FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA
AND EAST CENTRAL GEORGIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
411 AM EDT TUE AUG 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
WEAK LOW PRESSURE ALONG THE SOUTH CAROLINA COAST WILL
CONTINUE TO SLOWLY LIFT AWAY FROM THE AREA TODAY. ISOLATED
CONVECTION IS POSSIBLE IN THE EASTERN MIDLANDS THIS MORNING
BUT MOST LOCATIONS SHOULD REMAIN RAIN FREE. ANOTHER VERY
WARM DAY WITH MAX TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 90S WITH MIN
RH VALUES JUST ABOVE 30 PERCENT. SOME LOW CLOUDS AND FOG
POSSIBLE IN SPOTS BUT SHOULD BURN OFF BY MID MORNING AS
DEEP MIXING TAKES PLACE AND THE INVERSION BREAKS. WEAK LOW
LEVEL WINDS TODAY LEAD TO LOW CONFIDENCE IN TRANSPORT AND
NEAR SURFACE WINDS.
