NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
312 PM EST sun Feb 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will cross the Appalachians late tonight with a 
trailing cold front moving over the area early Monday morning. Cool 
and dry high pressure will build in the fronts wake and linger into 
early Wednesday. Another cold front will move into the area from the 
northwest on Thursday...with dry high pressure spreading back over 
the region by the end of the work week. 


&& 


Near term /through Monday/... 
as of 245 PM EST Sunday...latest radar shows an area of precipitation 
moving in across NE Georgia and SW mountains as deep moisture and upper 
diffluent flow aloft regime ahead of an approaching upper level 
trough moves in from the west. As the upper trough continues to 
progress eastward across the Mississippi Valley tonight...a 
deepening surface low will track into the Ohio Valley...pushing its 
associated cold front through the forecast area between 6-12z Monday. 
Therefore...probability of precipitation quickly ramp up from west to east through the 
evening...peaking categorical range over entire County Warning Area during the frontal passage 
late tonight into early Monday morning. The main highlight will be a 
formation of black ice...1-2 inches of accumulating snow and gusty 
northwest winds across the NC mountains toward daybreak on Monday when temperatures 
quickly fall below freezing in light of strong 40-50kts of 850mb cold air advection 
winds developing behind the front. Therefore...will issue a Winter 
Weather Advisory across the Tennessee border counties and portions of NE Georgia 
mountains effective from 5am Monday to 10am Tuesday for black ice...accumulating 
snow and gusty winds. Elsewhere across the NC mountain/adjacent foothills 
zones will be under Wind Advisory between 7am-7pm Monday where patchy black 
ice formation is expected but gusty winds of 30-40mph will be 
present. Elsewhere east of the mountains will see solid rainfall 
ranging from 0.25-0.5" over the NC Piedmont to 0.75"-1.0" over the 
upstate SC and NE Georgia. Model sounding indicates that strong low level 
0-3km bulk wind shear of 30-40kts will be present during the 
frontal passage...but with the lack of SBCAPE...no severe weather is 
expected at this time. As the front pushes off to the east by Monday 
morning...precipitation should taper off from west to east. However...northwest 
snow will continue across the Tennessee borderline through the afternoon 
before drying out by the evening. With prevailing warm air advection southwesterly flow 
ahead of the front...overnight temperatures should remain 7-10 degrees 
above normal over the Piedmont with 3-5 degrees above normal over 
the NC mountains however...afternoon temperatures will stay 3-5 degrees below 
normal over the NC mountains due to strong cold air advection effect. Areas over the 
Piedmont will see near normal temperatures as downsloping effect will off 
set the cold air advection. 


&& 


Short term /Monday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 230 am EST Sunday...on Tuesday...the center of high pressure 
will slide west to east across the southern appalachian region on 
Tuesday...under zonal middle level flow. On Wednesday..the center of 
the high will shift over the western Atlantic as low pressure 
develop near the Louisiana coast. Conditions both days will feature 
dry conditions with light winds. On Tuesday...temperatures will 
range well below normal...with morning lows ranging from the teens 
to near 20 across the mountains...lower to middle 20s east. Tuesday highs 
will be limited by the cold start and lingering cool 
thicknesses...ranging from the low to middle 40s across the mountains to 
upper 40s east. On Wednesday...return flow will develop across the 
region ahead of an approaching cold front and low pressure system. 
Based on a blend of guidance...temperatures on Wednesday should 
verify very close to normals. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
as of 130 PM Sunday...the 12z guidance has come into better 
agreement on the next system to affect the region late Wednesday 
through Thursday night. A shortwave trough will dig and progress across the 
Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley late Wednesday...with the axis crossing 
the area on Thursday. Deep layer q-vector convergence associated 
with the wave will maximize across the County warning forecast area around 00z Friday per model 
consensus. At the surface...a southern stream low pressure system is still 
prognosticated to develop in the Gulf of Mexico in response to an ejecting 
cutoff low over Mexico. The models continue to suppress the moisture 
and lift with this system well to our south. So the main surface feature 
to impact our area will be a cold front that will drop out of the northwest 
on Thursday. This front will have little moisture to work with...especially 
east of the mountains where low level westerly flow will not be able to tap into 
the Gulf moisture. So the latest forecast will advertise just slight chance 
pop for Thursday...with a little low-end chance along the Tennessee border 
where upslope and moisture will be greatest with the front. Looking 
at the GFS forecast soundings...still could see some rain/snow mix outside 
the mountains (maybe as sleet)...as dry sub-cloud layer may wet-bulb 
temperatures down. But overall...no significant impacts expected with this 
system. 


Behind the front Friday through Sunday...cold high pressure builds in from 
the northwest...but quickly shifts east and moderates...resulting in dry weather 
with below normal temperatures for Friday...but returning to near or above 
normal temperatures by Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Sunday through Friday/... 
at kclt...VFR ceilings will prevail at least through the evening before 
MVFR clouds and precipitation overspreading the area by around 3z as a cold 
front approaches from the west. The heaviest precipitation and IFR ceilings 
will occur between 6-12z when the front crosses the area. Winds will 
stay out of the south-southwest along and ahead of the front...veering to the 
west-southwest behind the front by around 14z. With tight surface pressure 
gradient setting up along and behind the front...gusty south-southwest winds of 
15-20kts will develop tonight. IFR ceilings should lift to VFR and 
stronger gusty west-southwest winds of 15-27kts will take place by around 14z 
as the front pushes off to the east. 


Elsewhere...MVFR clouds will continue to spread in from the west 
ahead of an approaching cold front from the west. IFR ceilings and 
precipitation will occur tonight into early Monday morning as the front 
crosses the region. With strong 850mb south-southwesterly low level jet pushes in ahead 
of the front...south-southwest winds will increase to around 10-15kts through 
tonight. Behind the front...tightening pressure gradient over the 
area will be responsible for the development of gusty west-northwest/northwest winds 
of 15-25kts toward 18z (kavl will see stronger north-northwest wind gusts to 
around 30kts. Conditions should dry out and ceilings should rise to VFR 
by Monday morning as the front pushes off to the east. 


Outlook...rain and lower ceilings/visibility expected in parts of the area 
into Monday morning. Drying northwest flow is expected on the back side of the 
system by late Monday...but will be accompanied by gusty winds...especially 
at kavl. Another moist low pressure system may affect the region 
late in the week.
