Fire Weather Planning Forecast for SW VA...SE WV and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
413 AM EST Mon Dec 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Variably cloudy skies are expected through today, with the 
greatest cloud cover west of the Blue Ridge. Periods of drizzle 
will be possible in these cloudier areas. More sun and milder 
temperatures are expected in the Piedmont, but relative humidities
will be no lower than 55 percent. Light west winds. 

Warmer temperatures expected Tuesday but similar relative 
humidities to Monday are anticipated. A frontal system will 
increase clouds and offer the next chance for rain. Best chance 
for wetting rains would be along and south of Route 460. Cool 
wedge conditions then return for the rest of the workweek.

Fire weather concerns will be low through the next five days.
