NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
241 PM EDT Friday may 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
Bermuda high pressure will persist across the region through the 
weekend and into early next week...with moist southerly flow fueling 
scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.Saturday 
will be the driest day of the weekend...before a cold front 
approaches the area by Tuesday and stalls out through the middle of 
next week...keeping rain chances above average. A slow drying 
out/warming trend is expected by the end of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
scattered showers continue to cover much of the northwest half of the 
County Warning Area early this afternoon...as a boundary of Atlantic origin 
continues to push northwest across the area. Meanwhile...dewpoints 
have crashed behind this boundary across the SC midlands and ctrl 
NC. Drier low level air should gradually filter into our Piedmont 
zones through the afternoon...resulting in minimal buoyancy. Probability of precipitation 
will therefore diminish from southeast to northwest with time this 
PM. Cells have thus far been moving right along. Thus...localized 
Hydro issues will likely be limited to locations that manage to 
receive some training cells...especially over and near the high terrain. 
Modest buoyancy should keep the severe storm threat rather low. 
Convection should diminish quickly this evening. With southeast low level 
flow persisting...another surge of Atlantic moisture is expected 
to push into the area toward daybreak...and this could result in 
some isolated showers near the Escarpment...but will likely be 
manifest more as expanding low cloud cover. Min temperatures will be near 
to slightly above normal. 


Saturday...other than persistent weak upslope flow and scant low 
level moisture...not much to hang one/S hat on in terms of the 
convective potential. Instability parameters from forecast soundings 
are rather pitiful for late may...owing to weak lapse rates/fairly 
warm temperatures aloft resulting from rising heights. Nevertheless... 
there will be some degree of buoyancy...and combination of upslope 
flow/diff heating should allow for a few cells...mainly in the form 
of showers to form near the high terrain during the afternoon...and 
near-climatology probability of precipitation will be advertised. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
at 2 PM EDT Friday...on Saturday evening an upper ridge will be near 
Bermuda...while and upper trough will be moving from the plains to 
the MS River Valley. The trough crosses the MS River Valley on 
Sunday night...reaching the Ohio and Tennessee River valleys on Monday. 
Shortwave energy moving through this trough remains to our west until 
Monday...when a shortwave crosses the southern Appalachians late in 
the day. 


At the surface...a cold front will slow while crossing the Ohio and 
lower MS River Valley on Saturday night. This front reaches the 
southern Appalachians by early Monday...then moves very little 
during the day. Instability is expected to increase along and ahead 
of this boundary on Sunday...and shear is expected to follow suit on 
Monday...supporting an increasing chance of convection. Low level 
flow will be veer from light SW on Sunday...to slightly greater but 
nearly parallel to the Blue Ridge on Monday...limiting the upslope 
flow component. Isentropic upglide will be largely lacking. 
Precipitation amounts will be greatest where thunderstorms move 
slowly in weak southerly steering flow on Sunday...mainly against 
the Blue Ridge...and where they train in better SW flow on Sunday. 
Temperatures will run slightly above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 230 PM Friday...model consistency at the beginning of the 
medium range is relatively good. The period starts Monday night with 
an upper trough and associated surface front just to the west of the 
southern Appalachians...with a rather broad upper low over the 
MS/la Gulf Coast. The frontal boundary meanders slightly to the 
east...and remains stalled over our area through Tuesday night. A 
moist airmass will remain in place over the County Warning Area ahead of the 
front...resulting in likely probability of precipitation focused around the frontal 
boundary with slightly diurnal trend. A surface high will build 
into the northeast on Wednesday...creating a wedge/cad setup by 
Thursday that should remain at least through Friday. 


Model divergence begins on Thursday...with the GFS now suggesting a 
wetter end of the period than the European model (ecmwf). The GFS maintains an upper 
level low slowly lifting northward from the Gulf Coast which 
would prevent clearing of the frontal boundary from our area...while 
the European model (ecmwf) dives the low into the Gulf and allows the front and 
its associated moisture to clear by Friday. Went with probability of precipitation just 
above climatology with a diurnal peak...weighting the GFS more heavily due 
to its better run-to-run consistency. Instability remains meager 
through the extended period...so any concerns should be mainly 
limited to locally heavy rainfall associated with weak steering 
flow/training. 


Maximum temperatures will be near or just below climatology at the beginning of the 
medium range...and the moist airmass will keep lows a category or 
two above climatology...limiting the diurnal temperature range. Highs will 
rebound slightly to normal or just above by the end of the period. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Friday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt/upstate SC terminals...winds should eventually settle at southeast 
at around 5 kts this afternoon in the wake of northwest-moving boundary. 
Lower dewpoints filtering into the area behind this boundary are 
expected to result in diminishing chances for convection this 
afternoon. Thus...all vcsh/thunderstorms in the vicinity were removed from the forecast. 
However...a stray shower cannot be ruled out...especially over the first 
couple of hours of the forecast period. Otherwise...another boundary 
of Atlantic origin is expected to push into the area overnight... 
bringing another wave of low level moisture. Weak upglide/upslope 
flow is expected to result in expanding low clouds toward 
daybreak...especially near the Blue Ridge/upstate SC terminals. The 
forecast has been maintained at lmvfr for now...but cannot rule out 
IFR conditions. 


At kavl/khky...showers/possbl thunderstorms will persist in the vcny 
of these two terminals for the next couple of hours...with diminishing 
chances expected thereafter. Tempos are carried through 19/20z for 
rain showers and MVFR conditions. Weak upglide/upslope is expected to result 
in expanding low clouds toward daybreak. The forecast has 
been maintained at lmvfr for now...but cannot rule out IFR 
conditions. 


Outlook...moist SW flow will continue to affect the terminal 
forecast area through this weekend...as a cold front lays over to 
the north of the area. Expect pockets of morning fog and/or stratus 
most days...with continued chances of afternoon/evening rain showers/thunderstorms and rain each 
day.
