Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky...UPDATED
National Weather Service Jackson KY
1005 AM EDT Sat Mar 25 2017

...Gusty Winds at Times Today...
...Humidities This Afternoon Bottoming Out Below 30 percent In
Portions of the Southeast and Northeast KDF Regions...

.DISCUSSION...A slow moving low pressure system will pass by to our
northwest this weekend. The flow around the system will bring southerly
winds and mild temperatures. Gusts will reach around 20 mph each day.
Showers will arrive tonight and last into Sunday, with thunderstorms
also possible. No change in air mass will occur with the system`s
departure, so it will continue mild. Another low pressure system will
track northeast through the Ohio Valley on Monday night and Tuesday,
with another increase in the potential for showers and thunderstorms.
This system will send a cold front through the area, resulting in the
arrival a modestly cooler and drier air mass for mid week.
