Synopsis
A continued southwest upper flow, with a series of embedded
upper disturbances and resultant surface waves, combined with
abundant atmospheric moisture will bring rain at times through
Saturday. A cold front will cross the area Sunday with dry high
pressure returning Monday.

Near term through tonight
Regional radar as of 16z showing light rain mainly in the
northern half of the forecast area moving northeastward.

Satellite imagery showing a thick blanket of low clouds in place
across the region. Wedge conditions will continue through this
afternoon with high pressure ridging into the area from the
north. Light rain and drizzle expected at times with QPF amounts
around a tenth of an inch or less in most locations. Northeasterly
surface flow will continue at around 8 to 10 mph. Temperatures
are on track with lower temperature guidance for highs still
appearing reasonable. The warm front will lift northward into
the area this evening and tonight with winds becoming southerly
behind the front. The temperature forecast overnight is highly
dependent on how far northward the front moves. Fog is expected
to develop with abundant low- level moisture in place and the
front in the area and may become dense at times.

Short term Thursday through Saturday night
Our moist pattern continues through the end of the week.

A frontal bounday over the area Thursday will move south of the
csra Thursday night then stall. Models continue to disagree on
the location on the front during the day. Cool wedge conditions
are expected to linger north of the boundary with much warmer
air to the south. Our forecast followed the NAM model closely
with the front over central sc during the day, before moving
south Thursday night. This will mean high temperatures only in
the 50s across the northern midlands with 70s across the
southern midlands and csra.

Wedge conditions will overspread the entire area Thursday night
and continue into Saturday as cool high pressure ridges in from
the north. Widespread cloudiness along with a chance for rain
will continue. High temperatures Friday and Saturday will range
from the 50s north to the lower 70s south. Overnight lows will
range from the mid 40s north to the 50s south.

Long term Sunday through Tuesday
Another cold front should move through the area during the
afternoon evening on Sunday with continued rain chances. Dry
conditions will briefly overspread the area Sunday night and
Monday as high pressure builds across the region. A moist
southerly flow will return Tuesday, bringing a chance for
showers once again. Expect mild temperatures in the 70s ahead of
the front on Sunday. Temperatures will moderate to near normal
by Tuesday.

Aviation 16z Wednesday through Sunday
Ifr lifr conditions expected for a majority of the 24-hr taf
period. Low-level wind shear will also be an issue.

Wedge conditions are in place across the region this morning and
will continue through the day with light rain and drizzle at
times. A warm front will lift north into the area tonight and
stall. Ceilings have dropped into the ifr or lifr category at
all of the terminals with little or no improvement expected
through the period. Visibilities have also dropped to generally
MVFR in light rain and fog. Expect visibilities to further
decline tonight due to shallow low-level moisture with the
front in the area. Surface winds will be out of the northeast
today at around 7 to 10 knots. The kcae 88d vad wind profile
supports including mention of llws. Continued to follow the nam
and include low-level wind shear through the 24-hour taf
period.

Extended aviation outlook... Precipitation and flight restrictions
are expected at times through Saturday as a series of weather
systems move through or near the area.

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.
