Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
231 PM CDT Thu Sep 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A persistent pattern of warm and humid summer-like conditions
will prevail through the middle part of next week. Light winds
will prevail, becoming calm in most places overnight, leading to
patchy fog. Isolated showers will occur in the afternoon, with
limited chances for wetting rains. A cold frontal passage next
Thursday (a week from today) will likely bring drier mid-continental
air to the Midsouth, more typical of autumn.
