NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
547 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
a deep upper low pressure system will cross the area from the 
west today. This system will be accompanied by cold temperatures 
and very windy conditions. Dry and cold high pressure will return 
Sunday through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 5 am...an area of light to moderate precipitation continues to pivot 
across upstate SC as the upper low moves down across the southern 
Appalachians. As earlier feared...precipitation rate has been high 
enough in some of the Greenville metropolitan area to bring the freezing 
level down very close to the surface...in particular the area from the 
west side of Greenville through Travelers Rest and near Paris Mountain. 
Precipitation will fall as a mix of rain and wet snow across much of 
the upstate...with a few pockets where it changes to all wet snow. 
Most of the accumulation will be on grassy and elevated surfaces. As 
it stands right now...the area where snow is likely to accumulate 
will be very localized to a small part of northern Greenville 
County...so it will be handled with a Special Weather Statement. 
Fortunately...most of the snow will melt on contact with Road 
surfaces. This remains a dynamic situation so additional updates are 
possible. If temperatures drop another degree or two...the Winter Weather 
Advisory will be expanded to include the gsp metropolitan area. The 
categorical pop was expanded and extended across the upstate to 
handle this development. 


The upper low should pass overhead through the morning hours with 
all manner of low/mid/high upper forcing coming into play. Have 
raised/expanded the precipitation probability through the morning hours. 
Cannot rule out a changeover to wet snow across the NC 
foothills/upstate as the colder air spills down from the mountains a 
mix/changeover actually appears a bit less of a possibility over 
metropolitan clt as the model trend was a bit warmer this morning. 
However...as we are seeing currently over gsp...if the precipitation 
falls with enough intensity...some wet snow could make it to the 
ground. The upper low should pull a quick exit off to the east 
during the middle part of the day...bringing the low level winds 
around to a north to northwest downslope after 15z...which should start to 
diminish precipitation potential near the Blue Ridge/western upstate. As the 
low moves away...some wrap around deformation may linger over the 
western Piedmont into the afternoon...but that should also die off and 
move east by late afternoon. Meanwhile...the mountains will undergo a 
transition to a more pure northwest flow precipitation event...which will mainly 
be snow. Will maintain a high precipitation chance near the Tennessee border...and 
taper it off eastward from there. 


We should continue to dry out everywhere east of The Spine of the 
Appalachians this evening and tonight. However...the northwest flow snow 
will continue into tonight along the Tennessee border. This may require 
extending the Winter Storm Warning through this evening. Wind gusts 
should abate enough around sunset that we can keep the same expiration 
time on the Wind Advisory. As for the freeze watch...forecast lows are 
such that we can roll that over to a freeze warning. The warning 
will have to be expanded into the northern foothills of NC based on the 
min temperature forecast. Henderson County NC will be left out as the frost/ 
freeze program ends 1 November as a matter of policy. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Sat...a deep upper low pressure trough off the 
Carolinas coast 12z sun will lift north-northeast into the Maine coast by 00z 
Monday...leaving the County Warning Area under northwesterly flow aloft on sun. 500 mb 
heights/thicknesses rise considerably by Monday as an upper ridge 
builds in from the west. The upper ridge axis is forecast to reach 
our region by Monday night. 


At the surface...1030mb surface high will build in from the northwest sun 
and becomes centered over the southeast states by Monday. Any lingering northwest 
precipitation along the Tennessee border line should taper off by Sun morning as 
dry airmass moves in. With prevailing cold air advection northwest flow on sun...temperatures 
should remain around 10-15 degrees below normal. Latest guidance 
suggests that sub-freezing temperatures are expected over much of 
the County Warning Area on Sun night. Therefore...another freeze watch may be needed 
over east of the mountains for this period. 


As modifying high pressure centered over the region shifts east 
through Monday night...winds will veer to the SW and temperatures should 
warm up by more than 10 degrees by Monday afternoon in its wake. 
Conditions should remain dry under the high pressure Monday. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
as of 230 am EDT Sat...latest global models continue to agree 
that an upper ridge axis over the eastern states will shift 
offshore by Tuesday night as a positively tilted upper trough 
approaches from the central Continental U.S.. this trough is forecast to 
cross the eastern Continental U.S. Between Wednesday night and Thursday...off the 
Atlantic coast by early Friday. 


At the surface...a modifying high pressure centered over the southeast 
states will gradually shift offshore Tuesday into Wednesday as a weak cold 
front approaches from the west. The front should cross the region 
late Wednesday into Thursday...off to our east by Thursday night. It still appears 
that the front will be moisture starved. Hence...have inherited 
slight chance probability of precipitation over the Piedmont with low end chance Manly over 
the western zones of the mountains Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. 
Conditions look dry Thursday night and Friday as a cool high pressure builds 
in from the west. Modes suggest that there could be light northwest precipitation 
(a mix of rain and snow) behind the departing front along the Tennessee 
border Thursday night into Friday. So have kept slight chance for rn/snow 
there through Friday morning. Temperatures should start out around 3-5 degrees 
below normal Tuesday...warming up to near normal by Wednesday. Temperatures then cool 
off by 5-7 degrees by Friday in the wake of the frontal passage. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
at kclt...additional areas of light rain have developed across the 
northern upstate of SC and into the clt metropolitan area. Expect light rain to 
continue falling for the better part of the pre-dawn hours...which 
is expected to bring the ceiling down into the MVFR range no later 
than 10z. Wind will remain north and will strengthen throughout the 
morning...becoming gusty once the sun rises and the boundary layer 
deepens enough to tap into some higher wind aloft. The big question 
this morning is the precipitation type. The model trend on the 00z run was 
for a slightly warmer and deeper boundary layer. Forecast soundings no 
longer support snow. Surface temperatures do not fall below about 39 degrees 
even on the coldest model guidance. For that reason...have 
eliminated the rain snow mix that was in the previous taf. Will 
never completely rule out some wet snowflakes or sleet pellets in 
this type of situation with a very dynamic and cold core upper 
low...but the chance is only something like 10 percent...so it was 
left out of the 06z taf. Will evaluate again when the 03z sref 
guidance arrives...and the rest of the forecast is updated. The upper 
low moves out quick during the middle part of the day. Ceiling 
should start to improve around 17z and should lift to VFR by middle 
afternoon. The low clouds may scatter out quicker than the taf 
indicates...but certainly by around sunset...at which time the wind 
gusts should subside. 


Elsewhere...kavl will have the greatest impact. Any precipitation that 
falls should mainly be in the form of snow at kavl...and should 
briefly reduce visibility to MVFR or IFR range. Went with a tempo IFR for 
the snow for the first part of the taf based on radar trend... and 
this will probably be moved forward in time with each successive 
amend. The other taf sites should see light rain as colder air 
filters in...perhaps mixing with some wet snow from around daybreak 
to middle morning during the most dynamic part of the low passage. This 
was included as a tempo at khky/kgsp/kgmu...but left out of kand as 
downslope should suppress precipitation around the sav river basin. The low 
clouds and precipitation will persist through the day at kavl...but move 
out east of the mountains around midday. 


Outlook...drying high pressure will build in late this weekend and 
continue through early next week...bringing VFR conditions.
