FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
301 AM CDT THU MAY 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DRY AND COOLER WEATHER IS EXPECTED TODAY WITH WINDS INCREASING THROUGH
THE MORNING HOURS. BY LATE MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON, STRONG NW WINDS
WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS MUCH OF THE TN VALLEY. 20-FOOT WIND SPEEDS OF
10-15 MPH WITH GUSTS UPWARDS OF 25 MPH ARE EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE
AREA. PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST ALABAMA MAY SEE 20-FOOT GUSTS UPWARDS OF
30 MPH THIS AFTERNOON. THESE INCREASED WINDS MAY ALLOW FOR MORE DRIER
AIR TO MIX DOWN TO THE SURFACE TODAY AND RH VALUES WILL RANGE FROM
30 TO 35 PERCENT.

DRY WEATHER IS THEN EXPECTED FOR FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY AS A RIDGE
BUILDS OVER THE REGION. A GRADUAL WARMING OF TEMPS AND INCREASING
MOISTURE IS FORECAST THROUGH THIS PERIOD. BY EARLY NEXT WEEK WE
RETURN TO A MORE SOUTHERLY FLOW, ALLOWING FOR MOISTURE TO RETURN.
A SERIES OF DISTURBANCES WILL MOVE THROUGH TO OUR NORTH AND RESULT
IN THUNDERSTORM CHANCES EACH DAY FROM TUESDAY THROUGH THE LATTER
HALF OF THE WEEK.
