Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
611 AM EST Sat Jan 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...Warmer and more moist air returning to the area
will result in clouds and climbing temperatures over the next
few days. There could also be some rain at times, but the
greatest probability will wait until Late Monday or Monday
night when a cold front moves through. The cold front will
return a chill to the area at midweek, but nothing compared to
the cold weather we`ve seen recently.
