Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Eastern Kentucky
National Weather Service Jackson KY
600 AM EDT Thu May 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will provide for a comfortable and
mostly dry day across eastern Kentucky. However, a stalled
boundary along the TN and VA border may allow a few thunderstorms
to develop for this afternoon along the VA border. Better chances
for storms across the entire area develop Friday afternoon with
the decent chances for showers and storms continuing through the
holiday weekend.
