NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1042 PM EDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


Synopsis... 
an upper low will approach the area with a frontal passage Monday 
morning. A second major front ahead of a mass of cold air from 
Canada is expected by Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
as of 1030 PM EDT Saturday...well...thank goodness the rain is 
coming to an end on the south side of Charlotte...where radar 
estimates of storm total precipitation are upwards of 7 inches. Gsp 
stp is a little on the high side...but certainly looks like a good 
swath of 5-6 inches. These all set up on the boundary but were 
enhanced by low-level shear...so even with decreasing instability 
the storms were able to anchor over the area. Not in the clear yet 
as another round of moderate rain is moving across the upstate. Have 
updated probability of precipitation again to account for trends but focus has been on 
current weather situation this evening. 


Otherwise...an interesting surface pattern prevails over the region 
as a wedge boundary continues to hold...actually pushing a bit 
further to the south over the last few hours...all while a warm 
front approaches from the south. Aloft...shortwave vorticity energy is 
pushing through the Tennessee Valley at this time and will likely promote 
further expansion of convection over western NC through the 
afternoon/evening. Currently...convection has initiated in the warm 
sector across northeast Georgia with propagation taking said cells 
northeast up the i85 corridor over the next few hours. Latest 
mesoanalysis provides an illustration of The Wedge boundary location 
as SBCAPE plots indicate a sharp 500+ joules gradient along/south of 
i85 with surface winds reflecting such with east-northeast flow dominating over 
the NC Piedmont...southwest towards gsp...with east-southeast flow further 
south in the warm sector. The majority of the forecast area remains 
under the marginal risk for severe weather this afternoon with large hail 
and damaging winds being the primary threat. With that...enhanced 
srh in proximity to The Wedge boundary could yield a brief spin up 
tornado if convective boundary interaction occurs. With deep 
updrafts and precipitable waters  in excess of 1.5 inches localized heavy rainfall 
adjacent to any heavier convection is also a possibility. 


Moving along into the overnight...expecting the overall intensity 
and coverage of convection to deplete as heating is lost and the 
warm front pushes north of the area thereby removing any surface 
focusing mechanisms. However...guidance continues to favor rain showers and 
perhaps thunderstorms and rain over the mountains where upsloping will enhance updrafts. 
Given the rainfall...once the convection wains would not be 
surprised if patchy/widespread fog consumes much of the forecast area by 
morning. Sunday looks fairly similar to today aside for the entire 
forecast area being firmly in the warm sector. Shear looks a bit better 
as a prefrontal trough moves into the region...while another piece of 
500 mb shortwave energy does the same. Strong/severe convection is 
possible on Sunday with large hail and damaging winds being the 
primary concern as surface flow will be veered thus resulting in less 
favorable tornado conditions. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 1205 PM EDT Saturday...upper heights atop the southeast Continental U.S. Will 
begin to fall on Monday as Southern Plains energy translates 
eastward. The recently posted op runs of the 30/12 UTC NAM/GFS 
support the 30/00 UTC European model (ecmwf) trend of the main low level baroclinic 
zone lingering near or northwest of the County warning forecast area. Hence...in conjunction with 
the developing favorable upper level dynamics...chances for 
diurnally enhanced deep convection will be increasing. Initial 
thoughts will be for on an upward bump in thunderstorm probabilities Monday 
afternoon. Continued unsettled but less warm weather conditions are 
expected on Tuesday given the prognosticated slow evolution of the mean 
pattern featuring broad/deep SW flow and the slow southeast sagging of 
attendant frontal system. Will plan and keeping solid middle-chance 
pop if not an upward nudge to likely. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 130 PM Saturday...the ext range will feature a developing 
unseasonal and broad eastern Continental U.S. Ulvl trough. This trough will interact 
with a stationary front trapped in a deep mean SW/ly flow. There are 
sigfnt modeled differences as to the amount of short wave energy traversing 
the trough...the degree of atl cyclogenesis...the amount of low level cold 
air making it to the Carolinas...tilt of the ulvl trough...and 
available moisture. With this said...will maintain grids close to 
the previous forecast. Since the system is outside the norms for this 
time of year will also side more with the dynamical solutions as opposed 
to MOS guidance. 


Do believe it will be a fairly active period with the frontal zone 
bisecting the County warning forecast area providing a focusing mechanism for -shra and 
perhaps a couple general thunderstorms Wednesday/Thursday afternoons. Some drier air 
looks to work in ahead of developing Omega ridge Friday/Sat while the 
surface low pulls NE of the area. This will confine the better moisture 
across the NC mountains and perhaps produce non/accumulate -snsh Thursday night 
across the highest elevations as 850 mb temperatures drop to -2 c according to 
the European model (ecmwf)...yet only down to around zero going by the GFS. Thursday night 
will be the coldest at the surface as well with high elev temperatures 
dropping to just above freezing. This scenario will be watched for 
possible frost/freeze concerns. With cloud cover likely remaining 
mcldy/cloudy and cooler cp air mixing beginning Thursday...maximum temperatures will 
remain near normal Wednesday...with a decrease by a couple cats Thursday/Friday 
then a return to normal levels Sat as surface ridging engulfs the southeast 
states. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...only changes to kclt 03z taf amend are to 
delay IFR ceilings another hour while holding onto tempo thunderstorms and rain through 
04z. Otherwise...widespread convection around this evening with thunderstorms and rain 
moving into the khky/kclt areas...with a bit of a brief lull 
elsewhere. Have tried to incorporate this into the tafs. IFR ceilings at 
khky should expand west and southwest with IFR expected overnight 
everywhere except possibly kand. Should see some improvement to MVFR 
and then VFR Sunday afternoon for all but khky...currently expected 
to remain MVFR. East-northeast to NE winds this evening will veer southeast overnight 
and to SW tomorrow...though with Standard down-valley component at 
kavl. Other concern is thunderstorms and rain. Convective available potential energy continue to drop off overnight 
but enough that we could see embedded ts at any time...but for the 
most part kept just -shra but trended toward prob30 thunderstorms and rain Sunday 
mid-morning...then thunderstorms in the vicinity by Sunday afternoon. Will have to monitor 
forecast trends to update in real time. 


Outlook...unsettled weather/occasional convection/restrictions are 
expected to continue into early next week...as a front becomes 
stalled near the area. Definitive drying does not appear likely 
until at least mid-week.
