NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
308 PM EST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
cool Canadian high pressure will build into the region through 
Tuesday...but moist and milder air should be back on Wednesday out 
ahead an approaching cold front. This front is forecast to pass 
through the area on Thursday...drying US out by Thursday night. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
as of 230 PM...the tardy back door cold front continues to wreak 
havoc upon the temperature forecast this afternoon...with temperatures once 
again running about two categories warmer than forecast as of 19z. Will 
significantly bump temperatures up once more...and adjust to the trend that 
was taken from a super-blend of guidance starting early this 
evening. Not seeing much in the way of precipitation development yet...so 
pop trend was also knocked down. 


What we have over the next 24 hours is another nuisance-type 
situation developing early Tuesday morning...mainly over the northern 
foothills and northern mountains of NC. In the bigger picture...a broad upper 
ridge will build in from the west tonight...with the upper ridge 
axis moving overhead midday on Tuesday. A weak upper wave will top 
the ridge and move through on Tuesday morning. The main problem 
arises when the upper ridge carries a cold dry surface high past to 
the north this evening and then into a position over the middle Atlantic on 
Tuesday morning to support a hybrid cold air damming event. Low 
level moisture return and isentropic upglide commence on the back 
side of the high and over the top of the old back door cold front 
late tonight. Precipitation may develop as early as this evening across the 
Savannah River basin/upstate/srn NC mountains as the upglide begins. Will 
start with a chance pop there and gradually expand/increase the 
pop...favoring the Blue Ridge. As in the previous forecast...there will 
be a sliver or area of temperatures that drop down to something sub- 
freezing mainly near the Blue Ridge north of I-40 after midnight. Precipitation 
amts will be less than one tenth of an inch and probability is 
likely at best...but the precipitation type would be freezing rain/drizzle. 
Think it best to raise a Freezing Rain Advisory for that region for 
late tonight/Tuesday morning. Temperatures will rise above freezing by late 
morning. The rest of area should remain above freezing. Will hold 
onto a likely pop for the balance of Tuesday mainly over the west... 
with a chance over the eastern fringe. Temperatures on Tuesday will seem like 
a cruel joke...nearly 20 degrees colder than today...with a NE wind. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
at 300 PM EST Monday...the short term forecast period initializes 
Tuesday evening amongst weak upper ridging aloft over the 
east...while a trough slides through the northern plains. At the 
surface...a potent cold front will be sliding through the Ohio 
Valley while a modest warm sector establishes itself over the 
southeast aided by southerly flow around western Atlantic surface 
ridge. The forecast initializes with likely probability of precipitation across the mountains due to 
southerly upsloping while Lower Middle range chance probability of precipitation are featured 
further east. Probability of precipitation will decrease through the overnight across the 
eastern tier of the forecast area while solid likely probability of precipitation remain over 
the high terrain into Wednesday. 


Models continue to indicate some destabilization in the warm sector 
across the mountains on Wednesday ahead of the front...thus added mention 
of thunder where needed although no deep organized convection is 
forecast. Outside of the mountains only showers were mentioned. Probability of precipitation will 
gradually increase across the entire region Wednesday night into 
Thursday as the frontal passage occurs leading to solid likely probability of precipitation by early 
morning Thursday. At that point...the primary focus of the period 
becomes wintry weather concerns along the NC mountain zones near the Tennessee 
line. Models indicate a period when thermal profiles yield a 
subfreezing layer near the surface...ahead of the deeper cold 
advection aloft. The NAM being the most aggressive with such would 
yield a prolonged period of freezing rain across The Spine of the 
Apps...before a change over to all snow. The GFS leaned towards a 
faster cold advection pattern...thus a shorter period of freezing rain. 
Opted for the GFS solution...which happened to be much aligned with 
the new European model (ecmwf). Therefore...forecast features a period of freezing rain along the 
Tennessee line on Thursday morning...before a phase change occurs to 
sleet...then all snow. Total snow and ice accumulations remain 
below advisory criteria at this point therefore will not mention in 
severe weather potential statement. Further east along the front...profiles will remain supportive 
of all rain processes with probability of precipitation decreasing into the late afternoon 
hours. Temperatures on Wednesday will be above normal amongst warm air advection 
regime...while below normal temperatures return Post frontal passage on 
Thursday. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 200 PM Monday...surface front will depart the area to the east Thursday 
night as sprawling Canadian high pressure fills in from the northwest. Low level 
profiles along the tenn border indicate a low chance of lingering 
snow showers in northwest flow...but this diminishes quickly. Global models 
now in strong consensus that the high will continue to push the 
frontal boundary to the fla Panhandle. Dry conditions will prevail 
Friday-Sat as a result. Maximum temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below climatology Friday 
before airmass modifies and top out around 5 below climatology Saturday. 
However cool temperatures are reinforced by a second cold front Saturday 
night. While the frontal passage itself appears generally dry except possibly 
along the tenn border...the 02/00z ec and a handful of naefs 
ensemble members suggest a wave could develop along the old 
stationary front over the central Gulf states and lift into the area 
sun or Sun night. Probability of precipitation were allowed to ramp back up from the SW 
beginning Sunday. Temperatures Sun night will be cool enough that a 
rain/snow mix could result over parts of the area. Further 
moderation in temperatures is in store for Monday as skies begin to clear. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Monday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...VFR expected into the middle part of the evening. Think 
low clouds will develop this afternoon with bases in the 035-050 
range...which could bring a temporary ceiling. A west wind at the 
moment is most likely to come around to northwest or north. The situation 
should go downhill this evening as low level moisture returns along 
with isentropic lift above a back door cold front expected to slip 
through from the NE during the early evening. Expect an MVFR ceiling 
to develop no later than 03z...which will eventually lower to IFR as 
light precipitation develops and upglide increases in the pre-dawn hours. 
Winds should be NE from early evening through the end of the taf 
period. There should be some improvement to ceilings...into the 
lower part of MVFR...around middle morning on Tuesday as the boundary 
layer warms. 


Elsewhere...an MVFR ceiling at kavl should break up during the early 
to middle afternoon. After that...the forecast will proceed similar to kclt 
with some minor timing differences. The back door front should drop 
down to the S/SW across the region in the early to middle evening... 
bringing the wind around to the N/NE. Clouds develop in the middle 
evening as the front GOES through...first MVFR and then IFR. A 
concern will be temperatures in the pre-dawn through daybreak hours. At this 
time...it appears that only khky has a chance at any freezing 
rain...and that chance should be small as the main potential is 
actually closer to the Blue Ridge. 


Outlook...low ceilings and light precipitation/drizzle will be likely across 
much of the area in Tuesday afternoon and evening. A cold front will 
move slowly through the region Wednesday through Thursday...bringing 
chances for heavier rainfall to the area. Friday and Saturday look 
VFR.
