AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
200 AM EDT TUE APR 28 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE AREA TODAY. LOW PRESSURE WILL
RIDE ALONG THE GULF COAST AND UP THE ATLANTIC COAST LATE TODAY
THROUGH THURSDAY...SPREADING MOISTURE INTO OUR REGION. DRY HIGH
PRESSURE WILL RETURN FOR FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/...
EARLY THIS MORNING: SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL RIDGE IN FROM THE
NORTHWEST OVERNIGHT HOLDING DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS THE REGION. HIGH
LEVEL CLOUDS FROM STORMS CROSSING THE GULF COAST STATES WILL
LINGER CROSS THE AREA. THESE CLOUDS COULD HOLD TEMPERATURES UP A
FEW DEGREES. HOWEVER...WE EXPECT COLD AIR ADVECTION AS WINDS SHIFT
NORTH TO NORTHEAST. WILL CONTINUE WITH LOWS RANGING FROM THE LOWER
40S NORTH MIDLANDS WHERE CLOUD WILL BE THIN TO THE LOWER 50S CSRA
WHERE CLOUDS WILL BE MORE DENSE.

AFTER SUNRISE: HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE IN CONTROL OF THE REGION THROUGH
THIS AFTERNOON AS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS ALONG THE GULF COAST AND
THE UPPER LOW DIGS TOWARD THE WESTERN GULF COAST. THIS WILL PUSH
MOISTURE AND CLOUDINESS NORTHWARD INTO THE FORECAST AREA WITH
CLOUDINESS...ESPECIALLY IN THE CSRA...INCREASING THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON. A FEW SPRINKLES MAY MOVE INTO THE CSRA DURING THE LATE
AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE AREA MAINLY AROUND 70
DEGREES.

&&

.SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/...
PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN TO SPREAD ACROSS THE REGION FROM
SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST TONIGHT. BY LATE TONIGHT...ADDITIONAL
MOISTURE WILL MOVE NORTHWARD AS THE LOW REACHES THE FL PANHANDLE
RESULTING IN SHOWERS BECOMING LIKELY ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA BY
DAYBREAK WEDNESDAY. WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT THE LOW WILL
CROSS FL AND TRACK ALONG THE SC COAST NEARING THE OUTER BANKS BY
WEDNESDAY MORNING. THIS WILL PRODUCE CLOUDY SKIES AND RAIN ACROSS
THE AREA FOR WEDNESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH RAIN CHANCES
LOWERING TOWARD SUNRISE THURSDAY. A WEAK IN-SITU WEDGE MAY DEVELOP
WEDNESDAY...SO HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL STRUGGLE TO REACH 60...WITH
OVERNIGHT LOWS WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S.

&&

.LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
NO CHANGES TO THE EXTENDED FORECAST AT THIS TIME. MODELS ARE IN
GOOD AGREEMENT THROUGH THE LONG TERM WITH THE UPPER LOW CROSSING
THE REGION THURSDAY NIGHT AND HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING BACK INTO THE
REGION FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH THE WEEKEND. HAVE MADE ONLY MINOR
ADJUSTMENTS TO THE LONG TERM AS MODELS ARE IN AGREEMENT WITH THE
MOST SIGNIFICANT CHANGE BEING TO ADD ISOLATED THUNDER ON THURSDAY
AS COLD AIR ALOFT WITH THE UPPER LOW CROSSES THE AREA. ALTHOUGH
CHANCE FOR THUNDER CURRENTLY APPEARS LOW WITH HEATING POSSIBLE IN
SOME AREAS AND LINGERING MOISTURE THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL.
TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE LONG TERM WILL BE BELOW NORMAL ON
THURSDAY WARMING TO NEAR NORMAL SUNDAY AND MONDAY.

&&

.AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
VFR CONDITIONS EXPECTED THROUGH THE END OF THE TAF PERIOD.

COOL AND DRY HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE THE REGION OVERNIGHT.
LIGHT NORTHEAST WINDS EXPECTED ALTHOUGH A FEW GUSTS ABOVE 10 KNOTS
POSSIBLE THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT. GIVEN DRY AIRMASS...NO FOG IS
EXPECTED THIS MORNING. MOISTURE WILL INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH ON
TUESDAY WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF RAIN/DEVELOPING LOWER CEILINGS AT
AGS/DNL TOWARD THE END OF THE TAF PERIOD. CONFIDENCE TOO
LOW TO INCLUDE IN CURRENT ISSUANCE.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TRACKING ALONG
THE GULF COAST MAY RESULT IN WIDESPREAD RESTRICTIONS WEDNESDAY.
