NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1043 am EDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the region from the northwest tonight 
bringing cooler air to the area for the upcoming week. Expect dry 
weather for the whole week...then next weekend could have some rain 
for part of the region. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1035 am...mostly clear skies outside of the mountains will allow 
quite a bit of sunshine and heating today before clouds increase 
later this afternoon. Mountain Valley fog is dissipating with westerly upslope 
clouds developing. The mountain clouds will briefly dissipate before 
convective cumulus quickly develops. Mesoscale convective system along cold front to our west is 
dissipating with little additional activity along the front. 
Guidance still suggests best precipitation chance across the mountains where 
moisture...forcing and instability will be best. Convective chance 
outside of the mountains is much less given the relative lack of 
moisture...westerly flow and lower instability. Cannot rule out a severe 
wind gust from storms over the mountains given the increasing shear and 
dry middle levels. Forecast already has this covered...so only minor 
changes needed...mainly for current conditions. 


1030 UTC update...sky cover has been updated per satellite imagery 
and observations. Areas of fog have been adjusted per observations. 
Winds were updated to incorporate the 06z NAM. 


At 245 am EDT Sunday...an upper trough will amplify over the Great 
Lakes today...while an upper low weakens as it moves up the Carolina 
coast. The upper trough axis reaches the East Coast tonight...while 
a strong shortwave moving into its base approached the southern 
Appalachians. 


Dry high pressure between a low off the Carolinas coast and an 
approaching cold front now in the Ohio River valley will break down 
this morning. The cold front will reach the southern Appalachians by 
this evening...preceded by convection. Cape appears to be limited to 
under 1000 j/kg...especially east of the mountains...but wind shear 
and dry air aloft will be present. Gusty winds and hail cannot be 
ruled out. The front crosses the foothills and Piedmont this 
evening. The models differ slightly on the timing of the 
boundary...but by daybreak Monday it appears to be just about out of 
our area. 


High temperatures today will run several categories above normal in 
warm advection ahead of the front. Minimum temperatures will run a 
bit above normal as Post frontal winds remain up and some cloud 
cover lingers. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 2 am EDT Sunday...the short term forecast period initializes 
Monday morning at 12z with the cold front moving southeast across the area. 
The NAM retains significantly more clouds and precipitation associated with 
the frontal passage than the other models. Assuming that the NAM is 
the outlier model in this case...have decided to keep any chance of 
precipitation outside of the mountains at a very minimum only slight pop 
for far southeast counties of the Carolina Piedmont Monday morning. Dry air 
filters in for the rest of the day as the surface high to our north 
exerts more influence into our region into middle week. If the slower 
solution of frontal passage on the NAM becomes the end 
version...then we will have to increase probability of precipitation a bit along and southeast of 
I-85 on Monday. Temperatures will be cooling going from just a couple of 
degrees below normal Monday to two categories below normal into middle 
week. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
as of 145 am Sunday...the medium range forecast picks up at 12z on 
Wednesday under an upper ridge with surface high pressure over New 
England and a cool NE flow into our region. Although both the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) are very similar with a broad upper ridge from The Rockies 
to the east...there are more differences by day 7. The ridge will 
hold over the east while a trough digs across the western states 
days 6 and 7. 


At the surface...strong Canadian high pressure will be centered to 
our north with cool and dry air over the forecast area. For Thursday and 
Friday the center of the high shifts a bit east with the wind going 
from NE to from a more easterly direction with a moist fetch off the 
Atlantic. This flow will create an increase in clouds and bring 
slight probability of precipitation to the eastern and southern forecast zones. Thus...the 
slight chance probability of precipitation will initially be over the Piedmont...then over 
the weekend the flux of moisture should affect NE Georgia and the upstate 
more than the NC Piedmont. The GFS has a plume of moisture rotating 
north from the eastern Gulf over the weekend moving across Alabama and Georgia 
then into Tennessee by Saturday night. The ec on the other hand is drier 
for our region over the weekend...but certainly shows a large plume 
of moisture moving north from the Gulf Saturday night...but farther 
west than the GFS moisture plume. 


Although we will be under an upper ridge through this period...the 
cool surface high to our north will keep temperatures a few degrees below 
normal from day 4 through day 7. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt and all but kavl...VFR. Clear skies will give way to 
developing convective cumulus this afternoon. Questionable whether any 
low VFR ceilings develop given the developing westerly flow...but middle and/or 
high cloud ceiling likely. The chance of convection today and tonight is 
not great enough to mention. Light west-northwest winds will back to west-southwest and 
increase today...veering northwest behind the front late tonight. Winds 
will stay up ahead of the front this evening...and behind it 
overnight. 


At kavl...fog is dissipating...along with westerly upslope clouds. 
Convective cumulus develops through afternoon...with low VFR ceiling possible. 
Cold front moving in brings chance of convection this afternoon and 
evening. Kavl has the best chance of any taf site for seeing 
convection...so may have to add for the 18z taf. Northwest wind will 
increase today and remaining up late tonight. Model time heights 
suggest an MVFR ceiling late tonight if enough cloud cover remains 
behind the departing front. 


Outlook...high pressure builds back in early next week with VFR 
conditions. Moisture may return from the coast by late in the week.
