NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
954 am EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Synopsis... 
continued southerly flow around a Bermuda high will provide moisture 
for diurnal showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening 
ahead of a weak cold front that will push through the region 
overnight. This front will have little to no effect in reducing 
precipitation chances across the region for Wednesday and through 
the rest of the work week as above mentioned Bermuda high regains 
control leading to continued afternoon convection chances. Another 
cold front will sweep through the region over the weekend providing 
an additional focus for thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. 
Building high pressure will highlight the weather pattern for the 
start of the next work week leading to cooler temperatures and more 
stable weather. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 930 am...fairly quiet around the region. Satellite imagery 
shows clear sky over most of the forecast area with the exception of the 
lakelands...and fog lifting to stratus over the mountain valleys. Will 
adjust sky cover trend accordingly. Area radars were also quiet...so 
based on the lack of clouds...will push back the onset of deep 
convection. Temperatures look OK. 


Remainder of previous discussion... 


Upper ridge across the southeastern Continental U.S. Is suppressed today and tonight as 
short waves move across the area in the developing westerly flow. At the 
surface...a weak cold front moves into the area late this afternoon or 
this evening and stalls. Moderate instability develops over the area 
with good heating and copious low level moisture. With the increased 
forcing and stronger instability...the guidance is suggesting better 
convective coverage today across the board. Although...coverage is 
still expected to be higher across the mountains where the forcing is 
better. In fact... isolated severe storms will be more likely today 
as shear...though not strong...does increase. Dcape and surface Delta 
Theta-E values will be on the increase as well. Convection may 
linger longer through the evening...and possibly into the early 
overnight hours given the stalled boundary. Highs will be well above 
normal once again with heat index values near 100 across the southeastern 
County warning forecast area. Lows tonight also continue well above normal...with another 
night of dense Mountain Valley fog likely. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Tuesday...the short term period initializes 
Wednesday morning with elongated upper ridge centered over the deep 
south and persistent Bermuda high dominating low level flow. Closer 
to home...remnant cold frontal boundary will be pushing into the 
southern tier of the forecast area as high pressure builds to the 
north. Convection will likely be limited early on Wednesday as the 
front slows with little forcing in the region. Models indicate 
building instability during the afternoon with the frontal moisture 
axis dissecting the forecast area leading to enhanced instability 
across the upstate and portions of northeast Georgia and the southwest NC 
mountains...decreasing to the north. Forecast will feature 
increasing diurnal probability of precipitation with scattered/numerous showers and 
thunderstorms across the Southwest Mountains while 
isolated/scattered convection is forecast elsewhere. As stated 
above...profiles will feature steep lapse rates leading to moderate 
instability possibly supportive of strong/severe convection with 
downburst winds and hail being primary threats. 


As high pressure slides by to the north...Bermuda high will likely 
regain control leading to predominate southerly flow. As a 
consequence...lingering semi stalled moisture axis will slowly 
migrate northward as a warm front across the forecast area on 
Thursday. Probability of precipitation on Thursday will once again increase diurnally as 
profiles destabilize leading to scattered/numerous showers and 
thunderstorms regionwide with the best chances once again residing 
along the high terrain. That said...convection will likely be most 
enhanced along and near warm frontal axis as it sweeps northward 
through the region. Profiles will resemble that of Wednesday with 
low level heating leading to steepening lapse rates and nearly 
1500j/kg SBCAPE with minimal shear. Temperatures through the short 
term period will remain at or just above normal levels despite weak 
cold frontal passage at forecast initiation. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am EDT Tuesday...long range models remain in agreement 
with the overall pattern through the extended range period which 
initializes on Friday morning with deep layer riding in control 
across the southeast. Upper trough pushing through central Ontario 
will have spread a cold front southward through the Great Lakes 
region...westward through the middle Mississippi River valley. 
Continued southerly flow into the weekend will lead to diurnal 
convective chances with solid chance probability of precipitation forecast on Friday and 
Saturday ahead of approaching front. Above mentioned cold front is 
prognosticated to enter the mountains Saturday evening with gradual slowing 
likely during the overnight. Thus the forecast will feature likely 
level probability of precipitation over the high terrain on Saturday evening with solid 
chance probability of precipitation across northeast Georgia and the NC/SC Piedmont. Frontal 
boundary will continue slowed forward propagation through the rest 
of the forecast area on Sunday leading to persistent chance level 
probability of precipitation with possible shortwave enhancement across the north. High 
pressure will spill into the region taking on a weak early 
meteorological fall wedge configuration on Monday...lasting into 
Wednesday. Expecting lowered precipitation chances coinciding with 
cooler below normal temperatures through midweek before deep layer 
southeast ridging resumes leading to moderating temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...thin high clouds and light southerly wind this morning will give 
way to developing high based cumulus and southwesterly winds for the early 
afternoon. The cumulus becomes broken by late afternoon with continued southwesterly 
winds. Shortwaves moving into western NC from the northwest late day could 
allow thunderstorms and rain to make a run toward the Piedmont again...and prob30 for 
thunderstorms and rain after 21z and into the evening appears warranted. Broken high 
based cumulus lingers into the overnight with light southerly winds. For now... 
do not expect any visibility restrictions overnight...but that could 
change if rain does fall at the airfield and skies clear. 


Elsewhere...ceilings and visibility restrictions have been tempo and variable 
at kavl this morning. Still a chance for a restriction until shortly 
after daybreak. Otherwise...thin high clouds and light southwesterly wind 
this morning will give way to developing high based cumulus and stronger 
southwesterly winds for the early afternoon. Kavl will see continued northwesterly 
winds. Prob30 for thunderstorms and rain appears warranted at all locations for late 
afternoon into the evening. Thunderstorms in the vicinity included for early afternoon at 
kavl. Should be another round of visibility and ceiling restrictions at kavl 
overnight. However...have limited to MVFR visibility and IFR ceilings for 
now...but the could be worse. Elsewhere...do not expect any visibility 
restrictions overnight...but that could change if rain does fall at 
the airfields and skies clear. 


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