Synopsis
A cold front currently across the area will move offshore with
dry weather and more seasonable temperatures tonight through
Friday. The next system to impact the region will occur late
this weekend into early next week.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
A few showers moving through the northern midlands early this
evening associated with post frontal trough. Cold front has
moved east of the midlands at 21z. Drier air filtering into the
west midlands and csra. Showers should remain mainly isolated
north of cae to the pee dee early this evening then clearing
with cold advection dominating overnight.

Winds will remain strong and gusty through this evening then
diminish with sunset. As the drier air also moves in the clouds
will dissipate with mostly clear skies overnight. Low
temperatures mainly in the mid 40s.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through Friday
Fair and dry weather expected Thursday and Friday under strong high
pressure and northwesterly flow aloft. Skies will be mostly clear
both days with a very dry airmass in place with pwat values around a
half inch with large subsidence noted on the forecast soundings
around 700mb.

The main forecast challenge will be temperatures as we are expecting
the coolest low temperatures of the season to close the work week.

Guidance has been trending cooler with overnight lows. Highs are
expected be near to slightly below normal in the upper 60s to lower
70s. Overnight lows will also be near to slightly below normal in
the 40s. A warm front extending across southern ga into the low
country of sc will lift northward across the area through
daybreak. Isentropic lift will keep mainly light rain across
much of the area this morning. Heavy rain is expected to remain
mainly southeast of the area... In the coastal plain where
convergence (weak sfc low) and isentropic lift will be
maximized.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
Active weather returns during the extended forecast period with a
series of waves fronts impacting the area a few days apart.

Medium range models are in fair agreement (except for some slight
timing differences) with the overall pattern. There is one new
wrinkle to the active weather expected over the weekend, and that is
the potential development of a tropical system in the western gulf
of mexico (nhc has 50% chance of development within 5 days). Despite
timing differences (ecwmf a bit slower than gfs), a weak upper
trough moving east along the gulf coast states becomes energized
Friday night into Saturday as it phases with a northern stream
trough moving across the ohio valley. This will bring another chance
for potentially significant rainfall to the region as pwat values
rise back up to around 1.7 inches, nearly 175% of normal, with
strong moisture advection in deep easterly flow off the atlantic.

This system quickly shifts east of the area Saturday night.

A deep trough will dive into the center part of the country on
Sunday with a strong low pressure system developing over the dakotas
before lifting northeastward into the great lakes region on Monday.

Downstream upper ridging will occur over the southeastern states
providing lower chances of rain Sun Mon although low level .

Moisture will remain high. Another cold front will push into the
area on Tuesday with rain chances increasing ahead of it Monday
night and Tuesday, followed by more cool and dry weather on
Wednesday. Temperatures this period will be near to slightly above
normal for highs and well above normal for lows.

Aviation 22z Wednesday through Monday
Vfr conditions expected to dominate the TAF period.

Cold front currently across the terminals will move offshore
late this afternoon. Westerly winds around 15 knots with gusts
to 25 knots will occur through 17 01z then subside to west-
northwesterly between 5 and 10 knots through the end of the
period. With steady winds and drier air over the region tonight
fog is not expected.

Extended aviation outlook... Chance of rain and associated
restrictions Saturday night through Monday as low pressure
moves along the gulf coast and pushes moisture into the area.

Cae watches warnings advisories
Ga... None.

Sc... None.
