NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
647 PM EST Wednesday Dec 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
weak high pressure will linger through tonight. Then a weak weather 
system aloft will spread clouds and perhaps some spotty light 
showers in the mountains on Thursday. Another low will develop to 
our southwest on Friday and increase chances for widespread 
precipitation going into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
630 PM update...no significant changes overnight. Still will 
expect cirrus to increase and be joined by midlevel clouds as 
the night GOES on. Temperature trends look good in light of observation over the 
past couple hours...and latest guidance continues to back up mins near 
climatology. 18z NAM/GFS were not any more supportive of quantitative precipitation forecast in the early 
part of the day Thursday...so I backed off the already low-end probability of precipitation in 
the southern mountains however I did keep a schc for the afternoon further north 
where the incoming short wave trough will have more of an impact. At this 
time of day even at the higher elevations temperatures should support 
nearly all rain...with no snow accums expected. 


As of 200 PM EST Wednesday...dry 1026mb surface high centered over 
Kentucky/Tennessee will continue to ridge into the forecast area...resulting in 
predominant northwest flow and dry conditions this evening into tonight. 
Mostly clear skies this evening will give way to increasing high 
clouds by late tonight as a weak upper shortwave approaches from the 
middle-Mississippi Valley. With the combination of downslope effect 
and weak cold air advection flow...overnight lows will stay around 2-3 degrees 
above normal over the Piedmont. Areas over the mountains/valleys will see 
seasonably cold overnight temperatures. 


Thursday...moisture associated with the upper shortwave will 
approach from the west...reaching the southern Appalachians by 
mid-day. Latest short range models have backed off on the precipitation 
over the Tennessee borderline as the best upper forcing passes north of the 
area and moist layer remains elevated. Nevertheless...with the help 
of northwest upslope flow...can not rule out periods of light precipitation 
during the early afternoon hours. Hence...have inherited slight 
chance probability of precipitation for rain and snow showers mainly over the Tennessee borderline. 
Conditions should dry out as the upper wave pushes farther NE. 
Elsewhere will see continued dry conditions with partly to mostly 
cloudy skies. Afternoon highs will run near normal for most 
locations. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
as of 245 PM Wednesday...the weak upper wave will quickly drift east 
of the central Appalachians Thursday night...while low level flow remains 
W/nwly. Other than lingering clouds...expect quiet weather conditions 
with temperatures dipping into the 20s to middle 30s in the mountains...and middle-upper 
30s in the Piedmont. 


Friday...a potent southern stream shortwave trough will enter the lower MS 
valley...while surface high pressure (~1030mb) will slide into the Great Lakes. 
Model moisture profiles indicate variable cloudiness across the 
County warning forecast area...with west/northwesterly upslope low clouds likely to persist along the Tennessee 
border. Temperatures will be near normal east of the mountains...but below 
normal in the high terrain thanks to more clouds and persistent northwesterly 
cold air advection flow. 


Friday night and Saturday...models are in reasonable agreement on 
the timing and forcing associated with the southern stream middle-upper 
wave...maximizing q-vector convergence around 12z Sat. 
Meanwhile...cold air damming will set up...as 1028-1030mb surface high 
crosses Quebec...and moist upglide breaks out across the region. 
Precipitation ramps up from SW to NE late Friday night to midday Saturday to 
categorical. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts should be generally 0.5" or less. Although...the 
NAM is a wet outlier...with widespread areas receiving more than 
0.5". The biggest concern with this system will be the p-type...as 
models continue to agree on enough cool low level air/thicknesses across the 
NC mountains to support a wintry mix. As usual...the NAM and GFS forecast 
soundings still disagree on the extent/magnitude of a warm nose...and 
the depth of a warm surface layer. Given the hybrid cad with good 
upslope and low level cold air advection...I leaned toward the NAM (going 2/1 NAM/gfs). 
This results in mostly a sleet/snow mix...with occasional patchy ice 
during the onset early Sat morning. Given the expected quantitative precipitation forecast...I think 
it is reasonable for there to be 2-4 inches of a sleet/snow mix across 
the northern mountains and adjacent Escarpment...possibly to the Black Mountains 
further south...it/S more uncertain. So with all that said...it 
still looks like an advisory level event. However...if the cold air 
is deep enough (per nam)...enough sleet may accumulate to make this a low-end 
warning event for portions of the northern NC Escarpment. I used the 
consensus of raw model temperatures for these periods...which is the 
coldest guidance available...due to The Wedge. Temperatures will hover in 
the 30s to lower 40s for most of the area. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
as of 300 PM Wednesday...another deep southern stream shortwave trough will 
dig across northern Mexico and Southern Plains Saturday night through Sunday...then 
is expected to phase with the northern stream Sunday night through 
Wednesday...developing into a deep closed upper low. The 12z GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) have come into a little better agreement with this 
pattern...but still differ on the exact position/depth of the closed 
low...and the timing of associated surface waves to affect our County warning forecast area. 
Going with a superblend of cons/wpc/official...there is a lingering 
slight chance to low-end chance pop through much of the period from Sat night 
through Tuesday...with near normal temperatures. If there are sub-freezing temperatures 
in the mountains any of those nights...there may be some patchy freezing 
ra/dz...given the lack of ice nuclei activation. However...I am not 
that confident on that. It does look to be fairly cloudy 
however...as cold air damming continues Sunday/Monday...with a weak 
coastal low to our southeast. Tuesday may be a more pleasant day...with 
some sunshine (if models continue to slow down the next system). 


Tuesday and Wednesday...the GFS is still about 12 hours faster than 
the European model (ecmwf) on a strong cold frontal passage...with the European model (ecmwf) still 
showing a 12z Wednesday frontal passage. The European model (ecmwf)...with its stronger/deeper 
middle-upper low...has very strong flow with the front...with 850 mb flow 
of 50-60+ kts on both the warm air advection and cold air advection side of the system. So there 
may be a threat for heavy rain...severe weather and/or wintry precipitation 
around Dec 23-24. Still Need More time to Iron out the details...but 
already have likely probability of precipitation Tuesday night (which is day 7). Temperatures look 
to be near or above normal ahead of the front...and too warm for 
wintry precipitation...but then wrap around moisture with plummeting 
thicknesses should result in snow in the mountains by Wednesday night. 


&& 


Aviation /00z Thursday through Monday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR with cirrus thickening overnight...and 
arrival of a midlevel deck after daybreak. Surface conditions and low level 
profiles are too dry for fog to be a concern at any of the 
terminals. Though some sites may continue to be southwesterly this 
evening...any remaining winds will favor north for the bulk of the 
overnight. Kavl may remain mixed and breezy overnight. High pressure 
will remain north of the area Thursday...but with brisk westerly flow aloft 
another Lee trough is expected to form. This will likely cause some 
variability at the Piedmont sites as mixing gets underway...with 
winds then prevailing southwesterly for the afternoon. 


Outlook...a more organized system will approach from the west for 
the start of the weekend once again increasing precipitation/restriction 
chances. Some wintry precipitation is possible across the NC mountains and 
foothills affecting kavl/khky Saturday morning. Wintry precipitation is not 
expected at this time for any other taf sites.
