NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
141 am EDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
a large cool and dry air mass will dominate the weather across the 
southern appalachian region through Tuesday. A well organized low 
pressure system will lift across the deep south...tracking along the 
Atlantic coast during the middle week. Another Canadian air mass will 
settle back over the region during the late week and will remain 
into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 1030 PM...all is quiet across the western Carolinas and NE 
Georgia. Patches of thicker cirrus were helping to keep temperatures a bit 
warmer than expected at this time of the evening...so an upward 
adjustment was made to the cooling trend. Still too early to give up 
on the min temperatures...though. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 230 PM...a short wave rotates across the area tonight in the 
cyclonic flow around an upper low moving east away from the New 
England coast. At the surface...high pressure noses in from the northwest 
overnight. Expect the cumulus outside of the mountains to diminish through this 
evening...but will linger a little longer across the mountains until the 
northwest flow abates after midnight. There will also be quite a bit of 
cirrus overnight as upper level moisture moves in with a jet streak. 
This cirrus will help keep temperatures from bottoming out across the area. 
However...temperatures will still fall enough for frost to develop across the 
NC mountains the frost should be widespread enough for a frost advisory 
along the Tennessee border counties from Swain north...including the northern 
Blue Ridge portions of the foothills. Expect patch frost across the 
rest of the NC mountains...and possibly normally colder locations of the 
I-40 corridor. Lows will be around 5 degrees below normal. 


The flow becomes more westerly Tuesday as the New England upper low moves 
farther off shore and a Southern Plains upper low moves into the 
mid-south. At the surface...high pressure continues to build into the 
area as a low pressure system moves along the central Gulf Coast. 
Clouds will increase through the day ahead of this system...but all 
guidance has backed off on the speed of the precipitation with the low. 
Therefore...have slowed precipitation onset as well until after the Tuesday 
period. Although middle and upper level clouds increase through the day... 
there may be little in the way of low clouds as low level moisture 
is limited and isentropic lift is delayed even with low level flow 
turning southeasterly. The clouds and lower thicknesses will limit heating 
and keep highs 5 to 10 degrees below normal. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Thursday/... 
of 200 PM Monday...main focus for the short term is the southern 
stream upper low moving eastward across the deep south. An attendant 
surface cyclone is forecast to be just east of the Mississippi Delta 
Region at 00z Wednesday and is forecast to track eastward to the SC coast 
by 00z Thursday and then turn northward up the East Coast on Thursday in 
response to another upper low digging rapidly southward through the 
Great Lakes. 


All this portends several forcing mechanisms affecting the western 
Carolinas and NE Georgia beginning Tuesday night. Upper divergence combined with 
isentropic upglide and upslope flow in combination with accompanying 
deep moisture will result in a rapid increase in rainfall coverage 
by early Wednesday. The transitory nature of the weather system and 
lack of convective elements should preclude excessive rainfall 
totals that would present Hydro issues. However...a soaking rain is 
expected with rainfall totals generally around 1 inch or so. The 
southern track of the low will keep the area under a cool NE flow at 
the surface. Therefore...temperatures on Wednesday will show little diurnal change. 
Will lean toward the rawblend guidance for maximum temperatures which will tamp 
down highs into generally the low to middle 50s across the region. 


The bulk of the precipitation will move east of the area Wednesday night as the 
surface low tracks off the Carolina coast. Our attention then turns to 
an anomalous upper low plunging quickly southeast from the Great Lakes. The 
upper low will reach the western Carolinas and NE Georgia late Thursday 
and it will be accompanied by a surface cold front. The 12z NAM and 
GFS respond with showers Thursday afternoon as the upper forcing and 
cold front arrive. They also devlop a few hundred joules of cape...so 
some rumbles of thunder may occur. With freezing levels falling to 
around 5000 feet or so in the mountains some graupel may occur with 
some of the convective cells. Temperatures will remain below climatology on Thursday 
with 50s in the mountains and 60s elsewhere. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 200 PM EDT Monday...the medium range forecast period initializes 
Thursday evening amidst a departing surface low over the western 
atl...while a secondary upper shortwave dives south from the Great 
Lakes region. Not much change from previous forecast regarding said 
upper wave as models continue to warrant low end chance to slight 
chance probability of precipitation over the forecast area through Friday morning with the 
highest probability of precipitation residing over the NC high terrain where northwest flow 
upsloping will aid shower development. The forecast dries out through 
Friday...then remains dry through the weekend as deep layer ridging 
prevails. That said...models do hint at low chances for precipitation on 
Sunday afternoon across the NC mountains with maximum heating...however kept 
any mention out of forecast as upper ridge is expected to provide ample 
subsidence. On Monday said ridge begins to flatten as a more potent 
upper wave develops over the central/northern plains. Thus did 
introduce slight chance probability of precipitation across the NC mountains and northern 
foothills as any capping could be weakened amidst diurnal induced 
instability. Temperatures through the period will moderate to above 
normal levels. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
at kclt...expect VFR conditions through the period. Scattered to 
occasionally broken cirrus will dominate...with few to scattered low VFR 
/6kft or so/ clouds building in toward the end of the period. Just 
beyond the end of the period...-shra will be approaching the 
Piedmont as moisture overspreads the southeast from a surface low 
moving in from the Gulf. Will have to consider that for the 12z set. 
Otherwise mainly a wind forecast and wind shift timing will depend 
on approach of the inverted trough axis...plus if a Lee low manages 
to develop. Current timing has wind shift from east-northeast to east-southeast right 
around 03z Wednesday but this will need to be refined. Speeds should 
remain generally below 5kt. 


Elsewhere...overall similar trend to kclt but with typical timing 
differences. Expect cirrus more dense across upstate tafs this 
morning with kavl/khky holding onto sky clear for a few more hours. Will 
likely see at least vcsh with low VFR overcast pushing into kand toward 
the end of the period...with additional restrictions anticipated 
just beyond the end of the taf. 


Outlook...the area of low pressure will push across the southeast 
Wednesday into Thursday with continued ceiling and visibility restrictions 
anticipated. An upper level disturbance approaches from the north 
late Thursday and Friday with a continuation of restrictions 
possible. Dry high pressure moves in for the weekend.
