Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Northern Alabama
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
529 AM CST Sun Feb 16 2020

.DISCUSSION...

A weak upper-level trough of low pressure will move eastward
across the TN Valley today, resulting in broken-overcast clouds
and perhaps a few light showers this morning. Skies will begin to
clear this evening, as the trough shifts northeastward and away
from the region, and this may allow for the development of fog
early Monday morning. South-southeasterly winds will strengthen
during the day on Monday, to the east of a developing surface
cyclone over the northern Plains, with sustained 20-ft winds in
the 10-15 MPH range expected in higher terrain locations. A few
showers will also be possible late Monday afternoon as low-level
moisture increases, but the greatest coverage of showers/embedded
thunderstorms will occur Monday night/Tuesday, prior to the
passage of another strong cold front. Smoke dispersion indices
will be fair both today and tomorrow, due to mixing heights of
2500-3000 ft and transport flow of 10-15 MPH.

Fog potential over the next few days: A patchy-areal coverage of
fog is expected early Monday morning. Mist/fog associated with
precipitation is anticipated for much of Tuesday morning.

Potential for Red Flag Conditions: None at this time.
