SYNOPSIS. High pressure will prevail through Wednesday. A cold front will move through Thursday evening, then stall off the coast. Low pressure will develop along the front Friday then move northeast Friday night and Saturday. Dry high pressure will then build in from the west.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. Thin cirrus will continue to traverse the area overnight, but will have no bearing on otherwise optimal radiational cooling with calm conditions away from the immediate shoreline. Temps running anywhere from a couple of degrees colder to a couple of degrees warmer than this time last night. Given a southeast and south flow in the lowest few thousand feet and some air mass moderation, it generally won't be quite as cold as last night. Even so, still looking at min temps about 6-8F below climo.

There could be a little shallow ground fog and perhaps shallow freezing fog in open spaces, as well as steam fog along some marshes, small ponds and river basins.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. High pressure over the western Atlantic will extend across the area through Wednesday night. No weather concerns with mostly sunny skies and temperatures moderating back to seasonable levels.

An arctic front will push through the area Thursday evening and then stall off the Southeast coast on Friday. Shortwave energy ejecting out of southwest flow aloft will allow low pressure to develop along the front Friday into Friday night. Meanwhile, cold high pressure will build inland. Deep moisture feed and strong isentropic ascent will lead to precipitation overspreading the area.

Attention then turns to the potential for wintry precipitation with this system. The first time period of concern is late Thursday night into early Friday morning. Thermal profiles continue to show a significant warm nose above the shallow cold layer, so the threat will hinge on the surface temperatures. Latest guidance indicates that temps should remain above freezing, and precipitation will remain all liquid. If any were to occur, the best chance for freezing rain would be across the far interior Dorchester and Berkeley counties, though accumulations with this would be minimal.

The better potential will come early Friday evening into Friday night. Cold air will continue to advect into the area and rain is expected to changeover to freezing rain. There remains significant differences between models during the latter half of this time frame (late Friday night/early Saturday morning) with regards to how quickly moisture exits the area, so forecast details such as intensity/accumulations and coverage will need fine tuning. However confidence is increasing that at least portions of the area will see a few hundredths or even around a tenth of an inch of ice accumulations. Locations across the far interior roughly from Jenkins county northeast to Berkeley counties will see the higher ice accums.

Outside of precipitation, Friday will be gusty and unseasonably chilly. Temperatures are expected to range from the upper 30s far inland to the upper 40s across coastal southeast Georgia.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Large spread in model guidance for Saturday. 18/12z ECMWF and Canadian have low pressure and moisture pulling away from the area, while the GFS develops another low off the southeast coast. We leaned more heavily on the drier solutions, with the threat for rain and freezing rain decreasing Saturday morning. Cool and dry high pressure will return for Sunday and Monday. Another system could arrive during the middle of the week, but models again show quite different scenarios. Temperatures through the period will be below normal.

AVIATION /06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Other than a small potential for a brief period of marginal MVFR visibilities in shallow ground fog between 10Z and 13Z this morning, solid VFR conditions will prevail.

Extended Aviation Outlook: Periodic flight restrictions likely Thursday evening through Saturday morning in precipitation and low clouds. Gusty winds possible Friday into Saturday.

MARINE. Tonight: High confidence in a tranquil night across the southeast SC/GA Atlantic coastal waters with high pressure overhead. Winds will be variable at 5 knots or less with seas around 1 foot, possibly to 2 ft near the Gulf Stream.

Wednesday through Sunday: No marine concerns through Thursday. Conditions will then deteriorate Thursday night behind a cold front. Small Craft Advisories will likely be needed for most, if not all, marine zones as early as Thursday night and continuing into Saturday. Conditions should improve on Sunday.
