Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
251 PM CST Tue Dec 12 2017

.DISCUSSION...
No fog development is expected tonight or Thursday
morning. High pressure will weaken south of the area while low
pressure develops north of the our region Wednesday. This will
result in a gusty south wind across our northwest while minimum
afternoon relative humidities drop to near critical thresholds.
Although Red Flag Warning criteria will likely not be met, an
Elevated Fire Danger threat will be carried in our HWO Wednesday
over the Delta region. Another dry cold front will move across the
area Thursday maintaining a dry airmass over the area this week.
Near normal temperatures are expected Wednesday but cooler than
normal temperatures return Thursday behind the cold front and
continue through Friday. Moisture will increase Saturday and
warmer than normal temperatures are expected going into Sunday.
Another cold front will move across the region Sunday and bring
the next best chance for rain to the area. Models differ on when
the rain will end as an upper level low may linger over the region
Monday.
