Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
317 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...Shower and thunderstorm chances will be relatively
high for the next several days as a weak frontal boundary stalls
in the vicinity. Expect moisture to be high and winds away from
any thunderstorms relatively light. There may be a few patches of
fog tonight, mainly in the southeastern MS...but even there
widespread dense fog does not appear likely.
