NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
146 am EDT Wednesday Sep 3 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak front lingering generally west to east across the region will 
dissipate today and tonight. Expect weak high pressure to our north 
today and Thursday as moist flow over the southeast keeps a chance 
of afternoon thunderstorms. A stronger cold front will sweep through 
the region over the weekend providing an additional focus for 
thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. Cooler high pressure will 
highlight the weather pattern for next week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 145 am...convection across the NC foothills dissipating...but 
line of convection moving out of the southwestern mountains into the upstate and 
NE Georgia holding on. Still expect it to dissipate through the night...but 
could linger the next few hours...especially over the upper sav 
River Valley area. Should be quite a bit of lingering debris clouds 
into the morning with lows well above normal. 


As of 945 PM EDT...outflows from the midlands and Piedmont 
convection have moved west to trigger additional thunderstorms in the residual 
evening instability across the forecast area. This has been 
occurring in tandem with a convective line moving southeast into the western 
mountains ahead of an approaching upper shortwave and a weak surface front. 
It remains quite possible that these outflow systems will meet in 
the middle near the Blue Ridge to trigger one last line of robust 
thunderstorms late this evening/early overnight. However...surface based 
instability is slowly waning on the laps analysis...and infrared imagery 
and lightning strike rates are subsiding with the activity arriving 
from the northwest. The overall trend should thus be a gradual diminution 
of coverage and intensity of the thunderstorms. However...will still need to 
carry at least isolated to low end scattered probability of precipitation across the area overnight 
given the upper shortwave moving ovhd. Expect continued mild mins in 
the soupy airmass with debris clouds around all night...and another 
round of Mountain Valley fog. 


On Wednesday...the models agree with stalling the remnants of the 
upper wave over the Piedmont to our south and east...yet still 
develop convection in the afternoon because of ample moisture at low 
levels. This seems like a decent bet over the mountains and along the 
eastern border close to the wave remnants...but there is uncertainty 
in between these two areas. The guidance paints a slight chance pop 
across the entire area while the ongoing forecast has a chance. Will 
keep the chance everywhere based on the latest sref for the time 
being. Temperatures should be a few degrees cooler based on increased cloud 
cover. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Friday night/... 
as of 100 am EDT Tuesday...the short term period initializes on 
Thursday morning amidst broad southeast upper ridge and easterly 
shifting surface high pressure across the middle Atlantic. Old frontal 
axis from previous days frontal passage will remain draped across portions of 
the southeast initially...before lifting northward as a warm front 
through the period. Thus...modest diurnally induced instability is 
expected both Thursday and Friday afternoon with pulse type 
convection being the primary storm Mode. That said...forecast will 
only feature chance probability of precipitation associated with scattered convection across 
the upstate and Piedmont regions both days as profiles are rather 
warm/moist aloft leading to moderate capping in the middle/upper 
levels. As for the mountains...further proximity from surface 
ridging along with east southeasterly upslope flow will yield 
greater precipitation chances thus higher probability of precipitation. Therefore likely 
probability of precipitation are featured across portions of the upper French Broad and 
northern NC mountains Thursday and Friday as scattered/numerous 
showers and thunderstorms are forecast. Temperatures through the 
short term period will remain at or just below normal as persistent 
low/middle level moisture axis and convection lead to partly/mostly 
cloudy skies each day. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Tuesday...latest global models continue to agree 
that an upper trough will progress eastward across the Great Lakes 
region Sat and into the eastern Seaboard by sun. This will push a 
trailing cold front into the southern Appalachians by late Sat. 
With increasing Atlantic moisture advection in southeasterly flow along with 
diurnal buoyancy...probability of precipitation ramp up into the solid chance range over the 
Piedmont and into the likely range over the NC mountains Sat afternoon. 
The front will then considerably slows down its Seward progression 
as it reaches the Tennessee/NC border line. Both the GFS and the European model (ecmwf) 
indicate that the frontal boundary will become stationary over the 
Piedmont by early sun before it eventually pushes south of the area 
by Monday. This will yield widespread convection ongoing Sunday into 
early Monday and thus have mentioned solid to likely probability of precipitation across much 
of the region during this period. Given the moist profile (pw values 
near 2")...good low level convergence and moderate instability...heavy 
rainfall looks to be the main concern att. Monday and Tuesday...probability of precipitation ramp 
down as the front remains south of the area and a wedge of surface 
high builds in from the NE. Temperatures will stay near normal 
Friday/Sat before cooling down considerably by Monday. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...convection northwest of the airfield continues to dissipate this 
evening. However...an rain showers may move through...so have vcsh for now. 
Otherwise...mainly just debris ceilings this morning with no 
restrictions. SW winds may toggle briefly northwest if any outflows can 
make it that far southeast this morning. Expect mainly SW wind after 
daybreak with southerly wind for the afternoon. Building cumulus and 
continued high level ceilings through the day with scattered afternoon thunderstorms and rain 
coverage once again. 


Elsewhere...line of convection holding together as it moves out of 
the southwestern NC mountains into the upstate and NE Georgia. Have thunderstorms in the vicinity for the western 
sites with just vcsh for khky. These should dissipate before daybreak 
leaving mainly debris clouds through early morning. Do not expect much 
in the way of restrictions at the taf sites given the clouds. 
Generally SW winds turning S to even southeast through the day...then calm 
this evening. Kavl the exception where southerly winds become northwesterly this 
morning then back to south-southwest for the afternoon...before becoming calm 
this evening. Of course...any surviving outflow boundaries will 
briefly turn winds northwest. Expect more scattered afternoon/evening thunderstorms and rain in the 
unstable airmass. 


Outlook...generally VFR conditions are expected through the rest of 
the week...but low cloud and fog restrictions are likely early each 
morning in the mountain valleys. Diurnally driven thunderstorms and rain are expected 
each afternoon and early evening...with the most coverage over the 
mountains. Thunderstorm coverage may increase this weekend as a cold 
front arrives.
