NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
237 PM EST Tuesday Nov 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will develop along a stalled cold front off the 
Atlantic Seaboard tonight and move up the coast Wednesday. An upper 
level system will cross western North Carolina early Thursday. Dry 
high pressure will return Friday and linger into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Wednesday/... 
as of 225 PM EST...a few winter weather warning/advisory adjustments 
are being made. The Winter Storm Warning is being expanded slightly 
to encompass Avery/Mitchell/Yancey. The advisory tier has also been 
expanded to the eastern slopes of the northern Blue Ridge and also a bit 
farther into the central and southern NC mountains 


Water vapor imagery shows a positively tilted 500 mb trough emerging 
from the plains. This feature will become more neutrally tilted over 
the lower MS valley tonight and then acquire a negative tilt as it 
crosses the Appalachians Wednesday and phases back into the broader trough 
to the west of the Appalachians. At the surface...a low center 
developing along the Florida East Coast late today will move rapidly up the 
coastline of the Carolinas tonight. Deep layer forcing from 
frontogenesis will likely set up into far interior parts of the 
Carolinas...possibly over the foothills. In addition...the best 
upper divergence in the right entrance region of the 250 mb jet 
streak will cross the forecast area from the west 09z to 15z...while 
deep layer q vector convergence maximizes with the trough over western 
NC Wednesday morning. These features should come together to produce some 
solid 0.5 to 0.75 inch liquid equivalent precipitation totals tonight 
through Wednesday morning. Most models have slightly more quantitative precipitation forecast...but 
coastal convection could be a limiting factor in capping totals. 


Regarding ptypes...model profiles all have some degree of a surface warm 
layer across the Piedmont...foothills...and Lower Mountain valleys. 
However...the most troubling model trend is fairly strong 700 mb 
frontogenesis that appears to set up over the foothills. Although 
non mountain profiles look just warm enough for rain throughout...any 
higher rates could overcome the surface based warm layer and produce 
snow showers at times over the NC foothills and the far northwest 
Piedmont...as well as the Lower Mountain valleys. The higher terrain 
should be solidly snow for most of the event. The eventual track of 
the deepening 850 mb low center will be critical. Since the models 
have trended just west of Interstate 95...the associated forcing for 
rain/snow showers will be pushed west into the foothills...with 
corresponding slightly higher quantitative precipitation forecast/snow totals along and just east of 
the Blue Ridge. For this reason...an eastern Escarpment expansion of the 
Winter Weather Advisory has been added. The northern mountain forecast teeters 
on warning criteria...but since Avery is already in see no reason to 
not add Yancey/Mitchell for some 4 plus inch accumulations over at 
least the eastern half of these counties. Additional low end advisory 
numbers are expected a bit farther SW in the mountain...mainly at higher 
elevations...but the brief duration of the event and the marginally 
cold temperatures should preclude any warning amount/significant travel 
problems there. 


A lull in activity is expected between upper waves Wednesday afternoon along 
with brief deeper layer drying. However...low level northwest flow moisture 
may continue to wring out scattered northern/Western Mountain snow showers well 
into the afternoon. Will trim min and maximum temperatures below 
guidance...especially in northern sections...tonight/Wed. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday night through Friday/... 
at 230 PM EST Tuesday...on Wednesday evening an upper trough axis 
will extend from Hudson Bay to the eastern Gulf of Mexico. A string 
channeled vorticity lobe rounding the base of the trough will be 
approaching the southern Appalachians. The vorticity lobe crosses our 
area early Thursday...while the deamplifying trough progresses to 
the eastern Seaboard. By Friday the upper trough moves off the East 
Coast...and flow aloft becomes more zonal. 


At the surface...a weakening low will move from the lower Ohio River 
valley...across the southern Appalachians on Wednesday night. 
Moisture ahead of this system will move NE across our area... 
generally to the northwest of Interstate 85. Thickness values are rather 
low at this time...supporting mainly wintry precipitation to start 
with in the mountains. Previous model runs lacked a warm nose 
aloft...but more recent runs have a brief warm nose ahead of this 
low. This could result in some brief freezing rain in some portions 
of the southwest NC mountains Wednesday evening...but overall... 
precipitation should be in the form of snow in the NC 
mountains...with rain to the east. Model soundings do lower the 
freezing level late Wednesday night and early Thursday along 
Interstate 40...to the point where snow may mix in with rain...but 
surface temperatures around six degrees below normal are only 
marginally supportive of snowfall accumulations. At this 
Point...Mountain snowfall accumulations appear to fall short of 
advisory criteria. 


