... Winter Weather Advisory in effect until noon EST Friday...

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued
a Winter Weather Advisory for black ice... which is in effect until
noon EST Friday.

Piedmont.

* Hazards... areas of black ice on roadways and other hard
surfaces.

* Timing... developing tonight and continuing through Friday
morning.

* Impacts... potentially hazardous travel conditions.

* Temperatures... falling into the upper teens to mid 20s.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1017 PM EST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Synopsis... 
cool and dry high pressure will build across the region on Friday... 
then gradually warming through the weekend. Expect a couple of low 
pressure systems to develop out of the Gulf next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
as of 920 PM...precipitation will be east of the area soon. Cannot rule out 
some lingering flurries across the Tennessee border counties...but no 
additional accums expected. Attention turns toward the cold 
temperatures overnight. With the earlier snow/rain across the NC 
mountains and the rain across the NC foothills and Piedmont...the very 
cold temperatures may lead to areas of black ice overnight. Will issue a 
black ice advisory for these areas. Although there was also rain 
across the upstate and NE Georgia...temperatures will not be quite as cold over 
these areas. Therefore...will issue an Special Weather Statement for patchy black ice 
here. Otherwise...going forecast of diminishing winds and gradually 
clearing skies is on track with only minor changes. 


As of 635 PM...main area of precipitation moving into the Piedmont at this time and 
should be east of the area by 10 PM. There will be some lingering snow 
across the Tennessee border counties...but only very light or no additional 
accums are expected. Given the lingering wet roads and very cold 
temperatures across NC...will issue a west-southwest for black ice after the precipitation 
ends...to avoid confusion with any wintry precipitation potential. Temperatures 
will be a little warmer over the upstate and NE Georgia...so expect only 
patchy black ice there. Will issue an Special Weather Statement for these locations. 
Otherwise...expect the windy conditions across the mountains to slowly 
diminish overnight...with winds elsewhere diminishing sooner. Cannot 
completely rule out a sleet pellet or snow flake outside of the 
mountains...but they would be very brief with no accums. Have updated 
temperature trends to follow latest conditions and guidance...which keeps 
lows as is...but shows a slower decline until later this evening or 
overnight. 


As of 230 PM...precipitation shield seems to be thinning/weakening...as 
best upper divergence (right entrance jet region) shifts east and 
upglide over the shallow frontal zone diminishes. This on top of 
still no reports of freezing rain or snow in the mountains has ME 
skeptical that we/ll have any issues in the NC mountains/west-southwest area late 
this afternoon. With that said...I still have enough overlap of likely probability of precipitation 
and some sub-freezing temperatures creeping in along the Tennessee line that I 
will let the west-southwest ride with this update. It is set to expire at 6 PM. 


Elsewhere...the front is slowly progressing southward through the 
upstate and NE Georgia. Some sites have reported some Stout gusty winds 
with the frontal passage and notable temperature drops of 10-20 degree within an hour or 
two/S time. 


Tonight...mentionable pop completely ends by 06z across the County warning forecast area...but 
clouds and somewhat breezy north/NE winds linger overnight. Temperatures are 
expected to drop into teens to lower 20s in the mountains and generally middle 
20s to lower 30s across the Piedmont. The mountains will see temperatures drop below 
freezing fairly quickly this evening. So some sort of black ice 
threat is possible...and an Special Weather Statement or west-southwest may be needed. 
However...little or no snow has fallen so far...so that may help 
limit ice potential if roads can dry off this evening. 


Friday...the axis of a positively-tilted upper trough will swing through 
the area...while cold dry high pressure builds in from the north. Temperatures 
will be about 15-20 degree below normal under sunny to mostly sunny 
skies. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
as of 1230 PM EST Thursday...the short range part of the forecast 
appears to be rather quiet...with the upper pattern slowly 
deamplifying. The pattern will support weakening high pressure 
across most of the southeast through the better part of the 
weekend...with temperatures rebounding closer to normal. Once we get to 
Sunday...the confluent area of the split upper flow will migrate eastward 
over the middle-Atlantic and Carolinas. This development will make the 
timing of the next system...in the southern branch of the split flow...a 
bit more problematic. For now...have elected to keep the development 
of precipitation off to the west through the end of daylight on Sunday... 
but this could easily have to be moved up. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 2 PM EST Thursday...the medium range forecast picks up at 00z on 
Monday with persistent broad upper troffing over the northeastern 
Continental U.S. And weak upper ridging beginning to build over the southeast region. 
Over the next couple of days...a southern stream trough persists and 
amplifies over the Texas/New Mexico region and tries to spin off a 
closed 500 mb low. At the same time...flat upper ridging persists over 
the forecast area through the remainder of the medium range. It is 
noteworthy that the European model (ecmwf) maintains an embedded 500 mb shortwave within 
the southern stream and moves the feature to our doorstep by new day 
7...yet this feature is not depicted on the newer run of the GFS. 


At the surface...the long range models are coming into better agreement 
with regards to the departure of the high to our east early Monday. 
The models have a broad area of deep layer moisture overspreading the 
County warning forecast area from the SW through the day. By 00z Tuesday...deep layer moisture is 
over the majority of the forecast area and remains in place well into 
Wednesday. Beyond this point...the GFS strengthens the parent high to our 
north and dries the Carolinas out from north to south so by 12z 
Thursday...the entire County warning forecast area is dry. The European model (ecmwf)...however...keeps the deep 
moisture over the region through new day 7. 


As for the sensible forecast...I increased probability of precipitation to solid chance for most 
of the County warning forecast area by Monday evening accounting for a more moist GFS solution. 
I kept solid chance probability of precipitation for Tuesday and early Wednesday with slight to solid 
chance for the remainder of the period owing to a pattern that is 
weakly forced overall. I lowered temperatures a degree or 2 for Tuesday and 
Wednesday with highs now just below climatology. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...rain should push east of the area by 02z. Cannot rule out 
some additional IFR ceilings until then. Otherwise...low MVFR ceilings 
become higher MVFR by 09z...then low VFR by 12z. Ceilings scatter out by 
15z...with VFR through the end of the period. Northeasterly winds continue through 
the period...with some low end gusts possible this evening. 


Elsewhere...precipitation will push east of the area by 02z. Cannot rule 
out some IFR ceilings until then...but MVFR will be the predominate 
flight category. Kavl could see some snow showers until 02z as well. 
Ceilings will become low VFR toward daybreak then scatter out for the 
rest of the day. Northerly winds with low end gust potential become northeasterly 
overnight...then light southerly across SC. Winds will turn more slowly at 
kand. Kavl will see strong northerly wind slowly diminishing through the 
period. 


Outlook...VFR conditions expected through the weekend.
