NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
707 am EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool high pressure will remain over the region through middle week. 
Moisture and rain chances increase into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 655 am EDT...water vapor satellite imagery continues to 
feature a closed middle level circulation near the central Savannah 
River area at daybreak this morning. Moisture is indicated wrapping 
wrapping north and west of this feature...spreading clouds back into 
the southern Appalachians...but with isolated showers or light rain still 
confined to the lower Piedmont east of Interstate 77 where moisture 
is a bit deeper. Deep layer qg forcing will be best from kclt S and 
east through the morning hours...then gradually slip eastward through the 
day. The clouds should keep a lid on afternoon maximum temperatures...with values 
generally 5 to 10 degrees below climatology in most areas. 


The 500 mb low center will likely remain over the central Carolinas 
through tonight...however...low pressure development at lower levels 
still appears focused mainly on the formation of a coastal trough. 
That is where the best moisture and greatest baroclinicity should 
set up...allowing probability of precipitation to taper off in western Piedmont areas tonight. 
Mins have been adjusted up a bit given the deeper layer easterly 
flow around the low and associated Atlantic moisture intruding west 
toward the Blue Ridge. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
at 230 am EDT Tuesday...on Wednesday morning a closed upper low will 
be over SC...with weak ridging to its north over the NE USA...and a 
week trough over the northern plains. The upper low lift north into 
PA by Thursday morning...while the trough upstream drifts east 
toward the Great Lakes. On Thursday night the NAM brings the upper 
low southeast to Chesapeake Bay...and has an upper ridge from the Great 
Lakes to the Gulf states...while the GFS upper low is absorbed by a 
trough off the New England coast...and has its upper ridge still 
over the northern plains. 


At the surface...a stationary front will be off the Carolina and Georgia 
coasts on Wednesday morning...with some amount of low to middle level 
moisture extending inland to the mountains on an east northeast flow 
off the Atlantic. This setup will support at least small probability of precipitation in 
limited upslope flow. As a surface wave moves up the coastal front 
late on Thursday...low level flow backs to the northeast...reducing 
the upslope component. 


Maximum temperatures will run below normal...while minimum 
temperatures warm to near normal...as cloud cover limits heating 
and cooling. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
at 230 am EDT Tuesday...on Friday morning and upper ridge will 
extend from the SW USA to the northern plains...with a weak upper 
trough downstream over the East Coast...and another ridge from Florida to 
Bermuda. By Saturday the norther ridge reaches the Great Lakes and 
the East Coast trough weakens further. On Sunday the GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
diverge...with the GFS having a weak upper ridge over the East 
Coast...and the European model (ecmwf) having a weak upper low near the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia 
peninsula. On Monday the GFS ridge is gone...the European model (ecmwf) low has 
filled and the remaining trough has moved offshore...and both models 
have an upper low over the middle MS River Valley. 


At the surface...Friday will see high pressure centered over 
southern Ontario...and extending from New England and the Great 
Lakes south to the Gulf states. A stationary front off the Carolina 
and Georgia coasts will extend to the northern Gulf of Mexico. The models 
disagree on the western extent of moisture associated with the front 
and possible waves along it...with the European model (ecmwf) bringing moisture much 
farther inland than the GFS. Probability of precipitation would be more likely along the 
Interstate 77 corridor than over the foothills or mountains...but 
even the GFS has a drying trend over the weekend as the front starts 
to make a slow southeast push. 


On Sunday night and Monday...a surface wave on the western portion 
of the front in the central Gulf begins moving north into the lower 
MS River Valley. Moist isentropic upglide over this boundary will 
spread north over the upper Savannah River valley by late 
Monday...supporting precipiation. 


Temperatures will exhibit a slightly reduced diurnal trend due to 
cloud cover. 


&& 


Aviation /11z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...moisture wrapping northward through central SC around the 500 mb 
cutoff low over the central Savannah River area will send isolated to 
scattered light rain showers toward kclt throughout the day. 
Coverage should be spotty enough that vcsh can be used. VFR ceilings 
will be persistent through the period...with some broken to ovc050 
possible at times as the showers get closer and better Atlantic 
moisture wraps westward from the coast. Winds will remain locked in 
from the NE...but low end gust potential will exist with shallow 
mixing today. Some drying is indicated in profiles tonight...but 
with continued altocumulus ceilings aloft as the closed low spins over 
the region. 


Elsewhere...profiles remain drier across the foothills and mountains than 
indicated at kclt...and rain showers chances are very minimal. VFR clouds 
are expected to increase around the 500 mb cutoff low today and then 
slowly decrease at the SC sites tonight as the deeper moisture pulls 
back east. Most locations will see at least a period of lowering VFR 
stratocumulus at some point today. Expect steady NE flow of 10 knots or 
less at the foothill sites...with primarily north to northwest winds at kavl. 


Outlook...high pressure building north of the region should keep 
conditions mostly VFR...but easterly flow Atlantic moisture could 
encroach on the region at times Wednesday through the weekend.
