NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1029 PM EDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
Canadian high pressure will move in behind a cold front tonight and 
will dominate the surface pattern through midweek...leading to well 
below normal temperatures more typical of late Summer or early 
autumn. The surface high will weaken and moisture will return for 
the weekend...but temperatures will remain below normal. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
evening update...upstream moisture is beginning to wane and a little 
less -shra coverage is noted across the western NC mountains expect this 
downward trend to continue over the next few hours and probability of precipitation will be 
none after 06z. An area of Lee wave cloudiness is persisting across 
the eastern upstate and lower NC Piedmont which will slowly dissipate 
within the next several hours. This isn/T making much of an impact 
on current hour/ly temperatures as mixing was accounted for...but min temperatures 
could be affected a bit and this was adjacent in the grids. Other than 
that...high tdd/S and some mixing will limit any sigfnt br/fog 
threat. Sheltered mountain valleys could see some fog before 
daybreak...however kavl and the French Broad valley may remain too 
dry and mixed overnight. 


730 PM EDT update...comp radar showing very weak and short lived 
-shra moving across eastern Tennessee and reaching the western NC mountains thus...isolate 
pop coverage is working out very well there. Expect this activity to 
continue through the next update...possibly until 06z based on 
upstream moisture and the strong upslope flow. Dew point/S continue to drop 
the most across the southern zones where 3-4 f drop offs occurred in the 
past 3 hours. Thus...the dew point grids will be tweaked the most along with 
minor adjs to sky and hour/ly temperatures. 


430 PM EDT update...very nice dry airmass continues working in from 
the north with fairly deep vertical mixing producing moderate gusts 
mountains and low end gusts non/mtns. No sigfnt change needed to the forecast 
with only minor tweaks made to the T/dew point grids. 


As of 2 PM Monday...an anomalously strong upper trough will continue 
to establish itself over the eastern U.S. Through Tuesday an upper low 
spins over the northern Great Lakes. The surface cold front has 
cleared the area early this afternoon and will reach the coast by 
evening. Behind the front...gusty northwest winds are bringing much dryer 
and cooler air into the region. The airmass that is overspreading 
the region is similar to what you would expect in middle to late 
September. Outside of the mountains...sky conditions will be mostly 
clear through Tuesday with winds diminishing early tonight. In the 
mountains...a few northwest flow showers are expected as deeper moisture 
noted in satellite pics over the Ohio Valley pivots southeast and reaches 
the NC border counties tonight. Will carry low end probability of precipitation in the NC 
border counties to account for that. The northwest flow showers should end 
early Tuesday as dryer air arrives. Minimum temperatures tonight are 
forecast to be in the low to middle 50s over the mountains with even 
some 40s possible at elevations above 5000 feet. Outside the 
mountains...low to middle 60s are expected. On Tuesday...maximum temperatures will 
be 8-10 degrees below climatology. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
as of 145 PM...the main story for middle-to-late week will be the 
abnormally deep upper trough over the east. The upper trough bottoms out 
with 500 mb height values more than 3 Standard deviations below 
normal on Wednesday morning centered over NC. The Continental 
surface high moving in behind the trough is not especially strong... 
but thickness values will be such that temperatures will be on the order of 
ten degrees below normal. The temperatures are expected to be similar to 
what is normal for the last day of Summer...and with the dryness of 
the air mass...it will feel more like early autumn both Wednesday 
and Thursday. There should be some return of moisture at low levels 
with a light southeast or east flow...so isolated showers were included mainly 
over the balsams on Wednesday afternoon...and then across most of 
the mountains on Thursday afternoon. Forecast soundings show warmer air at 
middle levels which will cut down on buoyancy to a great degree...so 
thunderstorms are not likely. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 230 PM Monday...the latest guidance shows an upper trough 
remaining over eastern North America through the weekend...although 
the axis of the trough migrates to the west on Friday. This should 
allow for continued weak moisture return at low levels through the 
period...making the atmosphere a bit less inhospitable to deep 
convection. That should permit the development of mainly diurnal 
showers and thunderstorms each day...with the better chances over 
the mountains as is typical. The upper trough will pull out a bit on 
Monday as an Atlantic subtropical ridge strengthens and consolidates 
over Bermuda. That should allow for an even better chance for 
showers and storms on Monday afternoon. Temperatures will start to slowly 
warm for Monday Onward. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conds throughout the taf period at all 
sites. There is not enough low level moisture and bl winds will be just 
high enough to offset an early morning br/fog threat...the exception 
maybe being kavl where mfvr visibility is possbile around daybreak. Not 
enough confidence to include in taf at this time. Fairly weak north/ly to north-northwest/ly 
winds Tuesday afternoon...with kavl maintained up valley. 


Outlook...dry high pressure will prevail through midweek. The only 
possible restrictions will be early morning fog in the mountain 
valleys. Moisture will increase by late week as easterly flow 
returns leading to increasing precipitation/fog/stratus chances.
