Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
230 PM CST Wed Mar 1 2017

...ELEVATED TO NEAR CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS EXPECTED THURSDAY
AFTERNOON...

.DISCUSSION...
Another very dry day is expected as minimum RH values are forecast
to fall into the mid 20s to upper teens for much of the area.
Winds will generally be out of the east and northeast tomorrow and
should stay relatively light, mostly below 15 mph, but afternoon
gusts could reach 20 mph. A few isolated locations could briefly
see critical RH and wind speeds but not for consecutive hours.
Additionally...fuel moisture analysis is showing increased dryness
to 10 hr fuels west of the I-35 corridor which should continue
to increase this afternoon and through tomorrow afternoon. Thus a
close eye will need to be kept on conditions tomorrow afternoon as
conditions become most favorable.

Moisture return is expected Friday with wetting rains returning to
the forecast for the weekend.
