Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
217 PM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Much cooler and drier air has arrived with temps in the 60s
and dewpoints in the 40s. Gusty northerly winds will continue
through the evening hours, then taper off overnight. Min RH
values through Friday should be in the 30-40 percent range.
With high pressure over the area an inversion has developed
around 3,000-4,000ft and should limit mixing heights to below
those values. That coupled with light transport winds will result
in only Fair dispersion values. Moisture begins to return over
the weekend as winds become more southerly with another front
possibly arriving Sunday-Monday.

Fog potential over the next few days: Not at this time.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: Not at this time. RH values
will be low enough early this week but winds will not reach
criteria.
