NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
456 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the area tonight...with high pressure 
building in Friday into Saturday. A low pressure system will 
approach from the west late Saturday through Sunday night. The low 
will lift northeast along the coast early next week...but leave a 
trailing cold front near the Carolina coast. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 500 PM EDT...have updated grids partially to account for the 
Severe Thunderstorm Watch recently issued...with a corresponding 
increase in probability of precipitation in those areas. Across the rest of the area...have 
significantly reduced and in some cases removed probability of precipitation as instability 
minimum is working its way into western zones from north Georgia. Still 
robust cape with sb values 2000-2500 j/kg mainly across the east and 
northeast areas and have received reports of hail up to half dollar 
size. Updated products should be out shortly. 


Otherwise...drier dewpoints are expected to overspread the area this 
evening...as the surface trough progresses east. This should bring a 
pretty quick end to convective chances. The remainder of the near 
term will be inactive/mostly clear and quite warm...with temperatures 
expected to average about 10 degrees above climatology through the period. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday night/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Thursday...the short term forecast period initializes 
on Friday night amidst shortwave 500 mb ridging over the southeast while 
an 500 mb cyclone rotates over the southern rockies. At the 
surface...high pressure over the northeast will build south along 
the eastern Seaboard attempting to setup a short lived wedge...while 
cyclogensis develops/strengthens over the Southern Plains. A warm 
front looks to spread north over the deep south in association with 
the a fore mentioned surface cyclone into Saturday with convection 
activating along it over portions of north MS/Alabama as well as 
west/middle Tennessee. Closer to home...The Wedge front makes a push into 
the region on Saturday morning before retreating northeast into the 
middle/late afternoon hours as the convectively active warm front 
surges. 


The upper trough will be on the move Sunday with the surface cyclone 
moving northeast. The cold front associated with said cyclone is 
expected to push through the Ohio/Tennessee valleys on Sunday possibly 
yielding strong/severe convection thanks to an abundantly unstable 
airmass backed up by an approaching 500 mb shortwave. As for northeast 
Georgia and the western Carolinas...the front should remain to the west 
through peak heating however soundings continue to favor substantial 
instability about the region thanks to middle 60s dewpoints and modest 
low/middle level lapse rates...all supporting scattered shra/tsra. 
Expecting any development to weaken with heating loss into the 
evening hours Sunday as the front continues approaching from the 
west...likely banking against the western slopes of the southern 
Apps by middle morning Monday. 


As for the forecast...probability of precipitation will increase from the west Saturday with 
slight chances favored over the SW mountains by late 
morning...spreading/increasing north and east into the afternoon 
hours where middle chances probability of precipitation are mentioned. Further increases are 
warranted Saturday night into Sunday given the warm frontal passage with the 
vast majority of the forecast area under likely probability of precipitation by daybreak...while 
categorical levels are anchored along the southern Blue Ridge 
Escarpment. These pop levels will persist through the day before 
gradually lowering into the overnight. Regarding any hazardous 
weather...cant rule out a strong/severe thunderstorm on Saturday along 
the warm front...with better chances being on Sunday when 
instability is forecast to be higher and deeper through the column. 
Precipitation totals will range from 1-2 inches over the weekend 
with locally heavier amounts possible associated with any deeper 
convection. Temperatures through the period will remain above 
normal. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 100 PM Thursday...the model guidance continues to display 
sigfnt differences with the large scale pattern and sensible weather 
across the southeast Continental U.S. Beginning Monday. The GFS is still the drier and 
more suppressed model allowing strong Canadian high pressure to build 
in after a moist frontal passage Monday...while the European model (ecmwf) has a much wetter solution. 
The European model (ecmwf) is phasing an upper trough across the Midwest and swings it southeast 
inducing an inverted gom trough...which then moves NE along stationary 
front over the Carolinas. The GFS ens means also show much spread 
with the 500 mb pattern beginning Monday...but it/S means support the split 
flow pattern of the op GFS. With so much uncertainty...will maintain 
low end probability of precipitation giving more weight to climatology and consmos. Instability 
should remain fairly low after the frontal passage and lowering surface TD/S...so 
not anticipating strong or severe activity....mainly isolate to scattered 
general thunderstorms. Temperatures could be an issue as the amount of deep 
moisture and air mass change/mix is still unclear. So...will also 
give MOS more weight with temperatures remaining a Cat or so above normal 
Monday...then returning to normal values Tuesday through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt/khky...have removed tempo thunderstorms and rain at kclt for the 21z amend with 
lack of cumulus across the area as well as a bit of an instability 
minimum. Have left vcsh in through 00z. Thunderstorms in the vicinity/ tempo for thunderstorms and rain will 
continue at khky beginning at 19z. Otherwise...convection should 
diminish by around sunset...as drier air pushes across the area in 
the wake of a surface trough. This is expected to result in VFR 
conditions through the period...although some fog may develop toward 
daybreak north and east of kclt. SW winds of around 10 kts...with 
gusts as high as 20 kts will be possible this afternoon...especially at 
kclt. Winds will diminish after sunset...turning toward the west and northwest 
by the end of the evening. 


Elsewhere...thunder chances are expected to be less at the upstate 
SC terminals and kavl this afternoon...as the strongest instability 
it setting up across the foothills and Piedmont of NC. 
Nevertheless...the latest trends indicate scattered showers should 
develop over the next couple of hours...warranting a vcsh mention. 
Certainly cannot rule out a direct hit on any of these terminals... 
or even some occl thunder...but probabilities are too low to include 
in a tempo at this time. Otherwise...trends similar to kclt...with VFR 
conditions expected. 


Outlook...VFR conditions should persist through Friday night. 
Unsettled weather/possible restrictions/convection return from the 
west over the weekend.
