Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
428 PM CDT Fri Aug 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A hot and humid airmass will remain in place across the forecast
area through early next week, with chances for mainly afternoon
showers and thunderstorms each day. Therefore fire weather is not
expected to be a concern over the next few days. Patchy areas of
late night and early morning fog will be possible, but dense fog
is not expected.
