coverage in convection allowing models. 
There could be a round of showers in the early morning Saturday as 
a back door surface boundary moves down from the NE...but confidence 
not high enough to mention. Expect valley fog to form at kavl in the 
pre- dawn hours...most likely restricting visibility to MVFR...unless 
precipitation falls there today. Think low cloud ceiling will reach khky 
Saturday morning...but get hung up moving SW as sun starts to 
warm atmosphere after 12z. Wind should remain north to NE through the 
period. More showers can be expected with heating on Saturday. 


Outlook...a moist easterly flow will continue through Sunday...bringing 
a good chance of IFR/MVFR restrictions Saturday night and Sunday 
morning. Light precipitation will remain possible. The threat for 
restrictions will continue through Sunday night. Dry air working in 
from the east on Monday will begin to diminish the threat for early 
next week.
