NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
815 PM EDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
a ridge of high pressure will remain wedged across the area through 
the weekend. To the east...a front will remain nearly stationary 
along the coast. Atlantic moisture will continue to spread into the 
area which will fuel widespread showers and thunderstorms. Some 
locally heavy rainfall is likely. Conditions are expected to return to 
more typical late Summer weather by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
730 PM update...band of rainfall is now oriented along the I-85 
corridor with the heaviest activity set to move into metropolitan Charlotte 
over the next hour. Guidance continues to indicate this activity 
will diminish to some degree as it progresses further onto the north 
side of the subtle boundary over which it developed...similar to a 
wedge boundary. However as NESDIS Sat analysis branch pointed out 
earlier in a precipitation discussion for our area...the shortwave now over 
Alabama is likely to initiate widespread showers as it moves into 
our area later tonight. Anchored convection along a boundary over Georgia 
seems to have developed as a result of the wave moving overhead. 
This is what NESDIS expects will happen over the Carolinas. The warm 
upglide flow over the boundary still is forecast to strengthen early 
Friday...perhaps also in response to the wave. 


As a result...hit probability of precipitation fairly hard over the NC Piedmont and eastern 
upstate to account for the band now moving in...then as it begins to 
weaken probability of precipitation ramp up again from the west ahead of the wave. Upsloping 
into the Blue Ridge is still expected to be a major factor overnight 
so it is still highlighted in the distribution of probability of precipitation. 


As of 210 PM EDT...a positively tilted upper trough will remain from 
eastern Canada to the Gulf Coast today and tonight. A shortwave 
trough rounding the base of this trough will cross the southern 
Appalachians tonight...and the foothills and Piedmont on Friday. Low 
level upslope flow is shown to increase in model time heights... 
with isentropic upglide increasing as well. 


The combination of these ingredients will support heavy 
rainfall...especially late tonight and early Friday. The greatest 
rainfall potential will be along and near the Blue Ridge. With 
robust antecedent rainfall on the SC foothills...that area will be 
especially vulnerable to flooding. The Flash Flood Watch form areas 
west of the Interstate 77 corridor will remain in place through 
Friday morning. 


Instability will be sufficient for convection...mainly during 
maximum daytime heating each afternoon. Model soundings indicate 
that there may be a brief peak of elevated instability late tonight 
as the shortwave moves overhead. This overnight peak appears to 
coincide with some low level shear...but the two indices do not 
appear to overlap in height. The diurnal temperature range will be 
limited by moisture and clouds cover. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
at 2 PM EDT Thursday...the wet pattern will continue through the 
weekend. An upper trough will remain west of the Appalachians which 
will send a series of impulses through the area. At the surface... 
an oscillating quasi-stationary front will remain just east of the 
area as waves of low pressure ripple NE along it. Also...isentropic 
lift will continue over a wedge boundary located along the east 
slopes of the mountain chain. There may be a lull/down tick in 
coverage of rain early Saturday east of the mountains as a wave of 
low pressure induces the front to move eastward somewhat. However... 
guidance probability of precipitation remain high so expect that areas of rain/drizzle will 
remain and upslope flow in the mountains will continue to produce 
even more widespread shower coverage there. Another wave on the 
front is likely to develop by Sun morning over eastern SC which will 
produce increased isentropic upglide and more widespread showers Sat 
night through sun. Precipitable waters will remain elevated through the period...so 
areas of heavy rainfall are a good bet. Rainfall in the 1-2 inch 
range is likely most places....with locally heavier amounts. Maximum 
temperatures will remain well below normal. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 145 PM Thursday...the upper air pattern will gradually 
transition from a trough west of the Appalachians to a zonal flow 
over the region. This will occur when early in the new work week the 
northern part of the upper trough is forecast to slide east of the 
area leaving a weak upper low over the Tennessee Valley which moves slowly 
SW into the lower MS valley by midweek. That will allow zonal flow 
to develop which will produce a dryer airmass over the forecast area 
by midweek. At the surface...the weak front will remain near the coast 
with a wave of low pressure over the eastern Carolinas which will 
track NE into the middle-Atlantic region on Monday. As the low moves 
away...weak high pressure will develop over the southern 
Appalachians. 


Therefore...the sensible weather will feature some lingering showers 
early in the period...but in general the weather should return to a 
more normal summertime pattern. Temperatures will rebound to near 
normal by midweek with mainly just widely scattered afternoon 
convection over the mountains Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...band of moderate to heavy rainfall will slowly move northward 
across the field this evening. Periods of MVFR to IFR visibility will 
accompany the heavier showers...and a rumble of thunder cannot be 
ruled out. There may be a lull in precipitation coverage in the very late 
evening. Precipitation activity picks up again in the early morning as lift 
from moist southeasterly flow aloft is enhanced by a passing shortwave. 
Elevated instability is prognosticated by guidance so better thunder 
chances will come then. With the prolonged rain this evening and the 
warm advection continuing just above the surface...IFR ceilings are a good 
bet overnight. Some fog likely as well but the ceilings will be more 
restrictive. The pattern changes so little into Friday that improvement 
in category will be slow and MVFR will prevail through the afternoon. 
Thunder returns with diurnal instability in the afternoon. NE winds are 
expected to prevail during the period though southeasterly gusts may occur 
during the evening rain showers. 


Elsewhere...numerous areas of rain will progress northward through the NC 
Piedmont early this evening...with more scattered activity further 
west. A shortwave will move across overnight which is expected to enhance 
lift from low level warm upglide...so an uptick in coverage is in the 
forecast overnight. Profiles become more favorable for thunder toward 
dawn so thunderstorms in the vicinity is added at that time. IFR ceilings should develop at all 
sites with IFR fog accompanying it in places. Improvement to MVFR 
should occur later than usual given the moist...wedge-like setup 
over the area. Most sites will remain MVFR through the end of the day. 


Outlook...moisture will continue to increase through Friday as moist 
southerly flow continues into the region over a stalled frontal 
boundary. Unsettled weather with enhanced precipitation chances 
along with morning fog/stratus are expected through the weekend.
