NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
725 PM EST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
an upper level system will cross western North Carolina early 
Thursday. Dry high pressure will return Friday and linger into the 
weekend. Expect a cold front to slowly cross our region from the 
north early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 630 PM...cloudiness and light precipitation continue to approach from 
the west...ahead of a short wave. A small patch of light precipitation had 
developed near the South Mountains the precipitation area should move in from 
the west through the evening hours...but some of it will not reach 
the ground initially. Will increase the precipitation chances over NE 
Georgia and the western upstate to acct for this...and at the same time 
will make a few changes to initially lower the precipitation chances over 
the western Piedmont. Expect precipitation coverage to catch up with the forecast 
by late evening. Cooling temperatures should allow the precipitation to fall as some 
snow at the high elevations of the NC mountains...so no changes to the 
advisory. Temperature/dewpt trends are variable...so it is hard to get a 
handle on how that part of the forecast is working out. 


Remainder of previous discussion... 


The forecast models agree fairly well in bringing a strong but 
channeled vorticity maximum with this wave through the region 
overnight...with moist northwest flow developing in it/S wake. The deep 
layer qg forcing should be maximized mainly around 06z to 09z...and 
have the greatest impact across western NC. There is also fairly good 
consensus that the thermal profiles will wet bulb down to support 
snow across the mountains...and even into the lower valleys...during the 
early morning hours. Moisture should be just deep enough to support 
snow Crystal growth...but that may not even be an issue if 
convective showers form as a pool of 7 to 8 degree c/km lapse rates 
crosses the region overnight. This instability...along with a +2 pv 
unit saturated geostrophic epv maximum...may well permit some snow 
showers to break containment east of the Blue Ridge early Thursday 
morning. Brief snow shower activity will thus be possible across the 
Interstate 40 corridor into the Piedmont. However...the duration of 
this activity should be brief enough for little to no accumulations 
to develop with mins generally in the middle 30s. 


The precipitation focus will then steadily shift back to the western NC 
mountain counties near the Tennessee border Thursday morning as a more traditional northwest 
upslope flow snow situation sets up. Anticipate the deepest surface to 
850 mb moisture through 18z...with upslope moisture gradually waning 
through Thursday afternoon. The current Winter Weather Advisory looks well 
placed. Breezy to windy conditions will develop in the higher 
elevations during the peak cold advection Thursday...as the pressure gradient 
tightens behind the departing wave. Expect chilly 30s to lower 40s 
maxes in the mountains...but lower 50s are more likely in the eventual 
downslope across the foothills/Piedmont. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
at 230 PM EST Wednesday...on Thursday evening...a deamplifying upper 
trough axis will be near the East Coast...while a ridge will be 
upstream near the West Coast. A channeled upper vorticity lobe rounding 
the base of the trough will be over central NC...moving away from 
our area. The upper trough will continue to deamplify on Friday as 
the trough axis moves off the East Coast...while weak shortwave 
energy moves across our area from the northwest. By Saturday a nearly zonal 
flow will exist over the southern tier of state by Saturday. 


At the surface...some lingering northwest flow snow showers will persist 
along the Tennessee border Thursday night in the pressure gradient between 
a departing coastal low and high pressure in the MS River Valley. 
Accumulations with this diminishing activity will be minimal. The 
high pressure arrives on Friday...when the models suggest some upper 
level cloud cover spreading over the mountains form the west. This 
cloud cover will extend east across most of the area by Friday 
evening...gradually moving north of the area by late Saturday. 


Temperatures will run around 12 degrees to so below normal on 
Thursday night through Friday night as the cool high pressure 
arrives...despite rising heights aloft. By Saturday...high 
temperatures will rise to within 3 degrees or so of normal as warm 
advection sets up on the back side of the surface high and heights 
aloft continue to rise. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 215 PM EST Wednesday...a weak upper ridge axis will cross the 
region Sat night through sun...with a weak positively tilted upper 
trough passing overhead on Tuesday. Another weak upper trough is 
forecast to cross the region by Wednesday. 


At the surface...high pressure centered over the western Atlantic 
will continue to ridge westward into the forecast area Sat night 
through at least Monday bringing mostly dry conditions with good warm air advection 
southwesterly flow to our County Warning Area. Meanwhile...a surface cold front extending 
from the Great Lakes region to the western Gulf Sat night will 
slowly push southeastward into the southern Appalachians through Monday 
night. Hence...have inherited dry weather Sat night and sun for most 
locations. Probability of precipitation then ramp up into the 20/30s over the mountains zones on 
Monday as the front reaches the Tennessee borderline. The front will then 
slip trough the forecast area Monday night with a cold air damming 
setting up by Tuesday as a Canadian high pressure over the Great Lakes 
region slides east into the northeast states. Probability of precipitation remain on the low 
side given the lack of deep moisture/upper forcing. Wednesday...the new 
12z European model (ecmwf) indicates that another cold front will approach from the 
northwest and crosses the area Wednesday night into Thursday morning while the GFS 
keeps the cad through the period. Give the uncertainty...have kept the 
probability of precipitation in the slight chance range. Temperatures will be around 2-5 
degrees above normal sun/Monday and near normal Tue/Wed. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...VFR through the period. Some high based stratocu will linger 
across the Piedmont through the middle part of the evening. A dynamic 
short wave is expected to move through overnight...with mainly a middle 
level ceiling per upstream observations. Model guidance shows light 
precipitation accompanying the passage of the short wave during the early 
morning hours. The better chance for light precipitation will be to the north 
of the terminal. Have not included precipitation in the taf at this time 
because the chance is too low. If precipitation does fall...it should be in 
form of rain...but a wet snow chance would be not far to the north. 
Winds have backed around to southeast to S ahead of the short wave 
feature...and should gradually veer around to S or SW through the 
rest of the morning on Thursday. A cold front should cross the 
region in the late morning which will bring the wind direction 
around to northwest. Timing could be as early as 13z and as late as 17z... 
so the 16z passage from the earlier taf was kept. Clouds should 
scatter out then. 


Elsewhere...VFR through the period at most terminals. The best chance 
for a ceiling restriction will be at kavl and khky...where the model 
guidance shows the best chance for precipitation. Some of the precipitation could 
fall as wet snow. The chance remains too low to include at this 
time...but future amendments could add it in if confidence GOES up. 


Outlook...dry high pressure will set up over the area Friday through 
the weekend. A cold front will approach from the northwest early 
next week.
