NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
742 am EDT Tuesday Aug 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
weak low pressure will lift northeast along the coast today...with 
a weak surface trough shifting south into the region tonight and 
Wednesday. A relatively dry atmosphere will limit precipitation 
chances for our forecast area. An upper trough and increased 
moisture will lead to better precipitation chances Thursday and 
Friday...followed by expectations of drier air returning for the 
weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
upper ridge over the west Continental U.S. With upper trough east Continental U.S.. a weak upper 
impulse will move slowly east-southeast through the region today...ahead of 
which a weak wave of low pressure will move NE up the SC coast. 
Significant atmospheric moisture gradient remains over the 
region...with the best moisture located to our south and east. 
Latest hi res models and radar loops suggest minimal precipitation threat 
in the near term across the S/east forecast area. As the wave moves further up 
the coast this afternoon...drier air should shift southward across 
the remaining forecast area. Old surface boundary/trough currently across the 
western Carolinas will begin to shift south some into the northern 
and central forecast area late today...along which isolated convection 
possible. However...model forecast soundings generally indicate a 
dry and capped atmosphere. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Wednesday night/... 
weak upper trough to remain over the region with a weak surface 
trough over the central and eastern Carolinas/GA. A generally dry 
atmosphere to remain in place...though there are some indications 
of some moisture increase during the day across southern and 
western areas as some moisture shifts slowly north around upper 
high center to our southeast and ahead of an upper trough approaching 
from the northwest. Will relegate slight chance diurnal probability of precipitation mainly to 
the west/south forecast area. Due to recent dry conditions...will continue to 
lean towards warmer guidance for maximum temperatures...with maximum temperatures near 
or just over 100 possible Wednesday. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Monday/... 
upper ridge center will shift east from The Four Corners region to 
the Southern Plains through the period...with mean upper long wave 
trough remaining over the east Continental U.S.. significant middle level upper 
shortwave trough will continue to approach the region Thursday 
and move through Friday...with significant increase in atmospheric 
moisture prognosticated as moisture from the Gulf shifts north ahead of 
it. GFS projected precipitable water values increase to around 2 
inches. So...probability of precipitation will increase to at least chance...with best 
chances Friday. GFS/European model (ecmwf) agree on shifting best moisture 
offshore Saturday as upper trough moves offshore with appearance 
of generally dry air remaining over the region Sunday. 
So...minimal probability of precipitation expected Sat/sun. Weak upper impulses along with 
some expected increase in moisture may provide some slight 
increase in probability of precipitation Mon/Tue...but confidence limited. Generally 
accepted blend of guidance. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
area of low pressure along the coast near the SC/NC state line this 
morning will slowly track northeastward along the NC coast. 
Showers and storms associated with this low will remain off to the 
east of all terminals today. An area of stratus...along with some 
patchy fog...has developed across the eastern half of SC this 
morning. This will impact the cae/cub/ogb terminals the 
most...with LIFR stratus around 500 feet. Less of a threat at 
ags/dnl...but even there can not rule out a brief period of LIFR 
ceilings. Once mixing begins...conditions should begin improving by 
14z. Strong heating may help support an isolated thunderstorm this 
afternoon...but with shallow moisture the chance is too low to 
include in the terminal forecasts at this time. Light 
northwesterly winds through the day. Abundant low level moisture 
and drier air aloft tonight could lead to possible fog tonight in 
some locations. 


Extended aviation outlook...restrictions possible in late 
night/early morning fog and afternoon and evening thunderstorms. 


&& 


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