Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western Maine and New Hampshire
National Weather Service Gray ME
305 PM EDT Wed Aug 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will continue to approach the region...cresting
overhead on Thursday.  This will bring seasonable temperatures...
afternoon relative humidity values as low as 30 percent...and
northwesterly winds of 10-20 mph.  A frontal system will approach
the region on Friday and Friday night...with a good potential for a
wetting rain across the region before a cold front sweeps through the
area on Saturday. Behind this system...high pressure will build back
into the region for Sunday and Monday...but dewpoints are not
expected to fall significantly...resulting in elevated relative
humidity values.
