Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
252 PM CST Mon Feb 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...Rain will begin to move into the region from the
west over the next few hours as a deep closed low moves through
the region, pulling Gulf moisture into the ArkLaMiss. Rain
chances will stick around throughout the day on Tuesday before
starting to decrease on Tuesday night. This will result in minimal
fire weather concerns through midweek.
