NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
645 am EDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
an unseasonably cold air mass will remain over the region into 
Friday. A deep upper trough arrives from the west to start the 
weekend. By early next week...temperatures should range close to 
normal ahead of an approaching cold front. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 645 am...skies are clear with generally light winds...except 
gusty across the mountains temperatures have finally fallen to or near freezing 
across most of the area. Freeze warning will remain in place through 
expiration. Otherwise...going forecast still on track...so updates 
mainly for current conditions. 


As of 310 am Tuesday...clouds continue to dissipate across the NC 
mountains and should be gone by daybreak. Many locations in the freeze 
warning have already reached freezing...with other locations cooling 
basically on schedule. Current freeze warning will remain in place 
through expiration. Winds have diminished greatly outside of the mountains 
but remain gusty...with occasional strong bursts across the mountains 
expect the mountain winds to diminish by daybreak as well...but should 
remain gusty through morning. Expect northeasterly winds outside of the mountains to 
become gusty with mixing by mid-morning...then slowly diminish through 
the Day. Mountain winds will diminish and turn southeasterly for the afternoon. 
Sunny skies expected through the day...but the cold air mass in place 
will keep highs around 15 degrees below normal. 


High pressure remains wedged into the area from the NE tonight. This 
keeps the cold air mass in place across the area...but with some 
moderation. The pressure gradient tightens toward morning as a short 
wave moving through the southwesterly flow aloft helps spin up a weak surface low 
along the stalled cold front off shore. Ely flow around this system 
could bring low level moisture...and clouds...into the eastern County warning forecast area 
toward daybreak. If this does develop...it could put a damper on 
good radiational conditions across at least a portion of the area. 
That said...even the NAM which is most aggressive with the flow and 
moisture...shows little to no increase in condensation pressure 
deficits on the low level isentropic surfaces over the area by 
morning. Given the guidance disagreement...will keep mostly clear 
skies tonight...but some wind continuing. All this to say forecast lows 
still fall to freezing across the watch area. Therefore...will 
upgrade to a warning for tonight. There could even be patchy 
freezing temperatures outside of the watch area in normally colder 
locations. However...they should remain isolated enough to preclude a 
warning. Frost is a little more marginal given the relatively dry 
air mass...winds and potential clouds. Still...have widespread area 
with temperatures reaching well into the frost producing category. Since 
isolated freezing temperatures are possible...will go with a frost advection for 
the rest of the upstate and NE Georgia. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday/... 
as of 250 am Wednesday...on Thursday...both the GFS and the European model (ecmwf) 
indicate that a 1045 mb high will remain centered near Nova 
Scotia...ridging SW across the East Coast. This pattern will provide 
dry and cool low level NE flow across the western Carolinas and NE Georgia. 
Sunny to mostly sunny conditions should result in 25 to 30 degree 
warming over morning lows. A blend of preferred MOS supports high 
temperatures generally in the low 60s. Thursday night...500 mb trough axis 
is expected to ripple over the southern Mississippi River valley. As 
the trough approaches...surface low pressure will likely develop over the 
northern Gulf of Mexico along an old cold front. As the low 
develops...deep moisture will advect northward across the deep 
south...reaching the southern appalachian region around sunrise. 
Forecast soundings indicate that the combination of high clouds and 
thickening middle clouds should result in mostly cloudy conditions by 
middle morning Friday. Ahead of the surface low...850 mb winds will veer south 
and should provide weak warm air advection. High temperatures will likely warm over 
Thursday/S values by 1-3 degrees. Sprinkles are possible across the 
eastern Piedmont late Friday afternoon...but the forecast will 
feature no mentionable probability of precipitation. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 310 PM Wednesday...on Saturday...both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS indicate 
that low pressure will deepen across the upper Florida Peninsula during 
the morning...tracking east. At the middle levels...a deep trough to 
closed low is expected to remain over the surface low...followed by 
ridging centered over the southern Mississippi River valley. Both 
solutions indicate little to no quantitative precipitation forecast across the County warning forecast area. High 
temperatures are forecast to range very close to climatology. Broad high 
pressure and low amplitude ridging should provide dry conditions 
with near normal temperatures over the region on Sunday. Early next 
week...another middle level short wave is expected to ripple from the middle 
Continental U.S. On Monday to the southern Appalachians by Tuesday. The surface low 
will track north of the forecast area...with the associated cold 
front sweeping into the region on Tuesday. Deep moisture and weak 
instability should support scattered rain showers...with a few thunderstorms and rain over the upper 
Savannah River valley and upstate during the daylight hours on 
Tuesday. High temperatures may remain slightly above normal. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...light NE wind will increase and become gusty 
with mixing by middle morning. Gusts drop off as winds turn east-northeast for the 
afternoon. Kavl the exception where gusty northerly wind becomes southeasterly for 
the afternoon. Winds return to northeasterly overnight...but remain near 10 
kts through the period. Kavl will see a return to northerly winds. The NAM 
suggests MVFR clouds may make a run at kclt just before daybreak... 
with other guidance showing any clouds remain south of the area 
until shortly after daybreak. Will keep forecast VFR but include sct250 
for now. 


Outlook...low clouds may move across kclt and the SC sites after 
daybreak Thursday...then lift to VFR through the day. Otherwise...VFR 
expected Thursday. Ceiling and visibility restrictions will return 
Friday and Saturday as a cold front approaches from the west and a 
low pressure system develops along the coast.
