This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for South-Central Texas..

.DAY ONE...Today And Tonight.

A Red Flag Warning has been issued for portions of the area for
this afternoon and early evening from noon to 7pm. This includes
portions of the Hill Country, southern Edwards Plateau, and the
Rio Grande Plains. This area also includes Bexar County and the
San Antonio Metro area. Combination of humidity values dropping to
the 10 to 20 percent range this afternoon along with sustained
winds of 15 to 25 mph and gusts to near 35 mph at times, a Red
Flag Warning has been issued along and west of the US Highway 281
corridor. While fuel dryness remains near average for this time
of year, the 1-hour and 10-hour fuel moisture has dropped over the
past week with the warm temperatures and lack of recent rainfall.
Humidity values will recover through the evening and winds will
decrease - allowing for fire spreadability potential to decrease
after 7pm. Elevated fire weather conditions will exist across the
rest of the area with only the far east remaining above 30 percent
humidity wise. Any outdoor burning is highly discouraged today!

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Elevated fire weather concerns could arise again Friday and next
week as persistent warmer than normal temperatures occur with
limited rain chances.
