NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
235 am EDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
cool and dry high pressure will remain over the region through middle 
week. Moisture and rain chances increase into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 215 am EDT...water vapor satellite imagery shows a 500 mb low 
pressure center closing off over the central Savannah River area 
early this morning. This is permitting moisture to continue to pivot 
northwest across the Piedmont of the Carolinas...particularly toward the 
Interstate 77 corridor. Deep layer qg forcing will be best from kclt 
S and east through the morning hours...then gradually slip eastward through 
the day. Several adjustments have been made to the forecast. The 
clouds required a downward adjustment of a couple of degrees to afternoon 
maxes in most areas. Probability of precipitation over Piedmont sections of the western 
Carolinas have been boosted into the slight chance to more solid chance 
range...especially southeast of kclt. The GFS remains more aggressive than 
the NAM in wrapping precipitation into the western Piedmont...and this 
is supported by the latest sref mean forecast...but any quantitative precipitation forecast should 
be quite light. 


The 500 mb low center will likely remain over the central Carolinas 
through tonight...however...low pressure development at lower levels 
still appears focused mainly on the formation of a coastal trough. 
That is where the best moisture and greatest baroclinicity should 
set up...allowing probability of precipitation to taper off in western Piedmont areas tonight. 
Mins have been adjusted up a bit given the deeper layer easterly 
flow around the low and associated Atlantic moisture intruding west 
toward the Blue Ridge. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
at 230 am EDT Tuesday...on Wednesday morning a closed upper low will 
be over SC...with weak ridging to its north over the NE USA...and a 
week trough over the northern plains. The upper low lift north into 
PA by Thursday morning...while the trough upstream drifts east 
toward the Great Lakes. On Thursday night the NAM brings the upper 
low southeast to Chesapeake Bay...and has an upper ridge from the Great 
Lakes to the Gulf states...while the GFS upper low is absorbed by a 
trough off the New England coast...and has its upper ridge still 
over the northern plains. 


At the surface...a stationary front will be off the Carolina and Georgia 
coasts on Wednesday morning...with some amount of low to middle level 
moisture extending inland to the mountains on an east northeast flow 
off the Atlantic. This setup will support at least small probability of precipitation in 
limited upslope flow. As a surface wave moves up the coastal front 
late on Thursday...low level flow backs to the northeast...reducing 
the upslope component. 


Maximum temperatures will run below normal...while minimum 
temperatures warm to near normal...as cloud cover limits heating 
and cooling. 


&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
at 230 am EDT Tuesday...on Friday morning and upper ridge will 
extend from the SW USA to the northern plains...with a weak upper 
trough downstream over the East Coast...and another ridge from Florida to 
Bermuda. By Saturday the norther ridge reaches the Great Lakes and 
the East Coast trough weakens further. On Sunday the GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
diverge...with the GFS having a weak upper ridge over the East 
Coast...and the European model (ecmwf) having a weak upper low near the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia 
peninsula. On Monday the GFS ridge is gone...the European model (ecmwf) low has 
filled and the remaining trough has moved offshore...and both models 
have an upper low over the middle MS River Valley. 


At the surface...Friday will see high pressure centered over 
southern Ontario...and extending from New England and the Great 
Lakes south to the Gulf states. A stationary front off the Carolina 
and Georgia coasts will extend to the northern Gulf of Mexico. The models 
disagree on the western extent of moisture associated with the front 
and possible waves along it...with the European model (ecmwf) bringing moisture much 
farther inland than the GFS. Probability of precipitation would be more likely along the 
Interstate 77 corridor than over the foothills or mountains...but 
even the GFS has a drying trend over the weekend as the front starts 
to make a slow southeast push. 


On Sunday night and Monday...a surface wave on the western portion 
of the front in the central Gulf begins moving north into the lower 
MS River Valley. Moist isentropic upglide over this boundary will 
spread north over the upper Savannah River valley by late 
Monday...supporting precipiation. 


Temperatures will exhibit a slightly reduced diurnal trend due to 
cloud cover. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...moisture wrapping northward through central SC around the 500 mb 
cutoff low over the Savannah River will try to make a run toward 
kclt throughout the day. However...any resultant showers will 
likely be light and sparse...so vcsh should cover the threat. VFR 
ceilings will be persistent through the period...with some broken to ovc050 
possible at times as the showers get closer. Winds will remain 
locked in from the NE...but low end gust potential will exist with 
shallow mixing today. 


Elsewhere...profiles will be drier across the foothills and mountains 
than at kclt...and rain showers chances appear rather minimal. VFR clouds 
are expected to increase around the 500 mb cutoff low today and then 
slowly decrease at the SC sites tonight as the deeper moisture pulls 
back east. Most locations will see at least a period of lowering VFR 
stratocumulus at some point today. There is a slim chance of some 
IFR ceilings at kavl around daybreak...but early morning VFR 
stratocumulus development is making that less likely. Will feature 
just sct010 to hint that way after 09z. Expect steady NE flow of 10 
knots or less at the foothill sites...with variable winds primarily north 
to northwest at kavl. 


Outlook...high pressure building north of the region should keep 
conditions mostly VFR...but easterly flow Atlantic moisture could 
encroach on the region at times Wednesday through the weekend.
