Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
347 AM CDT Tue Oct 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A potent upper level trough will move through the Mid-South
today. The trough will bring isolated to scattered showers to
portions of Northeast Arkansas, the Missouri Bootheel, West
Tennessee and Northeast Mississippi from around mid-day through
the afternoon hours.

Meanwhile, East-Central Arkansas and Northwest Mississippi will
see near Red Flag conditions develop this afternoon as relative humidities
drop below 30 percent and gusty Northwest winds kick up behind the
upper trof. The recent dry conditions will allow 10 hour fuel moistures
to range from 7-10 percent across this area.

Low relative humidities will occur each day during the afternoon hours
through Thursday. A cold front will bring wetting rain to the
Mid-South on Friday.
