Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
258 PM EDT Sun May 27 2018

.DISCUSSION...Atmospheric moisture will become enhanced this
evening through Monday morning associated with the circulation
around Subtropical Storm Alberto in the east-central Gulf.
As a result, widespread showers and a few thunderstorms are
expected, with activity becoming more scattered by afternoon.

A weak nighttime inversion will develop by late this evening,
with fair dispersion expected overall due to a tightened
pressure gradient.

Fog potential for tonight: Patchy fog is possible with saturated
low-level air.

Surface winds Monday will be from the east-southeast around
5 mph after daybreak, then increase to 5 to 10 mph by afternoon.
Transport winds will be similar in direction, with speeds around
10 mph. Relative humidities will remain above 70 percent through
most of the day.
