Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Columbia SC 133 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure, drier conditions, and near normal temperatures are expected through Thursday. Unsettled conditions are possible by late in the week into the weekend as moisture moves in from the Atlantic. Well above normal temperatures are expected by Sunday into early next week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
High pressure and upper level ridging remain in control of the forecast area with some vertically limited cumulus developing.
CHS morning sounding along with forecast sounding show a substantial subsidence inversion across the area which will keep the cumulus development suppressed through the afternoon. With sunset expect the cumulus to dissipate and some cirrus to persist over the region tonight. With the scattered nature of the clouds overnight expect good radiational cooling however this will be somewhat offset by winds which will remain 5 to 10 mph overnight. High temperatures this afternoon remain on track for the low 90s with overnight lows in the mid 60s.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/
Benign weather expected to continue in the short term with high pressure ridging into the area. While easterly flow may lead to a bit of a moisture increase tomorrow, below normal PWAT values still expected leading to continued dry weather. A lingering pressure gradient will keep winds a bit breezy out of the east each day.
Otherwise, temperatures will be right around seasonal average with highs in the low 90s and lows in the mid to upper 60s.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
Main concern for the long term will be the heat as we are expected to enter the hottest stretch of the year so far. NAEFS indicate that by Saturday into Sunday with upper ridging maintaining over the area, 850mb temperatures will climb to above the 90th percentile and remain into early next week. Blended guidance generally favors high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s, although probabilities of highs exceeding 100F are between 20 to 30 percent, so it is not out of the question that one of the days Sun through Tues sees triple digit temperatures. A bit of uncertainty as to the potential of a moisture increase which may limit highs through cloudiness and shower and storm coverage but regardless, potential for moderate to major heat risk Sunday into early next week (more info: wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/heatrisk).

Moisture is expected to increase late this week into the weekend as an inverted trough pushes towards the coast of SC/GA. The National Hurricane Center indicated this system has a low chance (20%) of tropical development but it will lead to a plume of moisture moving into the southeastern US. Ensembles do indicate that the strongest push of moisture should remain to the south of the area but with increasing probabilities of PWATs greater than an inch and a half, expect chances for diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms, mainly favoring the southeast through the weekend. By early next week, high probability (>80%) of PWATs greater than an inch and a half with scattered thunderstorms developing across the area, again expected to be diurnally driven.

AVIATION /16Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
VFR Conditions expected through the period.

High pressure remains in control of the region with drier than normal air across the area. Scattered cumulus have developed and will continue to develop through the afternoon however with a subsidence inversion and plenty of dry air aloft vertical development will be limited. Cumulus will dissipate this evening with some cirrus remaining over the region overnight.
Late Wednesday morning cumulus will once again begin developing with the subsidence inversion again limiting development. Winds will be easterly through the period with gusts around 17 knots into this evening before diminishing to around 8 knots then once again become gusty from 19/15z through the end of the period.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...Increasing potential for showers and thunderstorms creating brief restrictions Friday and Saturday.

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