Synopsis
A cold front will linger near the coast or just offshore
through Tuesday. High pressure is forecast to pass to the north
Wednesday, then move into the atlantic during the second half of
the week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
No significant changes were made with the latest update. A cold
front across the area should make a bit more southward progress
through the day which will keep the best
moisture instability convergence closer to the lower sc coast
into eastern portions of southeast ga. Scattered to numerous
showers and some thunderstorms are expected in these areas,
especially south of i-16. Similar to Sunday, high pwats near 2
inches and the potential for convective training could yield
pockets of flooding, mainly south of savannah in urban and low-
lying poor drainage areas. An isolated severe storm could also
occur with damaging winds, mainly closer to the altamaha river.

Highs will warm into the mid 80s for most locations with upper
80s possible, mainly interior southeast ga.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday
Tonight: convection across the far south will quickly wind down
during the early evening hours. Another weak area of low
pressure is expected to develop along the cold front overnight,
which could push isolated shower activity back onshore along
the beaches early Tuesday. Will show slight chance pops across
the various beach communities to account for this. Lows will
range from the mid-upper 60s inland to the upper 70s along the
georgia coast.

Tuesday through Thursday: a cold front will linger just
offshore Tuesday. At the coast: chance pops remain in place for
our coastal counties due to their proximity near the
moisture lift associated with the front. The highest instability
is far offshore, so we're not expecting any significant storms
across the area. Inland: pops are slight chance as drier air
from a surface high to our northwest builds into the area. The
front will be pushed away from our area Tuesday night as the
high moves closer. The center of the high is forecasted to pass
to our north Wednesday. Most of the area should be dry at that
time, but models hint at some moisture instability across our
southernmost counties in the afternoon evening hours as some
convergence takes place along the sea breeze. We have slight
chance pops to account for this. The high shifts offshore
Thursday, allowing S to SE flow to develop late. This will bring
more moisture into our southern counties and further increase
the threat of showers thunderstorms. High temperatures will be
within a few degrees of normal each day.

Long term Thursday night through Sunday
Nearly zonal flow will persist aloft with surface high pressure in
the atlantic. Southerly flow around the high will advect moisture
into the southeast as an inland trough develops into the weekend.

The result will be the typical summertime shower thunderstorm
pattern with the coverage and intensity appearing to increase each
day into the weekend.

Aviation 18z Monday through Saturday
GenerallyVFR, although there is a low risk of restrictions
from low clouds showers thunderstorms at ksav this afternoon
and fog and or low clouds at kchs ksav late tonight.

Extended aviation outlook: brief flight restrictions are possible
due to showers thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon evening and then
again on Friday.

Marine
Today: north to northeast winds will prevail behind a passing
cold front. Expect a bit of a surge in winds, up to around 15 to
possibly 20 kt at times. Seas will build a bit but should stay
3 ft or less.

Tonight: a light northeast flow regime will hold in place with
speeds around 5 kt. Seas 2-3 ft during the evening hours will
subside to 1-2 ft after midnight.

Tuesday through Friday: a cold front will linger just offshore
Tuesday, bringing changing wind directions. High pressure is
forecasted to pass to our north Wednesday, causing an increase in
the pressure gradient, which will lead to slightly higher winds and
seas Wednesday and Thursday. Conditions will improve as the high
moves into atlantic during the second half of the week, allowing the
gradient to decrease.

Tides coastal flooding
Tides could once again approach shallow coastal flooding
thresholds in the charleston harbor with the late evening high
tide cycle. Tide levels at fort pulaski look to peak just shy of
shallow coastal flooding levels. A coastal flood advisory may be
needed for parts of the lower south carolina coast, especially
for charleston county.
