NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
648 am EST Monday Nov 30 2015 

a cool and wet air mass will settle in today in the wake of a back 
door cold front...and persist through Tuesday. Another cold front 
is likely to bring additional rain Wednesday...before dry high 
pressure arrives Wednesday night. 


Near term /through tonight/... 
630 am update...widespread light to moderate rain does continue 
along the southern tier of NC...seemingly becoming oriented more 
distinctly within the baroclinic zone atop The Wedge due to the 
expected weakening of upper divergence. Highest accums in the 
past hour are 0.3 to 0.4 inch. Short range guidance for the most 
part shows the rain remaining somewhat spotty the rest of the 
morning...and beginning to shift northward this afternoon. Certainly can/T 
rule out some pockets of 0.25 to 0.5 inch per hour rates but it does 
not look like Hydro threat will increase significantly this morning. 

This morning...high pressure centered over the St Lawrence Valley 
continues to ridge down the East Coast...in a cold air damming 
configuration. A broad baroclinic zone extends along the southern fringe 
of the high...with warm advection atop the cad wedge aided by a 
weak surface low over Tennessee. Upper divergence is also present over 
the area at this time...this associated with right rear quadrant of jet streak which 
will move off the middle-Atlantic coast this morning. The divergence 
accordingly is shown to diminish through the day. The high will shift 
off the New England coast today...as deep closed upper low moves 
through the Central Plains. As these features move the baroclinic zone 
begins to focus north of our area...though low level upglide remains 
more or less constant until winds veer tonight in response to the 
low lifting toward the western Great Lakes...leaving only shallow lift. 

The most significant concern for the near term /and really through 
midweek/ is the degree of Hydro issues that will result. Most 
guidance peaks rainfall rates in the first half of the day today 
while the deepest upglide/moisture is still enhanced by middle to upper 
level dynamic lift. Rates appear to remain similar to those being 
seen in the heavier pockets early this morning...0.2 to 0.3 inches 
per hour. While several hours of such rates will likely produce 
notable responses on rivers...and perhaps even some minor issues in 
low lying areas...currently the setup does not appear primed for 
widespread or flash flooding. We will maintain heavy rain wording 
in the severe weather potential statement but do not meet criteria for a Flood Watch. Furthermore 
rates are expected to taper off this afternoon...allowing a lull 
tonight before forcing increases again prior to the eventual frontal passage. 

Wedge will still be in the building phase today...with temperatures 
remaining steady or falling slightly as the day GOES on over most 
of NC...values being mainly in the lower to middle 50s. Portions of 
the upstate and NE Georgia will remain outside the boundary and will 
see temperatures warm into the 60s. Temperatures will remain nearly steady 
tonight...though mins will be on the order of 15 degrees above 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 320 am Monday...the main problem through the short range looks 
like it will be associated with the passage of the cold front on 
Wednesday. A deep upper low moving steadily from the northern 
plains...across the upper MS river basin...to the Great Lakes on 
Tuesday and Wednesday will help to build a downstream ridge that 
keeps a SW flow aloft. The front will have some difficulty making 
eastward progress as a result. Expect precipitation production to lift northward 
Tuesday morning as a remnant boundary drifts back northward...so the 
precipitation chance has been cut back over the upstate and southern Piedmont. 
This will be short lived as the cold front inches closer from the 
west. By Tuesday night...the better upper forcing and deeper 
moisture will drift across the NC mountains have raised the precipitation 
chances into the categorical range over the mountains to account for 
this. The models suggest the best forcing will lift NE and out of 
the region on Wednesday as the front finally slides across the mountains 
and then east of the forecast area by evening. As it stands right now... 
there does not appear to be enough of a threat of heavy rain over a 
short enough time period to support issuing a Flood Watch for 
Tuesday night and Wednesday. The front makes its way to the east on 
Wednesday evening...so precipitation chances taper off quickly to the east. 
As for temperatures...the most important change was to the high on 
Tuesday...as it appears that cold air damming will break down early 
enough to allow temperatures to climb higher over the southern part of the 
forecast area. 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 315 am Monday...the latest model runs show surface high 
pressure building into the region on Thursday as a cold front moves 
off the southeast coast. A blocking pattern develops late in the 
week with an upper low closing off over the southern/central 
Appalachians. However...any surface reflection of low pressure 
develops along the front well off the coast on Friday...such that no 
precipitation is seen inland. This appears to be a drier trend in the new 
model runs. Have opted to remove the slight chances of precipitation that 
creep in around the southern/eastern edge of the forecast area for the weekend 
based on the model trend. Temperatures still look they will be below normal 
for the period. 


Aviation /12z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...tricky forecast for this morning as cold air damming takes 
its time becoming established across the area. IFR ceilings are very 
nearby apparently due to saturated low levels resulting from 
persistent rain. The actual wedge boundary appears to be hung up 
north of I-40...but is expected to push southward later today and bring 
a steady IFR ceiling lasting through Tuesday morning. Periods of rain mainly will 
occur today...causing minor visibility concerns...and though some chance 
does exist through tonight rates at that time are not expected 
to be enough to cause restrictions on their own. Guidance is 
nearly unanimous on low IFR ceilings and IFR visibility from fog developing 
tonight. Expect prevailing northeasterly winds...near due east at times today. 

Elsewhere...warm upglide in developing cad regime is the story 
at all taf sites...enforcing restrictions around the region. The 
Wedge boundary is expected to push southward this afternoon...and 
some improvement may briefly come in the late morning prior to its 
entrenchment. However ceilings will likely stay IFR to low MVFR even 
if that occurs. A lull in forcing should allow slowing rain 
rates going into the aftn/evening...but ceilings and visibility will crash 
tonight. Mainly NE winds over the Piedmont and southeast at kavl. 

Outlook...unsettled conditions and associated restrictions will 
continue Tuesday into Wednesday before a cold front crosses the 
area midweek to bring drying.
