NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 
328 am EST sun Jan 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will build back into the region today...before another 
low pressure area and trailing upper level disturbance move through 
Monday and Tuesday. High pressure returns during the latter half of 
the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
a rather pleasant day is in store for the region...as a S/SW flow 
will become established in the low levels. Thickness values beneath 
a temporarily flattening long wave trough will support maxes around 
5 degrees above climatology this afternoon under sunny/mostly sunny skies. 


The weather situation will then change rather abruptly this 
evening...as potent upper speed maximum...currently seen in water vapor 
imagery digging south across the Central High plains...dives into 
the southeast Continental U.S.. this will bring a rather healthy area of middle- 
level forcing into the area...with some degree of low level 
convergence and isentropic lift into the tenn valley and southern 
Appalachians in association with attendant cold front this evening. 
This supports likely to categorical probability of precipitation across the mountains during this 
time. Miller-b scenario of weakening Ohio Valley surface low...and 
developing coastal low pressure will then disrupt low level forcing 
patterns such that probability of precipitation will decrease dramatically toward the 
Piedmont. However...some light NC Piedmont precipitation may develop in 
association with coastal cyclogenesis...although probability of precipitation will be Middle- 
Range chance at best. 


With a rather respectable /cross-hair/ signature depicted in model 
cross-sections...thermal profiles will be supportive of snow across 
the mountains. However...it appears this will primarily be for 
elevations above 3000 feet or so...with the lower elevations maybe 
seeing a brief changeover as developing cold advection brings the 
snow levels down to the valley floors. Having said that...this 
appears to be quite a low quantitative precipitation forecast event for the area. In fact...the only 
areas in which advisory level snow is being forecast through 12z 
Monday is across the high elevations of the smokies...with most 
other areas expected to see little more than an inch. After 
collaborating with neighboring weather forecast offices...this is a small enough area... 
and timing is such that we can wait another forecast cycle before 
pulling the trigger on any advisories. Continuing the severe weather potential statement mention 
should suffice for now. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Tuesday night/... 
at 230 am EST Sunday...on Monday morning an upper trough will be 
over eastern North America...with a ridge over the west. A strong 
shortwave will be crossing Georgia and the Carolinas on Monday. This 
shortwave moves off the coast by Monday evening. Channeled vorticity 
behind from the northwest behind the departing shortwave persists into the 
southern Appalachians through Tuesday night. 


At the surface...a cold front will be moving off the Carolina coast 
on Monday morning...while a surface low will be over the central 
Appalachians. Moisture associated with the weakening appalachian low 
will slowly move east across our area during the day. By late in the 
day...northwest surface flow sets up over our area behind the departing 
cold front and an associated deepening coastal low. This will aid in 
drying our the Lee of the mountains on Monday night. Meanwhile...a northwest 
flow snow event will setup in the NC mountains bordering Tennessee that 
will persist into Tuesday night. Temperatures will run near normal 
on Monday and Monday night...cooling slightly for Tuesday and 
Tuesday night. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Saturday/... 
at 230 am EST Sunday...on Wednesday morning and upper trough will be 
off the East Coast....while a ridge will be over the plains. As the 
trough deamplifies and progresses further on Thursday...a low 
amplitude ridge reaches the East Coast...and a low amplitude trough 
reaches the MS River Valley. This trough amplifies and progresses to 
the eastern USA by Friday...though the models differ slightly on 
placement of its axis. The models show a broadening trough by 
Saturday as upper level energy moves from Canada to the northern US 
plains...and have a nearly zonal flow in the base of the trough over 
the Gulf states. 


At the surface...Wednesday features high pressure moving from the Ohio 
and Tennessee River valleys across the central and southern Appalachians. 
By Thursday this high stretches along the East Coast....while a cold 
front crosses the MS River Valley. The front moves quickly through 
our area late Thursday...and off the East Coast by Friday morning... 
followed by another round of northwest upslope flow snow over the NC 
mountains. Another surface high moves over the mountains by early 
Saturday...ending the mountain snow event. Temperatures will warm 
from near normal on Wednesday...to slightly above normal on 
Thursday...then will cool to slightly below normal by Saturday. 


&& 


Aviation /09z Sunday through Thursday/... 
at kclt and elsewhere...VFR conditions through the period... 
although some valley fog may occur in the mountains west of kavl later 
this morning. Light west-southwest winds are expected to persist though the 
overnight (nw at kavl)...becoming south at 5-10 kts during the 
afternoon...ahead of the next cold front/upper air disturbance. VFR 
ceilings between 050-100 are expected to overspread the area quickly 
during the evening in advance of this system. Precipitation chances will 
also increase by the end of the period...mainly across the mountains... 
but will withhold this mention until confidence in timing increases. 


Outlook...a series of clipper systems will bring periodic chances 
for snow showers...mainly to the mountains through the week. Most of 
these snow showers will remain west and north of kavl...but brief 
periods of restrictions and snow showers cannot be ruled out there. 
Otherwise...mainly VFR conditions are expected.
