NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
721 am EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
drier high pressure will linger over the region through Thursday. A 
strong cold front will then arrive from the northwest on Friday and 
move offshore by early Saturday. In the fronts wake...a cool and dry 
airmass will move back over the southeast and remain in place over 
the weekend. Another cold front will approach the southern 
appalachian region from the northwest on Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 630 am...a few patches of fog across the Piedmont...but the 
visibility trend has been upward over the last bit...even in the mountain 
valleys. The fog should dissipate quickly an hour or two after 
sunrise. 


The next 24 hours should be relatively quiet across the western 
Carolinas and northeast Georgia. An upper ridge will build overhead 
today and then the axis of the ridge will move eastward tonight as 
an upper low along the New England coast moves farther offshore. The 
ridge will support weak high pressure at the surface...and a fairly 
substantive subsidence inversion. The NAM in particular develops 
widely scattered showers this afternoon on the Blue Ridge and moves 
them east this evening...as the cap is broken over parts of the 
Piedmont. This seems unlikely and suspect the NAM surface dewpoints are too 
high as usual. Think the GFS/European model (ecmwf) have the right idea that the cap 
will be far too strong and that it will remain dry. Have removed all 
mention of showers for that reason. Temperatures should be a degree or two 
warmer than Tuesday. High pressure remains in control tonight with 
patchy fog possible again around daybreak Wednesday. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 3 am Wednesday...on Thursday...a ridge of surface high pressure 
will remain across the region...under the axis of a 500 mb ridge. 850 mb 
temperatures are forecast to range from 16c across the mountains to 15c across 
the Piedmont. The combination of mild low level thicknesses and plentiful 
insolation should support high temperatures near 80 within the mountain 
valleys to middle 80s across the Piedmont. Forecast soundings indicate 
that a significant h65 inversion will linger through Thursday. A 
layer low level cin should remain through the day...capping surface based 
parcels. 


On Friday...a deep middle level closed low will track SW across the 
northern plains and western Great Lake region. South of the 
low...the axis of the middle level trough will dig east across the 
southeast region. At the surface...a strong cold front will push from 
middle Tennessee 12z Friday to the Carolina coast by 12z Saturday. Middle and 
upper level forcing will increase as a short wave and band of jet 
divergence crosses the southern Appalachians after 12z Saturday. The 
low level environment will feature convective available potential energy between 1000-1500 j/kg with 
helicity values between 50-100 m2/s2. This environment should 
support the daytime passage of a pre frontal band of convection 
across the high terrain. I will increase probability of precipitation to cate to high likely 
across the County Warning Area...especially Friday afternoon. Given the 
environment...it is possible that well organized qlcs could develop 
Friday afternoon or evening. However...the possibility of severe weather 
appears too limited to highlight in this mornings severe weather potential statement. Temperatures 
will be limited by thick clouds and rainfall...highs should remain 
around 5 degrees below normal. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 am Wednesday...on Saturday...strong 850 mb cold air advection will occur 
across the region...falling from 10c over avl at 6z to 3c by 12z. 
Low temperatures are forecast to range from the middle 40s across the 
high terrain to the middle 50s across the Piedmont. High temperatures 
will likely range 5 to 8 degrees below normal. Sunday should see the 
coolest temperatures of the period. The center surface high pressure is 
forecast to reach the Alabama/Georgia line by 12z Sunday. Conditions across 
the region will feature dry...calm...and limited sky cover. In 
addition...cold air advection may push 850 mb temperatures across the northern mountains from 0c to 
-1.5c. Sunday morning...mins in the middle 30s should be common across 
mountain ridges. Elsewhere....values are forecast to range in the middle to 
u40s. 


Early next week...the center of high pressure will push off the 
Carolina coast as another cold front approaches from the west. This 
pattern should advect warmer temperatures and moisture across the 
southern appalachian region. Temperatures will modify through the 
late extended period...return to near normal by Tuesday. In 
addition...I will mention developing widely scattered showers across 
the County Warning Area on Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...fog was noted across parts of the NC Piedmont as of 
issuance time...think that MVFR visibility will surround kclt and 
will probably be IFR/LIFR at outlying spots. However...think kclt 
will see at worst a brief MVFR visibility...but confidence too low 
to put in taf. The fog should burn off quickly once again. From 
middle morning Onward...expect few/scattered stratocu with bases around 050 
and a light S/SW wind. Kept those conditions through the end of 
the current period. 


Elsewhere...similar conditions as kclt...especially kgsp/kgmu. Kavl will 
see an upvalley wind during the morning and into the afternoon... 
becoming downvalley in the late afternoon and evening. Expect some 
Mountain Valley fog yet again early Thursday morning. 


Outlook...VFR still expected Thursday. A front will approach on 
Friday which could trigger some showers and thunderstorms...with 
associated restrictions possible...as it moves across the region 
Friday afternoon and night. VFR returns on Saturday through the rest 
of the weekend. 


Confidence table... 


11-17z 17-23z 23-05z 05-11z 
kclt high 99% high 100% high 100% high 100%
