NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
251 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool high pressure will remain over the region through the end of 
the work week. Moisture and rain chances increase over the weekend 
and early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
upper low spinning atop the region this afternoon will continue to 
slowly fill and larger scale forcing along it/S east side should 
weaken and shift further toward the eastern Carolinas through 
tonight. Surface ridging will remain nosed southwestward into the County warning forecast area as well 
but with sharpening surface coastal trough...enough back of the flow in 
the lowest levels should lead to diminishing fthl/Piedmont light precipitation 
chances this evening. Enough mixing is likely to limit fog development 
overnight to just the mountain valleys. Unlike across the Piedmont 
today...deeper moisture will be displaced further eastward on 
Wednesday...but a with the model consensus featuring a resurgence of 
Atlantic fetch easterly flow...will plan on spreading shower chances 
back in from east. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
as of 230 PM EDT Tuesday...for Wednesday night and Thursday...a closed 
upper low over the region will open up as it pulls NE while a ridge 
of 500 mb high centered off the southeast coast will slowly retrograde towards 
the Gulf through Thursday. At the surface...latest models continue to agree 
that a developing surface low over the NC coastal plains will lift 
north along the Atlantic coast while a cool air wedge remains in 
place over the forecast area Wednesday night into Thursday. Deep moisture 
wrapping around the low will bring areas of light rain mainly to the 
western NC Piedmont Wednesday night. Hence...have mentioned low end chance 
for rain along and east of the I-77 with a slight chance probability of precipitation over 
the upstate SC and NC mtns/foothills. As the low pulls NE away from 
the regional Thursday...weak isentropic lift atop the surface wedge will 
set up...yielding a slight chance for rain for most locations. 
Temperatures should remain 5-10 degrees below normal 


Thursday night and Friday....an upper ridge of high continues to build over 
the Gulf states while another upper ridge of high amplifies over The 
Rockies and Great Plains...with a closed upper low meandering over 
the central states. At the surface...a broad Canadian high pressure 
centered over the Ohio Valley and Middle Atlantic States will continue 
to ridge SW into the forecast area. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) keeps the 
region mostly dry with little to no quantitative precipitation forecast response given the lack of 
isentropic lift over the region. The NAM is an outlier...showing a 
robust quantitative precipitation forecast response across much of the County Warning Area Thursday night into Friday...as a 
rather strong southeast/S 850 mb jet over the surface wedge provides good 
isentropic lift. In addition...areas of DPVA will move across the 
region aiding in additional lift. However...given the models 
disagreement on this feature...have warranted a slight chance probability of precipitation 
for rain Thursday night. Temperatures will continue to remain 5-10 degrees below 
normal on Friday. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Monday/... 
as of 215 PM Tuesday...the medium range forecast picks up at 00z on 
Saturday with broad upper ridging persisting across most of the 
Continental U.S. And a well defined upper trough digging down over the West 
Coast. The model guidance also indicates that some sort of weak weak 
upper troffing will develop off the Atlantic Seaboard and an 500 mb low 
might be in place over the central or Southern Plains by early Sat. 
Because the upper flow will be weak over most of the Continental U.S....it is 
difficult to know exactly where the above features will develop and 
how long they could persist. At any rate...over the next couple of 
days the persistent upper ridge will begin to flatten over southeast Canada 
as the West Coast trough slowly drifts eastward. At the same 
time...the models suggest that the closed low mentioned above will 
amplify and develop into some sort of southern stream trough that 
approaches the forecast area by early next week. Overall...the evolution 
of this upper pattern remains pretty unclear beyond sun or or. 


At the surface...high pressure will be centered to our north with cool 
northeasterly low level flow persisting over the forecast area. Over the next 
couple days the models keep the high nearly stationary and weaken it 
on sun. By early Monday...the European model (ecmwf) still tries to spin up a low over 
the northern gom/southern miss River Valley and move it northward 
through new day 7. The latest 12z GFS tries to develop something over 
the same area...but is not quite able to. Both models do move a 
broad area of deep layer moisture up from the Gulf and into our forecast 
area by the end of the medium range. As for the sensible forecast...I 
kept Sat dry with probability of precipitation increasing from SW to NE on sun and Monday. By 
Monday afternoon...I have a solid chance over most of the County warning forecast area and that 
solid chance remains through the rest of the period. Temperatures were changed 
little from the previous forecast with highs in the upper 70s each day 
and lows warming a bit from the upper 50s to low 60s by new day 7. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...ongoing threat of showers within the moderate east-northeast flow 
will remain for the balance of the afternoon as will at least occasional 
lvfr ceilings. With drying through a deeper layer expected tonight... 
more in the way of spotty strato/altocu should be seen with enough 
NE wind to prevent any visibility restrictions. 


Elsewhere...a smattering of MVFR/lvfr ceilings across the County warning forecast area this 
afternoon should be able to slowly lift as the afternoon wears 
before giving way to substantial clearing tonight. Fog development 
is expected to be limited to the mountain valleys. 


Outlook...high pressure building north of the region should keep 
conditions mostly VFR...but easterly flow Atlantic moisture could 
encroach on the region at times Wednesday through the weekend.
