NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
941 am EDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
weak high pressure builds in today through Monday behind...as low 
pressure drifts east of the area. A cold front will cross the region 
on Tuesday...followed by dry high pressure for Wednesday and 
Thursday. Another cold front is expected to cross the region on 
Friday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 935 am EDT Sunday....9 am temperatures were running a good 5 
degrees warmer than prognosticated. Considering the clearing skies and the 
warm start...I populated maximum temperatures with the mav MOS guidance which 
raises the maximum temperatures 3 to 5 degrees today...with the greatest 
increase over the NC mountains. 


As of 645 am EDT...all lingering deformation zone light rain has 
dissipated southeast of Charlotte...so probability of precipitation have been removed on the 
latest update. Otherwise...water vapor imagery shows the swirling 
upper low moving over the offshore waters east of Savannah this 
morning. As this upper vortex moves farther offshore today...ridging 
will build in from the west. Gradual scattering of the clouds will 
allow temperatures to rebound despite the lingering surface high pressure ridge 
remaining in place. The NAM has more easterly flow moisture at 850 
mb tonight...but the preferred GFS/ecm Camp keep the moisture 
confined more to the coastal plain. Expect maxes in the 60s this 
afternoon and mins in the 40s tonight. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 3 am EDT Sunday...the shallow upper ridge will move more 
squarely over the region on Monday...while surface high pressure slowly 
weakens. Anticipate maxes to rebound to near or slightly above 
climatology. The next upstream trough axis ejecting eastward from the 
plains will approach the Appalachians Monday night and cross the 
forecast area on Tuesday along with an attendant cold front. Instability 
will bubble up in Piedmont sections to support pre/frontal afternoon thunderstorms and rain 
Tuesday...but shear profiles appear too weak for much of a severe 
threat. Shower chances will end quickly Tuesday evening...with min temperatures 
falling into the upper 30s at some higher ridge tops early Wednesday 
morning. However...no frost or freeze is expected. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
as of 300 am Sunday...a sharp upper ridge axis will cross the area 
Thursday....followed by another potent shortwave trough...which will 
lift NE into the Great Lakes on Friday. At the surface...dry high pressure 
builds in from the north Wednesday and Thursday...gradually shifting 
southeast of the area to allow an increasing return flow atop the 
County warning forecast area by Friday. Low pressure deepens over the western Great Lakes 
Thursday into Friday...with a trailing cold front pushing across the 
Ohio/Tennessee valleys. Models are in good agreement on the front pushing through 
the County warning forecast area on Friday with a little more instability/shear and forcing to 
work with compared to the front that is expected to cross on 
Tuesday. Still...it does look like moisture will still be somewhat 
limited...and that far out in the extended...the severe weather threat is 
still uncertain. The front should push through the area by early 
Saturday...with dry weather. Temperatures look to be a category or two cooler 
than Tuesday for both Wednesday and Thursday...which is near normal. 
Then temperatures warm back above normal for Friday and Saturday. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...with all deformation zone light rain safely southeast of the 
terminal area at issuance time...only issue will be any lingering 
VFR ceilings. Expect steady north to NE flow this morning...but with 
increasing gusts above 20 knots with mixing through the course of the 
day. Any morning VFR ceilings will scatter before afternoon. Will continue to 
lean toward drier GFS/ecm versus NAM showing 850 mb moisture on 
easterly flow tonight. If no stratocumulus arrive on the easterly 
flow...there is a small chance of visibility restrictions in fog toward 
daybreak Monday. 


Elsewhere...pesky stratocumulus layer at 6 to 8 knots will steadily 
thin and scatter this morning...with mainly higher clouds left 
through the rest of the day. Expect occasional gusts on NE flow at 
the upstate taf sites today...especially picking up with mixing by 
late morning. The NAM is more aggressive with VFR stratocumulus 
advecting back into the region on easterly flow tonight...but the 
drier GFS/ecm solutions are preferred. 


Outlook...dry high pressure will develop through Monday. A fairly wet 
frontal system...with Piedmont thunderstorms...is expected on 
Tuesday...with drying returning middle week.
