Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Columbia SC
214 AM EDT Sat Sep 21 2019

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure at the surface and aloft will dominate through
Monday. A weak cold front with little moisture will move through
the area Monday night.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
An east-west oriented surface ridge will extend through the
forecast area through tonight. There also will be upper
ridging. It will remain dry with light wind. The temperature
guidance has been consistent with highs mainly in the upper 80s
and lows in the lower 60s.

&&

.SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Surface high pressure located off the East Coast will allow
temperatures to warm and low-level moisture to slowly increase
early next week. Patchy morning fog will give way to partly
cloudy skies with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s and lows
in the 60s. An upper trough moving through the Northeast U.S. on
Monday should flatten an upper ridge over the Southeast U.S.
but have little impact to the Midlands and CSRA.

&&

.LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
High pressure aloft amplifies over the region the rest of next week.
Well above normal H5 heights will lead to highs in the lower to mid
90s with lows in the upper 60s to near 70. Dry weather persists
which will worsen drought conditions over portions of the
Midlands and CSRA.

&&

.AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Expect mainly VFR conditions through the 24-hour TAF period. The
exception may be a few hours of fog at AGS and OGB during the
early morning hours.

An east-west oriented surface ridge will extend through the
forecast area through tonight. There also will be upper
ridging. It will remain dry with light wind. There may be enough
moisture associated with the river valleys to support early
morning fog at AGS and OGB. We followed the GFS LAMP and
forecasted a period of IFR conditions.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...Expect mainly VFR conditions though
the outlook period, but there may be IFR fog during the early
morning hours.

&&

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