...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT SUNDAY AFTERNOON FOR THE EAST
CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

.Excellent mixing combined with a deepening surface low over the
Oklahoma and Texas panhandles will result in strong westerly winds
Sunday afternoon. Additionally, humidities will drop below 15
percent as temperatures rise above normal. A cold front will slide
southward across the plains in the evening which will cool
temperatures, raise humidities and mitigate critical fire weather
concerns.
