FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
FOR NORTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA AND SOUTHEAST NORTH CAROLINA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
335 AM EDT SUN MAY 24 2015

.DISCUSSION...
BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE WILL STRENGTHEN ACROSS THE REGION. THIS
PATTERN WILL BRING AN EAST TO SOUTHEAST FLOW THAT WILL CONTINUE TO
SLOWLY INCREASE HUMIDITY LEVELS. THERE IS A SMALL RISK FOR A
SHOWER OR THUNDERSTORM BEGINNING MID WEEK.

WIND PROFILE ANALYSIS/FIRE CONTROL OVER FLAT TERRAIN IS FAVORABLE.

FOG POTENTIAL FOR TONIGHT...MODERATE.
