FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA
AND EAST CENTRAL GEORGIA FOR SOUTH CAROLINA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
147 AM EDT SAT JUL 12 2014

.DISCUSSION...A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL SLIP TOWARDS THE
COAST TODAY AND BECOME DIFFUSE. DRIER AIR BEHIND THE FRONT
WILL REDUCE...IF NOT PRECLUDE...PRECIPITATION POTENTIAL
THROUGH SUNDAY FOR MUCH OF OUR FORECAST AREA. BETTER CHANCES
WILL BE SOUTHERN AREAS WHERE BETTER AND POSSIBLE SEA BREEZE
BOUNDARY WILL EXIST.
