NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1020 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will continue to be in control of the weather 
through early next week. A weak cold front will approach the region 
from the northwest Wednesday and Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 1020 am EDT Friday...temperatures warming nicely despite scattered 
middle clouds that have ushered in with approaching upper short wave. 
Most sites across the Piedmont are already reporting in the middle 50s 
with the higher elevation sites in the middle to upper 40s. Made 
slight tweaks to sky forecast along with updating temperature trends 
in the extreme near term. Dense fog in and around the little Tennessee 
River valley is starting to erode on schedule. Otherwise...no 
significant changes needed/made with this update. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 330 am...a potent 500 mb shortwave trough is currently tracking 
across the Tennessee Valley...with a fair amount of thick middle and high clouds 
associated with it. Some of that cloud cover has already been 
spreading into the area...and that has helped limit radiational 
cooling somewhat. At the surface...a large area of weak high pressure 
continues to build into the region. The air is fairly 
dry...therefore so far not much fog has developed. It/S also 
difficult to say how much frost is developing out there. Within the 
advisory area...temperatures are generally in the 40s...with a few 30s in 
some of the high elev valleys. I will just resend the product to 
freshen wording. 


For today...the shortwave will cross the area this afternoon...and until 
the back edge of the vorticity maximum exits to the east...there should be a 
fair amount of clouds lingering. This may affect maximum temperatures a 
hair...with thicknesses rising about 5-10 dam...but temperatures similar to 
yesterday. Noticeably warmer in the French Broad valley with less 
cold air advection and wind. 


Tonight...skies should clear out and surface high pressure centered right over 
the southern Appalachians. So with better radiational cooling...temperatures 
should once again dip into the 30s in the mountain valleys...and Lower-Middle 
40s across the Piedmont...generally about 5 degree below normal. There 
will probably be patchy frost again in the NC mountains and foothills. 
May need another frost advisory for Saturday morning...for much of 
the same areas as this morning. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
as of 245 am Friday...on Saturday...a 500 mb short wave will ripple east off the 
Carolina coast as a large ridge centered over Texas builds across the 
majority of the Continental U.S.. rising heights...downslope flow...and 
significant insolation should result in high temperatures 3 to 5 
degrees above normal. Saturday night...a weak cold front is forecast 
to sweep across the region...resulting in mainly mountain clouds. Lows 
are forecast to range from the low 40s across the mountains to the upper 
40s east. 


On Sunday...a broad 500 mb ridge will build across the deep south and 
southeast U.S. At the surface...high pressure will likely increase 
across the southeast. This pattern will support another day of 
rising heights...downslope flow...and plenty of sunlight. Using a 
blend of MOS...highs are forecast to range from the middle 70s within 
the mountain valleys to u70s east. Conditions will remain dry with light 
surface winds. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 315 am Friday...medium range guidance agrees that quiet weather 
will linger through next Wednesday. Monday through Tuesday...the center of a 
590 dm ridge will build off the southeast coast as a broad trough 
develops across the central Continental U.S.. at the surface...large high pressure 
will dominate the southern appalachian region...with return flow 
developing on Tuesday. Temperatures will remain 5 to 10 degrees 
above normal. A weak front may slide across the northern portions of 
the forecast area on Wednesday into Thursday. As the front slowly 
slides south...surface instability may become weak during Wednesday and Thursday 
afternoon. The combination of approaching boundary...weak 
instability...an increasing overall moisture may support isolated to scattered 
rain showers...with isolated mountain thunderstorms and rain on Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions should prevail at all 
terminal sites today into tonight...as dry high pressure continues 
to dominate our weather. There will be a fair amount of passing middle 
to high level clouds through midday...then generally clear by this 
evening through tonight. Winds should remain calm to light northerly through 
this morning...then veering to the west-southwest/SW by early afternoon. Calm wind 
and clear skies tonight may increase chances of fog...especially at kavl. I 
will add a mention of MVFR visibility toward daybreak Saturday. 


Outlook...quiet weather will continue across the region...as deep 
layer ridging settles in through early next week. 


&& 


Gsp watches/warnings/advisories... 
Georgia...none. 
NC...none. 
SC...none.
