Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Heartland
National Weather Service Paducah KY
451 AM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Under moist southwesterly flow aloft, a warm front south of the
Heartland will move northward through the region today, while a
low pressure area moves by just to our northwest. Another area of
low pressure and a cold front will approach the region from the
west also. There should be only scattered light showers over most
of the region through the morning hours, but by afternoon,
scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast to become more
numerous, expanding from the southwest. Some storms may become
severe. Tonight, the front will pass eastward through the region,
bringing in an end to the soaking rainfall.

High pressure will reign Sunday through the middle of next week,
when another low pressure system is expected to provide an
interval of rainfall. More dry weather is expected into the
following weekend under ridging aloft and at the surface. Smoke
dispersion will be generally limited until midweek.
