NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
653 am EST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Synopsis... 
a fast moving upper level disturbance will bring a brief chance of 
precipitation to much of the area today. A strong dome of Canadian 
high pressure will settle in over the weekend...ushering in another 
period of cold temperatures. This will be followed by another 
weather system which will produce a better chance of precipitation 
early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 650 am...the models seem to be latching onto more moisture or 
better low level lift east of the mountains the 6z GFS and the latest rap and 
hrrr now have higher pop/more coverage of snow showers across the 
Piedmont. It looks like a band may set up somewhere across the 
upstate. However...confidence is still low. Probability of precipitation may need to be 
adjusted upward if trends on radar look to be lining up with the 
hrrr. Otherwise...forecast looks on track. 


As of 315 am...a vigorous short wave can be seen on water vapor 
imagery diving into the Ohio Valley toward the base of a long wave 
trough along the East Coast. This wave will cross the County warning forecast area just after 
daybreak...and will be accompanied by a 130 knots 300 mb jet. This will 
result in strong middle and upper level forcing from about 12z to 18z 
today. At the surface...a weak Alberta clipper was analyzed over 
MO...and will streak just south of the County warning forecast area during the day. Low level flow 
is backing out of the west-southwest...but struggling to tap into much moisture. 


So the forecast challenge for today will be how much quantitative precipitation forecast will 
accompany the system...as the op models show some spread on coverage 
and amounts. The 00z NAM keeps the Piedmont dry...while the 
other op models have some light amounts. I like the agreement of the 
cams on the simulated reflectivity...showing light precipitation breaking 
out across the mountains right around daybreak...then quickly spreading 
east across the Piedmont during the late morning hours. By early 
afternoon...the models show precipitation confined to westerly upslope areas 
along the Tennessee border. I think much of what the cams are showing would 
be virga...given the moisture mainly in the middle levels. So probability of precipitation show 
likely in the mountains...especially near the Tennessee border...while only slight 
chance to low-end chance east. Forecast profiles show that this would be 
a rain/snow event...with wet-bulb effects allowing for light snow 
showers and/or flurries just about anywhere this morning. Accums 
through the day will be in the mountains...with nothing more than a dusting 
expected elsewhere. Temperatures should be about 10-15 degrees below normal 
under mostly cloudy skies and spotty precipitation. 


Tonight...the clipper system will already be developing a new low 
out over the Atlantic just east of the Outer Banks by early 
evening...while a strong Arctic high (pressure around 1044 mb) 
builds in across the plains to the southeast states. The surface 
pressure gradient never gets that impressive atop the County warning forecast area. 
However...the 850 mb flow ramps up out of the northwest to 40-55 knots across 
the NC mountains with very strong cold air advection. This will result in a down right 
cold and blustery night in the mountains...with the addition of lingering 
moisture for northwest flow snow showers. In fact...the cold air and near 
perfect orthogothal direction could make for efficient snow 
producing showers along the Tennessee line. The expected snow with the 
clipper along with the northwest flow snow should result in total accums of 
2-4" across the usual northwest flow upslope areas. This along with winds 
in the 25-40 miles per hour range and gusts in the 40-55 miles per hour range seems to 
warrant a Winter Weather Advisory. I will start it at noon to 
emcompass the snow accums expected today...and go through 6 am Saturday 
(when snow shower activity will taper off). In addition...temperatures will 
be plummeting into the teens to single digits...so wind chills will 
be in the -5 to -15 f range for most locations above 3500 feet. A Wind 
Chill Advisory will be issued starting at midnight...although some 
locations above 5000 feet or so may start seeing dangerous wind chills 
earlier in the evening. The rest of the County warning forecast area should see clearing 
skies and lingering winds with chilly temperatures about 8-15 degrees below 
normal. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
as of 300 am EST Friday...a broad trough of low pressure will extend 
southward across the eastern United States Saturday from a low 
center over southern Quebec. Isolated to scattered northwest flow snow 
showers could linger across the northern mountains early 
Saturday...but with moisture diminishing through the day. Cold 
morning temperatures and brisk northwest flow will permit bitter wind 
chills to continue through Saturday morning across the 
mountains...and on into Saturday night/Sunday morning across the 
northern mountains. Meanwhile...very cold air will dive southeast 
from Canada into the region on the back side of the trough as the 
associated Arctic high pressure moves across the Midwest on Saturday 
and reaches the eastern Seaboard by late Sunday. In the cold 
airmass...maximum temperatures will run at least 20 degrees below climatology 
in most areas...while Sunday morning mins will be 10 to 20 degrees 
below climatology. A Wind Chill Advisory will continue until middle Sunday 
morning across the northern NC mountains. 


