NWS Forecaster Discussion


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.
