NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1021 PM EDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will remain in place across the area through 
Monday. Low level moisture will gradually return through the work 
week as another cold front approaches from the northwest then moves 
into the area and stalls. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
1015 PM update...sea breeze boundary has now marched up to about 
I-85. Dewpoints have jumped 10 degrees in spots with the arrival of 
the marine airmass. Given this observation...it now appears that as 
far as low cloud and fog development in the Piedmont late 
tonight...the earlier suggestions of the NAM and its family members 
are now much more plausible. I expanded the fog mention across most 
of this area...but still did not bite on the precipitation the NAM is 
suggesting will develop over the eastern Escarpment. I have also bumped 
up min temperatures in the Piedmont a couple of degrees. 


As of 230 PM EDT Sunday...synoptic pattern remains relatively 
unchanged with longwave trough dominating the eastern Seaboard. 
Shortwave should push through the area tonight into early 
tomorrow...but some discrepancies on how strong the shortwave is. 
NAM is the strongest with more significant vortlobe pushing into 
North Carolina. This results in more convective activity than other 
guidance...and quite a bit more surface moisture and overnight fog 
potential. NAM is a bit of an outlier with this...so leaned more 
toward the GFS/ECMWF. 


Other item of note is surface wave/low near the Florida Big Bend 
this afternoon. This low will ride northeast along the stalled 
boundary overnight and generally along the South Carolina coast by 
Monday afternoon. Guidance in fairly decent agreement though the GFS 
is definitely on the stronger side with this low. For now...looks 
like any sensible weather impacts will remain out of our forecast 
area and closer to the coast...but will continue to monitor. For now 
the low looks unlikely to develop tropical characteristics...refer 
to NHC tropical weather outlook. 


Temperatures will remain near to just above normal values through the near 
term but with a trend upwards as surface winds swing around to the 
south allowing return moist flow to begin setting up toward the end 
of the period. However...as the surface low tracks to the 
southeast...will likely see a brief period of northwest surface flow 
before the winds respond again to the larger synoptic pattern as we 
transition into the short term. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 205 PM Sunday...the middle part of the week looks like a 
gradual return to more typical summertime humidity...and more 
typical diurnal thunderstorm chances. The models still show the 
eastern upper trough gradually losing amplitude through Wednesday as a 
short wave comes out over the plains and Midwest. The approach of 
this feature allows some weak moisture transport back into the area 
that should improve our potential for instability with some 
afternoon heating...which should be substantial...at least on 
Tuesday which looks like the hottest day. What remains to be seen is 
how the details work out. The models have a short wave moving past 
to the north late Monday that leaves a surface boundary stretched 
out to the north on Tuesday...which should provide some focus for 
showers and storms. The GFS seems underdone with its lack of precipitation. 
The NAM might be wrong on some of the details but think it is right 
with developing some afternoon storms south of the boundary. For 
that reason...have kept at least a slight chance across the NC part of 
the forecast area into the early evening. Wednesday should be more favorable 
with slightly better moisture as the wave approaches from the 
west... but once again the GFS is unimpressed. Think the pattern 
favors potential a bit above climatology...so will shade on the high 
side of guidance with a chance across just about the whole forecast area 
in the afternoon. A bit more convection should mean a bit lower high 
temperatures. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 210 PM Sunday...the medium range forecast picks up at 00z on 
Thursday with broad upper troffing centered over New England 
and persistent upper ridging over the western Continental U.S.. over the next 
couple of days...the upper trough lifts to the NE and another northern 
stream upper trough helps to flatten the ridge over the west. Simultaneously 
a series of embedded upper shortwaves approach the forecast area from the 
northwest on both Thursday and Friday. Towards the end of the period next 
sun...the upper ridge tries to build eastward and heights could begin 
to rise again over the southeast. At the surface...the subtropical 
Bermuda high will maintain its influence over the southeast region through 
most of the period with generally light southerly flow. The long range 
models remain in poor agreement with respect to the surface pattern evolution for 
most of the medium range. They attempt to spin up multiple lows 
over the southeast region and then move them offshore on Friday and Sat yet 
the placement and timing still differ quite a bit...although the European model (ecmwf) 
and Canadian models have come into better agreement with each other. 
As such...I leaned more towards an European model (ecmwf)/CMC type solution. I kept 
probability of precipitation at a high end solid chance for most of Thursday and Friday and taper them 
back for the weekend. The later into the weekend we move...the drier it is 
likely to be. Temperatures start out near normal and then cool a few degrees 
through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...VFR most likely will prevail through 00z Tuesday. As upper trough 
digs toward the South Atlantic coast tonight...a weak surface low will 
spin up over southern Georgia. NAM and some of the other WRF based guidance 
advect stalled frontal bdy northward from SC...and bring MVFR or IFR 
stratus over the field in the morning. It currently appears these 
models are overdoing this. However such a deck will likely be not 
too far away. To hint at the potential a scattered MVFR level deck was 
mentioned near daybreak. Winds are expected to veer slightly 
overnight...going S of east as low moves across to the north. Then they 
will be more solidly from the S for Monday. Low VFR cumulus should break 
out by afternoon. 


Elsewhere...some restricted visibilities are expected briefly near daybreak 
at kavl...with moisture improving somewhat compared to recent 
mornings. Enough moisture is also expected to advect into the lower 
Piedmont for some patchy fog at kand. Otherwise VFR through the period 
with fair weather cumulus developing toward midday around the area. 
Except for northwesterly winds at kavl through the period...very light southeasterly 
winds will prevail tonight with some variability. Then winds veer to 
SW as low pressure moves eastward along the US-Canada border. 


Outlook...gradually increasing precipitation/restriction chances 
through middle week as moist southerly flow returns ahead of the next 
cold front.
