FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
452 AM CST THU JAN 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A FINAL UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE OVER THE AREA TODAY AND
SUPPORT SHOWERS ACROSS THE AREA. LIGHT SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL
CONTINUE TONIGHT THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. LOOK FOR A STRONG
FRONT TO PUSH THROUGH THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT WITH WINDY AND DRY
CONDITIONS SUNDAY AND MONDAY. FIRE WEATHER WATCHES OR RED FLAG
WARNINGS MIGHT BE NEEDED ON SUNDAY DUE TO THE STRONG WINDS...BUT
AT THIS TIME IT LOOKS LIKE RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL NOT BE LOW
ENOUGH.
