NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1255 PM EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move off the eastern Seaboard tonight as a cold 
front and upper level disturbance approach from the west. The cold 
front will cross the area on Friday...with dry high pressure 
returning through the weekend. A wet and possibly stormy pattern 
will set up Monday through Wednesday...followed by cooler weather. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1700 UTC update...sky cover was updated from visible satellite 
imagery. Winds were updated with a blend of the latest NAM and 
adjmav. 


At 1015 EST Thursday...a low amplitude upper ridge extended from the 
Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes...with troughs off the East Coast 
and over the Great Plains. A stationary front was located along the 
Gulf Coast...and a cold front over the plain. 


Surface high pressure was located along the eastern Seaboard...and 
is projected to push off the coast this afternoon. Satellite imagery 
showed a clear sky over NE Georgia and the western Carolinas. Model time 
heights suggest a slight increase in clouds cover as winds veer to 
the southeast and low level moisture starts to increase...but no 
precipitation is expected. 


High res models generally agree that organized convection associated 
with the approaching cold front will make a run a the NC mountains 
overnight. The storms look to take on a linear Mode...but lose steam 
as they cross eastern tenn during the wee morning hours. The day 1 
convective outlook from Storm Prediction Center does show a slight risk to our west...with 
general thunder risk from central Tennessee to the NC mountains I will keep 
some probability of precipitation creeping into the western zones late tonight...with the expected 
arrival of at least weakened showers to the smokies before daybreak 
Friday. Otherwise...expect an increase in clouds...and temperatures only 
dropping into the 50s most places. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Sunday/... 
as of 300 am EDT Thursday...a deamplifying but coherent middle level 
shortwave trough will move quickly east through the western Carolinas on 
Friday. Decaying convection may be in place across the mountains as the 
period begins Friday morning...but additional shower and thunderstorm 
development is likely across the foothills and Piedmont through middle 
afternoon prior to frontal passage. The best instability should line up over 
southeast Piedmont sections Friday afternoon...with 0 to 3 km bulk shear values 
around 30 knots. This might be just enough for thunderstorm 
organization...but probably not enough for a significant severe weather 
threat. Scattered showers may linger across the western mountains into early 
Friday evening in brief moist upslope flow. 


Upper level ridging will then build over the eastern Continental U.S. And 
strengthen through the weekend. There seems to be slightly better 
consensus on an approaching back door cold front stalling north of the 
region over Virginia through Sunday. Despite the weak frontal passage on Friday...maxes 
will be higher Sat and Sunday in better insolation. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 300 am EDT Thursday...a deep low pressure system over the Central 
Plains by the end of the weekend will gradually fill as it wobbles 
eastward toward the Midwest Monday through Wednesday. The downstream ridge axis 
will move to the eastern Seaboard Sunday night...with heights falling 
through the remainder of the long term period. Gradually building SW 
flow and bands of moisture and lift ejecting eastward from the deep 
vortex will be hard to time through the period. The best moisture 
and upper support should lean toward the Tuesday through Wednesday period as a 
better upper jet structure east of the closed system will likely be 
in place near the Appalachians. Periods of heavy rain will be 
possible at some point...probably Tuesday or Wednesday...but that timing 
cannot be pinned down yet. Expect slightly above normal temperatures on 
Monday...near climatology Tuesday...and lower than normal maxes by Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
kclt...winds will veer southeast soon...staying there until Friday morning 
when the veer the east. MVFR ceiling arrives after midnight as low level 
moisture increases ahead of a cold front...then IFR before daybreak. 
Guidance does not support a visibility restriction. MVFR returns after 
daybreak. The best bet for thunderstorms appears to be toward midday 
with better instability. 


Elsewhere...clouds over will be slow to increase...by after midnight 
guidance suggests MVFR ceilings as moisture increases ahead of an 
approaching cold front...falling to IFR before dawn. Ceilings return to 
MVFR after daybreak. Guidance is not supportive of fog based visibility 
restricitons. Although a wide window for precipitation will exist 
from daybreak on...the best bet is later in the morning with better 
instability. Winds will veer southeast this afternoon...and south-southwest early 
Friday. 


Outlook...a cold front with potential for showers/thunderstorms is expected 
to cross the region Friday. Then dry high pressure returns Saturday through 
Sunday. Increased moisture returns to the region early next week.
