FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE SOUTH PLAINS AREA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX
450 AM CDT TUE APR 22 2014

...A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
WEDNESDAY EVENING FOR WIND SPEEDS OF 20 MPH OR MORE AT THE TWENTY
FOOT LEVEL...RELATIVE HUMIDITIES OF 15 PERCENT OR LESS...AND A HIGH
FIRE DANGER FOR THE FAR SOUTHWEST TEXAS PANHANDLE AND PORTIONS OF
THE WESTERN SOUTH PLAINS...

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL TREND BREEZY THIS AFTERNOON BUT REMAIN MOIST
ENOUGH TO STAVE OFF ANY ELEVATED FIRE CONCERNS. BY WEDNESDAY...A
DRYLINE WILL BECOME STAGED NEAR I-27 AHEAD OF BREEZY SOUTHWEST WINDS
AND SHARPLY DRIER AIR. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED EAST OF THE
DRYLINE. THE MAGNITUDE OF WINDS BEHIND THE DRYLINE APPEARS SUFFICIENT
ENOUGH FOR SOME CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AS RH VALUES SHOULD EASILY TUMBLE
TO 10 PERCENT OR LESS...ALTHOUGH THE MOST CONSISTENT 3-HOUR WINDS OF
20 MPH CURRENTLY FAVORS AREAS ALONG AND WEST OF A DIMMITT TO MORTON
LINE WHERE A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT.

A POTENTIALLY MORE ROBUST FIRE WEATHER THREAT IS POSSIBLE BY SATURDAY
FOR MOST OF THE SOUTH PLAINS AS A VIGOROUS STORM SYSTEM IMPACTS THE
REGION.
