Synopsis
The area will remain situated between inland low pressure and
offshore high pressure into early next week. A stronger storm
system may affect the area toward the middle of next week.

Near term through tonight
Today: the forecast region will lie between an atlantic ridge
with its axis roughly east-west along 30n, while a broad lee
side trough develops to the west-northwest. One interesting
feature that is worth noting is the remnants of t.C. Barry that
is now an open wave, that will move through ohio and toward
lake erie.

Meanwhile, the mid and upper levels will feature a strong
5930-5940 meter anticyclone centered over southern georgia and
northern florida, that gets nudged a little south in response to
a tail of vorticity that one could argue is associated with the
remains of barny that reaches the central and southern
appalachians late. While this could have a minor effect on the
formation of convection this afternoon, it looks like better
forcing will occur due to the sea breeze and the proximity to
the inland trough. The overall thermodynamic environment is
somewhat impressive, with the most noticeable feature the
mucape as great as 3000-4000 j kg. That along with pwat in
excess of 2 inches will lead to scattered t-storms developing
near and inland from the us-17 corridor starting around 1-2 pm
as we reach our convective temps. Dcape is forecast up near
1200-1500 j kg which will support the possibility of strong or
marginally severe downbursts of wind in isolated storms. Also
with a slow and erratic storm motion (mainly to the east-
southeast around 5 mph), there is also a heavy rain potential
with localized flooding concerns.

It'll be another hot day with h8 temps of 19-20c, or around 1-2
standard deviations above normal. This will produce MAX temps in
the mid and upper 90s most places inland from the intra-coastal
waters, with even some locations reaching the century mark from
allendale to evans, tattnall and candler county where the lower
rain chances will occur. Dew points will mix out some far
inland with a deep westerly flow, but will pool in the mid and
upper 70s along the coastal corridor. This will equate to max
heat indices reaching as high as 108-111f, and highest along the
coastal counties. For now we feel that with scattered storms
during the time of peak heating, advisory level heat indices of
110f will be too short-lived and cover too small of an area to
hoist a heat advisory. Should convection be delayed and or
coverage end up less than forecast, than we could issue an
advisory later this morning.

Tonight: convection will rapidly fade this evening and along
there are indications of some late night showers in the ocean
where the best convergence and instability will occur, we have
the bulk of the night free of showers and t-storms. Depending
upon how much convection occurs at the climate sites today, we
could be close to our record high minimums for kchs, kcxm and
ksav for both july 17 and 18.

Short term Thursday through Saturday
Moderate confidence this period. At the surface inland troughing
will prevail mainly north and west of the area while ridging
prevails to the southeast. The pattern will favor a few showers
and or storms mainly over the atlantic each morning with scattered
showers and thunderstorms mainly inland during the
afternoon evening. No significant risk for severe storms is expected
due to the mostly pulse nature of the convection but certainly can't
completely rule out isolated severe storms each day because of
mesoscale boundaries like the sea breeze. The main weather story
this period will be the heat as temperatures remain well above
normal, mainly mid-upper 90s inland each afternoon with heat indices
peaking close to 110 degrees away from the immediate coast. Heat
advisories will be possible if confidence increases in greater
coverage duration of 110+ heat indices. Overnight lows could also be
near record high levels in the upper 70s to lower 80s, especially at
kchs kcxm.

Long term Saturday night through Tuesday
Moderate confidence this period. The low-level lee-side trough looks
to persist through the period while upper ridging gives way to more
troughing, especially toward the middle of next week. For now we
have more or less maintained a climatology persistence forecast with
rain chances mostly peaking around 30-40 percent each afternoon.

Temperatures should remain above normal through Monday night at
least. Heat indices should mostly peak in the 105-110 degree range
each afternoon through at least Monday, so the risk for heat
advisories appears low at this time.

Aviation 08z Wednesday through Sunday
Due to the wet grounds from convection on Tuesday, there could
be some ground fog around daybreak at kchs. Otherwise,VFR much
of the time through 06z Thursday at kchs and ksav. The exception
would be for possible temporary flight restrictions in tsra at
both sites from about 19-23z as activity develops along the sea
breeze.

Extended aviation outlook: low risk of flight restrictions from
mainly afternoon evening showers and thunderstorms through
early next week.

Marine
Today: the coastal waters will be located under the w-nw
portions of strong ridging in the ocean, while a well defined
and broad trough forms inland. The gradient does tighten a
little this afternoon and as sea breeze circulations develop and
feed into storms inland, SW winds of 10 kt or less will back to
the S and increase to at least 10-15 the second half of the
day. Seas of 1-2 ft this morning will climb to 2-3 ft this
afternoon with the higher winds.

Tonight: there is decent pinching that occurs between the inland
trough and atlantic ridge to generate s-sw winds as high as
15-20 kt. Some of the soundings show the potential for higher
speeds, perhaps even approaching 25 kt at times. But since
geostrophic winds at 1000 mb are only 20-25 kt, this should keep
us shy of any advisory levels, even though seas build another
foot.

Waterspouts: light winds and favorable moisture and instability
this morning concerns us regarding the formation of
waterspouts. But so far there have not been any convergent lines
over the nearby atlantic and the SPC non-supercell tornado
parameter is showing values less than 1 unit, which are both
favorable for the waterspout formation. We continue to monitor.

Thursday through Monday: inland low pressure and offshore high
pressure will lead to a fairly typical summertime pattern with
mainly south southwest winds through the period, generally highest
near the coast during the afternoon evening from the sea breeze.

However, not expecting any small craft advisories as significant
wave heights will be 4 feet or less.
