NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
246 PM EST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure atop the region through Saturday will give 
way to a very moist southerly flow on Sunday. Drier and less mild 
air will then overspread the area in the wake of a cold front by 
Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
as of 200 PM EST Friday...a weak upper ridge axis will cross the 
region tonight and off the Atlantic coast by Sat morning. Nearly 
zonal upper flow becomes southwesterly by Sat evening in response to an 
approaching southern stream upper shortwave from the Southern 
Plains. This will allow cp surface high centered over the central 
Appalachians to slide southeastward into the Carolinas coastal 
plains by Sat morning...and off the coast by late Sat 
afternoon/evening. As for our sensible weather...we will see 
continued dry conditions tonight through Sat under the surface 
ridge. High clouds will overspread the region from the southwest by 
tomorrow afternoon as a surface low pressure system approaches from 
the Southern Plains. Temperatures will continue to run 7-10 degrees 
below normal. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
as of 215 PM Friday...some mixed signals as to the severe weather 
potential east of the mountains on Sunday/Sunday night...which is the 
main focus of the short range period. On the one hand...the 12z runs 
of the GFS and NAM show the vorticity center associated with the 
negatively tilted short wave lifting NE on a track that is further east 
than previous runs. It has been my experience that our best severe 
weather potential in high shear Low Cape scenarios tends to happen 
with a stronger...more advective short wave tracking farther S so as 
to provide some strong synoptic scale organization that favors 
linear convection. The trend in the GFS/NAM suggests this might be 
more of a possibility...although the 12z run of the European model (ecmwf) has this 
feature still moving on a track well to our northwest. On the other hand... 
all the models agree that our potential Low Cape environment has 
even less potential on Sunday afternoon/eve...now with none of the 
solutions bringing a coastal front/wedge boundary far enough inland 
so as to bring the weak cape into the S/southeast fringe of the forecast area. 
That will not support severe potential. So...as it stands now...it 
looks like a situation where we will have a highly sheared 
environment and we will be geared up for severe potential...that 
will remain unrealized for lack of bouyancy and organization. I 
would suggest keeping an eye on this...particularly if future model 
trends suggest stronger forcing or better low level advection that 
could bring weak bouyancy into the region. Will not mention severe 
potential in the severe weather potential statement for now. The models also continue to keep the 
deeper convection and precipitation rates along the coastal front through 
Sunday evening. Present thinking is that everyone will get a decent 
rain...but with dry antecedent conditions and lower rates... flood 
potential looks too low to mention for the time being. Expect some 
strong winds at ridgetops Sunday and Sunday evening...but it is too 
early to mention possible advisory level winds at ridgetops as well. 
That leaves US for the time being with a decent rain event. Warm 
advection should raise temperatures high enough before precipitation onset that 
only rain is included in the forecast. The models show a trend toward 
delaying the onset until closer to 06z on the SC Blue Ridge...with 
precipitation potential increasing/emanating from there. If this timing 
slips further...with onset more toward daybreak Sunday...we could 
have a situation with trapped cold air in the mountain valleys that could 
provide for some p-type issues at onset...so keep that in mind as 
well. The timing on the back end has slipped as well...so the very 
high pop was kept longer into the Sunday night time frame across a 
larger area. The bulk of the precipitation should leave to the NE by 
sunrise Monday. The upper trough will remain well to the west and the 
in situ wedge should be destroyed by then...which means that Monday 
could be relatively warm with high temperatures making it into the lower 
70s across the Piedmont. This might lead to some instability by the 
afternoon while we retain some strong but unidirectional shear. Have 
kept a chance pop across the region with a small chance of thunder 
mainly over the area S/east of I-85. A lack of a trigger may prevent 
much from happening as there is little forcing seen in the model 
guidance. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Thursday/... 
as of 340 PM Friday...on Tuesday...both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) indicate 
that the forecast area will remain on the east side of middle level l/west 
trough. A dry slot is expected to increase through the daylight hours 
across the southern appalachian region. I will forecast dry 
conditions...with clouds beginning to increase from the west during 
the early evening. Temperatures are forecast to range from 3 to 5 
degrees below normal. 


On Wednesday...model agreement across the region remains fairly 
close. By 12z Wednesday...the center of a coastal low is expected to push 
off the coast of the Carolinas. The western edge of the associated 
cloud shield and model quantitative precipitation forecast spread across the clt metropolitan area Wednesday 
am...reaching the NC foothills during the afternoon. I will forecast 
chance to schc probability of precipitation for rain...a few patches of snow is possible across the 
high terrain. Temperatures should cool to 10 degrees below normal. 


Wednesday night into Thanksgiving...both models have wavered in 
previous runs with the potential passage of a sharp middle level 
trough. However...the 12z runs has yielded fairly close agreement. 
Based on the guidance it appears that significant forcing and 
moisture will dive across the region Wednesday night...remaining 
well into Thanksgiving day. Given the current model agreement...I 
will increase probability of precipitation across the mountains into NE Georgia. However...provided 
the uncertain evolution of this energy...I will keep probability of precipitation lower than 
schc east. During the morning...precipitation should be associated with the 
approach of the middle level vorticity...during the day...cool and moist nwf 
should support upslope showers along the Tennessee line. I will mention 
both snow and rain for precipitation types. Thanksgiving lows are forecast to 
range from the 20s across the mountains to low 30s east. High 
temperatures should range from the 40s across the mountains to around 50 
east. 


On Friday...the closed middle level low should begin to track northeast 
off the middle Atlantic coast. Lingering nwfs may continue across the 
mountains into Friday morning. Otherwise...conditions will remain dry to 
the east. Temperatures are forecast to range 10 to 15 degrees below 
normal. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Friday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will persist through 18z Sat 
for most locations. North/NE winds this afternoon will veer to the east/east-southeast 
by this evening...and to the southeast by Sat morning as dry high pressure 
centered over the middle Atlantic sates gradually migrates off the East 
Coast. The exception will be at kavl where northerly winds will 
become southerly by this evening and stay that way through the taf 
period. We should see mostly clear skies tonight with increasing 
high cloudiness expected by Sat morning in light of moist southwesterly flow 
aloft setting up over the region. 


Outlook...dry high pressure lingers into Saturday. Clouds and 
precipitation return to the area on Sunday with another front...and 
associated restrictions are possible. Brief drying follows the front 
on Monday.

Fire weather... 
given the dry airmass and abundant insolation today...dewpoints may 
locally mix out appreciably. Given forecast temperatures this could result 
in isolated areas seeing relative humidity dip below 20 percent. Winds will be 
pretty light so major fire weather concerns are not anticipated. This 
also in light of fuel moistures remaining a couple percent above 
critical levels.
