Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
The region will remain between atlantic high pressure and broad
low pressure to the west. This pattern should support south
winds through most of the week, yielding warm and moist
conditions.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Subtropical ridging from the east will hold form today as weak
shortwave energy meanders along the eastern gulf coast. Modified
forecast soundings are not overly unstable today with a well
defined h7 theta-e minimum centered right over southeast south
carolina and southeast georgia. This will essentially cap off
the atmosphere and the potential for deep convection despite
highs warming into the lower-mid 80s. The various cams are
consistent in developing isolated, low-topped showers ahead of
the sea breeze and with sufficiently deep low-level moisture in
place, this can not be completely discounted. A few coastal
showers could move inland this morning, but activity over the
atlantic should diminish as low-level convergence shifts west
to ahead of the sea breeze. Plan to drop mentionable pops for
the coastal counties and just include 20-30% pops across the
interior. 30% pops along with a mention of a slight chance of
tstms were clustered across the far southwest georgia zones
where guidance shows deeper moisture and weaker mid-level
capping.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday
Tonight: sfc high pressure centered over bermuda will build across
the forecast area tonight. In addition, slight increases in h5
heights are expected as mid level low drifts west across the deep
south. Forecast sounding across the CWA indicate that a significant
subsidence inversion will build around h850. Given little to no sfc
instability and forcing, I will indicate decreasing values of schc
pops overnight. Low temperatures should verify well in the upper 60s
to around 70 degrees.

Tuesday through Thursday: the area will remain between atlantic
high pressure to the east and low pressure to the west. A cold
front will approach from the north Wednesday night before
stalling out just north of the area. This pattern will maintain
the tropical air mass in place and lead to higher than normal
rain chances, especially each afternoon and evening. In general
we think the highest chances will be inland near the better
moisture, instability and forcing. Some spots could pick up over
an inch. No significant flooding or severe weather is
anticipated at this time. Temperatures will generally be near to
above normal, especially lows.

Long term Thursday night through Sunday
High pressure pushing southeast from the ohio valley mid-atlantic
region will combine with atlantic high pressure as surface low
pressure tries to organize slightly in the central gulf of mexico.

The low should move toward the north-central gulf coast and this
will continue to feed tropical moisture into the local area leading
to high rain chances especially each afternoon evening. We continue
to discount the GFS which indicates a secondary low move north along
the southeast u.S. Coast as it remains an outlier. Temperatures
should stay near to above normal.

Aviation 14z Monday through Friday
Vfr conditions expected across kchs and ksav through the 12z
taf period. It is possible that ground fog or few to sct stratus
may develop over ksav through 13z, highlighted with a tempo.

The potential for convection will remain below levels to
mention in the tafs, but isolated showers will develop across
the region this afternoon. Winds are forecast to remain from the
south-southeast between 5-10 kts, between 10-15 kts during the
heat of the afternoon.

Extended aviation outlook: a persistent tropical air mass will lead
to higher than normal rain chances through the period, mainly each
afternoon. Thunder chances will be low however given the limited
instability.

Marine
Today: large high pressure centered over bermuda will gradually
build west over the region through tonight. Southeast winds
will continue through today and tonight, speeds remaining
between 10 kt or less. Wave heights are forecast to range from
2-4 ft within 20 nm to 4-5 ft beyond 20 nm.

Tuesday through Saturday: the area will remain between low pressure
to the west and high pressure to the east. No significant wind
concerns, however seas will be elevated near small craft
advisory levels close to the gulf stream into Tuesday and again
starting Friday night.

Chs watches warnings advisories
Ga... None.

Sc... None.

Marine... None.
