NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
250 PM CDT FRI OCT 31 2014

.DISCUSSION...GUSTY NORTHERLY WINDS...FOLLOWING TODAYS COLD FRONT...WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING HOURS BEFORE DIMINISHING
SOME LATE TONIGHT. A MUCH COOLER AND DRIER AIRMASS WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION
FOR THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL BRING MINIMUM RH VALUES TO 25% OR LESS FOR LOCATIONS
ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI...NOTABLY THE HIGHWAY 84 CORRIDOR AND SOUTH. THE RH
VALUES ALONG WITH 20FT WINDS OF 15MPH OR LESS CAUSE SOME CONCERN FOR
FIRE DANGER MOSTLY ON SATURDAY. BECAUSE OF THIS...WE ARE ISSUING A FIRE DANGER
STATEMENT FOR LOCATIONS IN SOUTH MISSISSIPPI. LOCATIONS NORTH OF HIGHWAY 84
SHOULD SEE HIGHER RH VALUES DESPITE SOME DISTRICTS IN THE EAST STILL HAVING
GUSTY NORTHERLY WINDS. WINDS WILL DIMINISH GREATLY SATURDAY NIGHT AS THE HIGH
PRESSURE CENTER MOVES OVER OUR REGION. THIS WILL BRING FREEZING TEMPERATURES
AREAWIDE ALONG WITH SOME FROST. FROST IS NOT AS MUCH OF A CONCERN TONIGHT AS
WINDS WILL REMAIN GUSTY AND DEW IS NOT EXPECTED TO FORM. WARMER TEMPERATURES
WILL OCCUR INTO NEXT WEEK WITH ANOTHER CHANCE FOR RAIN BY THE END OF THE WEEK.
