FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA
AND EAST CENTRAL GEORGIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
253 PM EDT SUN JUL 5 2015

.DISCUSSION...AN UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL KICK OUT OF TN INTO THE OHIO
VALLEY TONIGHT AND MONDAY...BRINGING IN WARMER AND MORE UNSTABLE
AIR INTO OUR REGION. AS WE WILL BE ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE UPPER
LOW...AMPLE ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE WILL BE PULLED NORTHWARD FROM THE
GULF OF MEXICO THROUGH THE PERIOD.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH AFTERNOON WILL
DEPEND IN PART UPON ENOUGH HEATING TO DESTABILIZE THE ATMOSPHERE
AND TIMING OF ANY SUPPORTING UPPER LEVEL TROUGHS SPINNING AROUND
THE LOW. MORE INSTABILITY TOGETHER WITH UPPER LEVEL ENERGY
IS EXPECTED TO BRING INCREASED ACTIVITY THROUGH MONDAY...WITH
DEVELOPMENT CHANCES DECREASING SOMEWHAT ON TUESDAY.

MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL BE AROUND 40-45 PERCENT MONDAY...
DROPPING SLIGHTLY TO AROUND 35 PERCENT TUESDAY.

DAYTIME WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE FROM THE SOUTHWEST AT 10 TO
15 MPH NEAR THE SURFACE AND IN THE MIXING LAYER MONDAY...SHIFTING
SOUTHWEST TO WEST AT 8 TO 10 MPH ON TUESDAY. OVERNIGHT DISPERSION
SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING IS EXPECTED TO BE GENERALLY FAIR
WITH A LIGHT BREEZE EXCEPT IN ISOLATED AREAS SHELTERED BY TERRAIN.
THE GRADIENT WILL RELAX MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY MORNING WITH
GENERALLY POOR DISPERSION AND A CHANCE FOR PATCHY AREAS OF FOG IN
LOW-LYING AREAS NEAR BODIES OF WATER.
