Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
420 AM EDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will spread east over the
area and provide a few days of rain free weather over eastern
Kentucky. This will also lead to milder conditions today and
Wednesday. By Wednesday, drier air will lead to some relative
humidities under 30 percent during the afternoon and early evening
hours with some weak south winds developing. Rain chances will
return Thursday as a cold front sweeps across the region. Look
farther ahead, a warm front will lift north of the area on Friday
and keep the area unseasonably warm through next weekend.
