Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
423 AM CST Fri Dec 15 2017
.DISCUSSION...
Fire weather danger will increase just a bit over the next couple
of days due to low afternoon RH dropping below 40 percent, but 
light wind will keep the danger from becoming more significant. 
Otherwise, expect dry weather for the most part with the potential
for some light rain or sprinkles south of the Highway 84 
corridor today in southern MS. Fog is not expected to be a concern
in the dry airmass, but a strong near surface inversion will 
likely develop due to clearing skies and light wind tonight.
