NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
929 PM EST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
a moist air mass will remain across the region before a cold front 
crosses east on Wednesday. Dry Canadian high pressure will build in 
Thursday and persist into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 920 PM...rain is gradually filling in across the SC midlands 
and lower Piedmont as forcing is increasing in response to upper air 
speed maximum lifting out of the lower miss valley. Based upon current 
radar/observational trends...it/S becoming more clear that precipitation 
will primarily affect the eastern half of the forecast area...and 
probability of precipitation have been scaled back to chance across much of the western 
third of the forecast area. This is good news regarding the 
potential for eastern Escarpment/northern NC mountain freezing 
precipitation...as it/S appearing more likely that a cooling easterly 
upslope flow will make it difficult to dislodge the sub-freezing 
temperatures where they currently exist. We still cannot rule out some 
-fzra or fzdz...especially across Avery County...so the Special 
Weather Statement will stand as is. Otherwise...the 00z NAM has 
picked up on the drier trend suggested by the latest observational 
data...so quantitative precipitation forecast has been lowered in all areas through the night...as 
even areas that measure will likely see around a tenth of an inch 
or less. 


As of 650 PM...-ra has been a bit slower to materialize than 
previously anticipated...but is beginning to gradually fill in 
across the lower SC Piedmont/midlands and southern/ctrl Georgia. Probability of precipitation have 
been maintained at previous levels (categorical across the southeast 
third...tapering to chance along the tenn border)...but the onset 
has been delayed a couple of hours. Otherwise...the main concern 
will revolve around the potential for -fzra or -fzdz across the 
northern mountains later tonight. It appears the primary problem area 
will essentially be Avery County...where pockets of freezing temperatures 
are currently observed...and an increasing easterly upslope flow 
will likely provide enough of a cooling mechanism to make it 
difficult to dislodge that cool air overnight. The area of freezing 
rain has been increased in the grids. However...quantitative precipitation forecast will still be 
problematic...as it/S no slam dunk that these areas will even see 
measurable precipitation. Therefore...do not plan to hoist any advisory 
at this time...but will issue an Special Weather Statement to mention the potential for a very 
light glaze...primarily on elevated surfaces. 


As of 230 PM...the stratus deck continues to erode slowly across the 
mountains and lower Piedmont this afternoon...resulting in slightly warmer 
temperatures under more sunshine. Most the area is still overcast or mostly 
cloudy...with temperatures in the 40s to lower 50s. 


Guidance in good agreement on a digging trough to the west and a 
building ridge along the East Coast tonight through Monday. Shortwave 
energy will ride from SW to NE through the flow atop the southeast 
states...inducing a weak wave along a coastal front off the SC coast 
on Monday. Increasing southerly upglide and 850 mb warm air advection flow atop the 
County warning forecast area. Probability of precipitation quickly ramp up to categorical across the southern half of 
the County warning forecast area...and likely to the north by late evening. The coverage 
will be aided by some deep layer q-vector convergence within the 
southwesterly middle-upper flow. However...the moisture depth will be fairly 
shallow...and forcing overall weak. So quantitative precipitation forecast amounts should be generally 
a few hundredths to a tenth of an inch. Although...a tenth to quarter 
inch possible around the Charlotte metropolitan area. One thing to mention 
is that thermal profiles are marginal for some freezing rain and 
sleet across the northern mountains...mainly Avery County. The 12z NAM and 
latest rap keep things just above freezing. I wouldn/T be surprised 
if a few spots near the easterly upslope areas in Avery/Caldwell may 
have brief freezing rain/dz toward daybreak Monday. However...confidence is 
just not high enough to issue a Freezing Rain Advisory at this time. 
If the 18z NAM comes in colder...or if trends seem to warrant 
it...the evening shift may want to issue one or an Special Weather Statement. 
Otherwise...it should be just a cold rain with temperatures in the 30s to lower 
40s. 


On Monday...the middle levels dry out...and the better forcing exits to 
the east. However...a wedge is expected to remain...with low level 
upglide continuing within southwesterly flow. This looks like a good setup 
for areas of -dz persisting...also keeping temperatures down. Going close 
to the raw model temperatures for highs...and keeping a chance of -ra and dz 
through the day. Highs will likely struggle to get into the 40s across 
the I-40 corridor...and only the middle to upper 40s elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 PM EST Sunday...Monday night through Tuesday night...latest 
12z models continue to indicate that surface cold air damming wedge 
will continue across the area as 1030mb high will remain anchored 
over the NE. Meanwhile...strong south-southwesterly flow aloft develops across the 
southeast by Tuesday as a deep upper trough moves east across the central Continental U.S. 
While an upper ridge amplifies over the western Atlantic. This will 
lead to increasing 290k isentropic lift/Atlantic moisture advection 
over our County Warning Area through Tuesday. Hence...have carried chance probability of precipitation for 
light rain with drizzle Monday night into Tuesday morning...ramping up into 
the categorical probability of precipitation with steady rain towards Tuesday night. With 
ongoing precipitation within the cad...afternoon temperatures on Tuesday will run 7-10 
degrees below normal over the Piedmont with 3-5 degrees below over 
the western NC mountains 


