Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
317 PM CST Mon Jan 22 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A cold front will push eastward across the TN Valley late this
afternoon and this evening, bringing an end to the lingering
threat for showers and a few thunderstorms. Although gusty
southerly winds will also diminish with the passage of the front,
a moderate west-southwest flow is expected to continue throughout
the night, before shifting to the west-northwest tomorrow. Cloud
cover associated with an upper-level trough will spread
southeastward during the morning hours tomorrow, and this should
lead to fairly cool high temps in the u40s/l50s. After a light
freeze on Tuesday night, abundant sunshine on Wednesday will allow
highs to warm a few degrees above values expected tomorrow.
Strong transport flow in the 20-30 mph range will lead to a
continuation of good smoke dispersion tomorrow, although
dispersion should decrease a bit by Wednesday.

Dry and seasonably cool weather conditions will prevail for the
remainder of the work week, with afternoon RH still expected to
fall into the 30-40% range on Thursday/Friday. However, another
storm system will bring rain back to the region this weekend.

Fog potential over the next few days: Patchy freezing fog is
possible in river valleys and near large bodies of water on
Wednesday night.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
