FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
147 PM CDT TUE AUG 23 2016

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE IS BUILDING OVER THE AREA TODAY AND SHOULD REMAIN
OVERHEAD THROUGH THE WEEKEND. MOISTURE HAS SLOWLY RETURNED TO THE
AREA TODAY WITH DEWPOINTS INCREASING FROM THE 60S BACK INTO THE 70S
ACROSS NW AL. THIS INCREASE IN MOISTURE MAY ALLOW FOR ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP EACH AFTERNOON FROM WEDNESDAY THROUGH
SUNDAY. HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IN THE ACTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF STORMS IS
LOW. WITH THE HIGH OVER THE AREA EXPECT WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE
LIGHT AND VARIABLE. WHILE WE CAN EXPECT GOOD MIXING EACH AFTERNOON
THE LIGHT WINDS WILL RESULT IN POOR TO FAIR DISPERSION VALUES. HEAT
INDICES MAY REACH ABOVE THE 100 DEGREE MARK DURING THE LATTER HALF
OF THE WEEK AND INTO THE WEEKEND.
