Synopsis
A cold front will cross through the region tonight, then stall
just offshore and south of the region on Sunday. Low pressure
is expected to pass well offshore early next week, before
another cold front impacts the area later in the week.

Near term until 6 am this morning
The cold front will continue top push through our georgia
counties before dawn, as a high pressure wedge builds in its
wake. Far offshore is a broad area of low pressure that will
begin to lift northeast and reaches near 30n latitude a few
hundred miles east of jacksonville by 12z Sunday. Low level
convergence and considerable moisture will allow for isolated to
scattered showers near the front, and also along our coastal
corridor, with little to no chance of convection elsewhere.

Widespread stratus trapped within the wedge will create overcast
skies, and temps will drop to 70-75f most communities, with
even a few upper 60s far northwest tier, and mid-upper 70s over
parts of coastal georgia.

Short term 6 am this morning through Tuesday
Sunday and Monday: a cold front will slowly progress to the coast
and likely stall just offshore and or south of the area to start off
the week. As this occurs, a cooler wedge-type pattern will follow,
initially setting up across the midlands Sunday, then eventually
nudging closer to parts of southeast south carolina and inland
southeast georgia on Monday as the quasi-stationary front drifts
further south. The position of the front will dictate most precip
coverage across the area through Monday and also keep any tropical
low development track well offshore over the atlantic. Precip
chances should be highest near the southeast georgia coast on
Sunday, where pwats remain between 2.00-2.25 inches near the
southward moving front. Precip chances could persist into Monday,
mainly across southern most locations near the altamaha river where
moisture lingers behind the front. Overall instability will remain
quite low under cloudy skies both days with little to no threat of
severe weather anticipated. Brief heavy rainfall will be the main
concern given deep moisture levels and weak wind fields in place.

High temps will be a few degrees below normal each day, peaking in
the mid 80s across much of southeast south carolina and mid upper
80s across southeast georgia, warmest near the altamaha river.

Overnight lows should range in the upper 60s lower 70s well inland
to mid upper 70s near the coast.

Tuesday: a quasi-stationary front should remain just south of the
region, but a wedge-like pattern should weaken across the southeast
united states in advance of a mid upper lvl trough of low pressure
and associated sfc cold front approaching from the west. Some
guidance suggests what is left of a large cluster of thunderstorms
currently ongoing across the western gulf of mexico to phase with
the longwave trough before shifting toward the area into midweek
(bringing higher precip chances to the area). Regardless, a
developing southwest sfc flow should advect deeper moisture to the
region while mid upper lvl forcing and the sfc front arrive late,
likely after sunset. Given the anticipated pattern, scattered to
numerous showers and or thunderstorms are possible later in the day,
highest chances west of i-95. Temps should warm a few degrees more
than the previous day with highs generally ranging in the mid upper
80s (coolest along the coast) to around 90 degrees across inland
locations of southeast georgia.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
A tropical low off the mid-atlantic coast Tuesday night will
continue to lift northeast away from the region on Wednesday.

Another cold front is forecast to cross the area later Wednesday or
Thursday. The front will likely stall off the coast through late
week while high pressure builds inland. Given the front lingering in
the vicinity, rain chances will remain in the forecast. Highest pops
will be near the coast. Temperatures are expected to be near normal.

Aviation 06z Sunday through Thursday
In the wake of a cold font, a strong high pressure wedge will
create a low level inversion that traps considerable moisture
underneath. This leads to ifr ceilings at kchs and ksav through
at least 14z. The inversion lifts enough during the late morning
and afternoon into Sunday night, which should lead to MVFR
ceilings and eventuallyVFR ceilings. Our confidence on exactly
when this will happen is no more than moderate, so adjustments
could be required in later forecasts. Also, kchs is positioned
between the wedge of high pressure to the west and a possible
developing low near the gulf stream. This will create a decent
pressure gradient, resulting in occasional gusty NE winds
during the day.

Extended aviation outlook: flight restrictions are possible at both
chs and sav terminals into Monday, mainly due to lower cloud ceilings
and showers associated with a building wedge-type pattern across
the area early next week. Brief flight restrictions will also be
possible with showers thunderstorms ahead of an approaching cold
front Tuesday into the middle of next week.

Marine
Overnight: the cold front continues its march southward at a
steady clip, and will pass into the georgia waters before
daybreak, and then south of all waters by sunrise. A tightening
of the gradient with the inland wedge and broad low pressure off
to the south-southeast of the area will generate increasing
winds and building seas. We have small craft advisory conditions
on the amz350 waters, for NE winds of 15-20 kt with gusts of 25
kt and seas of 3-5 ft. On the other waters conditions will stay
below advisory limits, but we did raise NE winds and seas from
the previous forecast. Mariners can expect a few strong t-storms
to occur, with lightning strikes and heavy rains.

Sunday through Thursday: high pressure will build across inland
areas behind a cold front shifting south of the area early next week
while tropical low pressure tracks well east of the area offshore.

The pattern will likely result in a tightening pressure gradient
over coastal waters Sunday and Monday, favoring north northeast
winds 15-20 kts and seas building up to 4-5 ft. Conditions could
approach small craft advisory levels for a period on Sunday or
Monday before the tropical low departs north northeast of the region
Tuesday. Conditions will then remain well below small craft advisory
levels through midweek.

Rip currents: increasing east northeast winds could contribute to an
enhanced risk of rip currents on area beaches late this weekend into
early next week, especially if tropical low pressure intensifies
while tracking well offshore.

Tides coastal flooding
Astronomical tides will be running close to minor coastal flood
advisory levels next week and onshore winds could lead to even
higher tides, mainly during the evening high tide cycles starting
Monday. In addition, there is the potential for some heavy rain
around the times of high tide which could exacerbate any flooding
issues.
