NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
205 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry high pressure will continue to be in control of the weather 
through early next week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
as of 200 am...for the 0530 UTC update...no significant changes 
needed. I updated the wind/sky/fog forecast for today and tonight for 
the 06z tafs. Otherwise...no changes. 


1030 EDT PM update...latest infrared imagery shows high clouds spreading 
over the western half of the forecast area in response to an 
approaching upper shortwave trough from the west. This has resulted 
in hourly surface temperatures running a few degrees warmer than the forecast 
temperatures especially over the western upstate SC. Hence...have increased 
Friday morning lows by a few there. Otherwise...current frost advisory 
over the portions of the NC mountains/foothills looks okay given the 
surface observation trend. 


700 PM update...have made minor adjustments to the hourly temperatures and 
dew point per latest surface observation trend. Otherwise...expect cool and dry 
conditions to continue under the cp high pressure through the 
overnight hours. 


As of 230 PM EDT Thursday...ejecting upper trough and associated 
surface cyclone will allow for pressure gradient forces to relax 
across the region this evening. Until then...expecting occasional 
15-20mph gusts across portions of the NC Piedmont with 20-25mph 
gusts possible through the French Broad valley as channeling 
enhances flow. Otherwise...predominate downslope flow across the 
low terrain will continue to yield sunny skies with temperatures 
approaching normal levels. As short wave upper ridging slides 
overhead this evening...expecting clear skies to allow for abundant 
radiational cooling resulting in below normal lows. As a 
consequence of this combined with relaxing pgf/winds...frost 
conditions are still favorable for the central/northern mountains of 
western NC. It is possible that a few locations across the NC 
Piedmont could experience patchy frost...however expecting this to 
be rather sparse in coverage. Thus...no changes planned to the 
frost advisory that is currently in effect. 


Guidance indicates a weak upper short wave disrupting the pattern 
Friday with a few high clouds being the only weather of consequence. 
Otherwise...surface high pressure will dominate the pattern leading 
to mostly sunny skies and near normal temperatures by the afternoon 
hours. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
as of 145 PM Thursday...northwest flow develops across the area Sat as an upper 
trough slowly moves east of the area. The flow begins to flatten out 
on sun as low amplitude ridging begins to move toward the area from 
the west. High pressure ridges into the area Sat then weakens Sat 
night as a weak cold front drops across the area. A weak short wave 
moves across the area in the northwest flow during this time as well. There 
will be quite a bit of low level moisture associated with this 
system...but the main forcing will be from northwesterly upslope flow. 
Guidance blend now favors a slight chance of rain showers across the Tennessee border 
counties Sat night...so have added this to the forecast. There certainly 
will be quite a bit of clouds across that area during this time... 
along with gusty northwest winds. Generally mostly clear skies and lighter 
winds will prevail across the rest of the area. High pressure 
returns Sunday with clouds and winds diminishing. Near to slightly 
above normal temperatures Sat rise above normal sun. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
as of 250 PM Thursday...guidance remains in decent agreement through the 
medium range. An upper ridge moves over the area Monday then the ridge 
axis moves off shore Tuesday. At the surface...high pressure slowly slides 
across the area Monday and off shore Tuesday...but remains weakly ridged 
across the area. This leads to clear skies Monday and slowly increasing 
clouds Tuesday. Highs remain nearly steady above normal while lows start 
out a little above normal and rise even higher Monday night. An upper 
trough crosses the area Wednesday...with the European model (ecmwf) showing a stronger and 
deeper trough than the GFS. A couple of weak short waves move over the 
area Thursday in the lingering weak long wave trough or southwesterly flow. A cold 
front moves into the area Wednesday...with the European model (ecmwf) showing a stronger 
and more moist system. The European model (ecmwf) then pushes the front south of the 
area Thursday with dry high pressure moving in from the north while the 
GFS stalls the front over the area with moisture returning north 
along the front. Have gone with a blend and have pop increasing to 
chance west and slight chance east Wednesday/Wednesday night then dropping back to 
slight chance Thursday. Temperatures remain above normal but show a slow cooling 
trend from Wednesday to Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Friday through Tuesday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions should prevail at all 
terminal sites. There is a small chance of some brief fog at 
kavl/kand/khky...but with dewpt depressions still running several 
degree at all taf sites...and a quite a bit of thick cirrus streaming 
overhead...confidence is low. Dry high pressure will continue to 
influence our weather through tonight...with some passing middle to 
high level clouds. Winds should remain calm to light northerly through this 
morning...then veering to the west-southwest/SW by early afternoon. 


Outlook...quiet weather will continue across the region...as deep 
layer ridging settles in through this weekend. 


&& 


Gsp watches/warnings/advisories... 
Georgia...none. 
NC...frost advisory until 9 am EDT this morning for ncz033-049-050- 
053-063>065-501-503-505-507-509. 
SC...none.
