Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
413 AM CDT Fri Sep 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Light and variable flow will persist at the surface over the next
couple of days as a dome of high pressure remains over much of the
eastern CONUS. Moisture will remain fairly abundant today and
tomorrow, leading to afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Coverage
is generally expected to remain isolated, though areas south of the
TN River may see slightly higher coverage. As temperatures warm into
the mid to upper 80s, mixing heights will rise well above 6000 feet.
This will combine with transport winds around 5 mph to produce fair
to generally good dispersion conditions by this afternoon.
Dispersion conditions will drop to generally poor to fair on
Saturday as transport winds weaken below 5 mph. High pressure will
remain over the area through the middle of next week, keeping the
sensible weather pattern across northern Alabama very similar each
day.

Fog potential over the next few days: Patchy fog, dense at times,
will be possible each morning over the next several days.
Locations near bodies of water or in valley locations have the
higher chance of experiencing fog. Any fog that does develop will
dissipate shortly after sunrise.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
