NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Columbia SC 
425 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will briefly ridge into the area tonight. The high 
will be off the coast Thursday with an onshore flow into the 
forecast area. A warm front will also be just south of the area 
Thursday. A cold front will cross the area Friday night into 
Saturday morning...bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms. 
Dry weather is expected Sunday as high pressure returns to the 
region. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Thursday morning/... 
this afternoon...the backdoor front continues to push southward 
through the southern midlands. Surface observation showing a lot of drying 
in the dewpoint behind the front. Right along and south of the 
front...some cumulus can be found. This will mix out and push 
south through the afternoon. Showers have all pushed off the 
coast...and dry weather for the remainder of the afternoon is 
expected. Temperatures will continue to rise through the 
afternoon...although a little slower in areas north of the front. 
This is due to some low-level cold advection pushing in on 
northeasterly winds. Highs in the lower 70s north...middle 70s 
central...and upper 70s across the south still expected. 


Tonight...with the front south of the area and with high pressure 
moving across the region...it will remain dry. The main upper 
level ridge will also be pushing into and across the area 
overnight. In general...used the guidance consensus for the low 
temperature forecast. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Thursday morning through Friday night/... 
high pressure moving off the middle-Atlantic coast will direct an 
onshore flow into the forecast area Thursday and Thursday night. 
The models display a warm front in Georgia with isentropic upglide 
in the forecast area. There should also be moisture and 
instability associated with a middle-level shortwave trough shown by 
the NAM and GFS Thursday afternoon and evening. The NAM and GFS 
MOS support probability of precipitation of 30 to 40 percent with the greater chance 
Thursday afternoon ahead of the shortwave trough and near the time 
of maximum heating. There may be enough instability for 
thunderstorms especially in the south part where the NAM lowers 
surface-based Li/S to near -4. 


There will be little in the way of upper support for precipitation on 
Friday. The upper level flow will be nearly zonal as another cold 
front crosses the Ohio River valley and lower MS River Valley. 
Went with near guidance consensus with a dry forecast and highs in 
the low to middle 80s on Friday. The chance for showers return Friday 
night as the cold front moves into western SC. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday through Wednesday/... 
an upper level trough over the eastern states Friday night and 
Saturday moves off the coast as upper level ridging develops 
across the eastern states Tuesday and Wednesday. We should see a 
warming trend with rising heights. 


A cold front extending across central SC into southwest Georgia will 
move south and east of the midlands and csra by midday Saturday. 
We kept chance probability of precipitation across the eastern half of the forecast area 
Saturday morning...then dry for the entire forecast area Saturday 
afternoon behind the front as downslope flow along with drier air 
moves in. 


High pressure building into the region Saturday afternoon should 
be centered over the midlands late Saturday night...bringing 
clear skies and light winds with strong nocturnal cooling. The 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) MOS have lows in the middle 30s to low 40. The dry air 
mass should remain in place through Sunday with highs near 70. 


High pressure will move off the coast Sunday night...allowing 
moisture to return. Onshore flow and isentropic lift warrants at 
least a slight chance for showers on Monday. More instability 
Tuesday coupled with isentropic lift so will include a chance of 
showers and thunderstorms. By Wednesday the GFS has another cold front 
crossing our area. The European model (ecmwf) holds the front well to our north 
with a warm and moist southerly flow across the area. Given 
uncertainty due to model inconsistencies...will forecast a chance 
of showers and thunderstorms for Wednesday. High temperatures in 
the low to middle 70s Monday are expected to warm to the lower 80s by 
Wednesday ahead of the cold front. Near normal lows in the 40s 
Sunday night warm into the 50s Monday night and Tuesday night. 


&& 


Aviation /21z Wednesday through Monday/... 
VFR conditions expected through this evening and much of tonight. 
Possible MVFR ceiling in the csra towards morning. 


The cold front has dropped south of all of the taf sites late this 
afternoon and is currently just south of the central Savannah 
River area. Visible satellite imagery shows some scattered middle- 
level cumulus across the csra...with clear skies elsewhere. Models 
begin to indicate return moisture along the csra towards sunrise 
on Thursday...with ceilings developing around 2500 feet by sunrise. 
Have trended that way with ags/dnl. Remaining sites appear to 
remain VFR through the period. 


Extended aviation outlook...restrictions possible Thursday 
evening through Friday night as frontal boundaries move through 
the region during the period. 


&& 


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