NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1234 am EST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
low level moisture will linger atop a wedge of high pressure...as a 
series of weak waves track by to our south tonight through Monday. 
Deeper moisture arrives on Tuesday ahead of a sharp cold front. The 
cold front will cross the area from the west on Wednesday. Cold and 
windy conditions will set up in the mountains through Thursday... 
with drier conditions expected east of the mountains. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
0530 UTC update...winds were updated from the latest guidance. Areas 
of fog were updated from guidance as well...leaning toward the more 
pessimistic met per dew point depression trends. 


915 PM update...no significant changes as conditions are quiescent 
beneath the low stratus deck...including temperatures which are only very 
slowly dropping. Did touch up T/dew point over the next few hours per the 9 
PM observation and short term model consensus product. 


630 PM update...overall the expectations for tonight have not 
changed since last update. Stratus cover the region at this time and the 
Assumption is that with no scouring mechanism...and with clear skies 
above the deck allowing for good cloud top cooling...these will 
persist until after daybreak. Did eliminate all mention of probability of precipitation 
except for the drizzle mention near the Blue Ridge...which still is 
plausible given the low level moisture and the continued east-southeast flow into 
that area. The expected trend for Sunday also remains the same per 
18z guidance. With a dry start to the day and weakening of The Wedge 
we should see clouds lift and break to some degree...but the 
improvement is short-lived as isentropic upglide will set up again 
over northern Georgia/SC by afternoon...which still looks capable of cloud/precipitation 
development. 


As of early Sat afternoon...model soundings and time heights indicate 
that low level flow will remain mostly NE-east through Sunday as weak 
cad conditions continue. Boundary layer also is forecast to remain 
moist. Hence...expect clouds to stubbornly hang in. Also as the 
boundary layer cools overnight and upper levels dry... expect 
widespread fog to develop. Right now it does not look like visibilities 
will lower enough to warrant an advisory...but this will be 
reaccessed through the evening forecast updates. A weak upslope 
component into the Blue Ridge may produce patchy drizzle there 
overnight. Some of the higher elevations could cool enough for some 
freezing drizzle...but again not widespread enough for any advisory. 


On Sunday...little change is expected as weak cad persists. Sunday 
should be a mostly cloudy day with temperatures perhaps recovering a 
category above today as clouds thin some during the afternoon. 
However...maximum temperatures will be below climatology outside of the mountains. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Tuesday/... 
as of 200 PM EST Sat...Sun night through Monday night...a southwesterly 
upper diffluent flow regime will set up across the region by Monday 
night as a southern stream upper shortwave approaches from the SW 
and a weak upper ridge axis pushes off the East Coast. Ahead of this 
upper feature...best 290k isentropic lift will occur between 00z and 
12z Monday. The upper wave is forecast to lift NE across the County Warning Area 
between 12z and 18z Monday...off the NC/Virginia coast by 00z Tuesday. At the 
surface...cold air damming wedge will persist across the region as 
1030mb high remains centered over the NE states. Meanwhile...a 
cyclogenesis will take place just off the southeast coast on 
Monday...overspreading deep moisture from the southeast. The combination of 
the best 290k isentropic lift and deep layer moisture advection will 
support likely probability of precipitation over the Piedmont and solid chance probability of precipitation in the 
mountain zones late Sun night into Monday morning. Given above freezing 
surface temperatures and warm nose aloft...frozen precipitation is not expected at 
this time. Probability of precipitation ramp down to the chance range through Monday afternoon as 
the low pulls farther NE away and the upper forcing ejects to the 
NE. Monday night and Tuesday...a residual cad and moist southwesterly flow aloft 
over the area will keep low end chance probability of precipitation over the Piedmont with 
slight chance probability of precipitation over the mountains zones. With ongoing precipitation and 
cad...temperatures will remain 3-7 degrees below normal. 


Tuesday...a rather strong south-southwesterly upper difflent will devep over the 
southeast as a high-amplitude upper trough will dig into the western Gulf 
states. At the surface...a low over the Great Plains will lift NE 
into the western Great Lakes region...pushing an associated sharp 
surface cold front into the Mississippi Valley by 00z Wednesday. 
Meanwhile...the high centered over the NE states will shift 
offshore...with NE flow becoming easterly over the forecast area by 
Tuesday afternoon in its wake. Probability of precipitation then ramp up to categorical over the 
Escarpment of the Blue Ridge and likely range elsewhere through late 
Tuesday afternoon/evening as strong upper south-southwesterly diffluent flow aloft 
develops while Atlantic moisture advection increases in easterly 
flow regime. Temperatures will warm into near normal range on Tuesday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 130 PM Saturday...a deep upper trough and associated cyclone 
will move across the eastern Continental U.S. Early in the medium range 
period...likely resulting in widespread rain across the forecast 
area early on Christmas evening. Quantitative precipitation forecast will be the primary challenge 
surrounding this period of the forecast over the next couple of 
days...as there appears to be a good case for a considerable amount 
of Gulf Coast convection potentially interrupting transport of the 
richest Gulf moisture into the area. Nevertheless...most areas 
should see rain late Tuesday night/early Wednesday...and high-end likely to 
categorical probability of precipitation will be carried during this time. Another 
potentially problematic facet to the forecast is the potential for 
convection across our area within high shear/Low Cape regime Wednesday 
morning...as strong/deep meridionally-oriented forcing accompanies 
the cold front into the area. The latest GFS has become a little 
more pronounced with its surface-based instability during this 
time...and a slight chance for thunder will be carried...mainly 
across the Piedmont. 


Although a brief northwest flow snow event may unfold later Wednesday into 
Wednesday night...the low level flow remains quite backed as snow levels 
start to fall...owing to a considerable amount of upper level short 
wave energy remaining upstream of the region. Meanwhile...the upper 
trough axis is expected to lift quickly off the coast into early 
Thursday...so moisture does not linger for very long once the flow 
finally turns northwest. This spells a low impact event. 


Christmas will be unseasonably cool but dry under anomalously low 
heights...but temperatures will begin to moderate by Friday as heights rise 
over the east in response to departing trough...and a new round of 
height falls across the western Continental U.S.. this area of height falls and 
attendant frontal zone may bring the next chance for precipitation to the 
area by day 7. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...guidance favors keeping ceiling at MVFR until around 
midday...then favors low VFR into tonight. With a low dew point 
depression...the forecast leaned toward more pessimistic guidance 
with regard to visibility...carrying MVFR in fog around daybreak. Light 
rain should move in late tonight as a low moves up the coast. 


At kavl...low IFR ceiling should persist...with visibility lowering from MVFR 
to IFR around daybreak. Some light drizzle is possible overnight in 
light upslope flow...but odds are too low to mention this. Guidance 
favors VFR this afternoon...with a return to MVFR this evening...and 
light rain late this evening...as low pressure moves up the coast. 


Elsewhere... with many ceilings just above IFR...chances seem good for 
IFR around daybreak. Dew point depressions seem ripe for IFR fog as 
well. The models support improvement to VFR late this afternoon... 
with a return to MVFR this evening with rain...as a low moves up the 
coast. 


Outlook...lingering low level moisture is likely to keep low stratus 
and night time fog around through Monday...with some improvement during 
the daylight hours. A cold front will approach on Tuesday from the 
west and move through on Wednesday. Widespread showers with restrictions 
should arrive Tuesday afternoon and will continue until the front 
clears the area late Wednesday.
