NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
221 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will give way to a progressively warmer southwest flow 
of air before a cold front crosses the region on Wednesday. Steadily 
cooler temperatures will be then seen during the latter half of next 
week. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Saturday...the upper pattern continues to be 
highlighted by large 590mb 500 mb ridge centered over the Southern 
Plains while a closed 500 mb low pushes through southern Ontario. At 
the surface...high pressure prevails across the southern/central 
Apps while a weak and rather dry cold front extends along a surface 
trough through the middle Mississippi and western Ohio valleys. As said 
above...models dont indicate much moisture associated with the front 
therefore not expecting much impact on the sensible weather as it 
slides through overnight. That said...low level relative humidity fields are 
elevated to the Point of warranting a few hours of isolate probability of precipitation 
along the Tennessee border amongst the northern NC mnts where weak upslope 
shower potential cant be overlooked. Due to southwesterly backed 
warm air advection flow this afternoon along with abundant radiational 
warming...not expecting any frost/freeze concerns Sunday morning as 
min temperatures are forecast to hold in the upper 40s to lower 50s outside of 
the mountains where 40s will prevail. Sunday will feature drier 
northerly flow ahead of a reinforcing back door front late in the 
day associated with high pressure diving through the Ohio Valley. 
Heights are expected to rise aloft leading to a dry forecast with 
mostly sunny skies prevailing. Temperatures on Sunday will actually 
be slightly warmer than that of today with highs forecast to exceed 
normal levels due to building upper ridge and abundant heating. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 155 PM Sat...upper ridge axis moves across the area Monday and 
off shore Tuesday. At the surface...a weak frontal system over the area 
moves back north as a warm front Sun night with southerly flow developing 
Monday as high pressure moves off shore. A cold front moves into the Tennessee 
Valley late Tuesday...but the forecast remains dry as any precipitation is well to 
our west. However...there will be a slow increase in clouds. Lows 
near normal Sun night rise well above normal Monday night...while highs 
remain nearly steady well above normal each day. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 100 PM Sat...the 25/12 UTC op GFS supportive of wpc extended 
forecast forecasts in the handling of progressive and weakening cold frontal 
zone across the County warning forecast area Wednesday into Wednesday night leading to the chance for 
a round of showers for most places. Medium range model consensus has 
been trending more agressive with respect to the influx of drier and 
less warm air for Thursday. For the latter half of the period... 
expecting pronounced eastern Continental U.S. L/WV trough to develop and 
progessively cooler air to overspread the region. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Saturday through Thursday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will prevail at all sites 
through the taf cycle. Weak cold front approaching from the west 
will pool low level moisture against the western slopes of the high 
terrain leading to low VFR ceilings at kavl by middle/late evening. 
Otherwise...skies will remain mostly clear with the exception of a 
few middle/high level cirrus streaming through. Heights will rise 
behind the front leading to continued clear/sunny skies Sunday 
morning through the period. Winds will back to the southwest ahead 
of the weak frontal passage this afternoon at all sites before increasing and 
veering back to the northwest behind the boundary overnight. By 
morning winds remain elevated and out of northwest through the 
remainder of the taf cycle. 


Outlook...aside for a brief/weak cold frontal intrusion Saturday 
night leading to broken low VFR ceilings across the mountains...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...none. 
SC...none.
