Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
231 PM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Gusty southerly flow will diminish a bit after sunset, then
redevelop again Saturday morning in advance of a storm system
moving out of the southern Plains.  A line of showers and
thunderstorms will track east through north Alabama from late
Saturday morning into the afternoon hours.  A second area of
thunderstorms will develop along a cold front along the Mississippi
valley Saturday afternoon and evening that will also track east
through north Alabama.  Some of the thunderstorms could produce
strong and gusty winds and locally heavy downpours both Saturday
into Saturday evening.  On Sunday, the chance of thunderstorms
will be lower, but a few strong storms remain possible capable of
hail.  The steady southerly flow and good mixing will result in
generally good to very good smoke dispersion both Saturday and
Sunday.  Rain amounts will be from 1 to 2 inches over the two
days.

Fog potential over the next few days: Fog is not anticipated
through Saturday.  Patchy ridge and mountaintop fog could develop
within low cloud decks that develop Saturday Night and Sunday
Night.

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