SYNOPSIS. High pressure to the north will weaken in advance of a storm system that will impact the region Thursday night into Friday night. High pressure will then return and generally persist with dry weather into the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. A weak coastal trough is showing signs of developing offshore closer to the west wall of the Gulf Stream early this morning. A few showers are likely to develop offshore with this feature, but this should remain offshore. The only change made for the midnight update was to nudge lows up a degree or so well inland where high clouds are steadily thickening.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY/. High confidence Thursday and Saturday with moderate confidence Thursday night through Friday night. Chilly high pressure to the north will break down Thursday as a coastal trough develops near the FL/GA coasts. Clouds will be on the increase and we can't rule out a few showers near the coast as low-level moisture/lift increase. The trough should sharpen up Thursday night near the GA/SC coasts before pushing north and west through the forecast area Friday as a warm front. This will lead to increasing shower coverage as deeper moisture and upper forcing also increase. There could even be a few thunderstorms as low/mid-level instability increases, especially Friday afternoon/evening, although likely not sufficiently to cause any severe storms. However, deep layer shear is strong and supportive of organized convection so can't completely rule out a severe storm with damaging winds or even a tornado. Otherwise, rain chances will end from southwest to northeast Friday night as a cold front moves through leading to cooler and drier conditions on Saturday. Temperatures will be near to below normal Thursday, then likely get above normal Friday before returning back closer to normal Saturday.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Dry sfc high pressure will spread across the Southeast United States late weekend along the southern edge of a large mid-lvl trough of low pressure extending across much of the Midwest to Northeast states. The pattern will support slightly cooler conditions across the area late weekend into early next week as northeast winds prevail within high pressure that becomes centered across the Mid- Atlantic states. However, winds should turn more onshore Wednesday as the high shifts offshore in advance of a low pressure system approaching the East Conus during the middle of next week. Onshore winds in combination with a fairly large ridge of high pressure building aloft should support a warming trend midweek.

In general, high temps should range in the upper 50s/lower 60s Saturday through Monday, then warm into the middle/upper 60s by Wednesday. Overnight lows should dip into the middle/upper 30s inland to lower 40s near the coast Saturday night through Monday night, then remain in the upper 40s/lower 50s by Wednesday night.

AVIATION /06Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. VFR at both KCHS and KSAV through the day with increasing chances for IFR to MVFR cigs developing by late afternoon/early evening, especially at KSAV. High resolution guidance suggests isolated showers could make a run for the upper Georgia coast mid-late morning, but suspect any activity will remain east of KSAV. Isolated showers could also approach KCHS after 03z tonight, but impact probabilities are too low to justify a mention. Cigs should remain above alternate minimums through the period.

Extended Aviation Outlook: Moderate confidence in mostly VFR conditions through Thursday, although can't rule out MVFR ceilings as low-level moisture/lift increase over the area as a trough develops just southeast of the area. Expect a better chance of greater restrictions from low clouds/fog/showers Thursday night into Friday night as a warm front and then cold front affect the area. High confidence in VFR conditions returning Friday night or Saturday morning and continuing through early next week, although there is a very low risk of minor restrictions Monday due to a passing upper level disturbance.

MARINE. Tonight: Winds and seas will continue to slowly subside tonight, however conditions will still be supportive of Small Craft Advisories for all zones with the exception of the Charleston Harbor.

Thursday through Monday: Moderate confidence through the period. High pressure to the north and low pressure offshore will give way to a coastal trough/warm front Thursday night and Friday and then a cold front Friday night. Small Craft Advisories will remain in effect into Thursday night within 20 nm, possibly returning later in the week, but likely continue through Saturday night beyond 20 nm for lingering 6 foot seas. No significant concerns Sunday and Monday with a weak pressure gradient expected.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Strong high pressure to the north and low pressure offshore will maintain elevated north/northeast winds into Thursday which could lead to tide levels slightly above Coastal Flood Advisory thresholds near Charleston during the morning high tide.

CHS WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. GA . None. SC . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 11 PM EST this evening for AMZ350- 352-354. Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EST Sunday for AMZ374.
