NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
136 am EDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will move east of the area overnight. High pressure 
will build in behind the front for Friday and the weekend. Another 
cold front is expected to reach the area from the northwest on 
Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 135 am...slow moving cold front keeping enough low level 
convergence across the eastern upstate to break the cap and produce 
isolated rain showers. These should end or move south of the area before 
daybreak as the front moves out of the area. Otherwise...have 
updated for the cloud cover and current conditions. 


As of 945 PM EDT...the passing surface cold front has moved to near the 
Interstate 85 corridor late this evening and will continue to 
progress southeast overnight. Any lingering isolated showers that trigger in 
northwest upslope flow into the mountains late this evening should dissipate 
quickly. Gradual drying will set up on developing north to NE flow 
overnight...however...the boundary layer will likely see the slowest 
drying. This should lead to low cloud formation and at least patchy 
fog. The areas that received appreciable rainfall as well as the mountain 
valleys will stand the best chance of fog development. 


Light winds are expected to veer around to southeast or perhaps even srly 
in southern sections through the day on Friday. The light upslope 
component and weakening cap may allow for isolated mountain showers 
Friday afternoon...but most locations should be dry. Maximum temperatures will top 
out a couple degrees below climatology. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
as of 130 PM Thursday...upper heights initially rise Friday night as a trough 
lifts away from the East Coast...but remain nearly steady thereafter 
leaving our region under slightly cyclonic flow over the weekend. By 
late Sunday however heights begin to fall again as another shortwave 
digs into the Midwest. At the surface weak high pressure will persist 
over the southeastern Continental U.S. Along with light southwesterly to westerly flow. 


For Saturday the main difficulty is to determine whether the surface high 
will provide enough subsidence to stifle diurnal convection. Models 
differ rather widely in their depiction of the cap. 09z sref member 
soundings mostly show a significant midlevel inversion...but the 
members which are uncapped show cape values a bit higher than climatology 
given the lack of ridging aloft. Dry middle-upper levels and lack of 
shear imply pulse-Mode threats if any cells are to fire. On the other 
hand...GFS/gefs imply capping and accordingly have no quantitative precipitation forecast response. 
Overall support seems to be better for a dry forecast...thus I have 
maintained it. High temperatures will be about normal for Saturday. 


The potential capping is a critical question for Sunday...but at that 
time there is the added issue of whether the cold front plowing across 
the Ohio/Tennessee valleys will have any impact during peak heating. Earlier 
model runs suggested the front would be near enough to put our area 
in a more favorable environment for strong storms Sunday afternoon...but 
latest guidance has delayed it and a fair number of the latest runs 
again keep convection to a minimum over the County warning forecast area. Ensemble solutions 
lend some support though...and in light of the uncertain model trends 
and continued expectation that the front will be nearby...low probability of precipitation 
have been kept Sunday afternoon...ramping up into Sunday night. Temperatures will 
inch up slightly further Sunday under higher thicknesses in the southwesterly 
flow. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 150 PM Thursday...substantial/anomalously strong upper height 
falls will be introduced to the eastern Continental U.S. Early in the medium 
range period...allowing a cold front to push toward the region. The 
latest global model runs have continued a recent trend of drier 
pre-frontal air and a weaker quantitative precipitation forecast response with the front in the late 
Sunday night/early Monday time frame. In fact...a consensus seems to 
be developing that probabilities for showers will be very low... 
except perhaps across the southern and eastern fringe of our 
Piedmont areas Monday afternoon...when the front will have a little 
more in the way of buoyancy to work with. Nevertheless...early next 
week is still too far in the future for US to get too cute with 
timing the position of the front...and these scenarios typically 
evolve more slowly than advertised by the models this time of year. 
Therefore...will generally feature a shotgunned chance pop across 
the County warning forecast area throughout Monday...diminishing to slight chance or less by 
evening. 


The remainder of the forecast periods looks very similar to what was 
experienced about a week ago...when an unusually cool/dry air mass 
became established over the region underneath an anomalously strong 
eastern trough. If anything...this air mass pay prove to be a little 
more persistent than last week/S. Temperatures are expected to be 5-10 
degrees below climatology through the period...while a halt in diurnal 
convection is expected through at least Wednesday. 


By the end of the period...there are signs that...again similar to 
last week/S events...the trough will effectively retrograde... 
allowing moisture to return within a developing wedge-like scenario. 
Probability of precipitation and clouds will therefore begin to increase by the end of the 
period...with temperatures remaining cool within a developing easterly low 
level flow regime. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...VFR stratocu remains across the area and may lower to MVFR 
by daybreak. MVFR fog also may develop before daybreak. Latest 
guidance shows any ceiling restriction slowly lifting to low VFR by 
noon...with low VFR lingering until late afternoon when it scatters 
out. NE wind becomes east-northeast by afternoon and continues into the 
evening. That said...there could be some east-southeast wind from late 
afternoon into the evening. 


Elsewhere...similar conditions to kclt. Kand has less of a chance for 
MVFR ceilings...but should still see MVFR visibility near daybreak. Kavl and 
khky also have a better chance of IFR visibility and ceilings near daybreak. 
Latest guidance shows convection developing from along the Blue 
Ridge west across the NC mountains have included a prob30 at kavl. Kavl 
will also see southerly wind for the afternoon. 


Outlook...Sat through Sunday morning should be quiet and VFR... 
except for the mountain valleys where early morning fog may occur. Scattered 
thunderstorms may return to the forecast area for Sunday 
afternoon...though more likely Monday...as another cold front 
approaches and then moves through the area by Monday night.
