QUANTITATIVE PRECIPITATION FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
138 AM EST SUN DEC 21 2014


PRELIM DAY 1...DAY 2 AND DAY 3 QPF DISCUSSION
VALID DEC 21/1200 UTC THRU DEC 24/1200 UTC
REFERENCE AWIPS GRAPHICS UNDER...PRECIP ACCUM - 24HR

DAY 1...


...PACIFIC NORTHWEST INTO THE CNTL/NORTHERN ROCKIES...

THE SCREAMING E/W PAC UPR JET (175 kTS OR SO) AND STG ONSHORE FLOW
PATRN WILL PROVIDE ONE MORE DAY OF HEAVY TO EXCESSIVE RAINS ACRS
PARTS OF THE PAC COAST REGION...WITH SIGNIFICANT RAINS AND HIER
ELEVS SNOWS SPREADING EWD ACRS THE NRN INTERMOUNTAIN REGION AND
SEWD INTO THE CNTL ROCKIES.  BY LATE IN THE DAY 1 PD..BUILDING
HEIGHTS OFF THE WEST COAST WILL HELP WEAKEN THE INTENSE ONSHORE
FLOW PATRN AND SLOWLY SHIFT WEAKENING E/W FRONTAL BNDRY NWD
THROUGH OREGON.  WHILE BROAD ONSHORE FLOW PATRN IS EXPECTED TO
IMPACT MOST OF THE PAC NW REGION...BY FAR THE HEAVIEST RAINS ARE
EXPECTED ACRS THE CNTL/SRN OREGON COASTAL RANGES INTO THE OREGON
CASCADES WHERE MAIN AXIS OF GREATER THAN 1.25 INCH PWS ALONG WITH
40 KT PLUS WLY 85H FLOW IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST FOR AT LEAST THE
FIRST 12 HRS OF THE DAY 1 PD.  MANUAL QPF CONTINUES TO LEAN TOWARD
COMBO OF SSEO MEAN AND GENL HI RES GUIDANCE GIVEN BETTER
TOPOGRAPHIC RESOLUTION..WITH MANUAL QPF AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 4+ INCHES
EXPECTED OVER THE OREGON CASCADES.  1 TO 2 INCH LIQUID EQUIVS ARE
LIKELY FARTHER E ACRS THE BLUE MTNS..SAWTOOTH RANGE...NRN
WASATCH...TETONS...AND NRN CO MTNS WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS IN
THE MORE FAVORED WRN FACING UPSLOPE AREAS.  THESE ADDITIONAL RAINS
WILL LEAD TO SOME LOCAL STORM TOTAL AMOUNTS CLOSE TO 10 INCHES
OVER WRN OREGON...AND LIKELY EXACERBATE ANY ONGOING FLOODING
PROBLEMS. REFER TO THE LATEST SUITE OF WINTER WEATHER PRODUCTS FOR
DETAILS ON THE WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL OVER THE INTERIOR NW AND
CNTL ROCKIES.

...CNTL U.S...

STG JET PUNCHING INTO THE PAC NW WILL GRADUALLY LEAD TO DVLPMENT
OF LEE SFC LOW OVER THE NRN HI PLAINS ON SUN/SUN NIGHT WITH JET
EXPECTED TO DIG SHARPLY SEWD THRU THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST.  AN AREA
OF HEIGHT FALLS/PVA IS EXPECTED TO SUPPORT AN AREA OF MIXED WINTRY
PCPN FROM ERN MT INTO THE DAKOTAS SUN/SUN NIGHT AS LOW PRES AND
ASSOCD PAC FRONT PUSH EWD ACRS THE REGION.  THE NAM WAS THE MOST
GENEROUS WITH PCPN ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE LOW THROUGH ERN MT BUT
THOUGHT PERHAPS IT MAY BE A LITTLE TO DVLPD WITH MID LEVEL LOW
DVLPMENT AND ASSOCD VORT COMPARED TO MODEL CONSENSUS..SO LEANED
AWAY FROM 00Z NAM AMOUNTS OVER ERN MT.   EAST OF THE
LOW...STRENGTHENING SELY LOW LEVEL FLOW/WAA PATRN IS EXPECTED TO
LEAD TO AN AREA OF MAINLY LIGHT WAA PCPN ACRS THE UPR MS VALLEY.
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 12Z UKMET...THERE IS GENL SUPPORT FOR AN
AXIS OF .10 TO .25 INCH AMOUNTS ACRS PARTS OF NRN WI INTO THE U.P.
OF MI BASED ON 00Z NAM/GFS AND CANADIAN GEM WHICH WERE FOLLOWED
CLOSELY.

...SOUTHEAST U.S....

SLOWLY BACKING FLOW AHEAD OF SHARPENING UPSTREAM LONGWAVE TROF
WILL HELP DRAW DEEPENING TROP MSTR NEWD FROM THE SRN GULF/WRN
CARIBBEAN REGION TOWARD THE ERN GULF OF MEX ALONG QSTRNY FRONTAL
BNDRY..WITH PWS INCREASING TO OVER 1.75 INCHES ACRS CNTL/NRN FL
REGION BY MON MRNG.  THE COMBINATION OF INCREASED MSTR FLUX INTO
THE FRONT..AND STRENGTHENING RT ENTRANCE REGION JET SUPPORT WILL
LEAD TO AN INCREASING THREAT OF RAINS/TSTMS ACRS NRN FL AND
LIGHTER RAINS NWD AS FAR NORTH AS SRN VA.  MANUAL QPF GENLY
FAVORED AN ENSEMBLE APCH GIVEN SMALL DETAIL DIFFERENCES REGARDING
TIMING OF WEAK UPR DISTURBANCES LIFTING NEWD ACRS THE NRN GULF AND
CONVECTIVE POTNL OVER NRN FL.  GENL 1+ INCH AMOUNTS ARE PSBL WITH
LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS WHERE STGR CONVECTIVE STORMS DVLPG AND
PSBLY TRAIN.


