NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
154 PM EDT Sat may 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
Bermuda high pressure will persist across the region into early next 
week...with moist southerly flow supporting scattered afternoon and 
evening showers and thunderstorms. A cold front approaches the area 
on Tuesday and is expected to become stationary through the middle 
of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 145 PM...fairly healthy cumulus field is occasionally popping a 
stray/short-lived shower or two across the area this afternoon. With 
cape values of less than 1000 j/kg expected to persist...and rather 
warm middle-levels concentrating what cape there is in the low 
levels...expect the character of deep convection to remain showery 
through the evening hours...and any mention of thunder has been 
removed. 


As of 1055 am...cu/stratocu expanded rapidly across the Piedmont/ 
fhills once the boundary layer began to warm this morning...and in 
light of persistence of relatively moist southeast low level flow...sky 
cover was increased across much of the area...mainly from the 
Escarpment south and east through the afternoon. A few small showers 
were moving across the SC midlands late this morning...likely 
associated with another in a series of subtle boundaries originating 
from the coast. Although instability will be quite muted this 
afternoon...owing largely to above-climatology middle-level temperatures resulting 
from rising heights...the combination of terrain effects/weak 
upslope/differential heating and subtle boundaries should allow for 
isolated deep convection to form just about anywhere this 
afternoon...mainly in the form of showers. The extensive cumulus field 
should hinder insolation enough to keep maximum temperatures close to climatology. 


As of 645 am...fog and low clouds have been quite common within the 
mountain valleys and across the NC northern mountains and foothills. I will update 
the forecast to adjust visible lower and indicate greater coverage of 
fog. Otherwise...the current forecast appears in great shape. 


As of 245 am...near term models agree that the forecast area will 
remain under middle level ridging with broad surface high pressure. Return 
flow will continue through the daylight hours as a well organized 
low pressure system tracks northeast across the middle Mississippi 
River valley. Using a blend of MOS...afternoon dewpoint values are 
forecast to range in the low to middle 60s. High temperatures may rise 
a degree or two over values observed on Friday. Forecast soundings 
show rather shallow middle level lapse rates...with overall convective available potential energy 
generally remaining less than 500 j/kg. Given weak flow from 0 to 15 
kft and level of free convection around 5 kft...it appears that rain showers and thunderstorms and rain will be 
low. I will forecast 20 to 30 probability of precipitation across the mountains and adjacent 
foothills...with 20 probability of precipitation east of I-85. 


Tonight...convection across the Piedmont and foothills should 
quickly dissipate after sunset. However...the surface low is expected to 
track NE along the Ohio River...resulting in strengthening of h925 
and h850 south winds across the mountains I will keep 20 probability of precipitation across the 
mountains to highlight the potential for isolated upslope rain showers and possibly 
the arrival of a fading line of convection from the west. Low 
temperatures are forecast to range from the l60s across the mountains 
valleys to the middle 60s east. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 2 am Saturday morning...the short term forecast picks up at 12z on 
Sunday with upper ridging lingering over the region and a low 
amplitude upper trough slowly making its way towards the County warning forecast area. Over 
the remainder of the period...the ridge axis slides farther off the 
Atlantic coast while the trough axis will eventually over over the 
Carolinas by the end of the period early Tuesday. 


At the surface...a low that spins up on the southern end of an elongated 
frontal zone will slide just north of the forecast area on 
sun...however...the models are slow to bring the bulk of the moist 
air southward and into the County warning forecast area. Its still looking like most of the 
deeper moisture wont overspread over the area until Monday. We should 
still see favorable upslope flow on sun along with greater upper level 
support for lift...especially over the NC/tenn border region. As we move 
through Monday...widespread showers and ts are looking likely with southerly 
flow to our south and northerly flow associated with the Great Lakes high 
to our north. By Tuesday morning some of the model guidance...especially the 
00z GFS...has the high pushing most of the southerly flow to our south 
with northerly winds over the bulk of the County warning forecast area...however this is the most 
aggressive scenario. Its more likely that the we will remain 
sandwiched in between the northerly and southerly flow into Wednesday. As for the 
sensible forecast...no sig changes were needed for sun with probability of precipitation raised 
to widespread likely for Monday afternoon/early evening. They remain at 
high end chance through 12z Tuesday with lingering deep moisture over the 
area. Model profiles continue to show healthy amounts of surface based 
cape both sun and Monday with Storm Prediction Center including our County warning forecast area under a slight 
risk area both days. Suffice to say...conditions look favorable for 
widespread ts activity with some storms becoming severe. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 100 PM Saturday...there is some degree of bagginess and/or 
upper level troughing in the pattern atop the southeast Continental U.S. Prognosticated to 
start off the period. Accompanied by weak ridging nosing southwestward into 
the southern Appalachians...sensible weather will continue to feature 
solid chance probability of precipitation and maximum temperatures a few degree f below climatology for 
Wednesday. The pattern is shaping up to evolve only slowly through 
Thursday...featuring lingering upper level troughing and some degree 
of weak low level ridging. Probably best to keep the above climatology pop going 
through the new day 5 with near normal temperatures. 


For the latter half of the period...if the 30/12 UTC European model (ecmwf) is 
correct...upper level ridging will build back atop the region. The 
wpc extended range guidance seems to favor this...featuring a warming 
trend Friday and Saturday...with daily thunderstorm chances retreating back 
to climatology values. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Saturday through Thursday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...sct/bkn cumulus in the 035-050 range and southeast 
winds at 5-10 kts will continue through the afternoon. Very spotty/ 
mainly short lived rain showers will continue to develop across the 
area this afternoon...but coverage is expected to be too sparse to 
warrant any taf mention at this time. Otherwise...the main concern will be 
the potential for restrictions late tonight...as model guidance 
suggests another surge of low level Atlantic moisture will push into 
the area by daybreak. There is a strong consensus in the guidance 
that this surge will result in IFR ceilings developing around 12z at 
most terminals. However...in light of the fact that this was also 
more or less advertised for this morning...but didn/T pan out too 
well...opted to generally keep conditions at the low MVFR 
levels...except at the climatologically favored locations of kavl 
and khky. 


Outlook...the pattern is expected to become more unsettled/active 
from Sunday afternoon into at least mid-week...as a cold front 
stalls over the region. Expect at least localized areas of morning 
fog and/or stratus most days...with good chances for afternoon/evening 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain each day.
