Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Columbia SC 130 PM EST Sat Dec 7 2019

SYNOPSIS. Dry high pressure will continue to build into the region tonight. The high will shift eastward and a warm front will develop along the Southeast Coast Sunday. The warm front will lift northward and move through the forecast area Monday. An approaching cold front will move through the region Tuesday night.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. This afternoon . Mostly clear skies allowing for warming temperatures despite northeasterly winds as temperatures push through the 60s. High pressure will continue to build into the region tonight with mostly clear skies expected. Model soundings show some moisture around 6kft to 9kft that may result in some clouds overnight in the CSRA but confidence is low so will continue the mostly clear skies.

A low level jet around 25 knots is forecast overnight which will keep the boundary layer mixed and prevent ideal radiational cooling across the central Midlands and CSRA. Further north the surface high center will be closer to that area and winds may become light to calm and support stronger cooling. Expect a gradient in low temperatures from the lower 30s north to around 40 in the CSRA.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Onshore flow deepens a "wedge" of cooler air across The Midlands and CSRA on Sunday with highs in the 50s. In addition clouds will increase as the flow aloft becomes southwesterly and advects moisture into the region from the Gulf of Mexico. Moisture continues to deepen Sunday Night through Monday with a chance of showers. The "wedge" of cooler air breaks by Monday with much warmer high temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. A cold front slowly approaches the region on Tuesday through Wednesday and should push to the Southeast U.S. coast by Wednesday Night. Expect scattered to at most numerous showers with this frontal passage. Rainfall amounts should remain below one half inch total with this system. High pressure builds into The Midlands and CSRA for Thursday with a much cooler and drier airmass.

Forecast models bring an upper trough into the Lower Mississippi River Valley next Friday with a surface low pressure system developing in The Gulf of Mexico. Kept a chance of showers in the forecast for Friday.

AVIATION /18Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Expect VFR conditions through the 24-hour TAF period.

Dry high pressure will ridge into the area through tonight. Skies have cleared from north to south as drier air filters into the area on northeasterly winds around 5 to 10 knots. A low level jet around 25 knots expected overnight should preclude any fog formation. Winds will pick up again on Sunday after 14z from the northeast around 5 to 10 knots.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK . Moisture will increase ahead of a warm front late Sunday. The front will likely bring widespread IFR stratus and fog Sunday night into Monday. Breezy conditions may develop in the wake of the warm front Monday. It should remain breezy ahead of a cold front Tuesday. Showers and associated restrictions may occur Sunday night through Tuesday. The showers may be most widespread along the cold front Tuesday night.

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

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
