Fire Weather Planning Forecast
for Northeast South Carolina and Southeast North Carolina
National Weather Service Wilmington NC
333 AM EDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure to our north will progress east through the rest
of the week. This will allow for warmer and less dry air to move in
over the weekend. Minor rain chances are expected Sunday as a weak
upper disturbance passes well to our north.

Wind profile analysis/fire control over flat terrain is Favorable.

Fog potential for tonight...Moderate...mainly coastal counties.
