... Increased fire danger until 7 PM EDT this evening...

Gusty northwest winds will continue across the region through
much of the day. In addition... relative humidity values are
forecast to fall into the lower to middle 20s. The combination of
gusty winds and low humidity will increase the threat of rapidly
spreading wildfires today.

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn today. If you do burn... use extreme caution since
fires can quickly get out of hand under these conditions.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
253 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure...centered near the Great Lakes...will control our 
weather through Thursday. A weak cold front will cross the forecast 
area on Friday...with a reinforcing front stalling in the vicinity 
of the region over the weekend. A wet and possibly stormy pattern 
will set up for early next week...followed by cooler weather. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 150 PM...weakening pressure gradient has resulted in middle to 
upper teen wind gusts across the mountains and NC foothills/Piedmont this 
afternoon. Latest observations indicated a noticeable drop in relative humidity 
values across the region...especially across Piedmont areas. The 
Fire Danger Statement continues to look well placed and timed across 
the NC zones. 


Overnight...dry high pressure will ridge across the western 
Carolinas as a cold front slides across OK/TX. Winds are forecast to 
remain light from the NE or become calm during the pre dawn hours. 
The limited mixing and clear/mostly clear sky cover will favor 
radiational cooling. However...south 850 mb winds around 15kts and low 
amplitude ridging may provide weak low level warm air advection across the southern 
Appalachians. Given the weak warm air advection...I will indicate a slight inverse 
lapse rate in the min temperature across the mountains blending of the 
preferred guidance supports min temperatures between 3 to 6 degrees 
below normal. I will indicate upper 30s across the mountains and NC 
foothills...with low 40s across the I-40 corridor...with middle to 
upper 40s across the upper Savannah River valley and upstate. Patchy 
frost is possible within the mountains valleys...but below frost advisory 
criteria. 


Thursday...the cold front will sweep east across the 
arklatx...gradually increasing the return flow across the forecast 
area. Dewpoints are forecast to recover 5 to 10 degrees from this 
afternoon. High temperatures are forecast to range within 1 to 2 
degrees of normal...resulting in relative humidity values in the 30s. 
Overall...conditions should remain dry with mostly sunny conditions. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 240 PM Wednesday...a relatively strong short wave approaches the 
area Thursday night and crosses the area Friday. This wave will push a cold 
front across the area Friday as well. Moisture and isentropic lift 
increase Thursday night...bringing chance pop to the mountains and foothills after 
midnight. Good forcing moves in Friday morning with the front and short 
wave...bringing likely pop to the mountains and good chance pop to the I-40 
corridor. Forcing and deep moisture is a little lower over NE Georgia and 
the western upstate. Therefore...have limited pop to 40 percent over 
all but the mountain portions. Best chance pop shifts to the I-77 
corridor for the afternoon as the front moves into that area. The 
GFS still has more instability than the NAM...but its values have 
decreased. While there will be some shear given the strength of the 
short wave and cold front...it generally remains in the light range. 
Therefore...although scattered thunderstorms will develop...severe storm 
potential is low. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are not expected to be excessive 
either. Temperatures will be around 5 degrees above normal. 


Precipitation will quickly taper off early Friday evening as the front moves 
east of the area. A low amplitude upper trough will cross the area Sat 
as an upper low moves from the Great Lakes into New England. At the 
surface...high pressure builds in briefly before a weak back door cold 
front approaches from the north by the end of the day. The result 
will be dry weather and mostly sunny skies. Lows will range from near 
normal to 5 degrees above normal. Highs will be 5 to 10 degrees 
above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 240 PM EDT Wednesday...the extended part of the forecast starts with 
a deep-layer shortwave ridge translating across the region. This 
should bring fair and mild weather. However...the models have been 
trading off run to run as to whether a back door cold front crosses 
the region...bringing with it cooler and potentially cloudy weather 
in the form of cold air damming. For now I stayed with the warmer 
and drier ec solution. 


By Monday precipitable water/S begin to increase on the GFS and low level isentropic 
upglide and upslope flow develops. The European model (ecmwf) is a little 
slower...though it has basically the same solution. Again...there 
isn/T much to disagree with concerning the wpc grids and I have 
mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers. Instability will be 
limited and only a small chance of thunderstorms is expected. By Monday 
night and Tuesday the GFS precipitable water/S increase to almost 1.75 inches and 
there is a considerable increase in the low level flow. We should also be 
under strong upper divergence as a upper tropospheric jet maximum shifts 
eastward under a broad upper low that will be centered over 
Missouri. The potential exists for heavy rain later Monday into 
Tuesday. There may also be a severe threat...though the moist 
worked-over airmass and generally veered low level flow doesn/T seem 
conducive to the high end severe threat that will affect the plains 
with the system over the weekend. Of course it is still quite early 
to get too cute with the chances of severe weather for the Monday/Tuesday 
part of the forecast. 


Confidence in the day 7 part of the forecast is low as there will be 
several chunks of short wave energy embedded within the broad upper 
low that will slowly cross into the eastern Continental U.S.. all the models 
agree that there will be considerable downstream blocking...so the 
trough should definitely park over the region for a few days. 
However...depending on the timing and how advective individual short 
waves are...there might be a chance for some organized severe 
weather with the cooling heights. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Wednesday through Monday/... 
kclt and elsewhere...VFR. The center of Canadian high pressure 
located over the Great Lakes region this afternoon will likely split 
tonight...with the southern center reaching the Carolina coast by 
18z Thursday. This pattern will yield veering winds through the 
period...ranging from northwest this afternoon to southeast by Thursday afternoon. 
Wind speeds may remain around 10 kts until sunset this 
evening...becoming light NE to calm tonight...then increasing 5 to 
10 kts Thursday morning. Few cirrus clouds and condensation trails expected on 
Thursday. 


Outlook...another cold front with potential for showers/thunderstorms is 
then expected to cross the region Friday...drying out by Saturday.
