Synopsis
Into early next week, the area will remain hot and humid
between an inland trough of low pressure and atlantic high
pressure. A cold front is expected to stall over or close to
the region by the middle of next week, bringing higher rain
chances and somewhat cooler temperatures.

Near term until 6 am Friday morning
Latest trends through midnight indicated multicell thunderstorms
and associated weak cool pool gradually pushing offshore and
decreasing in coverage and intensity. Deep moisture lingers and
lighter rains inland will also disperse but isolated tstms also
possible given the myriad of mesoscale boundaries in the region.

Showers and tstms still going in southeast ga in areas along
i-95 where the atmosphere was not previously tapped.

We adjusted 10 pm observed temps and pops and mainly blended
current conditions into the anticipated quieter overnight
forecast grids. Our area will remain between atlantic high
pressure and troughing inland. Both the synoptic models and the
cams are in good agreement showing land areas becoming
relatively dry overnight.

Short term 6 am Friday morning through Sunday
Friday through Sunday: outside any thunderstorms, heat index values
will top out in the 105-109f range at many locations, and heat index
values could briefly top out around 110f at some locations near the
coast just inland from the beaches as the sea breeze pushes inland.

Guidance depicts above normal pops Friday afternoon early evening,
especially across southeast ga, due in part to an enhanced weakness
in the upper ridge over the region. Capped maximum pops around 50
percent across SE ga, but locally greater pops could eventually be
required. In typical fashion for mid-july, a couple of pulse
thunderstorms could briefly become severe with damaging wind gusts.

Saturday and Sunday: per latest guidance, only subtle changes in the
configuration of the upper ridge and inland surface trough could
translate to reduced coverage of diurnal afternoon into evening
thunderstorms as compared with Friday afternoon evening. The risk
for brief isolated damaging wind gusts will continue each
afternoon evening.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday
Moderate confidence this period. The low-level lee-side trough looks
to persist early in the week before deeper troughing likely moves
into the area for mid week. This will mean increasing rain chances
and lower temperatures, although hesitate to be too aggressive with
rain chances so far out given the rarity of summertime cold fronts
in this part of the country. Heat indices could still be near 110
degrees through Monday but the risk for heat advisories will likely
be over starting Tuesday.

Aviation 02z Friday through Tuesday
Tstms still lingering at or around kchs ksav at 0230z. Lighter
rains at kchs should disperse by midnight withVFR conditions
expected overnight and Friday morning. Tstms are again possible
late day on Friday.

Extended aviation outlook:VFR much of this period. Brief flight
restrictions and gusty shifting winds could occur within near
thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon evening hours.

The chance for thunderstorms associated flight restrictions could be
greatest Friday afternoon evening and starting Tuesday as a cold
front approaches the region.

Marine
Tonight: the synoptic pattern will consist of high pressure in
the atlantic and a trough inland. The surface pressure gradient
will become elevated the first half of the night, causing the
low level jet to set up. Expect S to SW winds up to 15-20 kt
with higher gusts through midnight. Winds will gradually ease
during the second half of the night, as the gradient lowers
slightly. Seas will be in the 2-4 ft range. Showers and tstms
across charleston waters will tend to move away by midnight with
synoptic wind fields returning to south and southwest.

Friday through Tuesday: a typical summer pattern featuring a trough
of low pressure inland and offshore high pressure will support a
continuation of south southwest winds through the period. Wind
speeds will be enhanced near the coast during the afternoon evening
from the sea breeze and across coastal waters during the overnight.

Through this weekend, winds should remain capped around 20 knots and
seas should;d average 2-4 feet, below small craft advisory levels.

Early next week, a cold front will approach the region, and the
probability for local SCA conditions could increase.
