Fire Weather Planning Forecast For South Texas
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
618 AM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...Isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected to
diminish through the early morning, with then patchy light
rain/showers across northern areas from Cotulla to Victoria
diminishing through late morning. A frontal boundary will then
move into South Texas tonight and push through on Sunday,
bringing cooler temperatures and providing a focus for showers and
a few thunderstorms late Saturday night and Sunday. A weak to
moderate northerly flow will occur in the wake of the front Sunday
night and Monday. Drier air will move into the area Sunday night,
ending the chances for rain. High pressure will move into Texas
early Monday, then shift rapidly to the east Monday night. As a
result, moisture will increase, with areas of light rain, drizzle
and fog developing overnight. Onshore flow will develop on Tuesday
as the front moves north of South Texas, resulting in above
normal temperatures Tuesday and even warmer temperatures on
Wednesday. While winds increase on Wednesday to moderate levels
over the eastern portions of South Texas, adequate humidity will
preclude any elevated or critical fire weather concerns. Another
cold front and upper disturbance move across Texas Wednesday
night, providing for another chance for showers and thunderstorms.
Drier and slightly cooler air moves in on Thursday, with high
pressure settling into Texas on Friday, resulting in mild
conditions and no rainfall. No critical or elevated fire weather
conditions are expected through the period.
