Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
430 AM EDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A weak pressure trough will linger in the forecast area through
Monday. However, upper ridging over the region will help keep
moisture shallow and limit the thunderstorm chance. It will
remain hot with heat index values peaking around 100 degrees.
Fog early this morning will be mainly confined to a few locations
near bodies of water. Fog may be more widespread early Monday
morning. Wind will be light and variable, but mainly east around
5 mph today and 5 to 10 mph Monday.
