FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
237 PM CDT SAT SEP 24 2016

.DISCUSSION...
HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE ON SUNDAY AS HIGH
PRESSURE REMAINS IN CONTROL OF THE WEATHER. MINIMUM RELATIVE
HUMIDITY VALUES WILL FALL NEAR 30 PERCENT AND KBDI VALUES
WILL BE WELL OVER 300. HOWEVER, WIND SPEEDS AT THE SURFACE AND
THROUGH 20 FEET WILL BE LIGHT AND VARIABLE WHICH WILL HELP
INHIBIT FIRE GROWTH.

A COLD FRONT APPROACHES ON MONDAY WHICH WILL BE THE BEST CHANCE
OF RAIN IN THE NEXT 7 DAYS. A WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINFALL IS NOT
EXPECTED WITH THIS FRONT...JUST SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
WINDS WILL ALSO INCREASE SLIGHTLY...AROUND 10 MPH... WITH THE
FRONTAL PASSAGE AND VEER TO THE NORTHWEST.

DRY WEATHER RETURNS TUESDAY WITH COOLER TEMPERATURES. ADDITIONAL
RAINFALL IS NOT EXPECTED THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK AND THE
NEXT WEEKEND.
