Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
552 AM CDT Wed Mar 29 2017

...ELEVATED TO NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS EXPECTED OVER
THE SOUTHERN EDWARDS PLATEAU THIS AFTERNOON...

.DISCUSSION...
Gusty west to northwest winds of 20 to 25 mph with gusts over 35
mph are possible over western Val Verde county this afternoon. The
breezy conditions will combine with a deep mixing of the
atmosphere to result in excellent drying and very low afternoon
relative humidity values below 20 percent over areas along the Rio
Grande. Although much of the area received a wetting rain
overnight, the afternoon drying will still make conditions
favorable for the spread of fires. Winds should diminish by this
evening with mostly a light wind environment expected for
Thursday. Breezy and dry conditions will occur again Friday, but
humidities may increase late in the day. Another storm system will
reach the area Saturday, with more strong storms possible late
Saturday into Sunday.
