Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
447 AM CST Sat Feb 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Patchy areas of fog and widespread low clouds will occur this
morning across the coastal plains into portions of the I-35
corridor. Low clouds and fog will quickly dissipate shortly after
dawn. High mixing heights and warm temperatures will abound today
with ample sun and SW winds near 10 mph. A sporadic 15 mph wind
gusts will be possible as well. Relative humidity values will fall
into the low 20 percentiles across the Edwards Plateau and into
the Rio Grande Plains where temperatures will soar into the mid
and upper 80s. Some areas in far SW towards the Rio Grande River
will reach near 90F. More widespread clouds will occur Sunday
morning as light rain develops over the south plateau, Hill
country and I-35 corridor. Stronger showers and thunderstorms will
be likely Sunday afternoon and a widespread rain event will occur
Sunday night into Monday morning for central and eastern areas.
Rainfall will end west to east Monday afternoon.

A dry forecast is expected through the rest of the week with a
cold frontal passage on Friday. Limited moisture looks to be
available ahead of the front and it should be a dry passage.
