Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
429 PM EDT Thu Apr 19 2018

.DISCUSSION...A large area of high pressure passing to our north
will provide tranquil weather lasting into the weekend.
Low relative humidity will occur on Friday and Saturday afternoons,
with minimum values then beginning a climb on Sunday. Notable
ridge/valley differences for temperatures and relative humidity
will be observed for at least the next couple of nights, with
warmer and drier conditions on ridges, and cooler and damper
conditions in valleys. A storm system slowly passing through the
southeast CONUS and then up the east coast will affect us beginning
on Sunday. At a minimum, there will be an increase in clouds. Rain
will also be possible. The system`s influence is expected to last
through the middle of next week.
