NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
651 am EST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the region today...with a broad and moist 
area of low pressure lingering into Wednesday night. Canadian high 
pressure will then build in Thursday and remain through the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 630 am...water vapor imagery shows deep upper trough with 
embedded cyclone centered over the Midwest. The trough will expand 
south and east through Tuesday morning...bringing a cold front 
with it which will push through our County warning forecast area today. Light radar returns 
are seen over the Ohio Valley in response to a channeled pocket 
of vorticity at the leading edge of the trough. The vorticity maximum will push 
eastward across the County warning forecast area later today...and strong qg forcing will 
accompany it through the area...as will precipitation. Moisture 
does not appear to be much of a limiting factor even east of the 
mountains falling heights will allow lapse rates to increase during 
the day as well. A bullseye of cape values up to near 200 j/kg 
is shown on both NAM and GFS...the GFS having trended toward 
the NAM which has been consistently unstable for Monday over 
the past few runs. This instability...especially given the upper 
forcing...lends confidence to showers developing and spreading 
across the area today. Convection allowing models are surprisingly 
unresponsive...the hi-res WRF windows basically supporting only 
isolated/schc probability of precipitation during the day. I still feel probability of precipitation similar to 
those from the previous forecast are warranted. Included a low thunder 
chance over western NC based on peak convective available potential energy. 


Colder air filters in steadily at 850mb through the day. Based on 
favored blend /mostly sref/...temperatures in the higher elevations 
are expected to remain nearly steady...with valleys and the 
Piedmont managing to warm enough that any precipitation will initially 
be rain. Still looks like snow levels will fall as the day 
progresses. Snow levels reach the valley floor around sunset. With 
the leading shot of upper forcing departing this evening...precipitation 
chances taper off in the Piedmont...and with temperatures remaining so warm 
this round should end as rain. However...while model quantitative precipitation forecast response 
is again quite low...a second vorticity lobe rotating around the upper 
cyclone will dive through the tenn valley this evening before swinging 
across western NC in the wee hours Tuesday. I felt this depicted wave 
appeared strong enough to be able to generate a few Piedmont showers 
from the still-moist low levels. By the time this moves through...temperatures 
should be cold enough for snow. However accumulation is not likely. 


Westerly upslope flow will be an additional factor for the tenn 
border areas. This will get underway this morning and remain 
steady...but the low level winds veer and strengthen in the late 
afternoon and evening. Furthermore that second period of upper 
forcing may enhance the upslope-forced precipitation rates even more. I 
blended in more of the cam/hi-res guidance in order to better 
capture the terrain influence. New snow totals meet warning 
criteria in the upslope areas during the first 24 hours of the 
forecast. Thus...a Winter Storm Warning is being raised for the tenn 
border zones. Avery is omitted since the cam guidance placed more of 
the snow west and south of the County. Advisory has been extended 
through 12z Tuesday for areas that were previously in the advisory...but 
that do not meet warning criteria. The warning could be extended 
to highlight the continuing threat of northwest flow through midweek. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 315 am Monday...deep upper trough remains over the area Tuesday and 
slowly slides east on Wednesday. A series of short waves will move through 
the trough and across the area both days. Surges of cold air advection and strong northwest 
flow will accompany the short waves. This will lead to periods of northwest 
flow snow showers across the NC mountains both days. Expect clouds to 
break containment and spread across the foothill and Piedmont...and 
possibly snow showers as well with the relatively deep steep low 
level lapse rates that develop. Do not expect any accums from any 
snow showers that do develop outside of the mountains however...with the 
long duration of snow showers across the mountains...amounts will be up 
to 4 inches in the usual locations of the northern mountains...with 1 to 2 
inches southward along the Tennessee border by the time the snow tapers off 
Wednesday night. Could see some clouds outside of the mountains on Wednesday but no 
snow showers expected that day. Highs Tuesday will be 10 to 20 degrees 
below normal then fall to 15 to 25 degrees below normal on Wednesday as 
the coldest part of the air mass moves into the area. Lows 5 to 10 
degrees below normal Tuesday night fall to 10 to 20 degrees below normal 
Wednesday night. With the strong and gusty winds continuing through the 
period...wind chill values fall into the advisory range across the 
higher elevations Tuesday night...and down into the valleys on Wednesday 
night...with warning level wind chills possible in the higher 
elevations. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 340 am Monday...although the guidance shows the overall 
pattern in the medium range is in decent agreement...there is quite 
a spread in the details. A long wave trough remains over the eastern Continental U.S. 
Through the period. The flow flattens slightly on Thursday as the short wave 
from the short range moves east...then deepens again Friday and Sat as 
another series of short waves dig into the trough. The European model (ecmwf) is deeper 
and stronger with the trough as a closed upper low dives into the middle 
Atlantic...while the GFS keeps the upper low over Quebec. Heights 
then rise on sun in the GFS as the trough axis moves east...while the 
European model (ecmwf) keeps heights low as the trough only slowly moves east. 


At the surface...the guidance agrees on a clipper system affecting the 
area...but the GFS is faster and weaker with the system while the 
European model (ecmwf) is stronger and slower. Both also have a reinforcing very cold 
air mass moving in behind the system...but the GFS brings it in 
sooner and moderates it faster. Given these differences....have gone 
with a guidance blend. This means a dry forecast for Thursday...with chance 
pop for the Tennessee border counties Friday and Friday night...with slight chance 
pop elsewhere...then dry forecast again for Sat and sun. Even though 
temperatures remain normal through the period...do have a warming trend through 
Sat with cooling again for sun. Wind chill values will again 
approach advisory levels across the higher elevations Sat night. That 
said...this is a low confidence forecast given the wide range in the 
guidance. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt and east of the Blue Ridge...mainly southerly winds will 
precede an approaching cold front associated with a deep upper 
trough pushing into the southeast Continental U.S.. increasing midlevel clouds 
will be seen through midday...when a vorticity lobe embedded within the 
trough begins to pass over the sites. A period of lower cloud 
bases associated with deep cumulus will develop overhead in response 
to the upper lift and strong middle-upper level lapse rates. There 
is also a chance of low VFR rain showers...and a nonzero chance of a ts 
and MVFR ceiling. Chance is in the tempo range at all sites at their 
peak...but included vcsh surrounding the tempo. Chances taper off in 
the evening in the wake of the vorticity lobe...but with falling temperatures 
in the wake of the front...any remnant showers could mix with snow 
before ending. That chance is too low enough to mention. Winds will 
be nearly due west...but more likely S of west with low pressure to the north. 


At kavl and in the mountains...convective potential with the passing 
upper disturbance is a little earlier in the day...but chances 
at kavl are still only in tempo range on this account. Cooler 
temperatures will support all snow on ridgetops and a rasn mix in the 
lower valleys /and kavl/. Onset of what looks to be a prolonged 
northwest flow snow event is expected in the afternoon as winds back in 
the wake of the disturbance and cold advection strengthens. The 
better chances will be in the high elevations...but a low chance 
of accumulating -shsn exists at kavl after sunset. Handling this 
with prob30. Brisk flow across the mountains is prognosticated to result in a 
rare crosswind at kavl...with a few gusts not out of the question. 


Outlook...several strong upper disturbances embedded in a deep 
upper trough will swing across the area through Wednesday. Moisture 
and cold air will continue to flow into the area during this 
time period. Restrictions will be possible...particularly in the 
mountains where there are high chances of accumulating snow.
