FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA  
AND EAST CENTRAL GEORGIA  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC  
239 AM EDT SUN MAY 31 2020  
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
A COLD FRONT IS PUSHING A DRIER AND COOLER AIRMASS INTO THE REGION.  
THIS WILL FINALLY BE ABLE TO GIVE THE REGION SEVERAL DAYS OF DRY  
CONDITIONS AND LOWER RELATIVE HUMIDITIES EARLY IN THE WEEK. A RETURN  
OF WARMER AND SLIGHTLY MOISTER AIR WILL BEGIN BY MIDWEEK AS HIGH  
PRESSURE EVENTUALLY SHIFTING OFFSHORE AND MORE SOUTHERLY WINDS  
DEVELOP. HOWEVER, WITH THE EXCESSIVE WET PERIOD MUCH OF THE  
REGION JUST HAD, FUEL MOISTURES SHOULD REMAIN HIGH FOR THE FORESEEABLE  
FUTURE.  
 
FOG POTENTIAL THIS MORNING: DRIER AIR WILL PREVENT ANY WIDESPREAD  
FOG FROM DEVELOPING.
