FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR MIDDLE TENNESSEE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NASHVILLE TN
230 PM CDT SAT MAR 28 2015

...MARGINAL FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON AND AGAIN ON SUNDAY...

.DISCUSSION...LOW HUMIDITY FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS WILL LEAD TO
A MARGINAL FIRE DANGER THIS AFTERNOON AND AGAIN TOMORROW. LOWEST
HUMIDITY READINGS OF 20 TO 30 PERCENT WILL BE COMMON IN MANY AREAS
BOTH DAY. YOU CAN EXPECT NORTH WINDS NEAR 10 KTS TODAY, BECOMING
SOUTH NEAR 10 KTS, AND BIT GUSTY ON SUNDAY.

SEVERAL COLD FRONTS WILL MOVE THROUGH DURING THE FIRST HALF OF
NEXT WEEK, AND BRING A PERIOD OF SHOWERS EACH TIME...AND PERHAPS A
FEW THUNDERSTORMS AS WELL. A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
WILL CONTINUE INTO LATE WEEK AS SOUTHERLY FLOW BRINGS AN INCREASE
IN TEMPERATURES AND ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE.
