NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
508 PM EDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move off the eastern Seaboard tonight. A weak 
cold front will cross the region from the northwest on Tuesday. Dry 
high pressure will gradually return middle to late week and linger into 
the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
as of 500 PM...only a few minor tweaks to T/dew point and sky grids heading 
into the early evening hours. Otherwise...forecast looks on track. 


As of 245 PM EDT...water vapor imagery shows upper low spinning 
across lower Michigan...with the first short wave being pushed into eastern 
Kentucky. The first wave is accompanied by a band of ceilings consisting of 
middle level clouds. The model plane section relative humidity data...point relative humidity data 
and BUFKIT information all show this slug of moisture crossing our 
forecast area tonight. The models insist that our northern mountains 
could still squeeze out a few sprinkles...and we will follow that 
course. 


Meanwhile once that first band of clouds pass...and before the next 
surface front makes it into our region...there appears to be a 
window of opportunity with light winds and potential fog development 
for a few hours late tonight/very early Tuesday morning...in parts 
of the central and southern NC river valleys...NE Georgia and the northwest portions 
of upstate SC. We will add fog to this forecast. Temperatures should 
be above readings of last night with the period of clouds moving 
through. 


The cold front will cross our region Tuesday morning. Nice 
perpendicular look of the 850 mb height contours...relative to the 850 mb 
thermal pattern...suggests very good cross contouring...yielding 
gusty winds. Upslope flow...along with a strong 2dry short wave Tuesday 
afternoon...will help with the generation of scattered showers. 


The models are not too keen on cold air cumulus elsewhere...but would be 
surprised if they were absent. We have followed an average 
temperature forecast based on our most reliable model guide set. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
as of 205 PM EDT Monday...a strong upper low will move off the 
middle-Atlantic coast Tuesday night. A short wave ridge is forecast to 
build over the southeast states in its wake Wednesday into Thursday. Deep layer north/northwest 
flow will persist through Wednesday along with associated cold advection. 
Thicknesses will rebound some on Thursday as upper heights increase. Dry 
weather is expected through Thursday as the low to the NE pulls away and 
surface high pressure to the northwest slowly builds toward the area. The 
exception to the totally dry forecast may be a few sprinkles in the 
northern mountains Tuesday night due to upslope northwesterly flow. Model time 
heights indicate generally clear conditions will persist east of the 
mountains in the downslope flow. However over the mountains Tuesday 
night...some strato cumulus ceilings are likely. Model soundings 
over the mountains indicate that enough low level moisture will 
persist into Thursday for patchy clouds. 


Winds will be gusty in the mountains Tuesday night and Wednesday in the cold 
advection regime. Cool autumn temperatures are expected with maximum temperatures 
5-10 degrees below climatology on Wednesday. Despite the cool regime...current 
indications are that clouds and/or wind will preclude much of a 
frost freeze concern in the mountains Tuesday night...except perhaps in the 
sheltered valleys of the Southwest Mountains (where the frost/freeze 
program has already ended for the season). With winds diminishing 
Wednesday night...a better case can be made for frost and areas 
of freezing temperatures. However....it appears the SW mountains will be 
the coldest again while areas across the central mountains where the 
frost/freeze program has not ended may stay mixed enough to preclude 
any freeze issues. Temperatures will modeerate on Thursday...but remain below 
climatology. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
as of 215 PM Monday...even though the 12z GFS depicts a rather 
vigorous looking upper trough moving southeast through the area Thursday night 
into Friday...it appears that the system will be moisture starved and 
hence no precipitation associated with it. Model time heights indicate 
perhaps some high level cloudiness only. Beyond that...an upper 
ridge is forecast to move eastwward from the 4-corners area to over 
the eastern U.S. By Sun night and then off the East Coast on Monday. 
Surface high pressure will dominate the weather regime as it 
eventually migrates to off the southeast coast on Monday. Downslope flow on 
Friday looks to overcome the weak cold advection associated with the 
upper trough and allow for near climatology maximum temperatures. Temperatures will then 
slowly warm to above climatology the remainder of the period. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Monday through Saturday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...any left over cumulus will dissipate at Sundown 
around the clt airfield. Meanwhile...the first short wave in a developing 
northwesterly flow aloft...will pivot across the region tonight. A band of 
both middle and high level clouds should be noted. Once they pass... 
there will be a pause before the frontal pattern (surface front) 
crosses the field Tuesday morning. This should yield some scattered cold 
air strato cumulus clouds...around 3k...and an uptick in the winds. We 
would expect for the later half of Tuesday for some gusty northwesterly winds 
to materialize. The front...and associated packets of energy... 
should be rather moisture starved therefore no precipitation is 
expected. 


Elsehwere not much change in the philosophy of the aforementioned 
discussion above. The front will come through the mountains a few 
hours earlier...and perhaps a little later Tuesday morning in parts 
of the southern upstate of SC. We do carry a brief visibility 
restriction at avl for a few predawn hours Tuesday. This is before 
the cold air advection kicks in...and after the first wave of clouds move by. It 
appears points to the south have a better opportunity for fog 
conditions. 


Outlook...blustery and cooler for the middle part of the week...then 
warming the later portions. Gusty mountain winds Tuesday night seem 
to be the only aviation concern apparent at this time.
