FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA
AND EAST CENTRAL GEORGIA FOR SOUTH CAROLINA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
503 AM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...WEAK HIGH PRESSURE IS BUILDING INTO THE REGION
AND PROVIDING COOLER AND DRIER AIR TODAY AND TONIGHT. NO FOG
FORMATION EXPECTED THROUGH THE PERIOD. MOISTURE WILL RETURN
TO THE REGION LATE IN THE WEEK AND INTO THE WEEKEND...ALLOWING
FOR A GREATER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

TRANSPORT WILL BE STRONGER THIS MORNING WITH A LOW LEVEL JET...
BUT THE WINDS WILL DIMINISH DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS. EXPECT
POOR DISPERSION OVERNIGHT.
