NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
406 AM EDT MON MAY 25 2015

.DISCUSSION...

ALLOWING ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP
MID AND LATE WEEK. THE RIDGE WILL BUILD BACK ACROSS THE EASTERN
CAROLINAS FOR THE WEEKEND...LESSENING THE RISK FOR RAINFALL AND
INCREASING THE HEAT.

WIND PROFILE ANALYSIS/FIRE CONTROL OVER FLAT TERRAIN IS UNFAVORABLE...
TYPE 1-E. MAXIMUM WIND NEAR 1500 FT AGL...DIRECTION SE...SPEED 15 MPH.

FOG POTENTIAL FOR TONIGHT...LOW.
