Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
343 AM CDT Tue Oct 24 2017

...Elevated Fire Weather Conditions Today, Thursday, and Friday...

.DISCUSSION...
20 ft winds today will gust to around 20 mph across portions of the
Hill Country and along and east of I-35 while minimum RH values drop
in the upper teens to low 20s. Fuel dryness maps from Texas A&M
Forest Service indicate normal to above normal fuel moisture today so
will hold off on a Red Flag and word conditions as elevated.

The dry air will remain in place Wednesday but with much weaker
winds. However, southwest winds will strengthen on Thursday and
20 ft winds will gust to near 20 mph across much of the area
while minimum RH values drop into the low 20s resulting in
elevated fire weather conditions.

A strong cold front will move through the area Friday morning. North
winds behind the front are forecast to gust between 20 and 30 mph
and with minimum RH values in the mid 20s to around 30 percent
fire weather conditions will again be elevated. Cold mornings are
expected Saturday and Sunday. A freeze is possible across portions
of the Hill Country Sunday morning as winds become light.
