Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
431 AM CST Sat Feb 25 2017

.DISCUSSION... A drier airmass will be over the ArkLaMiss today.
Afternoon RH`s in the mid 20% range combined with moderate winds
will make result in a higher fire weather threat that we`ve seen
in a few days, however a high fuel moisture content and cool
temperatures will limit the threat. Fire weather conditions will
slightly improve on Sunday as the dry air mass remains over the
region. Moisture will begin to increase late Sunday. No
significant development of fog is expected over the weekend.
