NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
1055 am EDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
dry Canadian high pressure will persist across the region 
today...with a weak frontal system moving into the North Carolina 
mountains early Tuesday. Dry and seasonal high pressure will build 
back in behind an upper level trough Wednesday and remain across the 
area through the work week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
our middle morning update was to add fog for a few hours in the rest of 
the western NC river valleys where cirrus clouds exiting and fog was 
able to develop. Most of that fog is burning off...with the last in 
the little Tennessee River valley...and that should be gone soon. 
Otherwise the remainder of the forecast is in good shape...with our 
diurnal temperatures and dewpoints following a decent trend. 


Remainder of previous discussion... 
morning update...with thicker cirrus crossing overhead...temperatures and dew point/S 
are remaining above Fr levels across the NC mountains...but isolate areas 
could see light Fr through daybreak. No sigfnt changes were needed 
to the grids. 


430 am EDT update...passing broken/overcast cirrus field continues across mainly 
the northern zones this morning. Even with calm conds...temperatures have 
remained a couple degrees f above the forecast curve across the fb 
valley and over the NC Piedmont and upstate. Thus...the hour/ly temperature 
grids were adjacent upward a bit over the next few hours. The threat of 
widespread Fr formation across the northern mountains looks minimal per the 
latest mesonet T/dew point data...however patchy development is still 
possible before and through sunrise. 


As of 245 am EDT...surface high pressure will continue to dominate 
the weather pattern this morning and through much of the near term. This 
will maintain fairly weak winds with nominal mixing in weak low level 
flow. Upper level clouds associated with a passing trough axis will 
diminish throughout the day...yet few/scattered cirrus will linger with few/scattered 
fair weather cumulus probable as well. Maximum temperatures will be close to normal and 
right in line with expected low level thickness values. 


With the surface high shifting offshore...the increase in SW/ly 
temperature/moist flux Monday will maintain higher mins overnight as well. 
This will offset most fog and Fr threats...however soundings and 
MOS guidance still indicate a good probability for low visibility across the 
French Broad and little Tennessee valleys before daybreak. An increase in 
stcu will occur across the NC mountain spine and northern mountains overnight as a 
clipper system dives out of the glake region and this should be enough 
to diffuse visibility concerns over these areas. There will be enough mech 
lift and some ulvl dynamical aide to allow for -shra and sprinkles 
which is covered with isolate probability of precipitation mainly across the northern four NC mountain 
counties. Mins Monday night will be warmer than this mornings lows by a 
couple cats or right around normal. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... 
as of 305 am EDT Monday...another in a series of potent short wave 
troughs will dig strongly out of the Great Lakes region...toward the 
southern Appalachians and middle-Atlantic early in the short term 
period. This will introduce another surge of cool air into our area 
late Tuesday into Tuesday night. The series of waves will carve out an upper 
low over the mid-Atlantic/northeast that will result in a somewhat 
protracted period of northwest flow across the Carolinas/north Georgia into 
late week. A period of northwest flow rain showers will be possible... 
mainly Tuesday night as upslope moisture deepens briefly with the 
passage of the upper wave. However...even then tenn border probability of precipitation 
should not exceed 30 percent or so. Moisture will become more 
shallow by early Wednesday...but still expect plenty of lingering cloud 
cover to persist near the tenn border through the end of the period. 
Meanwhile...classic cool/mostly clear autumn weather will persist 
southeast of the Blue Ridge... with near normal temperatures on Tuesday 
giving way to weather that will be 5-10 degrees below climatology by 
Wednesday. Despite this...current indications are that clouds and/or 
wind will preclude much of a frost freeze concern in the mountains... 
except perhaps in the sheltered valleys of the Southwest Mountains (where 
the frost/freeze program has already ended for the season). 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
as of 315 am Monday...the pattern will remain typically inactive 
through the medium range...as a mean long wave trough will generally 
be maintained near the East Coast through the period. Temperatures will 
modify closer to climatology by the weekend...as heights rise downstream 
of dampening short wave ridge. A consensus of the latest global 
model guidance would suggest passage of another strong short wave 
trough over the weekend...which could bring small chances for 
mountain showers and cool US down again by the end of the period. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Monday through Friday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR flight conds throughout the taf period. 
Surface high presure continues to shift slowly east across the Carolinas 
this morning making for calm to light S-southwesterly winds. Shallow mixing 
in weak flow will be had through the afternoon...with surface wind 
directions becoming defined south-southwest/ly to SW/ly into the afternoon. 
Taking a quick look at some point data I did mention some scattered Alto 
cumululs at Charlotte tonight...per new model data. 


Meanwhile a late afternoon/evening shift to west/ly is possible with 
crossing ulvl trough axis...but again winds will remain low end. 
Periods of mfvr/IFR visibility will be possible at kavl and khky around 
daybreak Tuesday. 


Outlook...a round of gusty northwest winds and mountain stratocu will be 
possible behind a mostly dry cold front late Tuesday into early Wednesday. 
Otherwise...VFR conditions should predominate into late week.
