NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NASHVILLE TN
252 PM CDT SUN MAY 3 2015

...MARGINAL FIRE DANGER EXPECTED FOR A FEW HOURS THIS AFTERNOON
WEST OF THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU...

.DISCUSSION...A DRY ATMOSPHERE AND WARM TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON
WILL CREATE MARGINAL FIRE DANGER AT A NUMBER OF LOCATIONS WEST OF
THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU...MAINLY THROUGH 4 PM CDT.

SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE SLOWLY MOVING OFF TO THE EAST OVER
THE NEXT FEW DAYS. A LIGHT SOUTHERLY RETURN FLOW WILL THEN COMBINE
WITH INCREASING HEIGHTS TO PRODUCE A WARMING TREND WITH DRY
WEATHER CONTINUING. NO FRONTAL PASSAGES OR ANY APPRECIABLE
PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT WEEK. UPPER RIDGE MAY
WEAKEN ENOUGH BY THE END OF THE WEEK TO ALLOW FOR A FEW ISOLATED
AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS. OTHERWISE...DRY.
