Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Charleston SC 1252 AM EST Thu Feb 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will prevail through Thursday. A weak cold front could move into the area Thursday night followed by a wave of low pressure that could impact the region Friday and Friday night. High pressure will prevail Saturday, before another frontal system approaches the area early next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. As of 1250 AM: The forecast appears on track. No changes needed.

Previous Discussion: Made minor changes based on recent trends to temperatures and dew points. Low temperature forecast is on track. Lowered winds in inland GA areas.

Previous Discussion . Even though temperatures were far above climo today, given the dry air mass in place and clear skies, temperatures have been able to plunge significantly since around sunset. This trend will not continue, but given winds becoming light or calm, radiational cooling will still be good. However, a 15-25 kt low level jet will keep the planetary boundary layer somewhat mixed, and that along with air mass modification looks to keep min temperatures several degrees warmer than last night.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY/. Thursday: Another dry and warm day is expected. Though, as moisture moves into the area ahead an approaching cold front and low pressure system, cloud cover will slightly increase throughout the day which could keep temperatures a degree or two cooler than previous days. Though, highs will be in the 70s. Then, overnight, expect mostly cloudy skies but the area should remain rainfree and lows will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Friday and Saturday: There is still some inconsistency within the models of the timing and strength of the cold front and just how far south it will dip on Friday before stalling across the region. A shortwave will also move across the area during the day, further enhancing isentropic lift and PWATs, mainly across our inland counties and the SE SC coast. Light showers are expected starting late Friday morning. While far SE GA could remain rainfree, cloudy skies are expected. By Friday night, the stalled front should lift north as a warm front supporting the continuation of showers overnight, mainly across SE SC where decent forcing will exist. While the timing of the system could change and showers could linger longer or diminish sooner, high pressure will build into the region on Saturday and a decent day is expected once the lingering moisture moves north of the region.

There will be quite a temperature swing that occurs on Friday as highs will be in the low 60s to low 70s. Lows will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Then, Saturday will be a much warmer day with low to mid 70s across SE SC and upper 70s to low 80s across SE GA.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. The next system looks to approach Sunday night with potentially another round of showers developing ahead of a potent cold front which would affect the region Monday into early Tuesday morning. Mild temperatures are on tap through Monday with highs in the mid to upper 70s and lows in the 50s, with Sunday and Monday being the warmest as warm air advection strengthens along with the northward advancement of a warm front. Temperatures will cool on Tuesday in the wake of the cold front as high pressure gradually builds through the rest of the week.

AVIATION /06Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. VFR for the 06Z TAF period.

Extended Aviation Outlook: VFR through Thursday night. There could be flight restrictions during low clouds/showers late Friday through Saturday morning, then again late Sunday into Monday.

MARINE. Tonight: The area will remain along the northern fringes of weak high pressure extending across the western Atlantic. The pattern should result in mainly southwest winds at or below 10 to 15 kt through much of the night, before veering more westerly and dropping several knots with land breeze influences late. Seas will range between 1-2 ft through early evening, then potentially build up to 2-3 ft across northern SC waters and offshore GA waters tonight.

Thursday through Monday: High pressure will prevail through late Thursday and no marine concerns are expected. On Friday, a weak cold front will move into the area before stalling across the waters. Then overnight Friday, it is expected to lift north as a warm front. Winds and seas will both increase on Friday afternoon, especially across the Charleston county waters. Though, as of now, have kept winds and seas below Small Craft Advisory criteria. By Saturday, another tranquil marine day is expected. Then, on Sunday night into Monday, winds will pick up again ahead of a cold front. Small Craft Advisories could be needed.

There could be a risk for reduced visibilities in low stratus Friday into early Saturday, and maybe again due to actual sea fog Sunday, if the wind fields aren't too strong.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Astronomical influences will support a potential for shallow coastal flooding concerns late in the week and early next week, due to the upcoming Full Moon on the 27th, and the perigee of March 2nd. The chance of any issues would mainly be in the Charleston area starting with the Friday morning high tide. Current forecast for Friday morning high tide is 6.9 and have added mention in the Hazardous Weather Outlook.
