Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
301 PM CDT Mon May 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Rain chances will remain focused along an older outflow boundary closer to
the coastline tonight...with higher inland chances returning tomorrow with a
frontal passage. A continued unstable and saturated atmosphere will be what
the cold front encounters tomorrow as it travels across the area. Skies should
remain cloudy and enough with just enough of a breeze to keep any dense fog
formation at bay...patchy shallow fog is more likely to develop under a 1 to 2
thousand foot inversion layer.
