FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SW VA...SE WV AND NW NC
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BLACKSBURG VA
340 PM EDT SAT JUL 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
LOW PRESSURE MOVING OFF THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC COAST WILL PUSH A COLD 
FRONT SOUTHWARD TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN ROUNDS OF 
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THE UNSETTLED WEATHER WILL CONTINUE TO 
AFFECT THE REGION FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...KEEPING A CHANCE OF 
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FORECAST THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF 
NEXT WEEK...AS TEMPERATURES BEGIN A GRADUAL WARMING TREND. THE 
COMBINATION OF RELATIVELY LOW MIXING HEIGHTS AND LIGHT TRANSPORT 
WINDS WILL CREATE FAIR TO POOR VENTILATION AND DISPERSION THROUGH 
THE PERIOD. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL BE ABOVE 50 PERCENT 
FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
