The National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch for South Carolina beginning Saturday.

Weather can play a big role in the spread of wildfire. Residents should not burn yard debris until after the next rainfall. 

The watch is being issued because of low humidity, high winds and relatively high temperatures. Tomorrow's humidity in the Palmetto State is expected to fall to 25 to 30%.

Winds are expected to reach 20 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 30 mph.

Check out any active fires across the state in the interactive map below.
