NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
310 am EDT Tuesday may 5 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain across the region through the middle of 
the week. A weak cold front is expected to drift down from the north 
on Thursday. The remainder of the week and weekend is still fairly 
uncertain as low pressure remains just offshore. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 300 am EDT Tuesday...upper ridge axis over the lower 
Mississippi River valley is expected to advect east through the 
period. Surface high pressure centered about 200 miles off the NC 
coast will continue its slow push further out to sea allowing flow 
over the southeast to back. Earlier low/middle level ceilings have scattered out 
leading to only patchy areas of cloudiness around the 8-10kft 
level. Expecting this to prevail through daybreak...allowing for at 
least some minor radiational cooling. Current dewpoint depressions 
across the region lean towards little fog potential...even with some 
additional cooling. Only the most fog prone areas of the little Tennessee 
River valley are likely to see any visibility restrictions through 
middle morning. 


Otherwise Tuesday looks to be fairly similar to that of Monday with 
high pressure prevailing. That said...low level warm air advection regime 
continues to yield increasing dewpoints into the region which 
combined with diurnal heating will produce modest SBCAPE per latest 
NAM soundings. Fortunately the approach of the above mentioned 500 mb 
ridge axis will likely provide enough subsidence to once again keep 
widespread convection at Bay. Thus...the forecast features 
isolated/scattered rain showers and or thunderstorms and rain over the NC/Georgia mountains...while the 
foothills and Piedmont regions remain dry. All probability of precipitation are removed by 
midnight with partly cloudy skies prevailing regionwide. 
Temperatures on Tuesday will top out nearly 4-5 degrees above normal 
for most areas. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Friday night/... 
as of 230 PM Tuesday...we remain keenly interested in the non- 
tropical low pressure center shown by the models off the southeast 
coast on Wednesday and Thursday. Run-to-run consistency continues to 
be an issue with the model guidance...which throws a blanket of 
uncertainty over the forecast. The latest runs have trended toward 
keeping the low farther offshore...so much that the western 
Carolinas and NE Georgia barely feel any affect from the low at 
all...and not until maybe early Friday morning. Instead...the short 
range will continue to be controlled by upper ridging and a weak 
surface high...and a lack of forcing. That leaves US with only some 
differential heating over the higher terrain to act upon the minimal 
low level moisture to form scattered showers and a few storms across 
the mountains in the afternoon and early evening Wednesday and 
Thursday. We will probably see the better chance on Thursday when 
some moisture to the north may get entrained into the developing 
circulation off the SC coast. Once again...confidence in the 
development of showers does not seem even as high as the 30 percent 
shown in the forecast. Temperatures will be a bit above normal...and the forecast 
was nudged upward a bit. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Monday/... 
as of 315 am Tuesday...as with the short range...the medium range 
will be somewhat plagued by the uncertainty with the strength/ 
position/track of a low pressure center...which may acquire sub- 
tropical characteristics by the end of the week. The newest European model (ecmwf) 
keeps this low far enough offshore such that the western Carolinas 
are spared from any affects...but the GFS still drifts the low westward 
into eastern Georgia over the weekend which could bring an easterly flow that 
would drive convection in from the Atlantic. For this package...will 
back off with the precipitation chances on Friday given the dry European model (ecmwf) and 
the GFS trend of keeping the low offshore through Friday night/ 
Saturday morning. That would leave US with yet another weakly forced 
diurnal mountain shower/T-storm chance on Friday afternoon/eve. No 
changes were made beyond early Saturday morning. Temperatures will remain 
seasonally warm each day. Eventually...a surface front may drift in 
from the west early next week...bringing in a better precipitation chance. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will prevail through the taf 
period. Initialized all tafs with low/middle level clouds where 
appropriate based upon current observation/infrared Sat. Models forecast decreasing 
cloudiness through the evening thus allowed for sky cover to scattered by 
morning. Heating on Tuesday will allow for lapse rates to steepen 
yet again with low VFR cumulus prognosticated at all sites. Ceiling probabilities 
will increase from east to west where deeper moisture in the low 
levels resides. Expecting deep layer ridging to keep convection at 
Bay outside of the high terrain...with only low chances of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
over the mountains therefore left out of kavl taf at this time. Winds 
through the period will initialize light and southerly...eventually 
backing to the southeast during the day on Tuesday as the parent 
surface high shift east. 


Outlook...isolated to scattered diurnal mountain convection is 
expected through Friday...as moist southerly flow persists. Low 
clouds and or fog restricitons will be possible each morning where 
prior afternoon precipitation occurred.
