Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
157 PM CST Wed Jan 17 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Surface high pressure will build across the region resulting in
cold and dry conditions through the remainder of the work week.
A very slow moderating temperature trend is expected with highs
finally reaching near normal values by Saturday. Given the dry
airmass in place the afternoon humidity values will drop well
below 40 percent and may approach 30 percent. As the high builds
across the area winds will become quite light resulting in
unfavorable dispersion for burning across the region.

Fog potential over the next few days: patchy freezing fog is
likely tonight, especially near bodies of water and where some
snow cover remains.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
