Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
406 AM CST Fri Nov 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Well-above normal temperatures and increasing southerly winds
with gusts in the 15-25 MPH range are expected today ahead of a
cold front expected to reach the region on Saturday. Isolated
showers will be possible along the cold front Saturday afternoon
and evening, but chances for wetting rain are low. Drier air
behind the front will mean afternoon relative humidities falling
below 30 percent on Sunday and again on Monday. Elevated fire
weather conditions may be possible on Sunday but winds are
expected to decrease below 10 MPH before driest conditions occur.
