Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Deep South Texas
National Weather Service Brownsville TX
512 AM CST Tue Feb 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...A dry cold front will sweep through Deep South
Texas this morning with gusty northwest winds ushering a very dry
airmass into the region. The dry air will cause RH values to drop
into the mid teens across the Ranchlands and much of the Rio
Grande Valley. RH values will be slightly higher...in the lower
to mid 20...across coastal areas. Furthermore...the 20-foot winds
will be near or just below the critical threshold of 15 mph
...with gusts to 20 mph. A RFD has been issued to highlight this
danger...however if RH values decrease even more or winds
increase...a RFW maybe needed. The one thing that may help
mitigate the dangerous fire weather conditions will be the recent
rainfall....however drought conditions are still in place. The
winds will decrease tonight as high pressure settles into the
Valley. Fire weather conditions will be much improved on Wednesday
as RH values will be somewhat higher and the 20-foot winds rather
light. Delaying any burns until tomorrow maybe prudent.