Wednesday...the upper trough over the Mississippi Valley will 
advance eastward...becoming positively tiled as it pushes through 
the eastern Continental U.S.. this will lift a surface low into the Ohio Valley 
by 18z...pushing its associated cold front through the forecast area 
between 18z Wednesday and 00z Thursday. Although there will be strong low level wind 
shear along and ahead of the front...the best upper forcing will not 
reach the area until 00z Thursday and areas SBCAPE regime will be shunted 
to the south. Therefore...high shear Low Cape induced severe event 
appears unimpressive at this time. Have inherited a chance of 
afternoon thunder over the western NC Piedmont...portions of the 
upstate SC...NE Georgia and extreme western NC mountain zones to account 
for the presence of weak elevated buoyancy. As for quantitative precipitation forecast...models 
still depict widespread convective activity along the Gulf Coast/southeast 
coast...which could block deep moisture transport into our area. 
With the uncertainty...have gone with the model consensus 
quantitative precipitation forecast...yielding 1-2 inches across the region with up to 3" over the 
Blue Ridge Escarpment. Categorical probability of precipitation were highlighted through 18z 
Wednesday... quickly ramping down to the chance range from west to east 
through 00z Thursday as the front pushes to the east. With increasing warm air advection 
flow...afternoon temperatures will warm into the u50s/60s east of the mountains 
and 50s over the mountains 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 200 PM Sunday...the late week will see the sharp upper trough 
push off the East Coast...leaving quasi-zonal flow over the eastern third 
of the Continental U.S.. dry high pressure will cross the southeast before 
heights fall over the Mississippi Valley as next low rolls off The 
Rockies and across the Great Lakes. Differences between the GFS and ec 
are minor in terms of sensible weather Christmas day and Friday...both 
indicating northwest flow precipitation tapering off Christmas morning followed by dry 
weather most of Friday. In cold advective pattern higher elevations will 
likely see breezy/gusty conditions on Christmas. The cold front 
associated with the Great Lakes low will arrive by Friday night albeit 
without much oomph...the GFS pretty much washing the front out over 
the Carolinas. The ec however diverges at this point...stalling the 
front along the coast and eventually developing a coastal low near 
the Outer Banks Sunday in response to a southern stream shortwave trailing 
the front. Both the 21/00z and 21/12z runs feature this evolution. So 
while the GFS would suggest next weekend will be quiet and dry...ec 
indicates some ptype issues may exist Sunday with wintry partial 
thicknesses and thermal profiles. Temperatures will be at or a little above 
climatology from Thu-Sat...and below normal Sunday if the clouds/precipitation 
materialize. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt...increasing lift through a deep layer of the atmosphere is 
resulting in slowly increasing coverage of -ra across the SC 
Piedmont/midlands and central Georgia...which will continue to expand as 
it lifts NE through the night. -Ra and MVFR chances will increase by 
the end of the evening...with -ra and/or -dz continuing through much 
of the morning hours. Flight category will gradually lower to IFR 
during the pre-dawn hours. Once this occurs...conditions will be 
slow to improve...as cool air wedge is expected to remain locked in 
near the surface through much of the period. Winds should remain NE 
at 5-10 kts through the period. 


Elsewhere...MVFR conditions continue at most terminals this 
evening...and this is likely as high as ceilings will be over the next 
24 hours. Increasing lift through a deep layer of the atmosphere is 
resulting in slowly increasing coverage of -ra across the SC 
Piedmont/midlands and central Georgia...which will continue to expand as 
it lifts NE through the night. Chances for IFR ceilings will increase 
across the area by 06z...and a tempo for IFR has been included at 
all terminals around this time...with IFR ceilings expected to settle in 
no later than 07z or 08z. Once this occurs...conditions will be slow 
to improve...as cool air wedge is expected to remain locked in near 
the surface through much of the period. 


Outlook...with low level moisture locked in place...flight restrictions 
of some sort will linger through at least early Tuesday. A cold 
front will approach on Tuesday from the west and move through on 
Wednesday. Widespread showers with restrictions should arrive Tuesday 
afternoon and will continue until the front clears the area late 
Wednesday. Dry high pressure will return late Wednesday.
