area forecast discussion
national weather service charleston sc
124 am edt Wed jun 28 2017

Synopsis
A cold front will gradually move through the area this weekend,
moving off the coast Monday. Drier high pressure will build in
from the northwest for much of next week before moving offshore
late week.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Early this morning: radar imagery shows that only isolated
showers exist, mainly in the midlands. The rest of the night
will be dry and quiet, with just mid and high level clouds
moving overhead. No noteworthy forecast changes were made.

Short term 6 am this morning through Friday
Heights aloft will gradually build through the period as broad
troughing shifts off the northeast coast and weak ridging builds in
from the south. Close proximity to surface high pressure over the
mid-atlantic will ensure that Wednesday remains dry for most of the
area outside of the altamaha river region, where subsidence will be
weaker and moisture marginally better.

Moisture will be on the increase Thursday and Friday as high
pressure shifts offshore and low level flow backs more south to
southwesterly, bringing a moist, conditionally unstable airmass back
into the region. Shower and thunderstorm initiation will occur
mainly along the seabreeze corridor each afternoon, but with overall
unimpressive lapse rates, severe threat will remain limited. Have
opted for pops slightly above climo mainly along and south of i-16,
where moisture content will be greatest, Thursday. Moisture will
have overspread the area by Friday as a weak surface through
develops inland, and pops have been maintained slightly above climo
for the entire area to reflect this. Global models are hinting at
the passage of a weak mid-level wave Friday, which may further
enhance convective initiation and coverage.

Temps will be near normal through the period, with most variations
owing to cloud cover and precip coverage.

Long term Friday night through Tuesday
Nearly zonal flow will persist aloft with surface high pressure in
the atlantic. Southerly flow around the high will advect plenty of
moisture into the southeast as an inland trough develops this
weekend. The result will be the typical summertime
shower thunderstorm pattern with the coverage and intensity trending
upwards each day into the weekend.

Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
Vfr conditions expected to prevail through 06z Thursday at kchs
and ksav.

Extended aviation outlook:VFR conditions will prevail. Brief flight
restrictions in showers and thunderstorms are possible at ksav
Thursday, then both ksav and kchs through the end of the week.

Marine
Tonight: a stationary front will meander s-se of the local area,
as continental high pressure from the ohio valley gradually
expands overhead with rising pressures. Easterly winds as high
as 10 or 15 kt this evening will back to NE with some land
breeze influences late, allowing for winds to back around to
the NE at similar speeds. Seas will remain near 2 ft within 20
nm of the coast, up to 3 ft across the eastern half of the outer
ga waters.

Wednesday through Sunday: high pressure sliding from the mid-
atlantic coast to its more seasonally typical bermuda high
location will remain in control through the period. Expect
mainly light to moderate breezes, with the usual summertime sea
breeze wind enhancements near the coast in the afternoon. Seas
will remain mainly in the 2 to 3 foot range in small southeast
swell and minor local windswell.

Rip currents: dependent upon how much swell energy reaches the
beaches on Wednesday will determine the exact risk of rip
currents. Since there is uncertainty at this time we prefer to
go with a low risk.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
