FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
528 AM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015

.DISCUSSION...

DRY AIR WILL FILTER INTO THE FORECAST AREA TODAY...AS A COLD
AIRMASS SETTLES IN ACROSS THE REGION. STRONG UPPER LEVEL LIFT
MAY PROVIDE ENOUGH LIFT TO OVERCOME THE DRY AIR AT THE SURFACE
AND ISOLATED LIGHT SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH SATURDAY AFTERNOON.
HOWEVER...THE CHANCE FOR WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS IS MINIMAL. OUTSIDE
OF SHOWER ACTIVITY TODAY...MIXING HEIGHTS WILL REMAIN ABOVE 5K FT...
AND TRANSPORT WINDS WILL BE IN THE 15 TO 20 MPH RANGE. THESE WILL
COMBINE TO CREATE VERY GOOD DISPERSION CONDITIONS. HOWEVER...GIVEN
THE DRY AIR...RH VALUES WILL DROP INTO THE 25 TO 30 PERCENT RANGE
ACROSS AREAS EAST OF INTERSTATE 65. THE DURATION APPEARS TO BE FOR
LESS THAN 4 HOURS...AND WILL HOLD OFF ON ISSUING ANY RED FLAG PRODUCTS.
