Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
255 PM EDT Tue May 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...The combination of a very moist atmosphere, a nearly
stationary frontal boundary, and support from upper-level energy
will aid in the development of widespread showers through this evening.
Thunderstorms will also be possible, especially closer to the coastal
plain where the atmosphere is most unstable.

Activity will resume Wednesday during the day and into the evening,
before the front finally moves east and drier air begins to move in.

Dispersion will become poor by late this evening and continue through
early Wednesday morning. Areas of generally light fog will develop
with nighttime cooling and abundant low-level moisture.

Surface winds Wednesday will be from the south-southwest at 5 to
10 mph after daybreak, then increase to 10 to 15 mph by afternoon.
Transport winds will be similar in direction around 15 mph.
Relative humidities will remain above 70 percent for most of the day.
