NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1043 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
an unseasonably cold air mass will remain over the region into 
Friday. A subtropical low will develop to our south on Friday and 
Saturday but is expected to remain to our south and east. A deep upper 
trough arrives from the west to start the weekend. By early next 
week...temperatures should range close to normal ahead of an 
approaching cold front. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 930 PM EDT Wednesday...latest guidance consensus has not 
changed much regarding frost/freeze potential tonight therefore 
updated relevant products for the evening. Otherwise...tweaked 
temperature and dewpoint trends to reflect latest observations and 
left the remainder of the forecast as is. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 215 PM...skies remain clear across the forecast area as cold high pressure 
ridges down the East Coast. Confluence ahead of upper trough will 
allow this high to persist through Thursday. However...as the high 
drifts further NE...easterly flow off the Atlantic will increase 
tonight. Earlier guidance runs indicated enough moisture accompanied 
this flow to expect low clouds to reach the eastern zones around 
daybreak Thursday. This is no longer the favored solution. Forecast soundings 
however do not support clouds or fog making it this far inland...and 
models do not generate cloud cover in llvls. 


A few cirrus will begin to filter in ahead of the incoming upper 
trough...but otherwise skies should be clear. Partial thicknesses 
increase slightly and the pressure gradient builds slightly 
overnight. Thus...I expect temperatures generally just slightly warmer than 
those this morning. Tried to use this morning/S mins to capture local 
effects by blending these with favored guidance blend. This brings 
temperatures down to 31-32f in portions of the zones from 
Greenville/Greenwood east. Have expanded freeze warning to those 
zones...and to Habersham. Conditions in the Savannah valley are not 
particularly frosty due to the continued breezes and somewhat dry 
dewpoints. Nonetheless some patchy frost is likely so they will 
remain in the frost advisory. 


The easterly flow over the wedgelike surface high does bring some 
low-middle cloudiness into the lower Piedmont by Thursday afternoon. Some 
enhanced lift along the Blue Ridge might drive some additional cloud 
development later in the day. The moisture remains shallow and 
precipitation chances remain too small to mention. Highs should rebound a 
bit...but will remain two or three categories below normal with the 
cold airmass still in play. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 230 PM Wednesday...a stubborn area of surface high pressure 
will remain situated from Maine...through the Virginia's and the 
Carolina's Thursday night...before easing off into the Atlantic. 


Meanwhile southern stream energy will work across Texas Thursday 
night and into the northern Gulf of Mexico Friday and Friday night. 
It appears this stream of energy will be out of phase with its 
parent northern stream energy. Nevertheless...the suite of models 
continue to indicate this southern stream feature will be a 
significant weather maker as the upper (h5) low cuts off and a 
surface low pressure reflection moves east across the northern parts 
of the Gulf of Mexico and into Florida. 


Initially time height cross sections and BUFKIT data suggest that 
surface to 850 mb moisture on the back side of the retreating high will 
allow low clouds to entrain into our region Thursday night and 
Friday. Both the NAM and GFS (and even the canadian) have trended to 
the south with the cutting off of the upper low and ultimate track 
of the surface reflection. However...even with these events the 
Canadian model continues to bring copious amounts of precipitation 
north into our County Warning Area (cwa) Friday into Saturday 
morning. This appears unreasonable considering the forecast 
southward shift...and an apparent confluent zone setting up to the 
north. This confluent zone would "more or less" give US a hint at 
the northward extent of the precipitation field. I can not say with 
a high degree of confidence that we will not have any patchy light 
rain or sprinkles...since a hand full of the GFS ensembles do bring 
a chance of rain into the upstate at the end of the work week. 
However...enough evidence in the models is currently swaying ME to 
keep those slight chance probability of precipitation out of the forecast for now...and to 
continue to have a beefy cloud cover. Judging by some of our 
surrounding neighbors we are not far off. 


We should start to see a gradual recovery in temperatures (upward 
swing) particularly Saturday...and even more so if the bulk of the 
cloud and precipitation shield remains to our south. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 145 PM Wednesday...the medium range forecast picks up at 00z on 
Sunday with a southern stream 500 mb low having closed off over Florida 
and otherwise weak upper ridging just to its west. The long range 
models indicate that the low will slowly drift eastward and 
eventually open back up by early next week. At the same time...a 
couple of well defined upper shortwaves will drift across the 
Southern Plains and to our doorstep by late Monday/early Tuesday. Beyond 
this...its looking like another round of upper ridging will move 
back over the region for day 7 and beyond. 


At the surface...there appears to be more uncertainty among the model 
solutions with respect to roughly the first half of the forecast period. The latest 
GFS maintains stronger Canadian high pressure to our north and keeps 
any deeper moisture associated with a surface low that tries to spin up 
to our south...to our south and east. On the other hand...the European model (ecmwf) 
develops a stronger low by the start of the period 00z sun and 
spreads its associated moisture shield into our southern zones. The 
European model (ecmwf) is also quite a bit slower moving the low NE and away from the 
Carolinas compared to the GFS which I have placed more confidence in 
for the time being. As for the sensible forecast...the forecast is dry on 
sun with probability of precipitation ramping up slowly on Monday to slight chance across the 
County warning forecast area and then slight chance to solid chance on Tuesday. Wednesday is looking 
mostly dry at this point. Temperatures should start out around normal and 
slowly warm on days 6 and 7. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions will prevail through the 
period as high pressure dominates across the region. Skies will 
remain sky clear overnight with a few/scattered high level cirrus mixing in 
after daybreak...persisting through the afternoon hours. East-northeast 
winds will remain in the 5-8kts range overnight before increasing to 
the 10-12kts range around the 13-14z timeframe. Pressure gradient 
forces along the base of extending wedge could allow for some minor 
gusting middle/late morning...but should subside by around noon as the 
gradient relaxes somewhat. Thus added tempos at all SC sites where 
the pg is strongest. 


Outlook...VFR expected Thursday afternoon but with low VFR clouds developing 
in moist flow from the coast. Ceiling and visibility restrictions 
will return Friday and Saturday as a cold front approaches from the 
west and a low pressure system develops along the coast.
