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

.DISCUSSION...

CLOUDY, COOL, AND DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TODAY WITH GENERALLY
LIGHT WINDS. DUE TO THE LOW MIXING HEIGHTS AND LIGHT WINDS, GENERALLY
POOR DISPERSION IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE DAY.

AN ARCTIC FRONT IS THEN FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN ALABAMA
LATE TONIGHT BRINGING THE POSSIBILITY OF LIGHT RAIN AND COLD
TEMPERATURES. NORTHWEST WINDS WILL GRADUALLY INCREASE OVERNIGHT INTO
THURSDAY. THE WINDS SHOULD INCREASE TO 10-15 MPH AND GUST UP TO 20
MPH BY LATE THURSDAY MORNING, WITH THE HIGHEST WINDS OVER THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF NORTHWEST ALABAMA. IN ADDITION, DAYTIME HIGH
TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE LOW 40S ON THURSDAY WITH CLOUD COVER
DECREASING THROUGH THE DAY. CLEAR AND COLD CONDITIONS WILL THEN
PREVAIL ON THURSDAY NIGHT WITH OVERNIGHT LOWS IN THE UPPER TEENS TO
LOW 20S.

COLD AND DRY WEATHER SHOULD CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY WITH DIMINISHED
WINDS. HOWEVER, PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO RETURN ON SUNDAY AND
CONTINUING THROUGH MONDAY AS ANOTHER FRONTAL SYSTEM AFFECTS NORTHERN
ALABAMA.

GIVEN THE RECOVERING FUEL MOISTURE AND RAINFALL OVER THE PREVIOUS
FEW DAYS, NOT EXPECTING ANY FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS AT THIS TIME.
HOWEVER, IF THERE ARE ANY FIRE STARTS, THE WINDS WILL BE HIGHEST ON
THURSDAY AFTER THE ARCTIC FRONT ARRIVES.
