PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 1110 AM EST Sun Mar 7 2021/
Have updated temperatures and dew points to capture trends this morning. Relative humidity is still on track to bottom out at or below 25% for much of the forecast area for several hours this afternoon and early evening, so a Fire Danger Statement is in effect for the entire CWA.
Otherwise, the forecast remains on track.

12Z Aviation Forecast Discussion.
SHORT TERM /Today through Monday/ .
Upper flow pattern transitions from northwesterly to weak ridging through the short-term forecast period as a large surface ridge builds into the region. Near seasonal normal highs today and a bit above tomorrow, but persistent dry low-level airmass allows overnight lows to drop below normal tonight/Monday morning.
LONG TERM /Monday Night through Saturday/ .
The forecast area remains in a strong northwest upper flow through the middle of the upcoming week After that. the flow flattens and transitions into a more west to southwest pattern. Models in good agreement through Friday . but start to diverge at the very end of the period. Strong high pressure aloft centered in the northern Gulf should keep the deeper moisture to our north and west A cold front drifts into the OH Valley on Friday. but depends on the evolution of a Great Lakes trough. At this time the models are undecided on whether to deepen the trough or build the ridge over the Great Lakes For now. have taken the dry approach and kept pops out through Saturday.
FIRE WEATHER .
Looking at widespread area of sub-25% relative humidity values again this afternoon, essentially covering the entire forecast area. Duration and 10-hour fuel moisture conditions favorable for a Fire Danger Statement for all of our counties. Highly likely we will need another statement for Monday as well as low-level moisture remains limited and temperatures continue to moderate. Wind speeds should remain below criteria to elevate this to Red Flag conditions.
AVIATION. 18Z Update . SKC will persist through the TAF period at all TAF sites. Winds are currently shifting back to NNW after spending a few hours out of the NNE. Speeds will be ~4-7 kts before becoming light and variable after 00z (with a general direction of NNE at KATL). Winds could again turn NNE tomorrow morning around 14z, but return to NW or W by 18z. No restrictions to visbys are expected.
//ATL Confidence . 18Z Update . High confidence on all elements.
