Spot Forecast for SHNF Compartment 84...US Forest Service
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
652 AM CST Fri Feb 24 2017

If conditions become unrepresentative...contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...
Any patchy fog present should dissipate relatively quickly this morning. Southerly
winds will become moderate to breezy this morning ahead of an approaching cold front.
The front should push through in the early afternoon and shift winds to northerly by
tonight. No rain is expected with the front. Low relative humidity for the next day
or two will come with drier post-frontal air. Fine fuels may respond to this lower
humidity, but high fuel moisture/low ERCs will mitigate fire weather concerns
where there are heavier fuels. Poorer nighttime humidity recovery should preclude fog
issues tonight.
