NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
252 PM CST SAT JAN 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A COLD FRONT WILL CROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS TONIGHT. WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS
WILL PREVAIL SUNDAY AND MONDAY. THOUGH GUSTY WINDS ON SUNDAY WILL LIKELY REACH
THE RED FLAG WARNING THRESHOLD...RELATIVE HUMIDITY IS NOT CURRENTLY FORECAST
TO REACH CRITICALLY LOW LEVELS. STILL...THE STRONG WINDS AND
RELATIVELY DEEP MIXING LAYER FOR JANUARY COULD POSE SOME ISSUES FOR ANY
FIRES THAT MAY IGNITE SUNDAY.
