FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
318 AM EDT SAT APR 18 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A WEAK DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH TODAY BRINGING A FEW SHOWERS
TO THE REGION. IT DOES LOOK UNSTABLE ENOUGH FOR SOME EMBEDDED
THUNDERSTORMS AS WELL. THE BIGGEST CONCERN TODAY WILL BE OVER
EXTREME SOUTHWEST NEW HAMPSHIRE. THAT LOCATION MAY NOT SEE THE
RAIN TODAY...AND RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES COULD DROP TO AS LOW
AS 30 PERCENT DURING THE AFTERNOON...WITH A DEVELOPING 10 MPH WEST WIND
GUSTING TO AROUND 20 MPH AT TIMES. WHILE WE`LL FALL SHORT OF RED FLAG
CRITERIA THERE...AN ELEVATED FIRE SPREAD POTENTIAL WILL EXIST. HIGH
PRESSURE WILL BRING LIGHT WINDS AND MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES
OF BETWEEN 20 AND 30 PERCENT ON SUNDAY. SLOW-MOVING LOW PRESSURE IS
LIKELY TO PRODUCE A SOAKING RAIN MONDAY AND TUESDAY.
