NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1043 PM EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will continue to be in control of the weather 
through early next week. A weak cold front will approach the region 
from the northwest Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
1030 PM EDT update...an upper shortwave was passing overhead as of 
overnight hours with cp surface high pressure centered to our northwest 
ridging into the forecast area. Areas of high clouds have dissipated 
per latest infrared satellite imagery...hence have adjusted sky cover 
accordinly. Expect quiet and chilly conditions to continue overnight 
into tomorrow morning with patch fog possible over portions of the 
SW mountains/valleys before sunrise. 


720 PM EDT update...have made minor adjustments to the sky 
cover/hourly temperatures to account for the latest observation trend. 
Otherwise...the current forecast is on track. 


As of 245 PM EDT Friday...potent upper shortwave approaching the 
region form the northwest will continue to yield scattered to broken middle/high 
level cirrus this afternoon. As this upper wave ejects eastward 
this evening...surface pressures are expected to rise along this 
heights aloft. Thus...skies are forecast to clear by early morning 
allowing for abundant radiational cooling regionwide. These cool 
temperatures combined with calm winds will yield frost conditions 
across the high terrain of northwest NC...to include Buncombe County 
and the outskirts of Asheville proper. Elsewhere...temperatures 
will drop into the lower to middle 30s across the Southwest Mountains 
and portions of northeast Georgia while the majority of the upstate and 
NC Piedmont hold in the lower 40s. Heights aloft will continue to 
rise on Saturday effectively reinforcing the surface ridge over the 
southeast. Further west...broad upper ridge will slide east out of 
the Southern Plains and into the midsouth by periods end. As a 
result...temperatures on Saturday will return to at or just above 
normal levels as sunny skies prevail. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday/... 
as of 200 PM Friday...a weak short wave will cross the area Sat night 
pushing through a weak cold front. There will be enough low level 
moisture with this system to combine with the upslope northwesterly flow to 
produce isolated rain showers along the Tennessee border. There should be quite a 
bit of clouds across the mountains...even where rain showers do not develop. 
Breezy to windy conditions will develop as well...but gusts should 
remain below advisory level even across the higher elevations. The 
clouds will diminish through the day sun...but breezy conditions will 
linger. Elsewhere...some clouds may spill out of the mountains and across 
the NC foothills and Piedmont...but mostly clear skies should prevail. 
There could even be some low end gusts outside of the mountains temperatures 
will be above normal. 


On Monday...a broad 500 mb ridge will build across the eastern Continental U.S. While 
surface high pressure moves across the southeastern Continental U.S.. southerly winds will 
develop and thicknesses will be on the rise. This will lead to 
mostly clear skies and well above normal highs...after lows a few 
degrees above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Friday/... 
as of 215 PM Friday...upper ridging atop the southeast Continental U.S. Looks like it 
will hang on into Tuesday...continuing our stretch of dry weather. 
Southwesterly low level flow is prognosticated to boost maximum temperatures to above climatology 
values. It remains to be seen on just how quickly frontal zone 
moisture will initially affect the mountains on Wednesday with the op GFS 
slower than earlier solutions. At this point...token small shower 
chances will be limited to mainly the NC mountains Wednesday. 


A little more uncertainty creeps into the forecast for the latter half 
of the period with aforementioned frontal zone sagging into the County warning forecast area 
on Thursday. At least a limited amount of forcing for showers will 
linger into Friday before l/WV trough axis rotates through at the 
end of the period. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...expect VFR conditions to continue through 
00z sun at all terminals. Calm to light northwest/NE winds should persist 
overnight into tomorrow morning. Winds will then veer to the SW/west-southwest 
by early tomorrow afternoon...around 16z Sat in response to an 
approaching dry cold front from the northwest. Otherwise...conditions 
should remain dry under the cool surface high pressure. 


Outlook...deep layer ridging will dominate the pattern through the 
first part of the work week leading to quiet weather and a low 
probability of flight restrictions. 


&& 


Gsp watches/warnings/advisories... 
Georgia...none. 
NC...frost advisory from 2 am to 9 am EDT Saturday for ncz033-049- 
050-053-501-503-505. 
SC...none.
