FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE SOUTH PLAINS AREA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX
254 PM CDT MON SEP 29 2014

.DISCUSSION...
TEMPERATURES TUESDAY ARE EXPECTED TO BE THE WARMEST THEY HAVE
BEEN IN RECENT WEEKS...REACHING APPROXIMATELY 10 DEGREES ABOVE
AVERAGE AREA-WIDE. HOWEVER...SUFFICIENT MOISTURE IS EXPECTED TO
PREVENT RH VALUES FROM FALLING BELOW 30 PERCENT IN MOST
PLACES...AND WIND SPEEDS WILL REMAIN BELOW 20 KTS. THIS...COMBINED
WITH LINGERING SURFACE MOISTURE FROM RECENT RAINS...WILL KEEP FIRE
WEATHER CONDITIONS MINIMAL. THUNDERSTORMS FROM I-27 EASTWARD LATE
TUESDAY MAY PRODUCE CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES...BUT AGAIN
THE THREAT OF RAPIDLY SPREADING FIRES IS MINIMAL GIVEN THE
PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED FACTORS.  EARLY THURSDAY A COLD FRONT WILL
PUSH THROUGH THE AREA...BRINGING BREEZY BUT COOL NORTH WINDS
BETWEEN 15 AND 25 MILES PER HOUR.
