FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
435 AM CDT MON MAY 25 2015

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL PREVAIL ACROSS NORTHERN
ALABAMA FROM TODAY THROUGH TUESDAY...AND WILL LEAD TO A
CONTINUOUS SUPPLY OF TROPICAL MOISTURE WHEN COMBINED WITH
LIGHTER SOUTHERLY WINDS AT THE SURFACE. A COUPLE OF WEAK
DISTURBANCES IN THIS FLOW WILL MOVE ACROSS THE REGION THIS
AFTERNOON AND ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON...ENHANCING THE COVERAGE
OF SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS DURING THESE PERIODS. A FEW STRONG
TO MARGINALLY SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE -- ESPECIALLY ON
TUESDAY -- AS THE ATMOSPHERE BECOMES MORE UNSTABLE. MOST OF
THE REGION CAN EXPECT TO RECEIVE BETWEEN 1-1.5 INCHES OF
RAINFALL THROUGH TUESDAY...ALTHOUGH SOME LOCATIONS WILL
EXPERIENCE A LITTLE MORE OR A LITTLE LESS. MIXING HEIGHTS
BETWEEN 4800-5200 FT AND TRANSPORT WINDS OF 20-25 MPH WILL
PROMOTE GENERALLY GOOD TO GOOD SMOKE DISPERSION BOTH DAYS.

THE WET WEATHER PATTERN WILL DIMINISH TO SOME EXTENT IN THE
EXTENDED FORECAST PERIOD...AS THE ATLANTIC COAST RIDGE BREAKS
DOWN AND A WEAKER RIDGE ALOFT BUILDS ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN
STATES. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR A TRANSITION TO MORE SCATTERED
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING SHOWERS AND STORMS FROM WEDNESDAY
THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
