AMZ400 Synopsis For Altamaha Sound Ga To Flagler Beach Fl Out To 60 Nm- 154 Am Edt Wed Jun 19 2024

Synopsis -
strong high pressure will remain anchored off coastal new england through Thursday maintaining small craft advisory level onshore winds and waves across the coastal waters. Meanwhile, a trough situated to the northeast of the bahamas will be steered westward towards the southeastern seaboard late this week, with weak low pressure possibly developing as this system traverses the gulf stream waters. Showers and Thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage late this week and through the upcoming weekend across our local waters. High pressure will weaken late this week as it sinks slowly southward towards bermuda, with the axis of this surface ridge extending across our area during the upcoming weekend. Winds and seas will gradually diminish as prevailing winds shift to southeasterly on Saturday and then southerly by Sunday.

Gulf stream -

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Charleston SC 106 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will extend across the region this week. A trough of low pressure will impact the Southeast U.S coast Thursday into Friday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/
Isolated to perhaps scattered showers will impact parts of the area from off the ocean through the overnight hours. This is mainly across the coastal coutnies, where we find Theta-E ridging and deep moisture convergence. There might also be a subtle inverted trough that could add to the potential as it moves closer to shore.

A decent gradient remains in place associated with strong surface high pressure, keeping east and northeast winds as high as 15-20 mph and gusty along coast, with 5-10 mph winds elsewhere. This difference in the winds will result in a fairly large range of min temperatures. We have mid and upper 60s well inland, to the lower and middle 70s closer to the Atlantic.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY/
Wednesday and Thursday: The southern flanks of the expansive upper level anticyclone centered over the eastern United States will begin to buckle just a bit as a well defined TUTT located north of the Greater Antilles approaches the Southeast U.S. coast. The operational GFS is has finally come in line with the rest of the global guidance in keep any surface reflection of the TUTT as an open tropical wave/inverted trough as it moves onshore late Thursday night into the day Friday. Given a modest northeast low-level flow is expected to continue ahead of the approaching tropical wave, steering trajectories favor coastal Georgia for the best chances for measurable rainfall. Still not seeing a strong QPF signal in the various guidance for any concentrated areas of showers given the development of deep convection seems unlikely with the degree of subsidence noted aloft, but isolated to scattered low-topped showers with a few tstms appear likely. Pops 20-40% were maintained for mainly the coastal counties, highest along the Georgia coast. Highs will warm into the upper 80s/lower 90s away from the coast both days with lows Thursday morning dropping into mid-upper 60s well inland to the mid-upper 70s at the beaches. Breezy to locally windy conditions will also persist along the immediate coast and beaches.

Thursday Night and Friday: Rain chances will begin to ramp up late Thursday Night and especially Friday as the approaching tropical waves moves onshore. Shower coverage may lessen a bit Thursday evening as subsidence ahead of the tropical wave spread in from the east, but this will rapidly change as daybreak approaches Friday and the primary wave axis pushes inland. The wave will be accompanied by a ribbon of PWATS in excess of 2 inches. This coupled with some forcing with the weakening TUTT aloft and the convergent/east side of the westward propagating surface wave should be enough to support scattered if not numerous showers with a few tstms. Pops were trended up a bit to 40-60% (highest coast), but given the TUTT will likely be rapidly dampening as it approaches the expansive upper- level anticyclone, there is some hesitancy to go any higher with pops at this time. Further adjustments will likely be needed. Lows Thursday night will drop into the mid-upper 60s well inland to the mid-upper 70s at the beaches. Highs Friday will range from the upper 80s/lower 90s away from the coast with cooler conditions at the beaches.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
The tropical wave and associated TUTT aloft will quickly dissipate over the weekend with the region positioned along the eastern flanks of the large subtropical anticyclone. Despite the dissipation of the TUTT, a broad weakness looks to remain through early next week.
This coupled with sea breeze influences and lingering deep-layered moisture featuring PWATS in excess of 2 inches will support scattered showers/tstms each day. The heat will also begin to build through the weekend and especially Monday with highs warming into lower-mid 90s Saturday with the mid-upper 90s into early next week.
The warmest day looks to occur Monday where a few spots far inland could make a run for 100 before the onset of showers/tstms.
Dewpoints do not look to really mix out during this period with heat indices expected to peak 100-103 Saturday, 102-105 Sunday and 105- 110 Monday, highest across the inland portions of the coastal counties.
Heat Advisories could be needed at some point with Monday being the best day for reaching the Heat Advisory criteria of 108.

AVIATION /06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
KCHS/KJZI/KSAV: While there will be VFR ceilings and the risk for some light showers at times moving in from the Atlantic, VFR is forecast at all sites through 06Z Thursday.

Similar to the past two days, gusty easterly winds will occur from late this morning through about sunset in response to a tight gradient and deep mixing. Winds will frequently gust to 20 or 25 kt, occasionally even stronger.

Extended Aviation Outlook: Brief flight restrictions are possible in afternoon showers/thunderstorms Thursday, especially at KSAV.
Chances of flight restrictions increase at KCHS/KJZI/KSAV terminals Friday and Saturday with lesser chances Sunday.

MARINE
Overnight: A large and strong ridge of high pressure will encompass the coastal waters, with a subtle inverted trough to form nearby. The pattern will favor an enhanced pressure gradient across local waters through the night, with easterly winds gusting upwards to 20-25 kt. Favorable long duration onshore fetch will also allow seas to build across local waters, eventually peaking between 4-6 ft across nearshore waters and 5-7 ft across offshore Georgia waters. Small Craft Advisories will therefore be in effect for all local waters outside the CHS Harbor tonight, but a brief lull in winds is possible this evening before 6 ft seas arrive across nearshore waters around midnight.

Wednesday through Saturday: Gusty northeast winds will persist into Friday as a tropical waves approaches from the east and a modest gradient persists over the coastal waters. Northeast winds will average 15-20 kt with gusts to 25 kt during this time. Seas will remain above 6 ft through Thursday night within 20 NM and into Friday evening for the waters 20-60 NM offshore. Small Craft Advisories are in effect for these waters. Seas look to peak 5-6 nearshore waters and 6-8 ft in the offshore waters, mainly on Thursday. Winds in the Charleston Harbor will be near advisory thresholds, but are expected to hold just sky. The need for an advisory there will be reevaluated Wednesday morning. Both winds and seas will begin to diminish Friday night into Monday.

Rip Currents/High Surf: Expect the risk for strong and dangerous rip currents to spread into all beaches Wednesday which will persist into Thursday. A high risk for rip currents is being highlighted for all beaches for both days. NWPS breaking wave guidance shows breakers reaching 3-5 ft along the beaches on Wednesday and Thursday, highest in the Folly Beach area. Given only spotty instances of 5 ft breakers are being depicted, the situation for Wednesday looks to marginal for a High Surf Advisory at this time.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING
Surface high pressure will remain off the coast of New England with a tight pressure gradient and elevated winds across the South Carolina and Georgia coast. A full moon on 6/22 will also cause the astronomical tides to slowly build. There is a chance that minor coastal flood stage could be reach on the Wednesday and Thursday evening high tides for Charleston Harbor.

Tides at Fort Pulaski are forecast to remain below minor flood stage.