Behind the surface low...some lingering northwest flow snow showers will 
persist at higher elevations into Thursday...while lower elevations 
of the mountains change over to rain. The event is expected to wind 
down quickly Thursday evening. Gusty NE winds will deliver enough 
cold advection to overcome downslope warming and bring temperatures 
to around 10 degrees below normal on Thursday and Thursday night. 
Gusty winds abate on Friday as a surface high moves over the 
area....while high temperatures remain about 10 degrees below normal. 


&& 


Long term /Friday night through Tuesday/... 
as of 215 PM Tuesday...quasi-zonal 500 mb flow across the Continental U.S. To 
start out the medium range 00z Sat...then a gradual 
amplification...with one trough sweeping across the Great Lakes...and 
another entering the West Coast over the weekend. Upper ridging will 
persist across the southeast states...albeit fairly flat. At the 
surface...a moderating high pressure will settle across the Carolinas...Georgia and 
Florida. With persistent westerly 850 mb and increasing 
thicknesses...expect temperatures to rebound from a couple categories below 
normal Saturday...to 2-3 categories above normal by Monday. The 
European model (ecmwf) and GFS continue to disagree on how bullish a backdoor cold 
front is in pushing south through the area Monday night through Tuesday. 
The 12z/25 European model (ecmwf) is stronger with a surface high as it slides into the 
northeast states...and keeps more moisture atop a wedge during the 
day on Tuesday. The GFS keeps the front and moisture mainly north of 
the area through Tuesday night. I went with the 12z hpcguide...which 
was based on ecwmf ens...which is not as bullish as the op 
ecwmf...but does increase cloudiness and bring slightly cooler temperatures 
on Tuesday. Otherwise...expect generally clear to partly cloudy 
skies and dry conditions. Some slight to low-end chance probability of precipitation will exist 
along the Tennessee border...as moisture is lifted with persistent westerly 
upslope flow...Sunday through Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
at kclt...the low level drying behind the front has abruptly ended 
and a few patches of lower VFR/high end MVFR clouds are floating 
around in the Piedmont. This should provide tempo ceilings at best 
through late day...with mainly middle level VFR ceilings becoming lower VFR 
stratocumulus by evening. Moisture will then return in earnest this 
evening as low pressure deepens along the SC coast. All model and 
ensemble profiles for the overnight hours indicate enough of a surface 
based warm layer to keep the heaviest precipitation liquid overnight 
into Wednesday morning. The only concern is that frontogenesis could 
create some banded precipitation toward daybreak that might push snow 
levels briefly down into the foothills...but this is not expected to 
reach kclt. NE winds will turn slowly north then northwest through the period. 
A few low end gusts are possible toward daybreak. Solid IFR ceilings 
through the early morning hours could improve a bit toward the end 
of the period...but will not include that with this issuance. 


Elsewhere...solid middle level ceilings will steadily lower through the 
afternoon hours...with lower VFR stratocumulus arriving from the S 
by early evening. The light rain should follow quickly behind that 
as moisture and frontogenesis deepen from the coastal low. Expect 
snow levels to fall across the higher terrain...with kavl seeing 
mainly snow by 09z. The frontogenesis may be strong enough across 
the foothills to push snow levels down toward khky by 09z. The SC 
taf sites should have a deep enough surface warm layer to remain all 
liquid. Expect MVFR ceilings later this evening to transition down 
quickly to IFR overnight. Some LIFR is possible at times...but will 
stay with the consensus of MOS and keep conditions lower end IFR all 
but khky. Gradual improvement to MVFR is likely late in the period 
from the SW as the precipitation pulls away. Expect nearly surface winds 
to become more northwest with time. 


Outlook...another round of scattered rain showers south and 
rain/snow showers north will impact the area Wednesday night into Thursday 
morning. A dry air mass will then return to the area Thursday night 
through the weekend.
