A strong storm system will move through the Southern Plains on Sunday and will help generate scattered showers and thunderstorms along and east of a Pacific front/dryline during the afternoon hours. A few storms could be strong during the afternoon mainly east of I-35. To the west of the dryline, critical fire weather conditions are expected. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for part of the area. A cold front will move through Sunday night allowing temperatures to cool for Monday.
A strong storm system will move through the Southern Plains on Sunday and will send a Pacific front/dryline through the area during the afternoon hours. As this front moves through, west-southwest winds will increase to 20 to 30 mph with higher gusts. In addition, relative humidity will drop to 15 to 20% with temperatures in the lower 70s. This will lead to a critical fire weather threat mainly west of a Jacksboro to Comanche line. Winds are expected to remain gusty through the night although moisture will increase some after dark.
Here are some fire weather safety tips for those who will experience such conditions across western North-Central Texas Sunday afternoon and evening. Avoid outdoor burning at all costs and check county burn bans to see if yours is included. If driving, please do not toss lit cigarettes out a moving vehicle, as these can cause rapidly growing grass fires that quickly could affect structures nearby.
Dry and near or slightly above seasonal normal conditions are expected Monday through Wednesday. No rainfall is expected, with lows in the 30s and highs between 55 and 65 degrees.
