000 FNUS51 KGYX 180718 FWFGYX FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME 318 AM EDT SAT APR 18 2015 .DISCUSSION... A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH TODAY BRINGING A FEW SHOWERS TO THE REGION. IT DOES LOOK UNSTABLE ENOUGH FOR SOME EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS AS WELL. THE BIGGEST CONCERN TODAY WILL BE OVER EXTREME SOUTHWEST NEW HAMPSHIRE. THAT LOCATION MAY NOT SEE THE RAIN TODAY...AND RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES COULD DROP TO AS LOW AS 30 PERCENT DURING THE AFTERNOON...WITH A DEVELOPING 10 MPH WEST WIND GUSTING TO AROUND 20 MPH AT TIMES. WHILE WE`LL FALL SHORT OF RED FLAG CRITERIA THERE...AN ELEVATED FIRE SPREAD POTENTIAL WILL EXIST. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING LIGHT WINDS AND MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES OF BETWEEN 20 AND 30 PERCENT ON SUNDAY. SLOW-MOVING LOW PRESSURE IS LIKELY TO PRODUCE A SOAKING RAIN MONDAY AND TUESDAY.
