Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR Southeast Texas
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Houston/Galveston TX
259 AM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Light onshore winds will continue to veer towards southeasterly this morning. This
afternoon, those winds may also become fairly gusty. Higher humidity levels are
expected for the first half of the week as low pressure over the western plains
draws deeper moisture into the region. A few showers will be possible this afternoon
into Monday. Some lightning is possible, with the better potential on Monday.
