Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
401 AM EST Wed Feb 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure along the East Coast will provide moist onshore
flow across the region. There will be a chance for showers
across the Midlands and CSRA today. The highest coverage
should be across the CSRA and SC Piedmont. Rainfall amounts will
generally be light. Models suggest less than a tenth of inch
during the period. Mixing heights may be lower in the CSRA to
the SC Piedmont. Upper level drying will reduce the chance of
showers Thursday. Poor dispersion tonight with patchy fog possible.
