Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Columbia SC 113 AM EDT Tue Sep 22 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will continue to dominate the region, providing dry and cool conditions through the middle of the week. Moisture will begin returning to the area Wednesday night with low chances of rain returning for Thursday into next weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Continued dry with below normal temps. An upper level low to our east and upper ridge to our west providing a dry NW flow aloft for our forecast area (FA). An elongated axis of cool dry Canadian surface high pressure remains over the east coast. Hurricane Teddy will move north and remain offshore the NE coast. Decreasing pressure gradient over our FA will result in less wind than in recent days, with weak high center building into our FA tonight. Radiational cooling conditions tonight may be inhibited by some increasing high level cloudiness coming in from the west.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Surface high pressure will remain over The Midlands and CSRA Wednesday and provide dry weather with below normal temperatures.

The surface high moves offshore on Thursday which allows for temperatures to warm to near normal for late September. Moisture will begin to increase with a southwest flow off the Gulf of Mexico on the backside of the surface high. A weak shortwave trough will pick up the remnants of Tropical Storm Beta and start moving it across The Deep South. It will take time for the atmosphere to moisten up, therefore dry conditions will persist into Thursday for the Eastern Midlands with a chance of showers in the late afternoon for the Western Midlands and CSRA.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. A shortwave trough will bring the remnants of Tropical Storm Beta across The Midlands and CSRA Thursday Night through Saturday. The forecast precipitation amounts from the passage of this system should be generally less than one half inch.

The region should be a weak westerly flow aloft behind the shortwave trough and Beta remnants Sunday through Monday. Forecast models differ on the evolution of a deep upper trough over the Eastern U.S. just beyond the seven day forecast. Temperatures should be near normal with a chance of showers.

AVIATION /05Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. VFR. Dry surface high pressure will build into our region through tonight.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK . VFR through mid week. Moisture return expected late week.

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

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.
