Synopsis
High pressure will prevail inland, while a stationary front
lingers south and east of the area early this week. Meanwhile,
low pressure is expected to pass well off the southeast coast.

A cold front will impact the region later in the week.

Near term until 6 am this morning
Benign weather conditions overnight, with a high pressure wedge
firmly in place, while a broad and elongated low is found
several hundred miles east of the local area in the atlantic.

Meanwhile, a stationary front will linger near the georgia and
florida borders. Sky conditions will range between partly cloudy
and mostly cloudy, a mix of cirriform clouds and stratocumulus.

A northeast synoptic flow within the wedge will allow for temps
to fall to the upper 60s and lower 70s, with even a few places
in the francis marion in the mid 60s.

Short term 6 am this morning through Wednesday
Monday: a cooler wedge-type pattern will persist across southeast
south carolina and much of southeast georgia behind a stalled front
positioned south of the area. Precip chances will be quite low
across southeast south carolina within a prevailing northeast sfc
wind. Further south, sfc winds could be more directly onshore,
helping moisture linger north of the front along near the altamaha
river. The effects of the wedge will also not be as strong south,
allowing temps to warm into the mid to perhaps upper 80s. Marginal
instability and weak isentropic lift suggest few to scattered
showers during the morning, then perhaps a few thunderstorms during
mid late afternoon near the altamaha river. Any convection should
wane dissipate during early overnight hours. Low temps should remain
cooler, dipping into the upper 60s north and away from the coast in
southeast south carolina to low mid 70s south and closer to the
coast in southeast georgia.

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 the region from the west.

A southwest sfc flow ahead of the front will advect deeper moisture
to the region while mid upper lvl forcing arrives late. 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. Some locations
could experience temps in the lower 90s well inland in southeast
georgia.

Wednesday: a larger mid upper lvl trough of low pressure will shift
across the midwest and toward the mid-atlantic states, helping push
a sfc cold front into the area. The pattern should support the
wettest conditions of the week as the front encounters deep moisture
characterized by pwats 2.25-2.50 inches and modest instability. At
this time, chances of severe weather remain fairly low, but can not
be ruled out during near fropa. Regardless, scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms are possible across much of the area. High
temps should warm into the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
A cold front is expected to pass offshore Wednesday night or
Thursday which will then linger in the vicinity through late week as
high pressure builds in from the west. Models vary in regards to
timing of frontal passage, with the euro the quicker solution. This
makes for a lower confidence rainfall forecast as rain chances will
hinge on frontal position. Overall, went with consensus pops of
around 40% during the daytime hours. Temperatures will be
seasonable.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
Vfr with prevail with the 06z forecast for ksav and kchs,
although there could be a period of MVFR ceilings a couple of
hours either side of daybreak as moisture gets trapped beneath
the inversion.

Extended aviation outlook: brief flight restrictions are then
possible with showers thunderstorms on Tuesday, then again on
Wednesday with showers thunderstorms along a passing cold front.

Marine
Overnight: a strong wedge of high pressure will persist inland
and to our north, while a stationary front is generally to our
south, and finally a low is to our east. The interaction between
all of these features has led to an tight surface pressure
gradient, which is causing elevated winds. We are continuing the
small craft advisory for amz350 due to wind gusts around 25 kt.

Elsewhere, gusts should be around 20 kt. Additionally, seas
have responded to these winds by building. Seas up to 6 ft are
forecasted for amz374, so we also have a small craft advisory
here.

Monday through Friday: high pressure will prevail inland while
tropical low pressure tracks north northeast, well east of coastal
waters offshore. The pattern will initially favor a tightened
pressure gradient over coastal waters Monday with north northeast
winds topping out around 15-20 kts and seas building up to 4-6 ft,
highest across offshore georgia waters. For this reason, a small
craft advisory will continue across offshore georgia waters early
Monday before the tropical low departs north northeast of the
region. Winds will weaken considerably by Tuesday, becoming onshore
and remaining 10 kts or less. By Wednesday, winds should become
more offshore ahead of a cold front approaching the from the west.

The front should shift over coastal waters Thursday, then linger in
the vicinity through late week. At this time, winds and seas are
expected to remain below small craft advisory criteria mid to late
week.

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

Tides coastal flooding
Elevated tide levels are expected this week with the approach of the
lunar perigee and new moon this Friday. Coastal flooding will be
possible during the evening high tide cycles, starting as early as
Monday, but more likely during the latter half of the week. In
addition, there is the potential for some heavy rain around the
times of high tide which could exacerbate any flooding issues.
