NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
351 am EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
surface ridging will prevail on Wednesday ahead of increasing 
precipitation chances on Thursday as moist southerly flow returns. 
Another cold front will push through northeast Georgia and the 
western Carolinas on Friday evening ahead of drier high pressure for 
the weekend. Moisture will return for the start of the next work 
weak as southerly flow once again commences over the region 
therefore increasing precipitation chances. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 230 am...convection continues to stream in a west-southwest-east-northeast path 
across Georgia...and will continue to miss NE Georgia entirely...so no 
precipitation chance was included through daybreak. Temperatures were running 3-5 
degrees above the forecast trend...so an upward adjustment was made. The 
rest of the pre-dawn hours should be quiet...provided that a weak 
surface boundary dropping southward across the forecast area does not 
trigger new convection across the Savannah River basin...where some 
weak instability remained at 06z. 


Over the next 24 hours...a progressive upper pattern will see the 
upper trough axis move eastward out over the western Atlantic...and an 
upper ridge building eastward over the Appalachians/western Carolinas. 
Weak high pressure will build in from the middle-Atlantic region behind 
the front this morning. High temperatures should be on the order of five 
degrees cooler than yesterday with the subtle air mass change. The 
upper ridge axis will move east across the region late tonight and 
that should push the surface high offshore...setting the stage for 
moisture return after midnight. A dampening short wave riding up the 
ridge will approach from the west after 06z Thursday and will bring 
some Gulf moisture with it...while the flow around the departed 
surface high will allow some Atlantic moisture to return as well. 
Prefer the slightly less enthusiastic precipitation development of the GFS 
near the Blue Ridge west of I-26 around daybreak Thursday...as it seems 
the model guidance develops the upslope precipitation a bit too fast. Will 
cut down the precipitation chances a bit. Min temperatures should be at or above 
normal. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Wednesday...the short term forecast period initializes 
Thursday morning amidst short wave ridging aloft over the southeast 
Atlantic coast...while region of height falls approaches from the 
west. At the surface...high pressure will be in control of the 
pattern across northeast Georgia and the western Carolinas...however 
quickly retreating out to sea as a warm front approaches from the 
southwest driven by potent southern stream upper wave and associated 
surface cyclone over the Central Plains. A northern stream upper wave 
will be sliding through the northern Great Lakes with a surface 
trough/front stretched to the south along the Mississippi River 
valley. Models continue to agree on improving warm air advection regime with 
dewpoints surging across the southern Apps through the day on 
Thursday. Therefore the forecast features increasing probability of precipitation through 
morning across northeast Georgia...southwest NC...and the western upstate 
as upslope/upglide forced precipitation prevails early on ahead of 
maximum heating/instability. Probability of precipitation will then spread out further east as 
model soundings indicate modest/improving lapse rates aloft as the 
upper ridge shifts east...with steepening llv lapse rates with 
heating and moisture influx. Soundings also indicate some 
directional sheer in the profile Thursday afternoon/evening across 
these zones with approx 30km bulk shear present...however speed 
shear looks to be lacking as no primary low level jet/mlj is present. All 
said...would not be surprised at all to see a few deep/organized 
thunderstorms with hail/damaging winds being the primary threats as 
fz levels remain below 10kft. 


Beyond that...southerly upslope flow will veer southwesterly 
somewhat and weaken into the overnight hours. This combined with 
heating loss warrants lowered probability of precipitation due to lack of any forcing in the 
return. On Friday southerly flow will continue...however according 
to model guidance...llv dry air from remnant 850 mb ridge over the Gulf 
will be entrained in the mean flow thus advecting a region of lower 
dewpoints northward. This drier air at the surface on Friday would 
be a substantial limiting factor for any convection ahead of the 
frontal passage Friday night. Thus...probability of precipitation actually lower to slight chance 
levels across the NC/SC Piedmont as soundings look rather 
unimpressive. Models continued to favor at least high end chance 
probability of precipitation over the high terrain thus that was accepted in the forecast. 
Meanwhile...a line of convection just ahead of the front will likely 
be marching east through the Tennessee Valley...eventually arriving into 
the western NC and northeast Georgia mountains by the 00z timeframe. 
Expecting this line to move through the region overnight...therefore 
likely probability of precipitation are feature over most of the forecast area with thunder 
mentioned. Due to the above mentioned stable airmass over the 
southern Apps...would not be surprised to see any strong/severe 
convection along this line to weaken as it enters the forecast area. By 
periods end Saturday morning...the primary upper trough axis will 
swing through thereby motivating the front along or just east of the 
Interstate 77 corridor. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 345 am EDT Wednesday...the medium range forecast period 
initializes Saturday morning amidst a departing cold front and 
intruding high pressure beneath quasi zonal flow aloft. Mentionable 
probability of precipitation will be in the forecast initially...however will lower quickly to 
non mentionable levels by middle afternoon. Skies will clear out as 
the high builds in thus allowing for abundant sunshine amongst 
falling thicknesses. Temperatures on Saturday will be a few degrees 
under climatology...with slightly cooler temperatures prevailing on Sunday 
where frost conditions are possible over the mountains during the early 
morning hours. The surface ridge will migrate east into Monday allowing 
for the return of southerly warm air advection beneath continued zonal flow aloft. 
Modest baroclinic zone across the arklatex...east into the midsouth 
will build ahead of another potent cold front. Increasing moisture 
over the southern Apps Monday into Tuesday will yield reintroduction 
of chance probability of precipitation by Monday evening as upglide maxima region advects 
overhead along the western periphery of the departing surface 
ridge. Probability of precipitation will remain at low end chance levels on Tuesday as 
improving warm air advection regime yields dewpoints in the upper 50s to lower 60s 
thus providing ample moisture for convection. Temperatures on 
Monday will return to normal levels...with warmer temperatures forecast 
on Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR through the period...or at least until 
after 04z Thursday. Convection moving across north Georgia will miss the 
western Carolinas...but may spread some thicker cirrus overhead through 
sunrise. Wind should come around to north during the early morning hours 
after a weak surface boundary moves S of the region. If the wind 
shift does not reach kand...some MVFR visibility is possible in 
light fog...but this was not included for now. Around sunrise...the 
wind will probably come around to NE as a weak surface high moves 
over the middle-Atlantic region. The high will move along steadily and 
should allow the wind to veer around to east-southeast or southeast by late 
afternoon...perhaps around 20z at kclt. Wind will come around to southeast 
at all taf sites during the middle to late evening as the high moves 
away. 


Outlook...an approaching warm front and resultant moisture return 
will bring better chances for precipitation/restrictions across the area 
beginning on Thursday morning. Expect low clouds to develop with a 
southeast upslope flow Thursday night and Friday morning. A cold 
front will affect the area Friday into early Saturday...bringing 
another round of rain/possible thunderstorms and restrictions. VFR 
will return for the rest of the weekend.
