NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
231 am EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Synopsis... 
a moist cold front will slowly cross the region from the northwest 
today...before cool and dry high pressure builds in Friday and 
modifies warmer through the weekend. Expect a couple of low pressure 
systems to develop out of the Gulf next week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 230 am...wavy cold front passed through kavl shortly after 06 
UTC and will probably take until at least midday to clear the 
balance of the County warning forecast area. Still expecting to see widespread development 
of precipitation in the wake of the front in a classic anafront orientation. 


Advancement of surface freezing line still upstream of the NC mountains 
and anything more then light icing in the highest elevations is 
doubtful by daybreak. But as the morning wears on...sub-freezing 
surface temperatures will work steadily southeast into the NC mountains and lower in 
elevation. With mountain forecast soundings lingering prominent warm nose through 
18z...any wintry precipitation other than freezing rain is doubtful. 


With critical middle-level thickness values encroaching this afternoon 
the chances for mainly higher elevations to pick up a light 
accumulation of snow and/or sleet becomes more likely. 


Will bank on the bulk of the precipitation shield to clear the mountains by 
sunset and the rest of the County warning forecast area...mid-evening at the latest. 


Expect a morning/non-diurnal high temperatures for just about everyone 
today within the low level cold air advection regime and precipitation. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Saturday night/... 
at 230 am EST Thursday...on Friday morning a broad upper trough will 
be centered over the center of the nation....while an upper low will 
be over northwest Mexico. A pair of shortwaves will be moving through the 
base of the trough and across the southern Appalachians later in the 
day. The trough deamplifies somewhat by Saturday morning...resulting 
in nearly zonal flow over the southeast. A channeled vorticity maximum moves 
through the base of the trough and across the central Appalachians 
on Saturday night. 


At the surface...on Friday morning a strong cold front will be over 
central Florida...with moisture extending north to S Georgia and the SC coast. 
Meanwhile...high pressure centered over the Ohio River valley will 
extend form New England to the. By Friday evening the front in Florida 
and the ridge to the north settle slowly S. By Saturday morning the 
surface high will extend from Delaware to Texas...while the cold front will 
have reaches S Florida. 


A cold front approaches the southern Appalachians from the northwest late 
Saturday...crossing the region Saturday night. Moisture with this 
boundary is quite limited...an nor precipitation is expected with 
it. High pressure builds back over the area from in the wake of the 
front Saturday night. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
as of 220 am EST Thursday...the ext range will begin with a rather 
nice day on sun. Developing upper confluence off the atl coast will 
force a surface high pressure area east across the forecast area and keep winds 
light and S/ly. Meanwhile...moisture levels will remain low except 
for some cirrus increasing from the west. Maximum temperatures will be right around 
or a little above normal. 


The forecast becomes more uncertain through the work week as the models 
have varying ideas with the split flow and placement of the 300 mb jet 
core. The 00z European model (ecmwf) is more aggressive with bringing gom moisture 
over the southeast as it develops cyclogenesis over the northern Gulf in 
response to a broad but deepening ulvl trough through 12z Tuesday. The GFS on 
the other hand...keeps dominate hipres anchored over the middle atl and 
a dry NE/ly flow under flat ridging aloft. The CMC reg sides more 
with the GFS and this will be given more weight in the forecast grids. 
Thus...probability of precipitation were reduced Monday/Tuesday to slt north and low/end chance 
south. 


There remains much uncertainty for Wednesday as the GFS takes the 
lead in developing a northward moving gom low over the deep south 
instigating widespread isent/wedge -shra...while the European model (ecmwf) keeps a 
stationary front and deep moisture focused south of the forecast area with 
minimal precipitation making it to the southern zones. So...once again probability of precipitation were 
lowered most areas with nothing higher than low end chance though 
the day. With the non/zero probability of precipitation across the NC mountains Monday through 
Wednesday....there could be some diurnal high elevation -snsh with no 
sigfnt accums each morning. Temperatures are forecast/d right around normal 
Mon/Wed...which is a little under MOS guidance due to uncertainty 
with the flow and moisture levels. 


&& 


Aviation /08z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt and the Piedmont terminals...shower chances will slowly 
increase overnight ahead of an approaching cold front with southerly 
winds likely to continue through daybreak. A tricky timing situation 
exists for the period at and after sunrise when a wind shift to 
north becomes likely...ceilings crash to IFR and rainfall covering become 
categorical. An increasingly brisk north-northeasterly flow is likely to develop 
as the day wears on with a slow improvement in ceiling restrictions 
through sunset. Bonafide rain chances should also decrease 
dramatically after sunset as ceilings continue to improve. 


At kavl...shower and ceiling restriction chances quickly increase 
overnight with steady rain and IFR ceilings likely to continue into 
a good part of the daylight hours. It remains to be seen if 
temperatures can fall enough for freezing rain later this afternoon 
and will maintain a probability group to address threat. IFR ceilings should 
improve to MVFR before sunset. Southerly winds should switch to northwest within 
the next few hours...then gusty northerly near daybreak and continuing 
through the day. 


Outlook...drying conditions will continue to overspread the forecast area 
tonight resulting in a return to VFR conditions before daybreak 
on Friday. VFR conditions are expected to persist then through the 
weekend.
