Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Middle Tennessee
National Weather Service Nashville TN
506 AM CDT Thu Sep 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Upper ridging will remain just to our west through Friday. The
northerly wind aloft might promote just enough instability to produce
a tstm or two, otw it will be primarily dry. The aforementioned
ridge axis will shift north through the extended period with the
potential for easterly waves to effect our area. However, hurricane
Maria will prevent much in the way of moisture from moving our way.
Thus, expect warm and dry conditions but sfc humidity levels will be
on the elevated side for mid to late September.
