area forecast discussion National Weather Service Columbia SC 652 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 Synopsis... an approaching cold front will cross the area tonight and stall near the coast. A wave of low pressure is expected to develop along the front adding sufficient for significant rainfall Tuesday into Wednesday. Dry high pressure will spread across the region Thursday through Saturday. && Near term /through tonight/... scattered showers will linger across the eastern midlands and lower Savannah River area early this morning. A cold front crossing the MS River Valley this morning will continue moving east to cross the midlands and csra tonight and stall near the coast. Moisture surging northward ahead of the front will spread showers back into the area today. The best chance for showers will be across the eastern half of the forecast area...where instability and moisture is highest. Isolated thunderstorms are also possible with lifted index values near minus 3. Widespread clouds this morning will decrease from west to east this afternoon. Should see daytime highs in the 70s given our warm start this morning. Mainly dry weather is expected tonight as the cold front moves off the coast. Clouds and mixing will hold overnight lows in the upper 40s west to upper 50s east. && Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday night/... the main upper trough axis shifts eastward on Tuesday as energy digs into the base of the trough across the Southern Plains. Best chance for any rainfall should still be along the coast through the day...with some inland progression possible by the afternoon across the east. With the rainfall and clouds increasing...temperatures will cool back down for afternoon highs...with readings mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s. By Tuesday night...the models continue moving the upper trough eastward through the southern Mississippi Valley region...and in response to the approaching trough...a surface low is forecast to develop off the Carolina coast along the old cold front. As the low develops...moisture and precipitation will spread inland during the overnight hours. Have increased the chance of rain to near 100 percent Tuesday night with lows in the 40s. On Wednesday...the upper trough will push towards and through the region...while the surface low begins moving northward along the coast in response to the upper trough. Wrap around moisture and precipitation behind the surface low will continue across the region. Continued with cool temperatures on Wednesday because of clouds and expected precipitation and surface winds from the north/northwest. By Wednesday night...models show the system pulling out to the northeast and away from the region. Conditions will dry out behind the system and colder air will once again settle into the area. Overnight lows back down to around freezing. && Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... once we get into Thanksgiving and the weekend...conditions quiet down and dry out as high pressure settles over the area...and the upper pattern flattens out. Expect temperatures to remain below normal through the period. && Aviation /12z Monday through Saturday/... expect IFR or MVFR conditions through much of the taf period. Satellite loop and observation indicate some breaks in the low clouds across portions of northern Georgia into portions of the upstate of SC. However...all of the taf sites currently reporting IFR/MVFR conditions for ceilings. Along the I-95 corridor and eastward...scattered showers continue to move northeast. WV loop continues to try and back the middle/upper flow and expect this activity to continue through much of the forecast period. At this time...will carry a vcsh for ogb through the morning/early afternoon period. BUFKIT time sections and guidance not very optimistic with conditions at taf sites today. Expect conditions to improve to VFR by late in the day. This may happen sooner...but not confident enough at this point to bring up conditions faster. Models indicate a strong 800 mb/500 mb winds moving across the area today and expect breezy conditions developing at all taf sites by later this morning and continuing through much of the day from the southwest. By this evening/tonight...guidance tries to once again lower ceilings across the area. With a 20 to 30 knots low level jet...would expect less of a fog threat...which guidance does not show...but more of a stratus threat which guidance does indicate. Lowered ceilings back to MVFR around 06z tonight and continued through the remainder of the period. Extended aviation outlook...widespread MVFR or IFR conditions may occur Tuesday night and Wednesday associated with low pressure tracking northward along the Carolina coast. Improving conditions for Thursday and Friday. && Cae watches/warnings/advisories... SC...Flash Flood Watch through this evening for scz030. Georgia...none. && $$
