NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
335 am EDT sun Mar 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move off the southeast coast by late in the day. 
A low pressure clipper system and associated cold front will then 
pass over the area early Monday morning. High pressure will return 
briefly at midweek...but another cold front will drop down into the 
region by Friday. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
as of 315 am EDT Sunday...upper heights continue to rise across the 
southeast this morning as short wave ridging slides overhead. At 
the surface...broad surface high pressure ridge continues to 
migrate through the southern/central Apps...eventually setting up 
over the low country this afternoon. Meanwhile...another upper 
shortwave will be right on the heels of the progressive shortwave 
ridge as it digs out of Ontario into the upper Midwest. A cold 
front will extend southward across the Midwest...before sliding into 
the Ohio River valley late in the day. Although widespread freezing 
conditions continue to develop this morning due to abundant 
radiational cooling...expecting surface flow to veer southerly by late 
morning as the high center migrates southeast allowing for the 
return of weak warm air advection. As a result...temperatures will gradually 
moderate through the day however still topping out nearly a Cat 
below normal levels. Additionally...as temperatures warm this 
afternoon expecting relative humidity values to plummet into the teens to lower 20s 
across the entire forecast area. Winds will be calmer today as the high 
slides overhead...however a Fire Danger Statement remains in effect 
for portions of northeast Georgia at the request of land managers...with 
no other products planned for NC/SC. 


As the above mentioned cold front moves through the Ohio Valley into 
the Tennessee Valley...expecting high level cirrus to advect downstream 
across the southern Apps. Probability of precipitation will begin to increase after 
midnight as the front approaches. Showers will likely be numerous 
in nature across the high terrain as entrance region of upper jet 
slides by along with modest low level jet possibly enhancing moisture flux and 
upslope potential. Therefore probability of precipitation will increase to categorical 
levels along The Spine with likely/chance level probability of precipitation further east 
through periods end. Quantitative precipitation forecast will likely be maximized over the climatology 
favored regions of the SW NC mountains where upwards of a quarter inch is 
possible...with generally less than a tenth elsewhere. Temperatures 
overnight will cool diurnally but should be much closer to normal 
levels than nights past. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Tuesday/... 
as of 330 am EDT Sunday...the models still suggest a rapid frontal 
passage on Monday morning as the short wave passes overhead quickly. 
Have limited the precipitation probability east of the mountains to the chance 
range as the moisture return from the Gulf/Atlantic is not great and 
the system is coming in from the west-northwest. Either way...it should be over 
and done with by 18z Monday. Thereafter...northwest flow and downslope east of 
the mountains will allow temperatures to climb roughly ten degrees above sundays 
highs in spite of the passage of a cold front early in the day. The 
rest of the short range is relatively quiet. Monday night and 
Tuesday will see a weak high move overhead then off the southeast coast. 
The GFS continues to want to activate the old front across the 
southeast as a warm front on Tuesday. Think the eastward extent of this 
is overdone/premature Tuesday afternoon and prefer to stick closer 
to the drier NAM solution. Temperatures on Tuesday will be a few degrees 
warmer than Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
as of 315 am Sunday...not sure that confidence has improved all that 
much out in the medium range...as it seems each new model run bears 
only a vague resemblance to the previous one. The first issue is the 
activation of the old surface boundary as a warm front across the southeast 
on Tuesday night and Wednesday...ahead of the dampening southern stream 
short wave. Not sure the GFS is not overdone with the extent of the 
precipitation near the front to our S/SW...so have kept the precipitation chances 
low and in line with neighbors. Any chance of precipitation we have will 
gradually develop a focus near the S/SW upslope locations near the 
Blue Ridge by Wednesday morning. Forcing associated with the southern 
stream wave never impresses much as it passes through Wednesday night 
and Thursday so the precipitation probability was limited to the chance 
range...which is hopefully not overdone. Perhaps the most important 
part of the forecast for this part of the week is the eastern upper trough 
lifting out and the replacement with a broad upper ridge along the East 
Coast...which should spell a warmup to above normal temperatures for a 
change. The next problem will be late in the week with a cold front 
expected to drop down from the northwest as a northern stream short wave passes 
over the Great Lakes/Midwest on Friday. Some minor changes were made to 
the precipitation chances on Friday based on the new guidance...mainly to 
raise the chance earlier on Friday. The guidance suggests the 
western Carolinas and NE Georgia will be in a broad warm sector 
ahead of the cold front...which means we might see enough buoyancy to 
feed some deeper convection. Right now...there does not appear to be 
much favorable overlap between cape and shear...but this will be 
further evaluated. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will prevail through the taf 
period. Intruding high pressure will allow for decreasing winds 
overnight beneath clear skies. As the high center shifts overhead 
through middle morning expecting flow to increase out of the southeast before 
veering to the SW at around 6-8kts at all sites by late morning. 
Expecting sky clear to prevail at all sites through the first half of the 
period...however as a cold front slides into the Ohio Valley models 
indicate high level cirrus advecting downstream over the region. 
Thus...all sites feature few high clouds by early afternoon...with 
the addition of a few low clouds at kavl late in the period as 
prefrontal moisture intrudes. 


Outlook...cig/vsby restrictions will be possible with the next frontal passage 
on Monday at all sites...especially for middle/late morning at kavl. 
Broad surface high pressure regains control in the middle of next 
week...ahead of an approaching warm front and resultant moisture 
return later in the week.

Fire weather... 
a dry polar airmass remains over the region today ahead of the 
return of southerly flow tonight. As temperatures warm diurnally 
expecting relative humidity values to plummet into the teens to lower 20s across 
the entire forecast area. Winds will be rather light...however...drying 
fuels will lead to enhanced fire danger. In coordination with Georgia 
land managers...a Fire Danger Statement remains in effect for 
northeast Georgia this afternoon.
