Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Charleston SC 112 PM EDT Thu Sep 16 2021

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure will prevail inland while low pressure passes well offshore through late week. High pressure is expected to expand into the region this weekend into early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. High pressure will extend south into the region today, while tropical low pressure slowly lifts northward well off the Carolina coast. An axis of deep moisture encompasses much of the area with precipitable water exceeding 2 inches. Radar imagery late this morning shows mainly just showers impacting southeast Georgia. This area will continue to be the focus for additional activity through the day, with lesser coverage expected further north into South Carolina. Periods of heavier rainfall are possible which could result in minor flooding especially in low-lying and urban areas. Temperatures will be tricky with cloud cover and rain likely keeping highs limited to the upper 70s across interior Georgia. Further north in the Charleston tri- county where there should be more peaks of sunshine, temperatures should get into the low to mid 80s.

Tonight: It's difficult to know what the radar will look like by the evening hours, but current thinking is that we will still see activity centered down along the Georgia coast. This activity is then expected to move off the coast and pass eastward through the overnight. Still can't rule out an isolated to scattered shower just about anywhere overnight, but the expectation is that all the significant rainfall will end by the evening hours. Otherwise, it should still feel like summer with lows only falling into the low 70s in most areas.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Surface high pressure will sit inland as low pressure in the Atlantic moves further away from the area. Moisture associated with troughing to the west will shift into the region and then linger. PWATs will be elevated for much of the weekend and isolated to scattered showers will be possible. Although, SE GA will likely see more rain than SE SC each day. Most of the precipitation activity should be during the afternoon/evening hours across land areas. Over the waters, showers could develop and persist through the overnight. With limited instability, only expect to see isolated thunderstorms at best. Therefore, the severe weather threat is low. Outside of any precip, there will be a chance for fog and low stratus in the mornings but have left out any mention in the forecast for now. Otherwise, high temperatures will be in the 80s with lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Even with high pressure gradually building into the region, moisture will remain elevated as there are some hints of a coastal trough developing across the area. Shortwave energy and decent PWATs will keep isolated to scattered showers in the forecast through mid-week. Most precip should be in the afternoon/evenings over land areas while the coastal waters could see showers overnight. Also, decent instability will support isolated thunderstorms each day as well. Otherwise, high temperatures will be in the 80s with lows in the mid 60s to mid 70s.

AVIATION /17Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. KSAV: Periods of showers with perhaps an isolated thunderstorm are possible through the afternoon, which will bring a threat for lower ceilings and visibilities. Rain coverage should decrease this evening. Late tonight/after midnight some guidance is hinting at some stratus developing. Highest probabilities appear to be west of the terminal, so will opt for a scattered MVFR layer for now.

KJZI and KCHS: Mainly VFR will prevail. There could be brief reductions in convection this afternoon, but the chances of occurrence are too low to include in the TAF, so will amend if necessary.

Extended Aviation Outlook: Brief flight restrictions possible in early morning fog/stratus late week and afternoon/evening showers each day.

MARINE. Today through tonight: A developing area of low pressure will stay east of the local waters as it lifts northward toward the vicinity of the North Carolina Outer Banks. Northeasterly to easterly flow will prevail into the evening, with speeds less than 15 knots. Overnight, winds will diminish to around 5 knots. Seas will mostly be 2-3 feet today, perhaps as high as 4 feet in the outer Georgia waters. Overnight, seas in the 2-4 ft range will be more common across all waters.

Friday through Tuesday: Weak high pressure will persist inland as low pressure in Atlantic moves away from the region this weekend. Easterly winds at 5 to 10 knots will generally prevail through the weekend. Then early next week, high pressure will build into the region and a coastal trough could develop, enhancing the pressure gradient. Therefore, could see an uptick in winds and seas.

Rip Currents: As tropical low pressure tracks offshore, resulting swell could produce an elevated risk of rip currents late week into this weekend.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. High tide could approach 7 ft MLLW in Charleston Harbor with the late afternoon (~5:30 pm) high tide. Astronomical tide levels are on the rise as we approach the upcoming full moon and peak astronomical tide is 6.28 ft MLLW with the late afternoon high tide. Weak northeast to east flow will persist through the time of high tide, which will keep tidal departures elevated. Tidal departures continue to run around 0.70 ft and this should persist through the afternoon high tide. With that in mind, the peak tide will likely come very close to the minor flood category and a Coastal Flood Advisory could be needed.
