Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Deep South Texas
National Weather Service Brownsville TX
513 AM CST Thu Feb 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...Surface high pressure has moved off to the east and
light southeast winds have returned. Moisture levels have
increased enough to allow patchy dense fog to develop across
portions of Cameron County early this morning. Surface winds will
increase quickly along the coastal counties today...with gusty
conditions expected.

Meanwhile...downsloping winds across western portions of the
Valley will bring single digit to lower teens RH values from areas
along I-69C and west. However...20-foot winds in these areas
should remain below any critical thresholds. Areas east of I-69C
towards the coast will have higher RH values in the upper teens to
mid 30s. However...the 20-foot winds will be higher in these
areas...near or just below the critical threshold of 15 mph...with
gusts to 20 mph. Extremely warm high temperatures across the
region will add to the concern for erratic fire behavior and the
potential for wildfires to quickly become out of control. An RFD
has been issued to highlight the danger. It should be noted that
if the 20-foot winds increase further across coastal areas...a
Red Flag Warning will be necessary.

Winds will lessen tonight...however by Friday morning...a cold
dry cold front will push into the region bringing elevated
northwest winds. Given a reinforcing surge of dry air...it is
likely that Red Flag Warnings will be need across the western
half of the region at the very least.
