Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
401 AM CDT Sat Apr 21 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Dry weather is expected across the Mid-South today, but rain
chances will increase from west to east this evening and
overnight. A widespread wetting rain is likely tonight and Sunday
with a few thunderstorms possible tomorrow. Rain showers are
forecast to linger into early next week. A slow moisture return
today will result in low relative humidity in the Tennessee River
Valley but 20 ft wind speed will remain critical thresholds.
Minimum relative humidity will be much higher Sunday through the
middle of next week.
