NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
436 am EDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will remain in control through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
430 am EDT update...made some minor adjs to the hour/ly temperatures. Gap 
wind into the upstate is still evident on base vel...but surface observation no 
longer support gusty conds. With 850 mb cold air advection decreasing...expect low end 
gusts to be maintained occasionally across the mountain valleys...with 
moderate gusts over the higher terrain. 


As of 230 am...upstream moisture remains shallow across the Ohio 
Valley and eastern Tennessee. Don/T see much more than clouds affecting the western 
NC mountains overnight as northwest/ly mlvl flow remains rather un/energetic. 
There is still a good 850 mb T/gradient atop the NC mountains providing downward 
Omega and moderate gusty conds over the higher terrain. The low level 
flow remains channeled and a gap wind has developed into the northern 
upstate bring low end gusts. 


The synoptic pattern wont change much during the day...with the ulvl 
trough slowly pulling NE while a cp hipres system continues to center 
over the eastern Midwest. With the cp airmass mix...precipitable waters  will drop to 
around 60 percent of normal offsetting much cloud development. 
However...sct/bkn cumulus and stcu will continue across the far western 
zones. The airmass mix will also keep low level thicknesses shallow and 
maximum temperatures will be held about 5 degrees below normal non/mountains and 
around 8-10 degrees below normal mountain valleys where 850 mb cold air advection remains the 
strongest. The far southern zones should see maxes near normal in less 
airmass mixing and good insol. 


The upper pattern remains aligned northwest/ly overnight within a tight 
height field...however the llvls will see a general broadening of 
the p/gradient as high pressure continues to ridge in from the northwest. This 
will allow winds and the surface thermal layer to decouple a little and 
mins will drop a couple degrees below normal. No frost concerns 
overnight as low level mixing remains over the northwest mountain zones...the southern mountains 
could see patchy frost but these counties have already had a freeze 
this fall. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday through Friday night/... 
as of 325 am Wednesday...typically benign middle-autumn weather will 
persist into the weekend...as upper low spins off the northeast 
coast...and the mean eastern long wave trough is reinforced by a 
short wave diving out of the corn belt region Thursday night/Friday. 
Persistent northwest flow should result in periods of stratocu across the 
western mountains through the period...but moisture is expected to remain 
too shallow to support upslope showers. Good radiational cooling 
conditions Friday night will likely result in at least patchy frost and 
pockets of freezing temperatures in the mountains however...mountain zones for which 
frost/freeze products are still being issued will be the least 
likely to get cold...as northwest flow may result in persistent up-valley 
winds overnight...especially in the French Broad valley. Otherwise...temperatures 
will be near normal through the period. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 am Wednesday...global model guidance continues to depict a 
pattern change during the medium range...as a series of strong short 
wave troughs invade the West Coast. This results in establishment of 
a long wave ridge across the central Continental U.S....which progresses to the 
eastern states by the end of the period. Nevertheless...this pattern 
will support persistence of generally dry high pressure across our 
region during much of the period. Chances for a frontal passage may increase 
by the end of the period...as there are signs the ridge may begin to 
flatten during this time. Temperatures will likely creep above normal by 
day 7...as deep but dry SW flow gradually becomes established. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Wednesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conds at all terminals through the 
period. Moderate gradient flow and 850 mb cold air advection will prevail this 
afternoon with winds remaining channeled up the French Broad 
valley. Non/mountain sites will maintain north-northwest/ly winds with a low end gust 
potential this afternoon through 00z at kclt and khky. Kavl will likely 
see higher gusts around 25 kts this afternoon. Below normal precipitable waters  will 
mix in throughout the day keeping skies clear with perhaps few/scattered 
fair weather cumulus at kavl and khky. 


Outlook...quiet weather will continue across the region...as deep 
layer ridging settles in through this weekend.
