Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
613 AM EDT Mon Sep 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...High pressure located just to our northeast will
continue to be the main driver of weather over the next several
days. Dry weather, above normal temperatures, and light winds will
result across much of eastern Kentucky through Wednesday. RH
values may fall into the upper 30 percent range across much of the
area this afternoon, and in the upper 30 to low 40 percent range
on Tuesday. Two dry cold fronts are expected to push through
eastern Kentucky during the second half of the work-week. Each
front will bring with it a surge of cooler air, with below
seasonable normal temperatures expected as we head into next
weekend.
