NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
356 am EST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Synopsis... 
a broad and moist area of low pressure will slowly cross the region 
through Wednesday night. Canadian high pressure will then build in 
Thursday and remain through the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 315 am...deep upper trough with embedded cyclone now sits 
over virtually the entire eastern Continental U.S.. a kink in the circulation 
is swinging across eastern KY/TN...and a broad area of light snow 
extends from near Knoxville to near Pittsburgh ahead of it. Some 
of this moisture and westerly low level flow will continue to intercept 
the southern Appalachians through the morning. Based on the few surface observation 
and webcams available from near The Spine of the mountains...the 
accumulate since snow began yesterday is generally under 2 inches. Peak 
rates from this phase of the event have already occurred. Though 
snow will continue today...winds are expected to back and upper 
forcing to weaken as that shortwave kink move east of the chain...so 
the upslope forcing will weaken accordingly. Short range guidance 
seems to have picked up on this as the consensus is that rates will 
slow...and a lull in snow will occur during the day. Winds become 
more favorable again by this evening...and another lobe of the 
trough will pass as well providing a boost aloft. Thus the snow 
should pick back up this evening...this also backed up by short 
range guidance. While I feel the higher-res guidance is doing a 
good job with the trends...I am reluctant to use its relatively 
high quantitative precipitation forecast...which was overdone Monday. We will let the Winter 
Storm Warning expire at 12z as expected...then hoist a Winter 
Weather Advisory for the NC mountains plus Rabun County...going through 6 
am tomorrow. We will keep the Wind Chill Advisory as-is given the 
continued cold advection and modest gradient flow still poised to 
bring wind chills from 5 to 15 below zero in the higher elevations 
by daybreak Wednesday. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
as of 335 am Tuesday...northwest flow snow will begin winding down Wednesday as 
as the moisture and wind diminish. Could see another half inch in 
the usual locations before the snow showers turn more to flurries 
then end Wednesday night. Although winds will diminish...they will be high 
enough and temperatures cold enough for high elevation wind chills to fall back 
into the advisory range. Highs across the mountains will be near the 
normal lows...and up to 15 degrees below normal elsewhere. Lows will 
be 10 to 15 degrees below normal. 


A weak clipper system will drop into the area Thursday and east of the 
area Thursday night. Guidance is in disagreement on the amount of moisture 
and any resulting precipitation. Therefore...have kept a dry forecast for now 
as even the wettest model does not have any significant snowfall. 
Thicknesses rise ahead of the clipper bringing a warming trend 
across the County warning forecast area. Highs will /only/ be 10 to 15 degrees below normal 
while lows end up around 10 degrees below normal. With the increase 
in temperatures and relatively light winds...wind chill values should remain 
above advisory levels Thursday night. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
as of 355 am Tuesday...much better agreement in the medium range 
guidance this morning...at least until the end of the period. The 
deep eastern Continental U.S. Trough will remain in place through Sat. Short waves 
rotating through the trough bring an Arctic front across the area with a 
return of a very cold air mass. There could be some light northwest flow 
snow behind the front...but it looks to be less than advisory level 
snowfall for now. Highs Friday rise a couple of degrees from Thursday ahead 
of the Arctic front...then drop precipitously through sun behind the 
front. In fact...highs sun will be near the normal lows for this 
time of year...with lows up to 15 to 20 degrees below normal. With 
the cold temperatures and increasing winds behind the front...very low wind 
chill values will return as well. High elevation advisory level wind 
chills are possible Friday night...with widespread Mountain Valley advisory 
and high elevation warning level wind chills possible Sat night. 


Guidance disagrees on the potential weather system moving through on 
Monday. The GFS has a weak frontal system moving through from the northwest with 
Little Gulf or Atlantic in flow. The European model (ecmwf) has a strong front moving 
in from the west with strong Gulf inflow. Surface and 850 mb temperatures 
would indicate some snow potential across the mountains and northern tier with 
mainly rain elsewhere. Have gone with a guidance blend and kept pop 
in the chance range for now...with the rain/snow line based on 
surface temperatures. Confidence is low in this portion of the forecast 
with changes likely as it approaches. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...with cyclonic upper flow over the region...and a bit 
of midlevel moisture remaining from earlier...a pocket of VFR 
ceilings has formed over the field. Some light radar returns are seen 
though no surface sites have reported precipitation yet. So a few sprinkles or 
flurries are possible before daybreak with no accumulation...but 
the moisture is prognosticated to diminish as Ops ramp up. Winds will 
be difficult to nail down through much of the period...with near due 
westerly flow expected...and a complex pressure pattern not lending 
much confidence to west-southwest vs west-northwest. Fairly good midlevel lapse rates will 
again allow congested cumulus to develop over a deep mixed layer...which 
is not expected to produce any precipitation though a few brisk gusts 
might result. Bases should lift a bit going into evening. 


At kavl...northwest flow into the mountains will continue to produce 
low clouds and -shsn. Restrictions will be possible at times when 
showers intensify slightly. Little to no change in the pattern is 
seen through the period...so a few flurries may be seen more or less 
continuously...but the chance of accumulation beyond a trace is 
low. Kept a tempo early this am ahead of a shortwave embedded in 
the upper flow...and included a prob30 for much of the day for a 
slight uptick in moisture. Winds stay northwest but frequent gusting is 
likely in the afternoon. 


Elsewhere east of the mountains...sct-bkn stratocu decks are likely to 
come and go much of the period as cyclonic upper flow persists...and 
embedded eddies provide periodic enhancement to lift. Deep mixing 
again will permit gustiness during peak heating today. Winds will 
remain near west...with some variability...but trending toward northwest 
later in the period. 


Outlook...several strong upper disturbances embedded in a deep 
upper trough will swing across the area through Wednesday. Moisture 
and cold air will continue to flow into the area during this 
time period. Restrictions will be possible...particularly in the 
mountains where there are high chances of accumulating snow.
