NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
636 PM EST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
Canadian high pressure will remain across the region through Monday 
and gradually warm each day. A cold front will then push across the 
forecast area from the north early Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
as of 630 PM...the forecast was still in good shape heading into the 
evening hours. Temperature/dewpt trend looks good for the most part. The 
only minor adjustment was to tweak some Mountain Valley temperatures. 


Remainder of previous discussion... 


The cirrus should increase overnight as upper level moisture increases 
and a weak short wave and upper jet maximum moves through in the developing 
zonal flow. At the surface...high pressure moves slowly off shore through 
the period...bringing calm or light and variable winds tonight then 
increasing southwesterly winds Sat. Lows tonight should be 5 to 10 degrees 
below normal...tempered by the increase in cirrus and rising low 
level thicknesses. Highs will be near normal across the mountains Sat and 
around 5 degrees below normal elsewhere as thicknesses continue to 
rise...faster across the mountains than the Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday night/... 
as of 200 PM EST Friday...the short term period initializes Saturday 
evening amidst deamplified upper flow with surface high pressure 
prevailing across the southeast. Furthermore...surface low pressure 
ejecting over the Great Lakes will make way for Canadian high 
pressure diving through the northern rockies. Warm advection ahead 
of weak cold frontal boundary associated with departing northern low 
will continue across the deep south through the remainder of the 
period. Moist upglide regime across the midsouth will prevail 
through Sunday and into Monday with the primary moisture axis slowly 
advecting eastward with time. 


By Monday morning guidance favors cold advection ramping up across 
the Midwest into the Ohio Valley associated with a reinforcing cold 
front. Isentropic ascent region will shift east ahead of the front 
leading to improved upglide across the southwest NC and northeast Georgia 
mountains by early Monday morning. Models favor increasing coverage 
along the mountains through the day as the cold front approaches 
from the northwest eventually sliding through the Cumberland Plateau 
by periods end. Thus...the forecast will remain dry through Sunday 
with slight chance probability of precipitation being introduced across the southwest NC and 
northeast Georgia mountains Monday morning. Probability of precipitation spread out across the 
entirety of the NC/Georgia mountains through the day with chance level 
probability of precipitation featured by Monday evening. Temperatures will continue to 
moderate through the period with highs topping out nearly 5-10 
degrees above normal for most locations on Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 230 PM EST Friday...latest global models continue to indicate 
that a back door cold front will slip through the forecast area 
through Monday night with a cad setting up by Tuesday as 1043+mb Canadian 
high pressure over the Ohio Valley slides into New England. Both the 
12z GFS and European model (ecmwf) trended a bit wetter...especially over the NC 
zones on Tuesday...in light of upper wave embedded with a series of 
stronger upper disturbances moving through over moist isentropic 
upglide regime. Therefore...have raised probability of precipitation into the solid chance 
range over the northern half of the County Warning Area on Tuesday. Thermal profile per 
12z GFS is supportive of freezing rain Monday night through Tuesday 
morning...mainly areas north of I-40. However...the new 12z European model (ecmwf) 
keeps colder airmass well north of the County Warning Area...suggesting all liquid 
precipitation. Therefore...have not mentioned any frozen precipitation at this 
time. Conditions should dry out by late Wednesday...as weak upper ridging 
build in from the west and the cad erodes in response to an 
approaching cold front from the northwest. The GFS suggests the frontal passage will 
occur on Friday while the European model (ecmwf) is around 24hrs late...occurring on 
Sat. Given the uncertainty...have mentioned slight chance probability of precipitation over 
the pediment with low end chance probability of precipitation over the mountains zones on 
Friday...ramping down toward Friday night. Temperatures on Tuesday should remain 
around 10-15 degrees below normal...with near normal Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR through the period. With the center of 
high pressure east of the area...any remaining light wind will be from 
a SW direction outside the mountains...and channeled from the northwest at kavl. 
Jet streak cirrus will keep some scattered high cloudiness overhead 
overnight. Winds will return from the SW by late morning Saturday 
and just a bit stronger...but still under 10 knots...with the high 
center farther offshore. 


Outlook...low clouds are possible Sunday morning in the moist southerly 
flow ahead of a cold front. The front will slowly slip south across 
the southern Appalachians on Monday. On Tuesday...a strong ridge of 
high pressure will build across the region from the north with 
increasing low level moisture...likely resulting in widespread 
ceiling restrictions through middle week as a cold air damming 
wedge develops.
