NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
246 PM EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level system will cross western North Carolina early 
Thursday. Dry high pressure will return Friday and linger into the 
weekend. Expect a cold front to slowly cross our region from the 
north early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 215 PM EST...a scattered to broken lower level stratocumulus 
field persists in the lingering boundary layer moisture behind the 
departed upper wave and jet streak. Attention now turns to the next 
upstream trough axis digging through the central MS River Valley 
this afternoon. The forecast models agree fairly well in bringing a 
strong but channeled vorticity maximum with this wave through the 
region overnight...with moist northwest flow developing in it/S wake. The 
deep layer qg forcing should be maximized mainly around 06z to 
09z...and have the greatest impact across western NC. There is also 
fairly good consensus that the thermal profiles will wet bulb down 
to support snow across the mountains...and even into the lower 
valleys...during the early morning hours. Moisture should be just 
deep enough to support snow Crystal growth...but that may not even 
be an issue if convective showers form as a pool of 7 to 8 degree c/km 
lapse rates crosses the region overnight. This instability...along 
with a +2 pv unit saturated geostrophic epv maximum...may well permit 
some snow showers to break containment east of the Blue Ridge early 
Thursday morning. Brief snow shower activity will thus be possible across 
the Interstate 40 corridor into the Piedmont. However...the duration 
of this activity should be brief enough for little to no 
accumulations to develop with mins generally in the middle 30s. 


The precipitation focus will then steadily shift back to the western NC 
mountain counties near the Tennessee border Thursday morning as a more traditional northwest 
upslope flow snow situation sets up. Anticipate the deepest surface to 
850 mb moisture through 18z...with upslope moisture gradually waning 
through Thursday afternoon. The current Winter Weather Advisory looks well 
placed. Breezy to windy conditions will develop in the higher 
elevations during the peak cold advection Thursday...as the pressure gradient 
tightens behind the departing wave. Expect chilly 30s to lower 40s 
maxes in the mountains...but lower 50s are more likely in the eventual 
downslope across the foothills/Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
at 230 PM EST Wednesday...on Thursday evening...a deamplifying upper 
trough axis will be near the East Coast...while a ridge will be 
upstream near the West Coast. A channeled upper vorticity lobe rounding 
the base of the trough will be over central NC...moving away from 
our area. The upper trough will continue to deamplify on Friday as 
the trough axis moves off the East Coast...while weak shortwave 
energy moves across our area from the northwest. By Saturday a nearly zonal 
flow will exist over the southern tier of state by Saturday. 


At the surface...some lingering northwest flow snow showers will persist 
along the Tennessee border Thursday night in the pressure gradient between 
a departing coastal low and high pressure in the MS River Valley. 
Accumulations with this diminishing activity will be minimal. The 
high pressure arrives on Friday...when the models suggest some upper 
level cloud cover spreading over the mountains form the west. This 
cloud cover will extend east across most of the area by Friday 
evening...gradually moving north of the area by late Saturday. 


Temperatures will run around 12 degrees to so below normal on 
Thursday night through Friday night as the cool high pressure 
arrives...despite rising heights aloft. By Saturday...high 
temperatures will rise to within 3 degrees or so of normal as warm 
advection sets up on the back side of the surface high and heights 
aloft continue to rise. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 215 PM EST Wednesday...a weak upper ridge axis will cross the 
region Sat night through sun...with a weak positively tilted upper 
trough passing overhead on Tuesday. Another weak upper trough is 
forecast to cross the region by Wednesday. 


At the surface...high pressure centered over the western Atlantic 
will continue to ridge westward into the forecast area Sat night 
through at least Monday bringing mostly dry conditions with good warm air advection 
southwesterly flow to our County Warning Area. Meanwhile...a surface cold front extending 
from the Great Lakes region to the western Gulf Sat night will 
slowly push southeastward into the southern Appalachians through Monday 
night. Hence...have inherited dry weather Sat night and sun for most 
locations. Probability of precipitation then ramp up into the 20/30s over the mountains zones on 
Monday as the front reaches the Tennessee borderline. The front will then 
slip trough the forecast area Monday night with a cold air damming 
setting up by Tuesday as a Canadian high pressure over the Great Lakes 
region slides east into the northeast states. Probability of precipitation remain on the low 
side given the lack of deep moisture/upper forcing. Wednesday...the new 
12z European model (ecmwf) indicates that another cold front will approach from the 
northwest and crosses the area Wednesday night into Thursday morning while the GFS 
keeps the cad through the period. Give the uncertainty...have kept the 
probability of precipitation in the slight chance range. Temperatures will be around 2-5 
degrees above normal sun/Monday and near normal Tue/Wed. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Wednesday through Monday/... 
at kclt...as the deeper layer cloud shield has cleared the area this 
afternoon...heating has allowed fairly widespread MVFR level ceilings to 
redevelop...and this should be the case more often than not at kclt 
through at least 21z. Improvement to VFR is likely this 
evening...but the approaching strong upper shortwave could allow 
MVFR ceilings to form again at times overnight. There is also a 
possibility of showers in the vicinity late tonight with the passing 
wave...possibly even mixing with snow at times just north of 
kclt...but all of this is too low confidence to mention in the taf. 
Expect winds to toggle west-southwest or SW this evening and then return 
sharply northwest and become gusty behind the passing upper wave circa 16z 
Thursday...with drying ensuing. 


Elsewhere...heating interacting with lingering boundary layer 
moisture this afternoon is producing mainly sct025 bkn035 on 
average...though tempo MVFR cannot be ruled out. Clouds associated 
with the upstream shortwave moving rapidly east through the MS River 
Valley will start spreading back in quickly this evening. Anticipate 
a return to MVFR ceilings from kavl to khky 06z to 09z...with tempo MVFR 
possible but not likely farther south. Will also feature a vcsh 
mention at kavl and khky...which should be snow at kavl and could be 
snow under any heavier rates at khky. The upstate sites should 
remain dry through Thursday morning...but isolated showers cannot be ruled 
out. Winds will toggle from northwest to SW through the evening but return 
sharply northwest and gusty behind the wave late in the period. 


Outlook...dry high pressure will set up over the area Friday through 
the weekend. A cold front will approach from the northwest early 
next week.
