Synopsis
An area of low pressure will move northeast of the area
overnight. A stationary front will linger nearby through Sunday
before dissipating. Atlantic high pressure and an inland trough
will then prevail through much of the week.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
Moisture, instability and complex mesoscale boundaries could
support showers thunderstorms at any time location overnight.

However, widespread rainfall appears unlikely per recent
guidance. Thus, persistent pops are graduated from slight chance
inland to chance near the coast. Given pwat values well above 2
inches, any slow-moving thunderstorms could produce locally
heavy rainfall.

Also of note, overnight conditions will favor areas of stratus
and patchy fog, especially where heavy rain fell away from the
immediate coast.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Tuesday
Fairly unsettled pattern will persist into early next week. Surface
high pressure will remain offshore while a weak boundary lingers
inland before dissipating. Deep moisture is progged to reside along
the coastal areas and southeast georgia through the period, with
somewhat drier air inland. It will likely be a pattern where
convection largely fires over the waters during the overnight into
morning hours, and then activity gets going over land during peak
heating as the sea breeze circulation and other mesoscale boundaries
come into play. Pops are a bit higher than normal.

Given wet antecedent conditions, could not rule out some ponding on
roadways, especially in poor drainage areas, where heavy rain falls.

Otherwise, the overall severe weather potential looks low given
marginal instability, but a couple stronger storms are possible
during the afternoon evening hours especially where boundary
interactions occur.

Temperatures will be fairly close to normal, warmest on Sunday.

Highs will range from the low mid 90s inland to mid upper 80s at the
immediate coast. Lows will mainly be in the low to mid 70s.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
Moderate confidence this period. High pressure will linger to the
east with low pressure inland. We generally expect a fairly typical
summertime pattern with mainly afternoon evening scattered showers
and thunderstorms, although the some showers and storms could
persist overnight depending on the placement strength of the upper
level low. An approaching cold front late in the week could lead to
better rain chances but confidence is low in any significant impacts
at this point. Temperatures should remain near or above normal.

Aviation 03z Sunday through Thursday
Given low-level moisture, brief MVFR ifr ceilings could develop
at any time at both terminals overnight into Sunday morning.

Also, a shower thunderstorm cannot be ruled out at any time
overnight through Sunday morning, but 00z tafs limit the mention
of vcts to Sunday afternoon when diurnal thunderstorms could
develop over near the terminals.

Extended aviation outlook: periodic restrictions from mainly
afternoon evening showers and thunderstorms expected at
kchs ksav through mid week.

Marine
Overnight: southwest winds have remain elevated through the
evening, and gusts to 25 knots should remain common for several
more hours especially at 10 nm and beyond. Thus, extended small
craft advisories until 5 am for amz350, amz352 and amz374. Seas
will continue to range from 3-5 feet across nearshore waters to
as high as 6-7 feet beyond 20 nm. Also, thunderstorms could
produce locally hazardous conditions at any time overnight.

Sunday through Thursday: atlantic high pressure will largely be the
dominant feature into mid week. Conditions are expected to remain
below small craft advisory criteria. Winds will generally be out of
the south or southwest at 15 knots or less, with seas 2 to 3 feet
on average.
