.DISCUSSION...
Fire weather will become a concern again Wednesday as temperatures
warm back to unseasonably warm levels, and afternoon relative
humidities fall to near 20 percent. Winds look like they will
stay below red flag criteria, so will not issue a fire weather
watch at this time, but conditions will need to be monitored. A
cold front will move across the area Wednesday afternoon and
evening, resulting in cooler temperatures for Thursday and Friday.

An upper level storm system is forecast to lift northeast out of
northern Mexico across the southern Plains over the weekend. The
models have not shown good run to run consistency with this
system, with the latest solutions depicting a faster and wetter
system. Will introduce some slight chance to chance pops Saturday
night into Sunday, with dry conditions and above normal
temperatures to follow for the early part of next week.

Went a bit warmer than guidance for high temperatures Wednesday,
but stayed close to guidance temperatures otherwise for the next
couple days.
