Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
1048 PM EDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
an upper level trough...weak surface boundaries...and plentiful 
atmospheric moisture will remain in place...providing a good 
chance of showers and thunderstorms and near normal temperatures 
through the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Saturday/... 
an 850 mb jet and series of 500 mb shortwaves moving through the trough 
across the eastern portion of the country. These disturbances will 
continue to produce some widely scattered shra/tsra. Radar trends 
currently show no precipitation across the County Warning Area as area remains 
rather stable from earlier convection. 88d regional composite 
shows a cluster of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain from eastern Alabama into west-central 
Georgia. Looks as though they will continue to move toward the area 
overnight. Not sure if they will hold together. The latest high- 
resolution models display widely scattered coverage. We have 
forecasted slight chance probability of precipitation tonight. For Saturday...main trough 
axis will still be west of the area with a southwest middle/upper 
level flow. Models continue to show short wave activity moving closer to 
the region late Saturday afternoon/night. This looks to be the 
best chance for shower/thunderstorm development. Guidance/model 
probability of precipitation rather low on Saturday compared to the previous couple of 
days. Big discrepancies in temperatures tomorrow. Have trended 
closer to the warmer NAM numbers based on low chance of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
and less cloudiness. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday night through Monday night/... 
an upper-level trough will remain over the east Continental U.S. Through the 
weekend...with a series of embedded short waves prognosticated to move 
through the region. A frontal boundary to our north and west 
should slowly slip southward and into at least the northern 
portions of the County Warning Area this weekend. Models maintain precipitable 
water values 1.6 to 1.8 inches throughout the weekend. Chance to 
good chance probability of precipitation still appears to be reasonable. Most convective 
activity would appear to be diurnally favored...though timing of 
short waves and presence of surface boundaries could provide at 
least a slight chance at other times. 


By Sunday night and into Monday the models begin to shift the 
main upper flow to our north with weak southern stream upper 
troughiness remaining over the southeast Continental U.S./Middle Atlantic. Both the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) show an upper low cutting off over the central Apps/middle 
Atlantic Sunday night into Monday. Combine this will a weak 
frontal boundary that could slip south into our forecast area 
during this period...chance to good chance probability of precipitation continue to 
appear reasonable. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) are in general agreement with the upper 
flow pattern through the majority of the longer term. Main upper 
trough appears to weaken and push northeastward...which will bring 
more of a less amplified and more zonal flow to the southeast. 
At the surface the main boundary that has been across the area 
will become more diffuse. The upper pattern hints at another 
trough developing towards Thursday...which would lead to the 
approach of another surface front by the end of the week. Generally 
accepted a blend of HPC and MOS guidance through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
generally VFR conditions expected through the period though some 
restrictions may be possible in and around convection. 


Atmosphere has stabilized from earlier storms and radar is 
generally clear with VFR conditions all terminals. The upper 
pattern remains similar to past days as we are located on the 
eastern side of an upper trough over the Mississippi Valley. 
NAM/hrrr showing possible nocturnal convection developing over 
Alabama/Georgia and lifting east northeastward into the area overnight so 
have included a mention of showers started at 05z ags/dnl and 08z 
cae/cub but with no restrictions at this time. Low confidence in 
stratus/fog development due to a strong low level jet which is 
expected to keep boundary layer mixed...supported by VFR forecasts 
from MOS guidance. Winds will pick up again middle morning from the 
west 15 to 20 knots. Another afternoon of scattered storms 
possible Saturday. 


Extended aviation outlook...expect restrictions at times in mainly 
afternoon and evening thunderstorms and early morning stratus or 
fog. 


&& 


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