AND EAST CENTRAL GEORGIA FOR SOUTH CAROLINA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
301 PM EDT SUN JUL 27 2014

.DISCUSSION...THE HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST THROUGH EARLY
THIS EVENING...WITH SOME LOW-LEVEL MIXING KEEPING TEMPERATURES FROM
FALLING MUCH TONIGHT. NO FOG WILL FORM EARLY MONDAY MORNING.

AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT MONDAY WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY A TIGHTENING
PRESSURE GRADIENT...RESULTING IN HOT AND BREEZY CONDITIONS FROM LATE
MORNING THROUGH THE LATE DAY FRONTAL PASSAGE. UPPER AIR SUPPORT AND
MOISTURE WILL BE LACKING...SO THE BEST CHANCE FOR ANY SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE ACROSS THE EASTERN MIDLANDS.