The upper flow will flatten slightly over the east on Sunday as a 
northern stream shortwave digs into the Midwest while a southern 
stream system takes shape from The Four Corners region toward Texas. 
The first hint of middle level upglide moisture will arrive in the County Warning Area 
from the west on Sunday...but with dry low levels precluding any 
precipitation from reaching the ground through late day. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 300 am EST Friday...a wintry mixed mag of precipitation is 
looking likely starting Sunday night into Monday given the very cold 
and dry airmass that will be present over the area before onset. 
There is good model consensus on the energy with the southern stream 
system sharpening up rapidly over the lower MS River Valley Sunday 
night into Monday. Meanwhile...the surface high center to the north 
will retreat offshore. Low level upglide moisture will fill in 
rapidly across our area early Monday...with the 850 mb zero isotherm 
along the southern fringe of the area around daybreak moving rapidly 
toward the northern fringe of the forecast area by middle afternoon. 
Even though cold air damming is very likely...the cold air may only 
stay deeply entrenched east of the northern Blue Ridge given the 
increasingly offshore parent high location. Still...profiles are 
plenty cold for precipitation to start as snow throughout before 
daybreak Monday...with a blossoming warm nose then invading the 
southern tier of the forecast area Monday morning and moving 
northward across the region through the day. 


The best upper forcing actually arrives Monday night as upper jet 
divergence briefly sets up and deep layer q vector forcing crosses 
the region ahead of the increasingly negative tilt upper trough. 
Forcing and moisture will be strongly focused on the region late 
Monday night/early Tuesday with the surface low center likely 
tracking through the central Carolinas...the cad getting further 
pinched off to the north...and the heaviest precipitation during the 
warmest part of the episode. 


So...there are plenty of potential hazards. Significant ice and snow 
accumulations will be possible...mainly over western NC and 
especially along and north of Interstate 40. In addition...heavy quantitative precipitation forecast 
could create some Hydro issues Monday night into Tuesday morning 
with the frontogenesis maximum west of the passing 850 mb low likely 
lingering over the eastern slopes of the mountain. The heavy 
rainfall on top of accumulated snow and ice could create some local 
ice damming problems on shallow sloped roofs. Finally...surface 
based cape values of 200 to 300 j/kg are possible toward daybreak 
Tuesday in the lower Piedmont...with 850 to 500 mb lapse rates of 
6.5 to 7.0 degree c/km...along with backed 50 knots 850 mb flow. This 
could create a brief severe thunderstorm threat from Chester to 
Monroe or thereabouts around daybreak Tuesday. Otherwise...drying 
will develop from the southwest through Tuesday afternoon...with 
northern mountain upslope moisture briefly drying up. 


A reinforcing clipper may dive into the mean eastern trough Tuesday 
night...with the GFS more amplified than the European model (ecmwf)...producing 
mainly additional upslope snow shower coverage over the western 
mountains. Heights will build eastward from the broad western ridge 
Wednesday through Thursday...with associated warming and drying. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...the 6z GFS and latest hrrr have trended much 
wetter with this fast-moving weak low pressure system today. They 
are suggesting that there may be enough moisture and low level support for 
a band of snow showers somewhere across the Piedmont. The hrrr has 
it setting up from kand to south of kuza and kclt. Still have the 
tempo for kclt for 14-18z...but went a little more pessimistic with 
restrictions due to increased chance for a heavier snow shower. 
Still think odds are for mainly virga and flurries for most of the 
areas east of the mountains. At kavl...still expect vcsh for snow 
showers. Ceilings should be mainly VFR...but the pessimistic GFS has 
some MVFR ceilings/visibility due to snow. This evening through the 
overnight...northwest flow behind the departing low will ramp up...scouring 
out the low clouds and moisture east of the mountains...but keeping a 
chance for MVFR or low VFR stratus and periodic snow showers at kavl 
with gusty north-northwest winds. Winds east of the mountains will favor NE through 
about midday or early afternoon...then switch to SW for this afternoon and 
evening. Then shift to northwest late evening. 


Outlook...an Arctic air mass will build over the region this 
weekend...with upslope clouds on the west side of the Appalachians. 
A significant winter weather system is possible early next week.
