NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
624 am EDT Sat Sep 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will track northeastward along the southeast coast 
today promoting increased moisture. Drier air will enter the 
region Sunday. A dry front will move through late Sunday night and 
early Monday. Dry high pressure will be in control early next 
week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
upper low off the southeast coast will continue to close off early 
in the day before beginning to slowly move northeast. At the surface 
high pressure will continue to wedge into the western Carolinas from 
the north. A surface low should develop along the coastal front in 
response to the upper low cutting off. This low will keep some 
moisture across extreme eastern portions of SC...while the surface 
ridge nosing in from the north will filter drier air into the 
central and western portions of the region. This should set up a 
good moisture gradient across the region through the day. The 
surface low should spread some isolated to scattered showers inland 
through the day. This will keep the best chance for any rainfall 
across the extreme eastern portions of the County Warning Area. Will continue 
slight chance probability of precipitation for the eastern midlands and csra as showers 
rotate around the low. Expect northeasterly winds near 10 miles per hour with 
gusts around 15 miles per hour through the day. Afternoon highs will be in the 
upper 70s to around 80 across the extreme east where clouds will be 
more plentiful. Highs should be slightly higher across the central 
and western counties due to more sunshine. The surface and upper 
low will lift northeast away from the forecast area tonight allowing 
drier air to filter into the area from the west. Lows in the lower 
60s as skies clear. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday through Monday night/... 
a broad upper trough over the Great Lakes region will shift east on 
Sunday pushing a cold front across the Ohio and Tennessee valleys. 
Low pressure centered off the Carolina coast will track northeastward 
late Saturday and early Sunday with down slope flow developing 
across the forecast area. Sunny skies and compressional heating 
will allow temperatures to rise into the middle 80s to near 90 
Sunday afternoon. The cold front should approach the upstate 
Sunday night. Moisture will increase from west to east ahead of 
the front late Sunday into early Monday. Model precipitable water values are 
maximized during the 06z to 12z time frame on Monday. Continued to 
indicate slight chance probability of precipitation as moisture appears limited. 00z GFS 
run is still quicker than the 00z NAM with the timing of the 
front. The timing of the front will influence heating and the 
amount of instability. 




&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Friday/... 
a large area of high pressure centered over the Ohio Valley will 
bring a much cooler and drier air mass to the area for Tuesday. 
Temperatures Tuesday morning will be several degrees below 
climatology...in the middle 50s north to upper 50s south. Dew 
points are forecast to drop down into the lower to middle 50s. 
High pressure will shift northeastward over New England on 
Wednesday creating a strong easterly low-level flow off the 
Atlantic. Have forecast mostly cloudy skies along with a chance of 
showers and below normal temperatures for the end of the week. 
Model precipitable water values increase to over 1.5 inches by 
Thursday/Friday. Highs will be in the 70s with lows in the upper 
50s to lower 60s. 




&& 


Aviation /10z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
with drier air pushing into the midlands and csra on strong 
northeasterly low-level winds...conditions are forecast to remain 
VFR at this point through the period. 


An upper level trough will be closing off over the southeast today 
as low pressure develops off the coast. Strong 25 knot low level 
jet...along with surface winds between 5 and 10 knots...will keep 
fog from forming. Still can not rule out a stratus deck...but 
confidence in that forming is diminishing as more drier air moves 
into the region. Surface winds will remain from the northeast at 5 
to 10 knots this morning...with a few gusts as mixing increases and 
the surface low strengthens after sunrise. Any convective activity 
during the afternoon is expected to remain well to the east of taf 
sites. 


Extended aviation outlook...no significant restrictions to ceiling 
or visibility expected through the taf period. 


&& 


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