NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
149 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
surface high pressure will extend into the forecast area from the 
Atlantic through the middle of the week. A persistent upper ridge 
will help maintain the hot temperatures. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
visible imagery early this afternoon showing less cumulus coverage 
than 24 hours ago and this may be attributed to higher convective 
temperatures in the middle 90s today...some drier air noted at 850mb...and 
precipitable water values around 1.7 inches. Enhanced cumulus and 
some isolated showers being observed over central Georgia where 
moisture is better. Currently weak instability across the area 
with lifted index values around -3c to -5c but lapse rates 
continue to rise and are up to 7.5 c/km. 


Successive runs of the hrrr continue to show little convection 
over the forecast area late this afternoon and tonight...while the 
latest 12z Storm Prediction Center WRF run is very similar to its 00z run showing 
convection developing in the csra and western midlands late 
afternoon and drifting southeast and merging with sea breeze 
convection over the lower csra and southeastern midlands. Will 
maintain slight chance probability of precipitation across the northern and central 
midlands while keeping low chance probability of precipitation in the more favorable area 
of the csra and southeastern midlands 21z-02z. Cannot rule out an 
isolated severe thunderstorm and weak storm motion will provide a 
locally heavy rain and possible flooding threat where storms train 
or remain nearly stationary. Expect some convective debris clouds 
around overnight which will help limit fog potential and expect 
overnight lows in the middle 70s. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Tuesday night/... 
surface ridging should continue east and south of the forecast 
area. Expect weak Lee-side troughing in the area. Strong heating 
and convergence into this feature should help support 
thunderstorms...but continued upper ridging should limit coverage. 
Also...the surface feature should remain weak. The NAM and GFS 
MOS have low probability of precipitation with the consensus around 20 percent. It will 
remain hot. Used the warmer temperature guidance based on recent 
verification. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Sunday/... 
the GFS and European model (ecmwf) show a weakening front stalling before reaching 
the area during the middle of the week. The models show another 
front may reach the area late in the medium-range period. The 
models indicate upper-level ridging continuing. The 
GFS...ECMWF...and ekd MOS show above normal temperatures with probability of precipitation 
20 to 30 percent through the period. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Monday through Saturday/... 
higher convective temperatures today along with some drier air at 850mb 
has resulted in a later start to the cumulus development but it is 
underway with weak to moderate instability in place. Isolated 
convection is expected but low confidence in any storms impacting 
terminals so not in the forecast at this time. Expect VFR 
conditions throughout the forecast period except for some MVFR fog 
at fog prone ags/ogb...fog appears less likely at cae/cub/dnl. 
Light southerly winds this afternoon will become near calm 
overnight and pick up from the south again after 15z Tuesday...less 
than 5 knots. 




Extended aviation outlook...restrictions possible in late night 
and early morning stratus and fog. Scattered mainly afternoon 
showers and thunderstorms Tuesday through Saturday. 


&& 


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