All right, everyone, who is ready for a forecast? I am! Let’s go to South Carolina!
At 1056PM, ET, Columbia was reporting a temperature of 46 degrees with mostly clear skies, but visibility obscured by smoke. The southern Appalachians have stayed dry since Hurricane Matthew, and as a result, wildfires have cropped up in the region, with Columbia down wind of the conflagration, leading to the smoke in the area.
A weak trough off the coast will shift north and further away from the Carolinas, while surface high pressure builds over the east coast. While winds will die down from the blazes, any smoke already settled into the region can be anticipated to linger across the Palmetto State right through Wednesday.
