SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Wednesday)

A very warm day across much of West Central Texas with gusty
southwest to west winds of around 30 mph. Temperatures were in the
mid to upper 80s along and south of San Angelo to Brownwood line.
The combination of the very warm and dry conditions are resulting
in critical fire weather conditions across the Big Country and
much of the Concho Valley. A cool will move south across the area
tonight and Wednesday morning. Expect much cooler temperatures
Wednesday, with highs 55 to 65, and gusty northwest winds will
prevail. Going with a dry forecast for the next 24 hours.

LONG TERM...
(Wednesday Night through Tuesday)

Looks like mainly a quiet weather pattern through the long term
as upper level west-northwest low will dominate and a strong
surface high over the Great Basin will influence our weather with
cooler temperatures. Highs will be in the 50s through Sunday with
lows in the upper 20s and 30s. Warmer temperature will return
early next week, with highs in the 60s. There is chance of showers
Saturday as an upper level low will develop to our south. However,
rainfall amounts will be light.

FIRE WEATHER...

The combination of very warm and dry conditions are resulting in
critical fire weather conditions across the Big Country and much
of the Concho Valley. A Red Flag Warning is in effect until 6 PM
across these areas. For Wednesday, gusty northwest winds and dry
conditions will result in elevated fire weather conditions south
of the I-20 corridor.
