Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
413 AM CST Tue Feb 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...Above normal conditions will exist across the area
today and Wednesday. Breezy winds will also exist during this
time. Isolated showers today, will give way to better chances for
showers and storms on Wednesday, as a cold front tries to push
into the region from the west. Patchy fog will be possible across
mainly southeast portions of the region, both this morning and
Wednesday morning.
