FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE SOUTH PLAINS AREA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LUBBOCK TX
530 AM CDT WED APR 16 2014

.DISCUSSION...
WE WERE SEEING POOR RH RECOVERIES THIS MORNING...AND THIS WILL
LEAD TO A VERY DRY AFTERNOON WITH RH VALUES AT OR BELOW 10 PERCENT
FOR MOST OF THE AREA...AND AS LOW AS AROUND 5 PERCENT ON THE
CAPROCK. THESE DRY CONDITIONS WILL COMBINE WITH NEAR AVERAGE
TEMPERATURES AND BREEZY SOUTHERLY TO WESTERLY WINDS TO CREATE
ELEVATED TO BRIEFLY CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. THE STRONGEST WINDS...SUSTAINED AT 15-20 MPH...WILL BE
OFF THE CAPROCK...AND A FIRE DANGER STATEMENT IS IN EFFECT FOR
THIS AREA FROM MIDDAY TO 8 PM. WINDS WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN THIS
EVENING AS HUMIDITIES SLOWLY IMPROVE. A COLD FRONT WILL THEN MOVE
THROUGH TOMORROW SHIFTING WINDS AROUND TO THE NORTH AND
EAST...COOLING TEMPERATURES...AND RAISING HUMIDITIES FROM TODAY.
IN ADDITION...AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL GRAZE THE REGION
AND COULD BRING A FEW SHOWERS TO THE SOUTHEAST PANHANDLE OR
EASTERN ROLLING PLAINS TOMORROW. MORE WIDESPREAD AND BETTER RAIN
CHANCES STILL APPEAR MORE LIKELY BY EARLY THIS WEEKEND.
