Spot Forecast for Marathon...U.S. FOREST SERVICE
National Weather Service Jackson MS
743 AM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Forecast is based on ignition time of 0700 CST on February 26.
If conditions become unrepresentative, contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...Expecting another sunny day with temperatures warming
quickly. The main worry is the dry atmosphere as RH values dip
down below 30 percent by late morning. Fortunately, winds from
the southeast will not be very strong, but there still is an
increased risk of wildfire spread through the day due to the
combination of low humidity and winds. No fog is expected tonight,
although showers and thunderstorms should be moving in from the
west either very late or Monday morning.
