Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Deep South Texas
National Weather Service Brownsville TX
604 AM CST Fri Feb 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 6 PM CST THIS
EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...

An extremely dangerous fire weather day is expected across much
of Deep South Texas. A dry cold front will move into the Western
Ranchlands this morning and push into the Lower RGV by early
afternoon. The 20-foot winds will increase through the afternoon
as stronger northwest winds move across the region. Extremely dry
air has been in place through the past week...and with the front
bringing higher winds and more dry conditions...a Red Flag
Warning has been issued. The greatest risk will be across the Mid
to Upper Valley and into the Northwestern Ranchlands.
However...all areas generally along and west of the I-69E corridor
will be at risk. Winds will veer to the north to northeast by
this evening with winds lessening near sunset. High pressure will
build over Northern Texas on Saturday...with lighter winds and
increasing moisture levels.
