    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    GSP: Afternoon AFD The concern through the period will be, of course, the amount of moisture across the area. PWs will flirt with and at times exceed record levels off and on through the period as surges of moisture spread overhead. With the tropical airmass, lapse rates will not be impressive even with the high moisture content and lower LCLs until later in the period, and some low-level shear may enter the mix Friday afternoon into Saturday. Any thunderstorms will of course just enhance convective rainfall rates. 12z GFS is giving storm total QPF (including the near/short term periods) through Monday 12z of 5-6", mostly along the I-85 corridor in GA/SC and then up the escarpment into NC. 00z ECMWF brings a max of over 8" through the same time period, concentrated in the upslope areas of the SW mountains, with widespread 3-4" elsewhere. Hopefully this will be just a good soaking rain, with decent amounts each day but not an overwhelming amount in any one 6-hr period, but as the totals continue to pile up from the short term and into the extended, we will have to monitor this closely.

    Nope. Still snowing lightly..and we are intrigued by that back end wrap around approaching.

    Not to mention that line associated with the upper low seems to be expanding. Tack on another 1-2 in CrownTown then clear out?

    Look at the last two storms for CLT. Two flakes in CLT, crushed to the left of us. Then, two flakes in CLT and crushed to the right of us. I would take a F'ing ZR storm now..and then that went poof. Hey, at least I have frozen pipes in the Master Bathroom...so there's that.

    Wouldn't that insinuate that all layers were saturate to make it to the ground, where the global models are handling incorrectly? Will it make it back to you?
