NEAR TERM /Now Through Monday/...An upper level trough over the
Southeast moves off to the east, as an upper level ridge over the
Plains shifts east to over the Mississippi River Valley. A second
upper level trough moves east over the northern Gulf of Mexico with
the shifting upper ridge. A surface ridge over the Mid-
Mississippi River Valley shifts southeast, to over the
Carolina/Georgia coast by Tuesday evening in response to the
shifting upper ridge. A cooler and very dry airmass settles over
the Southeast into the coming week.

Temperatures remain below seasonal norms into Monday. Low
temperatures see slight downward trend from tonight to Sunday night
as winds settle. Low temperatures in the low 30s to around 40
inland, low 40s along the coast are expected each night. High
temperatures in the mid to upper 60s Sunday will see an uptick into
the low 70s for Monday as the cool northerly push eases with the
passage of the surface high over and east of the forecast area.

Both Sunday and Monday will see daytime relative humidity values
dropping well below critical values both days with the dry airmass
moving over the Southeast. Around 20 percent is expected Sunday
with 20 to 25 percent on Monday. Have dropped the dewpoints for
Monday, with the dry airmass still over the Southeast, and minimal
to no return flow off the Gulf. With these low moisture levels,
there is expected to be an increased hazard with any burning.
