NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
112 am EST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a moist air mass will remain across the region before a cold front 
crosses east on Wednesday. Dry Canadian high pressure will build in 
Thursday and persist into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1245 am EST...a line of enhanced cold cloud tops on infrared imagery 
stretching from the MS Gulf Coast through the southern Appalachians to 
the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia nicely depicts a 140 knots upper jetlet overhead. Weak 
upper divergence southeast of this feature is slightly enhancing moist 
upglide over the surface cold air damming layer in place...and light 
rain and drizzle will result over much of the area this morning 
until the upper jet axis slides southeast and weakens. Any lingering spotty 
freezing drizzle along the northern Blue Ridge should be very isolated and 
brief. At the surface...1028 mb high pressure over eastern New York will continue to 
ridge southward through the western Carolinas to keep cold air damming in 
place through the day despite the gradually weakening isentropic 
lift. This should hold temperatures temperatures in the upper 30s to 
middle 40s throughout the region today...except for some lower 50s 
in the SW mountains outside the cad regime. 


Meanwhile...a deep trough stretching from the northern plains to East Texas 
will see heights closing off over the central Continental U.S. Through tonight. 
The main downstream result of this will be resurgent upglide tonight 
along with slightly deeper moisture. Will allow probability of precipitation to rebound to 
high chance to likely for mainly light rain...and temperatures will 
generally remain steady through the night. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM EST Sunday...Monday night through Tuesday night...latest 
12z models continue to indicate that surface cold air damming wedge 
will continue across the area as 1030mb high will remain anchored 
over the NE. Meanwhile...strong south-southwesterly flow aloft develops across the 
southeast by Tuesday as a deep upper trough moves east across the central Continental U.S. 
While an upper ridge amplifies over the western Atlantic. This will 
lead to increasing 290k isentropic lift/Atlantic moisture advection 
over our County Warning Area through Tuesday. Hence...have carried chance probability of precipitation for 
light rain with drizzle Monday night into Tuesday morning...ramping up into 
the categorical probability of precipitation with steady rain towards Tuesday night. With 
ongoing precipitation within the cad...afternoon temperatures on Tuesday will run 7-10 
degrees below normal over the Piedmont with 3-5 degrees below over 
the western NC mountains 


Wednesday...the upper trough over the Mississippi Valley will 
advance eastward...becoming positively tiled as it pushes through 
the eastern Continental U.S.. this will lift a surface low into the Ohio Valley 
by 18z...pushing its associated cold front through the forecast area 
between 18z Wednesday and 00z Thursday. Although there will be strong low level wind 
shear along and ahead of the front...the best upper forcing will not 
reach the area until 00z Thursday and areas SBCAPE regime will be shunted 
to the south. Therefore...high shear Low Cape induced severe event 
appears unimpressive at this time. Have inherited a chance of 
afternoon thunder over the western NC Piedmont...portions of the 
upstate SC...NE Georgia and extreme western NC mountain zones to account 
for the presence of weak elevated buoyancy. As for quantitative precipitation forecast...models 
still depict widespread convective activity along the Gulf Coast/southeast 
coast...which could block deep moisture transport into our area. 
With the uncertainty...have gone with the model consensus 
quantitative precipitation forecast...yielding 1-2 inches across the region with up to 3" over the 
Blue Ridge Escarpment. Categorical probability of precipitation were highlighted through 18z 
Wednesday... quickly ramping down to the chance range from west to east 
through 00z Thursday as the front pushes to the east. With increasing warm air advection 
flow...afternoon temperatures will warm into the u50s/60s east of the mountains 
and 50s over the mountains 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 200 PM Sunday...the late week will see the sharp upper trough 
push off the East Coast...leaving quasi-zonal flow over the eastern third 
of the Continental U.S.. dry high pressure will cross the southeast before 
heights fall over the Mississippi Valley as next low rolls off The 
Rockies and across the Great Lakes. Differences between the GFS and ec 
are minor in terms of sensible weather Christmas day and Friday...both 
indicating northwest flow precipitation tapering off Christmas morning followed by dry 
weather most of Friday. In cold advective pattern higher elevations will 
likely see breezy/gusty conditions on Christmas. The cold front 
associated with the Great Lakes low will arrive by Friday night albeit 
without much oomph...the GFS pretty much washing the front out over 
the Carolinas. The ec however diverges at this point...stalling the 
front along the coast and eventually developing a coastal low near 
the Outer Banks Sunday in response to a southern stream shortwave trailing 
the front. Both the 21/00z and 21/12z runs feature this evolution. So 
while the GFS would suggest next weekend will be quiet and dry...ec 
indicates some ptype issues may exist Sunday with wintry partial 
thicknesses and thermal profiles. Temperatures will be at or a little above 
climatology from Thu-Sat...and below normal Sunday if the clouds/precipitation 
materialize. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...radar shows light returns moving northward over the 
airfield this morning...and either very light rain or drizzle should 
continue in the upglide over the surface cad layer through much of the 
day. Given lowering IFR ceilings over the midlands of SC...will 
advertise tempo IFR through daybreak and then fairly solid IFR 
through most of the day as drizzle and light rain gradually wane 
from the west. Expect a steady NE flow at less than 10 knots through 
the period. Drizzle or light rain will return with resurgent upglide 
by late evening. 


Elsewhere...upglide moisture over the surface cad layer will yield light 
rain or drizzle throughout the region through most of the morning 
hours...before tapering off from the west this afternoon. More solid IFR 
ceilings will likely develop from S to north...except for rather quick IFR 
development at kavl in southeast flow early this morning. Some brief 
recovery to lower end MVFR is possible this afternoon as the drizzle 
wanes. Expect continued NE flow at less than 10 knots through the 
period at the foothill sites...except southeast winds at kavl. Drizzle and 
light rain will return this evening along with IFR ceilings. 


Outlook...moisture will deepen late tonight through Tuesday night 
ahead of the next approaching cold front. Low restrictions and 
widespread rain showers are expected. A cold front will cross the 
region from the west on Wednesday. Dry high pressure will return through 
late week.
