Fire Weather Watch
Statement as of 4:03 PM CDT on November 03, 2010
… Fire Weather Watch in effect from Thursday afternoon through
The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
Fire Weather Watch… which is in effect from Thursday afternoon
through Thursday evening.
Strong winds and dry humidity will affect southeast Texas on
Thursday. Winds of 15 to 25 mph inland and 25 to 35 mph at the
coast will be common through early afternoon. The humidity will
drop to between 20 and 25 percent.
Although many areas will begin with wet ground conditions… the
windy and dry conditions will help to dry out surface fuels and
generate critical fire weather conditions during the afternoon.
A Fire Weather Watch means that critical fire weather conditions
are forecast to occur. Listen for later forecasts and possible
red flag warnings.
