Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
546 AM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...

An upper level low will continue to push away from the Mid-South as
a ridge of high pressure builds across the Lower Mississippi Valley.
This will bring drier air and a moderation of temperatures into the
70s this afternoon, in the upper 70s to lower 80s on Tuesday, and
upper 70s to middle 80s on Wednesday.

An upper level trough and associated cold front will bring shower
and thunderstorm chances back to the Mid-South for Wednesday
afternoon into Thursday. An unsettled pattern is expected to
continue into next weekend as a series of upper level disturbances
move across the region with highs in the 70s and 80s and lows mainly
in the 60s.
