NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
639 PM EST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a moist airmass will remain atop the region before a cold front 
crosses by Wednesday night. Dry high pressure will arrive for 
Christmas day and linger into Friday. Another cold front will cross 
the area on Saturday...followed by high pressure on Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
ddhhmm 
wrknrt 


As of 635 PM...light rain shield is moving in a bit faster than 
prognosticated across the SW/rn zones...so probability of precipitation were adjacent up into the 
likely/Cat range. Low end quantitative precipitation forecast amounts still look good. Temperatures and 
dew point/S remaining nearly steady state in highly moist 
environment...thus only minor tweaks needed to these grids. 


As of 225 PM...cold temperatures...low clouds and patchy drizzle will 
continue through the afternoon...except all but the Tennessee border counties 
where breaks in the clouds have lead to relatively warm temperatures. 
Patchy rain beginning to spread back into the southern tier of the County warning forecast area 
and this trend will continue through the afternoon...with some slow 
northerly movement of the precipitation. 


A series of short waves will move across the area in the southwesterly flow 
ahead of a deepening central Continental U.S. Trough tonight and Tuesday. At the 
surface...cad regime will remain in place through the period as well 
keeping copious amounts of low level moisture across the area and 
northeasterly surface flow...except across the mountains where southerly flow prevails. The 
low level flow will remain southerly as well...and strengthen tonight 
increasing isentropic upglide across the area. Therefore...rain should 
return along with the continuing drizzle through the night. Expect low 
clouds and areas of fog to continue or redevelop as well. Cannot 
rule out some patchy dense fog toward daybreak...but location not 
certain enough to include in the forecast at this time. Lows will be in the 30s 
for all but the higher elevations of the southwestern mountains and Tennessee border 
counties where they are outside of the cad dome and tap into the 
warming 850 mb temperatures. This will also help keep precipitation all liquid. 


There may be a brief break in the better lift Tuesday morning...but it 
returns through the day...along with deeper moisture and some upper 
divergence as a jet streak moves north into the area. Expect rain 
and drizzle to become widespread by afternoon...although areas of 
drizzle will likely continue even where rain diminishes. Expect 
another cool day under the cad. However...would not be surprised if 
temperatures warm a few degrees above the Monday readings as the parent 
high is shunted eastward and cad takes on more of an in-situ 
pattern. The Tennessee border counties will once again be much warmer than 
areas under the cad. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
at 200 PM EST Monday..12z model runs indicate that some semblance of 
a wedge will remain through most if not all of Tuesday night. The NAM 
does suggest that perhaps the southern upstate may get uncovered by 
12z Wednesday. The upshot for Tuesday night is that isentropic lift will 
continue over The Wedge with widespread light to even moderate rain. 
Best rainfall rates are expected to be over the western upstate...NE 
Georgia mountains and the western Escarpment where best forcing/upslope 
flow will become established. Rainfall in those areas is likely to 
be upwards of an inch. On Wednesday...the consensus is that the remainder 
of The Wedge will gradually be uncovered...but as usual it could 
linger well into the afternoon from the central upstate eastward. 
Rain/drizzle will become showery as wedge dissipates. The next issue 
is the cold front that will translate across the area from the west 
as low pressure moves from central Tennessee to the lower Great Lakes on 
Wednesday. The 12z models are trending slower with the frontal passage... 
with the NAM the slowest of the operational runs....a good 6 hours 
slower than the global models. The 09z sref supports the slower NAM. 
In regard to timing will use a consensus approach which will move 
the front into western sections during Wednesday afternoon and then across 
the remainder of the area late Wednesday afternoon/evening. The main 
concern with the frontal passage will be the threat for some sort of 
qlcs event. All the models show some low end cape upwards of 200 
j/kg ahead of the front. Shear/helicity is adequate although not 
through the roof but forecast sherb values generally <1. Also...the 
upper forcing is not coincident with the front. The upper trough is 
forecast to trail the surface front with the main upper forcing 
going well north of the region. Hence...chances for severe 
convection appear on the low end. The cips analog does make ME pause 
as it paints a 30% area of top analogs producing at least 1 severe 
event across the piedmonts of NE Georgia...SC and NC. Storm Prediction Center keeps the 
mention of severe east of the area...so bottom line is that we will 
not not mention the threat of severe in the severe weather potential statement. Dryer air and 
downsloping winds will finally scour clouds out east of the 
mountains Wednesday night with perhaps a period of some northwest flow snow/rain 
showers early Christmas in the mountains. 


In regard to Hydro...I have hefty quantitative precipitation forecast in my forecast grids with 
storm total rainfall around 2.5 inches over NE Georgia...western upstate 
and the western Escarpment. However...antecedent conditions are 
benign so do not anticipate any significant Hydro concerns. 


Temperatures will be a challenge as a non-diurnal trend will occur 
Tuesday night where The Wedge erodes. This would most likely be across 
the southern peripherey of the forecast area. Temperatures on Wednesday should 
surge well into the 60s as The Wedge dissipates. Cooler temperatures will 
then occur Wednesday night with maximum temperatures Thursday near climatology. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 200 PM Monday...high pressure over the southern Atlantic region will 
make for settled conditions in our area Thursday night through early 
Sat...before the high is forced offshore by a longwave trough digging 
into the central Continental U.S.. global models have delayed arrival of the 
cold front on the leading edge of the trough...now suggesting the 
front will cross the mountains during the day Sat at the earliest. 


The GFS has maintained consistency with earlier runs...deamplifying 
the trough over the weekend and allowing dry high pressure to fill in 
across the southeast in its wake. Ec and now the opnl CMC-Gem show a 
similar evolution albeit markedly different from the GFS. They depict 
a shortwave shearing off the trough over the Southern Plains Saturday 
which induces Gulf cyclogenesis and makes for a wet Sunday over our 
County warning forecast area. This is not indicated by any 22/06z gefs members and only a 
couple of the 22/12z Gem ensemble members. Noting how different the 
ec/CMC solution is from earlier runs it appears wise to discount it 
to some degree. Looking a bit further forward...GFS does feature its 
own differences by late Monday as it spins up a new Gulf low at that 
time and begins to spread precipitation northward through GA/SC. Confidence in the 
forecast is not very high beyond Saturday. 


Temperatures should trend upward through Sunday...with mins ending up a couple 
degrees above climatology and maxes 5-7 above climatology. Slightly cooler temperatures 
return for Monday with high pressure just north of the region.

Aviation /00z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
ddhhmm 
wrktaf 


At kclt...low level moisture feed remains constant over surface wedge with 
deeper forced moisture moving into area within the next few hours. 
Ceilings holding steady in the IFR/LIFR range and will expect these 
to persist throughout the taf period. Incoming -ra could scour out 
visibility a bit into the 3-4sm range...with a drop back to 1sm or less 
after 09z through daybreak. Dense fog is possible around daybreak as well. 
Another round of moderate rain moves in near the end of the taf 
period with visibilities improving somewhat. Winds remain locked in NE/ly 
in cad flow. 


Elsewhere...similar conds at all sites through the taf period. Low 
IFR to LIFR ceilings aligned in low level cad moisture will persist 
through the taf period...while -dz and -ra affect the terminals. 
Visibilities will waver back and forth between 1-5sm with the potential for 
dense fog around daybreak. Winds remain aligned NE/ly non/mountains and 
S/ly down valley flow at kavl. 


Outlook...deep moisture continues through Tuesday night ahead of the 
next approaching cold front. Low restrictions and widespread rain 
showers are expected. A cold front will cross the region from the 
west on Wednesday. Dry high pressure will return through late week.
