.DISCUSSION...

...Elevated to Near Critical Fire Weather Conditions for Areas
West of Highway 281 on Wednesday Afternoon....

A cold front will approach the region tonight, but before then
highs today will be in the 80s to lower 90s. Much drier air and
breezy conditions will be in place tomorrow behind the front with
afternoon humidity values dropping below 20 percent for areas west
of Highway 281. The breezy north winds will be between 10 and 20
MPH. This will create elevated to near critical fire weather
conditions for the western areas of the CWA. The dry air will
remain in place on Thursday but lighter wind speeds will alleviate
any fire weather concerns. A small chance of rain returns to the
area Friday night through Monday.
