FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
544 AM CST FRI JAN 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT TO MODERATE SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL PERSIST UNTIL A STRONG
COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT. WINDY AND DRY
CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL SUNDAY AND MONDAY. THE GUSTY WINDS WILL LIKELY BE
SUFFICIENT FOR A FIRE WEATHER WATCH ON SUNDAY...BUT AT THIS TIME RELATIVE
HUMIDITY IS NOT 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.
