Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
306 PM CDT Sat Oct 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue through this afternoon. More
showers and perhaps a storm will be possible late tonight or very early Sunday
as a cold front approaches. The showers and storms will then become widespread
along the front as it moves through the area Sunday morning and midday. Northwest
winds, gusty at times, will follow in the wake of the front along with cooler and
drier air. Minimum relative humidity will be markedly lower early in the week,
and may make the amount of rainfall with this frontal passage a more important
factor.
