FIRE DANGER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BROWNSVILLE TX
335 AM CST WED FEB 3 2016

...ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS DEEP SOUTH TEXAS...

THE COMBINATION OF BUILDING HIGH PRESSURE AND ABUNDANT DRY AIR
MASS WITH VERY LOW HUMIDITY WILL FILTER IN ACROSS THE REGION
TODAY. THIS WILL ENHANCE LOW LEVEL FLOW WITH RELATIVELY TIGHTER
GRADIENT ACROSS DEEP SOUTH TEXAS SUPPORTING NORTHERLY WINDS
AROUND 15 TO 20 MPH WITH POSSIBLE GUSTS UP TO 25 MPH THIS
AFTERNOON. ALTHOUGH WINDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE VERY STRONG...
THE COMBINATION OF THE HIGH PRESSURE AND SUBTLE MID LEVEL FLOW
WILL OFFER SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS OF UP TO 15 MPH. POOR RH
RECOVERIES THIS MORNING AND WARMING TEMPERATURES WITH CLEAR
SKIES WILL AID FOR MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY THIS AFTERNOON TO
DROP INTO THE LOWER TEENS ACROSS THE AREA. THIS WILL IMPACT DEEP
SOUTH TEXAS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF COASTAL COUNTIES. NORTH TO
NORTHEAST ONSHORE FLOW WILL PRECLUDE ELEVATED CONCERNS NEAR THE
COAST.

DUE TO THE LACK OF RAIN IN THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS...FURTHER DRYING
FUELS OVER THE WESTERN COUNTIES IS EXPECTED. THESE CONDITIONS
COMBINE WITH DRY FUELS WILL PRODUCE ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS
ACROSS DEEP SOUTH TEXAS.
