FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE STATE COLLEGE PA
545 AM EDT WED APR 16 2014

.DISCUSSION...

FULLY WETTENED FINE FUELS WILL DRY OUT TODAY THANKS TO THE
NORTHERLY WIND AND PLENTIFUL SUNSHINE. BUT MOISTURES WILL LIKELY
REMAIN ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS. THE WINDS WILL SLACKEN TONIGHT BUT
RETURN FROM THE SOUTH AND GET GUSTY.

MIN RH/S WILL DROP INTO THE 20S BOTH TODAY AND THURSDAY.
THUS...FUEL MOISTURE WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE IN WHETHER THERE IS
A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER DAY. THIS POSSIBILITY IS NOT ENOUGH TO
PROMPT A WATCH OF RED FLAG WARNING AT THIS POINT. MORE
COORDINATION WITH FIRE MANAGERS IS NECESSARY TO TAKE THAT STEP.
THINGS ARE ALSO STARTING TO GREEN UP - ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTH.
