Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the South Plains Area
National Weather Service Lubbock TX
407 AM CST Thu Feb 23 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 8 PM CST
THIS EVENING FOR THE FAR SOUTHERN TEXAS PANHANDLE...SOUTH
PLAINS...AND ROLLING PLAINS FOR 20 FOOT WINDS OF 20 MPH OR
MORE...RELATIVE HUMIDITIES OF 15 PERCENT OR LESS AND A HIGH FIRE
DANGER...

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH
FRIDAY EVENING FOR THE FAR SOUTHWESTERN TEXAS PANHANDLE AND SOUTH
PLAINS FOR 20 FOOT WINDS OF 20 MPH OR MORE...RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
OF 15 PERCENT OR LESS AND A HIGH FIRE DANGER...

.DISCUSSION...
A period of active fire weather is expected over the next week.
Critical fire weather conditions will develop this afternoon over
the entire South Plains, Rolling Plains, and extreme southern
Texas Panhandle. Very warm temperatures and drying low levels will
result in relative humidity values less than 10 percent. Westerly
winds at 20 feet will reach speeds between 30 and 35 mph with
gusts to 50 mph on the caprock and 25 to 30 mph in the Rolling
Plains. The only concern is fuel moisture values remain somewhat
high and Energy Release Component values for both the High Plains
and Rolling Plains are close to average for this time of year and
well below the 90th percentile. Although the fuel moisture and ERC components
are a concern, the strong wind speeds and very low/dry RH values
should still result in the potential for rapid fire spreads.

The potential for critical fire weather conditions will continue
on Friday. Temperatures on Friday will be much closer to seasonal
averages but even drier air will move into the area behind a cold
front. Afternoon relative humidity values will still be between
10 and 15 percent. Winds are not anticipated to be as high on
Thursday but will still be between 20 and 30 mph on the caprock.

Lastly, Sunday through Tuesday are looking like strong westerly
winds will be possible as additional strong storm systems move
across the region. Temperatures will potentially be well above
normal and ongoing dry weather between now and next week will
continue to dry out and cure fuels across the South Plains and
Rolling Plains.
