An elevated fire danger is in effect for most of DFW tomorrow as drier conditions are expected to surge behind a cold front Wednesday afternoon. Wind gusts could reach up to 30 mph in some areas. Here's the latest:
Strong/gusty north-northwesterly winds around 15-25 mph are expected to occur mainly behind the surface cold front Wednesday afternoon. Although low-level cold air advection will occur behind the front, surface temperatures may still reach into the 50s and perhaps low 60s across parts of the southern Plains with diurnal heating. Lowered RH values ranging from around 15% across the High Plains to 25% across parts of central TX and southern OK will combine with the strong/gusty winds and at least marginally receptive fuels to promote elevated conditions Wednesday afternoon.
Isolated showers and possibly severe T-Storms are expected Southeast of DFW during the afternoon and evening hours. Those storms will be fueled by the same cold front that is expected to march across DFW.
Unfortunately, DFW is still under a drought, and there are not very many big rain chances. Luckily, we do have one rain chance next week, but it could include severe weather with it.
