Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0146 AM CST Tue Feb 19 2019
Valid 191200Z - 201200Z
A mid-level shortwave trough will eject into the Central Plains
during the day, with a surface low deepening across Chihuahua state
in Mexico, into southwest Texas. Breezy, dry conditions, atop dry
fine fuels, will promote some potential for fire spread across
portions of southwest Texas during the afternoon hours.
...Portions of southwest Texas...
As the surface low tracks near the Texas/Mexico border during the
afternoon hours, 20+ mph winds and 10-20% RH are expected to
materialize, particularly from the Sierra Vieja to the Chisos
Mountains. Critical conditions are possible across parts of the
elevated area during the afternoon (particularly along terrain
experiencing downslope flow from higher elevations), though the very
localized nature of these conditions precludes a critical
delineation. By evening, the stronger winds will subside, with
sufficient RH recovery expected, reducing the threat for wildfire
