FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
317 AM CST TUE JAN 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...

THE FORECAST THIS WEEK WILL BE UNSETTLED AS MULTIPLE SYSTEMS
MOVE ACROSS THE AREA AND BRING A FEW ROUNDS OF STORMS AND
POSSIBLY SEVERE WEATHER. THE FIRST ROUND OF SHOWERS ARRIVES
TODAY AS A COLD FRONT SLOWLY MOVES THROUGH THE REGION. WINDS
REMAIN OUT OF THE SOUTH THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON THEN BEGIN
TO SWITCH TO THE NW BEHIND THE FRONT THIS EVENING. WHILE
MIXING HEIGHTS WILL BE A BIT LOWER, STRONG TRANSPORT AND
20FT WINDS WILL SUPPORT GENERALLY GOOD DISPERSION VALUES TODAY.
A FEW THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THE FRONT.

AN INVERSION DEVELOPS AROUND 3,000FT TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY
BEHIND THE FRONT. THIS SHOULD KEEP MIXING AND CEILING HEIGHTS
LOW. A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM APPROACHES THE AREA THURSDAY
BRING THE SECOND WAVE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. A FEW STRONG
TO SEVERE STORMS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THIS SYSTEM.

WE WILL HAVE A BREAK IN RAIN ON FRIDAY BUT SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
RETURN SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AS AN EVEN STRONGER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM
MOVES INTO THE REGION OVER THE WEEKEND.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS FROM ALL OF THE SYSTEMS COULD BE UPWARDS OF 3 TO 5
INCHES AND WOULD HELP WITH THE DROUGHT CONDITIONS WE STILL HAVE.
