NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
716 PM EDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slide east of the area tonight as a weak cold 
front passes over the Carolinas overnight. Surface ridging will 
quickly build again for Wednesday while precipiation chances 
increase on Thursday as moist southerly flow returns. Yet another 
cold front is expected to approach the Carolinas Friday evening with 
high pressure returning for the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday night/... 
2315 UTC update...winds were updated to incorporate the latest NAM 
model data. Probability of precipitation were updated from radar trends...and sky cover 
was updated from satellite imagery. 


As of 230 PM...latest satellite images indicated sunny conditions 
across the forecast area...a few cumulus over Graham County. Latest 
mesoscale analysis indicate that the forecast area was cape free. 
However...low values existed across eastern Tennessee south across Alabama and 
northwest Georgia. Recent runs of cams indicate that convection the develop 
along an old front across the I-20 corridor will track 
southeast...missing the upper Savannah River valley. Given the 
current satellite trends...it appears the cams are correct. 
Otherwise...deep mixing should provide gusts around 20 kts through 
early this evening. Winds should decouple around 1z...settling from 
the SW slightly below 10 kts. 


Tonight...near term models indicate that a cold front associated 
with a middle Atlantic clipper will reach the southern Appalachians 
around 0z...passing south of the NC/SC line by 6z. As the front 
encounters the mountains this evening...weak Cape May pool across the 
Tennessee border counties of NC. The 12z 4km WRF indicates that weak 
showers/thunderstorms develop along The Spine of the Appalachians 
between 3z to 8z. The NAM and GFS are generally on board with the 4 
km WRF. However...given low dewpoints and nearly zero cape this 
afternoon...I assume that instability will struggle to exist past 
midnight. I will indicate chance to schc across the Tennessee border counties 
this evening...with no mention after 5z. Fog will be possible 
anywhere that rain falls. Low temperatures are forecast to range 
from the u30s to low 40s across the mountains to around 50 across the 
upstate and NE Georgia. 


Wednesday...weak high pressure should build south across the western 
Carolinas during the daylight hours. Light north-northeast winds are 
forecast to develop during the pre dawn hours and remain through the 
day. Rising middle level heights and lingering low bl dewpoints will 
yield dry conditions across the region. High temperatures should 
range from the middle 60s within the mountain valleys to low to middle 70s 
along and east of I-85. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 300 PM EDT Tuesday...short term begins with rising thicknesses 
across the southeast as weak ridging aloft builds in. Northwest flow 
over the western Carolinas will help to push the surface high 
pressure farther offshore as another shortwave digs into the middle 
south. Wavetrain slides quickly east during the day on Thursday and 
shortwave damps somewhat as it pushes into the southeast...but still 
enough for all guidance to develop showers and thunderstorms across 
the southern Appalachians. Finger of stability persists just in the 
Lee of the mountains but both NAM and GFS increase SBCAPE values 
across upstate South Carolina and northeast Georgia... with NAM 
pushing upwards of 2000 j/kg. GFS substantially lower than that with 
only limited SBCAPE values pushing into the forecast area. Have 
tried to reflect a compromise which seems to be in decent agreement 
with Storm Prediction Center day3 convective outlook...bringing general thunder into the 
west and southwest portions of the forecast area. Weak deep-layer 
shear /generally less than 35kt 0-6km/ coincides with these 
encroaching SBCAPE values so while at this time severe thunderstorms 
are not anticipated...evolution of the shortwave will have to be 
monitored in subsequent forecasts. Should see a bit of lowering high 
temperatures for Thursday afternoon in response to the falling heights 
associated with the shortwave itself as well as increased cloud 
cover. 


Shortwave pushes through Thursday night into Friday morning leaving 
weak near zonal flow aloft over the area on Friday. Southerly 
surface flow will continue to pump moisture especially into the 
Piedmont with highs again reaching well above seasonal normals 
across the area. Meanwhile another more significant trough dips out 
of Canada into the Midwest and Great Lakes...dragging a cold front 
along with it. Some concern still on timing with the GFS 6-12 hours 
faster than the European model (ecmwf) /this has been the trend for the past few 
runs/ but in any case should start to see an increase in probability of precipitation late 
in the short term period especially across the mountains as the 
influence of the front pushes into the forecast area. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 am EDT Tuesday...the medium range forecast period initializes 
Friday morning ahead of a cold front pushing southeast through the 
Ohio Valley into the Tennessee Valley region. A surface wave developing 
along the frontal axis will deepen as southerly flow over the 
southeast sets up an improving warm sector where dewpoints are forecast 
to surge into the upper 50s to lower 60s with surface temperatures 
forecast in the 70s to near 80. As diurnal heating maximizes...would 
not be surprised to see scattered convection on Friday ahead of the 
front...as depicted on both the GFS/ECMWF. That said...models favor 
quite a bit of moisture in the middle/upper levels limiting lapse 
rates...thus dampening the potential for deep/organized convection 
despite modest shear through the profile. Forecast features chance 
level probability of precipitation across the east while increasing likely probability of precipitation are favored 
over the mountains with thunder mentioned regionwide. The front will 
push through the region during the evening hours with an additional 
round of showers/thunderstorms possible along and just behind the 
frontal axis. By that time expecting instability to be at a premium 
therefore only isolated/scattered thunderstorms look feasible at 
that point. High pressure will spill in sharply on Saturday morning 
from the west leading to a drying forecast for the remainder of the 
weekend amongst near normal temperatures and mostly sunny skies. 
The next round of weather is forecast on Monday as another weak 
shortwave slides through the Tennessee Valley into the southern Apps. 


&& 


Aviation /23z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...VFR. Sky cover will increase somewhat overnight as a cold 
front approaches...but not enough for a low VFR ceiling. The wind will 
veer from SW to northwest tonight...and NE by daybreak...but will remain 
rather light. Model guidance does not support a visibility restriction. 


Elsewhere...VFR. Sky cover will increase ahead of an approaching 
front...but enough for a low VFR ceiling at kavl only. Foothills winds 
will veer from SW to northwest this evening...then NE by dawn....and southeast on 
Wednesday afternoon. Kavl winds will bo northwest early and remain there 
until Wednesday afternoon when they go southeast as well. 


Outlook...an approaching warm front and resultant moisture return 
will bring better chances for precipitation/restrictions across the area 
later in the week...perhaps starting Thursday morning. A cold front 
will affect the area Friday into early Saturday...bringing another 
round of rain/possible thunderstorms and restrictions. VFR will 
return for the rest of the weekend.
