NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1024 PM EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move off the eastern Seaboard tonight as a cold 
front and upper level disturbance approach from the west. The cold 
front will cross the area on Friday...with dry high pressure 
returning through the weekend. A wet and possibly stormy pattern 
will set up Monday through Wednesday...followed by cooler weather. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
1015 PM update...few significant changes. Band of well elevated 
clouds preceding the midlevel trough is moving through east 
Tennessee...accompanied by patchy virga which are diminishing as the 
activity pushes east away from the better moisture fetch and forcing 
from the trough. Thus maintained sub-schc probability of precipitation until after midnight. 
Overnight temperatures/dewpoints were revised mainly based on short term 
consensus product. They reflect the continued northward surge of surface 
moisture behind warm front...and increasing cloudiness. Temperatures may 
drop efficiently for a couple more hours before the higher dewpoints 
and clouds arrive...being nearly steady thereafter. 


730 PM update...warm front is basically knocking on our 
doorstep...having moved into central Georgia/SC during the late afternoon. 
Many sites just south of the forecast area are reporting dewpoints in the 50s. 
Revised probability of precipitation overnight generally to move the precipitation chances closer 
to daybreak...with isentropic fields not indicating much potential 
until well after midnight. Mesoscale models Don/T develop much until late 
tonight either. Given the southerly flow...on most model guidance the 
evolution of cloud/precipitation development in the prefrontal environment 
reflects enhancement from the Blue Ridge. This seems appropriate. 
While forecast soundings mainly indicate low stratus...some visibility 
guidance is low along it. This may actually be a result of the ridge 
being /in the clouds/. Nonetheless included a mention of restricted 
visibilities in the grids at Asheville and mountain areas south. Severe weather 
threat tomorrow still appears limited...with shear marginal across the 
area and instability relatively low in the west. Still seeing better 
SBCAPE east where the front arrives later allowing for more warming 
ahead of it. 


At 200 PM EDT Thursday...an upper ridge axis will cross the East 
Coast tonight...while an upper trough crosses the middle MS River 
Valley. Moisture will increase ahead of an approaching cold 
front...supporting precipitation as early as midnight in the 
mountains. Gulf inflow is rather limited...as is isentropic 
upglide...and precipitation is not expected to be excessive. Modest 
instability will reach the upper Savannah River valley by dawn. 
Minimum temperatures will run around five degrees above normal with 
increasing cloud cover and moisture. 


The cold front will cross our area on Friday...preceded by 
increasing instability and shear. The greatest chance of severe 
weather will be in the Piedmont in the early afternoon...especially 
in SC...GA...and the kclt metropolitan area. Drying from the SW will occur 
in the late afternoon behind front...although some precipitation 
associated with moist northwest flow may linger in the NC mountains... 
mainly near the Tennessee border. High temperatures will run around normal. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
as of 2 PM EDT Thursday...expect some lingering showers over the northern 
mountains early Friday evening. Any remaining thunderstorm activity 
over the western Piedmont should move east quickly and out of the 
forecast area by sunset. After that...the weather should be quiet. The 
whole weekend looks to be dry courtesy of an upper ridge building in 
from the west...supporting surface high pressure that moves across 
the deep south. The upper ridge axis finally reaches the western 
Carolinas Sunday evening with the surface high off the southeast 
coast...but moisture is not expected to return quick enough to allow 
for any shower development before the end of the daytime period. 
Temperatures are expected to run about five degrees above normal through 
the period...but the air mass should remain relatively dry...so it 
should amount to a seasonally warm weekend...but still comfortable. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Thursday...the word of the day is Rex block as a large 
positive height anomaly will build across central Canada early in 
the extended range...causing a broad upper low to develop over much 
of the central and eastern states. The Center Point of the upper low 
is expected to set up shop over the eastern plains or upper Midwest by 
Tuesday...with little movement Wednesday and Thursday. The ec...Canadian 
and GFS are in good agreement with the larger wavelength 
features...though there are plenty of differences with the embedded 
short wave energy later in the period. 


Early in the extended the upper low will begin to cut off over the 
Central Plains...which builds the large positive height anomaly from 
the southeast states up across the Great Lakes. Overall the latest GFS and 
Canadian have been slower with the pattern. This makes plenty of 
sense and I would expect that we will continue to see some slowing 
in such a blocky pattern. The upshot of this is that the strong low level 
jet that looked as though the would spread moderate to heavy rain 
and possibly strong storms across the region Monday night and 
Tuesday now stays west of the Appalachians. I/d say it/S a good 500 
miles farther west today. If this pattern holds...the heavy precipitation 
Monday into Tuesday should generally be west of the region. 


However...we should still see a fair amount of shower and 
thunderstorm activity starting Monday night...it just shouldn/T be 
as widespread of heavy as originally expected. Also...if the ridge 
becomes any stronger over the region...we could see more of a delay 
in precipitation onset into late Tuesday or Tuesday night. I Haven/T pushed things 
back quite that far yet. 


With the upper low hanging around at least through day 7...we will 
see a chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday as well. A period of 
heavier rain or stronger convection is possible either 
day...depending on the location of any stronger...advective 
shortwave features within the trough. Temperatures should gradually 
fall during the extended period...starting a little above normal on 
Monday...and ending well below normal Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...VFR under bands of cirrus for most of tonight...with 
midlevel stratocu developing late in the evening. Eventually a low 
stratus deck is expected to form and bring ceilings to IFR...as moist 
southerly flow builds ahead of cold front. These low ceilings will lift 
gradually through the morning. Some rain showers will be possible from the early 
morning Onward and thunderstorms and rain become more likely as the ceiling lifts...allowing 
surface destabilization. Best chances from midday to late afternoon when the 
front moves through and drying occurs. Southeasterly winds continue 
tonight...veering to SW prior to frontal passage and becoming gusty. 


Elsewhere...trends much like kclt. Areas with the best chance of low 
ceilings...and the earliest areas to see rain showers develop tonight...will be 
along and just south of the Blue Ridge. Guidance also brings visibilities 
down in these areas. Have gone IFR visibility at kavl...and included an 
IFR ceiling at the other sites. All sites have a vc mention for a 
portion of the day to reflect scattered nature of convection...but 
also a prob30 during the peak chances. Winds remain southerly but 
will veer as the front approaches. 


Outlook...dry high pressure returns Saturday through Sunday. Increased 
moisture returns to the region early next week...with a blocked 
pattern setting up which could bring periods of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain and 
associated restrictions into midweek.
