Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central Georgia...Corrected
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
337 AM EDT Thu Apr 19 2018

...HIGH FIRE DANGER CONDITIONS THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE EARLY
EVENING FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA DUE TO STRONG
NORTHWEST WINDS...

.DISCUSSION...

Another Fire Danger Statement has been issued for today as gusty
winds and falling RH values are expected this afternoon as dry
fuels remain across the area. A mainly dry cold front will cross
north and central GA this morning with a drier airmass moving in
from the north. Northwest winds behind the front will be around 15
to 20 mph with gusts upwards of 23 to 28 mph. RH values will drop
into the mid to upper 20s/low 30s by the afternoon, possibly
dropping closer to 20 to 25 percent if dew points fall quicker
than expected. Although the winds will diminish on Friday, RH
values will be in the mid 20s with continued dry conditions. This
will likely result in another Fire Danger Statement being hoisted
on Friday.
