FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
155 PM CST WED DEC 7 2016

.DISCUSSION...

LOW CLOUDS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON
AND INTO THE EVENING HOURS ACROSS MUCH OF NORTHERN ALABAMA. A
STRONG ARCTIC FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH DURING THE LATE EVENING
HOURS, WITH ISOLATED LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS POSSIBLE ALONG THE FRONT,
THOUGH ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE VERY LIGHT. NE WINDS WILL SHIFT TO
A MORE NW DIRECTION ON THURSDAY AND MAY BE GUSTY IN THE HIGHER
OF EAST AL. COLD AND DRY AIR WILL FILTER IN THURSDAY NIGHT, WITH
TEMPERATURES DROPPING INTO THE TEENS TO LOWER 20S. TEMPERATURES
ARE NOT EXPECTED TO WARM MUCH DURING THE DAY ON FRIDAY, WITH
AFTERNOON HIGHS STRUGGLING TO RISE ABOVE FREEZING.

A GRADUAL WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN ON SATURDAY, AS SOUTHERLY
FLOW RETURNS AHEAD OF OUR NEXT SYSTEM. THE NEXT CHANCE FOR
WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS WILL COME BETWEEN SUNDAY AND MONDAY
AS ANOTHER FRONTAL SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE REGION FROM THE WEST.
CONFIDENCE IS LOW AS TO THE TIMING AND COVERAGE OF THE RAINFALL,
AS MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS INCONSISTENT.
