Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
145 PM CDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...

A large cell of high pressure over the Great Lakes south
to the Gulf Coast will shift east through Saturday.  This
will bring another dry and sunny day to the region before
an intense upper level low pressure system in the southern
Rockies moves east into the southeast U.S. on Sunday into
Monday. This will bring widespread moderate to locally
heavy rainfall starting as early as Saturday night, and
lasting into Monday.  Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are
expected.  A few embedded thunderstorms will also be
possible.

The dry airmass associated with the high pressure will allow
for RH values to dip into the 25 to 35 percent range again
on Saturday afternoon, but then remaining above 60 percent
on Sunday.  Transport winds will be southeast at 13-15 mph on
Saturday and 14 to 20 mph on Sunday. Smoke dispersion will be
good on Saturday and fair to generally good on Sunday.


Fog potential over the next few days: None expected.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: Not expected.
