FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
405 PM CST FRI JAN 20 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. THE GUSTY WINDS WILL LIKELY BE SUFFICIENT
FOR A FIRE WEATHER WATCH ON SUNDAY...BUT AT THIS TIME RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS
NOT 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.
