1037 am edt Sun may 26 2019

Synopsis
High pressure and unseasonably hot conditions will persist most
of this week. Some relief from the oppressive heat is expected
by next weekend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
No significant changes were made to the previous forecast.

It will be another hot day as the stagnant synoptic pattern
featuring anomalously strong deep-layered high pressure will
remain largely unchanged across the area. A warm start combined
with slightly rising 850 mb temperatures near 21-22c and
pinned sea breeze will yield unseasonably hot temperatures
across the area. The warmest conditions look to occur the
metter- reidsville- savannah- springfield- beaufort corridor,
mainly in the lower 100s. Even the beaches should reach near 90
degrees. It appears the record highs for may could be
challenged at both kchs and ksav.

Dewpoints are expected to mix out in the lower 60s inland from
the sea breeze, then pool back into the lower-mid 70s across the
coastal counties as the sea breeze moves inland. Heat indices
are expected to peak near 105 degrees for most of the area with
lower 100s farther inland. This will support a heat advisory
from late morning through the afternoon.

No appreciable rain chances are expected although we can't
completely rule out an isolated shower thunderstorm as we saw
yesterday.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Wednesday
Tonight: warm and humid with lows in the lower 70s well inland
to around 80 at the beaches and downtown charleston.

Memorial day through Wednesday: the mid-levels will consist of
strong high pressure centered over the fl panhandle Monday
morning. The center of the high is forecasted to drift into the
northeastern gulf of mexico late Monday, then remain there
through Wednesday. Heights over our area will slowly drop
through Tuesday. But then they may rise a bit Wednesday as the
periphery of the high tries to build back into the southeast.

Naefs still shows 500 mb heights peaking at about 2 standard
deviations above normal Monday and above normal temperatures at
almost all levels of the atmosphere at that time. At the
surface, areas of high pressure will stretch from the western
atlantic into the southeast states through Wednesday. Each
afternoon weak thermal troughing will develop either over or
nearby our inland areas each day. But strong subsidence and a
very dry atmosphere will stop any convection from forming. The
only moisture will be fair weather clouds each afternoon. The
heat wave will continue with temperatures forecasted to reach or
exceed record values throughout the short term. For the high
temperatures, we continued the blend of models, thickness
values, and accounted for the location of the sea breeze. Monday
appears to be the hottest day in the short term because the sea
breeze may be pinned to the coast for most of the day, allowing
most temperatures away from the beaches to reach at least 100
degrees. Tuesday highs may be a degree or two cooler. What helps
is the sea breeze may make it farther inland earlier in the
day. This same trend is expected again on Wednesday. Lows each
night will only cool down into the 70s. Dew points will
initially mix out each afternoon, then increase along the
coastal corridor as the sea breeze moves inland. Heat indices
will be close to 105 degrees on Monday and Tuesday, which is
heat advisory criteria.

Long term Wednesday night through Saturday
The mid-level ridge will remain in place Wednesday night, then
finally flatten out Thursday night followed by zonal flow Friday and
Saturday. Surface high pressure will continue to dominate our
weather pattern through Thursday. The models still show a cold front
approaching our area Friday or Saturday. They have trended wetter,
which seems a little suspicious considering the front will be
running into our very dry airmass. We opted to only introduce slight
chance pops Friday and Saturday. But early indications are rainfall
amounts won't put much of a dent in our drought. Temperatures will
trend downwards each day. However, they are still forecasted to
remain above normal.

Aviation 14z Sunday through Thursday
Vfr.

Extended aviation outlook:VFR.

Marine
Through tonight: south to southwest winds will prevail through
the period. Directions will locally back to the southeast along
parts of the georgia coast with the formation of the sea breeze.

Speeds will average about 15 kt with gusts to 20 kt through the
period. Seas will average 1-3 ft, highest to the east.

Monday through Thursday: atlantic high pressure will remain the
dominant synoptic feature. Winds will mostly be from the sw,
backing a bit during the day with the sea breeze and veering a
bit at night with the the nocturnal low level jet. Away from the
gusty sea breeze, winds will mainly stay at or below 15 kt
through midweek. Seas will peak at 3-4 ft.

Climate
The ongoing heat wave will challenge or break many of these records:
earliest 100 degree temperatures:
kchs: june 2, 1985.

Ksav: may 25, 2019 and 1953.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
