NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
751 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will remain in control of the weather through 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... 
ddhhmm 
wrknrt 


730 PM update...have made minor updates to the hourly temperatures/dew point to 
account for the latest observation trend. Otherwise...the current forecast 
is on track. 


As of 200 PM EDT Wednesday...broad upper trough/cyclone continue to 
eject eastward over the Atlantic Seaboard. At the surface...cold 
front that pushed through the region last night is well to the south 
allowing for high pressure to slide in from the northwest. In 
response...northwesterly downsloping flow combined with abundant 
incoming solar radiation consequent of mostly sunny skies has 
allowed for modest warming across the region with most sites 
hovering in the Lower/Middle 60s. Increased pressure gradient forces 
amongst deep mixed layer continues to yield gusty northwesterly 
winds at the surface with the strongest gusts residing over the high 
terrain...along with portions of the northcentral upstate due to gap 
winds through the French Broad valley. These gusty winds are 
expected to subside by late evening as the mixed layer erodes 
leading to sustained winds in the 5-10mph range at most locations. 
However...terrain blockage across the Savannah River valley...and 
also in and around the little Tennessee River valley will lead to decreased 
winds and increased fog potential. Not expecting any dense fog as 
the boundary layer remains fairly dry that far south...however would 
not be surprised to see a few of these locations experience visb 
reductions of around 4-5 miles by morning. 


Otherwise...quiet/cool night ahead with temperatures dropping into 
the 30s across the high terrain while the lower elevations hold in 
the lower 40s. Despite the cold and near freezing mins tonight over 
the northern NC mountains...not expecting any frost concerns as 
winds should remain at levels unsupportive of frost formation. 
Weaker winds to the south across portions of northeast Georgia and 
southwest NC combined with temperatures in the middle 30s would support 
frost potential...thus will likely issue frost advisory for these 
zones. Another beautiful fall day in store for Thursday as deep 
layer ridging prevails allowing for mostly sunny skies and near 
climatology temperatures. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Saturday/... 
as of 240 PM Wednesday...typically benign middle-autumn weather will 
persist into the weekend...as an upper low spins off the 
northeast coast...and the mean eastern long wave trough is 
reinforced by a short wave diving out of the corn belt region Thursday 
nite/Fri. The trough moves east Friday night/Sat leaving northwesterly flow 
across the area. High pressure briefly ridges in from the west. 
However...persistent northwest flow and periods of low level moisture 
should result in periods of cloudiness across the NC mountains through 
the period...but the moisture is expected to remain too shallow to 
support upslope showers. Will see cool nites and mild days with a 
slight warming trend. Could see another round of frost/freeze 
potential for the mountain zones where frost/freeze products are still 
being issued. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 255 PM Wednesday...guidance in good agreement indicating a pattern 
change during the medium range...with the eastern trough being 
replaced with a ridge through Tuesday. Southwesterly flow aloft develops Wednesday as 
the ridge axis moves east and a trough moves into the central Continental U.S.. 
a dry front crosses the area Sunday with high pressure building in 
Monday and sliding across the area Tuesday. The guidance differs on the 
strength and speed of the trough...with the GFS weaker and faster 
and the European model (ecmwf) stronger and slower. This results in the GFS 
bringing a weak front into the mountains late Wednesday...and the European model (ecmwf) 
bringing a stronger front with good southerly flow into the western County warning forecast area by 
that time. For now...have limited pop to slight chance for the NC mountains 
and northern tier...in line with a model blend...given the uncertainty. 
Mild temperatures sun see a brief cool down Monday...then show a warming 
slow warming trend through the end of the period. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
ddhhmm 
wrktaf 


At kclt and elsewhere...cp high pressure centered to our north will 
continue to bring VFR conditions to most locations through 00z Friday. 
North/northwest winds will prevail thoughout the taf period with winds 
remaining in the 6-10 kts range. Patchy fog may affect over the 
savanah river valleys before sunset. Skies will remain mostly clear 
throgh the period. 


Outlook...quiet weather will continue across the region...as deep 
layer ridging settles in through this weekend. 


&& 


Gsp watches/warnings/advisories... 
Georgia...frost advisory from 2 am to 9 am EDT Thursday for gaz010-017. 
NC...frost advisory from 2 am to 9 am EDT Thursday for ncz063. 
SC...none.
