Fire Weather Planning Forecast For South Texas
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
340 PM CDT Thu Apr 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...Warm to hot conditions are expected Friday.
Temperatures are expected to reach into the triple digits west of
Highway 77. Breezy to windy conditions will develop across the
Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads. West of Highway 77, relative
humidity values are expected to drop below 35 percent, however at
this time winds should remain below fire weather criteria across
this area as well. Warm to hot temperatures are expected again
Saturday. The combination of a strong upper level disturbance and
the associated cold front will contribute to scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms late Saturday through early Sunday
morning. Some storms may become strong. The front will move
offshore flow early Sunday. After frontal passage, much drier
atmospheric conditions are expected. Elevated to critical fire
weather conditions may occur Sunday afternoon. Dry conditions are
expected Monday and Tuesday, yet winds are expected to remain
below Elevated fire weather conditions. Increasing moisture
expected Wednesday and Thursday along with a slight chance for
showers.
