Another day of above normal temperatures can be expected across south central Texas. Highs will range from the mid 70s to mid 80s. In addition, the dry and warm weather will lead to critical fire weather conditions along the Rio Grande and southern Edwards plateau, with near critical fire weather conditions across the remainder of south central Texas.
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. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the mentioned areas between 11 AM and 5 PM. Outdoor burning or activities that involve sparks are discouraged. 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.
Behind a cold front, temperatures will drop to near normal on Saturday. A warming trend with increasing moisture will begin on Sunday and continue through Tuesday. An upper level disturbance will generate isolated showers and thunderstorms Sunday into Sunday night. Isolated showers are also possible on Tuesday across the eastern areas.
