Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Heartland
National Weather Service Paducah KY
312 AM CST Sat Dec 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Southerly winds will increase over the Heartland region today
as High Pressure continues to move off to the east. With generally
sunny skies expected to be the rule, temperatures will rise into
the lower and middle 50s this afternoon.

Clouds will increase quickly from the southwest tonight, as an
upper level low pressure system moves quickly from northwest
Mexico into western Missouri by Sunday morning. This will bring an
increasing chance for rain showers late tonight, persisting
through the day on Sunday.

Dry weather and above normal temperatures will return on Monday,
as the low pressure area moves east of the area and weakens.

Another area of low pressure is forecast to move out of the desert
Southwest early next week, bringing another chance of rain on
Wednesday.

Looking beyond into the holiday weekend, there remains quite a bit
of uncertainty on precipitation coverage, intensity, and type of weather.
Keep posted for later forecasts on holiday travel weather early next week.
