NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
129 am EDT Monday Apr 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
cool and dry high pressure ridges down from near the Great 
Lakes and be the main influence in our weather through most 
of Tuesday. Another area of low pressure will move east from 
Texas in middle week giving our region a cool rain. A drying 
trend returns for the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 130 am...no significant changes to the near term forecast at 
this time. Biggest adjustment was to increase cloud cover across the 
area over the next couple of hours...but continued trend of 
dissipating cloud cover through the morning. 


As of 930 PM...a boundary continues to work its way south and west 
across the upstate of South Carolina and NE Georgia. This will 
require some re-shuffling of the temperature/dewpt grids to account for 
places where the front was supposed to have passed already. Widely 
scattered showers near the boundary should pass south of the clt 
metropolitan area and should dissipate during the late evening. 


Previous discussion... 


At 230 PM EDT...an upper low was located near Nova Scotia...with 
broad troughing to its south over the middle Atlantic coast...and flat 
upper flow farther south over the Gulf states. A stationary front 
marking the perimeter of a cold air damming wedge extended from the 
Interstate 26 corridor in SC to the NC Blue Ridge. Heating and 
instability this afternoon will be concentrated south of the 
boundary in upstate SC and NE Georgia...with the convective window rather 
brief...either side of sunset. Afternoon temperatures will exhibit a 
marked difference north and south of The Wedge. 


The models suggest a decrease in cloud cover overnight...as The 
Wedge front eventually moves south and out of our area. Northerly 
downslope flow and falling dew points behind the front should keep 
fog from forming overnight. Monday features dry conditions. Below 
normal temperatures are expected tonight and Monday in cold 
advection behind the front. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Wednesday night/... 
as of 155 PM Sunday...model agreement has improved drastically over 
the past 24 hours regarding southern stream upper level low pressure 
wobbling out of the southwest Continental U.S. Early in the period...and its 
subsequent interaction and eventual phasing with the northern 
stream. There are still somewhat small disagreements regarding the 
timing and placement of key synoptic features during mid-week... but 
a strong consensus is evolving that cyclogenesis will be underway 
near the mouth of the miss river Tuesday morning...with resultant 
surface cyclone gradually deepening as it moves east/NE across the 
southeast coastal states before pushing off the Carolina coast by 
Thursday morning. 


The upshot of this pattern will be increasing frontogenetical 
forcing and solid rain chances across our area beginning Tuesday night 
and continuing through Wednesday before tapering off Wednesday night. Temperatures will 
remain below climatology through the period...and in fact will be well 
below climatology on Wednesday...as widespread clouds and possibly rain 
persist through much of the day. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Sunday...the medium range forecast period initializes 
Thursday morning with global models continuing to indicate departing 
surface cyclone sliding up the Carolina coastline beneath a 
positively tilted...nearly full latitude phased trough. Both the 
European model (ecmwf)/GFS indicate a reinforcing shortwave rounding the base of the 
trough axis at forecast initialization that quickly phases with the 
upstream wave supporting the above mentioned atl coastal low by 
early afternoon. The details on evolution of this system remain 
unclear...albeit slightly better than previous runs. Leaned heavily 
on HPC guide which relied on the GFS/gefs/ECMWF ensemble means which 
lend a solution similar to that of previous European model (ecmwf) runs. 
Thus...expecting the coastal low to eject east over the Outer Banks 
into Thursday evening while reinforcing 500 mb shortwave dives sharply 
south from the Great Lakes. Modest northwest flow associated with said 
wave will warrant sustained probability of precipitation through Thursday night with the 
highest of which residing along the upslope favored regions of the 
NC high terrain. 


Further west an upper ridge will build over the central 
Continental U.S....eventually sliding east reinforcing high pressure at the surface 
over the southeast United States through the day on Friday. 
Therefore the forecast dries out for the weekend with mostly sunny skies 
and moderating diurnal temperatures prevailing. Expect temperatures 
to return to...or exceed normal levels by Saturday into Sunday. The 
surface ridge center is prognosticated to shift east on Sunday night 
allowing for modest return flow over the region on Monday. In 
response...dewpoints will rise leading to increasing diurnal 
instability as the warm sector rebuilds. However...expecting deep 
layer ridging to prevail thus leading to a dry forecast. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...expect VFR through the period. Clouds at taf time 
range from scattered to broken 6-8kft and these will clear out through the 
morning as the front continues pushing south. Cannot rule out some 
brief few-scattered 5-6kft cumulus this afternoon. Otherwise just high clouds 
through the period. Only caveat to prevailing VFR conditions remains 
that some guidance...namely the RUC...does still want to develop IFR 
to LIFR fog across the NC Piedmont this morning including at kclt. 
Based on dewpoint depressions and condensation pressure deficit... 
not inclined to believe this outlier solution but cannot rule out 
some patchy MVFR fog. Northwest winds generally through the period but 
picking up to between 5-10kt this afternoon...with potential for a 
brief very low-end gusts. 


Elsewhere...very similar trend to clt. Some MVFR ceilings still hanging 
out across the upstate...but ceilings should lift and begin to scatter 
in the next couple of hours. Generally north-northwest to briefly north-northeast winds 
everywhere between 5-10kt this afternoon...but will probably see 
slightly stronger winds at kavl...10kt or just above with gusting 
potential to 20kt or so. Otherwise just high clouds through the 
period. 


Outlook...dry high pressure will continue through Tuesday. Another 
low pressure system will track across the deep south Wednesday and 
Thursday...with ceiling and visibility restrictions possible.
