Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
425 PM EDT Thu Apr 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...A fairly active and warm pattern is on the horizon
for the rest of the week into the weekend. However, Friday may be
sneaky dry, but given the green up and lack of strong winds would
think this will have little fire weather concern. Next week will
feature much cooler temperatures and continued unsettled weather.