PACIFIC NORTHWEST...

THE SLOWER CLUSTER OF GUIDANCE THAT INCLUDES THE 00Z
NAM/GFS/PARALLEL GFS IS PREFERRED OVER THE FASTER 12Z ECMWF FOR
THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH REACHING THE COAST TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY.
HOWEVER...THE UPPER HIGH SOUTHWEST OF CALIFORNIA SHOULD KEEP THE
STRONGEST MOISTURE FLUX AND DEEPEST ASCENT ACROSS CANADA...WITH
THE SYSTEM JUST CLIPPING THE REGION...INCLUDING THE NORTHERN
COASTAL RANGES AND CASCADES OF WASHINGTON.  BASIN-AVERAGE TOTALS
BETWEEN 0.5 AND 1 INCH LIQUID EQUIVALENT ARE EXPECTED FOR THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS.

NORTHERN PLAINS/UPPER MIDWEST/GREAT LAKES/OH VALLEY...

THE SOLUTION SPREAD REGARDING THE TRAJECTORY AND STRENGTH OF THE
LOW AND THUS THE ACCOMPANYING PRECIPITATION SHIELD REMAINS QUITE
HIGH...WITH EMPHASIS PLACED UPON THOSE SOLUTIONS WHICH LIE CLOSEST
TO THE ENSEMBLE MEANS WHICH HAVE SHOWN THE STRONGEST RUN-TO-RUN
CONTINUITY.  THESE SOLUTIONS INCLUDE THE 00Z NAM/00Z PARALLEL
GFS/00Z UKMET.  THE 00Z GFS AND 12Z ECMWF WERE USED SOME BUT
MINIMALLY DUE TO GREATER CONCERNS WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE SOLUTIONS.
 A BROAD REGION OF MIXED STRATIFORM/CONVECTION SHOULD DEVELOP IN
ADVANCE OF THE ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT...RESULTING IN LIQUID
EQUIVALENT AMOUNTS OF 0.5 TO 1 INCH FROM MICHIGAN SOUTHWARD INTO
ILLINOIS...WHILE MAINLY SNOW SHOULD DEVELOP ON THE BACK SIDE OF
THE LOW.  REFER TO THE QPFHSD FOR MORE INFORMATION ON WINTER
WEATHER.

SOUTHEAST/EAST COAST...

A MODEL CONSENSUS FOR THE LOW TRACK AND PRECIPITATION SHIELD
ASSOCIATED WITH THE LOW THAT NEARS THE NEW JERSEY COAST EARLY
TUESDAY IS PREFERRED...WITH THE 00Z NAM/00Z PARALLEL GFS/12Z ECMWF
REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PREFERRED SOLUTIONS.  AMONG THESE
SOLUTIONS...THE PARALLEL GFS WAS MOST PREFERRED...WHILE THE NAM
MIGHT BE TOO HEAVY...ECMWF TOO FAR SOUTHWEST AND INLAND ACROSS THE
MID-ATLANTIC...AND GFS TOO DRY.  THE SMALL-SCALE NATURE OF THE LOW
SEEMS TO FAVOR THESE HIGHER RESOLVING MODELS.

FOR THE RESIDUAL BAROCLINIC ZONE DRAPED ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST COAST
AND SUBSEQUENT APPROACH OF THE COLD FRONT AND POSSIBLE WAVE OF LOW
PRESSURE BY WEDNESDAY...PREFER A SOLUTION CLOSE TO THE ENSEMBLE
MEANS TO ADDRESS THE HIGH SOLUTION SPREAD...WHICH IS ABOUT HALFWAY
BETWEEN THE SLOWER 00Z NAM AND FASTER 00Z PARALLEL GFS.  THE
OPERATIONAL GFS IS CONSIDERED TOO DEEP AND THUS TOO STRONG WITH
ASCENT ACROSS THE CENTRAL GULF COAST REGION TUESDAY NIGHT...WHILE
THE 12Z ECMWF IS CONSIDERED TOO WEAK AND FAST WITH THE COLD FRONT
CROSSING THE SOUTHEAST INTO WEDNESDAY.  THUS...THE FINAL QPF
ACROSS THE GULF COAST AND SOUTHEAST REFLECTS A SOLUTION SOMEWHERE
BETWEEN THE NAM AND PARALLEL GFS...WITH BASIN-AVERAGE AMOUNTS OF
1.5 TO POSSIBLY 3 INCHES FOR NORTHERN FLORIDA.  A RISK FOR
EXCESSIVE RAINFALL WAS CONSIDERED.  HOWEVER...
OBJECTIVE GUIDANCE IS TOO DISPERSIVE TO SUPPORT AN OUTLOOK AT THIS
TIME.
