FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
500 AM CDT WED MAY 25 2016

.DISCUSSION...
WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS NORTHERN AL WILL CONTINUE TO BE
DOMINATED BY AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE, WHICH
WILL BUILD NORTHWARD INTO THE GULF COAST REGION BY THURSDAY.
THIS WILL MAINTAIN THE WARM AND DRY WEATHER PATTERN CURRENTLY
IN PLACE, WITH SHOWER/THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY CONCENTRATED TO THE
NORTH/WEST OF THE REGION. AFTERNOON RH VALUES WILL FALL INTO THE
35-40% RANGE BOTH TODAY AND THURSDAY AS TEMPS RISE INTO THE
UPPER 80S/LOWER 90S. SMOKE DISPERSION WILL BE GOOD BOTH DAYS,
WITH MIXING HEIGHTS IN THE 6-7 KFT RANGE AND TRANSPORT WINDS OF
15-20 MPH. THE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE WILL WEAKEN LATE THIS WEEK,
ALLOWING FOR A GRADUAL INCREASE IN SHOWERS/STORMS BEGINNING
FRIDAY. HOWEVER, THE REGION MAY EXPERIENCE DRIER CONDITIONS ONCE
AGAIN EARLY NEXT WEEK DUE TO IMPACTS FROM AN AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN U.S.
