Synopsis
High pressure will pass north of the region today, then shift
into the atlantic Thursday. A surface trough will develop inland
on Friday and prevail into the weekend.

Near term through tonight
Today: shortwave ridging will move across the area today aloft,
well ahead of the baggy trough analyzed across the gulf of
mexico coast. At the surface, high pressure will build in from
the north and the center of the high is expected to become
centered near the DELMARVA by the late afternoon. Model qpf
fields are quite sparse for the forecast area, and this makes
sense when looking through model soundings. Mid-level
temperatures are quite warm, resulting in very weak lapse rates.

A few model solutions have tried to generate some weak activity
near inland portions of the savannah river, but this just seems
unlikely given the warm profiles. Can't completely rule out an
isolated shower thunderstorms in this region, but its not worth
carrying in the forecast. Onshore easterly flow will prevail
which will help keep temperatures limited to the upper 80s for
highs. We will likely see good coverage of mid high level
clouds, but sky coverage is expected to be on a diminishing
trend by later in the day.

Tonight: moisture will begin to improve, mainly for southeast
georgia near the altamaha river. Models even depict the
development of a weak coastal trough late tonight. Weak
convergence along the line and within some coastal speed
convergence in the onshore flow will likely result in increasing
coverage of showers and thunderstorms along the georgia coast
and atlantic waters by late. Pop's continue to be in the 20-30
percent range. Lows will fall into the upper 60s in the far
north, ranging to the low 70s elsewhere.

Short term Thursday through Saturday
Heights aloft will gradually build through the period as weak
ridging builds in from the south. Moisture will be on the
increase Thursday as surface high pressure shifts offshore and
low level flow backs to south to southwesterly, bringing a
moist, conditionally unstable airmass back into the region.

Shower and thunderstorm initiation will occur mainly along the
seabreeze corridor, but unimpressive lapse rates could limit the
severe threat. However, models continue to show a weak mid-
level wave passing across the area late Thursday, which would
enhance convection coverage and increase the severe threat.

Given the uncertainty of the wave timing, kept pops slightly
above climo Thursday, mainly along and south of i-16, where the
most moisture will be in place. Moisture will have overspread
the entire area Friday as a weak surface through develops
inland. The same is expected on Saturday, so pops remain
slightly above climo for the entire area to reflect this. Storm
initiation is expected each afternoon along the sea breeze.

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

Long term Saturday night through Tuesday
High pressure will prevail in the atlantic while a surface
trough persists inland. Southerly flow around the high will keep
plenty of moisture advecting into the southeast during this
time period. The result will be the typical summertime
shower thunderstorm pattern.

Aviation 12z Wednesday through Sunday
Vfr conditions expected to prevail through 12z Thursday at kchs
and ksav.

Extended aviation outlook: brief flight restrictions possible
in showers thunderstorms at ksav Thursday, then both ksav and
kchs into the weekend.

Marine
Today and tonight: high pressure to the north and northeast will
result in northeasterly flow this morning across the local
waters. Then by the afternoon the flow will become more easterly
and will increase thanks to a tightening pressure gradient. Wind
speeds area expected to increase into the 15 knot range, with
some 15-20 knots possible across the georgia waters late. No
real change overnight, with prevailing easterly flow. Seas will
be in the 2-4 ft range, highest beyond 20 nm.

Thursday 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.
