NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
139 PM EDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the region today. In its wake...Canadian 
high pressure will move in and dominate the surface pattern through 
midweek leading to well below normal temperatures and pleasant 
conditions. Precipitation chances will ramp back up again on 
Thursday and Friday as Atlantic moisture spreads over the region and 
low level winds become more easterly. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1230 PM...with no echoes currently on radar or upstream of the 
mountains have decided to remove mentionable probability of precipitation for the afternoon 
in the Tennessee border counties. Otherwise...it looks like the cold front 
has edged through the area as winds have shifted to the west/northwest and 
dewpoints have fallen into the middle 60s across the Piedmont. Current 
forecast grids have this well in hand. 


As of 10 am...made some adjustments to increase winds...especially 
over the mountains where some gusts in the 30-40 miles per hour range occurring 
above 4000 feet. Lowered cloud amounts outside the Tennessee border counties 
based on latest satellite imagery. Have noted a couple isolated northwest 
flow showers in the northern mountains so will maintain the isolated 
type probability of precipitation there through the day. Just minor adjustments to most 
grids fields. 


As of 600 am EDT Monday...earlier prefrontal shower activity has 
diminished therefore lowered probability of precipitation across the entire region for the 
remainder of the morning. Cold front is currently located across 
the Cumberland Plateau and is still on schedule to enter the 
mountains over the next few hours....and continue pushing 
southeast. Probability of precipitation still ramp up to low end slight chance levels by 
late afternoon and evening across the high terrain as upslope 
shower probabilities increase. Tweaked temperatures and dewpoints 
to reflect latest observations and left the remainder of the 
forecast as is. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 330 am EDT Monday...broad upper trough continues to dominate the 
pattern aloft while surface cyclone centered over the eastern Great 
Lakes spreads a cold front through the Ohio Valley. Line of 
prefrontal convection continues to weaken and slide southeast across 
the region as expected. The cold front is still forecast to 
push into the mountains this morning before spilling into the 
foothills/Piedmont regions by early afternoon. Extreme near term 
portion of the forecast features east/west oriented band of 
categorical probability of precipitation associated with above mentioned convective line. 
Probability of precipitation will taper into the late morning hours across the entire region 
as the front slides in and Canadian high pressure begins to build. 


Forecast will reintroduce slight chance probability of precipitation by late afternoon 
through the overnight along portions of the NC mountains as moisture 
advects in amongst northwest flow aloft and lifts mechanically. Tightening 
pressure gradient along and behind the front will yield gusty winds 
across the region with some of the higher peaks and ridgetops 
experiencing gusts in excess of 30mph...while 15-20mph gusts are 
expected across the lower elevations. Temperatures this afternoon 
will not suffer much behind the front as highs will reach near 
normal levels. As northerly flow continues through the 
period...expecting temperatures to cool by Tuesday morning where 
lows will fall to below normal levels. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 230 am...deep eastern Continental U.S. Trough remains in place through the 
period...although it does flatten slightly by the end. A series of 
weak short waves rotate through the trough and across the area during 
this time. High pressure slowly slides across the area through the 
period keeping a weak Ely flow over the area. This combined with 
lingering low level moisture may lead to isolated upslope diurnal 
rain showers across portions of the Blue Ridge each afternoon. However... 
any quantitative precipitation forecast will be very light. Thicknesses drop dramatically in the 
cooler air mass leading to highs around 10 degrees below normal each 
day and lows 5 to 10 degrees below normal each night. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Monday/... 
as of 330 am...decent agreement in the medium range. The deep eastern 
Continental U.S. Trough remains in place Thursday...then trough axis retrogrades through 
the weekend ridging over the Atlantic retrogrades toward the East 
Coast. At the surface...high pressure remains ridged over the area through 
the period as a frontal system moves NE to the Atlantic coast by the 
end of the period. A series of low pressure centers will ride up the 
front as well. A moist low level S to southeasterly flow develops in response 
to these systems bringing an increasing chance of showers and 
thunderstorms through the period. Highs will bounce around through the 
period remaining about 10 degrees below normal. Lows follow a 
similar pattern remaining about 5 degrees below normal. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Monday through Saturday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will prevail through the taf 
period at all sites as cold front moves away from the area and 
breezy donwslope winds prevail. Winds will be northwest and gusty through 
the afternoon hours...but diminish after sunset. Winds will 
gradually neer to the north-NE late tonight. 


Outlook...dry high pressure will prevail through midweek. The only 
possible restrictions will be early morning fog in the mountain 
valleys. Moisture will increase by late week as easterly flow 
returns leading to increasing precipitation/fog/stratus chances.
