FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
440 AM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

.DISCUSSION...
ANOTHER VERY WARM AND RELATIVELY HUMID DAY IS EXPECTED TODAY...WITH
WEST WINDS INCREASING MODESTLY AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT.
THE WARM AIR WILL CREATE HIGH MIXING HEIGHTS AND GOOD TO VERY GOOD
DISPERSION. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FRONT
WILL ARRIVE IN NORTHWEST ALABAMA THIS AFTERNOON AND SWEEP ACROSS THE
AREA BY MIDNIGHT. RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE THAT HEAVY
AND DURATIONS WILL BE RELATIVELY SHORT. AS THE FRONT ARRIVES...WINDS
WILL SHIFT TO THE NORTH...BRINGING IN MARKEDLY COOLER AND DRIER AIR.
DRY WEATHER WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE END OF THE WORK WEEK.
