FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE MIDSOUTH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MEMPHIS TN
402 AM CST WED JAN 28 2015

.DISCUSSION...

A NICE DAY WEATHERWISE FOR JANUARY CAN BE EXPECTED TODAY ACROSS THE
MIDSOUTH. HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE TO THE ATLANTIC COAST WITH WINDS
TURNING TO THE SOUTH ACROSS THE MIDSOUTH. THIS WILL BOOST
TEMPERATURES TO ABOVE NORMAL READINGS THIS AFTERNOON. UNDER FULL
SUNSHINE...HIGHS WILL CLIMB INTO THE 50S AND LOWER 60S.

SOUTH WINDS WILL INCREASE TONIGHT BECOMING GUSTY AS A COLD FRONT
APPROACHES FROM THE NORTHWEST. THE COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE
REGION LATE TONIGHT AND THURSDAY WITH JUST A SMALL CHANCE OF RAIN.
MILD AIR WILL PUSH INTO AREAS AHEAD OF THE FRONT ON THURSDAY. COLD
AND DRY PRESSURE WILL BUILD INTO THE REGION FOR FRIDAY.

DRY WEATHER WILL PERSIST ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA DURING THE DAY
SATURDAY. LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING TO THE WEST MAY CAUSE A SLIGHT
CHANCE OF RAIN OVER PORTIONS OF EASTERN ARKANSAS IN THE AFTERNOON.
RAIN WILL BECOME LIKELY FROM THE WEST SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY AS
THE LOW PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ON
THE CHILLY SIDE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
