FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR DEEP SOUTH TEXAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BROWNSVILLE TX
458 AM CST FRI JAN 20 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH
SUNDAY AFTERNOON...

.DISCUSSION...AFTER ANOTHER HIGH HUMIDITY AND LOW CHANCE OF RAIN
TODAY MAIN CONCERNS WILL BE THE LOWERING RELATIVE HUMIDITY OVER
THE WEEKEND WITH THE PASSAGE OF A VERY DRY AND WINDY FRONT SUNDAY.
AN EXPECTED DEEPENING LOW PRESSURE AREA OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS
WILL BEGIN TO USHER IN DRIER SOUTHWEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS
SATURDAY. VERY WARM TEMPERATURES TO COMBINE WITH LOWER DEW POINTS
ALLOWING RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TO CRASHING DURING THE
AFTERNOON. ALTHOUGH WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE INITIALLY HIGH
ENOUGH TO WARRANT ELEVATED FIRE DANGER DEEP MIXING IN THE
AFTERNOON COULD RESULT IN CONDITIONS NEARING DANGER LEVELS ACROSS
THE WESTERN RANCHLANDS. A MORE ROBUST AND WIDESPREAD WIND SHIFT
AND EVEN DRIER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED SUNDAY WITH A FIRE WEATHER
WATCH ALREADY IN EFFECT WITH CONFIDENCE INCREASING FOR RED FLAG
WARNINGS FOR ALL AREAS. WINDS DIMINISHING MONDAY BUT HUMIDITY
LEVELS WILL LIKELY STILL BE LOW. STRONGER SOUTH WINDS WITH HIGHER
HUMIDITY ANTICIPATED FOR TUESDAY IN ADVANCE OF ANOTHER DRY FRONT
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
