NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
638 am EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
a ridge of high pressure will remain wedged over the Carolinas 
through Saturday as an upper trough remains centered to our west. To 
the east...a front will remain nearly stationary along the coast 
allowing deep Atlantic moisture to continue to spread over the area. 
Conditions are expected to return to more typical late Summer 
conditions by the middle of next week as the Bermuda strengthens to our 
east. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
morning update...precipitation remain established across the eastern zones 
outside of the watch area...which is good as ffg is higher in that 
area. Dual pol ffmp ratios have come down across the northern upstate and 
river gauges on the Pacolet river and gilder creek have come down. 
The middle Tyger river is still elevated...but headwaiter rain has 
diminished sigfntly. Don/T expect much in the way of Hydro concerns 
this morning...but an Special Weather Statement/advection is not out of the question across the 
eastern zones where convection is developing deep already. A couple of 
these eastern storms could become quite strong to severe over the next 
few hours. Probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast were once again adjacent east to account for recent 
trends. 


430 am EDT update...rain continues to reform across the northern upstate 
producing a good amount of precipitation within the past 3 hours. Dual pol 
ffmp has 3-hour ratios approaching 85 percent. The advisory is 
covering this area well...but this may need to be upgraded to a 
warning by daybreak if the rainfall doesn/T shift. Good clearing is 
seen to the west which was expected and probability of precipitation have adjacent a little more 
down in that area. The Escarpment and NC Piedmont areas are now 
seeing steady moderate rainfall...areas which have relatively high 
ffg compared to the upstate. 


As of 230 am EDT...a light to moderate precipitation shield has begun to 
develop more into the northern mountains and foothills as well the lower NC 
Piedmont. Instantaneous rates are varying by the way one and two 
in/hr...with the highest amounts occurring along the I-85 corridor 
from Blacksburg to the clt metropolitan. Expect this northward trend to 
slowly continue through the period. The good thing is the heaviest 
downpours are continuing to move and are not occurring where the 
greatest rainfall fell previously. There could be an isolate Hydro 
threat through the morning...but the lack of deep convection has 
limited this potential....yet see no need to expire of the flash Flood Advisory with 
an ongoing precipitation event. 


Things should begin to improve precipitation/wise through the day with ulvl 
energy transiting NE while a new trough axis develops to the west of 
the forecast area. There will be waning atl moisture and some continued isen 
lift over a weakening surface ridge...but deep convective enhancement 
and anchoring cells are not favored this afternoon. The low level flow 
will become weak through 700 mb and as The Wedge boundary loosens overall 
moisture flux will be reduced through the afternoon...but there will 
still be a threat for pulse thunderstorms with heavy rainfall in areas of 
greater instability. A stationary front will remain to southeast of the forecast area 
overnight...robing moisture into the area as deep convection fires 
along the coast. Plenty of cloud cover and lingering precipitation will 
hold maximum temperatures around 10-12 degrees below normal...but areas of diff 
heating could create a bust potential. Mins will remain a few 
degrees below normal...middle to upper 60s non/mountains and l60s mountain 
valleys. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday night/... 
as of 220 am EDT Friday...the short term forecast picks up at 12z on 
Saturday with the wet pattern expected to continue through early 
next week. The upper trough axis will remain west of the 
Appalachians through the weekend and gradually drift eastward early 
next week...deamplify a bit...and take on a more positive tilt. 


On Saturday...as The Wedge pattern persists deep layer moisture will 
remain over the County warning forecast area with the highest precipitable water values expected over the 
southern and eastern zones. The latest runs of the mesoscale models 
indicate that the greatest quantitative precipitation forecast is more likely Sat afternoon/evening 
as numerous lobes of positive vorticity advection rotate around the upper trough and over the 
forecast area. This coupled with the persistent isentropic upglide 
should produce at least another quarter to one inch of rainfall over 
the County warning forecast area by early sun. 


On Sunday...a weak cold front will try and push its way into the 
western Carolinas from the northwest but will likely stall somewhere over 
the NC Piedmont with drier air behind it. Overall quantitative precipitation forecast potential does 
not look as favorable over most of the County warning forecast area with the greatest 
amounts likely just to our south and east along the stalled bndy. 
The axis of heavier precipitation could of course shift depending on how 
far south the bndy actually makes it. At any rate...I kept probability of precipitation at 
high end chance to likely through early Monday with values tapering 
off from the northwest to southeast by the end of my period 12z Monday. Temperatures will 
vary little from day to day with highs well below normal and lows 
near normal. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 1220 am Friday...this medium range period beginning at 12z 
Monday with the upper air pattern with a trough axis west of the 
Appalachians. This trough will gradually transition into more zonal 
west to east flow in middle week. As the trough breaks down...a weak 
upper low will be left over the lower Mississippi Valley. As the 
general westerly flow increases in middle week...our airmass will 
become drier and temperatures will return to near normal. On Monday...the 
stalled out surface front from northern Florida to along the Carolina coast 
will have weak lows riding NE along the front. It appears the 
tropical low Bertha is forecast to be east of the Carolinas out 
toward Bermuda on Tuesday as it turns from northwest to north then NE avoiding 
the East Coast. By Wednesday and Thursday we can expect a typical summertime 
pattern of PM thunderstorms favoring the mountains with less out over the 
Piedmont. Some upper energy will be approaching from the northwest late 
Thursday...but most effects should hold off until after the end of the 
current forecast. 


Monday high temperatures will be around 7 degrees below normal then rebound 
to near normal Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...light to moderate rain shield will continue to come and go 
at clt this morning with continued low of ceilings MVFR...possibly 
IFR... through 16z. Not much improvement this afternoon as surface 
heating will be slow. The taf remains pessimistic with MVFR ceilings 
expected most of the day then a drop back IFR late around 03z. Thunder 
chances remain high enough for prob30 mention after 21z. 


Elsewhere...a mixed bag of ceilings/visibility this morning depending on the 
intensity and location of rainfall. All sites should remain low 
MVFR...if not IFR...this morning mainly for ceilings. Kand should remain 
VFR this morning and into the afternoon as drier air mixes in from 
the west. Other sites will likely tempo MVFR/VFR through the 
day...with lowering ceilings to IFR late in the taf period. Thunder 
chances remain high enough for thunderstorms in the vicinity mention all sites this 
afternoon. 


Outlook...unsettled weather with enhanced precipitation chances 
along with morning fog/stratus are expected through the weekend.
