Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
321 PM CDT Mon May 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
The rather wet pattern is expected to continue through most of
the upcoming week with temperatures remaining a little cooler than
average and moisture levels a little higher than normal. A bit
of patchy fog is possible each morning for the next several mornings
but confidence in any dense fog is not great and most of any fog
should disperse before 9 am. Also...winds will be light through
much of the upcoming week and may keep transport winds below
thresholds needed for burning on quite a few days.
