NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
158 PM EST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
a frontal zone will remain near the southeast coast through 
Tuesday. A series of low pressure systems will move northeastward 
along the front...keeping weather unsettled. A strong cold front 
approaching from the west will move through the forecast area late 
Wednesday or Wednesday night. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
sub-tropical plume of moisture extending from central Mexico to 
the southeastern states continues to be evident on the water vapor 
imagery this afternoon. Visible imagery shows that skies cleared a 
bit across the central and northern midlands allowing temperatures 
to rise into the middle 50s. Isentropic lifting will increase late 
afternoon into early evening in response to the approaching 
shortwave from the Gulf Coast. 


Light rain expected to develop and move northward into the 
forecast area from the south around sunset. Isentropic lift 
maximizes over the forecast area during the 03z-09z time frame and 
the area falls within the right entrance region of a strong 120+ 
knot upper jet throughout much of the night...aiding in forcing 
for precipitation. Leaned towards the higher met pop guidance and 
will carry categorical probability of precipitation for the entire forecast area...with 
the highest probability of precipitation centered around the 06z-09z time frame. 
Temperatures will fall into the lower to middle 40s limited by 
wetbulb temperatures. Despite the high probability of precipitation overnight...total 
rainfall amounts are expected to be light at generally a tenth of 
an inch or less...with some isolated amounts closer to a few 
tenths of an inch. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Wednesday night/... 
models showing the bulk of the rainfall pushing north of the County Warning Area 
early Monday morning...and will have decreasing probability of precipitation during the 
morning. Still expecting scattered rainfall with some drizzle 
through the day. Wedge will hold strong Monday through Monday 
night. With plenty of cloud cover and northeast winds...temperatures 
will not recover much through the day Monday...with readings 
remaining mainly in the 40s. Overnight lows Monday night will 
also be in the 40s. Deeper moisture will return to the County Warning Area again 
during the day Tuesday...and with this increase the area will see 
an increase in probability of precipitation. Wedge may diminish and weaken late in the day 
Tuesday...which would allow temperatures to reach the 50s. With 
The Wedge breakdown and the expected return of warmer 
air...temperatures Tuesday night will not drop much and may 
even rise slowly through the night. Categorical probability of precipitation through 
Tuesday night. Stronger cold front is poised to move into the 
region Wednesday. At this time the upper support remains behind 
the surface cold front...with the surface front moving through 
Wednesday evening. Widespread rainfall will move through the 
region early in the day Wednesday...then should see a decrease in 
probability of precipitation late Wednesday into Wednesday night. With the warm air ahead 
of the cold front...Wednesday should be the warmest day of the 
period as temperatures rise into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Can 
not rule out isolated thunder on Wednesday if the upper support 
can catch up with the surface front...but at this time the 
confidence is not high enough to mention. Winds from Wednesday through 
Wednesday night will become strong and gusty...with wind gusts of 
20 miles per hour possible. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday through Sunday/... 
return to more seasonable temperatures behind the front. The 
models continue to show a dry airmass for Christmas day. Winds 
will remain breezy and gusty on Christmas day...then the gradient 
weakens by Thursday evening. 


Moisture may increase associated with another cold front moving 
into the area Saturday into Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation /19z Sunday through Friday/... 
VFR conditions becoming MVFR after sunset...and IFR/LIFR late 
tonight through Monday morning. 


Skies have cleared a bit this afternoon but increasing clouds 
expected late this afternoon with lowering ceilings to MVFR around 00z 
ags/dnl/ogb and by 03z at cae/cub as isentropic lift increases 
ahead of approaching shortwave energy. Light rain should 
overspread the terminals from south to north overnight. Ceilings 
expected to drop to IFR after 06z with the rainfall and increasing 
wedge conditions. Persistent southwesterly flow aloft atop the 
northeasterly low level flow will keep wedge conditions in place 
after 12z which will result in lowering visibilities in drizzle and light 
rain with IFR/LIFR ceilings. 


Extended aviation outlook...widespread MVFR to IFR conditions 
expected Monday through Wednesday evening as a series of systems 
cross the region. Breezy conditions possible Wednesday afternoon 
into Thursday morning.

Cae watches/warnings/advisories...
