FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LOUISVILLE KY
340 AM EDT SUN MAR 29 2015

.DISCUSSION...THE FIRST HALF OF SUNDAY WILL BE DRY WITH STEADY
SOUTH WINDS BETWEEN 10 AND 15 MPH...OCCASIONALLY GUSTING TO AROUND
25 MPH. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL DROP INTO THE LOW
AND MID 20S IN MOST SPOTS...WITH VALUES ONLY DOWN TO THE 30S NEAR
THE HOOSIER NATIONAL FOREST. DISPERSION IS EXPECTED TO BE GOOD.
THERE IS SOME CONCERN THAT WE COULD SEE A BRIEF WINDOW OF
CONDITIONS BEYOND CRITICAL THRESHOLDS ACROSS CENTRAL KENTUCKY
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON...HOWEVER VALUES WILL BE MARGINAL AND WON`T
PERSIST FOR TOO LONG AS UPPER CLOUDS MOVE OVERHEAD. RAIN CHANCES
ARRIVE ACROSS SOUTHERN INDIANA AND NORTH CENTRAL KENTUCKY BY MID
TO LATE AFTERNOON...WITH A TENTH TO A QUARTER OF AN INCH OF RAIN
ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA LATER TONIGHT.
