...Critical Fire Weather Conditions Expected on Monday Morning Through Monday Evening across the western Hill Country, Edwards Plateau, Rio Grande Plains, and Winter Garden regions... Dry, gusty, and warm conditions will prevail on Monday behind a Pacific cold front. Relative humidity values will fall to very low values of 5 to 20 percent Monday afternoon. At the same time, northwest winds are forecast to be around 10 to 20 mph with occasional gusts to 25 to 30 mph. This will result in critical fire weather conditions for the western Hill Country, Edwards Plateau, Rio Grande Plains, and Winter Garden regions, especially when combined with ongoing drought conditions and dry fuels. The most likely areas to experience critical fire weather conditions will be near a Burnet to Hondo to Carrizo Springs line and west to the Rio Grande. Near critical to critical fire weather conditions are also expected in the eastern Hill Country, Austin and San Antonio metro areas, and portions of the Coastal Plains. The Red Flag Warning may need to be expanded farther east if confidence increases in wind speeds to trend higher. ...RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM TO 7 PM CDT MONDAY FOR VERY DRY CONDITIONS AND GUSTY WINDS... * AFFECTED AREA...Western Hill Country, Edwards Plateau, Rio Grande Plains, and Winter Garden regions. * WIND...Northwest 15 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph. * HUMIDITY...5 to 10 percent. * IMPACTS...Any fires that develop will spread rapidly.
