NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
303 PM EDT MON JUL 6 2015

CORRECTION FOR FORMATTING

.DISCUSSION...A RETURN TO A MORE TYPICAL SUMMERTIME PATTERN IS
DEVELOPING AS SUBTROPICAL RIDGING BUILDS BACK OVER THE REGION.
WARMING TEMPERATURES AND AVAILABLE MOISTURE WILL ALLOW ISOLATED
TO SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING CONVECTION.

MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL BE AROUND 35 TO 40 PERCENT...
TUESDAY AND DROPPING TO 30 TO 35 PERCENT ON WEDNESDAY.

WINDS WILL GENERALLY BECOME LIGHT AFTER SUNSET RESULTING IN
POOR OVERNIGHT DISPERSION. DAYTIME WINDS WILL BE SOUTHWEST
TO WEST AT LESS THAN 10 MPH.

A 15 TO 20 KNOT NOCTURNAL LOW LEVEL JET AND SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR
MOVING INTO THE AREA SHOULD HELP LIMIT FOG DEVELOPMENT TUESDAY
MORNING...ALTHOUGH A FEW AREAS MAY HAVE BRIEF MORNING SHALLOW
GROUND FOG IN AREAS RECEIVING SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL FROM THE
PREVIOUS DAY.
