FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
252 AM CDT SUN AUG 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A FEW WEAK DISTURBANCES WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS ALLOWING FOR ISOLATED AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. STORMS
QUICKLY TAPER OFF AFTER SUNSET EACH DAY. BRIEF HEAVY RAINFALL, GUSTY
WINDS AND LIGHTNING ARE THE MAIN THREATS. SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR BUILDS
INTO THE AREA BUT AFTERNOON RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN THE
40 PERCENT RANGE. HIGH MIXING HEIGHTS EACH AFTERNOON WILL COMBINE WITH
TRANSPORT WINDS AROUND 10 MPH AND ALLOW FOR GOOD DISPERSION VALUES
THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.

PATCHY FOG IS POSSIBLE EACH NIGHT FOR AREAS THAT RECEIVE HEAVY
RAINFALL...OTHERWISE EXPECT MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AT NIGHT.

THE EXTENDED FORECAST IS RATHER UNCERTAIN AND THERE IS LOW CONFIDENCE
IN THE FORECAST AS WE GO THROUGH THE WEEK. THIS IS ALL TIED TO THE
POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF A TROPICAL SYSTEM IN THE GULF BUT MODEL
CONSISTENCY HAS BEEN VERY POOR. STAY TUNED AS WE WAIT FOR MODELS TO
COME INTO BETTER AGREEMENT.
