NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
316 am EDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
h pressure will linger across the region early this week. Weak 
disturbances may ripple across the lower and middle appalachian 
region by middle to late week. A cool and moist area of high pressure 
is expected to settle across the western Carolinas and northeast 
Georgia this weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 300 am EDT...regional radars show the back edge of the 
precipitation generally lifting north of the Interstate 40 corridor 
early this morning as an upper vorticity maxima crosses the region 
from the SW. However...a moisture plume oriented more north/S over the 
eastern Piedmont will likely keep shower activity going longer east of 
Interstate 77...perhaps until a little after daybreak. 


Otherwise...plenty of low level moisture will linger behind the 
departing upper shortwave...with rather persistent low level stratus 
likely developing through the morning hours. Little to no upper 
support is then expected for the remainder of the day after the 
shortwave departs...leaving light SW flow over the area between a 
trough near the MS River Valley and an offshore Atlantic ridge. Any 
better tropical moisture should remain shunted to the coastal 
region. In the absence of any deeper layer forcing...weak convection 
will be preferred along the higher terrain for the afternoon and evening 
hours...with a secondary maxima in the eastern Piedmont closer to the 
deeper moisture. However...profiles do not exhibit much instablity 
given the expected warm middle level temperatures. Another round of low 
stratus will be possible tonight...most likely in the mountain 
valleys. Expect maxes to reach near climatology this afternoon once the stratus 
scatters...but with mins 1 to 2 categories above climatology tonight. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 am Monday...on Tuesday...the County Warning Area will remain under the 
western edge of a dirty 592 dm ridge. Forecast soundings shows a 
layer of nearly saturated air between h8-h7...under a well defined 
h65 inversion. I will forecast partly to mostly cloudy conditions 
through the day. Using a blend of preferred MOS...high 
temperatures should range from the l80s within the mountain valleys to 
upper 80s east...virtually near normals. However...convective available potential energy across 
the region should peak near values of 1000 j/kg...with cin 
lingering well into the afternoon. Provided flow less than 10 kts 
from the surface to 15 kft...storm motions and convergence will remain 
limited. I will forecast diurnal chance probability of precipitation across the mountains and 
adjacent foothills with schc values east. 


On Wednesday...short range models indicate that the County Warning Area will fall 
within a weakness within the middle level ridge. In fact...a short wave is 
expected to ripple across the middle Appalachians during the 
afternoon....possibly brushing the region with middle level forcing. 
NAM forecast soundings indicate the cape values will increase to 
1500-2000 j/kg by the heat of the afternoon. In addition...high 
temperatures are forecast to rise around 2 degree above values 
expected for Tuesday. Given the large field of instability and 
passing disturbance across the middle Appalachians...a broken band of 
thunderstorms and rain may develop over the Virginia/WV during the afternoon...spreading southeast 
during the late afternoon and evening. I will forecast chance probability of precipitation 
across the mountains and NC foothills...with schc east of I-85. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 310 am Monday...middle level heights are forecast to decrease 
across the County Warning Area during the extended period. By the end of the 
week...the center of a 595 dm ridge will settle over the northeast 
Continental U.S....with a broad weakness over the southeast. This pattern 
shift will provide near normal temperatures during the 
weekdays...with a cooling trend during the weekend. I will 
forecast schc to chance diurnal probability of precipitation Wednesday through Friday for 
showers/thunderstorms...coverage favoring the mountains however...the 
surface pattern by Sat night...especially on the 0z GFS...appears to 
show a developing area of cad. The GFS indicates that broad and 
weak isentropic lift and upslope flow will be possible across the 
region on Sunday. I did not want to sink high temperatures to cad 
levels...but did adjust a little cooler. In addition...I have 
mostly cloudy conditions through most of the weekend. Probability of precipitation will 
remain in the chance range each day this weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...persistent rain showers in the srly flow of tropical moisture 
should wrap up mainly east of the airfield through daybreak. 
Anticipate lower stratus filling in in the moist boundary layer 
along with drying aloft from the passing shortwave by daybreak. The 
resulting MVFR to IFR clouds could be quite persistent through the 
morning hours before scattering early this afternoon. Expect light 
NE surface winds through the period with weak surface high pressure 
to the north. 


Elsewhere...any lingering early morning showers will impact mainly 
kavl to khky through 09z before pulling north. Middle and upper level 
drying behind the passing upper wave will promote low stratus 
development in the moist boundary layer through daybreak. The 
stratus may be quite persistent through the morning hours...with 
little scattering before noon. Any isolated to scattered ridge top weak 
convection this afternoon will be too sparse to mention at any of the taf 
sites yet. Expect mainly light NE flow at the foothill sites...with 
winds becoming southeast at kavl through the afternoon. 


Outlook...a plume of Gulf and Atlantic moisture will continue to 
wrap up along the southeast coast...generally just southeast of the 
terminal forecast area...through the week. Restrictions are possible 
during periods of any scattered showers or thunderstorms. In 
addition...low clouds and fog may develop each night...especially in 
the mountain valleys.
