NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1026 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
moisture will increase on Friday out ahead of an approaching cold 
front. This front...and a strong middle level area of low pressure is 
forecast to track across the region Friday night into Saturday. A 
strong surface low pressure system will develop offshore on 
Saturday...then track quickly north by Saturday night. Circulation 
around the coastal low will bring a Canadian air mass to the region 
into Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 1025 PM...going forecast still on track with mainly light winds 
and mostly clear skies. Have slowed the increase in clouds...but 
still have partly cloudy skies across the mountains by morning given the 
clouds upstream heading this way. Otherwise...updates mainly for 
current conditions. 


As of 745 PM...forecast remains on track with light winds and clear 
skies across the area. Cirrus will be on the increase overnight with 
low and middle clouds increasing Friday. Best chance for any Mountain Valley fog 
will again be the little Tennessee basin. Updates were mainly for current 
conditions. 


As of 425 PM...skies are clear and winds are generally light and 
variable across the County warning forecast area this afternoon. Have updated forecast to show 
these trends and latest observations. Otherwise...little change to 
going forecast. 


At 230 PM EDT Thursday...an upper trough will amplify over the 
eastern USA through Friday...while a ridge upstream progresses from 
the Rocky Mountains to the plains. A shortwave rounding the base of 
this trough will cross the southern Appalachians by daybreak...while 
an upper low closes off over the Great Lakes. This deepening low 
will move into the Ohio River valley by late Friday. 


A nearly stationary front will remain near the Carolina and Georgia 
coasts tonight...then begins moving slowly east on Friday as a 
surface wave moves NE up the boundary. Meanwhile...a surface low 
will fill as it moves from the Southern Plains to the Tennessee Valley. 
Moisture ahead of this low will reach the southern Appalachians by 
daybreak...but precipitation associated with the system will likely 
not arrive until midday...when a cold front reaches the mountains 
from the northwest. The front moves across our area during the afternoon... 
accompanied by modest precipitation with limited lift along the 
boundary. Very limited instability will be present in the 
Piedmont...and convection cannot be totally ruled out...but 
thunderstorms will not be mentioned at this time. 


The better precipitation will follow the front in the mountains... 
where robust most upslope flow will setup from the northwest. With 
sufficient cold advection behind the front...precipitation will 
change over to a mix of rain and snow at higher elevations during 
afternoon...and all snow on the very highest peaks toward evening... 
but duration appears too short for accumulations before dusk. 


Minimum temperatures will run a few degrees below normal tonight in 
a cool northwest flow behind the coastal front. High temperatures on Friday 
will run around five degrees below normal due to cloud cover and 
precipitation. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
ddhhmm 
wrksht 


As of 230 PM Thursday...12z guidance package remains consistent in 
moving an anomalous upper low rapidly southeast from the Great Lakes into 
the Carolinas on Sat. This low is in the neighborhood of 5 sd's 
below normal. So we do not see this type of system very often. 
Thus...we will be onguard in regard to the unexpected. With the very 
good run to run model consistency...we are confident enough to go 
ahead a upgrade the Winter Storm Watch in the NC mountains to a 
warning for Friday night and Sat...except for Buncombe...northern 
Jackson and Graham counties where a Winter Weather Advisory will be 
issued. 


The very potent compact vortmax/closed 500 mb low will induce 
cyclogenesis east of the Outer Banks during the day on Sat... with a 
deformation zone setting up from central Virginia/NC extending as far west 
as the I-77 corridor on Sat. An associated cold front moving across 
the area Friday night will bring a surge of very cold air with 850 
mb temperatures plummeting to -6 to -8c along the Tennessee line and generally 0 
to -4c across the Piedmont. The cold temperatures aloft along along with the 
rapidly cooling boundary layer will allow rain to change to snow by 
midnight Friday night in the moutnains...with a rain/snow mix 
spreading eastward across the foothills into the I-85 corridor 
toward sunrise on Sat. In the mountains...upslope flow will continue to 
produce snow showers into Sat evening. Storm total snow amounts in 
the Tennessee border counties will be on the order of 4-8 inches with 
possibly as much as 10 inches in the higher peaks of the smokies. 
Other mountains locations will see anywhere from a dusting to up to 
3 inches. 


On Saturday the bombing low along the coast will generate strong 
low level winds on the order of 40-50 kts out of the northwest. Our wind gust 
algorithm hits the upstate and NE Georgia with the highest gusts on the 
order of 35 to 45 miles per hour...which would be below high wind watch 
criteria. Precipitation ends for the most part by Sat evening...except for 
some lingering snow showers in the NC moutnains adjacent to Tennessee. 
Clearing conditions will occur Sat night but atmosphere may stay 
mixed enough to prevent widespread freezing temperatures outside the 
mountains...so no freeze watch for now. Temperatures stay well below climatology 
for sun even with full sunshine. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 100 PM Thursday...medium range models are in decent agreement 
in building deep layered ridging atop the southeast Continental U.S. On Monday and 
translating ridge center offshore on Tuesday. It now looks like maximum 
temperatures will creep back to within 5 degree f of climatology by Tuesday. 
It remains to be seen just how much if any deeper convection develops 
within the warm sector on Wednesday with the best model response 
still west of the mountains by the evening hours. For now...will maintain 
token small or slight shower chances and continue to moderate 
temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt..a light north-northeast wind and increasing cirrus expected overnight. 
Low VFR and middle clouds will increase after daybreak...but expect any 
low VFR ceilings to hold off until either late in the period or after 
the period. The winds will turn southwesterly...but remain generally light 
ahead of an approaching cold front Friday afternoon. Although an 
isolated rain showers is possible late in the period...any significant 
precipitation should hold off until after the period. 


Elsewhere...VFR. Light and variable winds and increasing cirrus 
expected overnight. Low VFR and middle clouds increase through the day Friday 
with low VFR ceilings expected by afternoon at kavl. Winds turn west-southwest Friday 
afternoon ahead of the approaching cold front. However...winds 
remain northerly at kavl. Kavl also has the best chance of seeing any rain showers by 
late in the afternoon. However...chance too low for taf at this time. Isolated 
rain showers possible elsewhere...but any significant precipitation should hold off 
until after the period. 


Outlook...a chance for showers develops Friday evening as a cold 
front moves through. Some restrictions are possible...especially in the 
mountains where even some snow showers are expected Friday night and 
Saturday. 


&& 


Gsp watches/warnings/advisories... 
Georgia...none. 
NC...Winter Storm Warning from 8 PM Friday to 8 PM EDT Saturday for 
ncz033-048>052. 
Winter Weather Advisory from 8 PM Friday to 8 PM EDT Saturday
