GRASS FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORT WORTH TX
359 AM CDT TUE APR 25 2017

...ELEVATED FIRE THREAT TODAY ALONG AND WEST OF A LINE FROM BOWIE
TO WEATHERFORD TO GOLDTHWAITE...

THE COMBINATION OF HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS ALONG WITH GUSTY SOUTH-
SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL LEAD TO AN ELEVATED THREAT FOR GRASS FIRES
ACROSS THE WESTERN THIRD OF THE REGION, GENERALLY WEST OF THE
INTERSTATE 35 CORRIDOR. GREATER AMOUNTS OF MOISTURE IN THE LOWER
ATMOSPHERE SHOULD MITIGATE THE GRASS FIRE THREAT FOR AREAS FARTHER
EAST.

EXTREME CARE IS URGED DURING ALL OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES WHERE THERE
IS A POTENTIAL FOR GRASS FIRES TO GET STARTED. AVOID OUTSIDE
BURNING AND WELDING. DO NOT TOSS LIT CIGARETTE BUTTS OUTSIDE.
REPORT WILD FIRES TO THE NEAREST FIRE DEPARTMENT OR LAW
ENFORCEMENT OFFICE QUICKLY.
