FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LOUISVILLE KY
330 AM EDT THU APR 23 2015

.DISCUSSION...EXPECT A DRY DAY AS MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY
VALUES DROP AS LOW AS 18-25 PERCENT THIS AFTERNOON. NORTHWEST
WIND WILL BE STEADY AROUND 10-15 MPH WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS UP
AROUND 20-25 MPH. OVERALL...NOT AS WINDY AS YESTERDAY. THERE
IS SOME CONCERN FOR ENHANCED FIRE ACTIVITY AS HIGHS WILL REACH
INTO THE UPPER 50S AND LOW 60S IN MANY SPOTS. SMALL FUEL
MOISTURES APPEAR TO BE RUNNING IN THE 8-12 PERCENT RANGE DURING
AFTERNOON MINS AND WITH ANOTHER DAY OF DRYING ARE EXPECTED TO
GO A BIT LOWER. OVERALL...WINDS APPEAR TO BE THE MAIN LIMITING
FACTOR FOR ANY FURTHER CONCERN.
