NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee 
907 PM CST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Update... 


Latest radar imagery shows a few light showers and sprinkles 
continue in parts of the middle state this evening. Models indicate 
continued scattered development of showers overnight...but have 
overall backed off on coverage so lowered probability of precipitation a tad and removed 
thunder mention. Surface winds continue to veer in response to 
upper trough ejecting into the plains...and temperatures should bottom 
out over the next couple of hours and then rise the rest of the 
night as warm air advection increases and SW low level jet strengthens to 30 kts. Still 
looking at scattered to numerous showers and some thunderstorms 
on Tuesday and especially Tuesday night as upper trough continues 
to progress eastward and cold front approaches from the north. 


Latest guidance including the 18z GFS...12z European model (ecmwf)...00z NAM...21z 
sref...and HPC continue overall trend for winter storm on 
Wednesday with large amounts of quantitative precipitation forecast behind a powerful cold 
front...although timing differences between the models continue to 
create uncertainty regarding the resultant dominant precipitation types 
and accumulations for our County Warning Area. 00z NAM in particular brings cold 
front much more slowly into the area on Wednesday versus other 
models and keeps temperatures generally steady behind the boundary 
despite strong cold air advection. This seems unreasonable as the potent Arctic 
airmass behind the front and strong cold air advection should force cold front 
more quickly/further through the area with drastically falling 
temperatures behind it a la the GFS/ECMWF. Forecast already leans 
in the direction of the global models and no changes were made. Of 
note...forecast soundings continue to depict a considerable warm 
nose around 750mb for much of the event which would result in more 
freezing rain/ice pellets versus snow. Also of note...cips analogs have no 
comparable snow events to this one for this time of year...which 
shows how unusual this upcoming winter storm setup will be.

Update...for 00z aviation forecast 


Aviation... 
cold front that moved through middle state last night will return 
tonight as a warm front bringing an increase chance for showers as 
we go through the overnight hours. Expect to see scattered showers 
developing in the middle state by 06z then increase in coverage. 
Look for ceilings to lower into the IFR range in the overnight and 
remain through much of the day on Tuesday but they could lift at 
Clarksville and Nashville in the afternoon into the MVFR range. Warm 
front lifts north of middle state 18z-20z Tuesday and surface winds 
pick up in speed with a few gusts.
