Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Heartland
National Weather Service Paducah KY
431 AM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Warm and humid conditions will continue across the Heartland
today and Monday, with afternoon heat index values topping
out in the upper 90s to around 100 degrees.

A weak disturbance aloft will keep a small chance for showers and
thunderstorms across part of the area today, but any storm
activity should dissipate after sunset.

Mostly sunny conditions should prevail across southwest Indiana,
west Kentucky, and southern Illinois during the passage of the
eclipse on Monday. A few more clouds and an isolated shower or
thunderstorm may be possible over parts of southeast Missouri and
extreme southwest Illinois Monday afternoon.

Rain chances will return from the north on Tuesday. Storms will
work southeast through the Heartland region through early
Wednesday morning. Some of the storms could become severe late
Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Drier and cooler conditions will return on Wednesday and persist
through the remainder of this week. Highs will be in the lower 90s
today and Monday, cooling into the lower 80s for the latter half
of the week. Lows will move from the 70s, downward into the 50s
and 60s this week.
