Synopsis
High pressure extending into the forecast area from the atlantic
will weaken tonight ahead of an approaching cold front. The
slow moving front will be in the area Saturday through Monday.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected along and ahead
of the front. Unseasonable drier weather expected by the middle
of next week.

Near term until 8 am Saturday morning
Showers and thunderstorms struggled to develop this afternoon
with most of the activity along the coast and a few showers
making the eastern midlands. Cold front continues marching
toward the forecast area... Currently stretched from
northwestern ga through central al. Expect clouds to increase
overnight as the front nears the area and pwat values surge to
over 2 inches around daybreak. With the clouds overnight lows
will remain on the warm side with most locations in the mid to
upper 70s.

Short term 8 am Saturday morning through Sunday night
A cold front will sag southward through central south carolina and
east central georgia on Saturday. Pw values in excess of two
inches and 850mb winds speeds 20-30 knots parallel to the
frontal boundary should lead to localized flash flooding,
especially along and south of i-20. Wpc has that area in a
slight risk for flooding.

The frontal boundary pushes to the coast during Saturday night into
Sunday. There should be sufficient residual pw behind the front for
scattered diurnal convection, especially south and east of columbia.

Much drier and cooler air filters into the region Sunday night into
Monday with highs only in the lower to mid 80s and dewpoints in the
50s to lower 60s. There may be some convection in the far south
related to the sea breeze front.

Long term Monday through Friday
An unseasonably cool and dry airmass will dominate through much of
next week with highs in the lower to mid 80s and lows in the upper
50s to mid 60s. Some moisture and warmer temperatures will return on
Thursday and Friday as the surface high moves into the atlantic
ocean.

Aviation 03z Saturday through Wednesday
High confidence forVFR conditions through at least 06z.

Isolated convection possible overnight given weakly unstable
airmass. Probability too low to include in tafs at this time.

Southerly winds will be near 10 knots overnight so fog not an
issue.

Hrrr guidance and lamp suggest low threat for stratus... So keptVFR
overnight. Still anticipate an increase in clouds with bases
above 3000 feet during the early morning hours. Could see
scattered showers develop at dnl ags by daybreak. More
widespread convection expected to affect the TAF sites by early
afternoon ahead of a slow moving cold front. Strong gusty winds
possible with storms in addition to cig vsby restrictions.

Extended aviation outlook... Convection and associated restrictions
will be possible Saturday night through Sunday ahead of a cold front.

Cae watches warnings advisories
Ga... None.

Sc... None.

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.
