Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the Heartland
National Weather Service Paducah KY
357 AM CST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An elevated fire danger will exist today due to the combination of
strong gusty winds and dry fuels. Minimum relative humidity is
expected to approach critical thresholds west of the Mississippi
River, where the potential development of Red Flag conditions will
need to be monitored closely from late morning into this afternoon.

Low pressure will swing a cold front through the region late today.
Another weak cold front is expected to sweep through the region
Friday with no precipitation expected. The upper pattern across
the Heartland will become southwesterly over the weekend, finally
bringing our next chance of wetting rain late Saturday night into
Sunday. Conditions should dry out early next week, but temperatures
will remain mild for the season. Other than today, the only other
day that may present elevated fire potential is Saturday.
