FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL SOUTH CAROLINA

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC  
322 AM EDT SAT OCT 20 2018  
   
..GUSTY WINDS AND DRY CONDITIONS EXPECTED SUNDAY
 
 
   
DISCUSSION
 
A COLD FRONTAL WILL MOVE IN TODAY WITH ISOLATED  
TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND INCREASING WESTERLY WINDS. WINDS WILL  
SHIFT NORTHWEST BEHIND THE FRONT LATER THIS EVENING, AND BE  
GUSTY THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING. ANOTHER CONCERN IS THAT RELATIVE  
HUMIDITIES WILL DROP SHARPLY ON SUNDAY, TO BETWEEN 25 AND 30  
PERCENT.  
 
FOG POTENTIAL FOR TONIGHT: MUCH DRIER AIR AND GOOD MIXING WILL  
ACCOMPANY THE FRONTAL PASSAGE AND THEREFORE KEEP FOG FROM  
FORMING.
