Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
255 PM CST Sat Feb 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...A dry airmass will be over the region again on Sunday with
minimum humidities around 20 to 30 percent. This combined with breezy
southerly winds on Sunday will increase fire weather risk that we have seen
in the last few days. A decent fuel moisture content may limit the risk some.
So have put a limited risk of fire danger graphic for all districts as well
as mention the risk in the Hazardous Weather Outlook for Sunday. No
significant fog risk is expected for Sunday or Monday morning.
