and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
239 PM EST Mon Feb 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will move offshore Tuesday producing
low level moisture advection into the region. Onshore flow will
lead to isentropic lift, increasing cloud cover and possibly light
rain Tuesday evening. Surface winds will be easterly through the
day around 5 mph. Wednesday, scattered showers will continue with
the best coverage across the northern Midlands and the Upstate. A
weak wedge may develop across the northern forecast area.
