NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
244 PM EDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
northwest flow will keeps clouds and isolated showers across the 
North Carolina mountains tonight...with dry conditions elsehwere. 
High pressure returns for the rest of the week and continues into 
the the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 240 PM EDT Tuesday...high amplitude upper trough continues to 
swing through the east/central Great Lakes region. Meanwhile at the 
surface...a weak cyclone sliding southeast into the midatlantic 
pushes a cold front southward across western NC and into portions of 
northeast Georgia and the western upstate. High pressure building to the 
west will continue pushing east effectively increasing pressure 
gradient forces across the entire forecast area this afternoon. This 
combined with a deepening mixed layer will yield gusty conditions 
through the remainder of the afternoon before subsiding after 
sunset. That said...channeling effects and continued moderate northwest 
flow aloft will yield persistent gusts through the the overnight 
across the western NC mountains. As for precipitation chances...carried 
earlier forecast isolated probability of precipitation across the northern mountains this 
evening/overnight due to weak upslope flow potential. Moisture will 
likely remain trapped beneath a developing inversion overnight 
allowing for Mountain Valley stratus formation. Conditions will 
improve on Wednesday as the pressure gradient slowly relaxes and 
upper trough ejects to the east. Above mentioned high pressure will 
continue advecting overhead with upper heights also rising leading 
to a dry forecast. Despite the frontal passage and weak cold advection 
pattern...not expecting temperatures to cool substantially. However 
forecast does feature both maximum/min temperatures through the period a 
few degrees below normal. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
as of 205 PM EDT Tuesday...the deep upper low along the middle-Atlantic 
coast will move northeast allowing short wave ridging to develop over 
the southeast states on Thursday. A short wave over the northern plains is 
forecast to dive quickly southeast and move into the Middle-Atlantic States 
late Friday. The 12z GFS has trended faster...farther north and less 
amplified with the upper wave for Friday as opposed to the 00z ec 
and now the 12z CMC which are slower and close off an upper low over 
the Ohio Valley. The only issue with this system is whether the 
upper forcing and northwest upslope flow will be enough to sqeeze out any 
light showers over the northern mountains Friday afternoon. The 12z 
GFS/NAM support maintaining a dry forecast for the mountains on 
Friday with perhaps just some middle-high level cloudiness. Hence... 
will keep mentionalb epops out of the forecast. 


Backing up in time...with the deamplifying flow and rising heights 
over the region on Thursday...temperatures should rebound but still remain 
shy of climatology. Wednesday night will be a chilly with middle 30s common over 
the mountains and even some pockets of upper 30s possible in 
Piedmont. Pockets of freezing temperatures are likely in the little Tennessee 
Valley where the frost/freeze program has ended. Winds especially in 
the central/northern mountains look to stay high enough to preclude 
widespread frost formation and freezing temperatures. Maximum temperatures on Friday 
are forecast to warm a couple more degrees in the downslope flow. 
Deep layered dry air should allow for generally clear conditions Wednesday 
night through Thursday night...with some just patchy high clouds on 
Friday ahead the upper wave. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 205 PM Tuesday...guidance in general agreement for the medium 
range. An upper trough crosses the area Friday night leaving northwest flow over 
the area through sun. Upper ridge builds into the area Monday...then ridge 
axis slides east on Tuesday...with next potential weather system remaining 
west of the area until after this period. Cannot rule out some rain showers 
across the mountains Sat night as the trough moves through...but guidance blend 
keeps forecast dry. A dry cold front brushes the area Sat night...then 
high pressure builds in sun and slowly slides east Monday and Tuesday. Near 
normal temperatures on Sat rise a little above normal through the period... 
while lows start out a little below normal and rise to a little 
above normal through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...VFR conditions will prevail through the period. Dry cold 
front will slide through the region this afternoon leading to 
increasing low level cloudiness across the NC Piedmont. 
Likewise...increasing pressure gradient and deepened mixed layer 
will yield gusty northwesterly veering flow at the surface. 
Thus...initialized taf with west-northwest winds at 06kts under few low cumulus and 
high level cirrus. Increased sky by middle afternoon to scattered levels 
with a 4hr tempo for bkn045 ceilings. Conditions improve behind the 
front this evening with skies scattered to sky clear with gusty winds giving way 
to sustained 6-10kt northwest flow. 


Elsewhere...much the same as kclt above as VFR conditions will 
prevail at all sites with the possible exception of IFR/MVFR ceilings 
overnight at kavl. All sites were initialized with gusty west-northwest winds 
as the weak/dry cold front slides through the region. Few/scattered low 
level cumulus is featured for skies at all sites through the afternoon 
with improvement forecast by 00z aside for at kavl. As for 
kavl...moisture pooling along the terrain amongst northwest flow pattern 
will likely become trapped beneath the developing inversion leading 
to possible Mountain Valley stratus overnight. A few guidance 
sources were hinting at possible IFR conditions...however held ceilings 
at low MVFR for this taf issuance through morning. Gusty winds will 
subside with 6-10kt northwest flow prevailing through the overnight at all 
sites except for kavl where channeling yields continued 20-25kt 
gusts through the remainder of the taf cycle. 


Outlook...blustery and cooler for the middle part of the week...then 
warming by weeks end into the weekend as deep layer ridging settles 
in.
