Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Charleston SC 400 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build over the area into Friday night. A cold front will then stall over or just north of the area through the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. After sunset, marginal cu field will dissipate, resulting in clear skies overnight. Can't rule out some cirrus dropping in from the north late tonight. Lows will be in the mid/upper 70s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY/. Forecast confidence: Moderate.

Deep high pressure into Friday night across the SC Lowcountry/GA Coastal Empire will give way to an approaching cold front by this weekend. The main concern this period will be the potential for excessive heat, which would really be the first time this year.

On Friday, the low-level flow will be more west-southwest and ridging will be strongest which will limit the sea breeze influence and overall risk for convection. Temperatures should push toward the century mark inland with even coastal areas possibly touching 90 degrees. The biggest forecast challenge is dewpoint temperatures which will likely lower inland during the day but surge near the coast late. At this point we are forecasting heat indices peaking close to 115 degrees just inland from the immediate coast and we have thus issued an Excessive Heat Watch there with a Heat Advisory for slightly lower heat indices for much of the rest of the Lowcountry/Coastal Empire except for areas well inland toward the CSRA where confidence is lowest in reaching heat indices of 110 degrees. Some shortwave energy could help spark a few showers/storms Friday night, mainly in SC, although we left rain chances at about 10 percent or less for now due to low confidence. Lows Friday night will be above normal in the mid to upper 70s most spots with lower 80s near the coast.

Saturday: The front looks to be closer to the area so despite a bit more cloud cover to start it should be another hot day with highs in the mid to upper 90s most inland spots, possibly touching 100 degrees, especially in GA. Heat indices could once again near 115 degrees in spots just inland from the beaches but should at least reach Heat Advisory levels most areas. Some more shortwave energy aloft and the pinned sea breeze could be enough to spark off isolated to scattered showers/storms mostly later in the day. A few of these storms could become severe. Storms will wind down later Saturday night with lows mainly in the upper 70s inland.

Sunday: The pattern is about the same although the mid level troughing is a bit weaker which should lead to a bit better rain chances, especially later in the day once the sluggish sea breeze gets going. Heat indices could once again reach 110 degrees for some areas so additional Heat Advisories will be possible.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Forecast confidence: Moderate.

Deep troughing should prevail keeping the weather more unsettled and cooler than normal. Some periods of heavy rain are possible.

AVIATION /20Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR.

Extended Aviation Outlook: High confidence in mostly VFR conditions at KCHS/KJZI/KSAV through early Sunday afternoon although some restrictions will be possible late Saturday due to showers/storms. There looks to be a greater risk for restrictions from periodic showers/storms starting Sunday night as deeper moisture move into the area.

MARINE. Tonight: South to southwest winds will pick up to 10-15 kt overnight in response to lee-side troughing that develops well to the west. Seas will average 1-2 ft.

Friday through Tuesday: Moderate confidence this period. Atlantic high pressure will prevail with a stalled front inland. Winds could get near Small Craft Advisory levels at times, especially Friday afternoon/evening near the Charleston County coast.
