Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
431 AM EST Wed Nov 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...Behind a departing cold front, below normal
temperatures in the 40s will be seen today. This will be coupled
with drier air filtering into the area, resulting in minimum
relative humidity values generally in the 40-50 percentile. A
warming trend will take place through late week as light winds
veer south/southwesterly and dry conditions continue.
