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

.DISCUSSION...Increased atmospheric moisture, moderate or greater
instability and a low pressure trough dropping in from the northwest
this afternoon may trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Some storms could produce locally heavy rainfall, frequent lightning
and/or strong downburst winds.

A tighter pressure gradient will support fair dispersion for
much of this evening into early Monday morning. Some cloudiness
and low-level mixing will inhibit fog development overnight.

Atmospheric conditions will continue to support at least
scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms Monday
through Tuesday. Surface winds Monday will be from the southwest
at 5 to 10 mph for much of the day. Transport winds will become
west-southwest by late morning at 10 to 15 mph. Relative humidities
will drop into the 45 to 50 percent range.
