Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
337 AM CST Sun Dec 16 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A strong upper-level low pressure system will continue to move
northeast and away from the region today. Low stratus decks will
linger through the mid to late afternoon, keeping mixing heights
fairly low and around 2 kft. Despite the clearing conditions,
similar mixing heights are expected for Monday. Min RH values
will bottom out at around 50-60 percent both days.

With transport winds being lighter, dispersion values will be fair
today, and generally poor on Monday.

Fog potential over the next few days: Low stratus clouds may create
localized patchy fog along the high terrain of the Cumberland Plateau
this morning.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
