NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
639 am EDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will move east of the area this morning. A trailing 
upper level disturbance will then cross the area through tonight. 
Dry and seasonally cold high pressure will settle in over the 
weekend. A low pressure clipper system and associated cold front 
will pass over the region on Sunday night or Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
as of 630 am EDT Friday...tweaked probability of precipitation to account for most recent 
radar trends which indicate rain showers expansion associated with intruding 
upper trough axis. Snow levels have fallen enough along some of the 
higher peaks and ridgetops of western NC such that snow showers 
could occur...however still not expecting any significant 
accumulation as the bulk of the precipitation will remain just east. 
Otherwise...tweaked temperatures and dewpoints to better reflect 
observational trends and left the remainder of the forecast as is. 


Previous discussion... 


As of 330 am EDT Friday...nearly phased northern/southern stream 
upper trough pattern yielding full latitude trough axis advection across 
the central/southern Continental U.S. This morning. Surface wave out ahead 
across the midatlantic continues to push a cold front through the 
southern Apps at this time. Currently...the cold front is sliding 
into/through the i85 corridor where winds have veered sharply to the 
north. The front itself can actually be seen on radar via the kgsp 
half degree tilt as it pushes through the gsp area. Precipitation 
associated with this frontal passage has been less than impressive to say the 
least due to lack of upper support and little to no instability. 
Therefore the forecast has been tailored back with respect to probability of precipitation 
across the eastern two thirds of the forecast area where only isolated 
probability of precipitation are featured through daybreak...further west across the high 
terrain categorical probability of precipitation prevail. Latest mesoscale models indicate 
shower expansion along and south of i85 this morning as the boundary 
slides south into a slightly more moist environment. This added 
moisture and weak surface convergence will yield at least some 
scattered showers around sunrise therefore likely probability of precipitation persist 
through middle morning over these areas before being lowered. Further 
north behind the front over the NC Piedmont...probability of precipitation remain at likely 
levels for the time being before being gradually reduced to chance 
levels by middle morning. 


Meanwhile the primary upper trough axis will be sliding into the 
region toward days end with abundant cold advection pattern riding 
along. Latest guidance favors the trough base sliding atop the Tennessee 
Valley region late in the day today yielding increased northwest flow over 
the high terrain as broad channeled vorticity band moves in. 
Thus...keeping probability of precipitation elevated over the mountains to account for snow 
showers through the overnight hours...where sub advisory level 
snowfall is forecast. The other concern for the overnight period is the 
strength of the cold advection leading to subfreezing temperatures 
across the mountains...and near freezing levels outside of the mountains as 
the frost/freeze program has been activated across southwest 
NC...will be issuing freeze warning to account for threatening 
temperatures tonight. Regarding frost across northeast Georgia and the 
NC/SC Piedmont...expecting winds overnight to increase to levels 
not supportive of frost development therefore no frost products will 
be issued. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Monday/... 
as of 315 am Friday...the main story for the short range will be the 
high amplitude upper trough that settles briefly over the east...which 
will make it feel much more like winter than early Spring. After 
some lingering northwest flow snow shower activity ends after daybreak 
Saturday...the rest of the day should be quiet as a trailing short 
wave is channeled and has little moisture to work with. High 
pressure will build down from the north and will keep high temperatures 
close to what is normal for middle January. The high will settle over 
top of the western Carolinas by Sunday morning and should provide 
for excellent radiational cooling conditions. Expect that the entire 
forecast area will be below freezing by daybreak Sunday. Being that 
Saturday night is the fourth period of the forecast...prefer to wait for 
one more model cycle before issuing a freeze watch...just in case 
the model guidance changes. The upper ridge moves overhead Sunday 
and that should push the surface high off to the east. Temperatures will not 
moderate much...though...and will remain well below normal. The next 
short wave will dive down and across the forecast area Sunday night and 
Monday morning. There appears to be more model consensus with the 
timing of this feature and the associated surface cold front...reaching 
the mountains Sunday night and crossing the region through midday Monday. 
That will allow for eliminating the precipitation chances from the north/northwest 
Monday afternoon. Partial thickness/forecast soundings Show Low 
potential for anything other than rain...so the min temperature forecast for 
Sunday night will be kept above freezing. Have lowered high temperatures on 
Monday based on a consensus of the guidance supported by an earlier 
frontal passage. 


&& 


Long term /Monday night through Thursday/... 
as of 230 am Friday...the upper air pattern through the medium range 
still looks progressive. An upper trough axis off the East Coast 
Monday night will move off to the east. That will allow surface high 
pressure to build in from the west through Tuesday as a deamplifying 
upper ridge approaches. Think Monday night and most of Tuesday will 
be dry as a result. The problem will be a weak southern stream short wave 
undercutting the deamplifying ridge on Tuesday and Tuesday night. 
The operational GFS and European model (ecmwf) keep the short wave well to the west 
through Tuesday evening...which suggests that moisture return from the 
west/SW will be delayed until perhaps Tuesday night. Precipitation was removed 
for Tuesday based on this consensus. The rest of the medium range 
looks unsettled as first the short wave passage brings upper support 
for precipitation development on Wednesday and Wednesday night...then a northern 
stream wave pushes a cold front down from the northwest on Thursday to be 
the focus for additional precipitation development. No changes were made 
to the medium range from Wednesday Onward. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt...VFR/MVFR conditions will prevail through the taf period. 
Initialized taf at MVFR levels with -shra and gusty northerly winds. 
This will carry through midday as the primary upper trough axis slides 
through the region with low level moisture remaining supportive of 
MVFR ceiling restricitons through early/middle afternoon. Low VFR returns 
after the 21z timeframe amidst light northerly flow at the surface. 
High level cirrus will dominate late in the period. 


Elsewhere...Post frontal precipitation continues to slide through the 
region leading to MVFR conditions. Initialized all tafs VFR/MVFR 
through middle/late morning with conditions improving earliest across 
the west...therefore leading to earlier VFR onset at kavl. The 
remaining sites will improve once rain showers exits the region near 
midday. Low VFR will dominate through early evening before low 
clouds scattered leading to only high level cirrus amongst light/moderate 
northerly flow. Lastly...expecting light shsn along the Tennessee line 
associated with cold air advection pattern...thus would not be surprised to see a 
few flurries at kavl near periods end however left any mention out 
of taf for this issuance. 


Outlook...dry high pressure prevails through Sunday...then another 
front moves in with precipitation on Monday. Restrictions look 
most likely in and around the mountain valleys thus affecting 
kavl.
