Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Southeast Texas
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
1248 PM CST Thu Jan 18 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Warm air advection is returning to the region which will thicken up
clouds and increase light precipitation chances through the weekend.
Light rain will begin near the coast by late tomorrow and travel
further inland as a warm front comes ashore. There is a threat for
Friday into Saturday sea fog that may advect inland through Sunday.
A cold frontal passage late Sunday into early Monday will regulate
temperatures as the backing air mass will not be as cold nor dry
as this recent more arctic in nature cold blast.
