Warm temperatures along with gusty northwest winds and low humidities will lead to critical fire weather conditions along the Rio Grande and portions of the southern Edwards plateau today.

Elsewhere, near critical fire weather conditions are expected across the remainder of south central Texas today as northwest winds increase and afternoon humidities drop into the near 15 - 20% range.
