FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE SOUTH PLAINS AREA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX
630 AM CDT SUN APR 20 2014

.DISCUSSION...
ONE MORE DAY OF RAIN CHANCES BEFORE WE START DRYING OUT ACROSS THE
SOUTH PLAINS AND ROLLING PLAINS.  RAIN CHANCES ARE BEST FROM THE
CENTRAL SOUTH PLAINS THROUGH THE ROLLING PLAINS WITH SOME STORMS
POSSIBLY SEVERE.  THIS WOULD FAVOR FREQUENT LIGHTNING IN STRONGER
STORMS BUT RAINFALL ASSOCIATED WITH THEM SHOULD PUT OUT ANY FIRE
STARTS.  RAIN CHANCES END FROM WEST TO EAST THROUGH THE EVENING
INTO TONIGHT.  MONDAY MAY SEE A FEW SHOWERS BUT A WEAK COLD FRONT
WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES FROM WARMING UP TOO MUCH AND ALSO KEEP
LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE IN PLACE.  MINIMUM RH VALUES WILL RANGE FROM
30 TO 40 PERCENT TODAY BUT THEN FALL TO NEAR 25 PERCENT WEST TO
30 PERCENT SOUTHEAST.  AS A RESULT...FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS REMAIN
LOW THROUGH THIS FORECAST.
