Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama...UPDATED
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
454 PM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Dry and warm weather is expected to continue tonight into Friday
ahead of a storm system expected to bring showers and thunderstorms
beginning on Saturday morning through Saturday evening.

Mixing heights should rise on Friday afternoon above 3500 feet
with southerly 20-foot winds gusting up to 20 MPH. This will mean
good dispersion for Friday. Then, storms are expected to increase
very late on Friday night into early Saturday morning over northwest
Alabama. Then, a strong to severe squall line is expected to cross
the region on Saturday afternoon and evening. This could bring
gusty winds ahead of the squall line and damaging winds up to 60
MPH with the squall line. A brief dry weather day is expected on
Sunday before more showers and storms arrive by Monday.

Fog potential over the next few days: No fog potential at this
time.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: Red Flag conditions are not
expected for the next 7 days.
