NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
425 PM EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
weak surface high pressure will linger over the region for the next 
several days. Moisture of varying degrees from the remnants of 
tropical cyclone Erika will continue to spread north across the 
southeast through the end of the work week...with increasing chances 
for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 425 PM...updated pop to account for the increasing coverage 
across the western County warning forecast area and brief lull over the eastern areas. Little 
instability seen across the area...but there is some thunder along 
the central Savannah River valley. Therefore...have limited thunder 
to isolated for the rest of the afternoon into the evening. Temperatures 
are running significantly cooler across the western portions due to 
clouds and precipitation...and slightly cooler across the east. Have 
updated temperature trends to account for this as well. 


As of 240 PM EDT Sunday...closed upper low continues to slide 
northeast across the deep south this afternoon yielding a broad 
region of Gulf/Atlantic moisture advection over northeast Georgia and 
the Carolinas. Middle Atlantic high pressure that has been so dominate 
the last few days will struggle to survive...however according to 
guidance...should do just that. Moist upglide atop said surface 
ridge will continue through the afternoon/evening with deep layer 
synoptic scale q vector convergence spreading overhead. Thus...the 
forecast features cloudy skies with categorical probability of precipitation south...tapering 
to chance probability of precipitation furthest north this afternoon. Probability of precipitation will gradually 
rotate as said synoptic scale lift tied to the upper vortex slides 
through the NC Piedmont region tonight therefore likely probability of precipitation are 
favored over both the NC/SC piedmonts this evening before lowering 
overnight. Patchy fog and low stratus will prevail overnight before 
burning off after daybreak on Monday. The remnants of tropical 
cyclone Erika will provide some influence on the weather closer to 
home on Monday...but mainly in the form of some middle/high cloudiness. 
Nevertheless...models do favor enough instability on Monday to 
warrant at least chance probability of precipitation across the entire region...with the 
mountains being the most likely place for convection. That said...poor 
lapse rates aloft will limit the depth of said convection therefore 
not expecting anything more than a few rumbles of thunder at best. 
Temperatures on Monday will be near climatology levels. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Sunday...upper weakness over the Southern Plains 
will continue to weaken as ridging continues to build over most of 
the country. A weakness will cross the Ohio Valley through the short 
term but any influence from it should stay just to our north until 
the end of the period when the associated fort maximum dives south 
toward the Carolinas...rotating around the upper ridge. Meanwhile 
the remnants of Erika are now prognosticated to stay to our south and 
gradually dissipate. Should see a gradual increase in precipitable water values but 
remaining below 2 inches...and for the most part below 1.75 inches. 
Have continued trend of mainly diurnal probability of precipitation through the short term 
and showing a slight warming trend as well...closer to seasonal 
highs...to account for less available moisture in this forecast 
cycle than previously shown. Better chance for convection Wednesday 
afternoon than Tuesday just due to the approaching upper vorticity 
maximum...but still only chances at best /and best chances limited to 
the mountains/. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 245 PM EDT Sunday...upper ridging will begin to weaken into 
the extended as a shortwave aloft dives down the northwest flow on 
the eastern edge of the upper ridge...bringing a slight increase in 
diurnal convection chances as we move into the extended. Still some 
uncertainty as to what the remnants of Erika will do but both the 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) have the moisture spreading across the deep south 
toward the end of the week...with increasing precipitable water values into the 
weekend /hovering just under 2 inches at least on the GFS/. 12z 
European model (ecmwf) is more robust with the moisture than the GFS but both bring 
decent quantitative precipitation forecast values...especially on Saturday as the wavetrain slides 
east and very very weak southwest flow develops as the ridge axis is 
more over the western Atlantic than the appalachian spine. 
However...continued to keep probability of precipitation at chance at best for now just 
because we are looking several days out and quite a bit could still 
change between now and then. Temperatures fairly close to seasonal 
normals. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Sunday through Friday/... 
at kclt...a mixture of VFR/MVFR and possibly IFR through this taf 
cycle as Gulf/Atlantic moisture continues to be advected northward 
by way of northward migrating middle/upper low. Initialized taf VFR 
with vcsh mention as light returns continue to spread northward 
on radar with a 4hr tempo starting at 20z for light rain showers. 
Rain showers will prevail from 00z-03z when NAM/hrrr agree on timing of 
precipitation over the NC Piedmont with moderate showers possibly 
yielding MVFR visb. Ceilings through this entire period will start 
out at middle levels...gradually lowering low VFR by around midnight. 
From that point guidance favors deteriorating conditions amongst 
the moist planetary boundary layer with MVFR ceilings favored by 03z with possible IFR 
around/after midnight. Guidance trends have been away from 
IFR...however not confident enough to completely remove any 
mention thus kept sct008 in taf. Otherwise...conditions will 
improve to low VFR after daybreak. Winds through the taf cycle 
will initialize somewhat variable...although taf features southeast winds. 
These light southeast winds will prevail shortly after issuance...lasting 
through the period perhaps calming overnight. 


Elsewhere...similar to that of kclt above with sites outside of 
the mountains experiencing the greatest chances for precipitation this 
afternoon evening due to the track of the migrating middle/upper 
low and any synoptic scale forcing tied to it. Thus...all SC 
sites feature prevailing rain showers this afternoon with khky having a 
tempo included for such. Taf remains dry regarding any prevailing 
precipitation at kavl therefore opted for vcsh only through late evening. 
Otherwise...expecting significant restrictions in the mountains this 
evening as the planetary boundary layer continues to moisten and winds calm. Thus kavl 
taf features MVFR/IFR ceilings with even an LIFR visb around daybreak. 
Guidance also favored IFR/LIFR at the SC sites...mainly in the 
form of ceilings therefore those were also included. Looks as if khky 
will see the least impact overnight however still could experience 
MVFR ceilings/visb by morning. Otherwise...all tafs are dry by middle 
early/morning with all conditions improving slowly after daybreak 
on Monday. Winds will remain light and somewhat variable this 
afternoon...calm overnight...and increasing out of the southeast 
by late morning Monday. 


Outlook...the southeast region is forecast to remain under a plume 
of Gulf and Atlantic moisture through the middle of next week. In 
addition...moisture associated with the remnants of Erika could 
reach the southern Appalachians during the middle week. Restrictions 
are possible during periods of rain and with the Mountain Valley fog 
around dawn.
