NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
929 am EST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Synopsis... 
surface high pressure will slowly cross the forecast area through 
the weekend...and even as an upper level disturbance spawns strong 
low pressure off the Carolina and Georgia coast...our area is 
expected to remain dry. A cold front will push through the region 
on Monday...ushering in below normal temperatures and an increase 
of moisture into the middle of next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 920 am...visible satellite imagery shows quite a bit of 
middle/high cloudiness that was delaying the expected rate of warmup. 
This is not really an issue for the sky cover forecast...which has a 
good handle on the situation. However...the temperature trend needs to be 
adjusted downward to account for it. Not ready to give up on the 
high temperature forecast just yet. Otherwise...the day should be relatively 
quiet as high pressure at the surface weakens across the region while an 
upper low moves east along the Gulf Coast. 


The upper low stays close to the Gulf Coast as it moves east and 
reaches the Atlantic coast overnight. Although deep and strong 
forcing will be associated with the upper low...it remains well 
south of the County warning forecast area. The associated surface low will remain well south of 
the area as well. This keeps low level moisture and isentropic lift 
south of the area as the low level flow remains northeasterly. The 06z NAM 
has come in much farther north and west with precipitation than the 
previous run...and most other guidance. Have kept forecast dry for now. 
Expect some lingering clouds over the area...especially along and 
south of I-85. Lows will be near or slightly below normal. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 315 am Saturday...rapid cyclogenesis will occur over the Gulf 
Stream in response to tight closed upper low moving off the Georgia/SC 
coast. Deterministic models still keep any quantitative precipitation forecast with this bombing 
system south and east of the County warning forecast area...with the sref probability of precipitation implying 
only a very near miss for our lower Piedmont zones. I will maintain 
sub-schc pop. The exceptionally strong gradient around the bombing 
low will keep a breezy and somewhat gusty northerly flow across our 
area during the day. Temperatures will edge a bit higher /just above climatology/ 
with downslope warming probably offset by restricted heating under 
the wind. 


Coming quickly on the heels of the departing offshore low will 
be a broad upper cyclone pushing south out of Canada Sun night 
into Monday. An wave embedded in the circulation and associated vorticity 
lobe will reach the southern Appalachians Monday morning...with the core of 
the trough reaching the Ohio Valley early Tuesday. Strong q-vector 
convergence is seen over the area ahead of this feature...along with 
fairly deep moisture even east of the mountains...piquing our interest 
since we Don/T get moisture with these fast-moving shortwaves every 
time they occur. NAM and ec are a little more exciting than the GFS 
in that they delay the lobe a few hours...thus bringing the better 
qg forcing later in the day...when the falling heights aloft will 
have allowed lapse rates to steepen enough for some surface-based 
convection to be possible. As usual the NAM SBCAPE values are 
notably higher than the GFS...though the GFS in this case could be 
impacted by the different timing of the wave. Most temperature guidance 
just keeps afternoon temperatures too warm to expect snow showers east of the 
mountains during the peak of the convective potential. Any convective 
cells would have to be pretty robust to produce rates capable of 
rapid wet-bulbing necessary to overcome the dry air and relatively 
warm temperatures below the cloud layer. Continued presence of the trough 
and potentially a second embedded shortwave arriving Monday night 
do suggest a slow tapering of probability of precipitation at that time...and by evening 
temperatures cool enough that I included a rain/snow mention for the 
Piedmont...with no accumulation. The ground would probably still 
be too warm anyway. 


For the mountains...during the day Monday a pretty good setup for northwest 
flow snow will develop...particularly when winds veer slightly the 
wake of the first shortwave. On account of the very cold air working 
in...temperature and moisture profiles look good for snow crystallization 
and light but steady accumulation is expected. This will continue 
into Tuesday morning with little change seen in the profiles. Once the 
Monday period enters the range of the convection-allowing guidance 
we will be able to refine totals a little more confidently...and 
a Winter Storm Watch or Winter Weather Advisory could be issued. Temperatures 
will bottom out a category or two below climatology for Tuesday morning. Sub-zero 
wind chills are expected in the highest elevations...and that may 
be wrapped into any winter products. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of early Saturday morning...no dramatic changes from previous 
package in the medium range. From Tuesday into at least early 
Thursday the forecast will revolve...no pun intended...around the deep 
eastern Continental U.S. Upper trough and the vorticity lobes encircling it. 
Westerly upslope flow into the Appalachians will allow periods of 
snow to continue near the Tennessee border...with moisture becoming 
increasingly shallow Wednesday...implying they will taper off by that 
time. For the area east/south of the Blue Ridge...as is to be 
expected there remains run-to-run variation in timing of the vorticity 
lobes...and in the fine details that might allow snow showers. 
850-700mb lapse rates under the trough will likely be slightly 
weaker Tuesday...but still marginally favorable for surface-based 
convection. The best shot at any Piedmont accums in this period does 
appear to be Tuesday afternoon...though with favored model blend...maximum temperatures 
should still be too warm for accumulating snow outside the mountains 
same wet-bulb concerns exist Tuesday as noted for Monday in the short-range 
discussion. That is...accumulation east of the mountains is unlikely 
overall and would probably be spotty. 


Tuesday night...surface low pressure moves from the eastern Great Lakes 
to New England and a high moves from the Canadian prairie into 
the Midwest. Progression of these features brings a reinforcing 
shot of cold air for Wednesday...making it the coldest day of the 
period...and also bringing the greatest potential for impactful 
gusts and wind chills. Heights will finally increase Wednesday night 
and Thursday as the trough axis moves offshore. The modifying high 
will settle over the southeast to end the week. Temperatures do moderate 
as it does so. Next wave in the polar circulation does dive across 
the Great Lakes Friday night...and an Atlantic coastal low develops 
on both GFS/ec. However they differ on whether any precipitation will 
develop over land or event this far south...so will not advertise 
any precipitation chances east of the mountains at this time. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will continue through the 
period. High clouds will remain across the area through the day with 
some middle cloud moving in this afternoon and continuing overnight... 
especially for the I-85 taf sites. The 06z NAM has come in much 
farther north and west with precipitation than the previous run...and most 
other guidance. Given the big change...did not follow that trend and 
kept precipitation and restrictions out of kclt for now. North to NE wind 
continues through the period...with northerly wind at kavl. 


Outlook...weak high pressure will remain across the region through 
the weekend. A strong upper air disturbance could bring enough 
moisture to wring out a few rain or snow showers on Monday.
