Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
236 PM EDT Wed May 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...High pressure centered well off the East Coast will
continue to circulate very moist air northward through the end of
the week. The moisture, combined with daytime heating, will keep
an active weather pattern in place with scattered to numerous
afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. A weak surface
front will also move into the area Thursday and Friday, enhancing
convection. Light southerly wind this evening will shift around to
the north and then east by Thursday and become slightly breezy with
the front. Southeast winds are expected on Friday.

Fog potential for tonight and Thursday night: There will be patchy
late night and early morning fog, mainly in areas of recent rain
and near river valleys.
