NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
311 am EDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
a low pressure system will develop in the northeastern part of the 
Gulf today...and track east across northern Florida tonight. This 
will spread precipitation into the region tonight into Saturday. 
Cool high pressure lingers behind the departing low Sunday and 
Monday. A cold front will cross the area on Tuesday...followed by 
dry high pressure for the rest of the workweek. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 220 am EDT...water vapor imagery showed the upstream southern 
trough axis moving toward the lower MS River Valley this morning 
with a dampening shortwave ejecting eastward from the trough toward the 
base of the southern Appalachians. The main impact from these upstream 
features continues to be increasing middle and high level clouds...with 
nearly all convection and precipitation confined to the Florida Panhandle 
and eastern Gulf of Mexico. Although northwest Piedmont temperatures fell fairly 
rapidly last evening hours...the encroaching blanket of middle/high 
clouds should preclude frost this morning around daybreak. 


At the surface...weak high pressure lingering along the New Jersey coast will keep a 
dry cad pattern over the area early today as the clouds continue to 
thicken and lower. Will lean cooler than MOS on maximum temperatures for today. 
Upper level divergence will increase rapidly across the forecast 
area today into tonight as a 500 mb low center in the upstream 
trough closes off over Alabama by evening and then migrates slowly toward 
the southeast coastline overnight. The deepest forcing and moisture ahead 
of this system will cross the region tonight. Although the greatest 
quantitative precipitation forecast swath may be focused just southeast of the area....deformation zone 
precipitation and upslope could still focus some heavier 
precipitation northward into our area. Two quantitative precipitation forecast maxima may thus set 
up...one in the lower Piedmont and a secondary area along the southern/southeast 
Escarpment areas...but with one half to one inch rainfall totals in 
between as frontogenesis develops from the lower Piedmont to the 
Blue Ridge. Precipitable water values are not especially impressive 
at a little over one inch through tonight...and given the lack of a 
clear terrain focus and the relatively short duration of the heavier 
rainfall...a Flood Watch is not expected. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday night/... 
as of 300 am Friday...models are in good agreement on the 500 mb low 
slowly working its way east rougly along the Florida/Georgia border on 
Saturday...keeping the County warning forecast area under strong q-vector convergence through 
the day. A surface low will be nearly right under the upper low...with a 
stiff NE low level flow and deformation zone precipitation shield likely still 
across much of the area at least through the morning. I have bumped up 
probability of precipitation through the day...with a slower decreasing trend in the afternoon. Surface 
high pressure building into the northeast states will supply cool air...so 
taking a blend of the consraw guidance...temperatures were ratcheted 
down...staying primarily in the 50s to lower 60s in the west. 
Additional quantitative precipitation forecast of up to a quarter inch in the southeast zones is 
possible. 


Based on latest model trends...it looks like the wrap-around 
moisture and low level NE flow lingers Saturday night and even into 
Sunday. I have pop taper off to less than 15 percent by Sunday 
morning...but clouds slow to clear until about midday in the east. 
Given the cool NE flow...I did blend in consraw temperatures to bump them 
down...especially east of the mountains 


A narrow surface ridge axis settles over the area Sunday night under 
rising heights aloft. Temperatures will be near normal...so no frost/freeze 
concerns are expected. 


&& 


Long term /Monday through Thursday/... 
as of 215 am Friday...the op models are in good agreement on the 
phasing of remnant southern stream energy from a closed upper low in vicinity of 
calif and a northern stream shortwave trough digging into the Great Lakes 
Monday into Tuesday. The resultant propagating latitudinal trough will 
push a cold front through the County warning forecast area on Tuesday. The GFS is most bullish 
on instability and convective coverage...with 600-800 j/kg of SBCAPE. 
Overall forcing with the front looks modest at best...and the forecast 
soundings show a deep-layer unidirectional westerly flow. So not expecting 
much more than scattered showers with perhaps a few thunderstorms. The best 
coverage will be near the Tennessee line...as downslope may limit coverage 
east of the mountains 


An upper ridge builds back in behind the shortwave Wednesday through 
Friday...with dry weather on tap for the rest of the week. 


Temperatures start out near normal Monday...then warming a couple 
categories above normal ahead of the front Tuesday...and staying 
above normal Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...the cloud base forecast has a fairly high degree of 
uncertainty...with some models generating MVFR ceilings by daybreak 
today...while others keep any ceilings at mainly cirrus levels early on. 
Will hedge with a sct020 forecast by 09z...but go with a consensus 
VFR forecast. The higher level VFR overcast will steadily lower and 
thicken through the day...with a fairly rapid transition to MVFR 
then IFR ceilings during the last 6 hours of the taf period as rain 
develops. NE winds should be less than 10 knots through the first half 
of the period...but with increasing flow and gusts late as surface low 
pressure over southeast Georgia tightens the gradient. 


Elsewhere...mainly VFR middle and high clouds are expected 
early...except for a better chance of MVFR this morning at kand in 
weak upglide over the cad layer. Expect mainly NE winds throughout 
today...except toggling between southeast and nearly at kavl. Ceilings should 
deteriorate rapidly late today through tonight from the S as better 
upglide moisture and upper support arrive. Anticipate MVFR ceilings by 
early evening...with IFR likely after 03z along with moderate to 
possibly heavy rainfall. In addition...a tightening pressure gradient north of 
the southeast Georgia coastal low will produce northeasterly gusts above 20 knots at the 
upstate taf sites late in the period. 


Outlook...ceiling and visibility restrictions will linger well into 
Sat as a southeast coastal low pressure system pulls slowly away. Dry high 
pressure will return Sunday into Monday...with a fairly wet frontal 
system expected on Tuesday.
