NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
355 AM CST SAT JAN 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT TO MODERATE SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL PERSIST UNTIL A STRONG
COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT. WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS
WILL PREVAIL SUNDAY AND MONDAY. THOUGH GUSTY WINDS ON SUNDAY WILL LIKELY REACH
THE RED FLAG WARNING THRESHOLD...RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS NOT CURRENTLY FORECAST
TO REACH CRITICALLY LOW LEVELS. STILL...THE STRONG WINDS AND
RELATIVELY DEEP MIXING LAYER FOR JANUARY COULD POSE SOME ISSUES FOR ANY
FIRES THAT MAY IGNITE SUNDAY.
