NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1245 PM EST sun Mar 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
cold high pressure will persist through today. Moisture will 
increase ahead of an approaching cold front which will cross the 
area on Monday. Canadian high pressure builds back in Tuesday...with 
another moist cold front affecting the region late Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1240 PM EST Sunday...cancelled the remaining advisory zones 
this afternoon due to precipitation exiting this immediate region along 
with above freezing surface temperatures. Otherwise...made some tweaks to 
probability of precipitation along and south of the Interstate 85 corridor as band of rain showers 
slides through the area. Beyond that...forecast looks good in the near 
term with only slight adjustments needed for temps/dews. 


Previous discussion... 


At 300 am EST Sunday...a broad upper trough was over central Canada 
and the upper Midwest this morning...while a closed upper low was 
off the S California coast. Nearly zonal flow extended from north Mexico to the 
Carolina coast. By Monday morning the northern trough progresses to 
eastern Canada....while the upper low remain off California. Slight 
amplification of a ridge takes place between these the features over 
the plains...but the flow over the southeast remains basically zonal. 


At the surface...cold air damming weakens from S to north over the 
Carolinas and north Georgia today...but not before isentropic upglide 
produces precipitation across the area. With the top of the moist 
layer to warm for ice nucleation...and surface temperatures cooling 
below freezing across most of our area...freezing rain can be 
expected across all but our southern most counties. Light rainfall 
amounts will keep this from becoming an ice storm...but the impacts 
will be sufficient for the current Winter Weather Advisory and 
Freezing Rain Advisory to remain in effect...with perhaps some 
modification in the southern tier. Precipitation will change to all 
rain this afternoon...ending the icing. High temperatures will run 
nearly 40 degrees below normal today. 


A cold front will approach from the NE tonight...preceded by only 
light precipitation in an absence of upglide. Precipitation chances 
and amounts will be best in the NC mountains bordering Tennessee where the 
cold front will makes its arrival toward daybreak. Thermal profiles 
support an all rain event. Model guidance suggests minimum 
temperatures as warm or warmer in the mountains than in the foothills 
and Piedmont...with values around 8 degree above normal in the 
former...and around normal in the later. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 315 am...some lingering light precipitation will remain possible 
across the western mountains early Monday...as plenty of moisture remains 
across the southern appalachian/tenn valley region within a west/northwest 
flow. However...profiles will remain quite warm...as baroclinic zone 
becomes increasingly oriented parallel to quasi-zonal flow 
aloft...with the better cold advection passing well north of the 
forecast area. Therefore...any precipitation would be light rain or 
drizzle. The NAM...(and other models to a much lesser extent) has 
been very consistent in developing an area of precipitation across north Georgia 
and the SC Piedmont tomorrow...perhaps associated with convergence 
near terrain blocked-induced surface low and wind shift associated 
with the leading edge of the cold front. Again...the NAM is the 
only model that is overly excited about this...and there is little 
support from the sref for this...but a low probability of precipitation still seems 
warranted in light of the nams consistency. 


Otherwise...Monday should finally see seasonal temperatures across much of 
the upstate and northeast Georgia...while the mountains and northern zones 
will remain cool due to cold advection/developing wedge...as 1030+ 
mb surface high moves quickly across the Ohio Valley...and settles 
near the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia by Tuesday morning. This will result in another very 
cool/cold air damming day on Tuesday...when maximum temperatures in the 40s are 
expected...except perhaps across the far western mountains and the lower 
Piedmont. Meanwhile...upglide precipitation chances will increase again Monday 
night into early Tuesday...as large scale warm air advection regime develops in 
response to a developing plains cyclone. There could be another 
round of freezing rain Tuesday morning...although this would be confined 
to a very small area...primarily the eastern Escarpment region of 
North Carolina. 


Light precipitation chances will persist into Tuesday night...especially across the 
mountains and the northern zones...as the middle-levels will begin to dry 
and The Wedge begin to erode across southern areas. Meanwhile... 
strong frontogenesis is expected to develop Tuesday night/early Wednesday 
across the tenn and Ohio Valley region...but heavier precipitation 
associated with this is expected to remain west of our area through 
12z Wednesday. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
as of 340 am...still mixed signals regarding the potential for heavy 
rain across the forecast area during mid-week...as strong frontal 
zone migrates across the region. Based upon global model clues... 
much seems to hinge on the potential development of a surface wave 
across the southeast as the front progresses across the Carolinas 
and Georgia Wednesday into Wednesday night. Interestingly...although the European model (ecmwf) 
and GFS develop a wave of similar strength across the Carolinas 
during this time...the low level forcing and quantitative precipitation forecast response is quite 
different...with the GFS developing a band of heavier precipitation across 
the forecast area...while the European model (ecmwf) maintains a very muted quantitative precipitation forecast 
response. Nevertheless...the potential for heavy rain is still there 
in light of well-above normal precipitable waters  and a slow moving/strong frontal 
zone. 


The main story of the latter medium range will be the return of 
unseasonably cold air...as strong short wave ejecting from the 
plains allows for the return of the eastern long wave trough. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Sunday through Friday/... 
at kclt...as with previous forecast...guidance discrepancies continue to 
yield low confidence on timing and values of visb. That said 
mostly IFR conditions are expected to prevail through the period 
dominated by low ceilings and above mentioned variable visb. Initialized 
tafs at IFR ceilings and 4sm visb amidst light NE flow with a tempo for 
rain as a band of precipitation slides up the i85 corridor towards the 
airfield. Beyond that...carry solid IFR through the overnight with 
variable visb with some guidance favoring patchy dense fog by 
early/middle morning. Opted not to include in taf at this time. Winds 
will veer southerly late this afternoon before calming for the 
overnight. Winds will shift back to the north as weak back door 
front slides in by morning. Visb should be improved by then as all 
precipitation has exited the region...however very moist planetary boundary layer will warrant 
continuation of IFR/MVFR ceilings through periods end. 


Elsewhere...much the same as kclt above as visb forecast confidence 
remains low. Feel better about IFR ceilings as wedge remains locked in. 
Thus...initialized tafs all sites aside for kavl with some mention 
of weather for current precipitation...be it prevailing...or tempo. 
Restrictions continue through the night due to persistent wedge and 
moist/decoupling planetary boundary layer. Would not be surprised to see patchy dense 
fog by morning...but left out of taf at this time due to low 
confidence. Otherwise...winds will veer southerly at all sites this 
afternoon before backing northerly late in the period as above 
mentioned back door front intrudes. Ceilings will recover somewhat late 
in the period...although likely remaining at MVFR levels. 


Outlook...another Canadian high slides north of the Carolinas early 
in the week. As the high moves NE of the region...another brief cad 
pattern is possible. Periods of precipitation and flight restrictions are 
likely Tue-Wed. A cold front will move through the region by Thursday 
bringing wet weather and possible restrictions.
