Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Columbia SC 936 PM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

SYNOPSIS. Upper level trough remains west of the area with low level southerly flow will continue pushing moisture into the region through Saturday. The upper level trough will slowly move eastward through the weekend and move offshore early next week. This combined with a moist and unstable air mass will produce numerous showers and thunderstorms through the weekend. Temperatures will be near normal.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/. Showers and isolated thunderstorms continue across the Midlands and CSRA with activity diminishing over the last couple hours. Main concern overnight will be the potential for locally heavy rainfall especially in the Pee Dee and southern Midlands through the CSRA where several areas received a couple inches of rain this afternoon and evening. With short waves upstream rotating into the forecast area overnight . intersecting outflow boundaries and pwat values at or above 2 inches expect some new cells to develop with chances diminishing toward daybreak. With plenty of debris cloudiness over the area low temperatures will once again be in the lower to middle 70s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. Moisture will remain anomalously high once again Saturday as the upper trough approaches from the west, with its axis over the southern Appalachians by late afternoon/early evening hours. This will lead to increased upper level forcing, especially across the northern and western forecast area as a surface low moves across SC. Due to the better forcing, SPC has placed the northern half of the state in a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms with the main threat being damaging downburst winds. Additionally, the same region is in a marginal risk for rainfall exceeding flash flood criteria. Expect highs to once again be close to normal for Saturday. The best day of the next several looks to be Sunday and into Monday. Models finally push trough axis to our east by Sunday afternoon. Models differ on timing of this, but think best chances for shra/tsra will be across the eastern Midlands and especially toward the coast. Expect high temperatures to be slightly warmer on Sunday with a little more sunshine than previous days. Once again overnight lows will continue to be muggy with lows in the lower to middle 70s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. The slightly drier trend will be short lived as additional troughiness develops across the eastern portion of the country in response to larger developing ridge across the western portion of the country. Expect isolated to widely scattered convection on Monday. However by Tuesday through Friday, expect increasing moisture across the area. A surface trough will once again provide an area of low level convergence for storms to focus with upper level energy passing near the forecast area as a result of this deepening upper trough. As a result, expect unsettled conditions through the long term period. Lower than average 500mb heights will support temperatures slightly below average, in the mid to upper 80s with overnight lows around 70. Pops will be on the increase through the period with high chance/likely pops by midweek.

AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Restrictions are possible in showers and thunderstorms through the evening and again during the early morning hours from stratus and fog.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue over the region through the evening. Periods of light rain are expected through late this evening with heavier showers in the vicinity. Thunderstorm coverage is not high enough to justify mention in TAFs although impacts are possible.

MVFR/IFR ceilings are expected to develop early Saturday morning lasting through mid-morning. All TAF sites are likely to experience at least a brief period of ceiling restrictions. There is also potential for LIFR restrictions. Dense fog may develop at some sites, with the highest potential at fog prone AGS and OGB but also DNL which received heavy rainfall.

On Saturday, ceilings will lift through the morning hours. Light winds will range from 5 to 10 kts out of the SW. A moist airmass will allow scattered to numerous thunderstorms to develop in the afternoon. Whether coverage will be high enough to justify VCTS in the TAFs is not certain at this time.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK . Restrictions are possible during the extended period from mainly diurnal convection as well as from early morning fog and stratus.

CAE WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. GA . None. SC . None.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
