NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
306 am EDT Thursday Aug 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
drier air and a building upper ridge just to our west will reduce 
thunderstorm chances through Friday...and lead to hotter high 
temperatures. An approaching cold front and increasing moisture 
will increase the thunderstorm chance over the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
considerable high level convective debris cloudiness will continue 
to spread across the area early this morning. Clouds will thin out 
after daybreak. Upper ridge centered over the lower Mississippi 
Valley/Gulf Coast will be building into the region. Warm start to 
the day along with 850mb warm advection/downslope flow will result 
in temperatures approaching 100 degrees this afternoon. 
Instability appears weaker than yesterday given warmer 
temperatures aloft. Level of free convection remains high...convective temperatures high and 
trigger lacking. Isolated afternoon thunderstorms expected. Dew 
points mixing out into the middle 60s to low 70s this afternoon so 
heat index likely maxing out around 105 degrees. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Saturday night/... 
warming continues through Friday as upper ridge extends into the 
area. Convection will likely remain isolated with trigger 
lacking/weak instability. Expect temperatures slightly warmer than 
Thursday most areas. Heat index expected to remain below 110 
degrees. Back door cold front appears to move into the region late 
Saturday or Saturday night from North Carolina...however latest 
GFS suggests upper ridge will remain strong with long wave trough 
off the North Carolina/Virginia coast. So temperatures may remain 
quite high through Saturday with cooling delayed until Sunday as 
front moves southwest of area. Scattered showers and thunderstorms 
ahead of the front late Saturday or Saturday night although model 
probability of precipitation suggest large Standard deviation/uncertainty. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday through Wednesday/... 
upper ridge to our west with upper trough and closed low to our 
NE...providing a northwest flow aloft for our forecast area. Slightly cooler 
temperatures Sunday as front moves slowly to the south of area. 
Scattered showers. Large pop uncertainty due to timing issue with 
frontal passage. Front may be slow to move south of the area 
Sunday...especially in the csra. Front to push to our south early 
next week...with surface and upper ridge over the eastern 
Seaboard. So reduced probability of precipitation Monday through Wednesday as ridge builds 
in from the northeast. 


&& 


Aviation /07z Thursday through Monday/... 
expect VFR conditions to dominate the period...with early morning 
MVFR conditions at ags/ogb. 


Cirrus from upstream convection continues to blanket the area and 
will work to limit fog development. With the clouds expected 
through much of the night have decreased the fog threat at 
cae/cub/dnl to a tempo group while maintaining MVFR fog at 
ags/ogb. Fog which develops will quickly erode with sunrise with 
the remainder of the period VFR. Chances of diurnal convection 
remain too low to include in tafs. Winds through the period will 
be westerly at 5 knots or less. 


Extended aviation outlook...MVFR or IFR conditions possible in late 
night and early morning fog through the period. Isolated afternoon 
and evening thunderstorms may also bring restrictions. 


&& 


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