Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 643 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024

High pressure atop the region will suppress any storms from developing this week until moisture returns on Saturday. A heat wave gets underway on Friday and remains hot through the weekend.
A weak cold front approaches from the north early next week.

As of 6:15 AM EDT Wednesday: A very broad area of bkn high clouds continues to stream overhead from the north this morning. We're also seeing some sct stratocu in the 2000 to 4000 ft range over our western zones. Winds remain light to calm at most sites with some reduced visby being reported in the fog-prone mtn valleys.
The visibility at KAVL has improved to 10 sm over the past hour or so, but they are still reporting a 2000 ft ceiling.

Otherwise, broad upper ridging will remain centered over the mid-Atlantic states and help keep the atmosphere suppressed thru the near-term period. At the sfc, sprawling high pressure will continue to dominate much of the Atlantic basin and keep relatively dry, ELY low-level flow over the Carolinas today.
This will help support a relatively low theta-E airmass beneath warm mid-level temps. Diurnal instability should be very limited thru the period, with no significant amounts of sfc-based CAPE expected to materialize over our area. Thus, PoPs remain below 10% across our CWA thru the period. Highs today should be similar to yesterday (Tuesday) and very close to climatology.

As of 1205 AM EDT Wednesday: The cwfa is still expecting to be within the southern periphery of strong 597 dm ridge centered over the mid-atlantic to start off the period. Large scale subsidence will result in another capped day on Thursday with the llvl easterly flow tempering potential warming, so that maxes top out close to climo. On Friday, the magnitude of the upper anticyclone will begin to diminish as it's axis drifts south to orient itself atop the Carolinas, but effectively, will continue to suppress any deep convective development. With the attendant sfc hipres center sinking southward as well, the llvl flow picks up a southerly component, aiding to boost maximum temperatures to above normal levels. High temperatures on Friday are still slated to range from the lower 90s east of the mountains or about 2-4 degrees above normal, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 for the mainstem mountain valleys.

As of 130 AM EDT Wednesday: Upper ridging lingering atop the region at the start of the period is still progged to give way to weak cyclonic flow aloft in response to height falls across the Midwest and Ohio Valley. As larger scale suppression wanes, isolated, diurnal, terrain aided storms are possible in the mountains on Saturday before a return to climatological deep conective chances cwfawide on Sunday. Perhaps the more notable weekend feature will be the prominent llvl thermal ridge which should lead to piedmont maximums in the middle 90s each day, and with an uptick in sfc dwpts, heat index values could be around 100 in spots on Sunday. The medium range model consensus lingers/reasserts the 100-85H thickness ridge atop the region thru the end of the period, so expect little to no relief to the heat through at least Tuesday.

At KCLT and elsewhere: Expect VFR conditions to continue thru the 12z taf period at all terminals. Sct to bkn high clouds will persist over the area thru the morning, with few to sct cumulus expected again this aftn/evening. KAVL is currently observing MVFR cigs, but I expect they will sct out by 14z or so. Winds will be light thru the morning and pick up from the E this aftn and remain ELY thru the evening with a few low-end gusts possible during the aftn/early evening. Winds will go light to calm again later tonight. At KAVL, winds will remain calm thru most of the morning and then pick up from the SE by the early aftn with some low-end gusts possible.

Outlook: An expansive upper ridge will keep things mostly dry with VFR conditions thru Fri. Mtn valley fog and/or low stratus will be possible each morning. Diurnal convection could return over the weekend.
