FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN ALABAMA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HUNTSVILLE AL
427 AM CDT TUE JUL 7 2015

.DISCUSSION...
MODERATE SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL PERSIST ACROSS NORTHERN ALABAMA
FROM TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...AS A WEAK COLD FRONT SLOWLY
APPROACHES THE REGION FROM THE NORTHWEST. ALTHOUGH THE FRONT
IS NOT EXPECTED TO MAKE IT INTO THE REGION...ISOLATED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE WARM AND HUMID
AIRMASS CURRENTLY IN PLACE. SOUTHWESTERLY TRANSPORT WINDS IN
THE 15-20 MPH RANGE WILL MAINTAIN GOOD SMOKE DISPERSION VALUES
BOTH TODAY AND TOMORROW. PATCHY FOG WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR MOST
FIRE WEATHER ZONES ONCE AGAIN TONIGHT...ALTHOUGH THE THREAT
WILL BE HIGHEST IN THE VALLEYS OF NORTHEAST ALABAMA AND FOR ANY
LOCATIONS THAT EXPERIENCE RAINFALL LATER TODAY OR THIS EVENING.

A LARGE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE IN THE UPPER PORTION OF THE
ATMOSPHERE IS STILL EXPECTED TO BUILD ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN
U.S. FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK AND WEEKEND. THIS WILL
PROVIDE HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS WITH ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
AFTERNOON SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY.
