Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
256 PM CST Sun Jan 21 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Overcast, warmer and more humid weather continuing this evening
as an onshore flow persists. Sea fog will remain an issue along
and near the coast through tonight. A mild cold front will be
sweeping through the region tonight and should push off the coast
Monday morning. Showers and a few thunderstorms will likely
accompany the front. Dry and breezy conditions are expected in
the wake of the front on Monday, with RH dipping into the mid to
upper 20s for a few hours in the afternoon. This will create
elevated fire conditions Monday afternoon. Tuesday will be just
as dry but with much lighter winds.
