Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
218 PM CDT Tue Aug 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Showers and storms will increase in coverage ahead of an
approaching cold front this evening and tonight, ending
from North to South by tomorrow afternoon. Winds will turn
more Northwesterly tomorrow as well, ushering in drier
dewpoint temperatures (and as a result, lower RH values).

RH values tomorrow will fall into the middle 50s, and down
into the lower 40s for Thursday afternoon, with Good dispersion
expected by this time.

Fog potential over the next few days: Fog is possible in valley
locations and near bodies of water on both Wednesday and Thursday
mornings. Areas that receive rainfall tonight will be at greater risk
for fog both days.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None.
