NWS Forecaster Discussion




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


Synopsis... 
a moist air mass will remain across the region before a cold front 
crosses the area on Wednesday. Dry high pressure arrive for Thursday 
and Friday. Another cold front will cross the area on Saturday... 
followed by high pressure on Sunday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 935 am...light rain quickly ending across the County warning forecast area. However... 
widespread drizzle and low clouds remain. Should only see patchy 
very light rain for the rest of the day...but low clouds and drizzle 
will linger...with patchy fog of varying visibility depending on 
the amount of drizzle. Northeasterly wind with occasional low end gusts will 
continue outside of the mountains...with generally light southerly winds across 
the mountains may see some breaks in the clouds near the Tennessee border through 
the day which would allow temperatures to increase significantly there. 
Elsewhere...only a small increase in temperatures is expected with the 
continued low clouds and drizzle. That said...temperatures could rise a 
little higher if drizzle ends...allowing a little more insolation 
even with the clouds remaining. 


As of 630 am EST...fairly high coverage of mainly very light rain 
and drizzle are indicated on radar and in observation around daybreak across 
the area. Precipitation intensity/coverage will likely continue to slowly 
dwindle through the day as weak upglide relaxes over the cad 
stretching from 1027 mb high pressure centered over eastern New York down through 
the western Carolinas. Any lingering spotty freezing drizzle along the 
northern Blue Ridge should be ending as temperatures rise through the middle 
30s. The cad will remain in place through the day despite the 
gradually weakening isentropic lift. This should hold 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 night/... 
at 230 am EST Monday...on Tuesday morning a closed upper low will be 
moving from the Central Plains to the middle MS River Valley...with a 
trough extending south into NE Mexico...and ridging downstream off 
the East Coast. The upper low moves NE across the Great Lakes by 
Wednesday...while the trough axis moves very little. The trough the 
rapidly progresses across the MS River Valley to the Appalachians 
late Wednesday night. 


A cold air damming scenario will exist over the western Carolinas 
and north Georgia on Tuesday...while a cold front slowly crosses the Tennessee Valley 
and Gulf states. Isentropic upglide over an East Coast surface high 
will support widespread and prolonged precipitation. 


A surface wave develops moves north along the front in the Gulf 
states and Tennessee Tuesday night...while the cad wedge weakens. Robust 
moist southerly low level flow sets up into the southern 
Appalachians. At this point there remains some uncertainty as to how 
much instability and shear will be present over our area ahead of 
the cold front and Wednesday...but the best support for severe 
weather appears to be to our south. The front moves through on 
Wednesday...followed by cold advection and northwest flow snow showers over 
the NC mountains. 


Temperatures will exhibit a very low diurnal range on Tuesday and 
Tuesday night...as cloud cover and moisture hold maximums below 
normal and minimums above normal. Warming immediately ahead of the 
front will bring high temperatures above normal on Wednesday. Cold 
advection behind the front will be partially offset by downslope 
warming east of the mountains...and minimum temperatures will be 
slightly above normal. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
at 230 am EST Monday...on Thursday morning upper troughs will be 
over the east and the west...with a low amplitude upper ridge over 
the plains. By Friday morning the ridge axis will have progressed to 
the East Coast...while the trough upstream will have reached the 
east slopes of The Rockies. The trough will cross the plains on 
Saturday. By Sunday the European model (ecmwf) and GFS are out of phase...with the 
former placing its highly amplified trough over the MS River Valley 
and the later having its deamplified trough over the East 
Coast...with a low amplitude ridge over the MS River Valley...and 
another low amplitude trough over the plains...with nearly zonal 
flow over the southern tier of states. 


A cold front will be departing the East Coast on Thursday...with 
drying downslope flow in the Lee of the mountains...and some 
lingering upslope flow snow showers in the NC mountains bordering 
Tennessee. The upslope/downslope regime ends late Thursday as high pressure 
crosses the Gulf...and by Friday morning....Gulf inflow sets up on 
the back side of this high ahead of the next front. This front 
crosses the mountains late Friday night...but Gulf inflow weakens 
before it arrives...limiting precipitation. The front moves off the 
East Coast by Sunday morning....with another round of northwest upslope 
flow into the NC mountains...supporting another batch of snow 
showers. By Monday...dry high pressure moves into the Tennessee Valley. 


Temperatures will warm from near normal Thursday to slightly above 
normal Friday in warm advection ahead of the next front...cooling to 
slightly below normal behind the front. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...little in the way of additional rain is expected...but 
drizzle should continue in the upglide over the surface cad layer 
through much of the day. IFR ceilings look to be fairly locked into the 
600 to 800 feet range for the bulk of the day...but 500 or even 400 
is possible. Expect a steady NE flow at 10 knots or less through the 
period. Drizzle or light rain will return with resurgent upglide by 
late evening and become steadier overnight along with developing 
LIFR ceilings. 


Elsewhere...upglide moisture over the surface cad layer will yield 
drizzle throughout the region through most of the day even as rain 
has tapered off. Solid IFR ceilings should continue until at least early 
afternoon. Some brief recovery to lower end MVFR is possible this afternoon if 
the drizzle wanes. Expect continued NE flow at 10 knots or less through 
the period at the foothill sites...except southerly winds at kavl. Drizzle 
and light rain will return this evening along with IFR ceilings...with 
steadier rain and LIFR ceilings likely overnight along with lowering 
visibility. 


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.
