NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
617 am EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front continues to cross the eastern portion of the state 
this morning. It should push off the coast later this morning. A 
reinforcing cold front will sweep through the area Friday night. 
Much colder air will follow this front. The first widespread frost 
along with the first freeze of the season for some areas may occur 
this weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 
cold front has nearly cleared the SC coast. 88d shows a few 
showers along the grand strand and southeast NC. Satellite loop shows 
clouds continuing to push east/southeast. Behind the front weak 
high pressure will build into the region for today into early 
Friday. Guidance temperatures for this afternoon are in good 
agreement and have stayed close to consensus. Expect skies to 
become mostly sunny with temperatures near normal...in the upper 
60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through Saturday night/... 
weak high pressure will dominate the weather tonight. BUFKIT time 
sections indicate calm/light winds overnight and expect 
temperatures to fall through the night. Guidance and local numbers 
nearly identical and will stay near consensus. This will place 
overnight lows very close to climatology in the low/middle 40s. 500mb 
flow begins to become high amplified late tonight into Saturday. 
This will set up a deep trough off the West Coast...downstream 
ridge along the intermountain west into western Canada...and 
significant troughing east of the Mississippi River valley/along 
the East Coast. Models have come into better agreement with the 
past runs including the 00z run overnight. The models have 
trended much stronger with shortwave energy diving south through 
the Great Lakes and closing off over the Ohio Valley on 
Friday...then continuing southeastward over the Carolinas by 
Saturday morning...before shifting off the coast Saturday 
afternoon. These solutions are very much in line with what the 
European model (ecmwf) was depicting about 5-6 days ago...bringing a very cold air 
mass over the region this weekend into Monday. 


It still appears the best moisture and potential for precipitation 
will remain north and east of the area but model probability of precipitation have 
continued to increase as the runs have come into better agreement 
and settling on a stronger/farther southward system. Have 
increased the probability of precipitation across the area Friday night into Saturday 
evening across the County Warning Area. However as mentioned earlier have kept the 
highest probability of precipitation along the NC/SC border/northern midlands. These probability of precipitation 
are in the high chance/low likely category. Significant cold 
advection will move into the region Friday night behind a cold 
front as surface low development occurs over southern North 
Carolina...and continue into Saturday as the low deepens and moves 
offshore. As the pressure gradient tightens across the area Friday 
night into Saturday...winds will increase across the area. Expect 
breezy conditions with wind gusts between 30 and 35 miles per hour during the 
day on Saturday. May need a lake Wind Advisory during this 
period. Model forecasts of 850mb winds close to 50 knots on 
Saturday with downsloping northwesterly flow could allow some of 
the stronger winds to mix down. Do not think red flag criteria 
will be met but fire weather concerns may need to be addressed as 
well as we approach the weekend. Maximum temperatures on Saturday will 
be nearly 10-15 degrees below normal in the 50s. Saturday night 
temperatures will also be nearly 10 degrees below normal and in 
the middle 30s...although frost is not expected due to persistent 
wind keeping the boundary layer mixed. Have stayed very close to 
consensus for temperatures through the period. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
the extended forecast period will feature a cold start with 
moderating temperatures through the period. 


The deep upper trough off the middle Atlantic coast will continue to 
lift northeastward away from the forecast area while a cold and dry 
Canadian air mass builds into the region from the north on Sunday. 
Temperatures are expected to be well below normal with 850mb 
temperatures on Sunday around +3c to +5c. High temperatures on Sunday 
will remain in the middle/upper 50s. The coldest night of the 
event is expect Sunday night/Monday morning. With near ideal 
radiational cooling conditions under mostly clear skies and light 
to calm winds and a very dry air mass in place. Temperatures 
Sunday night are expected to fall into the lower to middle 30s and a 
widespread frost is possible. Expect some of the colder locations 
of the County Warning Area to record their first freeze of the season. Will likely 
need an advisory for Sunday night. 


The upper ridge axis will push east across the forecast area on 
Monday as the surface high shifts offshore and a light return 
southerly flow develops. Temperatures will be a bit warmer on 
Monday but still remain below normal. On Tuesday into 
Wednesday...upper heights will begin to fall in response to 
shortwave energy moving into the Great Lakes region carving a trough 
across the central part of the country. A cold front will approach 
the area from the west by Wednesday with increasing low level 
moisture so will introduce slight chance probability of precipitation across the forecast 
area. Temperatures Tuesday/Wednesday will gradually return to near normal 
with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. 


&& 


Aviation /10z Thursday through Monday/... 
VFR conditions through the taf period. 


Cold front has moved east of the taf sites. Cloud bases will 
remain above 3000 feet....with skies clearing through 14z. 


Winds will be north 8-10 knot...becoming light this evening as the 
pressure gradient relaxes. 


Extended aviation outlook... 
MVFR conditions possible Friday night into Saturday night as a 
strong cold front and upper level trough crosses the region. Breezy 
to possibly windy conditions expected Saturday. 


&& 


Cae watches/warnings/advisories... 
SC...none. 
Georgia...none.
