Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
338 PM CST Sat Dec 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Strengthening onshore winds are expected this evening as a
coastal low pressure system moves up from the middle Texas coast
into the area. This pattern will allow for the rapid return of
low-level moisture and increased rain chances through late this evening.
Some of the thunderstorms along the coast may be
strong, and gusty winds will be possible.
