FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CORPUS CHRISTI TX
342 PM CDT TUE APR 25 2017

...ELEVATED FIRE DANGER CONDITIONS EXPECTED ACROSS THE BRUSH
COUNTRY AND COASTAL BEND WEDNESDAY...

THE COMBINATION OF DRY AIR AND MODERATE TO STRONG NORTHWEST WIND
WILL RESULT IN AN ELEVATED FIRE DANGER CONDITION OVER THE BRUSH
COUNTRY AND THE COASTAL BEND FROM MID MORNING THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON ON WEDNESDAY.

NORTHWEST WIND 15 TO 25 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 30 MPH WILL OCCUR BEHIND
THE FRONT FROM MID MORNING THROUGH THE AFTERNOON WEDNESDAY. RELATIVE
HUMIDITY VALUES WILL RANGE GENERALLY FROM AROUND 15 PERCENT OVER
THE BRUSH COUNTRY TO 20 TO 25 PERCENT OVER THE COASTAL BEND.

THE ELEVATED FIRE DANGER RISK WILL DIMINISH BY THE EVENING AS
WIND SPEEDS DECREASE AND AS RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES INCREASE.

AFFECTED RESIDENTS ARE URGED TO EXERCISE CARE WITH RESPECT TO ALL
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES THAT COULD INADVERTENTLY CAUSE WILDFIRES.
AVOID THE USE OF WELDING OF GRINDING EQUIPMENT NEAR WEEKS, GRASS
AND DRY BRUSH. IN ADDITION, AVOID PARKING VEHICLES IN TALL, DRY
GRASS AND WEEDS THAT COULD BE IGNITED. DO NOT TOSS CIGARETTE BUTTS
ON THE GROUND. REPORT WILDFIRES QUICKLY TO THE NEAREST FIRE
