Synopsis
Atlantic high pressure will prevail this evening, before a cold
front approaches from the north tonight. The front will cross
through the area on Saturday, then stall offshore Sunday. Low
pressure could pass well offshore during the first half of next
week. Another cold front could impact the region late next
week.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Convection to the west of i-95 and north of i-16 has waned,
we have no more than 20-30% pop, mainly northwest counties.

Otherwise, convective debris clouds will slowly thin and cannot
rule out a late night shower or tstms along far northern zones
or coastal locations of charleston county. There continues to
be signals of some fog, but not enough to add to the forecast
since condensation pressure deficits aren't low enough and there
will be lingering convective debris clouds.

Lows will be about where they have been of late; lower and
middle 70s west of us-17, upper 70s to near 80f closer to the
coast.

Short term 6 am this morning through Monday
Saturday: a cold front associated with a large mid upper lvl trough
of low pressure will approach from the northwest during the day.

Ahead of the front, an onshore wind will advect deep moisture
characterized by pwats between 2.00-2.25 inches across the region,
helping set up a round of at least scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms during the afternoon evening. Modest instability
(sbcape 1500-1750 j kg) should limit the overall severe weather
threat. However, an isolated strong or severe thunderstorm can not
be ruled out during the afternoon into early evening. The greater
concern will be localized heavy rainfall given deep moisture and
weak wind fields in place as the front slowly shifts into the
region. Activity should slowly weaken, but persist into overnight
hours. High temps should range in the upper 80s to lower 90s,
warmest away from the coast in southeast georgia. Overnight lows
should range in the low 70s inland to mid upper 70s near the coast.

Sunday and Monday: a cold front will slowly progress to the coast
and likely stall along or just offshore Sunday, then slowly drift
further south and east into Monday. As the occurs, a potential
tropical cyclone will track north northeast well offshore. The
position of the front and tropical entity offshore will play a
fairly significant role in how much precip can be expected across
southeast south carolina and southeast georgia early next week.

Precip chances should be highest east of the i-95 corridor on Sunday
where pwats remain between 2.00-2.25 inches near the slowly moving
front shifting offshore. Enhanced precip chances could persist near
the coast through Monday as tropical low pressure shifts past the
area well offshore, but the overall threat of heavy rainfall should
be more limited compared to Sunday given the expected position of
the sfc front offshore and the area remaining well west of any
tropical cyclone track. Severe weather potential is quite low Sunday
and especially Monday given abundant clouds and little instability.

Afternoon highs should be a few degrees below normal, ranging in the
mid upper 80s. Overnight lows should range around 70 well inland to
low mid 70s near the coast.

Long term Monday night through Friday
Models are in good agreement that low pressure will be lifting
northeast away from the area Monday night into Tuesday. Another cold
front could impact the region later in the period. There are some
discrepancies in regards to convective coverage but with elevated
moisture and shortwave energy, it looks to stay a bit unsettled.

Temperatures are expected to be near normal.

Aviation 06z Saturday through Wednesday
Conditions are expected to beVFR a large portion of the time at
both kchs and ksav this morning. However, there are concerns
for possible restrictions at ksav between about 10z and 13z
Saturday due to fog and or stratus.

There then looks to be scattered to numerous shra tsra across
the local region this afternoon and evening as a cold front
draws closer from the north. Aided by a low level flow off the
ocean and upper difluence, there is a good chance that at least
occasional flight restrictions (if not more prolonged sub-vfr
weather) will occur. For now we have just vcts and CB clouds at
both terminals, but adjustments will definitely be required in
later TAF issuances with the potential for some heavy rainfall.

Extended aviation outlook: periodic flight restrictions are possible
Saturday night Sunday due to showers thunderstorms associated
with a slowly passing cold front. Brief flight restrictions are
possible Monday and Tuesday behind a front stalled offshore.

Marine
Overnight: tranquil weather is expected with S to SE winds at
or below 12 kt early, becoming mainly S or SW at or below 10 kt
by daybreak. Seas will be 2 ft or less.

Saturday through Wednesday: a cold front will approach from the
north northwest Saturday and stall across the coastal waters through
early next week. Well south of the region, a tropical low should
slowly strengthen while gaining latitude off eastern florida,
remaining beyond all coastal waters while tracking north northeast
well off the southeast coast. The setup will initially favor
southeast winds across coastal waters Saturday at or below 10-15 kt,
before turning predominately northeast and increasing to 15-20 kt
Sunday and Monday as the pressure gradient tightens between the
stalled front and passing tropical low offshore. Seas should also
build up to 4-5 ft. Conditions could approach small craft advisory
levels for a period on 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.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.
