Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
251 PM CDT Fri May 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

An unsettled pattern is expected this weekend and again next week.
Strong to severe storms with very heavy rainfall are possible Saturday
and Sunday afternoons. Then a cold front will move through Sunday night
into Monday bringing another round of very heavy rain. Winds through
Sunday night remain out of the SW and could be breezy at times with
gusts of 15 to 20 mph possible in the afternoon. The SW winds allow
good low level moisture to stream into the area with RH values
increasing to the 60 percent range. The front switches winds to the
NW on Monday and should bring some slightly cooler and drier conditions.
But this won`t last long as there are chances for rain each afternoon
from Wednesday through the end of next week.


Fog potential over the next few days: Patchy fog is possible in areas
that receive heavy rain Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: Not at this time.
