Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
218 PM CDT Mon May 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A series of weak upper level disturbances will bring scattered
to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms tonight into early
Tuesday.  The best chance of rain and a few thunderstorms will
be southeast of Bridgeport to Cullman line where locally heavier
downpours will be possible.

A stronger upper level system will arrive late Tuesday night
into Wednesday morning.  This will bring more numerous showers
and thunderstorms, a few of which could be strong.  Then, as
a cold front tracks east of the area on Wednesday, much cooler
weather is anticipated through Thursday.

Smoke dispersion values will be fair to generally good on Tuesday
and good on Wednesday.


Fog potential over the next few days: Other than some low clouds
atop mountains and ridge tops, fog is not anticipated during the
next few days.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: Red Flag conditions are not
expected during the next several days.
