Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
341 PM CST Fri Nov 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Well-above normal temperatures and increasing southerly winds
with gusts in the 15 to 25 MPH range are expected to diminish late
this afternoon. Breezy conditions are possible again on Saturday
ahead of a cold front that is expected to reach the coast by
Saturday evening. Isolated showers will be possible along the
cold front Saturday afternoon and evening, but chances for wetting
rain are low. Drier air behind the front will lead to the relative
humidity falling to below 30 percent on Sunday and again on
Monday. Elevated fire weather conditions may be possible on Sunday
but winds are expected to decrease below 10 MPH before driest
conditions occur.
