THE UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE CURRENTLY PRODUCING RAIN ACROSS THE REGION WILL QUICKLY EXIT AND IN ITS WAKE...ANOTHER HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL BEGIN TO BUILD IN OVER THE REGION FOR A FEW DAYS. DUE THIS HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM DRYING OUT THE REGION RAPIDLY ON THURSDAY...DANGEROUSLY LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITIES COUPLED WITH HIGH DISPERSION VALUES IN THE FL BIG BEND AND PANHANDLE HAS PROMPTED A RED FLAG WARNING FOR ALL FL ZONES ON THURSDAY...AND A WATCH ON FRIDAY ALSO DUE TO CRITICALLY LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES. THERE IS ALSO A RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE GA AND AL COUNTIES ON THURSDAY DUE TO VERY LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES FOR LONG DURATIONS. A FIRE WX WATCH IS ALSO IN EFFECT ON FRIDAY FOR ALL GA AND AL ZONES. AFTER FRIDAY...ANOTHER DISTURBANCE WILL PUSH THROUGH THE REGION OVER THE WEEKEND AND LEAD WAY TO HIGHER RELATIVE HUMIDITIES AND NO CONCERNS FOR FIRE WEATHER. EARLY NEXT WEEK...DRY AIR WILL ATTEMPT TO FILTER BACK INTO THE REGION AGAIN BUT RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES DO NOT APPEAR TO MEET CRITERIA AT THAT POINT.
