...FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

Relative humidity values are expected to drop into the 20 to 25
percent range across much of southeast South Carolina and into
Chatham County of Georgia this afternoon into the early evening.
Prior to the development of the sea breeze, mainly west winds
will become gusty, peaking around 20 mph.

The combination of the low relative humidity, the somewhat
elevated winds, and marginal fuel moisture will result in an
increased fire danger today across much of southeast South
Carolina and Chatham County, Georgia. This includes locations such
as the Francis Marion National Forest, the Ace Basin and the
Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, as well as communities in and
near Charleston, Summerville, Walterboro, Beaufort and Savannah.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Please refer to your local burn permitting authorities on whether
you can burn. If you do, you are advised to use extreme caution.
