NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Raleigh NC 
720 PM EDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Synopsis...an upper level disturbance over the southeast will lift 
northeast across our region late tonight and Monday. Another 
disturbance will approach from the southwest early Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 323 PM Sunday... 


Weak high pressure remains across the area. The main player in our 
weather later today and tomorrow... an upper level low pressure 
system... can be clearly seen on water vapor lifting northward into 
Georgia. Ahead of this system... high clouds have overtaken area... with 
the exception of the far NE part of the state. Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis 
shows precipitable waters  have increased to near 1.5 inches across the area... with 
2 inches pushing well into SC. Along with this push of moisture.... 
showers are approaching the NC SC border. Have brought likely probability of precipitation 
to the counties near the SC border after 20z. 


The upper low will continue to move northward along the 
Appalachians...weakening into an open wave. With the main middle/upper 
level forcing not reaching the area until after 00z... bulk of the 
shower activity will hold off until late in the evening/overnight. 
Lows in the middle to upper 60s. 


&& 


Short term /Monday and Monday night/... 
as of 324 PM Sunday... 


Upper level wave will lift out Monday... as western Atlantic ridge 
pushes into the area. Deep moisture remains in place... and will 
support chance of showers/thunderstorms through the day. Shower 
threat should briefly diminish overnight... as the tropical moisture 
plume shifts offshore. Considerable cloudiness will remain through 
the day... and temperatures will be in the middle 80s. Lows in the upper 60s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
as of 300 PM Sunday... 


Ridging will build over the southeast and then eventually over the 
deep south through the middle part of next week. The next middle level 
trough (extending from the lower Great Lakes to the northwestern 
Gulf coast) will come into the picture Wednesday/Wednesday night. 
Models are in general agreement that the southern portion of this 
trough will become closed off near the northwestern Gulf...while a 
northern portion will shift across our area towards the latter half 
of the week (possibly becoming cut off along the middle Atlantic 
coast). Although many of the details are still uncertain...despite 
weak flow aloft and little in the way of forcing (aside from the 
aforementioned shortwave trough and any weak perturbations in the 
northwesterly flow aloft)...sufficient moisture will be present for 
scattered (mostly diurnal in nature) showers and thunderstorms each 
day. Temperatures will near to slightly above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Monday through Friday/... 
as of 720 PM Sunday... 


The middle/upper low over northern Georgia will move NE across the region 
through Monday morning. An influx of deep moisture should flow into 
at least the eastern sections of our region (kfay/krdu/krwi) 
bringing LIFR to IFR ceilings/visibilities with numerous showers and fog later 
tonight into Monday morning. As the system shifts away Monday 
afternoon... ceilings/visibilities will improve to MVFR then VFR by late in the 
day. To the west... confidence is low on the rain forecast as much 
of the deep moisture may stay to the east of kint/kgso. However... 
there is higher confidence in the development of IFR ceilings between 
09z-15z before lifting during Monday afternoon. 


The outlook for Monday night into Tuesday... another chance of 
adverse aviation ceilings/visibilities with showers and fog will arrive with 
the next system from the S-SW. Higher probabilities for lower 
ceilings/visibilities exist in the east from krdu to kfay and krwi eastward. 
Tuesday night through Friday should bring a return to VFR conditions 
with only slight chances of mainly diurnal showers. 


&& 


Rah watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
