Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
442 PM EDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...High pressure slowly passing by to our north will
provide quiet, dry weather at least into the day Sunday.
Ridge/valley temperature and humidity differences will be present
for the next couple of nights, with valleys being colder and
damper, and ridges milder and drier. A slow moving area of low
pressure will pass through the southeast CONUS early in the new
week. It will likely bring our next period of wet weather.
