.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0216 AM CST Fri Dec 09 2016/
An expansive area of surface high pressure will remain across most
of the CONUS east of the Rockies as an upper trough moves eastward
off the East Coast to the western Atlantic. A cold front over the
southern FL Peninsula early this morning will continue moving
southward today, and a cold, dry post-frontal airmass will exist
over portions of the Southeast.
...PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHEAST...
RH values are forecast to become briefly lowered below 30% across
parts of northern FL and southern GA this afternoon as northerly
post-frontal winds generally less than 15 mph occur. Temperatures
will remain cool behind the front, and recent rainfall across much
of the Southeast has reduced fuel receptiveness in most areas. While
locally elevated meteorological conditions may occur across mainly
parts of northern FL/southern GA for several hours this afternoon,
marginal fuel receptiveness and cool temperatures should limit fire
