Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central South Carolina
and East Central Georgia
National Weather Service Columbia SC
231 PM EDT Thu May 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...An active weather pattern continues with abundant
moisture from continued moist southerly flow around high pressure
offshore. This moisture will interact with upper level troughs
rotating up around a low pressure center to our west in Georgia, and
a stalled old frontal boundary lying through the Midlands/CSRA.
Daytime heating in this situation will produce afternoon showers and
thunderstorms through the end of the week.

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