NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1032 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 1020 am...freeze warning for this morning was allowed to 
expire on time. All of the Airport observation had risen above freezing by 
945 am...and most sites in the mountains were very close to freezing. In 
the sunshine the danger to surface vegetation was minimal. 


Spotty observation at this time show brisk gusts which are still expected to 
continue through morning mixing before diminishing. There remains some 
question as to how much cloud cover will develop over the coastal 
plain and move inland. 12z NAM features less cloud cover than 06z 
run and lamp guidance has not picked up on any clouds. So for the 
time being it appears the frost/freeze headlines for tonight will 
stand as-are. 


Temperatures/dewpoints were updated this morning but otherwise appear to be on 
track. 


Previous discussion...as of 310 am Tuesday...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 /15z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...light NE wind will increase and become gusty 
with mixing through midday. 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.
