FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SW VA...SE WV AND NW NC
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BLACKSBURG VA
357 PM EDT SUN MAY 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A VERY SLOW RETURN OF MOISTURE WITH SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL BRING
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE SOUTHWEST 
PORTION OF THE FORECAST AREA ON MONDAY...ESPECIALLY NEAR THE BLUE 
RIDGE. A SIMILAR PATTERN WILL BE SEEN AGAIN ON TUESDAY BUT PERHAPS 
WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS DEVELOPING A LITTLE FARTHER NORTH ACROSS THE
MOUNTAINS. AFTERNOON MINIMUM RELATIVELY HUMIDITY VALUES WILL CLIMB A 
LITTLE HIGHER EACH DAY THROUGH MID WEEK.

A BACK DOOR FRONT WILL MOVE SOUTH ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC REGION
ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN A BETTER
CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR MORE LOCATIONS ACROSS THE 
REGION...AND LIGHT WINDS WILL SHIFT TO THE EAST OR NORTHEAST BEHIND THIS 
FRONT.
