FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE SOUTH PLAINS AREA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX
401 AM CST FRI FEB 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DRY AIR WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE SOUTH PLAINS REGION TODAY
WHILE A COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH. THE STRONGEST WINDS /SUSTAINED AT
20 TO 30 MPH/ WILL OCCUR BEHIND THE FRONT ACROSS MUCH OF THE CAPROCK
THIS AFTERNOON. THESE STRONG WINDS DO RAISE SOME CONCERN GIVEN THE
RECENT UPTICK IN FIRE ACTIVITY...BUT RH VALUES ABOVE 15 PERCENT
COUPLED WITH TEMPERATURES 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE WILL TEND TO
MITIGATE THE OVERALL FIRE DANGER. IN ADVANCE OF THE FRONT NEAR
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITIES DIPPING TO 20 PERCENT OR LOWER
COULD ELEVATE THE FIRE DANGER IN THE ROLLING PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON.
HOWEVER THE WARMEST AND DRIEST CONDITIONS WILL ALSO LIKELY OCCUR
WHEN THE WINDS ARE AT A RELATIVE MINIMUM WHICH WILL TEND TO LIMIT
THE OVERALL FIRE DANGER.
