NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
944 am EDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will push through the region this morning ahead of 
rebuilding high pressure for Tuesday. Another weak cold front will 
arrive on Tuesday night with high pressure quickly building for 
Wednesday lasting through Thursday. Friday night will bring the 
passage of another cold front...with cooler and drier high pressure 
prevailing for the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 930 am...the band of prefrontal showers and thunderstorms have 
exited the County Warning Area to the east...with only Union County under light rain. 
The County Warning Area should become dry over the next hour. I will update the 
forecast decrease probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast across the County Warning Area. In addition...I will 
increase sky cover and slow the morning diurnal warming rate. This 
afternoon...the cold front will push over the Piedmont...resulting 
in light downslope flow. Clearing should occur through the afternoon 
hours. However...slow warming this morning will place the current 
forecast out of pace for high temperatures. The update will also 
feature high temperates several degrees cooler...with around 60 
within the mountain valleys to middle to upper 60s east. 


As of 630 am...large area of rain...with embedded thunderstorms... 
was moving very rapidly across southern NC/upstate SC/NE Georgia...driven 
eastward by a strong low level jet. Have raised precipitation probability to 
categorical most places S of I-40 based on radar trend. Some places 
could pick up an inch or so of precipitation where the moderate rain in the 
trailing stratiform region lingers longest. Temperatures were tweaked based 
on observation. The models take the band of precipitation ahead of the front 
eastward across the forecast area fairly rapidly this morning...as the 
short wave rotates quickly around the bottom of the upper trough. This 
should drive the surface frontal zone east of the region by midday. 
Coverage should be not as great along/north of I-40 where downslope east of 
the mountains will be unfavorable. Precipitation chances ramp down quickly by 
midday. Temperatures should rebound nicely...about ten degrees above 
yesterday...in spite of the surface boundary moving through...because of 
the west/northwest downslope flow in the afternoon. 


Tonight should be quiet as high pressure builds back in from the northwest. 
Min temperatures will be below normal again. There are some minor concerns 
for frost/freeze over the mountains...but the temperatures below 32f are mainly 
confined to the higher elevations...and the frost potential does not 
appear to be that great based on dewpoints. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 300 am EDT Monday...the short term forecast period initializes 
Tuesday morning amidst continued northwest flow pattern aloft...highlighted 
by a northern stream shortwave sliding through the southern Great 
Lakes region. Weak surface cyclogenesis beneath will aid cold frontal 
progression across the Midwest into the Ohio Valley on Tuesday ahead 
of sprawling high pressure. Meanwhile across the Southern Plains 
another surface wave will form in the Lee of the southern rockies 
allowing for development of modest baroclinic zone over the 
southeast Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. Warm front leading the 
charge northward on Tuesday will advance into the i20 corridor late 
in the day with activation likely as more unstable air advects 
northward. As the above mentioned cold front continues to slide 
south through the Tennessee Valley...expecting convection along the frontal 
zone which could push into the western NC mountains late Tuesday night. 
Models continue to hint at some residual instability after sunset 
ahead of the front...however decreasing with heating loss...and 
drier air advection behind the front as it back doors into the 
region. The front will slide south through the remainder of the 
forecast area overnight...as high pressure sets up along the eastern 
Seaboard. Brief height rises aloft combined with ridging at the 
surface will keep the weather dry on Wednesday ahead of returning moist 
southerly upglide atop possible insitu cad Thursday morning. 


As for the forecast...probability of precipitation will slowly increase into Tuesday evening 
across the northeast Georgia and western NC mountains to account for weak 
frontal zone associated convection...with probability of precipitation removed by middle 
morning Wednesday as the cold front slides through. Probability of precipitation will 
remain below mentionable levels through the day Wednesday before 
increasing middle/late evening as models continue to hint at weak 
insitu cad regime on the western flank of the coastal surface ridge. GFS 
isentropic charts indicate improving upglide in the low 
levels...thus chance level probability of precipitation were favored over the western half 
of the forecast area tapering to slight chance further east on the 
fringe of upglide maxima. Temperatures through the period will 
remain above normal levels despite the weak frontal passage Tuesday night. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 315 am EDT Monday...the medium range forecast period initializes 
Thursday morning amidst ongoing upglide/upslope precipitation across much of 
the southwest NC and northeast Georgia mountains weak insitu cad regime 
resultant from anchored coastal high off the NC coast will break 
down through late morning leading to erosion of any upglide 
enhancement. Southerly flow at the surface will continue leading to 
improving warm air advection regime into Friday. Meanwhile...a northern stream 
upper wave will slide across the upper Midwest while a cold front 
stretches to the south from subsequent surface low. Models continue to 
forecast the front along the Ohio River valley Thursday evening with an 
improving warm sector airmass out ahead. The European model (ecmwf)/GFS trend 
towards some discontinuity late in the week regarding timing of the 
frontal passage across the southern Apps. The European model (ecmwf) favors a faster solution 
which brings the front into the mountains of western NC Friday afternoon 
or early evening with perhaps isolated convection ahead in the 
mildly unstable airmass...while the GFS seems about 6 hours slower 
than that of the European model (ecmwf). Both solutions would favor a nocturnal 
frontal passage thus limiting the amount of potential instability available 
for convection. Beyond that the front should exit the region to the 
east by midday Saturday at the latest allowing for cooler/drier high 
pressure to advect in from the west. Temperatures through the 
period will warm to well above normal levels for Thursday and 
Friday...with slightly cooler yet still above climatology levels forecast for 
the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...band of precipitation ahead of front will move across the 
airfield through about 14z. Expect the heavier precipitation and embedded 
thunderstorms to move S of the airfield...so will not carry a thunderstorms and rain. 
The precipitation should help bring the ceiling down into the lower end of 
the MVFR range...but the model guidance suggests that any MVFR 
ceiling will not form until after the heavier rain moves off to the 
east. Wind should stay SW until midday when the frontal zone reaches 
the southern Piedmont. Expect the wind shift around 17z...first to 
westerly...around the same time the low clouds move out...and then 
to northwest by middle afternoon when the clouds scatter out for good. The 
rest of the forecast will be VFR with only cirrus and a northwest to north wind 
overnight. 


Elsewhere...the band of precipitation should move east of the terminals by 
14z or so. An MVFR ceiling is expected on the back side of the rain 
area based on model guidance and upstream observations. The lower 
clouds should scatter out as the frontal zone moves through during 
midday. Have included thunder at the upstate taf sites based on 
embedded lightning...through 14z. There could be some gusty northwest winds 
behind the front at kavl through sunset. 


Outlook...VFR Tuesday through Wednesday. An approaching warm front 
and resultant moisture return will bring better chances for 
precipitation/restrictions across the area later in the week...perhaps 
starting Thursday morning. Eventually...a slow moving cold front 
will affect the area Friday or Saturday with more restrictions.
