FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR TEXAS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX
457 AM CDT FRI APR 24 2015

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL DEVELOP TODAY AS AN UPPER LEVEL LOW
PRESSURE TROUGH ALONG THE ARIZONA AND NEW MEXICO BORDER THIS MORNING
MOVES INTO WESTERN KANSAS LATE IN THE DAY. DRY AND WARM CONDITIONS
ALSO WILL PREVAIL LEADING TO ELEVATED FIRE DANGER. PREVIOUS RAINFALL
AND THE SIGNIFICANT GREENING SO FAR THIS SPRING SHOULD MITIGATE MORE
EXTREME FIRE DANGER TO A LARGE EXTENT...ALTHOUGH WIND SPEEDS NEAR 30
MPH WITH GUSTS AROUND 50 MPH ARE ENOUGH TO CAUSE CONCERN FOR ANY
LINGERING CURED AREAS OF GRASS OR FINE FUEL...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
EXTREME SOUTHWEST PANHANDLE WHICH HAS NOT RECEIVED QUITE AS MUCH RAIN
OF LATE. DRY...BREEZY...AND MILD CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN SATURDAY
ALTHOUGH WITH WIND SPEEDS LIGHTER THAN TODAY. SUNDAY AS WELL WILL
REMAIN DRY AND MILD. RAIN CHANCES WILL IMPROVE EARLY NEXT WEEK.
