Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
259 PM EDT Sun Apr 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...A well-organized low pressure system will slowly move
east across the forecast area this evening through Monday before
exiting off the coast Monday night. Ahead of this, instability
combined with upper-level energy could help trigger strong
thunderstorms through this evening. The highest risk area is
from the Central Savannah River Area across to the southern and
eastern Midlands. Otherwise, periods of rain, heavy at times,
will occur through the nighttime and during the daytime Monday.

The pressure gradient will be tight enough with the approaching
low pressure to provide fair dispersion during the evening and
into Monday morning. Cloudiness and low-level mixing will inhibit
all but light fog associated with rainfall.

Surface winds Monday will be variable especially across the Central
Savannah River Area nearest to the low pressure center. Elsewhere,
winds from the north-northeast at 5 to 10 mph are expected. Transport
winds will be mostly north at 10 to 15 mph. Relative humidities will
remain well above 60 percent through the daytime.
