Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
258 PM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...Showers and storms will impact southern portions of
the area the rest of this afternoon and into the early evening
before dissipating. Diurnally driven showers and storms will
persist through the rest of the week and weekend, as such given the
recent wet conditions fire weather concerns will remain low through
the period. A few instances of patchy fog cannot be ruled out in areas
that receive rainfall, but widespread fog or dense fog are not expected
at this time.
