.DISCUSSION...
Light 20-foot north-northwest of less than 10 kts prevailed across
the Four-State Region late this afternoon. Overnight relative
humidity values will recover in the 75-90 percent range, whilst
20-foot winds veer to the south with speeds of less than 5 kts.
This southerly wind both at the sfc and at the 20-foot level will
aid in warming temperatures into the lower 60s tomorrow, though
humidities will remain above critical thresholds by peak heating
/35-45 percent/. Increasing chances for rainall is expected to
move in from southwest to northeast commencing possibly as early
as tomorrow afternoon through most of Sunday afternoon. Although
overly significant amounts of rainfall is not expected with this
event, it will aid to slightly ease the drought, which is most
welcomed given the worsening drought conditions. Due to the
anticipated rainfall and ensuing southerly winds, excellent
recovery in overnight humidities is expected tomorrow night
/90-100 percent/. Further warming is expected on Sunday /lower to
upper 60s/ however humidities of 60-75 percent during peak
heating is anticipated thanks to lingering rainfall and 20-foot
southerly winds of less than 10 kts. Although a warming trend is
in store, relatively light 20-foot wind speeds and impending
rainfall keeping humidities above 25 percent will give way to
rather low fire weather concerns.

Please note that fuels are dry and drought conditions has worsened,
not to mention several counties and parishes are under a burn ban.
Outdoor equipment which produces sparks or flames is highly
discouraged.
