CENTRAL GEORGIA...CORRECTED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
321 PM EDT FRI APR 17 2015


.DISCUSSION...WEDGE CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO DISSIPATE AND WILL BE
GONE BY EARLY TONIGHT. AN UPPER LEVEL FEATURE AFFECTING MAINLY THE
SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA WILL PROMOTE
SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH POSSIBLE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS UNTIL LATE
FRIDAY EVENING. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD INTO THE AREA
SATURDAY WITH GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER EXPECTED ALTHOUGH DIURNAL
HEATING AND SEA BREEZE INTERACTION COULD LEAD TO SOME AFTERNOON
SHOWERS AND A POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORM MAINLY SOUTH. A WARM FRONT WILL
APPROACH THE AREA SUNDAY INCREASING INSTABILITY AND WITH IT COVERAGE
OF AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.

TRANSPORT WINDS WILL BE GENERALLY LIGHT OUT OF THE EAST TO SOUTHEAST
SATURDAY...SHARPLY INCREASING OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST SUNDAY WITH THE
APPROACHING FRONT. EXPECT LIGHT AND VARIABLE SURFACE TONIGHT AND
SATURDAY BECOMING SOUTHWEST ON SUNDAY AT 5 TO 10MPH WITH GUSTS IN
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS UP TO 15MPH. MIXING HEIGHTS IMPROVE TO OVER
4000 FT AGL ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...LOWERING TO AROUND 3000 FT AGL
SUNDAY WITH INCREASED MOISTURE AND EXPECTED RAINFALL. MIN RH VALUES
WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS. LIGHT WINDS WILL PROMOTE
POOR DISPERSION TONIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT.

AREAS OF FOG ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY MORNING DUE TO HIGH LOW-LEVEL
MOISTURE WITH LIGHT WIND AND MID-LEVEL DRYING.

CENTRAL GEORGIA...CORRECTED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
321 PM EDT FRI APR 17 2015


.DISCUSSION...WEDGE CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO DISSIPATE AND WILL BE
GONE BY EARLY TONIGHT. AN UPPER LEVEL FEATURE AFFECTING MAINLY THE
SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA WILL PROMOTE
SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH POSSIBLE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS UNTIL LATE
FRIDAY EVENING. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD INTO THE AREA
SATURDAY WITH GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER EXPECTED ALTHOUGH DIURNAL
HEATING AND SEA BREEZE INTERACTION COULD LEAD TO SOME AFTERNOON
SHOWERS AND A POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORM MAINLY SOUTH. A WARM FRONT WILL
APPROACH THE AREA SUNDAY INCREASING INSTABILITY AND WITH IT COVERAGE
OF AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.

TRANSPORT WINDS WILL BE GENERALLY LIGHT OUT OF THE EAST TO SOUTHEAST
SATURDAY...SHARPLY INCREASING OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST SUNDAY WITH THE
APPROACHING FRONT. EXPECT LIGHT AND VARIABLE SURFACE TONIGHT AND
SATURDAY BECOMING SOUTHWEST ON SUNDAY AT 5 TO 10MPH WITH GUSTS IN
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS UP TO 15MPH. MIXING HEIGHTS IMPROVE TO OVER
4000 FT AGL ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...LOWERING TO AROUND 3000 FT AGL
SUNDAY WITH INCREASED MOISTURE AND EXPECTED RAINFALL. MIN RH VALUES
WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS. LIGHT WINDS WILL PROMOTE
POOR DISPERSION TONIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT.

AREAS OF FOG ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY MORNING DUE TO HIGH LOW-LEVEL
MOISTURE WITH LIGHT WIND AND MID-LEVEL DRYING.

321 PM EDT FRI APR 17 2015


.DISCUSSION...WEDGE CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO DISSIPATE AND WILL BE
GONE BY EARLY TONIGHT. AN UPPER LEVEL FEATURE AFFECTING MAINLY THE
SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA WILL PROMOTE
SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH POSSIBLE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS UNTIL LATE
FRIDAY EVENING. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD INTO THE AREA
SATURDAY WITH GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER EXPECTED ALTHOUGH DIURNAL
HEATING AND SEA BREEZE INTERACTION COULD LEAD TO SOME AFTERNOON
SHOWERS AND A POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORM MAINLY SOUTH. A WARM FRONT WILL
APPROACH THE AREA SUNDAY INCREASING INSTABILITY AND WITH IT COVERAGE
OF AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.

TRANSPORT WINDS WILL BE GENERALLY LIGHT OUT OF THE EAST TO SOUTHEAST
SATURDAY...SHARPLY INCREASING OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST SUNDAY WITH THE
APPROACHING FRONT. EXPECT LIGHT AND VARIABLE SURFACE TONIGHT AND
SATURDAY BECOMING SOUTHWEST ON SUNDAY AT 5 TO 10MPH WITH GUSTS IN
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS UP TO 15MPH. MIXING HEIGHTS IMPROVE TO OVER
4000 FT AGL ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...LOWERING TO AROUND 3000 FT AGL
SUNDAY WITH INCREASED MOISTURE AND EXPECTED RAINFALL. MIN RH VALUES
WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS. LIGHT WINDS WILL PROMOTE
POOR DISPERSION TONIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT.

AREAS OF FOG ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY MORNING DUE TO HIGH LOW-LEVEL
MOISTURE WITH LIGHT WIND AND MID-LEVEL DRYING.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC
321 PM EDT FRI APR 17 2015


.DISCUSSION...WEDGE CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO DISSIPATE AND WILL BE
GONE BY EARLY TONIGHT. AN UPPER LEVEL FEATURE AFFECTING MAINLY THE
SOUTHERN AND WESTERN PART OF THE FORECAST AREA WILL PROMOTE
SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH POSSIBLE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS UNTIL LATE
FRIDAY EVENING. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL REBUILD INTO THE AREA
SATURDAY WITH GENERALLY FAIR WEATHER EXPECTED ALTHOUGH DIURNAL
HEATING AND SEA BREEZE INTERACTION COULD LEAD TO SOME AFTERNOON
SHOWERS AND A POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORM MAINLY SOUTH. A WARM FRONT WILL
APPROACH THE AREA SUNDAY INCREASING INSTABILITY AND WITH IT COVERAGE
OF AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.

TRANSPORT WINDS WILL BE GENERALLY LIGHT OUT OF THE EAST TO SOUTHEAST
SATURDAY...SHARPLY INCREASING OUT OF THE SOUTHWEST SUNDAY WITH THE
APPROACHING FRONT. EXPECT LIGHT AND VARIABLE SURFACE TONIGHT AND
SATURDAY BECOMING SOUTHWEST ON SUNDAY AT 5 TO 10MPH WITH GUSTS IN
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS UP TO 15MPH. MIXING HEIGHTS IMPROVE TO OVER
4000 FT AGL ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...LOWERING TO AROUND 3000 FT AGL
SUNDAY WITH INCREASED MOISTURE AND EXPECTED RAINFALL. MIN RH VALUES
WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS. LIGHT WINDS WILL PROMOTE
POOR DISPERSION TONIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT.

AREAS OF FOG ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY MORNING DUE TO HIGH LOW-LEVEL
MOISTURE WITH LIGHT WIND AND MID-LEVEL DRYING.
