Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR Southeast Texas
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Houston/Galveston TX
245 PM CST Sat Feb 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A light onshore flow will develop tonight as high pressure shifts east of the region.
Higher moisture levels are expected both Sunday and Monday as low pressure over the
western plains draws deeper moisture into the region. A few showers will be possible
Sunday afternoon into Monday. Southeast winds will increase on Sunday and could become
gusty by afternoon.
