Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
425 PM EDT Sun Apr 22 2018

...Low RH Across Much of East KY Through Early Evening...

.DISCUSSION...High pressure departing to the north and east will
give way to low pressure moving into the area. However, a dry
airmass will linger into the first part of the evening,
especially across northern and eastern portions of the area though
winds remain light. Humidities will hold between 20 and 30
percent across most of East KY through sunset before rebounding
from southwest to northeast. Clouds will thicken into the evening
as rain steadily moves into the area from the southwest tonight.
Monday will be a bit more windy as the rain showers continue
aalong with higher humidities. Chances for showers will then
linger through midweek.
