NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
637 am EDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the region from the northwest tonight 
bringing cooler air to the area for the upcoming week. Expect dry 
weather for the whole week...then next weekend could have some rain 
for part of the region. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1030 UTC update...sky cover has been updated per satellite imagery 
and observations. Areas of fog have been adjusted per observations. 
Winds were updated to incorporate the 06z NAM. 


At 245 am EDT Sunday...an upper trough will amplify over the Great 
Lakes today...while an upper low weakens as it moves up the Carolina 
coast. The upper trough axis reaches the East Coast tonight...while 
a strong shortwave moving into its base approached the southern 
Appalachians. 


Dry high pressure between a low off the Carolinas coast and an 
approaching cold front now in the Ohio River valley will break down 
this morning. The cold front will reach the southern Appalachians by 
this evening...preceded by convection. Cape appears to be limited to 
under 1000 j/kg...especially east of the mountains...but wind shear 
and dry air aloft will be present. Gusty winds and hail cannot be 
ruled out. The front crosses the foothills and Piedmont this 
evening. The models differ slightly on the timing of the 
boundary...but by daybreak Monday it appears to be just about out of 
our area. 


High temperatures today will run several categories above normal in 
warm advection ahead of the front. Minimum temperatures will run a 
bit above normal as Post frontal winds remain up and some cloud 
cover lingers. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
as of 2 am EDT Sunday...the short term forecast period initializes 
Monday morning at 12z with the cold front moving southeast across the area. 
The NAM retains significantly more clouds and precipitation associated with 
the frontal passage than the other models. Assuming that the NAM is 
the outlier model in this case...have decided to keep any chance of 
precipitation outside of the mountains at a very minimum only slight pop 
for far southeast counties of the Carolina Piedmont Monday morning. Dry air 
filters in for the rest of the day as the surface high to our north 
exerts more influence into our region into middle week. If the slower 
solution of frontal passage on the NAM becomes the end 
version...then we will have to increase probability of precipitation a bit along and southeast of 
I-85 on Monday. Temperatures will be cooling going from just a couple of 
degrees below normal Monday to two categories below normal into middle 
week. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
as of 145 am Sunday...the medium range forecast picks up at 12z on 
Wednesday under an upper ridge with surface high pressure over New 
England and a cool NE flow into our region. Although both the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) are very similar with a broad upper ridge from The Rockies 
to the east...there are more differences by day 7. The ridge will 
hold over the east while a trough digs across the western states 
days 6 and 7. 


At the surface...strong Canadian high pressure will be centered to 
our north with cool and dry air over the forecast area. For Thursday and 
Friday the center of the high shifts a bit east with the wind going 
from NE to from a more easterly direction with a moist fetch off the 
Atlantic. This flow will create an increase in clouds and bring 
slight probability of precipitation to the eastern and southern forecast zones. Thus...the 
slight chance probability of precipitation will initially be over the Piedmont...then over 
the weekend the flux of moisture should affect NE Georgia and the upstate 
more than the NC Piedmont. The GFS has a plume of moisture rotating 
north from the eastern Gulf over the weekend moving across Alabama and Georgia 
then into Tennessee by Saturday night. The ec on the other hand is drier 
for our region over the weekend...but certainly shows a large plume 
of moisture moving north from the Gulf Saturday night...but farther 
west than the GFS moisture plume. 


Although we will be under an upper ridge through this period...the 
cool surface high to our north will keep temperatures a few degrees below 
normal from day 4 through day 7. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt...VFR. High clouds associated with a coastal low will pass 
over the field early this morning. Winds and dew point depressions 
are not especially favorable fog this morning. Cloud cover will 
increase this afternoon and evening ahead of an approaching cold 
front...and model time heights suggest a low VFR ceilings setting up. 
The chance of convection today and tonight is not great enough to 
mention. Light north winds will back to SW and increase today...veering 
northwest behind the front late tonight. Winds will stay up ahead of the 
front this evening...and behind it overnight. 


Foothills sites except kavl...high level cirrus related to a coastal 
low will remain to the east this morning. Fog will persist into middle 
morning at kand. At kgsp/kgmu dew point depression remain just great 
enough to keep fog at Bay. At khky winds are keeping fog in check. 
Clouds will increase with the approach of a cold front today...and 
model time heights suggest low VFR ceilings developing. Convective 
chances will be too low to mention. Light northwest winds will back to SW 
and increase today...veering northwest and remaining up behind the cold 
front late tonight. 


At kavl...the low fog restrictions will persist until middle morning. 
Fog should then burn off quickly. An approaching cold front will 
bring increasing clouds and precipitation...but confidence is too 
low for restrictions. Model time heights support a low VFR ceiling 
however. Northwest wind will increase today a cold front arrives... 
remaining up after its passage late tonight. Model time heights 
suggest an MVFR ceiling late tonight if enough cloud cover remains 
behind the departing front. 


Outlook...high pressure builds back in early next week with VFR 
conditions. Moisture may return from the coast by late in the week.
