NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
142 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
an unseasonably cold air mass will remain over the region into 
Friday. A subtropical low with deep moisture will develop across the 
southeast states on Friday and Saturday. By early next 
week...temperatures should range close to normal ahead of an 
approaching cold front. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 140 PM EDT Thursday...the afternoon grids are in good shape 
and no changes have been made into the early evening hours. 


As of 1025 am EDT Thursday...still experiencing some cirrus over the 
forecast area as a weak upper wave is passing buy. Sky cover was 
increased a little to account for this...though the rest of the 
forecast is in fine shape. 


As of 645 am...cirrus has overspread the area and will remain through 
the day. Guidance is now in good agreement showing low clouds moving 
into the area from the south this evening and overnight. Sat pictures 
show these clouds along the Georgia/SC coast with a northward trajectory. 
Otherwise...going forecast looks on track...so updates mainly for 
current conditions. 


As of 245 am...high pressure remains ridged into the area from the 
NE today. Rising thicknesses...sun filtering through mostly thin cirrus 
and a moderating air mass will lead to warmer highs today. 
However...they will still be around 10 degrees below normal. Northeasterly 
winds outside of the mountains will become gusty with mixing across the 
upstate and NE Georgia...and possibly parts of NC...by middle morning as 
mixing begins. Gusts should taper of for the afternoon. Winds across 
the mountains will be southerly and could see gusts for the afternoon. 


Although surface winds will remain northeasterly outside of the mountains tonight with 
high pressure remaining in place...low level flow becomes southerly ahead 
of an approaching short wave in the southwesterly upper flow and a developing 
Gulf of Mexico surface low. Guidance now indicates low level moisture 
will move into the area from the south as the short wave approaches 
the area. Lows should be quite a bit warmer than previous nites with 
increasing clouds and moderating air mass. Lows still end up around 
5 degrees below normal...and could lead to patchy frost across the 
NC mountains 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday/... 
as of 240 am Thursday...the GFS and European model (ecmwf) indicate that an amplified 
500 mb trough will ripple over the deep south on Friday. Both solutions 
show the trough closing off over S. Georgia and North. Florida...with the GFS 
north of the European model (ecmwf). At the surface...low pressure will likely organize 
along the Georgia/Florida line...with New England centered high pressure 
ridging across the western Carolinas. There is strong agreement 
with placement of deep moisture and lift along and east of the surface 
and middle level low. However...model agreement is low across the 
western Carolinas...with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) trending wetter across 
the County Warning Area and NAM remaining dry. Based on model trends...I will 
highlight the mountains...upper Savannah River valley...and eastern 
Piedmont with chance probability of precipitation for rain showers. In addition...sky cover will 
likely favor mostly cloudy conditions. A blend of preferred MOS 
guidance supports highs on Friday in the upper 50s. 


Friday night and Saturday...a band of cloud cover and deformation 
forcing may linger across the western Carolinas. This band will 
likely slowly drift eastward through Saturday. The forecast will 
indicate mostly cloudy conditions with schc probability of precipitation Friday 
night...decreasing from west to east during the daylight hours on 
Saturday. Saturday highs are very challenging...with the presence of 
clouds and rain showers will likely impact temperatures by 10 to 15 degrees. At 
this time...I will forecast highs around 5 degrees below normal. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 3 am Thursday...Sunday and Monday...medium range models indicate 
that the middle level closed low will drift east over the western 
Atlantic as middle level ridging increases east of the Mississippi 
River valley. This pattern should result in weak surface high pressure 
and dry air to build west to east across the forecast area Sunday 
and Monday. High temperatures will likely range within 2 to 4 degrees of 
normal. 


On Tuesday...the GFS and European model (ecmwf) indicate that a middle level short wave 
will ripple over the forecast area during the daylight hours. At the 
surface...a weak cold front is timed to sweep across the southern 
appalachian region during the afternoon. Both solutions indicates 
that a field of weak cape will exist along and ahead of the cold 
front. The approach of the middle level short wave and cold front...combined 
with weak instability should yield at least scattered shra/tsra. Dry 
Canadian high pressure should build across the region on Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...latest model runs and guidance are not as 
aggressive in bringing in strato-cumulus overnight. However...there is a 
good cumulus field not too far southwest of the forecast area. I have 
decided to keep the low end VFR ceilings...though I did push them back a 
few hours at all sites. Kclt has about the best chance of seeing a 
deck up around 4kft developing late tonight...at least per the 
guidance. Winds will be east-northeast this afternoon...turning back to NE or even 
north-northeast late tonight as another surge of cooler air moves in from the 
north. As this happens...wind speeds should pick back up to 8 to 10 
kts by around sunrise. 


Outlook...ceiling and visibility restrictions will return Friday 
evening through Saturday as a cold front approaches from the west 
and a low pressure system develops along the coast. Fair and drier 
weather with no restrictions should return for Sunday and Monday.
