A Wind Advisory is now in effect for all of Deep South Texas starting at 9 AM Sunday. A very dry cold front will move through the area tonight and will bring strong northwest winds behind it, which may gust up to 45 mph at times. Be careful when you are driving tomorrow and make sure outdoor lawn items are secure.
Dangerous marine conditions are expected late tonight into Sunday afternoon due to the passage of a strong (dry) cold front. Winds may locally gust up to Storm Force tomorrow, so it will be very hazardous for anyone out there boating or fishing tomorrow.
With much lower humidity today, temperatures will drop from the 90s this afternoon to the 50s overnight with mostly clear skies expected. A strong storm system will move eastward across the Southern Plains and bring an associated cold front through our area tonight. It will not bring much of a temperature change, but it will bring very dry air and windy conditions tomorrow. A Red Flag Warning and Wind Advisory have been issued all day tomorrow, so we HIGHLY suggest avoiding any kind of burning tomorrow. Any fires that ignite will spread very rapidly.
There is a high fire spread danger for Sunday across all of Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. A Red Flag Warning is now in effect area-wide for Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm CST. Any fires that develop will have the ability to spread quickly as a result of low humidity values and windy conditions from the northwest.
A dry cold front moves across Deep South Texas late tonight into Sunday morning bringing strong northwesterly winds of 30 to 40 mph with gusts to around 45 mph in its wake and a wind advisory will likely be needed. The combination of the strong and gusty winds and low relative humidity, will lead to a high fire danger on Sunday. Next week starts off dry and sunny with above normal temperatures and the next cold front pushes across the region on Wednesday bringing slightly cooler temperatures.
