Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
301 PM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Clouds will continue to linger through this evening, but clearing
skies and light winds overnight will likely result in patchy fog
development. Any fog will mix out by mid morning, with max
temperatures topping out very near seasonal normals Wednesday and
RH values generally 40-50 percent. Chances for wetting rains will
come into play Wednesday evening through Thursday morning, with
more chances in for Friday. The weekend will bring a dry forecast
with potential for lower RH values.
