NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1042 PM EDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
drier high pressure will linger over the region through Thursday. A 
strong cold front will then approach the Carolinas from the 
northwest on Friday and move offshore by early Saturday. In the 
fronts wake...a cool and dry airmass will move back over the 
region and remain in place over the weekend. Another cold front will 
approach the southern appalachian region from the northwest early 
next week. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
as of 1030 PM EDT...the evening gso radiosonde observation shows a strong temperature 
inversion around 700 mb...and weak upglide under this level has 
produced some high based stratocumulus around the region. This area 
of moisture and weak lift will gradually move eastward overnight. The 
operational NAM and latest sref mean produce some spotty light quantitative precipitation forecast 
overnight across the region...but this is not supported by the dry 
sub cloud layer and the official forecast will remain dry. Once the 
clouds thin from the west...patchy dense Mountain Valley fog and 
light foothill fog will be possible overnight through daybreak. 


Otherwise...an upper ridge will build over the southeast U.S. 
Through Thursday. At the surface...high pressure will continue to ridge 
south into the region. The middle level inversion will be maintained 
through the period. Quiet/dry weather is thus expected to continue 
through Thursday...with maximum temperatures remaining above climatology. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 215 PM Wednesday...models still in good agreement on timing a 
cold front through the County warning forecast area on Friday. It looks like there will be only 
a brief period of moist southwesterly 850 mb flow ahead of the front Thursday 
night through Friday midday. So I have probability of precipitation slowly ramping up in the 
western zones (esp the SW-upslope areas)...while the rest of the 
area should be relatively dry overnight. Low temperatures Thursday night will 
remain elevated above normal within the return flow and cloud cover. 


During the day on Friday...a pre-frontal band of showers and perhaps a 
few thunderstorms should cross the County warning forecast area from west to east. As usual with these 
type of events...the line may slow down as it crosses the mountains 
guidance has trended a tad slower with the timing as well. I will 
continue the high-end likely east to categorical west for 
Friday...with likely pop lingering in the eastern zones Friday 
evening. Quantitative precipitation forecast will be modest due to the fast-moving nature of the 
convection...generally 0.5 to 1.0". As for severe 
potential...guidance hasn/T trended any more unstable with the 
line...with really only 500-1000 j/kg of SBCAPE...highest along I-85 
corridor. Confidence on anything more than an isolated wind event here 
and there is still low...so will continue to leave mention out of 
the severe weather potential statement. Temperatures will remain at or below normal on Friday...assuming 
clouds/precipitation move in during the day. 


Decent 850 mb cold air advection is expected behind the front overnight Friday 
night through Saturday. This should cut off shower activity...save for a 
lingering slight chance northwesterly upslope shower threat. Clouds should clear out 
for the most part...but temperatures will be about 8-10 degree below 
normal...with a light northwesterly breeze. It will definitely feel like fall. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 155 PM Wednesday afternoon...the medium range forecast picks up at 
00z on Sunday with a negatively tilted...steep upper trough to our 
north and broad upper ridging building over the West Coast. Over the 
next day or so...the trough axis lifts NE of the region. For the next 
few days...the models continue to indicate that we will remain under 
broad upper troffing with some deamplification expected by new day 7 
on Wednesday. The European model (ecmwf) continues to reamplify the trough more than the GFS 
on Monday and Tuesday...yet it does increase heights by the very end of 
the medium range much like the GFS. The GFS continues to develop a 
large closed 500 mb low over Ontario early in the period and maintains a 
longer wavelength trough through Tuesday. 


At the surface...cool and dry high pressure will be in place over the 
region on sun and then shift eastward on Monday and Tuesday. This puts the 
forecast area back under light southerly flow for the rest of the medium 
range. The models continue to develop some sort of large surface low 
north of the Great Lakes early next week and move a couple of weak 
fronts over our area. The models are now suggesting that more 
moisture could be associated with the fropa(s) and more quantitative precipitation forecast is 
possible...however I dont think the current guidance warrants any 
probability of precipitation more than slight chance with some isolated solid chance probability of precipitation 
over the higher terrain for Tuesday afternoon/evening. 
Otherwise...temperatures will start out well below normal for early Oct and 
steadily warm through the period with highs approaching 80 over the 
lower elevations by day 7. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt...VFR stratocumulus ceilings are expected for much of the 
overnight hours as very weak upglide develops under a middle level 
inversion in the vertical profiles. All MOS sources are indicating 
MVFR fog or worse toward daybreak...but the VFR ceilings should largely 
preclude that. A 6sm br mention has been added. Otherwise...expect 
VFR clouds to thin Thursday morning...with continued very light srly flow 
through the period. 


Elsewhere...broken VFR ceilings due to weak moist upglide below a middle level 
inversion will migrate eastward overnight to allow for some scattering 
from the west. This may permit IFR to LIFR fog to form in the mountain 
valleys during the early morning hours. Some occasional MVFR fog 
could also develop at the foothill sites. The restrictions will 
lift/scatter quickly Thursday morning...with continued light southerly 
flow and mainly scattered stratocumulus/cumulus at 5 to 6 kft 
through the day. 


Outlook...a cold front will move across the area on Friday which will 
trigger showers and thunderstorms...with associated restrictions 
possible. Behind the front Friday night...clearing will occur with an 
extended period of VFR weather anticipated through early next week.
