NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1050 PM EDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
a Bermuda high pattern will remain across the region into the 
weekend before a cold front pushes in from the north late Sunday. 
This front will then weaken and become stationary over the area 
through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
1015 PM update...the convection which had set up over the mountains along 
some sort of mesoscale boundary has rapidly diminished over the past 
30 mins as instability was exhausted. Isolated activity along outflow 
boundary over the csra has struggled to move northward into our srnmost 
zones. While these areas should continue to see coverage diminish 
over the next couple hours...weakening mesoscale convective system with leading edge now over 
the northern Alabama/Georgia line is timed to arrive in the SW NC/NE Georgia mountains around 
1230-100 am. At least some light-moderate stratiform precipitation perhaps 
with a couple rumbles of thunder could make it into those 
areas...but it will be increasingly less potent as it works northeastward 
particularly into the areas of the NC mountains which got soaked this 
evening. Revised probability of precipitation to handle the arrival of the remnant activity 
into the western half of the County warning forecast area late tonight. 


Previous discussion...a short wave trough will approach the area 
from the tenn valley this evening. There is a considerable amount of 
convection ahead of this feature across the miss valley this 
afternoon. Much of this activity will push across the tenn valley 
into the evening hours...but mesoscale and short term guidance are 
in general agreement that this activity will tend to lose steam as 
it approaches our area tonight in the weakly sheared/stabilizing 
environment. Thus...only token slight/low chance probability of precipitation will be 
retained through the overnight. 


By Thursday afternoon...precipitable waters  will return to above climatology levels...as 
deeper moisture pushes into the southern Appalachians and 
surrounding areas in association with dampening short wave trough. 
On the other hand...instability may end up being limited by 
considerable middle-level cloud cover tomorrow afternoon. 
Additionally...the deep layer flow will be extremely weak. In 
fact...2-8km mean winds are less than 5 kts in the latest NAM 
forecast soundings. Therefore...any cells that do develop tomorrow 
afternoon will not cover much area. We will continue to advertise 
higher-than-climo probability of precipitation in light of the high precipitable waters ...but convection 
is not expected to be especially robust in the weak lapse rate/ 
modestly unstable regime. Localized heavy rainfall will be of some 
concern in light of the high moisture content and weak steering 
flow. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
at 200 PM EDT Wednesday...on Friday morning an upper ridge will be 
along the eastern Seaboard...while a trough will be over The 
Rockies. The eastern ridge begins to break down on Saturday. 
Meanwhile...the deamplifying upper trough progresses to the Southern 
Plains...reaching the lower MS River Valley on Saturday night. 


At the surface...Atlantic ridging will over the Carolinas and Georgia 
will be reinforced by high pressure centered over eastern Canada. 
Low level moisture will remain banked up against the southern 
Appalachians...with only weak isentropic upglide and upslope flow 
into the Blue Ridge. The surface high moves offshore on Saturday... 
but the ridge maintains a foothold on Georgia and the Carolinas. Limited 
instability will be present both days...chiefly over the mountains 
on the western periphery of the upper ridge...but shear is expected 
to be relatively tame. Temperatures will exhibit a reduced diurnal 
range due to clouds and moisture. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...models remain in good agreement with a 
broad upper trough crossing the northeastern Continental U.S. And eroding the 
upper ridge over the eastern Seaboard on Sunday. A broad surface 
high will build into the Midwest...slowly pushing a cold front 
towards the southeast late Sunday and into Monday. The boundary will 
then stall out over the Appalachians and weaken slightly early in 
the work week. 


As the frontal boundary approaches Sunday and Monday...probability of precipitation increase 
once again...with the GFS driving the boundary in slightly faster 
than the European model (ecmwf). While not particularly impressive at this 
time...weak shear and instability look to be present Monday through 
the end of the extended period...suggesting storms with some 
organization are possible with a diurnal peak. Confidence is lower 
Tuesday-Wednesday...but models suggest the boundary will be slow to 
clear the area...so probability of precipitation will remain above climatology through the end of 
the period. Moist south/southwesterly flow will will keep highs and 
lows well above climatology on Sunday...with cloud cover dropping highs to 
near normal and lows remaining above average for the work week. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...low VFR cumulus should diminish in coverage this evening. A 
nearby outflow boundary S and east of the field could drive a few 
showers...but impact would be low...so have just handled this with 
vcsh. The loss of the cumulus suggests there will not be enough moisture 
to become trapped under subsidence inversion and create a low ceiling 
overnight. Most guidance features cirrus ceilings...mainly convective 
debris from convection over al/TN/GA...spreading overhead tonight. 
This and dry surface dewpoints should preclude fog. Convective chances 
are a bit better tomorrow with more available moisture. Low VFR cumulus 
will develop middle-morning with a prob30 during the afternoon for thunderstorms and rain. 
Winds will be light but favor S to SW through the period. 


Elsewhere...kavl is the only site which stands a mentionable chance 
of precipitation this evening...handled with vcsh...but SW flow could kick 
off some showers or even an isolated thunderstorms and rain over SW NC or adjacent NC/SC 
areas through midnight or so. Cirrus debris fill in overhead tonight 
and flow is unfavorable for stratus to creep up from the coast...but 
we may need to monitor ceilings in the rain soaked areas upstream. Only 
MVFR fog is expected tonight and only in areas which remained more 
moist today. Low VFR cumulus field will develop by middle-late morning Thursday and 
thunderstorms and rain chances are in prob30 range at all sites for most of the afternoon. 


Outlook...moist SW flow will continue to affect the terminal 
forecast area through the upcoming weekend...as a cold front lays 
over to the north of the area. Expect pockets of morning fog and/or 
stratus most days...with continued chances of afternoon/evening rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
each day.
